Domestic Tesla Model 3 is about to be replaced with a new battery

According to Sina Technology, sources revealed that Tesla will launch the new Model 3. The biggest change is to replace the entire system with the Ningde era M3P battery, which is expected to increase the battery life by at least 10%.

On the other hand, LatePost reported earlier that the domestic Model Y will be replaced with the M3P battery that CATL supplied to the Shanghai factory in the fourth quarter and will be launched early next year.

The cost of Ningde era M3P battery is similar to that of lithium iron phosphate battery, but the energy density of M3P is increased by about 15%.

The point is, will the price of this thing increase in the future?

BMW M division to revamp i4 to create quad-motor performance monster

BMW's M division has announced that it has begun testing new powertrain and chassis control systems, including a four-motor powertrain, in the rebuilt model based on the i4 M50, reports motor1.

Lamborghini Revuelto renderings exposed, positioning electric crossover

In an interview with Autocar at the beginning of the year, Lamborghini CEO announced that Lamborghini's first electric car will be launched in 2028 with a 2+2 seat configuration. British media speculate that this is a smaller crossover than the Urus, and recently motor1 released a rendering of this car.

Lamborghini has applied for the trademark "Revuelto" for the brand-new model, which is seen as Lamborghini's first electric model, while future Urus, Huracan and Aventador facelifts will only be hybrids.

This time, Dong Chejun thinks that it is not as good-looking as the Urus, and the rear space should be relatively small, but Lamborghini owners may not care about this, right?
