When Tesla's CyberTruck electric pickups bounced one after another, its number one rival, Rivian R1T pure electric pickups, has already begun to be delivered.
Rivian said that as of October 22, they have produced a total of 56 R1Ts, of which 42 have been delivered to customers.
Compared with the appearance and price of the vehicle, the dynamic performance of the vehicle is more worthy of attention. The R1T has four motors with a combined maximum power of 800 horsepower, a peak torque of 14000N·m, and an acceleration of only 2.8 seconds.
However, there is news that Rivian can only produce 2 R1Ts per day. At the current rate, Rivian’s funds may not be enough for them to complete the delivery of 48,000 orders. (Quick Technology)
R1T has a very interesting function, because its four wheels can be driven independently, it can achieve a function similar to "tank turning".
The 100,000 Ideal ONE of Ideal Motors officially rolled off the production line at the Changzhou base, and the Ideal ONE has also become the first new car-making product with a single model exceeding 100,000 production.
Shen Yanan, co-founder and president of Ideal Motors, said that Ideal ONE achieved the production of 100,000 vehicles in only 708 days, marking the market's recognition of its product strength.
In terms of new car planning, Ideal Auto will launch the first product based on the X platform, the next-generation extended range electric platform-Ideal X01. In addition, Ideal will launch two other SUV models in 2023. (Sina Motors)
For an ideal car that focuses on second- and third-tier cities, the extended range is still the optimal solution.
Recently, the price of Xiaopeng P7 in Norway was officially announced. The starting price of the rear-wheel drive version is 439,900 Norwegian kroner (about 335,000 yuan); the starting price of the four-wheel-drive version is 499,900 Norwegian kroner (about 381,100 yuan); the P7 Pengyi version is sold in a limited edition, priced at 599,900 Norwegian kroner (about 457,300 yuan).
At present, Xiaopeng has established 17 sales outlets and 21 service outlets locally in Norway. Christian Hem, Sales Director of Xiaopeng Norway, said, “Consumers can test drive the Xiaopeng P7 at all major sales outlets in Norway as soon as mid-November. ." (New trip)
Being able to establish a sales network within a certain period of time, Xiaopeng's organizational and operational capabilities are worthy of recognition.
Model Y will add three new car paint colors
In the latest 4.2.1 version of Tesla's app, three new car paints produced by the Berlin Super Factory in Germany have been updated, which gives European car owners more choices in car body colors.
The three new colors are "Crimson Red", "Abyss Blue" and "Metallic Silver".
Earlier this month, Musk said that there are too many white Model 3 and Model Y on the road (different from China, the free paint color in the United States is white), so he considered "metallic silver" as Model Y Factory color.

Which one do you think is good? Dong Chejun prefers this "metallic silver".
BMW Group launches large-scale remote software upgrade
On October 27, the BMW Group announced the launch of the largest and most extensive remote software upgrade to date.
Globally, about 2 million BMW cars can be upgraded through OTA, and the models cover more than 20 models including BMW 3 series, BMW 5 series, BMW M3 and BMW M4.
This upgrade focuses on expanding and improving driver assistance functions. The newly added Assisted View will display the current lane situation through the dashboard when the driver turns on ACC. At the same time, the optimized lane departure system can also provide more accurate departure warning.
For the BMW M series, BMW has added M Sound Control to BMW M3 and BMW M4, which can provide a better sound experience. In addition, the newly added M Track Mode allows the driver to temporarily turn off the comfort system, active safety system and driver assistance system to reduce driving interference.
I love this M Track Mode, press the second to change the owner. (Dog head)
Motor1 recently obtained a set of road test spy photos of the new AMG GLC43.
It is reported that the new car will be equipped with a high-power 2.0T engine code-named M139, and will be renamed GLC45 when it goes on the market, and will be released next year.
In terms of appearance, the new car is still covered by a large number of camouflage stickers, and the size of the front grille is suspected to have increased, but the China Open is still AMG's classic straight waterfall design.
In addition, the shape of the headlights of the new car has also been adjusted, and LED light strips similar to the C-class are provided inside.

The displacement decreases and the number becomes larger.
Mercedes-Benz will equip entry-level new energy vehicles with lithium iron phosphate batteries
Daimler Group CEO Ola Källenius said on Wednesday that Mercedes-Benz will use lithium iron phosphate batteries in its entry-level new energy vehicles (such as EQA and EQB) from 2024 to reduce costs.
Compared with the ternary lithium battery used in high-end models such as EQS, although the energy storage of the lithium iron phosphate battery is not as good as the former, it is better than the ternary lithium battery in terms of stability and cost.
Kang Linsong believes that as the price of key raw materials rises, consumers will accept shorter but cheaper models.
Not only Mercedes-Benz like lithium iron phosphate batteries, Musk also announced last week that Tesla's standard endurance models will fully use lithium iron phosphate batteries.
Tesla's third-quarter financial report showed that Tesla's third-quarter revenue increased by 57% year-on-year to 13.757 billion U.S. dollars and net profit was 1.618 billion U.S. dollars.
In the past, selling carbon credits has always been Tesla's main source of income. Unlike the past, now, selling cars is Tesla's main source.
In the third quarter of this year, Tesla delivered 241,000 new cars globally, a significant increase of 73% year-on-year.
In addition, the financial report shows that Tesla's car gross profit margin reached 30.5%, a figure that even the world's most profitable car company Toyota can't match.
Regarding the increase in gross profit margin and operating profit margin, Tesla said it was due to the decrease in cost greater than the decrease in average selling price. At the same time, more affordable prices have also attracted more consumers. (Future Automobile Daily)
However, as sales continue to rise, Tesla is still facing many supply chain problems.
BYD released its third-quarter financial report, net profit fell
This afternoon, BYD released its third-quarter financial report. The financial report shows that BYD achieved a net profit of 1.27 billion yuan in the third quarter, a year-on-year decrease of 27.5%, and the first three quarters achieved a net profit of 2.443 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 28.43%.
Prior to this, BYD sold a total of 79,037 vehicles in September, of which 70022 were new energy models, a year-on-year increase of 276.4%. Among them, the sales volume of DM models was 33716 units, and the sales volume of EV models was 36306 units.
The volatility caused by the shortage of chips continues. At the same time, the "dual control policy" restricts short-term production and also has a certain impact on revenue.
Xiaopeng Motors officially runs through the Beijing-Shanghai, Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao high-speed charging routes
Today, Xiaopeng Motors officially runs through the Beijing-Shanghai, Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao high-speed charging routes. Among them, there are 30 overcharging stations in the high-speed service area and the overcharging stations within 5 kilometers of the high-speed intersection, spanning 3,500+ kilometers.
In other words, on the Beijing-Shanghai Expressway and the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway, on average, there is an overcharge station exclusively for Xiaopeng owners for every 170 kilometers. Not only is it free, but more importantly, it has high power (double gun 180 kW) and has a ground lock, so there is no need to worry about the space occupied by the fuel vehicle. (New trip)
So far, Xiaopeng Motors has become the first domestic car manufacturer to connect charging routes between Beijing, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau.
High-performance electric tricycle from Canada
The Spiritus, about 3.8 meters long, is a two-seater tricycle of the Avvenire series, built by the Canadian electric vehicle company Daymak.
According to reports, this tricycle’s 100-kilometer acceleration is faster than Model S Plaid’s 2.1 seconds—the Spiritus Carbon Fiber Ultimate Edition, priced at $149,000 (about 952,000 yuan), can accelerate to 100 kilometers in 1.8 seconds, and its cruising range is up to 480 kilometers.
The appearance of this tricycle is also quite aggressive, with propeller-style taillights coming out of the rear of the car, and wide tires underneath.
Next, Daymak also considers adding a wireless charging system to Spiritus, and will also adjust the torque distribution system. The car plans to achieve mass production in 2023.
What's interesting is that this small tricycle can also use Daymak's Nebula kit to mine bitcoins, making itself a sideline for the owner.
Raikkonen: No need for "substitutes" to find excitement after retirement
There are only 5 races left until the end of the legendary driver Kimi Raikkonen’s F1 career. If he can successfully complete the remaining races, he will set the record for the most races in F1 history at 349 games.
When Raikkonen was asked how he would look for something similar to fill the excitement brought by F1 after retiring, he said he was not worried.
I don't think there is a need to find a substitute. This is a very common thing, at least for me. I have been doing it for many, many years. It is no different from driving other cars. Other things I do are much more dangerous than this.
After being asked what exciting things he would do after retiring, he replied: "Sometimes when I bring a baby at home, I get very excited."
Kimi is Dong Chejun's favorite F1 driver, and he is really reluctant to retire.
Before the invention of the electric lamp, the most mainstream lighting tool was the kerosene lamp. It was from the kerosene lamp that the car headlights began to be upgraded and replaced with the wave of the electrical revolution.
At that time, people placed the Croupin reflector behind the kerosene lamp, making the kerosene lamp a "spotlight," which was the embryonic form of the car lamp.
In the early twentieth century, acetylene lamps with higher brightness and relatively mature stability became the first choice for vehicle headlights at that time, but their shortcomings were also obvious: they were afraid of water and would produce corrosive soda lime.
Although Edison invented the carbon filament lamp, the fragile carbon filament was not suitable for use in bumpy cars, so the tungsten filament lamp with better shock resistance was born.
Incandescent lamps signify that vehicle lighting technology bids farewell to the "open flame era" and enters a new era of electrification.
However, because the brightness of ordinary tungsten filament lamps is average, and long-term use will make the lamp shade black, halogen lamps were invented.
However, the color of the halogen lamp is yellowish and the lighting brightness is insufficient. The driver may look down on the road ahead. Therefore, the xenon lamp has appeared.
Everyone should be familiar with it. Energy-saving, low-cost, and long-life LED headlights have also been born.
If only by appearance, there is no difference between the following laser headlights and LED headlights, but the laser headlights are ahead in terms of energy consumption, brightness or lighting distance.
The disadvantage is that the cost is relatively high. In the case of low visibility, traditional halogen car lights will have better lighting effects, and durability is also a problem.
Today's topic: Will you choose Volkswagen ID.3?
Yesterday we talked about whether we can accept the issue of "delivery first, then reinstall" under the background of "difficult delivery" of automobiles. Dong Chejun discovered that many friends are still willing to wait.
If you really like this car and you have something to give away, I think it’s very cost-effective to mention the car and then reinstall it, provided that the contract is clearly stated.
If you are still hesitating, you can wait for the party, and new cars will keep popping up.
Sure enough, wait for the party to never lose, right?
On October 22, SAIC Volkswagen ID.3 was officially launched, with an official guide price of 159,888-17.3888 yuan, and a range of 430 kilometers for the entire system.
However, when the new car was just launched, some car owners broke the news. SAIC Volkswagen’s 4S store sales indicated that there was a discount of 10,000 yuan.
You should know that the current Volkswagen ID. series models are all sold directly under a unified national price . This price reduction is bound to cause consumers to complain. In addition, Volkswagen ID.3 also has many competitors in China, such as Oula Haomao, BYD Dolphin, Aion Y and so on.
So here comes the question:
What do you think of this pure electric car that is popular in Europe? If you want to buy a pure electric car, would you choose it?
Come and leave your answer, I'm very curious.
