Polestar 5 road test spy photos exposed

The foreign media Motor.es exposed the road test photos of the Polestar 5 yesterday. Although the vehicle was camouflaged, the appearance of the Polestar 5 is no longer a secret since the patent map of the Polestar 5 has been published.

It can be seen from the patent image that the appearance of the new car is basically the same as that of the concept car. The biggest difference is that the production car adopts a conventional door opening method, rather than the side door design on the concept car.

Coming to the rear, the only difference between the real car and the concept car is the position of the license plate frame.

The Polestar 5 will be built on the Geely SEA platform, not the previous SPA2. The new car will be released in 2024 and is expected to be equipped with a dual-motor four-wheel drive system with a maximum power of more than 500 horsepower.

This is the first time the Polestar 5 has been tested on public roads, and it feels like this is what the Polestar should do.

Ideal declaration ideal L9 new front face

Li Li has previously announced that the full-size SUV Li Li L9 will be released on June 21. Ideal, however, appears to be putting the finishing touches on the new car's exterior.

▲The first version of the ideal L9

The new version of the declaration map of the ideal L9 appeared on the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology today.

Ideal mainly adjusted the front face of the new car, moving the front surround ribs under the star ring lights to the line, so that the visual center of gravity of the front face is more focused on the upper light group. (cnBeta)

Let's find fault together?

Cadillac unveils Celestiq teaser

GM released several teaser images of Cadillac's new all-electric luxury sedan, the Celestiq, yesterday, saying it "represents Cadillac's design, technology and performance at its purest."

This is the first time GM has released pictures of Celestiq, which will form Cadillac's luxury pure electric product line with the pure electric SUV Lyriq.

Like Lyriq, Celestiq will also be based on the common Ultium Alternator platform. The difference is that the Celestiq will be the first model to feature the universal Ultra Cruise advanced driver assistance system.

Of course, the price will be in line with the Lyriq. By the way, friends who like Cadillac can pay attention to the 1.5T CT4 just unveiled by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

AITO M5 pure electric version unveiled

Yu Chengdong revealed at the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Auto Show a while ago that the AITO M5 pure electric version is coming soon. Sure enough, it appeared in the declaration catalogue of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology today.

The pure electric version of AITO M5 is named M5e. According to the declaration information, the M5e is divided into two versions: rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. The former has a 200kW motor, and the latter is additionally equipped with a 165W front The motor, the total power reached 365kW.

It can be seen that the biggest difference between the M5e and the M5 is that the pure electric M5e has removed the original large-size air intake grille, and has a stronger sense of integration.

According to Yu Chengdong's previous statement, Wenjie M5e will be released in September and delivered in October.

The first show of Jidu ROBO-01, equipped with liftable lidar

On the evening of June 8, Baidu's auto brand Jidu Automobile officially released its first concept car ROBO-01 to the outside world, but the entire press conference was held in Baidu's metaverse space Xiyang, and there was no real car display.

Jidu has always emphasized that the ROBO-01, a concept car model of Jidu, is a future-oriented car robot, showing Jidu's futuristic design.

The most eye-catching feature of this concept car is naturally the liftable lidar on both sides of the hood, which covers a horizontal 180° FOV and can actively collapse to protect pedestrians, making it more capable of dealing with extreme scenarios such as "ghost probes".

In addition, the front face of ROBO-01 also integrates interactive AI headlights and AI voice interaction system, which can transmit information to the outside world through lamp language.

In terms of intelligent driving, Jidu claims that this car has a "vision + lidar" autonomous driving solution, inheriting the full set of capabilities and safety systems of Apollo's high-level autonomous driving. When the product is delivered to the market, users can realize "out of the box" ”, no OTA upgrade required.

Jidu said that the production model will retain 90% of the design and functions of the ROBO-01 concept car, and a limited-edition production model will be launched as soon as this fall.

This conference… how do I put it, it sounds like a metaverse, but I feel more like a cartoon. (manual dog head)

BMW confirms new M2 will be a fuel M Power swan song

BMW M CEO Frank van Meel confirmed in an interview with Bimmer Today yesterday that the new M2 will be the last M Power performance car to be powered only by an internal combustion engine.

NIO denies partnership with AMD

On June 6, AMD China posted on Weibo that its EPYC series processors will empower NIO's HPC platform and provide computing power support for NIO.

On June 8, Ma Lin, senior director of corporate communications at Weilai, forwarded the Weibo and denied the cooperation with AMD:

Weilai has not cooperated with AMD, nor has it discussed cooperation at present, nor authorized AMD to carry out this communication. AMD's move is very regrettable. After negotiation, AMD only deleted the news on the official website, and the marketing activities on Weibo still exist. Please AMD delete this tweet.

On the evening of the 8th, AMD China deleted the original Weibo and said that it "looks forward to extensive cooperation between the two parties in the future." Ma Lin also responded to this later, saying that "my previous statement was too tough" and "if you don't fight, you don't know each other."

It doesn't look like he didn't graduate, it feels like he's in the atmosphere this wave.
