    Re: $30,000 Porsche Xiaomi electric car,do you like it?

    Xiaomi announced that it has independently developed the "9100t super large die-casting cluster" and the die-casting alloy material "Titan Alloy", which makes Xiaomi the only automobile manufacturer in the world (and Tesla) and the only one in China to independently develop large-scale die-casting equipment and die-casting materials at the same time. In terms of investment in large-scale die-casting equipment, Millet Group and Gaorong Capital jointly invested in Haitian Zhisheng Metal Forming Equipment Co., Ltd. in Ningbo Free Trade Zone in January 2023, which can produce a full range of cold chamber die-casting machines with clamping force of 180T-8800T.And has an annual production capacity of 4000 die-casting machines. The current price reduction competition is very fierce, although millet SU7 has some unique characteristics, but overall, compared with other brands, the homogeneity level of millet cars is also quite high. As a car model, its target customer group is not as large as SUV model. It would be much better if it was listed five years earlier. It has been a failure to hit the high-end mobile phone market, as long as the reason is that the millet 11 mobile phone uses Samsung's Fire Dragon 888 CPU and OEM.As a result, the CPU was burned and fell off, and the mobile phone was seriously heated. From 2021 to December, the Mi 12 family is equipped with the Samsung version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1, which generates serious heat and loses 30% of the CPU performance. In 2015, Xiaomi supply chain executives offended Samsung and directly announced that AMOLED screens were cut off from Xiaomi. Lei Jun went to Samsung four times to apologize. He drank up five bottles of red wine at dinner, but the other party promised to resume supply two years later. In order to save costs in the production of CPUs,
    So I didn't go to TSMC for OEM, and I was killed by Samsung along the way. The AMD CPU continues to surpass intel, relying on TSMC's sophisticated technology and quality assurance. Apple had hoped to have multiple manufacturers of 5.g network baseband chips, so it chose to cooperate with Intel, which resulted in a lot of heat and slow speed, and finally had to give up.

    It is more difficult to produce mobile phones and cars in this way.It is so difficult to produce mobile phones, and it is even more difficult to produce cars.
    A strong supply chain is required.A strong supply chain is required, with 2 to 5 suppliers for each component.A strong supply chain is needed, and 2 to 5 suppliers are needed for each part to prevent participants from maliciously raising prices and offering 2 to 5 times the price.

    Like the Redmi mobile phone, it will use the Tianma screen made in China, as well as CSOT.The color of Tianma mobile phone display screen is white, which is very harmful to the eyes..CSOT has basically reached the level of Samsung display.

    It used to be a bike-sharing program in China, with one bike per 100 people. You can find the bike directly from anywhere and park it at the target address.
    Why does it cost $60,000 to buy a car? If you only need to pay a dollar a day, you can find a shared electric car on any street, he is fully charged. But bike-sharing hampers taxi profits. At the same time, because it is through online platforms, there is no way to provide tax revenue to the government of every street in every city.
    Some bikes were not parked within the prescribed limits and ended up being forcibly confiscated by city administrators, but the bike-sharing units did not pay the fines. Just like the rivers in Japan, there are often plenty of bikes to salvage.
    Originally, it was the most convenient mobile app to order takeout, but the delivery platform has to charge about 30% of the commission, and the original meal only needs 30 US dollars now becomes 50 US dollars. A bunch of investors in shared bicycles took hundreds of billions of dollars after making the bubble big in order to circle money and then ran away. A bunch of people went public to make money, made the bubble bigger, took hundreds of billions, and then ran away

    Once China. Around 2000, it cost about $500 to buy a Samsung contraband phone. But our income is only 100 dollars a month.
    The price of cars is getting cheaper and cheaper, and each family will have 2 to 3 cars.
    It may take an average of 8 years to replace a car.
    The United States uses 110 volts and China uses 220 volts.There is also 1 million volts of UHV transmission. It can save a lot of costs.
    Just like a barrel of 20 kg mineral water costs $2, if tap water is installed, 1000 kilograms costs only $0.7.Tap water, like natural gas, is directly connected by pipelines, and transportation costs can be reduced by several times or even hundreds of times.

    In China, near the world's highest Mount Qomolangma, Xinjiang Inner Mongolia region, they mainly rely on cattle and sheep to survive, there are no trees, only a few months a year, there are a small number of low grass, many farmers they use the grass machine to automatically harvest and bind.
    There are now automatic tree-cutting machines in the United States, like an excavator. He can cut down a tree in 30 seconds and automatically cut it to a specified length.
    That, too, can automatically remove those extra branches, rocketing from the ground to the head of the branch in just ten seconds.
    The corn does not grow old, but when it turns yellow, it is automatically harvested by a machine and turned into feed, just like the sweet corn fruit we eat.
    Human food, animal feed, gasoline, coal, and our electricity all come from solar energy.
    Most of China is mountainous, but we have few ways to use it now. In order to cheat the state subsidies, many governments cut down all the trees on the mountains and cover them with solar energy. In fact, the cost may not be recovered for 20 years. If a machine were invented that could automatically harvest those trees in the mountains, just like a lawn mower. It's harvested every three meters and rotated every three years. Using these small trees for thermal power generation is the best way to solve the energy crisis.

    Many high-end office buildings in China, such as Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong.It costs a lot to order takeout. And it takes a long time.If the current express transportation, as well as your lunch and dinner can be delivered by UAV power, it will save a lot of costs and time.

    The development of UAVs will lead to more problems. In case he carries a bomb, who can deal with it?
    In the vast Chinese region. Basically, it only costs $1.50 to $3 to send some items.Especially online shopping is becoming more and more developed. But there are more and more cars on the street. Traffic is getting more and more congested. The only solution may be drones.
    In Japan, the wife makes the lunch box at home, and the husband goes to work and heats it up in the company, and their students do the same.
    But there are a lot of takeaways in China, which are junk food, such as hamburgers, and a lot of bad oil. Prepared dishes. (If you want a portion of braised pork or beef, it's probably already cooked.). How many years can be stored in frozen or room temperature packaging?
    Can you guess why I need to order takeout to solve the problem of eating when I work in an office building. First, there is no canteen in the office building. Second, because I am a foreigner, no one cooks for me when I go home, and no one helps me cook for me. Third, I don't have time to prepare for my own cooking, or I can't get up early every day to make a lunch box and take it to the company. Fourth, I can order takeout at any time. Even if I have a meeting at lunch, I can order a hamburger to fill my stomach at three o'clock.

    Many years ago, Chinese people could not afford TV sets. There are some bicycles or TV sets that may take 10 years to Abandon use.
    A liter of gas now costs about $1.50. What if it goes up to five dollars?

    It is very simple that saving resources is a false proposition. The cost of water and electricity is more than 10 cents per kilowatt hour, but there is a dry season. The cost of thermal power is 4-5 yuan, but it burns coal. The cost of wind power and solar energy is 6-7 yuan, but it is not stable. Now the price of civil electricity is about 50 cents. Do you believe that when the price of electricity rises to 1 yuan, the State Grid can make you feel unlimited energy? State Grid: You waste at will, as long as I pay according to 1 yuan per kilowatt hour, I lose if I can't supply electricity.

    Before UHV, the emergence of every voltage level in our country was at least 20 years later than that in Western countries. Chen Weijiang said. Wang Shaowu told a picture that was still fresh in his memory: I joined the work in 2001, when there was only one HVDC transmission project in China, namely the ± 500 kV Gezhouba-Shanghai HVDC project. This is a foreign company involved in the construction of the project, which can hardly find domestic equipment, even the chairs of the staff on duty in the converter station and the toilets in the substation are assembled from abroad.

    Before the start of the project, the experts organized a group to visit and study at the UHV experimental base in the United States. Although the United States itself did not conquer the UHV technology, it kept the whole research process very secret. The visiting team could not take photos, record, or even copy a number on the machine and parts. Unexpectedly, this absolute secrecy gave China the determination to develop UHV independently.

    I just learned about the independent energy supply system in Texas, USA.
    It covers an area of 700,000 square kilometers, but its GDP is $1.4 trillion, while Russia's GDP is only $1.7 trillion. It is 24 times the size of Texas.
    Texas took the initiative to join the United States as an independent Republic. This is quite different from the 13 British colonies when the United States was founded, which established the United States of America through alliance.
    It seems that the British Empire was not a boast before.

    Hyundai, Kia's parent company, had previously negotiated an agreement with Apple to invest more than $3 billion to start producing Apple-branded cars as soon as 2024.The address is in Georgia.

    $3 billion is a bit of a joke. Between this point, it is only enough to produce a mobile phone.
    Production of new energy vehicles. At least $10 billion will be needed.

    What was the second picture from this post? That's a truly weird looking car. It looks like an SUV ran over something smaller and they merged together.

    Apple does not want you to be still using the same phone for five years. Lots of people will, though, especially as they get older. Five years just isn't as long as it used to be.

    Toyota Rav4 Prime. Electric for commuting, gas for the long trips. I used to need to fill up every couple weeks. Though my tank is considerably smaller, I was just thinking that I'll need to buy gas in May, as by then I will have gone 5 months on a tank, and gas degrades. The car will actually warn me if I don't buy gas every five months.

    Would you like me to drill a hole in the gas tank, just to be in par?
    Also I don't get the Rav type cars in Greece. A LOT of people have one but they live in Athens. We have no fields or tricky roads. OK we have a hill that has a some degrees up but that is it. What the heck do they need cars that takes twice the space and don't turn easy on the curves is beyond me.

    The second picture is Baojun KiWi, a $5,000 Wuling Hongguang Mini.
    Pickup trucks consume about 7 liters of diesel oil per hundred kilometers. If the gasoline engine is used, it needs to consume 10 liters.
    In terms of cost, diesel engines can save 30% of energy costs.
    Gasoline power is 14 times more expensive than coal power.
    In any case, the main reason why electric cars save money is that they can save 80% of the cost by using coal to generate electricity.
    You can drive 100,000 kilometers on a $500 electricity bill.

    You seem to be under a misconception about SUV's. People don't buy them to climb hills or go off road. A SUV could come in handy if you have to drive on snow but not all are even 4 wheel drive. SUV's have larger cargo space and passenger capabilities. I don't know about the Rav 4 but my SUV basically drove like a car, it wasn't a problem on curves.

    It's the American way. The RAV 4 is on the smaller side. It sure has a lot of power, though.

    Re: $30,000 Porsche Xiaomi electric car,do you like it?

    Yeah, Wes is right. I wanted a single vehicle that could tow my boat, carry all my equipment, and would do well in snow. I got that...and I also got more equipment to carry. When I go backpacking...well, anything could carry that. Bike packing isn't all that much more, though the bike is somewhat larger. Car camping...well, that's gotten just a bit absurd, by now, but I do a fair amount of such camping, both for work and leisure. And then there's the boat. Absolutely anything could tow it. Boat and trailer might not top 400 lbs, and any car can tow that, but not all cars can tow that in the US. At least, towing anything could void your warranty, and possibly do bad things to insurance. So, a tow rating was important to me. Getting terrific gas mileage, commuting on electricity, and also having a pretty crazy amount of power, were all nice...and so are the heated seats in the winter.

    Talking about I'll weatherola, we will reach 38 Celsius on Saturday. WTH?....Oh forgot... Greece.
    There is no need for Rav's here .I get people using it on mountains but that would be at winter and if someone goes to the mountains. At winter the population of Athens and suburbs is 4-5mil + 1mil on the other non mountain cities out of 10mil total and the next 4 mil has 1000 islands and mountains to be divided but that does not justify the Athens rav style vehicles. There is absolutely , absolutely no use for them in Athens.
    Also some Tesla around. I try to notice the drivers. Most of them are the "rich" businessman type of the Carol Lady type. I haven't seen a normal person in a Tesla :P . Other than that , I haven't noticed anything other on electric cars. Possible 1-2 here and there but that is it. So idiot Tesla drivers, idiot non use Rav-type (not you) drivers and smart gas drives . I'm praying for an EMP

    It's like you chose to ignore everything SH and I explained to you. Mountains, mountains, mountains. lol

    I'd say the reason they are so popular is right in their description "SUV". Utility vehicle.

    Of course if you don't have a family and you never need to carry more than a small amount, a car would work just fine.

    I did not ignore I was kidding. You might be negative biased so you misunderstood.
    Since when a family needs a Rav to carry things? Unless you are talking about a big family, we mostly don't have those type of families here.

    Re: $30,000 Porsche Xiaomi electric car,do you like it?

    On the second day of the release of Mi Su7, a large number of foreign media completely exploded. The Business Insider website directly criticized Apple by name, saying that Apple had just given up its dream of building cars, and one of its competitors in China, Xiaomi, showed Apple how to do it.
    American media also praised the rapid progress of millet car, from the announcement of the car to R & D and production, only three years later, millet car successfully went on sale. Compared with Apple's announcement of building a car for so many years, if we continue to develop it now, the fastest release time will be 2028.

    Apple aims to produce the batteries used in its self-driving cars in the United States, rather than sourcing them from suppliers in other countries.

    The way of iPhone is the best. Manufactured in China and India. Accessories are purchased from all over the world, and Apple only needs to focus on developing operating systems and designing chips.
    He is too greedy to do anything.

    Tesla also released the first new energy vehicle in only three years.Apple needs 15 years.

    The average Greek family is 4 so unless you carry a water ski for summer, that you can always attach a trail ramp in the back , there is no need for Rav.

    You're thinking of Amish. Mormons are the ones who were polygamist, and some of them still are, though only the fundamentalists. They're more into having kids.

    Yeah, that's some low hanging fruit for you.

    Guessing which American and European car manufacturers are going to still exist in ten to fifteen years time is going to be an interesting game. I'm guessing General Motors will struggle to exist far beyond that point.

    Not sure why you think GM is going to fold. If it's because of electric vehicles, I'm not convinced they're going to take over that fast. The EV new car market share in the US is only @ 6.5%. Plus I'm not sure about the amount of easily mined lithium there is. The infrastructure for EV also has a long way to go.

    Re: $30,000 Porsche Xiaomi electric car,do you like it?

    Well, GM had to sell some of its log-time major subsidiaries in Europe as it failed to make 'world cars' that appealed to a mass market outside the US. We don't see any GM cars over here and Europe is a market as big as the US. If you aren't selling cars here then there is a problem...

    Secondly, the 'stuff' that batteries are made of, for electric cars, China has a virtual monopoly. China can prioritise who it supplies batteries to. That is going to be a problem for US/European automotives. Electric cars are taking a significant but more importantly, a growing share of the market - over here.

    The infrastructure? Well, different answers for different countries. The US is a problem for EVs due to distance and infrastructure. Europe? possibly less of a problem. Yes, infrastructure has a long way to go but 15 years is enough time for something to grow, change and mature, that's the time frame I think we will see a tipping point where a few global brands disappear.

    GM? It might survive in the US for a while, worldwide perhaps through Korean subsidaries. Let's see what happens in 15 years.

    This was surprising to me.

    In 2023, the auto industry in the United States sold approximately 15.5 million light vehicle units. This figure includes retail sales of about 3.12 million passenger cars and just under 12.4 million light trucks.
    My guess is they count SUV's as light trucks.

    Europe only sales @ 10.5 million annually.

    We don't believe in walking or riding a bike. lol

    I have a Toyota Rav4. It is classified as a light truck. That supports your hypothesis.

    Re: $30,000 Porsche Xiaomi electric car,do you like it?

    In Europe we mostly think of good cars BMW , Mercedes and on th lower end VW and possibly Volvo of Saab not really French as they break a lot and of course we then go to Porsche Ferrari Lambo etc. Also Japanese and the late Korean cars are considered reliable. We mostly meh the US cars. I'm thinking of getting an electric one from US but... OK I hope I killed some brains cells from some here :P Ye so I was looking at the usual and I hit a question of ford as I've sen some cheap ones but when I mentioned Ford I got pommeled as most of the people see a lot of issues in those cars. Other than that we get to other US categories that would probably cost me 50Euros per ride. Mustang Viper and the lot.
    So Shaggy got a semi e-bucket and Japanese. Good call on your support of US economy thumps up and salutations!!!

    P.S. I think Rav is classified as SUV , sports utility vehicle. Do you even know what you bought or just jumped in asking for the first e-bucket you could get?! :P ...Thankfully I can happily attack Shaggy as he knows it's a love attack :P I can't do that with some other here as they get the gramps.

    SAIC's $50, 000 I m myself car is on the market.
    Liu Tao, CEO of Zhiji, once suddenly questioned the speed of Xiaomi's car building on Weibo. "2-3 years of complicated vehicle and parts test and verification plan, how to optimize it seems not enough ah, who knows how to achieve so efficient and high-speed?" Liu Tao said. On April 7, Lei Jun responded to the incident through the profile of Weibo. Lei Jun said that the reason why the new forces build cars quickly is closely related to the organizational efficiency and decision-making process of the new forces.

    In fact, China's rice production is more than 200 million tons per year, and millet is only more than 2 million tons. Rice is 76 times more than millet.

    When the company was founded, several of their employees got together to discuss what name to choose. Because everyone was drinking millet porridge, so they took this name.
    At the same time, there is another meaning, millet plus rifle to catch up with others quickly.

    We were very poor when the Japanese invaded China.Most of the land in China is mountainous. There is very little water, so there is no way to grow rice. Millet, like barley, tends to grow a little easier in drier places.
    The Japanese have hundreds of thousands of planes. Dozens of aircraft carriers.
    Each of them comes with 200 rounds of ammunition.The Chinese Red Army had only five bullets. And many of them had no rifles, only a big knife. Or the javelin competition like our Olympic Games.
    During the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, we used Soviet Katyusha weapons, which were very comfortable. Of course, the actual firepower was also limited.

    Just like Siemens mobile phones, Nokia and Motorola. Ericsson, they all went out of business.
    A lot of big car companies or cell phone companies go out of business in a matter of months or years.
    I bought Dopod D900 mobile phone around 2005. Uses windows ce system CPU 500 MHz.He's like the iPhone 4.
    Unfortunately, in those days, we had very little mobile phone traffic. No 4G, no 5g. So such a powerful configuration is almost useless. Think of it as a laptop, and the screen is too small. There weren't even any games back then. At best, it can only be regarded as a mobile web browser.

    But its price is very high, just like the current $8000 mobile phone.

    If you buy Apple stock, it's up 40% in three years. GM's stock is up just 7%. Or lose 20%. How would you operate it?
    If a company loses tens of billions of dollars for three or five years in a row.The company's major shareholders might as well sell their shares and invest directly in Apple or Tesla.
    Maybe the employees in the company will also open another car company to surpass Tesla. Eventually, General Motors went out of business.

    If you know about Tesla's serpentine self-charging robot. In the future, maybe we can use drones to go shopping. Or take your pet outside to play and then go home.
    Robots, autopilot, small electric planes. Private jet, space travel. Every country has a space base.
    The car will be the biggest personal computer for a while.Of course, it can also become a mobile hotel.Even many people are outside, they don't need to rent a house, they can rent a car.
