TCAC President and Tian Hongji

  Toshiba Air Conditioning’s new Hangzhou base was officially launched in June last year. This base integrates R & D and production. It is a high-efficiency and high-quality smart factory. In the future, it will greatly enhance the speed of Product Research & Development and commodity competitiveness in the Chinese market.

  In order to better meet the expanding Chinese market demand, TCAC has strengthened the function and positioning of "local production, local sales", said TCAC president and Tian Hongji.

  For the Chinese market, especially the home multi-connection market, in the face of increasingly fierce competition, Wada Hongji feels that TCAC has achieved significant growth with the support of Toshiba Carrier Air Conditioning Sales (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.’s strong sales team. Under the strong growth trend, Toshiba Air Conditioning Headquarters also believes that the Chinese market is a huge market with sustainable growth potential. Wada Hongji said: TCAC’s R & D and manufacturing strength can be further improved, thanks to the headquarters to increase investment, so that the new base can play an important role in accelerating product development and expanding production capacity supply. He believes that the growth of TCAC will be even stronger in the future.

  Since TCAC is established in China, it must be adapted to local conditions. Wada Hiroji emphasizes: Only by grasping the real needs of customers can it be called local conditions. Establishing a base in China allows you to feel the needs of customers firsthand, which is the biggest advantage. In addition, in terms of production, under the recognition of the quality management system, the adoption of local Chinese parts that meet the requirements will be further promoted.

  TCAC is of milestone significance, and Wada is full of confidence in Toshiba air conditioners in the future: TCAC will create unique products and create Toshiba air conditioners "Hangzhou brand" through intelligent manufacturing.

Gu Jieshengmei, General Manager of TCAC Design Center

  TCAC adopts the same production management system and quality inspection and testing standards as the parent company’s Fuji factory in Japan to ensure that the product quality is consistent with the original imported products, and at the same time of technological innovation, it has developed energy-saving products that meet the goal of carbon neutrality, making positive contributions to China’s environmental protection cause.

  Japanese craftsmanship is widely known, but whether domestic production will be different from local production in Japan will inevitably become a concern for the public. Katsumi Ku, general manager of TCAC Design Center, said: Usually, in the product development stage, it is necessary to complete important nodes such as technical review, product safety evaluation, and reliability evaluation with senior technical experts in Japan, and then TCAC strengthens the detailed design and sells it to the Chinese market. The products produced in China not only have the same technical level as those produced in Japan, but in the new base, we also have high-end testing equipment, which can help us develop new products independently. TCAC can fully produce products that can make customers feel at ease, safe, and satisfied.

  Regarding the high-end laboratories set up by TCAC, Gu Jieshengmei said that by effectively using these laboratories, we can provide customers with high-quality products that can effectively meet their diverse needs with heat pump technology as the core, contribute to the protection of society and even the earth’s environment, develop energy-saving products that meet the goal of carbon neutrality, and provide a series of products such as "cold and warm feng shui" to meet market demand. The construction of TCAC’s high-end laboratories plays an important and positive role in the development of technological innovation.

  In addition, a good factory needs to have more high-end technical talents. TCAC has truly stimulated the potential of technical talents and helped technical employees to further grow. Gu Jieshengmei said: In the product development stage, in order to better help domestic technical personnel to improve their own level, TCAC provides the opportunity to go to the Japanese technical department for training and study. In the development stage, designing new products makes technical personnel constantly face challenges in their work, which can stimulate the potential of technical personnel, continuously consolidate the technical foundation, gain technical experience, and achieve personal growth.

  TCAC general manager Masato Okuda: cell production, artificial intelligence intervention, standardized operations, process quality control and upgrading

Masato Okuda, General Manager of TCAC

  Every employee on the TCAC production line is not only the "manufacturer" of the product, but also the person responsible for the quality of the product. In addition, with the support of IT tools, the process quality control will be upgraded again.

  Masato Okuda, general manager of TCAC, said in an interview: The traditional assembly line production method cannot give full play to the personal ability of the operator, especially the slow work pace of the newcomer will affect the overall production progress. Cell production can give full play to personal ability, shorten the production cycle and increase production capacity. Moreover, customers can easily switch production models when they temporarily request expedited shipments, which has the advantage of being able to produce various models at the same time.

  The process quality control of products is an important link in the production of Toshiba air conditioners. Masato Okuda believes that TCAC does a good job in process quality control, and the following links are required: In the main assembly process, a production line inspector is equipped to conduct a full inspection. In order to prevent ingredient errors, some processes are checked by QR code and image recognition technology. When poor quality occurs in the process, countermeasures to prevent recurrence should be implemented immediately, and regular quality inspections should be carried out to determine whether to continue to implement the countermeasures. In addition, product quality traceability should be strengthened through the process history sheet, as well as the data collected by the tablet computers and test devices installed at each assembly station.

  TCAC has also undergone great changes after artificial intelligence intervention. Okuda Masato concluded: Before the AGV automatic handling robot was put into use, there were more than 40 material truck transporters in the assembly area of the indoor machine alone, walking tens of thousands of steps every day. There have also been cases where people wait for materials due to untimely delivery of materials by transporters. By introducing AGV, we removed manual handling and eliminated the loss of man-hours for people and other materials.

  The production method in the intelligent mode has improved production efficiency and also increased the requirements for TCAC employees. Masato Okuda said: With the increase in production, new operators have also increased. In addition to continuing to implement basic requirements such as safety KYT, 5S, and TPM, operators are also required to be proficient in processes and standardize operations as soon as possible. Proficiency in processes and standardized operations does not depend solely on the operators themselves, but can also be supported by tools such as IT.

  In the future, the quality control of the TCAC process will be upgraded again. Okuda Masato requires that while strengthening the traceability management of the manufacturing process, the loss and waste in the process should also be strengthened. On the premise of "people can make mistakes" to avoid operational mistakes, and improve the system that allows operators to realize mistakes.

  Hiroyuki Takeuchi, the person in charge of TCAC quality: Toshiba air conditioners have strong hard power, and all products have "high quality"

Hiroyuki Takeuchi, TCAC Quality Manager

  TCAC has always strictly controlled the production management standards, earnestly fulfilled the user’s quality requirements for the product, and truly achieved "even after the product warranty period, it can be used with confidence for a long time without failure".

  For air conditioners, the most lethal quality defect is "refrigerant leakage". TCAC will conduct welding skills training for welding operators, set up a welding operation judge system, etc., and strive to maintain a high level of skills for welding operators. Takeuchi Hiroyuki, the responsible person for TCAC quality supervision, said: In order to prevent "refrigerant leakage", in the manufacturing line, helium detection and refrigerant sniffer will be used for leakage detection. In addition, for outdoor units, after the product is offline, after a certain period of standing time, it will be confirmed again whether the refrigerant is leaking. Through these inspections and confirmations, the problem of refrigerant leakage in the production process of the product can be solved.

  Takeuchi Hiroyuki emphasized: TCAC’s development quality evaluation during new product development and manufacturing quality management during product production basically use the same management benchmarks as in Japan. And, according to the unique situation of the Chinese market, we will more strictly control the evaluation management benchmarks. By strictly controlling the quality and then putting it into production, we can ensure that the product quality is consistent with that of Japan, and strive to solve customers’ quality concerns about domestic production.

  Users feel good is a really good product. Takeuchi Hiroyuki believes that customers will only choose to buy if they recognize the quality of our products. And emphasized the quality requirements of Toshiba air conditioning products: even after the product warranty period, it can be used with confidence for a long time without failure. Only in this way can we proudly say that the characteristics of Toshiba air conditioners are high-quality across the board.

  Now that Toshiba air conditioners are developing rapidly in China, it is natural that countless Toshiba fans are looking forward to new products and new breakthroughs. Hiroyuki Takeuchi said: The new base has high-tech testing equipment to promote product development. These equipment can support TCAC’s independent product development work, providing users with more powerful and more in line with social needs. Of course, these new products will also be "high-quality" products.

  This in-depth interview with Toshiba Air Conditioning China Smart Factory allowed everyone to better understand Toshiba Air Conditioning from the four aspects of the Chinese market, technological innovation, process quality control, and product quality. I believe that in the future, Toshiba Air Conditioning will rely on high-quality and high-quality cutting-edge technology products to create Toshiba Air Conditioning with Chinese characteristics in the Chinese market. With the support of advanced technology and technology, Toshiba Air Conditioning, which has the ability to control the hard core process quality, will continue to win public praise. Good product users have the final say. Toshiba Air Conditioning, mission must be achieved!

Solving the problem of power battery recycling in the world

  With the rapid development of electric vehicles, a large number of power batteries began to retire. How to recycle these batteries to reduce environmental pollution has become an urgent problem facing all countries. At the same time, with the increasing shortage of raw materials such as metals needed to produce power batteries, many large automobile manufacturers and start-ups are also paying close attention to the layout, hoping that the recycling of power batteries can become an effective way to cope with the supply shortage, and all parties hope that related industries can accelerate their development.

  The capacity of power batteries has expanded rapidly.

  With the rapid growth of electric vehicle sales and the increasing pressure on automobile manufacturers to change from fuel vehicles to electric vehicles, many countries and regions around the world are accelerating the layout of power battery production capacity.

  At present, the United States is planning to convert most American-made cars into electric vehicles by 2030, and completely eliminate fuel vehicles by 2040. According to a report by the European environmental protection group Transport and Environment Organization, if the EU introduces stricter greenhouse gas emission regulation policies and provides sufficient support for the construction of charging piles, all new car sales in Europe will be converted into electric vehicles by 2035.

  According to the data of MarketsandMarkets, the demand for lithium batteries has increased rapidly in the past five years. In 2025, the related market size is expected to increase from 44.2 billion US dollars in 2020 to 94.4 billion US dollars, and the development of electric vehicles will be the main driving force.

  European governments are now stepping up efforts to support the development of power battery projects to ensure that they can still maintain their dominant position in the field of automobile manufacturing in the future. According to Agence France-Presse, according to the data of the Transportation and Environment Organization, Europe is currently planning to build 38 new super battery factories, with an annual production capacity of 1,000 GWh and an investment of 40 billion euros (about 48 billion US dollars). The planned production capacity will be realized from 2029 to 2030.

  Many large automobile manufacturers are also increasing their investment in power batteries. According to Agence France-Presse, Volkswagen has recently invested 2.3 billion euros in Swedish startup Northvolt, and plans to build five other power battery factories. The new automobile giant Stratis is currently building two power battery factories. Tesla, an American electric vehicle manufacturer, also plans to build a new power battery super factory in Berlin. It is estimated that the production capacity will reach 250 GWh before 2030.

  The supply of raw materials may be short.

  A large number of power battery factories will put forward higher requirements for the supply of raw materials such as metals, and automobile manufacturers must try their best to ensure the supply of raw materials necessary for the production of batteries. It is understood that power batteries account for most of the cost of electric vehicles, while major metals such as lithium, nickel and cobalt account for most of the cost of power batteries. The European Commission predicts that by 2030, the demand for lithium will increase by 18% and the demand for cobalt will increase fivefold.

  Considering the sharp increase in demand, some international organizations have been warning that related mineral raw materials will face shortages in the future. The International Energy Agency said recently that governments need to ensure the supply of key mineral raw materials needed for clean energy technology, otherwise they may face supply bottlenecks and damage the development of electric vehicles, wind power generation and other projects. According to the report of the International Energy Agency, clean energy requires many kinds of raw materials, from lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese and graphite to rare earth elements for the production of electric vehicle engines and wind turbines, and each mineral raw material faces different problems. According to the International Energy Agency, in general, the demand for key mineral raw materials in the energy sector will increase sixfold before 2040, and the increasing global response to climate change is increasingly disproportionate to the supply of key mineral raw materials.

  The report of the International Energy Agency suggests that national policy makers should take actions to ensure the stable supply of key mineral raw materials and set long-term emission reduction targets. The agency also suggested that governments should promote the development of new technologies and invest more in recycling areas to alleviate the main supply pressure.

  The White House recently made it clear that we must work with our allies to ensure the supply of raw materials such as metals needed for the production of electric vehicles, and environmental protection and other factors should also be taken into account when dealing with them at home. According to Reuters, relevant measures include expanding investment in electric vehicle metal projects through the United States International Development Finance Corporation and taking new measures to support the supply from battery recycling. The Biden administration will also set up a working group to determine where minerals used in power batteries can be produced and processed. The US Department of Energy has been approved to invest $17 billion through the "Advanced Technology Vehicle Production Loan Project" to support related projects, which will focus on battery manufacturer financing, key mineral recovery and treatment. According to the report, ensuring the supply of raw materials for power batteries such as copper and lithium is one of the main obstacles that Biden’s huge electric vehicle development plan is currently encountering. At present, mining projects in the United States are facing extensive regulatory obstacles and environmental resistance.

  Maros Shevcovic, Vice President of the European Commission, said in March that Europe should strive to achieve strategic independence in the production of power batteries, hoping that Europe can achieve self-sufficiency by 2025. According to Agence France-Presse, a new generation of power battery technology is being developed in Europe, hoping to reduce the dependence on lithium-ion battery technology. In January this year, the European Commission has invested 2.9 billion euros to support related research and development. Europe also hopes to build a more environmentally friendly battery factory, and EU officials are currently formulating relevant standards to regulate the extraction of battery raw materials and how to recycle used batteries.

  However, Oliver Montick, an analyst at Fitch Consulting, believes that Europe may not establish a "complete closed-loop supply chain covering the extraction, refining, processing and production of most battery raw materials in Europe" until 2040. Montick said that although Germany and the Czech Republic have sustainable lithium metal reserves, the EU should still obtain supplies from reliable partners to ensure supply security.

  Battery recycling needs to be accelerated.

  Power battery is considered to be one of the key factors that determine the mileage and performance of electric vehicles. However, with the increase of service life, its performance will obviously decline, the required charging time will be extended and the mileage will be shortened. Some insiders said that the recommended service life of power batteries is generally 5 to 10 years. As a large number of electric vehicles have been put into use, the number of power batteries that need to be replaced will soar rapidly in the near future, and the demand for environmental protection and resource reuse will increase rapidly.

  Some experts said that some power batteries that can still be used can be used in other scenes with reduced requirements, such as energy storage systems (ESS). For power batteries that can’t be used any more, we can consider recycling them and reuse the resources such as metal elements. At present, the metals such as lithium, cobalt and nickel needed for mining and processing electric vehicles often need to span several continents, and the transportation distance often exceeds 2,000 kilometers. Therefore, recycling and utilizing the raw materials in waste batteries is a more efficient and sustainable way, which can effectively reduce the burden in the fields of mining new mines, mining and processing.

  Automobile and battery manufacturers and some start-ups have been exploring various ways to deal with waste power batteries, and some new industries and business models are taking shape.

  According to CNBC, Straubel, former CTO of Tesla, founded Redwood Materials Company in 2017, which focuses on the disposal of electronic waste, and its business includes recycling used batteries, and then providing raw materials extracted from them to automobile manufacturers and battery manufacturers. The company’s first recycling plant in Nevada, USA, has started operation, which can recycle 95% of nickel, cobalt, aluminum and graphite, and more than 80% of lithium in used batteries. Straubel said that in the face of the rapid growth of demand for power batteries, the current supply of raw materials will be difficult to meet the demand, and it is necessary to speed up the investment in "top areas of the food chain", such as the development and recycling of raw materials, and recycling is a very efficient way. On the issue of profitability, Straubel said that the company is still in the initial stage of development, and it still needs to consume a lot of capital to invest in equipment and technology, but in the long run, with the continuous improvement of technology and scale, the company’s business will achieve considerable profits.

  According to media reports, Ultium Cells, a joint venture between LG Energy Solutions and General Motors, will cooperate with Li-Cycle, a battery recycling company, to recycle batteries from this year. Li-Cycle said that its recycling technology can achieve 80% to 100% recycling of all materials in lithium-ion batteries.

  According to Yonhap News Agency, South Korean automaker Kia Motors and its battery supplier SK Innovation will jointly develop a power battery recycling project. It is reported that SK Innovation provides lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles such as EV6 of Kia Motors. As early as March, 2020, the two companies have begun to cooperate in the utilization of waste power batteries, and said that they will cooperate in the treatment and reuse of waste power batteries through energy storage systems, or recycle the metals in waste power batteries, which will help reduce production costs. SK Innovation also said that in addition to the potential economic benefits, recycling waste power batteries can also reduce the number of buried waste batteries, thus reducing the pollution of soil and groundwater.

  The market related to raw material recycling in power batteries is expected to usher in rapid growth in the next few years. According to CNBC, data show that the global lithium recycling market will increase from $1.5 billion in 2019 to $18.1 billion in 2030.

  Some experts said that if the power battery recycling industry wants to accelerate its development, it needs closer cooperation between the electric vehicle industry and the government to help collect batteries with different models and performances, accelerate relevant scientific research projects, formulate relevant standards, simplify the recycling and utilization procedures of used batteries, and reverse the current situation of low recycling rate of used batteries at an early date.

  Some governments are also supporting related innovation activities in various forms. According to Yonhap News Agency, the South Korean government is now partially relaxing the supervision of used batteries by way of "supervision sandbox", so as to allow automobile manufacturers and battery manufacturers to use these batteries to innovate products, services, marketing and business models. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea plans to invest 1.3 billion won (about 1.5 million US dollars) before 2024 to conduct experiments on the utilization of used batteries, such as renewable energy projects.

  Jin Shizhen, a researcher at the Korea Automobile Technology Association, said that with the accelerated popularization of electric vehicles, a large number of power batteries will be retired in South Korea from 2026, and by 2030, about 100,000 electric vehicles will need to be replaced. Jin Shiyi said that in order to accelerate the development of the battery recycling industry, it is necessary to speed up the establishment of standards such as waste battery collection, speed up the research and development of related processing technologies, and refine the requirements for battery quality and performance.

Geely Automobile’s net profit will shrink by 30% in 2020, and its net cash flow from operating activities will plummet by 87%.

On March 23rd, Geely Automobile Holdings Limited released its 2020 financial report. Although some sectors performed brilliantly, Geely Automobile’s revenue and net profit declined in 2020 compared with 2019, which the company attributed to the COVID-19 epidemic.

In 2020, Geely Automobile achieved revenue of 92.1 billion RMB, down 5.4% year-on-year. Net profit was 5.57 billion yuan, down 32% year-on-year, compared with 8.26 billion yuan in the same period last year. The profit attributable to shareholders was RMB 5.53 billion, and the ending cash balance was RMB 19 billion.

After the results were announced, the market reacted strongly. In the afternoon, Hong Kong stock Geely Automobile plunged in a straight line, with a drop of over 7%.

In 2020, the cumulative sales volume of Geely Automobile exceeded 1.32 million, ranking first in the sales volume of China brand passenger cars for four consecutive years. However, this figure is 3% lower than that in 2019.

Among them, the annual cumulative sales volume of high-end brand Lexus reached 175,000 units, up about 37% year-on-year.

In terms of profit structure, its joint venture company contributed 880 million profits (including 580 million yuan from Jizhi Financial Company and 260 million from Link), accounting for about 15.6% of the net profit; Royalty income is 570 million yuan, accounting for about 10.2% of net profit.

In 2020, Geely Automobile accelerated the payment to its suppliers to alleviate the impact of production interruption caused by the epidemic, which also led to a significant decrease in the net cash inflow from its operating activities.By the end of 2020, the net cash flow from operating activities of Geely Automobile decreased by 87% year-on-year to 1.6 billion yuan.

In order to revive its financial resources, in May 2020, Geely raised HK$ 6.48 billion by placing 600 million new shares to institutional investors.

With the help of the proceeds from the placement, the total cash level of Geely Automobile (bank balance and cash+pledged bank deposits) will remain at about 19 billion yuan at the end of 2020.

In the second half of the year, the negative impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on Geely Automobile decreased.

In contrast to the bleak sales in the first half of 2020, in the second half of 2020, Geely Automobile’s sales increased by 49%, revenue increased by 50% and net profit increased by 40%.

In overseas markets, despite the restrictions of the COVID-19 epidemic, Geely Automobile’s "sea layout" is still accelerating.

In 2020, Geely Automobile sold nearly 273,000 overseas vehicles, up 25% year-on-year, covering nearly 30 countries. Among them, Link’s European offline experience store opened; In the Southeast Asian market, the annual sales volume of Proton Automobile under Geely reached 109,000 vehicles, and the export increased by 49.8%.

In terms of research and development, Geely Automobile has invested 4.8 billion yuan in 2020.In 2021, Geely’s R&D investment will continue to increase to cope with the wave of smart electric vehicles.

In 2020, in order to optimize the product structure, under the poor environment, Geely Automobile successively launched new models such as ICON, Haoyue, Xingrui, LECK 05 and LECK 06.

However, since mid-2019, the higher discounts and concessions offered by Geely to its dealers offset the positive impact brought by the continuous improvement of its product portfolio, making the average ex-factory sales price of Geely in 2020 similar to that of the same period last year.

If the high-end brand Lexus sold by its 50% equity joint venture company is taken into account, the average ex-factory sales price of Geely Automobile increased slightly year-on-year.

This also shows that the current profit pressure of new car sales in the automobile industry is great, and enterprises should pay more attention to after-sales service and other value-added businesses.

In order to continue to increase the market share, in 2021, Geely Automobile set the sales target at 1.53 million vehicles, up 16% year-on-year.

In order to step into the era of "4.0 comprehensive architecture system" faster, Geely Automobile announced that it had entered into a framework agreement with Geely Holding and established a joint venture company.

On March 23rd, Krypton Company was established, and it is planned that Geely Automobile and Geely Holding will jointly contribute 2 billion yuan. Among them, Geely Automobile holds 51% and Geely Holding Group holds 49%.

Li Shufu became the chairman of the company, and An Conghui became the CEO of the company.

Extreme Krypton Company will increase its R&D investment in the field of new four modernizations, and build the full-stack self-research capability of intelligent software and hardware. It will integrate various assets and technologies, including but not limited to electric vehicle technology, the right to use the vast intelligent evolutionary experience architecture (SEA), brand authorization, three power technologies, supply chain system construction and user ecological construction.

The joint venture company will become a subsidiary of Geely Automobile, and its financial performance will be consolidated with Geely Automobile.

As early as last September, the Shanghai Stock Exchange disclosed that Geely Automobile had an IPO meeting in science and technology innovation board. However, Geely has made no substantial progress in the process of officially landing in science and technology innovation board.

China’s stock market regulator questioned whether the company was high-tech enough, Lianhe Zaobao quoted people familiar with the matter as saying.

In this regard, Yang Xueliang, vice president of Geely Holding, said that there is no further information to provide. According to the information disclosure standard of the listing process, everything is subject to the approval of the regulatory authorities.

  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.

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

  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.

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

  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.

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

  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.
