Group car: Two trams will be launched in three years, and the first car will be priced at 100,000-200,000 yuan
On January 21, Tuanche.com announced its preliminary plans for the electric vehicle business.
The company plans to launch two electric vehicles within three years, and the estimated price of the first model will be between 100,000 and 200,000 yuan.
For the group car building, the outside world does not seem to be optimistic. Li Xiang, CEO of Ideal Motors, once bombarded Tuanche for making cars on social platforms, saying that Wen Wei, CEO of Tuanche, is "probably a liar".
Auto Story reported yesterday that Tuanche.com did not issue performance bonuses for all its employees in the second half of last year. After December 30, all employees stayed at home, and the resumption time was undetermined. During the period, there was only a minimum wage of 2,000 yuan per month.
According to Caijing.com, the relevant person in charge of Tuanche.com responded: "Affected by the scattered epidemic situation, in order to avoid large-scale crowd gathering, and to maintain the orderly development of the business in the future, it has been suspended since January 2022. The offline auto show business will resume as soon as the epidemic eases.”
In fact, the main business of group car is not "group purchase", but to cooperate with car companies to build offline car purchase scenarios and earn service fees.
On January 21, Renault Group and Geely Holding Group announced that the two parties signed a framework agreement to produce and sell Renault-branded fuel vehicles and smart hybrid vehicles in South Korea based on Geely Automobile's CMA architecture and hybrid technology, and export them to South Korea. outside the market.
Before cooperating with Geely, Renault has had joint ventures and cooperation with a number of Chinese car companies, but it has not formed a scale in the Chinese market. After entering 2020, Renault took the initiative to shrink its business in China.
In April 2020, Renault withdrew from Dongfeng Renault. So far, Renault ended its fuel passenger vehicle business in the domestic market. (new trip)

On January 18, Ningde Times' wholly-owned subsidiary, Times Electric Service, released the overall solution for combined power exchange.
But capital does not seem to be optimistic about this "revolution of electricity replacement" in the Ningde era. After the announcement of the power exchange strategy, the stock price of CATL fell for two consecutive days, down about 5%.
At present, the input cost of power exchange stations is extremely high, commercial realization is slow, and the battery standards of various companies are not uniform, so it is difficult to achieve unified power exchange.
Although Zeng Yuqun, chairman of Ningde Times, personally "replaced the battery", at the press conference, only the FAW Bestune NAT combination battery replacement version was announced by the Times Electric Service. Zhang Xiang, an independent auto analyst, said that it is difficult for mainstream car companies to accept cooperation in battery swaps.
In the face of the huge challenges in business operations, why does the Ningde era with a market value of trillions have to carry out the "revolution of power replacement"?
At the beginning of this year, LG Energy stated that it will expand production capacity in 6 countries, and said that its global market share will exceed that of Ningde era; BYD is also expanding production in many places in China, and is currently in contact with many car companies; not only that, car companies They are also trying to grasp the core of the battery in their own hands and plan to build their own battery factory.
It is not easy for CATL to keep the number one position. In the past month, CATL’s share price has fallen by more than 15%. Because of this, CATL wants to change.
Only by opening the closed-loop value of the whole life cycle of battery raw materials, battery research and development, manufacturing, use, and recycling can we have the absolute right to speak.
But this will obviously move the "cheese" of car companies.
