The wonderful column of the world, one city per issue, will lead you into Gothenburg, the city of industrial innovation in Sweden.

  The first impression of Gothenburg

  Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden, as a pearl on the west coast of Sweden, is also a small and beautiful industrial science and technology city in Sweden, shining with the light of innovation everywhere.

  Gothenburg is a famous Nordic city with a long history. In 1619, King Gustav Adolphus of Sweden ordered the construction of Gothenburg as an important military fortress against Denmark. The unique geographical advantages make Gothenburg the largest port in Sweden. In 1732, the first merchant ship of the Swedish East India Company went to China for business, and set sail from Gothenburg. In the following 75 years, Sweden and China completed 129 maritime trade.

  The long history has not stopped Gothenburg’s industrial development and technological innovation. As the leading industrial city in Sweden, Gothenburg is the base camp of many well-known international enterprises. The headquarters of Volvo, Ericsson, Hasselblad camera and SKF bearing are all in Gothenburg. At present, Gothenburg’s new city plan is under way. Through the expansion and development of the outer suburbs of the city, Gothenburg will become a fertile ground for more innovative technologies and enterprise development.

  Gothenburg is a multifaceted city, which is quiet and gentle and exudes the charm of northern European cities; At the same time, it is full of vitality and strives for innovation.

  Learning in Gothenburg Education

  Gothenburg has two famous universities-chalmers university of technology and the University of Gothenburg. Both famous universities offer undergraduate and master programs in English. Chalmers university of technology is a well-known institute of technology in Europe and even the world, while Goethe-Borg University is a prestigious comprehensive research university in Sweden.

  chalmers university of technology

  Chalmers university of technology, founded in 1829, is a polytechnic university focusing on engineering technology, natural science and architecture. Its popularity is second only to the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology. About 40% of engineers and architects in Sweden graduated from Chalmers University, which is also the university with the highest employment rate in Sweden. Chalmers University has 17 colleges with 10,000 registered students and more than 3,000 faculty members.

  Chalmers university of technology has outstanding scientific research strength, and has made outstanding achievements in eight fields, namely, built environment, energy and power system, information and communication technology, life science engineering, new material science and nanotechnology, industrial production and automation, vehicles and transportation. Chalmers university of technology has two campuses, one is Johanneberg’s main campus in the city center, and the other is Lindholmen’s campus on Hinsingen Island. Among them, Lindholmen campus is located in Gothenburg IT Park, adjacent to many well-known companies such as Volvo and Ericsson.

  With the in-depth cooperation between China and China in automobile manufacturing R&D and communication engineering, the employment prospects of science and engineering students studying in Gothenburg are getting better and better, and more China students choose to study in chalmers university of technology.

  University of Gothenburg

  As a well-known comprehensive university in Sweden, Gothenburg University is second only to Uppsala University and Lund University in Sweden. The predecessor of the University of Gothenburg is the University College of Gothenburg, which was founded in 1891. After a hundred years’ development, the University of Gothenburg has developed from an initial college into a comprehensive university that includes natural science, humanities, social science, business law, education, medical science, information technology, design and art. At present, the University of Gothenburg has 8 colleges and 57 disciplines, with a wide range of specialties.

  The medical school of Gothenburg University is very famous, and its dental specialty has always been in the leading position. The School of Business Economics and Law of the University of Gothenburg is one of the well-known business schools in Europe. The school has established cooperative relations with many advanced universities in the world, and both undergraduate and master students can get rich exchange opportunities. At present, international students in China can apply for Volvo Scholarship set up by Gothenburg University and Volvo Group, and students who have won this scholarship also have the opportunity to enter Volvo for internship.

  The colleges of Gothenburg University are scattered in different areas of the city, and it is a city university without walls. At present, the school has 47,000 registered students and 6,000 faculty members, of which 59% are women, which reflects the Swedish values of gender equality.

  Gothenburg on the tip of her tongue gourmet pian

  When it comes to Swedish food, IKEA meatballs with mashed potatoes have become Sweden’s "national dish" in everyone’s eyes. In fact, there are many interesting food cultures and rich foods in this Nordic country.

  No FIKA, no Sweden

  Fika is a unique word in Sweden, which is generally used to describe the coffee break. As the third largest coffee consumer in the world, Swedes have two fixed Fika hours every day-10 am and 4 pm. During these two periods, whether office workers or students, everyone will put down their work and make themselves a cup of coffee and eat a snack.

  There are chocolates, cakes, coconut towers, almond cakes, etc. in the dessert period of Fika, but cinnamon rolls are definitely the stars of Fika dessert industry. This sweet roll with butter, sugar and cinnamon powder is a favorite of Swedes. According to statistics, the average Swede eats 312 cinnamon rolls a year. The Swedes also designate October 4th every year as "cinnamon roll day", which shows the position of this bun in the hearts of Swedes. If you have a chance to visit Gothenburg, you must go to Café Husaren in Haga Old Town and try a cinnamon roll that is "bigger than your face". At the same time, don’t forget to order a cup of moderately roasted coffee, which is popular among Swedish people, and enjoy Fika slow time with family and friends.

  It turns out that Swedes also love crayfish.

  The second Thursday of August every year is the "Crayfish Festival" in Sweden. Eating crayfish is a ritual activity in Sweden. First of all, the place to eat crayfish must be outdoors and close to nature; Secondly, everyone should wear peaked party hats to create a happy atmosphere for eating shrimp. Of course, eating crayfish is indispensable for spirits. For Swedes, a bite of shrimp and a bite of wine is what a crayfish party should look like. If you think this is the whole ceremony for Swedes to eat crayfish, you are wrong, because stubborn Swedes also have a set of cooking secrets for crayfish, and Strindberg, a great Swedish writer, also described the cooking and eating methods of crayfish in his works.

  Gothenburg, as a coastal city, is rich in sea prawns. Unlike freshwater crayfish, this kind of seawater crayfish has a long fishing period. Even if you visit Gothenburg in months other than August, you can still taste sea crayfish. Next time you come to Gothenburg, you can visit the Fish Church, which was founded in 1874, where you can buy all kinds of seafood and taste delicious snacks. If you love sunshine as much as Swedes, you must drink beer and eat seafood outdoors when the weather is fine.

  Canned herring challenge

  At the end of August every year, a group of "brave Swedes" gather by the stream to launch the canned herring challenge. Although smelly herring is a traditional food in Sweden, not all Swedes can accept this stinking food.

  The canned herring in Sweden uses the small herring in the Baltic Sea. The small herring caught will be pickled and fermented in an ancient way. In the later stage of fermentation, with the accumulation of time, both ends of the can will begin to swell. In order to avoid excessive pressure and "charming" smell when opening, the can of herring must be opened underwater, which is why the challenge must be held by the stream.

  Although smelly herring has a strong smell, its unique and exciting taste can’t be given up for those who love it. In Sweden, people will put the eviscerated herring on thin bread with butter and eat it with cooked potatoes and chopped onions.

  Visit Gothenburg and Scenic Spots

  As a famous Nordic city with a long history, the buildings and streets in downtown Gothenburg have a strong historical atmosphere. Compared with the Grand Palace in Stockholm, the historical buildings in Gothenburg have a unique style, which is very exquisite and simple. On the other hand, Gothenburg is an industrial city in Sweden, and the science and technology park built across the sea reflects the city’s innovative temperament to the fullest.

  Stroll along Haga Old Street.

  Haga Old Street is the most charming ancient block in Gothenburg. The cobblestone streets are lined with quaint wooden houses. Here, you can find design shops, antique shops, cafes and furniture stores. Many storefronts still retain the style of houses in the 19th century. No wonder some people say that walking in Haga block is like coming to a Nordic fairy tale town. If you want to buy some gifts with Swedish characteristics, you can look at Haga Tr?toffelfabrik Wooden Shoe Store on Haga Old Street. You can buy handmade wooden shoes and leather products with Nordic characteristics.

  If you visit Gothenburg in spring, you can walk along Haga Old Street to Haga Cathedral, which is the most beautiful spring lawn in the whole city. If the sun is just right, it is better to sit on the floor like the Swedes and enjoy the bright and warm sun.

  The largest amusement park in northern Europe

  As the largest amusement park in northern Europe, Liseberg is the most popular tourist attraction in Sweden, and about 3 million people come here every year. At present, Risebon has 35 different amusement facilities, and there is also the largest three-dimensional cinema in Northern Europe.

  Amusement parks plan theme activities for some festivals every year. For example, Easter in spring and Christmas in winter. Among them, the Christmas market in winter is the most popular. Hand-made jam, traditional cheese, onion herring, deer meat and other holiday products that are necessary for Christmas can be found. Many stores also offer tasting, so everyone can have a good time while playing. If you are a music lover, Risebon Amusement Park is also worth a visit. Many European and American music stars will choose to hold concerts here, and pop music, heavy metal or opera can be heard here.

  Volvo museum

  If you are a car enthusiast, don’t miss the Volvo Car Museum. It shows the development process of Volvo car brand in all directions. The museum’s physical exhibitions include Volvo’s first V40 car in 1972 to the newly designed model car. Here, you can also see buses, trucks and aircraft engines designed by Volvo. If you are a car history enthusiast, you can also see the entrepreneurial scenes of Volvo founders Brisson and Larsson.

  As the birthplace of Volvo cars, you can not only visit the Volvo Museum in Gothenburg, but also experience Volvo buses at any time and feel the comfortable ride experience brought by new energy buses.

  Lindholmen science and technology park

  Lindholmen Science Park in Hinsingen is the most popular innovation base in Gothenburg, and well-known enterprises such as Volvo Group, Ericsson and SKF all have office buildings in the park. Different from the historical sense of the old city across the river, Lindholmen shows the enthusiasm and vitality of Gothenburg. The most eye-catching thing in the park is the library of Chalmers University. This colorful building is a representative work of new Nordic design. The exterior wall of the building can be changed in color, and the electricity of the whole building is supplied by sustainable energy.

  If you are interested in the urban development of Gothenburg, you must visit the urban exhibition hall in the park. The sand table in the exhibition hall shows the urban development plan for the next five years, and the on-site staff will also introduce the planning concept to you in English, which is very interesting. Lindholmen Science and Technology Park has convenient transportation, the ferry to the city center runs every five minutes, and there are two expressways connecting other areas of the city.

  Feel Gothenburg Climate

  Gothenburg, located on the southern coast of Sweden, has a typical maritime climate. Compared with Stockholm, the capital near the north, its climate is more livable, and the winter temperature is obviously higher than that of most cities in Sweden. Gothenburg, as a coastal city, is often affected by the sea breeze, and the rainy season is long. It is recommended that you take rain gear and take precautions against wind when traveling.

  Every year from June to September is the best tourist season in Gothenburg. At this time, Gothenburg has enough light and the daytime can reach more than 12 hours. It is a veritable "city where the sun never sets". The temperature in Gothenburg can climb to 25 degrees in summer, which is the best time to travel.

  Walking through Gothenburg, Traffic

  Trams, buses and ferry boats are the main means of transportation in Gothenburg. Among them, trams are the most distinctive, and many lines still have historical models that need to ring the bell to stop. Long lines and slow running are the characteristics of Gothenburg trams. Almost all the routes pass through the main roads and scenic spots in the city center. If you want to "roam" the city, trams must be the first choice. Because there are many water systems in the whole city and many islands are distributed around it, ferry boats are also the characteristic traffic in Gothenburg. When the weather is fine, the ferry is the first choice for many citizens, and everyone can fully enjoy the sea breeze and sunshine.

For tourists and international students, walking and cycling are not convenient, so it is particularly important to get a bus card. There are many kinds of bus cards in Gothenburg, including three-day tickets, five-day tickets, monthly tickets and quarterly tickets. Students can also enjoy discounts with their student ID cards. For details, you can consult at large transportation hubs and convenience stores.

  Gothenburg, a vibrant Nordic city. Here you can experience the slow-paced life in Sweden, and you can also feel the concept of sustainable development of the city. It seems that influenced by the warm ocean monsoon, people here are more open and friendly. Gothenburg, whether it is its history, its academic atmosphere or its life atmosphere, is worth your personal visit.

Guangzhou Auto Show came to an end on 26th, and the popularity in the exhibition hall was high. Nanfang Daily reporter Wang Juntao photo

  On November 26th, the 21st Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, which lasted for 10 days, came to an end. The number of visitors exceeded 800,000 for the first time, reaching 847,000, an increase of 11.4% compared with 760,000 in 2019. At the same time, the organizing committee announced that the next auto show will be held from November 15th to 24th, 2024.

  On the closing day, due to the weekend, the exhibition ushered in a peak passenger flow, and many consumers rushed to place orders. Near the end of the year, the effects of new car listing, favorable policies and promotion of car companies are gradually emerging, and the automobile circulation is more "alive" and the automobile consumption is more "prosperous", which promotes the development of the automobile industry in terms of quantity and quality and injects new vitality into the high-quality development of Guangdong.

  Upward quality Intelligentization drives the change of consumption concept

  Guangzhou Auto Show is the last large-scale auto show in China this year. Around the year-end closing battle, major manufacturers have tried their best to increase terminal promotion and stimulate consumers’ enthusiasm of "buying in buy buy".

  BYD booth, the audience jostled shoulder to shoulder. In the exhibition area on the first floor, many people got into the new car and learned more about the control details such as intelligent driving from the staff. In the negotiation area on the second floor, staff members can talk with interested consumers everywhere. "BYD just cut the price again, and now it can be shot." Zhang Yi, a prospective car owner from Shunde, Foshan, said.

  With the accelerated transformation of automobiles to intelligence and electrification, the "wide goods" represented by BYD are favored by consumers. The data shows that BYD’s sales of new energy vehicles reached 1.86 million in 2022, and it is expected to exceed 3 million this year.

  At the same time, in order to meet the consumer’s mentality of "buying a car to go home for the New Year", the official selling prices announced by many first-time models are lower than market expectations, even lower than the previous generation models. For example, the delivery price of Polar Star 4 released during the Guangzhou Auto Show dropped by about 50,000 yuan compared with the price displayed at the Shanghai Auto Show in April.

  "The popularity of new energy vehicle booths is significantly higher than that of fuel vehicles, and the rise of domestic brands has triggered a change in consumption concepts." Zhou Fatao, secretary-general of Guangdong New Energy Automobile Industry Association, noticed during the exhibition that with the continuous improvement of domestic brands’ manufacturing power and strong competitiveness in vehicle design, core technology and service, the price-performance ratio of products has been steadily improved, and even differentiated competition has been formed with luxury cars. "But low price is not synonymous with low quality. The development of new energy automobile industry has been gradually scaled up, and the cost of bicycles is constantly decreasing, which has further opened up enterprises ‘ Price war ’ The space. "

  The technological advantages of new energy vehicles are being transformed into real money orders. The pre-sale of Zhijie S7 was opened for 4 days, and it was set to exceed 10,000 units; Haobo HT36 hours orders exceeded 10,000, and the cumulative orders exceeded 30,000 units … … During the auto show, major car companies released "transcripts" one after another, showing great enthusiasm of consumers. 

  Policy assistance Car sales are expected to hit a new high.

  As a mass consumption, automobile consumption is an important starting point for stabilizing the economy and promoting consumption at present.

  Just a few days ago, the general office of the provincial government issued "Several Measures to Further Boost and Expand Consumption in Guangdong Province", and put forward a number of measures to further promote automobile consumption. For example, Guangzhou and Shenzhen further relaxed the application qualification for car purchase indicators, and this year Guangzhou increased the quota of 50,000 unplanned energy-saving fuel vehicles.

  The introduction of a series of measures has further released the consumption potential. "Taking advantage of Guangzhou’s increase in energy-saving fuel vehicle indicators, I plan to buy a hybrid car, and I don’t have to worry about queuing for charging on the expressway when I return home." Mr. Liu from Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province went straight to GAC Toyota, and his "Heart Water" model was a hybrid version of Toyota Lei Ling.

  During the auto show, Feng Xingya, general manager of Guangzhou Automobile Group, said that the new energy vehicle market continued to grow this year. Among them, compared with pure electric vehicles, energy-saving vehicles such as extended range and plug-in have a faster growth rate. Facing the emerging market demand, GAC has long been laid out, and energy-saving and new energy vehicles are gradually becoming a new growth point of GAC Group’s business. In the first half of the year, the penetration rate of new energy vehicles reached 20.3%, and the total penetration rate of energy-saving and new energy vehicles was 38.7%, up by 16.4 and 24.6 percentage points respectively compared with 2020.

  The rise of energy-saving and new energy automobile industry is a microcosm of the high-quality development of Guangdong automobile industry. Driven by various consumption promotion policies, automobile marketing activities and a large number of new models, Guangdong’s automobile industry has shown a pattern of booming production and sales. According to the statistics of Guangdong Automobile Industry Association, this year is 1-mdash; In September, the production and sales of automobiles in the province were 3,558,100 and 3,504,300 respectively, up by 14.9% and 15.1% respectively.

  After years of continuous decline, car sales are expected to rebound and hit a new high this year. China automobile dealers association predicted that with the "Double Eleven" activities and the year-end sales of car companies and dealers in December, the domestic retail sales of passenger cars in 2023 is expected to be close to 22 million, achieving a 5% growth.

  Lin Jiang, a professor of economics at Lingnan College of Sun Yat-sen University, said that domestic brands seized opportunities such as intelligence and electrification in the changing situation, and let the outside world see the resilience and charm of Guangdong’s automobile industry. At the same time, good products, in turn, further promote automobile circulation and expand automobile consumption. The supply side and the demand side simultaneously exert their strength, influence each other and promote each other, which is of great significance for Guangdong to adhere to the manufacturing industry as the master and promote high-quality development.

Exclusive spoiler! What did Lectra 09 steal from Volvo?

How much blood relationship does Geely Link have with Volvo? This question has been a tacit question since Geely bought Volvo passenger cars. In recent years, Geely seems to emphasize the "kinship" with Volvo more and more in product announcement, such as the CMA platform and DriveE powertrain used by Xingrui (parameter picture), Xingyue L, Lectra 01 and other models.

But in the user’s mind, after all, it is still powershift, and it may be a bit far-fetched to say that Xingyue L is the replacement of XC60. And this Lingke 09 from SPA platform, which will be listed in the fourth quarter, can undoubtedly say with confidence: I am the shell replacement of XC90.

We don’t need to say much about the internal and external design, materials and intelligent configuration of the Lectra 09. Everyone can see these things. As the flagship of Lectra, Geely will never let us down in this respect. Today, we will focus on talking about what unique attributes Volvo SPA platform has given Link 09 in three major areas.

Volvo SPA Extensible Architecture Technology

Volvo SPA scalable architecture technology was first applied on XC90, and it was also from the new generation XC90(2015 model) that Volvo began to fully expand the diversified powertrain of Drive E series. In fact, the platform only gave birth to Volvo’s mid-to high-end SUVs, cars and station wagons, which laid the unique positioning of the brand flagship from the bloodline.

Drive E powertrain: inverted layout, compatible with exhaust gas turbine+mechanical pressurization.

Of course, the powertrain is the first to bear the brunt. In fact, this is not the first of the Lectra 09. The active Xingrui, Xingyue, Lectra 01, etc. are all "stealing" from Volvo in a large area, including this Drive E engine that originated from the SPA platform, but it has always been a T-series version.

48V light mixing system (BMW)

According to the official introduction, the 2.0T+8AT powertrain used in the fuel version of Lectra 09, like the new XC90 and XC60, adds a 48V light mixing system, which is a serious "B series" Drive E. The author has always insisted that the 48V light mixing based on the radial flux motor (BSG) motor is of little significance to fuel economy, but at least in hardware, the Lectra 09 is really a complete replica of the Volvo XC90.

In addition, the Lectra 09 continues to offer a 2.0T plug-in hybrid version, which also "steals" Volvo, and uses the Drive E series T8 power system with a high probability to provide power for the rear wheels through the P4 bridge. However, the official has not released the specific data for the time being, and it is not clear whether its front axle uses a 2.0T T6 engine (turbo+mechanical double pressurization).

The front/rear independent T8 system can only be mixed.

The 2.0T hybrid version of petrol-electric vehicle is a new gadget created by Lectra 09. Volvo T8 plug-in hybrid system can’t be "magic change" into a hybrid system of petrol-electric vehicle, because the P4 bridge is not in P2 layout, and the front/rear axle power systems do not interfere with each other, so it is impossible to achieve effective electromechanical coupling, which is essentially different from Toyota THS and BYD DM-I.

Aisin 8AT is not compatible with P2 oil-electricity hybrid.

In fact, the announcement for the hybrid version of Lectra 09 only emphasized the 2.0T engine, and kept silent about the Aisin 8AT transmission. The core reason is that the horizontal Aisin 8AT is not compatible with the P2 hybrid module at all. With the current technical reserve of Geely Volvo, it is impossible to build a planetary gear transmission with integrated motors in a short time. Personally, I guess that the hybrid version of Lectra 09 will probably use a 7-speed powershift with P2 layout.

The blade spring rear damping of XC90

Link 09 rear suspension

Finally, the chassis system, which is the most significant difference between SPA and CMA, is also the original creation of Volvo. XC90, S90 and Lectra 09, which originated from SPA platform, all use lightweight aluminum alloy lower swing arm, and are equipped with the combination of leaf spring and damping shock absorber. This thing has the function of a stabilizer bar, and it may be that Lectra 09 will also make a version of an air shock absorber.

● Summary:

As the flagship SUV of the Lectra brand, Geely Automobile really invested heavily in this Lectra 09, which not only inherited the original power chassis system of XC90, but also introduced a more compatible hybrid version of oil and electricity from more innovative. These are the core technologies that are not available in Xingrui and Xingyue of CMA platform.

From the user’s point of view, the Lectra 09 is a medium and large SUV with 6 seats /7 seats, and its price is likely to be controlled at around 300,000, regardless of the hard power of the three pieces or the static experience of the product. Isn’t this thing better than Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen at the same price?

On September 18th, the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference and Edge Intelligence Theme Forum was held in Shanghai. The theme of the forum was "Edge Computing, Smart Future" and it was one of the important theme forums of the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Conference.

Yu Kai, founder and CEO of Horizon, stressed in his speech that human beings are moving from the era of big data to the era of big computing, and the trend of edge computing is the result of the global Internet technology trend "long-term integration and long-term separation".

"In the PC era, all calculations are on computers, not local calculations. With the development of the Internet, data is increasingly transferred to the cloud and the center, and computing is slowly concentrated from the edge to the cloud. From the beginning of the mobile Internet to the arrival of the Internet of Things era, we have gradually seen another trend-more computing has migrated from the center to the edge. "

At the same time, he also predicted that by 2025, the computing power that every thousand dollars can buy is equivalent to 1000 T, which is enough to support the computing needs of five-level driverless driving. If we continue to develop the matching software system based on this, it is predicted that by 2030, the real five-level unmanned driving will become possible. The interesting thing about the technological trend is that the computing power of 1000 T’s is just equal to that of human brain, which is also a development result worth pondering.

Shenzhen-Shantou Special Cooperation Zone may become a pilot project for the construction of smart cities.

As the "10+1" zone in Shenzhen, the Shenzhen-Shantou Special Cooperation Zone has always been concerned by the outside world. At the two sessions of Guangdong Province held at the beginning of this year, the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Agricultural Workers’ Party put forward the Proposal on Accelerating the Integrated Development of Shenzhen-Shantou Special Cooperation Zone and Shenzhen. The reporter was informed that the Shenzhen Municipal Government recently responded to the proposal, revealing that it will speed up the establishment of a rapid transportation network in Shenzhen and Shantou, and create an innovative experimental zone in the "enclave" of the cooperation zone in the fields of smart city construction, marine management, talent management and institutional reform, so as to promote the integrated development of the "10+1" zone and Shenzhen.

It is understood that according to the "Adjustment Plan of System and Mechanism of Shenzhen-Shantou Special Cooperation Zone" approved by the Guangdong Provincial Party Committee and the provincial government, it clearly supports the recent construction of a high-speed railway with a speed of 350 kilometers per hour in the Shenzhen-Shenzhen special cooperation zone (hereinafter referred to as "Shenzhen-Shantou Railway"). In its reply, the municipal government revealed that Shenzhen has proposed the Shenzhen-Shantou Railway Station (Xili-Pingshan-Huizhou-Cooperation Zone, which connects with the Guangzhou-Shantou Railway at the Shenzhen-Shantou Station in the Cooperation Zone). The initial planned length of the line is about 130 kilometers, and the investment is estimated at 23.5 billion yuan. At present, the Provincial Development and Reform Commission has entrusted the design unit to carry out the pre-feasibility study of the project. (Source: Shenzhen Business Daily)

The automatic parking service technology jointly developed by Daimler and Bosch is based on the L4 stage of automatic driving, but it has little requirements for the whole vehicle and sensors, so it is a black technology with universal value. To some extent, Bosch, as a supplier, will be the biggest beneficiary, but Mercedes-Benz must be the leader of this technology.

Chen Ming, president of Bosch Intelligent Networking Division in China, said: "The automatic parking service technology jointly developed by Bosch and Daimler is another effort made by both parties towards intelligent and connected transportation in the future. This new technology will make traditional manual parking a thing of the past, helping drivers save parking time and relieve anxiety. "

It is worth noting that this technology has low requirements on the vehicle itself and sensors, which on the one hand reduces the use cost of the owner, and consumers do not need to pay for too many sensors. On the other hand, it is more convenient to calculate when multiple vehicles use the automatic parking service system at the same time, so as to reduce the accident probability.

Investors and analysts are cautiously optimistic about the listing of extreme US stocks seeking a valuation equivalent to Weilai Automobile.

  China’s rapidly rising new car-making companies are in the fiercest market competition, which makes them more motivated to seek rapid landing in the capital market. The latest one is Krypton, which has just been established for two years.

  If the IPO is successful, Krypton will be the fastest start-up car company established and listed. At present, the China Securities Regulatory Commission has confirmed the filing information of Krypton’s listing outside the United States, and Krypton also started a roadshow three weeks ago to test investors’ reaction.

  If it goes well, this IPO with a financing scale of over US$ 1 billion will become the largest IPO of China companies in the United States since Didi raised US$ 4.4 billion in mid-2021.

  A number of investors told the interface news that there is a great possibility of successful listing.Even when the capital is the most active, it takes the shortest time to build a car.It also took four years.

  A person close to the investor of Krypton roadshow told the interface news that Krypton has not yet negotiated with domestic and Hong Kong investment institutions, and the focus is still on overseas investors. As of the beginning of September, Krypton has held water testing meetings with some investment institutions in Singapore and Europe.

  Judging from the preliminary negotiation results, Krypton hopes to get a valuation of $18 billion, which is equivalent to the current US stock market value of Auto, whose latest market value has reached $18.274 billion.

  Several industry investors told Interface News that this valuation was higher than expected. For reference, the acquisition of shares of Volkswagen GroupThe latest market value after the stock price soared was $15.8 billion. In February this year, the post-investment valuation of Krypton Pre-A financing was $13 billion.

  Considering that it is still in the early stage of intentional communication, there will still be room for downward adjustment in the offer to investors.

  In recent years, more and more traditional automobile manufacturers in China have established brand-new electric brands, launched independent teams and new products equipped with the latest technology. They are eager to occupy the global pure electric vehicle market and pursue success in the long-term capital market.

  Extreme krypton isIts pure electric brand is also one of the new brands of traditional automobile companies that are closest to IPO at present. At the same time, it is reported that Ai ‘an, a sub-brand of GAC, may be listed before the end of the year.

  Krypton is likely to become another China automobile company to land in the US stock market. It has been three years since Tucki was successfully listed on the NYSE, and it is the last new China car-making force to land on the US stock market.

  It must be admitted that at present, Krypton wants to get a market valuation equivalent to the next "Wei Xiaoli", and the difficulty coefficient doubles.The environment in which it is listed in the US stock market is completely different from the active period of the capital market, and the enthusiasm of investors for the reform of the automobile industry has gradually cooled down.

  The craze for China companies to go public in the United States began in the 1990s, and the China electric vehicle startup "Wei Xiaoli" with Internet genes also relied on the east wind at that time.After ringing the bell, it gradually grew into China’s headCar company.

  This close capital cooperation relationship between China and the United States changed at the end of 2020. Subject to enhanced regulatory review, extremely high inflation and risingIn the past two years, the number of Chinese stocks listed on the US stock market and the scale of fund-raising have dropped sharply.

  The closure of the listing window in the United States has limited the financing of some start-up electric vehicle brands to some extent, but it has not prevented the China automobile industry from completing the alternation of the old and new order. At present, about one car in every three cars sold in China is a car, except for thisExcept, all the other best-selling models are China brands.

  The new force of making cars is no longer the only protagonist in the automobile market. Traditional automobile manufacturers in China have hatched brand-new electric brands one after another, and participated in the competition with the mentality and urgency of start-up companies and the talent structure similar to that of technology companies.

  These new energy sub-brands also hope to win the favor of investors. This can not only ensure that it has sufficient funds to cope with the subsequent market competition, but also reduce the cost burden of the parent company in the transformation of new energy.

  After the financing fever of electric vehicle start-ups peaked in 2021, the Federal Reserve continued to raise interest rates to fight inflation in 2022, and the borrowing cost rose sharply. Wall StreetIssuance, bond financing and corporate merger have all slowed down to almost exhaustion.

  Although the rising cost of capital is also impacting speculative enterprises in other fields, capital-intensive electric vehicle startups have been hit harder.

  The cost of establishing a new automobile manufacturing enterprise is high in the early stage, and it will take several years to make a profit. Investors are willing to pay a premium for potential high returns in the era of hot money, but those days are gone forever.

  Investment bankers, lawyers and investors believe that although there have been signs of recovery this year and the market has gradually rebounded, it is unlikely that the US IPO market will return to the level of 2020 and 2021. Start-ups need to re-adapt to the new investor mentality, that is, pay attention to the potential of start-ups to achieve profitability, rather than the ability to achieve rapid growth.

  Gui Lingfeng, director of Kearney Consulting, told Interface News that the US capital market still has reservations about emerging projects such as China Stock Exchange, including Krypton, and vehicle manufacturers that only provide pure electric vehicles.

  "The layout of Krypton in Europe is not easy, especially in German-speaking areas. The core is to enhance the sense of existence in front of overseas investors as soon as possible. From this perspective, they themselves realize that overseas investors are more conservative about their own business models, products and prospects. "

  Judging from the valuation model, Krypton is still regarded by investors as a technology-based enterprise, not a traditional automobile manufacturer.An industry insider who asked for anonymity pointed out in an interview with Interface News that the current valuation of krypton in the industry is based on 2 to 3 times the sales rate.

  "From the perspective of open market information, the sales rate of 2 to 3 times has actually been placed in the’ first echelon’, and the valuation prospects are more promising." After the extrusion of the high valuation bubble, the marketing rate of "Wei Xiaoli" has also dropped from the high level of more than 20 times in the past to 2 to 4 times.

  In contrast, the median sales-to-sales ratio of auto companies listed in the US stock market is 0.81. Traditional automobile manufacturers Toyota, Honda, Stellantis and Krypton’s parent company all have sales rates below 1 times.

  Market-to-sales ratio (PS) is often used to measure the valuation of unprofitable high-growth start-ups, which refers to how much investors are willing to pay for the company’s revenue of one yuan.

  For the unprofitable extreme krypton and new car-making forces, the core of investors’ evaluation of market value is not the income from car sales, but largely depends on the future software charges with higher marginal benefits, technology output and imaginative autonomous driving market prospects.

  The particularity of Krypton lies in that it is a China electric vehicle brand that is separated from the traditional automobile company and seeks independent listing.Although the capital market prefers completely independent new brands without burdens, relying on it, Krypton will amortize the platform R&D investment and capital expenditure together with other Geely brands. This is an extremely advantageous advantage, or let the polar krypton present.The data is optimistic.

  It is worth noting that Geely Group has the largest number of sub-brands in the world.

  "Investors will look at it rationally, and whether the R&D and supply and procurement costs of extreme krypton can be reflected in the gross profit of the financial report through the scale advantage of Geely Automobile.Statistically. "

  Gui Lingfeng told the interface news, including how exclusive the vast architecture of SEA can be, and the strategic investors.How much support is given to Krypton will affect the final valuation of Krypton.

  If Krypton chooses to postpone its listing for one to two years, it will be more likely to obtain a larger financing amount and valuation.The above-mentioned insiders believe that as the Fed starts to cut interest rates again in the next 1-2 years, it will drive the secondary market to increase its enthusiasm. From the market fundamentals, the volatility of the US stock market declined, inflation eased, and investors began to speculate again.

  Considering its own financial situation and subsequent development, Krypton hopes to seize the market recovery period as soon as possible and rebound with the market trend.In the first half of this year, the net loss of krypton reached 809 million yuan, which continued to expand compared with the loss of 759 million yuan in the same period of last year. From the construction of offline channels to the completion of the cockpit and the short board of intelligent driving, it is necessary to continue to invest money.

  Including from within Geely Group, there is a growing demand for Krypton’s self-financing and independence. Due to the pressure on profitability in the early stage of new energy transformation and the related investment in the start-up business of extremely high-end smart electric vehicles, global rating agenciesandThe credit outlook of Geely Holding Company and Geely Automobile has been adjusted from stable to negative.

  During the quiet period of the capital market, many start-ups were forced to do things that seemed unimaginable two years ago: continue to reduce costs and increase efficiency, with profitability as the core benchmark. Some start-ups that failed to get external financing support in time, with the passage of time, their cash reserves are decreasing day by day, and eventually they will go bankrupt or be acquired.

  Compared with the competition for customers, automobile manufacturing is more a competition for capital, especially in the initial stage.Compared with other traditional automobile companies’ sub-brands, Krypton is one of the few companies that have the mature conditions for listing.

  At present, Krypton has initially taken shape. Last year, the annual sales volume of 70,000 single-model vehicles was enough to tell the next story to the capital market. the year of 2020At the time of listing, the annual delivery volume was 32,600 vehicles.

  Another factor that is easily overlooked is that Geely Automobile, the parent company, may be the most adept at capital operation in China, and its experience in dealing with foreign investment institutions for many years has laid the foundation for the listing of US stocks today. Krypton considered Hong Kong as the first listing place, but finally chose new york, which also reflected its confidence and ambition-hoping to get a higher valuation in the world’s largest capital market.

  In 2010, Geely Automobile succeeded fromThe acquisition of Volvo in the hands staged a classic of "snake swallowing elephant" in the history of automobiles.The case also made Geely Automobile go to the world. After that, the investment portfolio of Li Shufu, chairman of Geely Holding Group, also includes a part of the equity of aston martin, a sports car brand, and a dominant interest in electric vehicle start-up brands such as Polar Star and Lotus Technology.

  Before the successful listing of Krypton, Li Shufu had been listed for several subsidiaries in the past two years. Volvo in Stockholm, Sweden in 2021The exchange made a public offering, followed by Polar Star and Yijiatong. Lotus Technology also reported this year that it will be listed on the US stock market through SPAC.

  The investment institutions involved in the above-mentioned listing actions are very likely to appear in the extremely kryptonian investor list. Thanks to the close contact between the parent company and global investment institutions, Krypton at least does not need to introduce where he comes from when negotiating with foreign investors.

  Some people commented to the interface news that Geely Automobile will not make an uncertain listing plan. Except for the listing of ants in 2021, Geely Automobile withdrew its listing in science and technology innovation board, and all other listing targets were successfully achieved.

  Investors’ concern about Krypton is how to achieve the goal of selling 650,000 vehicles in 2025 while ensuring their independence.In investment, platform sharing andandIn terms of the supply of scarce parts, there will inevitably be conflicts of interest between Krypton and other high-end electric vehicle brands under Geely.

  Extreme Krypton, Volvo, Polar Star, Lotus Technology and Geely andThe jointly launched Extreme Vietnam is striving for the same customers, and some of the models they developed are based on the common vast SEA architecture, and even some models are produced in parallel.

  The Wall Street Journal quoted investor analysis as saying that Geely Automobile’s listing of its subsidiary, rather than the holding company itself, may make the governance challenge of brand competition more difficult: any hint that Li Shufu prefers a subsidiary is a minority.Will be very important for everyone.

300,000-400,000 yuan to buy medium and large SUVs, extended range and fuel, who do you choose?

  Nowadays, the price of new energy vehicles is the same as that of fuel vehicles, and it is inevitable that new energy will grab the share of fuel vehicles. Take the medium-sized and large SUV with a budget of 300,000-400,000 yuan. Do you want to increase the program, or the pure fuel version of Ford? Both cars have a body exceeding 5 meters, and the whole department has a 6-seat design. Explorers have 6 seats and 7 seats to choose from. The guide prices of M7 and 2023 explorers are 319,800-379,800 yuan and 309,800-379,800 yuan respectively.

300,000-400,000 yuan to buy medium and large SUVs, extended range and fuel, who do you choose?

  From the performance point of view, the zero-acceleration of Explorer’s rear-wheel drive and Wenjie’s M7 rear-wheel drive is 7.6 seconds and 7.8 seconds respectively, and only the lowest equipped models of the two cars are rear-wheel drive designs, and the prices are 309,800 yuan and 319,800 yuan respectively. In terms of four-wheel drive models, the four-wheel drive acceleration of Explorer and Quest M7 is 7.8 seconds and 4.8 seconds respectively, and the guide prices are 329,800-379,800 yuan and 339,800-379,800 yuan respectively, and the prices are close.

  Explorers are all equipped with a 2.3T turbocharged engine and a matched 10AT transmission, with an output of 276 HP and 425 N.. Rice, just add 92# gasoline. The 1.5T four-cylinder engine on the M7 is only used for power generation and does not directly drive the vehicle, but 95# gasoline needs to be added. The M7 rear drive is equipped with 200 kW and 360 N.. Rice motor; Like the rear motor of the four-wheel drive model, the power of the front motor is 130 kW and 300 N. Rice.

  M7 plus 95# gasoline, but the fuel consumption is lower than that of Explorer, and the front suspension of Explorer is better.

  Explorers refuel for a few minutes, but the battery life of M7 rear drive and four-wheel drive pure electric WLTC is 150 km and 135 km, and it takes 30 minutes for slow charging and 5 hours for fast charging. People who buy extended-range cars generally don’t want to wait for a slow charge, unless they have a private charge at home, which is mainly to refuel and generate electricity. The fuel consumption of M7′ s rear drive and four-wheel drive is 6.85L and 7.45L respectively, while the combined fuel consumption of Explorer’s rear drive and four-wheel drive is 9.07L and 10.08L, and the actual fuel consumption may be slightly higher than this fuel consumption.

  In terms of energy consumption, at the same price, even with refueling, the fuel consumption of the boundary M7 is definitely lower than that of the explorer, and the use cost of the boundary M7 will be lower than that of the explorer. If you drive for a short distance and charge conveniently, the use cost under charging is lower. Looking at the driving quality, Explorer’s front suspension is a double-ball-joint spring strut suspension, while Wenjie M7 is an ordinary McPherson independent suspension, and both rear suspensions are multi-link independent suspensions.

  The key point is the difference of the front suspension. As the best family car controlled by BMW, BMW 3 Series also adopts the double-ball joint spring shock absorption strut suspension, which makes the control more accurate and flexible. However, there is a 40-degree ternary lithium battery on the chassis of the car body, which makes the weight of the chassis heavier. After the center of gravity is lowered, the driving quality of the car body will not be weak.

  In terms of configuration, the asking M7 is more abundant than the explorer, but it is not much at similar prices. Take the entry-level rear-drive model as an example, the asking M7 is 10,000 yuan more expensive, which also includes door-opening warning, 360 panoramic image, full-speed adaptive cruise, automatic parking, HUD head-up display, wireless charging function of front-row mobile phones, heating, ventilation and massage functions of the first and second rows of seats, and 12 audio and negative ion generators. However, regarding the central control screen, the explorer’s 27-inch screen is larger than the 15.6-inch screen of the world M7, and both the explorer and the world M7 have L2-level driving assistance capabilities.

  Write it at the end

  The budget of 300,000-400,000 yuan is to buy medium and large SUVs, and the explorers provide 6 and 7 seats to choose from, while only 6 seats are available to ask for the M7. At similar prices, the configuration of the M7 is slightly richer than that of the explorers, while the M7 is exempt from purchase tax, and thanks to Huawei’s technical blessing, its popularity is higher than that of the explorers. Judging from the use cost, the fuel consumption cost of the M7 is definitely lower, and both cars can be poetic and far away. The short-distance M7 can also reduce fuel consumption by pure electric driving. Although the space of the boundary M7 is slightly smaller than that of the explorer and the central control panel is not as large as that of the explorer, at a similar price, many people may choose the boundary M7 for the sake of green cards and lower fuel consumption.

Huawei P70 King Return! In addition to rolling images, it is also equipped with a new Kirin 9010 chip.

It is understood that Kirin 9010 is an upgraded version of Kirin 9000S, and its internal name is tentatively "Kirin 9010". Although the specific parameters of Kirin 9010 have not been announced yet, according to the previous rumors and naming rules of Kirin, we can infer that Kirin 9010 may have been optimized and adjusted on the basis of Kirin 9000S, and the manufacturing process may be changed, focusing on optimizing performance and power consumption. Huawei’s hyper-threading technology will continue to be used.

According to netizens, the measured running score of Kirin 9010 chip has reached the level of 8 Gen2 in Snapdragon. Some people speculate that the chip is a 3nm process and the foundry is TSMC, but it should be false news in the current situation of Huawei. Moreover, Xiao Bian also found that rumors about Kirin 9010 chip had appeared as early as 2021, and it is said that the manufacturing process was 3nm, which means that several bans in the United States disrupted Huawei’s original rhythm when mass production was about to begin, so it was necessary to switch to Qualcomm’s 4G chip.

Since the launch of Kirin 9000, every generation of flagship new products after Huawei will always be speculated whether it will go to Kirin 9010. This is also a kind of expectation for Huawei. It is always thought that it can come up with stronger products to surprise everyone in the sanctions. It may not be possible before, but after watching the performance of Mate 60 this year, everyone thinks that Kirin 9010 will have a chance on Huawei P70.

If it is as stated in the news, Huawei P70 will officially return with Kirin 9010 chip, indicating that Huawei has once again created a miracle. In addition, the main camera of Huawei P70 will use Sony IMX989 1-inch outsole sensor. The overall lens layout is not much different from that of the previous generation P60, but the lens deco has changed from "long strip" to "approximate square", and it is still designed for three lenses. The largest main camera is located in the middle, the telephoto and wide angle are distributed on both sides of the main camera, and the flash is on the far left.

As the latest masterpiece of Huawei’s flagship mobile phone series, P70 series will also usher in a major breakthrough and promotion in hardware configuration, video experience and localization of supply chain. All kinds of revelations alone have been able to make consumers blind, which also reflects Huawei’s influence and competitiveness. We also have reason to believe that Huawei will once again boost the overall smartphone sales in China with P70 series.

Users can easily unlock and lock the vehicle through facial recognition, and the display content on the B-pillar screen can also be directly related to the scene mode, which can easily and quickly complete the intelligent interaction inside and outside the vehicle. Later, more personalized functions can be created through OTA.

  In order to better meet the needs of compact users, Krypton X starts from the space pain point of target customers, breaks the traditional bondage and realizes space super-transformation. According to the survey, the utilization rate of the rear row space of the original compact model on the market is less than 11%. Krypton X has transformed the rear middle seat used at low frequency to create the first four-seat model in the compact luxury market. Through electric adjustment, the rear row seat can be folded up with one button, and the fixed central armrest has also been transformed into an imaginative and intelligent island, so that the limited space can be completely opened and the space flexibility can be further improved.


  Zero-speed 3.7s, 5.7L large-capacity embedded refrigerator, the first 14.6-inch electric sliding smart screen and 4D cloud zero-gravity seat of the same class, and nearly 100,000 delivered batteries with zero fire & HELIP; … The new luxury of Krypton X debuted, creating a new market standard with the highest standard of Krypton safety in the industry and becoming a representative model leading the compact luxury car market.
