Jidu Auto, an electric vehicle joint venture between Chinese tech giant Baidu and Chinese automaker Geely, is set to invest $ 7.7 billion in smart cars over the next five years. This was reported in an exclusive publication by Reuters with reference to the executive director of the enterprise Xia Yiping.

The funding will come from Baidu and other investors, he said. The first electric car in Jidu is expected to be released in three years. This is a typical time frame for the industry, but the manufacturer will do its best to cut it.

According to Xia Yping, the robot-like electric car will target younger buyers. Subsequently, Jidu plans to release a new model about once a year or every one and a half years. To implement the project, 2500-3000 people will be hired within two to three years, including 400-500 programmers. At the same time, Jidu expects to use Geely’s open platform for electric vehicles and assemble cars in the city of Ningbo in eastern China, where Geely has several factories.

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 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.

I will vote Republican Musk lashes out at Democrats over

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.
