The All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, the Automobile Dealers Chamber of Commerce and Cheevaluation have jointly released the 2021 China Automotive Residual Value Preservation Annual Report, which shows how much cheaper new-energy vehicles have fallen in the first year.
The list includes top-selling models, including Wuling Hongguang MINI EV, Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model 3, BYD Han, Xiaopeng P7, and more. including Hongguang MINI EV surpassed all expectations and won the first place: in the first year, it retained 89.78% of the original cost on average in the Chinese market. A car costs less in the first year than it would cost to rent another car in China.
As for why the Hongguang MINI EV is slowly getting cheaper there, the main reason is that the manufacturer has reduced its profit margin as much as possible. Recall that an electric car for $ 4,500 was the best-selling over the past 16 months in China.
The Xiaopeng P7 ranked second on the list with 85.67% and also overtook the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y cars, which came in third and fifth respectively. The Porsche Taycan was in fourth position with a score of 83.47%.
Also on the list were BYD, HanGAC Aion Aion V, NIO ES6, GAC Aion Aion S, and BYD Tang.

Honda showed its first electric crossover Prologue. But it will only be released in 2024.
Honda, like many other Japanese brands, is far behind its European competitors when it comes to electrifying their cars. The company already has a Honda e, and now the manufacturer has unveiled its first electric crossover, the Prologue. True, the car will enter the market only in 2024.
Whatever it was, so far we have only one official image. The crossover on it is not very similar to the current Honda models. The source says that Prologue is a joint development of the Japanese giant and GM, but no details yet. It is likely that the Prologue and some General Motors electric cars will have a common platform.
Honda plans to introduce 30 new electric vehicle models by 2030 and expects sales of 2 million units. After launching the Prologue in 2024, Honda plans to begin production of new electric vehicles based on its e:Architecture architecture in 2026, and in 2027 it will have affordable electric vehicles also co-developed with GM.
“I will vote Republican.” Musk lashes out at Democrats over Tesla’s exclusion from S&P 500 ESG index
Tesla was excluded from the S&P 500 ESG at the beginning of the month, but most people only knew about it now that Elon Musk decided to speak out about it.
ExxonMobil ranks in the top 10 in the world in the S&P 500 ESG Index, while Tesla didn’t make it! ESG is a scam. It was used as a weapon by fake social justice fighters.
The fact is that the S&P 500 ESG is an index that takes into account the environmental and social performance of companies. And Musk was obviously hurt that the huge oil company ExxonMobil was on the list, and Tesla was decided to be excluded. And there are even official reasons for the exclusion: Tesla has no strategy to reduce carbon emissions, no code of business conduct, and the company has also been accused of racism and poor working conditions.
But Musk did not stop at one statement.
I’ve voted Democrats in the past because they were (mostly) the goodness party. But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now watch their dirty campaign against me unfold
This is a much more serious statement, since many of Musk’s supporters are his supporters precisely because of his political views. Immediately, Musk made it clear that he changed them. This has already cost Tesla about $40 billion in capitalization, as the company’s shares fell immediately after the publication of its head.
