Tesla may deliver 15 Semi electric trucks this month

According to Teslarati, Tesla will deliver the first 15 Semi electric trucks to PepsiCo as early as the end of this month.

It is reported that Tesla has begun to install multiple Megachargers charging piles in PepsiCo’s California factory. The output power of these charging piles can reach 1.5 megawatts, which can quickly replenish the Semi’s huge battery pack. (new trip)

Last year, Tesla said that the delivery of the Semi would be delayed until 2022, and it did not expect the first deliveries to come so quickly.

Tesla's self-driving software FSD will raise prices

Over the weekend, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the U.S. price of Tesla's "Full Self-Driving FSD" software would increase to $12,000, and said the price of FSD would continue to rise.

However, in the past year, the domestic price of this function has been maintained at 64,000 yuan, and there is no news of a price increase.

Currently, Tesla's FSD Beta is only available in the United States, and you can use it if you purchase or subscribe to the FSD and get a high score in Tesla's "Safety Score" test.

Due to some well-known reasons, there is a high probability that FSD will not land in China in the past two years. Friends who want to place an order can ignore it.

Pure electric drive, Jeep Magneto debuts at CES

At this year's CES, Jeep brought the Magnrto concept car real car. The car is based on the Wrangler Rubicon two-door version, but there are no small changes in the details.

Inside the air intake grille of the new car, there is a horizontal light group exclusive to pure electric models. The turn signals on the left and right wheel eyebrows can also act as daytime running lights in normal times. In addition, blue is also used in many parts of the body. to embellish.

In the interior, this pure electric new car is no different from the model on sale. Interestingly, the Magneto is still equipped with a manual gear lever and clutch pedal.

In this regard, Jeep's design director Mark Allen said that this allows the Magneto to have both the characteristics of an automatic transmission and the driving pleasure of a manual transmission, which is attractive to off-road enthusiasts. (new trip)

It is recommended that those models that advertise performance can put the shift lever back in.

The ugliest public ever? The new Lingdu will be released soon

SAIC-Volkswagen recently announced that the new generation of Lingdu will be officially released on the 17th of this month.

It is reported that the new car will be built on the Volkswagen MQB Evo platform, with a body size of 4784*1831*1469mm and a wheelbase of 2731mm.

In fact, this brand new Lingdu has been unveiled on the official website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology before. Due to its unique shape, it has been called "the ugliest public" by many netizens.

The same as the aggressive appearance, Lingdu has also undergone major changes in the interior. For the first time, an integrated dual screen has been used, and a new multi-function steering wheel has been replaced at the same time.

In terms of power, from the reporting information, the new Lingdu is equipped with a 1.4T engine with a maximum power of 110kW and a peak torque of 250N m.

Dong Chejun voted for Lao Lingdu.

Mercedes-Benz unveils new car plan for 2022

Mercedes-Benz recently mentioned in its 2022 new product plan that it will launch 21 new products in the Chinese market this year, including 8 pure electric and plug-in hybrid models.

In addition, Mercedes-AMG will celebrate its 55th anniversary, and the AMG SL 63 and other models will also be launched one after another. The arrival of the first Mercedes-AMG electric model, the AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+, will also accelerate Mercedes-Benz's development. Electric pace.

Electrification and digitalization are the two key words of Mercedes-Benz this year.

Over 100,000 Nezha mass-produced vehicles rolled off the production line

Recently, Nezha Auto announced that over 100,000 mass-produced cars had been rolled off the production line, 42 months after the first one rolled off the production line.

In 2021, Nezha Auto will launch two products, Nezha U Pro and Nezha V Pro. Among them, the monthly order of Nezha U Pro exceeded 5,000 units, and the monthly order of Nezha V Pro exceeded 10,000 units. Nezha will deliver nearly 70,000 vehicles in 2021.

Nezha will focus on Nezha S this year, which is expected to be delivered by the end of the year.

Down jackets may become a must-have for new energy car owners in the north

Only Mr. Liu, who has a green card in Beijing, said that his car has a battery life of 312 kilometers. In winter, he can't even run 100 kilometers on a single charge.

Short battery life and fast power loss have become the norm for electric vehicle owners in the north. The main reason for this is that lithium electrons are too delicate: at low temperatures, the electrolyte in the battery will become viscous, and the lithium electrons responsible for discharging are difficult to pass through, and the battery life will be greatly reduced.

Especially the lithium iron phosphate battery, its capacity will decay to 40-55% at -10°C, and only 20-40% remains at -20°C, while the ternary lithium battery can still be at -20°C. Keep normal battery capacity about 70%-80%.

On the other hand, the energy consumption of pure electric vehicles in winter, in addition to the driving motor, the consumption of battery heating and interior heating also accounts for more than half of the energy consumption of the whole vehicle. It can be seen that the heat pump system is particularly important for the owners of new energy vehicles in the north.

Domestic consumers have been exposed to the concept of heat pumps, mostly from the domestic Model 3. Tesla innovatively combines the battery with the cockpit heating system to improve energy efficiency.

However, if the temperature is lower than -10°C, the heat pump air conditioner will not work properly, and it still needs to consume a lot of power to maintain the temperature of the battery and the cabin.

So if necessary, put on a down jacket and turn on the air conditioner less. To understand the principles behind lithium batteries and heat pumps, you can jump to read this article by Tiger Sniff.

The revision of the national standard for electric vehicle charging connection device starts

A few days ago, the National Standardization Administration officially issued the recommended national standard revision plan for the "Electric Vehicle Conductive Charging Connection Device Part 1: General Requirements" proposed by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and under the jurisdiction of the National Automobile Standardization Technical Committee.

This revision of the standard will further increase the charging current and voltage on the basis of my country's current DC charging interface technical scheme, expand functions such as agile control, plug and charge, and scheduled charging to meet the development of high-power charging technology and market demand.

Improving the charging power and expanding the charging network are the primary goals. As for V2G, that's something else.

Toyota's solid-state battery models to be launched within three years

At the recent CES 2022, Gill Pratt, Toyota chief scientist and director of the Toyota Research Institute, reiterated that the first Toyota car with a solid-state battery will not be a pure electric car. At the same time, he said, the car will be launched within three years.

Electric vehicles are still much more expensive to manufacture than gasoline-powered vehicles, so EVs with solid-state batteries will become more expensive.

"While EV manufacturing costs may fall by 2025, it won't be enough to make EVs with solid-state batteries possible," Platt explained.

But he also said: "Once the cost of solid-state batteries drops to a certain level, it will eventually be equipped on Toyota's pure electric models."

For owners of new energy vehicles in the north, sulfide all-solid-state batteries that are less affected by low temperatures may be the optimal solution.

Porsche may become engine supplier for Red Bull Racing

The news of Audi and Porsche joining F1 has been circulating for months, and F1 chief executive Stefano Domenicali said earlier that January would be "an important moment for the group's decision to enter F1." month".

According to the latest news from the British car magazine "Car", Audi and Porsche may appear on the F1 circuit in 2026. Among them, Porsche will become the power unit supplier for Red Bull Racing, while Audi will cooperate with McLaren and provide the power unit.

Wrangler Rubicon 392: Best 4WD SUV of the Year?

Overseas media MotorTrend recently selected the best four-wheel drive SUV in 2021-Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, what's so good about it?

Pairing its 6.4L HEMI V8 engine with the Rubicon package and the latest Xtreme Recon package, this Wrangler Rubicon 392 is no match.

This engine can output 470 horsepower and close to 640N·m of torque. It also has the support of TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission and MP3022 Selec-Trac transfer case, which is the best of its kind.

Fuel economy aside, driving this Wrangler Rubicon 392 on the road is a lot of fun. The transmission shifts quickly and crisply, and MotorTrend's judges had only one problem, and that was that it was too loud—most of the noise came from its hardtop.

On the dunes, the Rubicon 392 is almost unstoppable thanks to its powerful power, 35-inch tires, disconnectable electronic anti-roll bars and many other tech features. But because the front of the car is too heavy, if the speed of the obstacle is too fast, the front suspension will send out a painful howl.

In addition, MotorTrend's judges also mentioned that the car is easily pushed out by strong winds and cannot handle too intense mountain driving.

Today's topic: Have you ever driven a tram and can't get used to a gas car?

Xiaopeng Motors founder He Xiaopeng said in an interview recently:

Once you have driven a tram, you are not used to gas cars.

According to him, the first car in Mr. He's life was a Lexus, and he liked it very much.

"I think that most of the people who have driven smart electric cars will not be used to it when they drive a car that used to be very good. Its experience is completely different." He Xiaopeng said.

Of course, He Xiaopeng's remarks are more inclined to the difference in driving experience. What do you think about this?

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