The latest preview of the BMW XM concept car revealed

BMW officially released the latest preview of its new model, BMW XM. The new car will be publicly displayed at Art Basel in December.

The concept car uses a huge kidney grille design, and is decorated with LED light strips around it. The lamp groups on both sides are long and narrow, and the appearance is extremely fierce, but also full of sense of science and technology.

It is reported that the mass-produced car based on this concept car in the future will become BMW's latest flagship SUV product, and it will be independently developed by BMW's M department. It is expected to be positioned as a high-performance SUV equipped with a plug-in hybrid power system.

Motor1 has taken spy photos of suspected BMW's latest flagship SUV, which may be this XM.

BYD signs an order for 70 pure electric buses in Finland

According to electrive reports, BYD has signed an order for 70 pure electric buses with Nobina, the largest public transport operator in Northern Europe. This is the second time BYD has joined hands with Nobina to promote the electrification of public transport in Finland after BYD delivered the largest fleet of pure electric buses in Finland this summer.

In August of this year, the largest pure electric bus fleet in Finnish history (119 units in total) built by BYD for Nobina has been put into operation as scheduled. So far, the fleet has safely driven more than 1 million kilometers, which is equivalent to reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 1,400 tons.

BYD already has more than 600 pure electric buses operating in the back area.

Weilai Aspen 3.0.7 version adds battery charging preheating function

NIO announced that starting from November 28th, it will push Aspen 3.0.7 in batches for vehicles with the current version 3.0.0 and above through FOTA. It is reported that this update mainly adds a battery charging preheating function. .

In order to improve the winter fast charging experience, the new version adds a battery charging preheating function. On the way to the overcharging station, the vehicle will pre-heat the battery to save the time for the battery to heat up during fast charging and improve the fast charging efficiency.

Battery charging preheating is divided into two methods: "low temperature charging preheating" and "manual charging preheating". The default is off. You can enter the Settings-My-Battery interface to turn on according to your own habits.

No, it just happened to be winter. (Although I am in Guangdong, I still can't feel it)

Jidu debuts Snapdragon 888 car version-8295 chip

Baidu, Jidu and Qualcomm Technologies announced today that Jidu’s first mass-produced model will use the smart digital cockpit system jointly supported by Baidu and Qualcomm Technologies, which is based on Qualcomm’s fourth-generation Snapdragon automotive digital platform 8295. .

Xiaolong 8295? It sounds strange, but in fact, this is the car version of Snapdragon 888. According to Qualcomm's classification, Snapdragon 820A, SA8155 and SA8295 belong to Qualcomm's second, third, and fourth-generation digital cockpit platforms, respectively.

Among the currently known car-level cockpit chips, Qualcomm 8295 can be called an epoch-making product. Compared with the 8155, this chip has greatly improved high-performance computing and AI processing. The NPU computing power used for AI learning has reached 30TOPS, which is almost 8 times that of the 8155.

Don’t be afraid to hear Snapdragon 888. The car is much larger than the mobile phone, and the heat dissipation pressure is not so great (manual dog head).

New Subaru WRX S4, LEVORG STI released

Subaru officially released the new Subaru WRX S4 and Subaru LEVORG STI Sport R yesterday.

GM claims to be a leader in electric vehicles, Musk responds

Earlier this month, GM CEO Mary Barra said in an interview: GM is the leader in the electric vehicle market. Not only that, she also said that she “will not give up leadership to anyone.”

On the 27th, Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to the remarks of General Motors CEO for the first time:

Assuming that they really produce a lot of electric cars, then they are the leaders.

At present, the performance of GM's EV is still relatively ordinary. Its popular Chevrolet Bolt EV is still in a state of discontinuation due to battery safety issues, and the GMC Hummer EV has just started production, not to mention the Cadillac Lyriq that has just started pre-sales.

In contrast, Ford has to be "pragmatic" a lot. Their goal is to become the number two in the U.S. electric car market within two years, second only to Tesla.

From "buy, buy, buy" to "sell, sell, sell."

"Core deficiency" has been alleviated, and the pick-up cycle of 4S stores has been shortened

"Because of the lack of cores, it took at least two months to pick up the car. Recently, one month to one and a half months can be used to pick up the car." Said an ideal car sales executive.

Compared with the “hard to find a car” during the “Golden Nine and Silver Ten” period, the current best-selling models of popular brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW are basically available in stock, and the discounts have returned to the level before the lack of core, and the car is also mentioned. The cycle has basically returned to normal.

"In September, there were no show cars. Now it has basically eased up. Popular domestic models are available, and the discounts have been restored." said a salesperson at a FAW-Volkswagen Audi 4S store in Yizhuang, Beijing.

Nissan, Ford, Toyota and many other auto companies have also announced recently that they will increase auto production in different regions of the world. Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the Association of Passenger Cars, said that the global new crown pneumonia epidemic has gradually improved recently, and the passenger car market production and wholesale have improved, and the darkest moment of chip supply in the passenger car market has passed.

However, some host manufacturers also said that the shortage of automotive chips still exists. If you want to know more, you can jump to this article in "China Securities Journal".

BMW eDrive Zones: Points can be exchanged for pure electric driving

A few days ago, BMW newly opened the BMW eDrive Zones service in 20 European cities including Copenhagen, Verona and Toulouse. At present, a total of 138 cities in Europe can enjoy the service policy.

The eDrive Zones service content is: After driving a BMW plug-in hybrid vehicle into a designated area and switching to pure electric driving, the corresponding reward points can be obtained, and users can exchange these points for charging points.

According to statistics, 75% of users in the designated area of ​​the service travel in pure electric mode. Since BMW launched eDrive Zones in the summer of 2020, users have earned about 150 million points, which is equivalent to 2.9 GWh of electricity. .

The new domestic forces may wish to refer to it to see if a similar reward policy can be implemented in the country.

Tesla: The overcharge network has covered Guangdong's inter-provincial traffic arteries

Sir Frank Williams, founder of the Williams Racing Team, dies

The Williams team issued a statement last night stating that the great F1 team leader Sir Frank Williams passed away at the age of 79.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said: "In this sport, he is a true giant. He has overcome the most difficult challenges in life. He is constantly fighting every day. ."

In 1977, Sir Frank established the current Williams team. In his nearly 40 years of leading the team, he has witnessed 114 victories, 312 podiums, 128 pole positions, 9 7 annual championships and 7 drivers championships.

Seven-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton wrote on social media: "I know he is still a racer, a man full of fighting spirit. His legacy will be passed on forever."

As one of Williams's rivals, Ferrari said: "We pay tribute to this great man who played an important role in the history of F1 racing. Sir Frank is passionate about motorsports and he is a firm and brave opponent. Leading the team named after him was a huge success."

Mercedes-Benz EQA cloud test drive: not just technology

The Mercedes-Benz EQA and EQB, which were listed at the Guangzhou Auto Show, are the second and third pure electric vehicles of this luxury car manufacturer, respectively. If you think this number is not a big deal, then please note that in another 12 months, this number will become 7 models.

This time, we are driving an EQA 300, starting from Lujiazui, Shanghai. This EQA uses the prosperous neighborhood as the background, and it shuttles freely in the turbulence of car steel.

Even though the interior of the electric car does not seem to have much room for movement-it is almost exclusively unfolded around the central large screen. But Mercedes-Benz still retains its traditional strengths, and has not been biased by the times.

Thick and sturdy steering wheel, dual 10.25-inch high-definition touch screen displays of moderate size, metallic glare air-conditioning vents under the central control, Nebula streamer trims on the dashboard in front of the co-pilot, and Mercedes-Benz’s “killer” With 64-color atmosphere lights, the building stands outside the car, the atmosphere inside the car is colorful, and the atmosphere value is directly full.

Step on the switch, EQA is equipped with front and rear dual motors, with a total power of 168 kilowatts and a torque of 390 N·m. Unlike the "burst start" deliberately tuned by the new forces' electric vehicles, such data shows a silky smooth, unobtrusive linear experience on a compact SUV.

Of course, the complicated road conditions in Shanghai are not suitable for any "hurried roar" drivers. The navigation system developed by Mercedes-Benz and AutoNavi in-depth cooperation on EQA can minimize your anxiety. 3D map display, real-time navigation pop-up at complex intersections, dashboard and HUD information prompts, can make you a qualified urban explorer.

Today's topic: Would you consider buying a Musk statue?

With 64.95 million followers on Twitter, Tesla CEO Musk has become a veritable "big influencer", and even his words and deeds can affect the stock price trend of some companies and the market of virtual currencies.

So if there is a Musk statue on sale, would you consider buying one and putting it at home?

The Russian-based luxury accessories company Caviar is selling Musk’s busts. According to Caviar’s marketing director, half of the bust’s material came from a blue Tesla Model 3.

Putting the Musk statue at home, fasting, bathing, burning incense and paying homage every day, should it bless the stocks and virtual currency to keep rising?

What? You say you don't like Musk? There are also Jack Ma and Jobs.
