Tesla 4680 battery production may be difficult to increase

According to InsideEVs, Tesla is having difficulty ramping up 4680 cell production due to their "dry coating" process.

Twelve industry experts with knowledge of Tesla's 4680 batteries recently shared with Reuters what they know and say about the manufacturing process.

Experts agree that Tesla still has problems expanding its 4680 battery capacity, which has been in low-volume production since it was put into production this year, and only a small number of Tesla's models can be equipped with 4680 batteries. deliver.

On the other hand, because the output is too small, the 4680 battery, which should have greatly reduced battery costs, could not complete this "mission".

Experts pointed out that if Tesla can successfully increase the production capacity of 4680 batteries, the new battery technology, coupled with the "dry coating" process, can cut the cost of Model Y batteries in half, or $5,500 per vehicle.

Italy's Monza circuit turns 100

This Friday, we will have the third consecutive week of F1 racing – the Italian Grand Prix. The Monza circuit, which was built in 1922, will also celebrate its 100th birthday.

Apple Watch 8 adds car crash detection

Everyone should watch the Apple Autumn Conference in the early morning of the 8th. If you want to know more about it, you can go to Ai Faner.

Let's talk about the crash detection feature of Apple Watch 8 today.

According to Apple, the Apple Watch 8 can detect whether a serious car collision has occurred through multiple internal gravity sensors, and can even distinguish whether it is a frontal collision, rear-end collision, side collision or rollover. Once a car accident is detected, it can automatically call emergency services .

In fact, when smart cars have not yet developed, many car companies will also equip their products with similar functions, such as GM's OnStar, Shenlong's blue-i, and Toyota's G-BOOK. Not particularly important.

First, when buying a car, consumers cannot perceive the importance of these functions. Second, these functions are free for a limited time, and they need to be renewed later to continue using them.

This feature of Apple Watch 8 reminds me of the tragic accident suffered by Bianchi in F1 Japan in 2014. At that time, the G value reached 254G, which should be the highest G value accident in F1 history.

Chery wants to eject you before the crash

According to the Tianyancha App, on September 6, Chery Automobile Co., Ltd. applied for the publication of a patent for “Automobile Separable Ejection Seat and Vehicle”.

The patent abstract shows that the car split ejection seat includes a seat body, a connecting mechanism, an ejection mechanism and a controller.

When the controller receives a collision signal exceeding the set value, it will separate the connecting mechanism, and also control the ejection mechanism to eject the seat upwards into the air.

Chery said that this invention can make the occupants in the vehicle quickly and quickly leave the vehicle in which the collision occurs, and avoid or reduce the casualties of the vehicle when the vehicle is subjected to a huge impact.

So, is it possible to eject the co-pilot with one button?

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