The 72-degree Model Y will be available early next year

LatePost news, CATL will supply Tesla with M3P batteries in the fourth quarter of this year, which will be installed in Model Y models using 72-degree battery packs. This version of Model Y will be available early next year.

It is reported that the lithium manganese iron phosphate material used in the Ningde era M3P battery will be supplied by German Nano, which plans to put into production 110,000 tons of lithium iron manganese phosphate material in the second half of this year.

Tesla CEO Musk said in March this year that he is optimistic about the technical solution of applying manganese in batteries, and Tesla has been trying to use manganese in batteries.

The power battery industry believes that lithium manganese iron phosphate batteries will gradually replace ordinary lithium iron phosphate batteries and become the mainstream solution for phosphate batteries.

The energy density of the M3P battery is about 15% higher than that of the lithium iron phosphate battery, and the cruising range of the new Model Y is worth looking forward to. Plus, the Model 3 isn't far off.

BMW's cheapest electric coupe announced, with a starting price of less than 350,000 yuan

BMW announced the i4 eDrive35 model with a starting price of $51,400 (about RMB 347,000), which is currently BMW's cheapest pure electric coupe. The car uses a rear axle motor and has a 490kw WLTP endurance performance.

The new car is equipped with a 12.3-inch full LCD instrument panel and a 14.9-inch integrated curved central control screen. It is equipped with the iDrive 8.0 system and supports a charging power of up to 180kW.

The assisted driving is BMW Personal CoPilot and supports BMW Voice Assistant 2.0, which is slightly more intelligent than other traditional car companies.

Ideal response to car fire

Recently, an ideal one caught fire on the Sichuan Leya Expressway.

The picture shows that only the skeleton remained after the car was overheated, the position of the range extender at the front of the vehicle was severely damaged, and the tailgate of the vehicle had fallen off the body after the overheating.

In this regard, the ideal side responded that a special investigation team has been established:

(Currently) an investigation is underway to determine whether the cause of the fire is due to the shortcomings of the owner or the vehicle model. The results will be announced after the investigation is clear.

At the same time, the ideal aspect also emphasizes that the car meets the national quality inspection standards before delivery. (China-Singapore latitude and longitude)

Waiting for the results of the investigation, but it should take a long time.

GM refunds $6,000 to old Bolt owners to avoid lawsuit

Remember the Chevrolet Bolt that was recalled across the board due to defective battery cells? Although the current Bolt is very safe, the frequent spontaneous combustion accidents in the past are bound to have a serious impact on the vehicles of this model.

In an effort to reverse the slump in sales, GM announced in June that it would cut the price of the Bolt by $6,000, an 18 percent discount.

However, the price of the new model has been reduced, and those car owners who have accepted the recall are naturally not happy.

According to Electrek, GM recently decided to offer these older owners a $6,000 refund, but there is an interesting clause in the refund agreement:

Permanently waive and dismiss all claims or lawsuits regarding Bolt car battery defects or battery recalls.

GM: Stop messing with me, I'll give you the money.

BYD to sell new energy vehicles in Israel

BYD recently announced that it will cooperate with Israel's Shlomo Automobile Company to sell new energy vehicles locally. The first models are scheduled to arrive in the Israeli port of Eilat in the third quarter of this year.

BYD said it will designate Shlomo Auto as a national distributor to be responsible for local sales and after-sales service of electric vehicles. Shlomo Auto will open four new showrooms in Israel from September this year for customers to experience BYD's latest models.

Southeast Asia, Japan, Germany, Sweden, Israel, BYD has recently made many overseas moves.

Great Wall Motors announced to enter the new energy vehicle market in Hong Kong and Macau

On August 2, Great Wall Motor announced that it has officially become a partner with auto retailer Inchcape Group to jointly develop the new energy vehicle market in Hong Kong and Macau.

Great Wall Motor said that new energy vehicles are currently ushering in a golden period of development in the Hong Kong and Macau markets, and Great Wall Motor's new energy vehicle brand Euler's right-hand drive vehicle products will be the first to enter the local market.

The ORA brand's right-hand drive vehicles are currently deployed in the Thai market, and will be launched in the UK, Australia, South Africa, Malaysia and other markets in the future, gradually achieving full coverage of the global right-hand drive vehicle market. (IT House)

Nezha Auto and BlackBerry officially reach a strategic cooperation

Recently, Nezha Auto and BlackBerry officially established a partnership. The two parties will accelerate the application of intelligent technology in car driving and car cockpit scenarios.

According to the cooperation content, Nezha S will be equipped with BlackBerry QNX system.

Among them, Nezha S cockpit uses QNX® Neutrino® RTOS and QNX® Hypervisor, which can support and expand various applications of interactive cockpit.

Nezha S NETA PILOT 3.0 intelligent driving system will also be equipped with QNX® OS for Safety to ensure the functional safety, network security and reliability of Nezha S.

With QNX, security and reliability are big advantages, but Nezha must put more resources on application adaptation.

Xiaopeng's self-driving taxi business may be launched within this year

Xpeng Motors has recently registered several trademarks such as "Xpeng Zhixing", "XPENG ROBOTAXI" and "Xpeng Zhihang". It is not difficult to see that this is likely to be related to the self-driving taxi business mentioned earlier by He Xiaopeng.

It is understood that the international classification of these trademarks involves the fields of means of transportation, transportation and storage, and design research. He Xiaopeng previously revealed that Xiaopeng will start the trial operation of Robotaxi in Guangzhou within the year.

On the other hand, Xpeng Motors also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with eHi Travel last month. Ehi Travel will purchase and operate Xpeng Motors models in batches. (new trip)

Guangzhou Science City is about to welcome new players, try it in the second half of the year, and compare it with Carrot Run.

The country launches a pilot program for the application of high-precision maps for intelligent networked vehicles

A few days ago, the General Office of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the People's Republic of China issued the "Notice on Doing a Good Job in the Pilot Application of High-precision Maps for Intelligent Connected Vehicles", and launched high-precision intelligent networked vehicles in 6 cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou and Chongqing. Pilot map application.

The detailed rules point out that the natural resources authorities of the selected cities should formulate a pilot implementation plan in accordance with the deployment requirements of the State Council and relevant laws, regulations and policies on national surveying and mapping geographic information management and data security, and propose a timetable and roadmap, which are reasonable according to different application scenarios of autonomous driving map data. Delineate the scope of different types of pilot applications.

It also clearly pointed out that the state will encourage enterprises to carry out pilot and demonstration applications such as advanced assisted driving maps for urban ordinary roads and high-precision location navigation applications. (new trip)

High-precision maps, there is nothing to do with Tesla.

Vehicles equipped with Level 2 assisted driving are not allowed to approach the observatory

"Vehicles equipped with millimeter-wave radar and L2-level assisted driving should not approach the observatory." I believe that many car owners do not know such a cold knowledge. In fact, the specific rules have been clarified in the "Interim Regulations on Automotive Radar Radio Management" issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

It is reported that my country plans to use the 76-79GHz frequency band for automotive millimeter-wave radar. The main use scenarios include adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, lane change assistance, etc., which has the advantage of stably detecting targets in bad weather conditions such as rain and snow, but it will be difficult to detect targets. Observations by the observatory's radio telescope caused interference.

In order to protect the radio astronomy services working in the same frequency band, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stipulates that vehicles carrying automotive radars shall not drive within the interference protection distance of relevant radio astronomy observatories in my country.

All platforms: prohibit online car-hailing from charging air-conditioning surcharges

On August 2, according to a report by CCTV Financial Channel, some consumers were recently refused to turn on the air conditioner by the driver on the grounds that the cost was "too high" when taking a taxi online.

In this regard, the online car-hailing platform clearly stated that drivers should cooperate with passengers to switch on and off the air conditioner, and it is forbidden to charge passengers more surcharges or refuse to carry passengers in various names such as "air conditioning fee". There will be certain penalties on the list.

The lawyer said that air conditioning, as the basic configuration of a motor vehicle, is an integral part of the motor vehicle. Passengers, as consumers, pay for the services of passenger transportation and can enjoy all the functions and services of the vehicle. The operator requires passengers to pay for air-conditioning separately, which obviously has no contractual basis and legal basis.

In this case, in addition to refusing to pay unreasonable fees, we can also complain to the platform for operating the driver, and the platform will deal with it in accordance with service commitments and internal systems.

In addition, we can also complain and report the operating platform to the road transport authority and the market supervision and management authority.

I wish everyone a safe and comfortable ride-hailing experience~

The author is a bit busy, so I will write the introduction later.
