The Chinese company GAC showed off the upcoming Aion V EV at Technology Day, which primarily impresses with its fast charging.
While many global brands only make promises, the GAC is already demonstrating a car charger that can dramatically change the situation in the market. According to the manufacturer, depending on the version, charging from 0% to 80% will be enough for 16 or even only 8 minutes!
The demonstration concerned the Aion V EV crossover, which will hit the market in the fall. Phenomenal performance was achieved thanks to the use of graphene batteries.
In more detail, the modification of the Aion V EV 3C with a battery that provides a range of 500 km can be charged from 0% to 80% in 16 minutes, and from 30% to 80% in just 10 minutes. Modification Aion V EV 6C will be able to boast indicators of 8 and 5 minutes, respectively, offering a power reserve of up to 1000 km.
During the demonstration, the charger showed a power of 481 kW. At the same time, the GAC claims that such indicators do not affect the reliability of the battery in any way, and it should provide up to 1 million mileage, albeit at room temperature.
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.
