Recently, the Chengdu Municipal Transportation Bureau and other six departments jointly issued and implemented the "Chengdu Online Taxi Service Management Implementation Rules."
In the implementation rules, it is clear that new-energy vehicles must be used for newly purchased vehicles.

It is understood that the rules will be officially implemented on July 26, and at the same time, the "Chengdu Online Taxi Service Management Implementation Rules (Interim)" issued on November 5, 2016 will be abolished. (Via Fast Technology)
The current car-hailing services are basically new energy vehicles.
On the evening of August 3, a screenshot of a WeChat group chat sent Nezha car into the air of public opinion in an instant.
An executive put forward the idea of inviting a certain public opinion star as a spokesperson: "The official announced that he would be a spokesperson, telling everyone that we still have to give him a chance, and the bad guys also need opportunities."
Then he explained: "This matter has been out of the circle in five minutes. In fact, you can try it. The big deal is that I will apologize and expel the relevant personnel later."
The executive said it was true. Two hours later, Nezha Automobile officially issued a document stating that the remarks of individual internal personnel had seriously caused extremely bad effects, and it was decided to expel the executive and all other personnel who made inappropriate remarks.
Immediately afterwards, Nezha Automobile CEO Zhang Yong publicly stated that he would expel all half of the brand public relations team leaders who participated in the discussion.
Where is the bottom line of car company marketing?
In the auto industry where brands are fighting, in order to occupy the cognitive high ground in the minds of users, auto companies have been painstakingly marketing for a long time.
It is not difficult to see from the real money invested by major auto companies in marketing every year that auto companies attach great importance to brand image maintenance and product promotion. In 2019 alone, Volkswagen and Honda invested more than 100 billion yuan in marketing expenses.
For car companies, the constant innovation and breakthrough creativity can undoubtedly bring positive exposure to the brand, but in order to gain attention, the vulgar "shaking" as creative marketing is destined to overturn and bring damage to the brand.
For Nezha, there are various uncertainties behind the rush to get out of the circle or its prospects.
In July this year, Nezha Automobile delivered 6,011 vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 392%. But from the perspective of its sales structure, Nezha’s current three models on sale cover the range of 50,000 to 180,000 yuan, and the current sales are mainly Nezha V with a price of 59,900 yuan. The competitiveness of other products Slightly insufficient.
In April this year, Zhang Yong said in an interview with the media that Nezha Auto’s original goal of sprinting for an IPO in 2021 “may change.” This is undoubtedly another challenge for new cars that require long-term blood transfusion. (Via Future Car Daily)
