Volvo plans to invest 10 billion in electric car production

Volvo recently announced that it will invest 10 billion Swedish kronor (about 6.96 billion yuan) in its Torslanda manufacturing plant in Sweden to prepare for the production of the next generation of pure electric models.

As part of the planned investment, the Torslanda manufacturing facility will introduce a range of new, more sustainable technologies and manufacturing processes. These include an aluminium one-piece casting process, a new battery assembly plant and a fully refurbished paint and final assembly shop.

Earlier, Volvo and battery cell company Northvolt jointly announced that they would invest 30 billion Swedish kronor (about 20.88 billion yuan) to develop and manufacture high-quality batteries that will be tailored for the next generation of pure electric Volvo models.

This factory also has a long history. It was opened in April 1964 by King Gustav VI Adolf of Sweden.

After 13 years, Hyundai Motor re-enters the Japanese market

▲Ioniq 5

According to Bloomberg, Hyundai Motor announced on the 8th that it will start selling the Ioniq 5 electric car and the fuel cell Nexo in Japan this year.

Shigeaki Kato, general manager of Hyundai Motor Japan, said it plans to start accepting online orders in May.

Previously, Hyundai Motor entered the Japanese market in 2001, but due to unsatisfactory performance, it stopped most of its business in Japan in 2009, and only retained the commercial vehicle business such as buses. Therefore, this will be the first time Hyundai Motor has entered the Japanese passenger car market after a lapse of 13 years.


There are still relatively few pure electric models that the Japanese people can choose from, and it is a good thing to arrange them earlier.

Audi won't develop next-gen A1 and Q2

A few days ago, Audi CEO Markus Duesmann (Markus Duesmann) said that the Audi A1 and Audi Q2 will not have next-generation models.

While these two models are still available for purchase, and there is no definite end date, Audi will focus more on high-end luxury models in the future.

As part of the Volkswagen Group, Audi's move to cut off entry-level small cars is not just to improve product profits, but more importantly, to improve its brand image. (Fast Technology)

150,000 to buy a "luxury car" will become history.

'Leg cramps' nearly cost Verstappen the world championship

In an interview published by the Guardian on Tuesday, Verstappen revealed that he suffered a leg cramp in the final moments of the game, which was very painful.

"If you look at the telemetry data, you'll see that my throttle data was very non-linear at the time. My legs were like that (cramps) on the last lap," Verstappen said. "If there were more races, One lap and I might not finish the race.”

Despite the controversy surrounding the final lap of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Verstappen doesn't think it has tarnished his title. "People always remember the last game, but if you look back at the entire 2021 season, the world champion should have been decided long ago."

On the last lap, I was nervous too. (manual dog head)

Passenger Federation: It is recommended to allow replacement of new energy vehicles to retain the original license plate

At present, consumers need to replace new energy license plates when purchasing new energy vehicles, but some consumers are concerned about the scarcity of fuel vehicle license plates and their preference for the original license plates. In this regard, Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the Passenger Federation, said: "The policy of requiring that the purchase of new energy vehicles must be changed should be relaxed."

Retaining the qualification for a fuel vehicle is the psychological guarantee for everyone to change to an electric vehicle after taking a fuel license.

This move may help more fuel vehicle users to take the initiative to try and experience new energy vehicles. Even if you don't like it after the experience, you can change it back to the license plate of the fuel car.

Cui Dongshu said that how fuel vehicles can accelerate the replacement of new energy vehicles, promote the development of green transportation, and take care of consumer demands is also an important policy consideration. (interface)

Today's topic: What should I do if the supercharged cable is stolen?

For Tesla, the safety of overcharged piles is also worth considering now. Charging cables are frequently stolen, causing a lot of trouble for both car owners and Tesla.

In order to prevent such incidents from happening again, Tesla also released a "trick" and built a solar-powered version of "security device" next to the charging pile.

The "security device" is equipped with surveillance cameras, as well as horns and sirens for shouting. If someone is found to have stolen the cable, Tesla will warn the thief.

Good guy, what if the security device is smashed, it is recommended to add another security device to the security device.

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