Lamborghini releases new supercars, V12 models will no longer be launched thereafter
Yesterday, Lamborghini announced a set of official pictures of Aventador Ultimae. Ten years after its release, Aventador will also have its ending-Aventador Ultimae will be the last model of the car series.
Lamborghini incorporates many Aventador S and Aventador SVJ elements in the appearance of Ultimae. Although you can't see the exaggerated rear spoiler of the SVJ on Ultimae, it retains the exhaust design on the SVJ and also has the same aggressive bottom diffuser.
The new car uses a lot of carbon fiber materials and weighs only 1550kg, which is 25kg lower than the Aventador S. The interior still continues the design of Aventador, using Alcantara material in a large area.
In terms of power, Ultimae is equipped with the prestigious 6.5L V12 naturally aspirated engine, which can produce 780 horsepower, which is 10 horsepower higher than the Aventador SVJ. It only takes 2.8s to accelerate to 100 kilometers, 8.7s for 0-200km/h, and the top speed can reach 355km/h.
Regrettably, Lamborghini said that this will be Lamborghini's last model equipped with a V12 engine, and the follow-up will focus on hybrid power.
Say goodbye to the V12 Lamborghini.
The new generation of Kia Sportage officially unveiled
The new generation of Kia Sportage is officially released. The new car is based on the N3 architecture and adopts the new "Opposites United" design concept, with a large honeycomb grille and split headlights. The newly designed "Boomerang" style daytime running lights are quite recognizable. It is worth mentioning that the new generation of Sportage has also been replaced with a new Kia Logo.
In addition, Kia has further extended the size and wheelbase of the Sportage, which reached 2755mm. At the same time, there are also great changes in the interior. The large-size central control screen is connected to the LCD instrument, which is full of technology.
In terms of power, the car provides 1.6L TGDI gasoline engine and 2.0L diesel engine. Among them, the maximum power of the gasoline engine is 132kW, and the peak torque is 265N·m; the maximum power of the diesel engine is 137kW, and the peak torque is 417N·m.
This is a comprehensive evolution of vision.
The new Golf R travel version appeared, accelerating from 100 kilometers in 4.9 seconds
A few days ago, Volkswagen released a set of official pictures of the new Golf R Travel Edition. Like the Golf, the car also uses Volkswagen's latest family design language. The difference is that the small letter "R" on the grille declares its identity to the world.
At the rear of the body, you can also see its difference. The Golf R Travel Edition has double-sided exhaust, and the top spoiler and bottom diffuser also distinguish it from the regular Golf. In addition, the car also uses a new style of black sports kit, and is equipped with the iconic blue brake calipers.
This Golf R travel version is equipped with a 2.0T turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 235kW and a peak torque of 420N·m, and is equipped with a four-wheel drive system. It only takes 4.9 seconds to accelerate to 100 kilometers. Want to balance performance and home use? This would be a good choice.
A veritable "Happy Dad Car".
Weilai super-charged piles were shipped to Norway and arrived in early August
At the CPSE International Charging & Swap Exhibition held yesterday, Mr. Lutz Frankhol, Executive Director of TÜV Rheinland Shanghai, officially awarded TÜV Rheinland EU certification to Shen Fei, Vice President of NIO Power Management.
Obtaining EU certification is a mandatory requirement for the export of electrical equipment to Europe, and TÜV Rheinland is one of the most authoritative EU certification authorities, with universal credibility and recognition. This means that NIO's charging and swapping equipment can enter overseas markets and build swap stations, supercharged piles and home charging piles in Europe.
At the same time, NIO’s first batch of power station replacement and overcharged piles were also officially shipped and is expected to arrive in Norway in early August. In September of this year, home filling piles and supercharged piles will be officially delivered to Norwegian users, and the first batch of 4 swap stations will also be completed and put into use within this year.
NIO needs new growth points, and it is overseas.
Tesla Model Y standard battery life version listed, priced at 276,000 yuan
Tesla's official website in China officially launched the Model Y standard battery life version today, with a starting price of 276,000 yuan. The cruising range is 525 kilometers, the top speed can reach 217km/h, and the acceleration from 100 kilometers per hour is 5.6 seconds. It is reported that the Tesla Model Y standard battery life version uses lithium iron phosphate batteries, and the supplier is the Ningde era. But the long battery life and performance version is still the original ternary lithium battery.
With the addition of the Model Y standard battery life version, the domestic Tesla Model Y will have three versions for consumers to choose from, namely the standard battery life version, the long battery life version, and the Performance high-performance version, with a starting price of 27.6 , 34.79, 377.9 thousand yuan.
Musk once said that the potential market size of Model Y is about 2.5 times that of Model 3.
Li Yanhong: Baidu Auto is under development
The 2021 World Artificial Intelligence Conference opened in Shanghai today. Baidu founder Robin Li mentioned relevant information about Baidu's smart cars: Baidu Automobile is under development and is expected to meet with you in 2023.
In addition, Robin Li also said that some people think that a smart car is just a computer with 4 wheels, or a big mobile phone. But in Baidu's concept, smart cars will be more like robots in the future, or the mainstream robots in the future will look more like smart cars.
Baidu just launched a new generation of shared driverless car Apollo not long ago, its goal is to reduce users' travel costs. In the next 2-3 years, Baidu plans to extend its self-driving car sharing service to 30 cities across the country.
If it takes two years to come out, you must have a "big move".
New BMW 5 Series road test spy photos exposed, there will be pure electric models
Yesterday, foreign media exposed a set of road test spy photos of the electric BMW 5 Series. Judging from the spy photos, the exterior design of the new car is slightly different from that of the BMW 7 Series, and it does not use a split headlight design.
A closer inspection reveals that the words "Electric Test Vehicle" are printed on the door, which means that BMW is likely to launch a pure electric version of the new 5 series. But the car is still based on the CLAR platform. The new electric chassis architecture is not expected to be launched until around 2025.
At present, BMW already has a pure electric version of the 4 series-i4, and it is expected that the pure electric version of the 5 series will be called i5.
It is said that the electric version of the 5 series will also launch an M kit version.
Porsche requires suppliers to switch to green energy
Recently, Porsche called on its key component suppliers to use renewable green energy, and made it clear that it will no longer cooperate with suppliers that fail to use green energy for production.
According to previous plans, Porsche's goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. In order to achieve this goal, one of the key measures that Porsche will take is to expand the sales of pure electric vehicles. Porsche estimates that by 2030, sales of electric vehicles will account for 80% of the brand's total sales, and the remaining 20% will be made up of 911. This is Porsche's last insistence on internal combustion engines.
It's hard to imagine what a 911 with a full battery would look like.
Ford announced June sales, new energy vehicles soared 117%
Ford today announced its June sales data, in which the overall sales of new energy vehicles soared by 117%, including pure electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. The data also shows that electric vehicles accounted for 5.7% of Ford's total sales in the first half of this year.
Among them, since the Mustang Mach-E went on the market in May, its sales have increased by nearly 27%, and the total sales of the car in the first half of this year reached 12,975. In terms of hybrid vehicles, the sales of Ford Maverick hybrid and plug-in hybrid models increased by 45.9%, bringing the total number to 15,624.
It is worth mentioning that the upcoming F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck may further boost Ford's sales. At present, Ford has received orders for more than 100,000 F-150 Lightning.
Although the sales growth of electric vehicles is high, its proportion is still too low.
Unmanned AR minibus appears at World Artificial Intelligence Conference
Also at this year's World Artificial Intelligence Conference, SenseTime, one of the "AI Four Dragons", brought an "unmanned AR minibus."
According to reports, this "AR minibus" supports automatic driving, can identify lane lines, traffic signal status, intelligently predict the direction of movement of pedestrians and vehicles, and can automatically stop at specific stations to pick up and drop off passengers. Through fully autonomous navigation and driving, this "unmanned AR minibus" can deliver passengers to their destination point-to-point. It is suitable for scenes such as park ferry and scenic tour.
It is understood that this minibus is also one of the buses that provide shuttle services for participants during the WAIC conference. Passengers can experience the wonderful experience of combining virtual content and reality through the visualization of AI+AR.
Will this be the bus of the future?
Waymo tests self-driving cars in a virtual world
A "truck" composed of blue and gray is driving along a highway, surrounded by dozens of green cubes. These green cubes are constantly merging and overtaking between lanes, and the "truck" always maintains a steady speed.
This is Simulation City, the virtual world used by Google's Waymo, a company specializing in autonomous driving, to test autonomous driving. The blue-gray truck represents a Waymo self-driving semi-trailer truck, while the green cube represents other vehicles on the highway. Waymo trains, tests and validates its autonomous driving programs in this virtual world.
Ben Frankel, Waymo's senior product manager, said that Simulation City will help its self-driving cars continue to "mature" and prepare them for wider use in the future.

Mini brings the Vision Urbanaut concept to real life
On July 1, the Mini Vision Urbanaut concept car made its global debut in Munich. This epoch-making product shows Mini's unique new thinking for future cars.
Mini’s design director Oliver Heimer said: “The Mini brand has always been a model of "creative use of space." In the design of the Mini Vision Urbanaut concept car, we took another step, extending the private space to the public space and creating A refreshed and rich experience."
Mini Vision Urbanaut is committed to maximizing the value of resources. For this reason, the design team has been focusing on continuously reducing the number of interior components and avoiding unnecessary material use from the concept stage. Even the interaction logic has been drastically and innovatively designed.
Mini Vision Urbanaut concept car interior and fabric use a lot of recycled materials, abandon the use of chrome and leather, and avoid any production residues that are harmful to the environment. The main interior materials are fabrics made of recycled materials such as wool, polyester, and Tencel, which make passengers feel warm and comfortable while ensuring a soft and comfortable texture.
The designer uses a single type of material in many places, which is easy to recycle and can be transformed into new products. The steering wheel and part of the floor are made of cork, and the natural material makes the space in the car more warm, comfortable and unique. The material concept of Mini Vision Urbanaut well demonstrates the visual and tactile texture of vehicle interiors under the concept of sustainability.
