Ultra-compact and cheap (about $5,000-$7,000) electric vehicles are popular in China, but the absolute bestseller is the Wuling Mini EV. Many local automakers have already introduced their Wuling Mini EV counterparts (such as Chery QQ Ice Cream and Dongfeng Fengguang Mini EV), and now it’s Geely’s turn. The company showed the Geometry M2, which is likely to be exported outside of China.

Geometry M2 is made in the best traditions of China’s electric micromobiles: three meters long, curb weight 715 kg, 13-inch wheels and 27 or 41 hp. depending on version. You can’t count on the car’s hurricane dynamics, but the Geometry M2, like other cars of the class, is not about this, but about the cheapness of movement. The electric motor is located on the front axle, the capacity of the lithium-iron-phosphate traction battery is not disclosed.

The Geometry M2 not only has an interesting design, it has something that other microcars do not have – a panoramic roof with an area of ​​​​almost … the entire roof. There are no images of the interior, but what you can see is a screen in front of the front passenger and individual seats in the back row. The driver’s instrument cluster screen is likely to be placed on the steering column.

If the Wuling Mini EV has hundreds of appearance options, then the Geometry M2 is simpler: users can only change the color of the grille edging and choose from a couple of wheel covers.

Tesla Semi production has finally begun almost 5 years

According to CEO Elon Musk’s announcement, Tesla has begun production of its Semi electric truck and plans to begin shipping it to Pepsi as early as December 1, 2022.

The soft drink company ordered 100 electric vehicles in December 2017, just a month after Tesla first unveiled its new creation to the world.

Tesla promises that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h mph in 20 seconds even when “fully loaded” and maintain “the same speed as on the highway, even on steep climbs.” It also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes. The power reserve, depending on the version, will be from 480 to 800 km. In Musk’s own words, “driving a car is a lot of fun.”

Until 2022, there was little news about the car. In May, Tesla began accepting orders and taking a $20,000 deposit, and in August, Musk said deliveries of the 500-mile-range version of the truck would begin this year.

Tesla has pushed back the release dates of its vehicles many times. The Cybertruck pickup has been delayed several times, with Musk saying deliveries will now begin in 2023. The second-generation Tesla roadster that was announced alongside the Semi was originally expected in 2020 but has yet to be released.
