The FAW Hongqi E001 was spotted during a road test in China. This is a purely electric sedan with a replaceable battery and a range of 600, 800 or 1000 km depending on the version. It is also worth mentioning that this car will appear in Europe. The E001 is currently in the final stages of testing, preparing to hit the market in November.
The luxury brand Hongqi, owned by FAW, was founded in 1959. Previously, Hongqi only supplied cars to the Chinese government. Today it is one of the best selling brands in China. Moreover, in January, Hongqi launched a new brand called Hongqi New Energy. The focus is on electric vehicles and international development. Hongqi New Energy plans to launch in Europe, namely Germany, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and France. Hongqi E001 will be the first car on the international market.
The photo shows that the car has a solid taillight, retractable door handles and five-spoke wheels. The interior is made in black. In addition, it has a round steering wheel, and not cut off, as on a pre-production car.
The Hongqi E001 sedan will receive two engines with a total power of 618 hp. and a maximum torque of 756 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take 3.9 seconds. The size of the battery has not yet been disclosed, but it is known that it is produced using Cell-to-Pack (CTP) technology, while it will be possible to replace the battery in 60 seconds at the respective stations. Hongqi E001 will be able to replenish the range of 350 km in 5 minutes of charging. The sedan will support 30kW wireless charging.
Inside the car will be a long curved screen with a 6-inch instrument panel and a 15.5-inch main screen. There will also be a head-up display with augmented reality. All this will work under the control of FAW.OS of our own design.
Blind pre-orders in China have already begun, the price has not yet been announced, but the first buyers will receive a lifetime warranty and free lifetime maintenance.
We are waiting for the new Model 3 and Model Y: Tesla sharply reduces the prices of its best-selling models
Tesla this year is the most likely to change prices for its models. This time around, the prices of Tesla’s best-selling vehicles have come down, with the biggest drop exceeding $3,000.
Model Y prices were already slightly lowered in the second half of May after being raised earlier that month. Now they have been reduced even further. The Model Y Dual-Motor Long-Range AWD is $55,430, $560 less than before.
The rear-wheel-drive Model 3 received a $3,210 price cut, to $39,530. Tesla indicates on its website that the same model is eligible for up to $3,750 in federal tax credits. The automaker promises to deliver cars during June-July.
According to one version, the automaker just wants to increase its sales and deliveries, so it reduces prices. Strong quarterly results are becoming a hallmark of Tesla.
It’s likely that Tesla is doing its best to liquidate stock in preparation for releasing updated models. Tesla is rumored to be working on an updated version of the Model Y, codenamed Juniper. The car is expected to go on sale in 2024.
There are also rumors about the imminent release of the Model 3 update, codenamed Highland. It can be presented at any time.
Honda Accrod in a new way. Honda Inspire 5m sedan unveiled
In China, the flagship Honda Accord sedan has a sibling called the Inspire, manufactured by Dongfeng Honda. In fact, Inspire – the same Accord, only with a slightly different appearance.
The Inspire has its own grille, bumpers and taillights. The length of the car is 4979 mm: the Inspire is only 1 mm shorter than the Accord. There are slight differences in the interior design: the Inspire has separate ventilation deflectors and a different climate control unit. The choice of transmission modes in Inspire is carried out by buttons, not by a lever.
The power plants have not been declassified, but the inscription e: PHEV on the trunk lid indicates that the Inspire is a plug-in hybrid. Probably, there is the same power plant as the Accord: with a 2.0-liter internal combustion engine and an electric motor with a total power of 206 hp, as well as a traction battery with a capacity of 17.7 kWh. However, it is possible that there will be a purely gasoline version with a 1.5-liter turbo engine with 192 hp.
Inspire will go on sale in China in June, and prices will be announced at the same time.
Why did the first Chinese aircraft COMAC C919 pass through the “water gate” and what does the BYD car have to do with it: new details about the historical event have appeared
On May 28, the newest narrow-body medium-haul airliner COMAC C919 made its first flight on flight MU9191 from Shanghai to Beijing, as we have already reported. Now, BYD has made an additional announcement.
Sometimes passengers of airliners can observe an unusual picture when the plane is doused with water from fire hoses. This is an international tradition, which is treated very reverently. Aircraft are poured over in different cases, for example, if a new airport was built and put into operation in a settlement, then the first aircraft is passed through the “water gate”. The same applies to aircraft that have flown for the first time on a new route or simply models that have made their first flight.
Netizens noticed that a red BYD Tang was standing next to the fire truck. From another angle, a yellow BYD Tang was visible. The manufacturer confirmed that BYD was honored to take part in the historic event, and its vehicles helped serve the first flight of COMAC C919.
Technology shows the strength of our country. BYD Tang welcomes C919! Congratulations on the successful first commercial flight of the C919 and respect for the creators of the aircraft and Chinese technology. Respect to those who work hard to open the way for our country.
