Tesla to deliver first Semi trucks to PepsiCo

On October 6, local time, Musk said on Twitter that production of the Tesla Semi electric truck has begun, and PepsiCo will get the first vehicles on December 1.

PepsiCo ordered 100 Semis in 2017 to transport food between production and distribution facilities, as well as for home deliveries to retailers within 500 miles.

In addition to PepsiCo, United Parcel Service, Walmart, JB Hunt Transport Services and food service distributor Sysco Corp, among others, have booked Tesla's Semi trucks.

I really want to take a look at its battery, how big will it be?

GM develops pure electric military vehicles for the US military. Will the US soldiers drive electric Hummers?

The U.S. Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) has selected General Motors subsidiary GM Defense to develop a battery pack prototype for DoD platform testing and analysis, PR Newswire reported on October 6.

The DIU required a scalable design that could be used in tactical military vehicles that would be built on GM's state-of-the-art Ultium all-electric platform.

In July of this year, GM Defense made a similar announcement that their GMC HUMMER EV pure electric pickup truck was selected by the U.S. Army for analysis and demonstrations designed to meet the U.S. military’s requirements for battery electric vehicles, reducing both operational and garrisoned environments. Dependence on fossil fuels.

Is this a plan to install a supercharger in the camp?

Tesla will remove ultrasonic radar, adopt 100% vision solution

After removing the millimeter-wave radar, Tesla is finally going to work on the ultrasonic radar.

Tesla recently announced that it will remove the ultrasonic radar from the car within a month and adopt a 100% pure vision solution.

Tesla said they simultaneously launched a vision-based occupancy network to replace ultrasonic radar input. This approach provides Autopilot with high-definition spatial localization, greater distance visibility, and the ability to recognize and differentiate objects.

However, since the software has not been updated, the front and rear summoning, smart summoning, automatic parking, and parking distance assist functions of the new car after the radar is cancelled will be affected, but it will be repaired through OTA in the future.

Germany's largest car rental company will buy 100,000 BYD vehicles

Sixt, Germany's largest car rental company, announced a plan on October 5:

Procurement of 100,000 BYD electric vehicles in 6 years, and the first thousands of electric vehicles ordered will be put into use in the following weeks. At that time, customers in Germany, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom can lease BYD electric vehicles.

Last year, the British public opinion survey company asked more than 2,000 Germans about their attitude towards Chinese cars. According to the survey results, only 27% of Germans said they could choose Chinese cars.

However, the youngest group, 18 to 24 years old, is particularly open to new brands from the Far East, with 38% of respondents saying Chinese brands could be considered. In the oldest target group (over 55 years old), the proportion was only 24%.

Faraday Future executive chairman resigns

According to Bloomberg, the executive chairman of Faraday Future (FF), Susan Swenson, announced her resignation this week, and two other board members will also resign this week.

FF said in a statement that criticism of existing management had escalated into "physical violence and even death threats", culminating in a company restructuring. With this reorganization, the partner team and company founder Jia Yueting has regained control of FF.

At present, FF is also facing issues such as the resignation of auditors, and the US Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an investigation into FF's financial statements.

I feel that the story of FF can be made into a TV series.

Volkswagen considering listing Lamborghini

In addition to INDIEV, Foxconn has also partnered with US electric vehicle brands Lordstown and Fisker.

Musk says he will colonize Mars himself

Musk recently gave an exclusive interview to the Financial Times in which he talked about colonizing Mars:

You have to ask this question: Do we want to be a space-flying civilization, a multi-planetary species? What percentage of resources should we devote to it? I think if you say 1%, that's probably a reasonable number.

He said he would like to be among the first to colonize Mars, "especially if I get older, which I would do. Why not?" he said.

When asked if he had any other illegitimate children, he laughed: "I'm pretty sure there are no other children coming." In addition, he dismissed ludicrous rumors that he had acquired a clinic specifically to support him in having children.

He said some friends did suggest he should have 500 children, but that would be "a little weird" and he might have a few more, but only if he can be a good father to them.

"Need for Speed" new work announced, street theme returns

Need for Speed ​​22: Uninhibited was officially announced last night and will be released on December 2 for $69.99 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S platforms.

The characters in the trailer are all represented in a three-and-two way, which is quite in line with the street theme of this generation, but the gameplay is still "fighting wits with the police", and the biggest highlight may be the original soundtrack produced by A$AP Rocky.

It looks great, so I choose GT7.

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