Mercedes releases EQXX with drag coefficient as low as 0.17
At the beginning of the new year, Mercedes-Benz brought us a brand new concept car – VISION EQXX.
The EQXX has a very beautiful body line, and the rearward extending tail is a major feature of it. It can be seen that Mercedes-Benz is on the air resistance bar this time. Mercedes-Benz claims that the EQXX achieves a drag coefficient as low as 0.17.
On the other hand, with the help of lightweight magnesium alloy wheels, doors made of mixed materials, and a battery that is 30% lighter than the EQS, the EQXX weighs only 1,750 kg, which is comparable to a compact SUV. .
To its credit, although the weight of this battery is reduced and its volume is only 50% of the EQS battery, its capacity still reaches 100 kWh.
On the other hand, with Mercedes-AMG's accumulation in F1 and FE events, they achieved a transmission efficiency of 95% on this EQXX.
Mercedes claims that the EQXX can achieve a practical range of 1,000 km by going all out in terms of transmission efficiency, energy density, aerodynamics and lightweight design.
Of course, in order to extend the cruising range as much as possible, the motor output power of the EQXX is also limited to 150 kW, so far.
Confirmed by BMW, the more powerful iX M60 will be unveiled at the 2022 CES show, with a maximum power of more than 610 horsepower and a peak torque of 1100 N·m.
BMW iX M60 adds a series of sports kits on the basis of iX, such as front and rear surrounds, side skirts, diffusers, etc., and adds a more sporty cement gray car paint.
The iX M60 is equipped with a four-wheel drive system consisting of front and rear dual motors. The acceleration time to 100 km/h is 3.8 seconds, and the WLTP cruising range is 575 km. (IT House)
M-Power in the tram, are you looking forward to it?
During the New Year's Day holiday, BYD also gave a big gift. Yuan PLUS EV, the first SUV of BYD's e-platform 3.0, officially opened for pre-sale.
The new car has two cruising ranges of 430 km and 510 km, a total of four models, and the pre-sale price range is 132,800-152,800 yuan.
In terms of appearance, Yuan PLUS EV adopts BYD's new Dragon Face3.0 design, which integrates the headlights and the grille well, and the tail shape is not bloated.
In terms of interior, the new car adopts a new interior design language, with a unique and bold style, and the overall look is more innovative and youthful. (new trip)
The fly in the ointment is that Yuan PLUS EV's car machine has not improved too much, and there is a certain gap between the experience and UI design and the new power car companies.
Recently, the 2022 BMW X1 was officially launched. The appearance of the new car has not changed much. Silver trims have been added to the front and rear surrounds and side skirts, making the X1 slightly more refined.
In addition, silver mirrors and 18-inch Y-shaped alloy wheels accentuate the X1's sporty style.
On the interior, the new X1 still uses a 10.25-inch central control screen, and functions such as wireless CarPlay, Baidu CarLife, and voice recognition are not absent.
The new car is still equipped with 1.5T three-cylinder and 2.0T four-cylinder engines, the maximum power of which is 138 horsepower and 189 horsepower respectively. (Quick Technology)
Of course, it doesn't mean that the 1.5T version can't be bought, maybe you can copy the bottom line.

Free return or exchange within 7 days? Car "Three Guarantees" Begin to Implement
Although production capacity problems still exist and cars are getting more and more expensive, there is actually good news in 2022.
From January 1, 2022, the "Regulations on Responsibilities for Repair, Replacement and Return of Home Auto Products" (hereinafter referred to as the "Regulations") will come into effect.
It is understood that in response to the return and exchange disputes caused by serious quality problems just after the new car leaves the store, the "Regulations" have added the provisions of free replacement or return due to quality problems within 7 days.
In addition, it is clear that due to quality problems, the cumulative repair time exceeds 30 days, and the cumulative repair times exceed 4 times, and the car can be returned.
For new energy vehicles, domestic vehicles can be returned and replaced free of charge if the power battery catches fire due to quality problems within 60 days from the date of delivery or within 3,000 kilometers.
During the validity period of the Three Guarantees, the power battery and driving motor have been replaced 2 times in total due to quality problems.

Nmoto builds retro body kit for BMW C400X

The kit comes with a carbon fiber fairing kit, powder-coated front and rear subframes, exhaust pipe repositioning kit, double kidney grille, side moldings, rear lower grille, headlights, headlight covers, turn signals, turn signal covers, New badges and a set of mirrors.
With this kit, the BMW C400X looks retro, but its function is very modern. It comes with ABS, stability control, Bluetooth, keyless ignition, heated grips and more. It is reported that the C400X is priced at $6,795, and the “Golden Age” kit will cost an additional $12,490.
This intake is really a bit like BMW 502.
A few days ago, a car owner found a new Tesla super charging station in the "Dahuai Service Area" in the direction of Zhanjiang on the Shenhai Expressway.
The Dahuai service area is located in Enping, Jiangmen. It is the preferred service area for a rest stop between Guangzhou and Zhanjiang. Tesla has set up a supercharger in this service area, which is convenient for Tesla owners who travel between the two places.
The new site uses Tesla V3 charging piles, the current can reach 250A, and the charging speed of some models can exceed 1600 km/h.

This is the first service area supercharging station established by Tesla in Guangdong Province, and I believe we will see more of them soon.
Ma Zeping is ready for "midstream competition"
Nikita Mazepin said he was 100% ready to take part in the battle of the midstream group. The premise is that the Haas team can give him a significantly improved car.
Although Ma Zeping made some mistakes in his 2021 rookie season, he feels he has learned a lot during that time.
For me, mainly on the grappling side, I need to know exactly where the rear and front wings are bounded, so I can control the body distance accurately.
A more balanced and predictable car would be "more enjoyable", he said.
Dong Chejun only hopes that Ma Zeping will not hit Zhou Guanyu this year (manual dog head).
In 2021, the sales of new energy vehicles will increase exponentially, but the production capacity has not been able to keep up. Such an environment "breds" an alternative way of making money: selling orders at high prices.
In fact, after users place an order for most models, their subscription agreement mentions that "orders are not transferable", but "scalpers" are still everywhere. If the pickup date is earlier, orders for some popular models can even sell for tens of thousands of yuan.
I personally think that the emergence of "scalpers" is not directly related to the sales model of car companies, but is mainly related to the tightness of the products. This kind of speculative behavior has also appeared in traditional car companies, such as tanks.
Lang Xuehong, deputy secretary-general of the China Automobile Dealers Association, said that the industry does not yet have a good solution, and can only remind OEMs as much as possible to make vehicle conditions more transparent.
When it comes to countermeasures, Cui Dongshu, Secretary-General of the Passenger Federation, believes that increasing the price of orders is one of the ways to effectively curb the spread of the scalper phenomenon:
Tesla's deposit only needs 1,000 yuan, and even if the order cannot be transferred, the loss borne by the scalpers is also small. If the amount is large, scalpers may consider the risk to reduce hoarding, and the orders circulating on the market will be reduced accordingly.
Today's topic: Will you choose to "add money"?
Affected by the epidemic and the shortage of chips, "raising the price of the car" has become the norm, not only in our country, but also abroad.
Recently, Twitter user @Jon Rettinger wanted to buy Mercedes-Benz's new car EQS, but the dealer said it would add $50,000. However, the price of the car was only $102,300-125,300, which means that the markup is close to the price of the car. half.
Even if it's not a luxury car, Ford's electric pickup, the F-150 Lightning, will cost about $30,000, which is also close to half the price of the car.
In contrast, the aforementioned high-priced transfer orders do not seem so exaggerated.
The end of the year is approaching. If it were you, would you be willing to use the method of "adding money" to pick up the car in advance?
