GM and Ford are applying to deploy cars without steering wheels and pedals
GM and Ford, the two largest U.S. automakers, have applied to U.S. auto safety regulators for waivers to deploy a limited number of self-driving cars without steering wheels and brake pedals.
Both automakers hope to deploy 2,500 vehicles a year for vehicle sharing and delivery services. None of them currently have plans to sell self-driving cars to consumers.
"This application is an important step in helping to create a regulatory pathway through which self-driving technology can mature," a Ford spokesman said.
Toyota said in a statement on Tuesday it would work with Suzuki and Daihatsu to develop a small electric commercial van.
The project will begin in January 2023 and the vehicles will be used to transport goods between Tokyo and Fukushima prefectures, with a planned production of 580 vehicles.
K-Car is a segment primarily aimed at Japan, where the production share of mini-commercial vehicles is about 60% of the overall Japanese commercial fleet, covering many areas with narrow streets.
Separately, Toyota will work with truck makers Isuzu and Hino to jointly develop light-duty fuel cell trucks. The Commercial Electric Vehicle Coalition, led by Toyota, also includes local governments, logistics and energy companies. (new trip)

How much "manganese" is lithium iron manganese phosphate?
A few days ago, there was news that CATL plans to mass-produce lithium iron manganese phosphate batteries in the second half of this year. The related products of Xinwangda and Yiwei Lithium have also passed the battery pilot test in the first half of this year and are sending samples to Car test.
Prior to this, Musk had also publicly expressed interest in "manganese batteries" in a question-and-answer session after the launch ceremony of Tesla's Berlin plant: "I think manganese has an interesting potential."
The lithium manganese iron phosphate battery that detonated the hot spot this time can be regarded as the next-generation evolution product of lithium iron phosphate battery.
Compared with ternary lithium batteries, the market share of lithium iron phosphate batteries continues to expand, but its theoretical energy density is constantly approaching the limit. In this case, whoever takes the lead in mastering the next generation of lithium iron phosphate batteries will also dominate the development direction of the power battery industry.
How much "manganese" is lithium iron manganese phosphate?
First of all, the energy density of lithium iron manganese phosphate batteries has become higher.
The extreme value of the energy density of the lithium iron manganese phosphate battery can reach 230wh/kg, which is not only much higher than the energy density of the lithium iron phosphate battery of 170wh/kg, but also comparable to the energy density of the ternary lithium battery. wrist"
Secondly, lithium iron manganese phosphate batteries have better low temperature performance.
The capacity retention rate of lithium iron manganese phosphate battery can be about 75% in the low temperature environment of -20 ℃, while the capacity retention rate of lithium iron phosphate is 60%-70%.
In addition, lithium iron manganese phosphate batteries inherit the safety and cost advantages of lithium iron phosphate batteries.
