AUTOCAR recently exposed a set of spy photos of Rolls-Royce pure electric models.
Rolls-Royce announced that its first pure electric model Spectre has already begun road tests, and the prototype will travel 150 million miles under various conditions.
The car is positioned as a large-scale GT, with a line similar to that of the Rolls-Royce Phantom, and will be launched in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Rolls-Royce said that the 150 million miles of road testing is equivalent to a 400-year lifetime simulation.
The production line of Evergrande has been completed, and the first model is expected to roll off the assembly line at the beginning of the year
Kuai Technology News, Hengchi Auto’s first new car, Hengchi 5 LX, has officially rolled off the assembly line recently, but the media was not invited to report on the spot, which is not in line with Evergrande’s previous publicity methods and is a bit too low-key.
Judging from the picture, the off-line model is posted with the number plate of the "commissioning vehicle", and the upper screen displays "Celebrate the completion of the final assembly line."
In this regard, Hengchi Automobile said: "Hengchi 5 LX will be rolled off the assembly line early next year. At present, there is just a small ceremony for the internal production line to pass through, and it is not deliberately promoted."
This Hengchi 5 LX appeared in the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology last month, but it was no longer in the product license announcement this month.
According to InsideEVs, the US Environmental Protection Agency has announced the endurance rating of the BMW i4. There are two models involved in the test, namely the i4 eDrive 40 and the i4 M50.
Let’s talk about the single-motor i4 eDrive 40: the maximum power is 250kW, the peak torque is 430N·m, and the acceleration is 5.7s. From the test results, the EPA with 18-inch and 19-inch wheels has a cruising range of 484km and 454km, respectively, and the performance is relatively satisfactory.
The i4 M50 with a maximum power of 400kW has worse results: models with 19-inch and 20-inch wheels have EPA cruising ranges of 434km and 365km, respectively.
BMW should replace the i4 M50 with a larger battery, but in fact the battery capacity of both versions is 83.9kWh.
BYD Song MAX DM-i interior official image released
BYD recently announced a set of official interiors of the 2022 Song MAX DM-i. The new interiors are significantly improved compared to current models and are expected to go on sale in the first quarter of 2022.
The new car provides a 6/7 seat layout, adopts a central control panel and door panel with wave elements, and is equipped with a full LCD instrument panel and a rotatable central control large screen. This design is already standard for the current Dynasty models .
Of course, after all, there is a "MAX" in the name, and the internal space is its focus. The addition of the "upgrade roof" will allow passengers in the car to have more headroom. At the same time, the third-row seats of the new car support full-flat reclining, and the space performance is excellent.
Unfortunately, the new car does not use the front face of Song PLUS and Song PRO.
McLaren Artura delayed delivery due to chip shortage
McLaren confirmed on Tuesday local time that the delivery of the new supercar Artura will be delayed. The car was originally scheduled to be delivered before the end of this year, but now it has to wait until July 2022.
"All suppliers are struggling with continued semiconductor shortages," said a McLaren spokesperson.
As a "only sale" 2.38 million plug-in hybrid supercar, Artura is an epoch-making product for McLaren, but the bosses have to wait for a while.
Ford Motor's stock price closed at $20.77 on Tuesday, with a market value of $83 billion, slightly higher than GM's $82.9 billion. This is the first time that Ford's market value has surpassed GM in more than five years.
The last time Ford's market value surpassed GM was on September 14, 2016, when Ford closed with a market value of $48.2 billion.
Last October, Jim Farley became Ford CEO, accelerating the company's entry into electric vehicles. Since the beginning of this year, its stock price has more than doubled.
Sales of the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck that went on the market at the beginning of the year are booming, and Ford should worry about delivering it now.
The first batch of exclusive insurance for new energy vehicles is online, and the premium has risen?
In the middle of this month, the Insurance Industry Association of China officially released the "New Energy Vehicle Commercial Insurance Exclusive Clauses (Trial)", and the three-electric system of new energy vehicles is also included in the scope of coverage, covering the use scenarios of new energy vehicles in driving, parking, charging and operation .
On December 27, the Shanghai Insurance Exchange officially launched the new energy auto insurance trading platform, and listed the first batch of new energy auto insurance products for 12 property insurance companies including PICC P&C, Ping An P&C and CPIC P&C.
However, according to Times Weekly, after the launch of new energy special insurance, the premiums of most new energy vehicles have been raised.
A Model Y owner measured the total premiums of commercial insurance, compulsory traffic insurance, and driving accident insurance in PICC P&C’s quotation system on December 23 at 8278 yuan/year. After the new energy auto insurance went online, this figure rose to 14,902 yuan per year.
Some insiders in the property and casualty insurance industry said that there are two main reasons for the increase in premiums. One is that maintenance is expensive, and the other is that the insurance rate is relatively high, and the industry is facing relatively high pressure on underwriting losses.

According to Autosport, after testing the simulator, Alfa Romeo driver Bottas does not believe that there will be a completely different driving experience between the car born under the new regulations in 2022 and the current car. The main difference between the two may lie in the overall The downforce has been reduced.
Previously, McLaren driver Norris said that the new car will drive like F2.

As we all know, building a car is a money-burning thing.
In 2016, Li Bin, the founder of Weilai Automobile, once said that no car should be built without 20 billion yuan (yuan). Nowadays, competition in the industry is getting fiercer and fiercer. For latecomers, is 20 billion enough?
Recently Li Bin answered this question again:
The capital threshold required to build a car was 20 billion yuan a few years ago, but now it may not be possible without 40 billion yuan.
He explained that 40 billion refers to the capital reserves needed to truly become a competitive, sustainable, and risk-resistant enterprise.
"At this point in time today, I think the threshold for investment in research and development, service systems, and infrastructure has actually become higher." Li Bin said that he was not "frightening" entrepreneurs. The reason why Weilai is losing money is also Investing in the future.
If I don’t invest, I can make a profit quickly, but what's the point? It is very likely that it will fall off a cliff in two years.
Today's topic: electric car in the hospital
Honda recently announced a small electric car called Shogo.
Don't get me wrong, this is not an electric car, but a small toy specially designed for hospitalized children. Medical staff can place medical equipment behind it according to their needs. The engineer hopes to use Shogo to reduce the anxiety of children and parents during their stay in the hospital.
Shogo is a Japanese word meaning "to the future". It is specially designed for children aged 4-6. The start and stop and speed of the vehicle are controlled by the caregiver. Currently, Shogo is being used at the Orange County Children's Health Center in the United States.
Should the Honda Spirit start from the doll? If I were a kid, I would definitely pretend to be sick, so that my mother would take me to the hospital to sit down, and then call on it:
VTEC is the best!
