Denza's high-end MPV has DM and EV dual power modes

On March 28, Zhao Changjiang, general manager of Denza's sales division, once again brought a preview of Denza's high-end MPV.

According to Zhao Changjiang, Denza's new MPV has two power modes, DM and EV, with a comprehensive range of 1,000km, and has various driving modes such as economy, normal, sports, and snow.

He also said that the Denza MPV uses a motor inductance booster and an intelligent battery thermal management system, which can achieve a wide-range heat pump operating temperature of -30~60°C and extend the cruising range in winter. (IT House)

If you want to make a high-end MPV, the luxury of the "lining" is not enough. I think of Mr. Yuan Qicong's NASCAR CEO.

GAC Honda Releases New Electric Brand "e:NP Extreme"

Today (March 29) afternoon, GAC Honda officially released the new electric brand "e:NP", whose Chinese name is "extremely strong".

At the press conference, GAC Honda introduced the meaning of "e:NP", where "e" stands for "energize power" and "electric power", "N" stands for "New" and "Next evolution", and "P" stands for "Prime Ultimate".

The previously released e:NP1 is the first model of Ji Pai, and the Chinese name of the model is "Ji Pai 1".

GAC Honda said that from this year to 2025, the company will launch an extreme electric vehicle every year, and will build an exclusive factory for its new energy models, which will be completed in 2024.

That's right, how can such a complicated name not have a Chinese name.

He Xiaopeng: Next year's battery supply situation will improve

Xiaopeng Motors CEO He Xiaopeng said at the 2021 performance briefing that choosing multiple battery partners is of great value to Xiaopeng.

Insufficient battery supplies are limiting the pace of deliveries in 2021, he said. In the future, Xiaopeng will join hands with suppliers to enhance its ability to prevent and control battery shortages.

In addition, He Xiaopeng predicts that China's battery supply situation will be greatly improved in the second or third quarter of next year. During this period, Xiaopeng will cooperate with battery suppliers to better control battery costs.

As the current supply chain is too tight, Xiaopeng's strategy has changed from "sell first and then deliver" to "determine production capacity first and then sell".

Xiaopeng Motors said that compared with other mass-produced intelligent assisted driving systems in the industry, XPILOT 4.0 will have more comprehensive usage scenarios and wider geographical coverage under the premise of ensuring a high degree of safety. (Sina Technology)

He Xiaopeng said that Xiaopeng's autonomous driving technology is 2-3 years ahead of most companies.

Former Tesla CTO: Electric car batteries should last 15 years

JB Straubel, a longtime CTO at Tesla, recently talked about power batteries, arguing that an electric car's battery should last about 15 years, depending on utilization .

“I think in most cases, it (referring to the battery) can easily reach 15 years, and the battery life may be with the entire life cycle of the vehicle,” Straubel said. Batteries are in old cars.”

Since leaving Tesla, the engineer has been keeping a close eye on the end-of-life situation of electric vehicle batteries, which are critical to his new venture, Redwood Materials.

Redwood Materials is currently developing new processes for recycling materials, and the company's focus is on electric vehicle batteries.

One of the advantages of EVs over gasoline vehicles is that their battery packs still have value when the vehicle and battery are scrapped. Straubel's new venture has partnered with Ford and Volvo to recycle battery packs when they end up. (Sina Technology)

The company also intends to build a 100GWh battery materials factory in the United States.

Ocon: Saudi station is like a kart race

In last weekend's F1 Saudi Grand Prix, the fight between the two Alpine drivers undoubtedly became a major attraction of the race.

Esteban Ocon said the fight with teammate Fernando Alonso was like a "karting race".

Whether it's a fight with teammate Alonso or Norris, it's a lot of fun, and this year's race feels completely different, like a go-kart race.

The gap between Ocon and team-mate Alonso was very small throughout the weekend, and the gap in qualifying lap times was less than 0.1 seconds, which Ocon believes could continue throughout the season. At the same time, competition among teammates is also conducive to improving the performance of the entire team.

As for the team, Alpine does not seem to intend to interfere in the competition between Ocon and Alonso, and Ocon seems to be enjoying it. "It's an honour to take on Alonso and it makes me very satisfied."

It reminded me of the competition between Ocon and Perez, which was also a pink car. Is it true that "the more fans of the racing car, the more ruthless O'Connell"?

Toyota Tundra creative ad: The Joneses

In order to shoot this ad called "The Joneses", Toyota recruited several stars named Joneses.

Including Tommy Lee Jones (Tommy Lee Jones) in the movie "Men in Black", comedian Leslie Jones (Leslie Jones), Rashida Jones (Rashida Jones) in "Toy Story 4", and singer Nick Jonas.

For ordinary people, it may not be so easy to drive a new Tundra in the wild, so you might as well take a look at the advertisement and enjoy it.

Today's topic: Does Buick's new logo look good?

According to a report from Fast Technology, some netizens have recently exposed Buick's new Logo. Judging from the pictures, the color matching of the new Logo has not changed, but the arrangement is different from the current Logo.

The origin of Buick's "Three Shields" logo can be traced back to the family crest of David Dunbar Buick, the founder of the automobile industry. In Buick's current logo, the three shields arranged at different heights also have the allegory of constant climbing.

As for the new Buick logo, it may be used in the production model of the Electra concept car in the future.

Having said that, do you think Buick's new logo looks good?

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