Euler Lightning Cat's new color scheme will be unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show

According to Oula Motors official, Oula Lightning Cat will add a new color scheme "Smoke Amethyst", which will be officially unveiled at this year's Guangzhou Auto Show.

According to previous news, the Euler Lightning Cat will start pre-sale within this year and will be officially put into production in the second quarter of 2022.

Different from the previous models of Euler, the new car adopts a design similar to the GT model, but the shape is still rounded, with a length of 4800mm and a wheelbase of 2800mm.

In the interior, the Lightning Cat uses a triple instrument design, and the two LCD screens in the central control part show its technological sense.

Pa… Palameola?

The first pure electric model with a battery life of over 1000km will be released soon

GAC Aion recently revealed that its ultra-long battery life "black battery technology" technology announced at the beginning of this year has landed, and the first model AION LX Plus that uses this technology will be unveiled at this year's Guangzhou Auto Show.

This model adopts sponge silicon negative plate battery technology. The silicon negative plate inside the battery is soft and elastic, so that the expansion and contraction of silicon during charging and discharging are limited and buffered, and it will not break, and can store more energy to achieve Pure electric endurance of more than 1000km.

Previously, in the summer test, the AION LX had a range of 904 kilometers in actual comprehensive road conditions while keeping the air conditioner normally on.

Charge once every half month? It sounds really tempting.

HiPhi Z released by Gaohe, the title of "Light Factory" will be changed?

Last weekend, Gaohe Automobile released another flagship model after HiPhi X-Gaohe HiPhi Z.

Like the HiPhi X on sale, the design of the new car is still very futuristic. There are still programmable lights under the front and rear headlights. The LED light strips on the doors are also very creative, which will light up in different scenes. With different colors and shapes, for example, a red light will light up when the door is opened to act as a warning.

The new car is also radical in terms of interiors, with a very strong mecha style, and ambient lights everywhere you see it. Audi’s "light factory" title is probably going to be snatched away by Gaohe.

In terms of intelligence, Gaohe also has their ideas. HiPhi Z wants to give life to machines through digital technology.

Take the central control screen as an example. When the driver operates, the screen will turn to the driver for communication and control. When the co-pilot comes up, the screen may turn to the co-pilot to welcome it.

Ding Lei, founder and chairman of Gaohe Automobile, said, "At present, more than 95% of the mass production content of Gaohe HiPhi Z has been locked."

Good-looking players are here, Ford EVOS will be launched soon

At the Shanghai Auto Show in April, as the first global strategic model under the Ford China 2.0 strategy, EVOS naturally attracted much attention.

Recently, it has been reported that the car will be officially launched at the Guangzhou Auto Show. The new car is currently in the pre-sale stage, with a pre-sale price range of 227,800 to 260,800 yuan.

As a crossover coupe, the most attractive place is of course the side of the body. The roof line smoothly transitions to the rear of the car, ensuring the headroom of the rear passengers while ensuring the beauty.

Another impressive point is the interior. This 1.1-meter-long large screen traverses the instrument panel, and the overall design language is moving closer to electric models.

In terms of power, the new car is equipped with a Ford 2.0T Ecoboost four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 238 horsepower and a maximum torque of 376N·m. The performance is worth looking forward to.

From the price point of view, the top models are only 260,000. Changan Ford's sincerity is still very sufficient this time, and the overall configuration and power also have advantages.

Two new Lotus cars will be unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show

Lotus recently announced that its two models Lotus Emira and Evija will be unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show.

Lotus Emira is a new fuel-fueled sports car released by Lotus based on the Vision 80 strategy. At the same time, it is also Lotus's last model powered by pure fuel.

▲ Lotus Emira

For the power part, the overseas version has a 3.5L supercharged V6 engine, while the domestic version will introduce a version equipped with an AMG M139 2.0T turbocharged engine, with a maximum power of 360 horsepower and a maximum torque of 430N·m.

▲ Lotus Evija

Lotus Evija is Geely's first supercar after taking a stake in Lotus. The price is as high as 21.88 million yuan. It is limited to 130 vehicles in the first year and has been sold out.

The new car is equipped with 4 motors, with a combined power of up to 2000 horsepower and a peak torque of 1700N·m. This data report is already very ridiculous.

Of course, there are gains and losses. The new car is only equipped with a 70kWh battery pack. The WLTP cruising range is 400km, while the cruising range in the track mode is only 129km.

Emira, this car, it’s not necessarily a bad thing without a V6, but it’s not very kind without a manual transmission.

Due to chip shortages, BMW canceled the touch screen function of some new cars

According to CNET reports, due to the shortage of chips, BMW will cancel the touch screen function of the following models in order to maintain the current production level:

  • BMW 3/4 series (excluding BMW i4)
  • BMW X5/6/7
  • BMW Z4

BMW claims that industry-wide supply chain issues have affected global automotive manufacturing, resulting in limited availability of some functions or options.

Fortunately, iDrive's knobs are pretty easy to use.

Apple hires Tesla's former self-driving software development director

According to market news, Apple hired Christopher Moore, the former director of software development for Tesla's autonomous driving system. This indicates that Apple will develop self-driving software for its own electric cars.

He will become a member of Apple's Titan project team and report to Stuart Bowers, who is also a former Tesla employee.

During his tenure at Tesla, Christopher often denied CEO Elon Musk's claims about autonomous driving features. He said that it is impossible for Musk to claim that it will achieve a Level 5 autonomous driving system in just a few years. (Pinwan)

Apple has been hitting a wall recently, and the road to building a car is not easy. It is still too optimistic about its launch in 2024.

BMW announces that it will be equipped with L3 autonomous driving next year

A large number of traditional car manufacturers, led by BMW, are preparing for the FSD to overtake Tesla next year, and plan to directly pull the battlefield to the L3 level.

According to Forbes, BMW Group Development Director Frank Weber (Frank Weber) said that we can see L3 level autonomous driving in the 7 series to be released next year, which is a feature available for purchase.

In addition, he also said that the 5 series, X5, and X7 will also be equipped with this function, and the pure electric SUV iX just launched can also be upgraded.

BMW's current autonomous driving assistance system Pro does have a good performance. Although it is not the most radical technically, it also has sufficient technical reserves for higher-level autonomous driving.

The Shanghai factory continues to exert strength, and Tesla's monthly sales exceed 50,000

According to China's auto sales data recently released by the Passenger Association, Tesla's wholesale sales in October exceeded 50,000 vehicles, reaching 54,391 vehicles.

At the same time, the Shanghai Super Factory continued its efforts, and its export volume exceeded 40,000 for the first time in October. Since 2021, Tesla has exported close to 150,000 vehicles in China, creating a new high for China's new energy vehicle exports.

Morgan Stanley chief analyst Adam Jonas pointed out that Tesla may be the world's most vertically integrated OEM, so it can understand the supply chain earlier and use multiple suppliers to ensure supply.

In the context of global supply chain problems, Tesla does have its confidence. Tesla once confidently wrote in the second quarter earnings report: Although the semiconductor supply shortage continues, we can further increase production.

SAIC-GM-Wuling Hydrogen Energy Vehicle officially unveiled

According to Wuling Motors official news, SAIC-GM-Wuling's new generation of hydrogen-fueled electric trial vehicles officially unveiled today.

According to reports, SAIC-GM-Wuling started the development of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2019, and completed the construction of the first hydrogen fuel cell functional prototype vehicle in 2020.

Wuling said that the maximum power of the new-generation trial vehicle power system can reach 140kW and the maximum speed can reach 165km/h.

It is worth mentioning that the new generation of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles has realized all the autonomy from membrane electrodes, bipolar plates to the integration of the stack system on the hydrogen fuel cell stacks.

Wuling said that even the high-pressure hydrogen storage tank above is also domestically produced, successfully realizing the localization of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles from key components to vehicle integration.

Verstappen Mexico won the championship and successfully widened the points gap

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen scored an overwhelming victory at yesterday's Mexico Grand Prix, extending his lead in the drivers' standings to 19 points.

However, although the situation looks more optimistic, Verstappen clearly knows that everything is far from over. He understands that as long as he experiences a bad game, he can make his rival Hamilton comeback.

Hamilton, who started at pole, expressed his dissatisfaction with Bottas in the post-match interview.

He believes that Bottas did not try his best to defend before the first corner, leaving a place for Verstappen, which allowed Verstappen to surpass them to take the lead in one fell swoop.

Last night's other protagonist was Perez, the fetus master, who became the first Mexican driver in F1 history to take the stage at home.

What does the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class look like when it is driven?

In the mid-size luxury car market where the bayonet is popular, competition between BBAs has long been the norm. How to balance luxury and sports, and occasionally add novelty brought about by the new generation, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a difficult task.

In appearance, unlike the previous generation model, which is a bit too well-behaved and round, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a kind of compatibility and transparency in the exterior design.

In the car, the new C-Class completely embraces the "geek" style in its overall style. The previous traditional instruments have been replaced by digital instrument panels, and even the control buttons on the steering wheel have become a sensor-triggered style.

As the first full range of Mercedes-Benz models equipped with hybrids, the two models currently on sale of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class are equipped with a 1.5T turbocharged four-cylinder engine code-named M254, which is matched with a 48V system.

From the book data, 204 horsepower and 300 Nm are not inferior to competitors.

However, I don’t know if it’s due to the calibration, the mid-stage acceleration of this powertrain is still not satisfactory; in addition, the steering feel seems to be accompanied by a gentle throttle performance, and there is also a slight lag.

Of course, this is a Mercedes-Benz after all, and perhaps "comfort" is its most important task. (interface)

Today's topic: What do you think is the most useless function on the car?

In addition to the appearance, chassis, and power, the interior configuration is also a place where various manufacturers struggle to "die or die."

In order to distinguish between high and low, manufacturers continue to introduce functions such as automatic start and stop, built-in hard disk, track reversing, and Internet TV, which have "created" a lot of needs for car owners, but do we really need these?

If you could replace a feature that you think is useless with a real discount, what feature would you replace?

The author is a bit busy and writes the introduction later.
