  From the analysis results, the comprehensive score of BYD Qin PLUS is 4.79, which is at a high level compared with the compact cars in the previous series of articles "A Hundred People Comment on New Cars", which means that car owners are satisfied with the products in their daily use after buying a car. Specifically, the appearance, fuel consumption and cost performance are the highest items with a score of 4.93, followed by the evaluation of power with a score of 4.89. As a family compact car, this achievement is worthy of recognition. In addition, the car’s performance in space and interior is also good. In contrast, the interior needs to be further improved. For car owners, the appearance and cost performance of a car have become the primary consideration in choosing the car. Overall, the performance of the car is still very satisfactory.

  Qin PLUS is the third product of BYD Qin family. The appearance design of the new car is obviously different from that of Qin and Qin Pro which were listed before. The hexagonal mouth is further extended to both sides, and the interior is decorated with array grille, but it is very similar to BYD Han DM. The front face of the car is equipped with LED headlights with "arrow feather" as the design element. In addition, we can see the camera, parking radar probe and millimeter wave radar at the front of the car.

  The tail of Qin PLUS adopts a penetrating taillight, and the shell of the lamp group is blackened, and the LED light source is used inside. Above the taillights, there is also a "Build Your Dreams" trailer with the latest design font.

  From the score point of view, BYD Qin PLUS’s appearance score reached 4.93 points, ranking first in all the project scores, which shows that most car owners are very appreciative of BYD Qin PLUS’s appearance. We can see from the word-of-mouth evaluation of car owners that many car owners said that Qin PLUS has beautiful exterior design, beautiful front design, beautiful headlights and fashionable body. Among them, the owner of the car heard Mei uh mention in word of mouth: "The biggest feeling of BYD Qin PLUS is that it is very exquisite, and the whole body is also quite atmospheric, mainly reflected in the front face. Its grille and headlight design are different and particularly conspicuous." In addition, the owner of the wine shop, Mr. Qing 4o, also said: "If you savor it carefully, you can see that its headlights, rims and the lines of the whole body are very well matched, and the details are particularly excellent, which makes me see that it has spent a lot of thought on its appearance, which is what makes me feel satisfied with this car."

  The overall layout of the new car continues the design of Qin family, but after re-polishing, it presents a different style. First of all, the shape of the panel is no longer the simple style of horizontal and vertical on Qin Pro, but the curve design is added. The rotatable large-size LCD screen in the center is retained, and the original LCD instrument is further simplified.

Byd Qin PLUS 2021 DM-i 120KM flagship model

  Judging from the word-of-mouth evaluation, most car owners have two different views on BYD Qin PLUS interior evaluation. Some car owners think that the interior of the car is satisfactory, the design of the central control panel is good, and the interior material is strong, but some car owners think that the car has problems such as strong interior odor and poor instrument panel design.

  Owner Foshan rider i9ncsv said: "I am quite satisfied with the design of the interior. The interior is well done in many details, especially the materials used in the central control, and some small details around it are well handled, which is more exquisite at the same level." Regarding the central control design of the interior, the owner’s past scar said: "The design inside the car is relatively modern, which is in line with my aesthetics. The most eye-catching thing is that the central control adopts a 10.1-inch central control screen, which can be rotated, and the voice recognition accuracy inside is also relatively high, even if it is a little dialect."

  However, some car owners have put forward different views. Among them, the owner of Qujing Cheyou o8qzbr mentioned: "The smell inside the new car is obvious, so it is usually necessary to open the window for ventilation." Not only that, the owner bird’s light mood also mentioned: "The few days after the car was just bought, I always asked some strange smells, and I had to ventilate. Later, it gradually got better."

  As a family car, the interior design of BYD Qin PLUS is satisfactory, but some car owners are uncomfortable because of the odor inside. This problem really needs to be solved urgently.

● Space score of BYD Qin PLUS: 4.69.

  In terms of space, my colleagues have previously conducted a space test on the top model of Qin PLUS DM-i, and in summary, it is at a fairly satisfactory level. For car owners, in the word-of-mouth evaluation, car owners generally think that the car has enough space, large trunk space, sufficient trunk space and reasonable storage space design. Among them, the owner’s dustless uncle said: "The space of this car is still enough, and it is still very comfortable to sit in the back row. The space in the front and rear rows is still quite spacious, and the space in the trunk is ok. Usually, there is enough room for things." In addition, the owner listened to Mei uh in the snow and said: "What makes me most satisfied is the space. Its space utilization rate is very good, the internal space design is in place, and there is enough space in the front and rear rows for riding. The performance of the trunk is also good. It is easy for a family of three to travel normally, and there will be some room left. "

● Comfort score of BYD Qin PLUS: 4.56.

  In terms of comfort, the owner gave different views. Most car owners think that the car has good comfort, comfortable seats and good sound insulation effect in the car. However, some car owners said that the car has problems such as high tire noise and high wind noise. Among them, owner Yue E hand 8z said: "For me, the comfort of this car is still relatively high, and I appreciate this kind of car with relatively high comfort. Especially the design of the seat, its support is very good and it attracts me very much. " In addition, the owner of the car, Shaoxing rider 7y8pm, also expressed satisfaction with the comfort of the seat. He bluntly said: "In terms of comfort, I prefer its seat, because it is leather, and it is more comfortable to sit on."

  However, some car owners have also raised the problem of loud tire noise. Among them, the car owner Yueyang Cheyou 3332564 said, "The tire noise is still a bit loud, especially when driving on asphalt roads. I endured it for more than a month, because I used more cars and added soundproof cotton myself. "

● Power score of BYD Qin PLUS: 4.89.

Home of the car

  In terms of power, Qin PLUS currently has plug-in hybrid vehicles and pure electric vehicles. Among them, Qin PLUS DM-i is equipped with Xiaoyun-plug-in special 1.5L engine, which has two versions of pure electric battery life of 55km or 120km. The pure electric version will provide AC permanent magnet synchronous motors with maximum power of 100kW and 135kW, with cruising range of 400, 500 and 600 km.

  It can be seen from the score that most car owners are satisfied with the dynamic performance of Qin PLUS. Most car owners think that the car has strong power, strong acceleration, smooth shift and strong start. Only some car owners have suggested that the engine is shaking and the engine starts loudly, but it can be regarded as an individual phenomenon because of the small sample size. The owner’s love sighs V: "The acceleration of the car is very smooth, and there is no sense of frustration during the acceleration." In addition, the owner Heze netizen 1887525 also said: "The power of this car is still very powerful, and I feel full of power every time I drive. Even in a fully loaded state, it will not affect the power output. "

● Control score of BYD Qin PLUS: 4.80.

Home of the car

  In terms of handling performance, car owners have more positive comments on BYD Qin PLUS, such as "powerful handling", "reasonable steering wheel weight", "accurate steering" and "satisfactory driving stability".

  L9ncsv, the owner of Foshan Cheyou, said: "BYD Qin PLUS is easy to operate and particularly easy to use, but it was really a bit difficult at first. After all, I have never driven a hybrid car before, and I feel that this car is a bit stressful for me to drive, but it also takes time to verify and feel." In addition, the owner’s memory burned to ashes also said: "BYD Qin PLUS is very convenient to control, the steering wheel is relatively light, and it is easy to step on the accelerator and brake. Compared with my previous car, it is not difficult to drive."

● Fuel consumption score of BYD Qin PLUS: 4.93 points.

Home of the car

  BYD Qin PLUS has a high score in fuel consumption, and the word-of-mouth page shows that the average fuel consumption of this car is 4.27L/100km, which is obviously better than the average level of compact cars. It is worth mentioning that BYD Qin PLUS currently provides plug-in hybrid and pure electric power, which is its advantage. In terms of fuel consumption, we mainly show the average fuel consumption of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Among them, Tao Dongning, the owner of the car, said: "This car has strong fuel-saving ability, and I bought this car mostly for this reason. The car is really beyond my imagination in terms of fuel saving. This fuel consumption is even better than I expected, which is simply too economical. "

  In addition, in terms of the power consumption of pure electric models, the car owners voluntarily coexist. C said: "At present, the power consumption is still very standard. My car has a battery life of 600 kilometers. I usually drive to and from work, and I only need to charge it once when I come back from shopping on weekends to prepare for next week. Moreover, when I bought a car, I also sent a charging pile for free, so charging is still very convenient. "

● BYD Qin PLUS’s cost performance score: 4.93 points.

Home of the car

  In terms of cost performance, the most popular configuration is the 2021 DM-i 55KM flagship model, and the official guide price is 119,800 yuan. Among them, the owner of Chifeng rider rhurlv said: "More than 100,000 cars can unlock NFC, cruise control, remote control, electric sunroof, multi-function steering wheel, 10.1-inch central control screen, voice control, reversing image, plus satisfactory fuel consumption, and the appearance of the vehicle is full of modernity. This car is very cost-effective."

  In addition, the original owner said, "It’s a natural thing for me to choose this car. At first, because of its beautiful appearance, I gradually felt that all aspects of this car met my requirements. The most important thing is that it is cost-effective and the price is right. And I like it very much, so I started."

● BYD Qin PLUS’s main car purchase purpose:

Home of the car

  Through data analysis, we can see that the main car-buying purposes of the car owners who buy BYD Qin PLUS are commuting, go on road trip and shopping, which is consistent with the use of most family cars. It can be seen that home use is still the core usage scenario of BYD Qin PLUS. Therefore, many car owners are more concerned about fuel consumption, space and cost performance.

Full text summary:

  Among the 100,000-150,000 yuan new energy vehicles, BYD Qin PLUS has a certain competitive advantage. Among them, Qin PLUS DM focuses on low fuel consumption and the price is close to the people. Qin PLUS focuses on high battery life, attracting the attention of many home consumers. Of course, the significance of its launch does not stop there. From a certain point of view, the significance of Qin PLUS for BYD is to further seize the market of traditional fuel vehicles. It is not an exaggeration to say this. After all, it will directly cut the pain point of "fuel consumption" of traditional fuel vehicles. Isn’t this kind of car fragrant? Well, after reading the true reputation of so many car owners, would you choose BYD Qin PLUS? Tell me in the comments section. (Text/car home Li Na)

Starway Eta Ursae Majoris is on sale for 152,800 yuan. Who do you choose, it or Song PLUS DM-i?

Yin Tongyue, the head of Chery Group, always emphasizes that Starway should be made into Chery’s "Audi", but from the actual sales results, Starway has not caused much trouble before. However, recently, the listing of a heavy new car of Xingtu brand may refresh the value of its own B-class SUV and lead Xingtu brand to stand firm in the 200,000-class SUV market.

On February 21st, Starway Eta Ursae Majoris was officially listed, and the guide price range of the new car was 1528-202800 yuan. As the first product created by Starway M3X Mars Architecture 2.0, the new car has a good performance in terms of design, dynamic performance and vehicle intelligence. Let’s take a look.

First of all, in terms of design, Eta Ursae Majoris’s front face is made of a large-sized diamond-cut borderless grille with a penetrating light set, which has a strong sense of science and technology and a strong "future mech wind", but for some people who have "secret fear", it may take a while to adapt. On the side of the car body, a sharp waistline runs through the car body, and with the design of hidden door handles, sports multi-frame wheels and suspended roof, it is still in place to create a sports atmosphere.

The tail is also full of attention, and the split brake light is integrated with the tail spoiler; The slim through taillight adopts stepped design on both sides, which widens the horizontal visual effect well; The layout of the blackened exhaust gas from the two sides below is also enough to scare people. On the whole, it does smell like a performance SUV.

In terms of interior, the design of 24.6-inch integrated curved double screen, double-width steering wheel, through air conditioning outlet and piano paint panel has rendered the technology and luxury inside the car well. In addition, the car also uses a large area of soft packages and stitching, which shows that Starway Eta Ursae Majoris is very cheap this time.

Secondly, in terms of intelligence, this 24.6-inch curved dual screen is equipped with the Lion Smart Cloud LION5.0 car networking system, built-in Qualcomm 8155 smart chip, and has a rich intelligent ecology, integrating common APP software such as WeChat, Meituan, Gaode Navigation and iQiyi.

On the level of intelligent assisted driving, Eta Ursae Majoris provides L2.9 intelligent assisted driving system, and is equipped with Horizon J3 assisted driving chip, which includes 21 basic functions of ADAS and 11 high-order intelligent assisted driving functions, and can realize the functions of autonomous parking service, automatic overtaking lane change, full-speed adaptive cruise, automatic ramp up and down, etc. In addition, Eta Ursae Majoris is equipped with a 50-inch AR-HUD, which can provide 50-inch clear imaging at a line-of-sight of 7.5 meters, and subsequently support OTA upgrade.

Furthermore, in terms of ride experience, Eta Ursae Majoris has a length, width and height of 4,781/1920/1,671 mm and a wheelbase of 2,815 mm. Although the size of the car is only quite satisfactory in terms of parameters, Eta Ursae Majoris has given enough configurations in terms of ride comfort: NAPPA leather seats are used for the main driver, as well as headrest audio, electrically adjustable leg rest and seat ventilation/heating/massage; Extra electric foot rest and queen’s co-driver with five massage modes; Equipped with electric adjustment of rear backrest angle and rear independent fresh air system. To put it simply, looking at SUV models at the price of 150,000-200,000, they rarely give users as many seats/comfort configurations as Eta Ursae Majoris, so it is no wonder that Eta Ursae Majoris dares to say that he is on par with luxury models at the level of 400,000.

In terms of driving control, in terms of power, Eta Ursae Majoris is equipped with a 2.0TGDI+7DCT gold power combination, with a maximum power of 192kW and a peak torque of 400 N m. The fuel consumption under WLTC is 7.5 L/100 km. In terms of handling, Eta Ursae Majoris is equipped with a brand-new flying fish extrasensory chassis, which integrates many advanced technologies and configurations, such as CDC electromagnetic suspension system, Soft stop system, chassis hydraulic vibration isolation system, all-terrain technology system, all-scene intelligent four-wheel drive system, intelligent brake-by-wire system and so on.

To put it simply, Eta Ursae Majoris’s product strength is definitely worthy of its price, so how is its competitiveness compared with competing products of the same level/price?

Let’s talk about independent competing products first. According to Eta Ursae Majoris’s guide price range, we can basically determine that its biggest competitor is BYD Song PLUS DM-i (the price is 15.48-218,800), and the latter is a PHEV model, which has the advantage of being able to get a green license.

However, after a detailed comparison between the two vehicles, we can actually find that, thanks to the vehicle positioning and cost advantages, Eta Ursae Majoris, as a B-class fuel SUV, has a larger seating space and more comfortable configuration, a lower cost than Song PLUS DM-i in terms of intelligent configuration and interior materials, and finally its four-wheel drive version has a lower entry threshold than Song PLUS DM-i (the former is 174,800, and the latter is 20.77).

The weakness of Xingtu Eta Ursae Majoris is that the daily car cost will be higher. Although the fuel economy of its 2.0T engine is good, the fuel consumption of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is 7.6L/100km, but the fuel consumption as low as 4.4L/100km compared with Song PLUS DM-i is still not enough.

Let’s compare the joint venture competing products. Here we list two Japanese veterans at the same price, Toyota RAV4 Rongfang and Honda CR-V. We choose Eta Ursae Majoris four-wheel drive exclusive edition (202,800) /CR-V 2023 two-wheel drive Fengshang edition (201,900) /RAV4 Rongfang 2022 two-wheel drive fashion Plus edition (200,800) with three overlapping price versions.

Through comparison, it can be concluded that the advantages of Eta Ursae Majoris are space (the other two are compact SUVs) and dynamic performance (the maximum power of CR-V 1.5T version is 142kW, and the peak torque is 243N·m;; RAV4 Rongfang 2.0L version has a maximum power of 126kW and a peak torque of 209N·m), configuration and intelligent level. At the same time, Eta Ursae Majoris’s four-wheel drive purchase threshold is lower than them. However, the weakness lies in two aspects: brand power and value-keeping rate. At the same time, Starway Eta Ursae Majoris only provides five seats, while CR-V provides a five-seventh seat layout, which will be less attractive to families with multiple births.

Write it at the end

To sum up, Starway Eta Ursae Majoris’s product strength in driving control, configuration, space, intelligence, materials and other aspects, combined with its price, really has a good competitiveness. However, as we all know, the 200,000-class SUV market in which Starway Eta Ursae Majoris is located needs to strive for service and brand value in addition to technology and product strength. In these aspects, it depends on how Starway brand can improve its marketing and service level.

Then the question is, within the car purchase budget of 150,000-200,000 yuan, will you choose Xingtu Eta Ursae Majoris, Song PLUS DM-i, or a Japanese joint venture SUV with the same price? Welcome to leave a message and discuss in the comment area.

3000km long test, BYD Qin PLUS DM-i really didn’t disappoint?

Since the release of BYD DM-i super hybrid technology, there have been many fans and many controversies, especially about its fuel consumption performance.

Now, it has been more than two months since I started this Qin PLUS (parameter picture) DM-i, and the car has driven nearly 3000 km. It is time to talk about the truest performance of this car.

What is the real fuel consumption?

After the opening of Qin PLUS DM-i, the biggest change is the change of driving mentality.

In the past, when driving a fuel car, as long as you put your foot on the accelerator pedal, all kinds of fuel-saving tips will ring in your ear. What to do is to keep the economic speed, don’t accelerate too fast, and don’t turn the air conditioning temperature too low. Then, when you see the fuel consumption drop from double digits to single digits bit by bit, a sense of pride will always arise.

However, since I started Qin PLUS DM-i, after a short adaptation period, I quickly put these fuel-saving tricks behind me, because DM-i is really fuel-efficient.

At first, I found that when I went out to shoot, I left it on, and when I took a break, I left the air conditioner on, and the fuel consumption would not change, because most of the time, the power of the car battery could completely support the power consumption of the air conditioner; Later, because charging was more troublesome, I often kept running without electricity for a long time, but the fuel consumption of this Qin PLUS DM-i was still "stable as a dog".

Gradually, all my "bad" habits, such as starting at the first red light when driving and never looking at the fuel consumption when stepping on the gas pedal, have come back, but every time, Qin PLUS DM-i will tell me with its quiet and smooth acceleration: Drive with confidence and boldness.

So far, including commuting, shooting and long-distance business trip, this Qin PLUS DM-i has been driving on urban roads and high-speed roads for about 80% and 20%, and it has only been charged for three times during this period. In the case of long-term power loss, its apparent fuel consumption has remained at the level of 3.6L/100km.

The last charge was after the manuscript was finished.

Before charging, I forgot to shoot the meter, which showed fuel consumption, and I shot before leaving when I was fully charged.

Don’t panic at high speed due to power loss.

For this hybrid system of Qin PLUS DM-i, many people are very concerned about whether it will be like Toyota’s hybrid system, although the urban fuel consumption is low, but the high-speed fuel consumption is high.

The final measured performance should make many DM-i followers breathe a sigh of relief.

Last time I was on a business trip to Hefei, I did a test by the way. In the state of power loss, I traveled at a high speed, 307km round trip, and the speed kept between 110 and 120 km/h. Finally, the apparent fuel consumption was about 4.5L/100km, which was excellent.

Of course, because the air conditioner was turned on all the way, and when the engine returned to the starting point, it charged 5% more electricity for the battery, so the battery life was 159km longer than the actual mileage, which may indicate that the fuel consumption of this 1.5L engine will be slightly higher because it needs to be driven and powered at the same time, but the overall fuel consumption will remain within an acceptable range.

Clear the fuel consumption data before departure.

End of trip

At the same time, Qin PLUS DM-i will not be weak in high-speed acceleration when it is fed, because the battery of the vehicle will always maintain a certain percentage of power, thus providing power support during rapid acceleration.

The charging speed is fairly fast.

Of course, for many users who plan to buy DM-i, they hope to achieve the ultimate green travel, so as long as conditions permit, they may try to keep their vehicles in a fully charged state.

For this problem, I also measured it through this Qin plus DM-I.

My machine is a top-of-the-line version with a battery life of 120km, which supports fast charging. When charging at Weilai’s fast charging station, it takes 58 minutes to charge from 20% to 99%, of which it takes about 35 minutes to charge from 30% to 80%.

This charging speed is certainly not fast compared with most pure trams, but because the battery capacity is small, the overall charging time is completely acceptable, and it can be charged for more than half in the case of a short rest in the service area.

The car system is powerful enough

In addition to the super hybrid DM-i, this Qin PLUSDM-i impressed me deeply with its intelligent performance.

Speaking of it, I have also tested many models. Looking back, the functionality of BYD DiLink intelligent network connection system should be the most perfect.

For the simplest example, when speech recognition is started, if the air volume of Qin PLUS DM-i is relatively large, it will automatically and intelligently adjust the air volume to prevent the recognition rate from being affected by poor pickup effect. Not only that, this voice recognition system can not only control common operations such as air conditioning and music, but also control most functions and apps integrated on the central control screen.

This is very practical.

With the increasing popularity of "one screen to control everything" in the car system, many complicated car functions and settings will be buried deep in the layers of menus, which is very inconvenient to find, especially when looking for and adjusting during driving, which will also affect driving safety. DiLink system can control the deep functions such as adjusting the SOC value of the car and adjusting the brake feedback strength by voice, which can be done in one sentence, which is convenient, fast and safe.

It has a sense of advanced driving.

If the hybrid system and intelligence show the technological side of Qin PLUS DM-i as a new energy star model, then its driving experience shows me BYD’s skills in traditional car-making technology.

As a 100,000-class family car, Qin PLUS DM-i adopts a common torsion beam rear suspension of the same level, and its hardware specification is not high. However, after the adjustment of the chassis master, the chassis is solid and compact, and the compression rebound of the suspension is crisp and neat, filtering out most vibrations while retaining a certain sense of road. Even if it encounters a relatively large pothole, the vibration transmitted from the rear suspension to the car will not be very stiff.

I have always heard that Hans, the chief chassis adjustment expert of BYD, is from Mercedes-Benz. Needless to say, the driving quality of Qin PLUS DM-i is really a bit of Mercedes-Benz.

Total knot

It is not difficult to find that Qin PLUS DM-i still has excellent performance in power and fuel consumption under the condition of power loss, regardless of urban roads or high-speed road conditions. At the same time, Qin PLUS DM-i also inherited BYD’s consistently high-intelligence and solid chassis. It is no wonder that a car is hard to find nowadays.

Through this long test, I also want to say to those riders who are waiting for the order to be delivered: DM-i, it’s really worth waiting for!

Has Volvo been abandoned because the new product has been delayed?

In 2017, Volvo brought S90 and XC60 products, which have been the main sales force of Volvo for five years. Although it is often necessary to attract users with huge discounts, in terms of sales volume, relying on these two main models, Volvo’s performance in the past five years can be described as brilliant. However, as the product strength became more and more old, Volvo’s sales began to decline, and it was time for Volvo to innovate.

Looking forward to the stars and the moon, Volvo finally released a flagship pure electric SUV—— some time ago. However, in its report, it was impressively written: "It is planned to be produced and sold in the United States in 2023 and localized in China in 2024." In other words, Volvo, whose current main force has already appeared tired, has released new electric products, but it will take two years to meet consumers. Some insiders believe that the pace of Volvo is still so slow in the new energy era, and it is afraid of being abandoned by the market.

At present, if we only look at the sales data of Volvo, there is something gratifying, because in this market where the epidemic situation is repeated and traditional luxury cars and fuel vehicles are eroded by new energy sources as a whole, compared with those friends who are prone to decline by more than ten or twenty points, the cumulative sales of Volvo in the first 11 months of this year has declined by 7.4%.

But Volvo’s real pain lies not in its sales volume, but in its price and brand image: as early as two or three years ago, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus were still increasing their prices, but XC60 was already in a state of "fracture price", with an average discount of 60,000 to 70,000 yuan, and S90 in some areas could even be discounted by 100,000 yuan. On the surface, Volvo’s guide price can still keep up with the first-line luxury, but in fact its price system has almost slipped to the point of competing with joint ventures for the market.

Judging from the financial report, as early as 2019, Volvo’s operating profit in the first half of the year fell by 30%; In the second half of the year, the growth rate of 0.8% was barely maintained through layoffs and other means. In the first half of this year, Volvo’s revenue alone fell by 14.1%; The net income has been completely negative, with a negative growth of SEK 1.171 billion, which dropped by 134.5%. During this period, although Volvo has set foot in PHEV, the actual performance of T8 power is not inferior to that of BBA, but Volvo’s popularity in the hybrid world is not as high as its "Raytheon Hammer" headlights. At this point, Volvo is in urgent need of an innovation.

Fortunately, in the era of electrification, BBA and Lexus, the top four traditional luxury markets, have not come up with strong gestures and products, and consumers no longer give face to their brands and popularity. This can be said to be an excellent opportunity for other so-called "second-line luxury" to break through.

Volvo’s attitude of transforming into electrification is also quite firm: first, it transferred the main shares of Aurobay to Geely, and at the same time announced that it would stop production of pure fuel vehicles in 2025, which announced that it officially withdrew from the research and development of internal combustion engines and focused on electrification. However, the flagship electric technology exhibited by EX90, as well as the latest design, technology and concept, cannot help worrying about Volvo’s future.

First of all, this car was built on the SPA2 platform. Although this is an upgraded platform of SPA, SPA is an oil-electricity sharing platform that has never exploded and has never had a well-known black technology. Even the initiator of Volvo’s big price reduction came from this platform. The upgraded SPA2 is also not surprising: the maximum battery life of the EX90 is only 600 kilometers, and the minimum is only 467 kilometers (competing products can generally be 50-100 kilometers higher); The 8155 chip (which is the mainstream now, and will certainly be compared in two years) used for car engines, and the driving assistance computing power is 250TOPS (now many domestic flagships have a computing power of over 1,000, and most high-end models are in the range of 407Ps, 770N·m, 503Ps and 910N·m), but this is also compared with other traditional luxury brands.

In addition to the book parameters, the face value of EX90 also gives people a feeling of "XC90 pure electric version" (of course, this is indeed shared by oil and electricity platforms). Not only is the appearance lacking freshness, but the simple interior is also difficult to remind people of the word luxury. In addition to these most important information, EX90 is left with some "flowers": for example, its seat is made of environmentally friendly materials made of PET plastic bottles and resin; For example, the car will be equipped with sensors to detect whether children or pets are left behind; It can even charge in reverse, and use its cruising range of up to 600 kilometers to "feed back" the power grid or other vehicles.

As for the product strength of EX90, to be honest, even if it goes on the market at the end of 2022 and sets a price similar to that of XC90 (starting at 500,000), compared with its competitors, it is in a state where there are basically no advantages but many shortcomings. Compared with the new cars produced in recent years, the disadvantage of EX90 is even greater.

To give a few simple examples, the 11.4 million version of Aouita can have a battery life of 680 kilometers, and the entry version has a horsepower of 578Ps; Tucki G9 not only reached 700+, but also gave 508TOPS computing power; And those extended-range players who have broken thousands of battery life are even more annoying. In addition, technologies such as in-car life detection and reverse charging have already been seen in the domestic camp. The strength of EX90, which is average in book and not new in technology, is dangerous even in the 400,000-level market. But EX90 not only has a high probability that the price will be higher than XC90, but also will not be made in China until two years later … Such a performance certainly makes people uninterested.

More importantly, as a flagship, EX90 not only has low expectations, but also makes people’s thoughts on Volvo’s new products drop to freezing point. Is the future Volvo electric car the appearance of this current model after changing from oil to electricity, with a simple vertical screen interior? Compared with the extreme krypton that has blossomed in the high-end market, is Volvo’s future performance and battery life just like this? For the increasingly important intelligent travel, is Volvo such a mentality of running behind others? If so, in the new energy era, let alone Volvo’s luxury status, it will lack characteristics and competitiveness even if it is downgraded to an ordinary brand.

It must be said that Volvo, which is slow in electrification and weak in strength, not only faces being abandoned by the market, but also seems to be at arm’s length with Geely Group. Two years ago, the two companies announced that they would really merge into a group company, but the result after that was not only that the merger failed, but also that their cooperation in the power field came to an end. During this period, not only did Krypton successfully rush into the mid-to-high-end electric vehicle market of 300,000-400,000 grades, but also the geometric new energy, which is the main entry-level market, became the enemy of Ai ‘an. Geely even used the vast structure of SEA to help smart jump from the 100,000-grade fuel market to the 200,000-grade pure electric vehicle market, and the monthly sales volume of 1,000+was also higher than before.

On the other hand, Volvo is determined to realize electrification as soon as possible, but its real strength is still in the stage of plug-in+oil-for-electricity exchange. No matter whether SPA2 compares with the vast architecture of SEA or EX90 competes with Krypton 001, Geely can’t pretend to be a "teacher" when it comes to electrification, but it needs to ask this "senior" some difficult problems about the China market. The reason why the merger of the two companies broke down is probably because Volvo, whose car business was only $1.8 billion at the beginning, has an IPO valuation of nearly $30 billion after ten years of growth, which makes it have the idea of going solo, and perhaps makes it offer a price that even Geely, a "diamond VIP" in the acquisition industry, can’t bear in the merger negotiation.

In fact, Volvo needs Geely more now than it did 12 years ago. Not only because of the huge capital investment required by electrification technology, but also because of Geely’s achievements and strength in this field. For example, in the embarrassing period when Volvo’s sales and profits are both declining, Geely’s vast SEA architecture can help it tide over the difficulties.

However, these two brands in the same group began to "play their own games" in the field of electrification, which needs to concentrate on doing big things: they are extremely separated and independent; Volvo has never been able to use the vast structure of SEA. After 12 years, the couple finally began to sleep in separate rooms. Judging from the situation, Volvo’s soaring valuation is only temporary, and Geely, which has already taken off geometrically, has grasped the future. If we really want to part ways, Volvo may be the one abandoned by superior resources.

Summary:Among many luxury brands, Volvo never shows its edge, and rarely shows its ambition to surpass anyone. From the cost performance of products to the main concepts of safety and environmental protection, it even has many unique places. But after these years, Volvo’s main ideas have not been further recognized by domestic consumers. The slow pace of updating has led to a brand that cannot catch up with the high-end market at the price level and must be discounted in the main market. Faced with this situation, Volvo’s determination to cross the rubicon and "fully and quickly" electrify is worthy of recognition, but its achievements are obviously difficult to reverse the current decline. What’s more, the localization time of EX90 has been set in 2024, and it and Geely have begun to "drift away" in technology … So, Volvo may once again usher in a cold winter.

Guangzhou Automobile Science and Technology Day 2024: All-solid-state battery/no-picture pure visual intelligent driving, etc.

  [Pacific Auto] On this year’s Science and Technology Day, three key messages were announced, namely GARCIA’s unmanned pure vision autopilot, GAC’s all-solid-state battery, the new intelligent light architecture iGLCA, and the E9 electric welfare version went offline. The first two items will be installed on the model in 2026.

  No-map intelligent driving is the place that all car companies want to break through, while the pure vision scheme is to abandon sensors such as laser radar and only identify obstacles around the vehicle through the camera, which provides reference for vehicle control decision-making for intelligent driving system. On Guangzhou Automobile Science and Technology Day in 2024, Guangzhou Automobile officially released NDA, a map-free city that does not rely on high-precision maps. According to the official, Guangzhou Automobile’s map-free NDA can be opened regardless of the urban main roads, expressways, narrow streets, barren hills and wild roads and country roads, as long as there is no map NDA in the area covered by navigation.

  This system has basically realized the function of high-speed and urban NDA in Guangzhou’s core urban area through the ability to accurately understand complex traffic roads, the ability to identify traffic lights and the ability to deal with complex and changeable scenes. It is reported that after the official release of the city map-free NDA today, it will be launched by the new Haobo HT in the near future, and strive to achieve national coverage in the second half of the year.

  Two automatic parking modes were demonstrated on the spot, one of which was a vertical parking space facing the broken road and close to the broken road. The driver can complete the whole reversing action with his hands without taking over as long as he chooses the target parking space in the car. In this process, the overall performance is like an old driver. He will first find a spacious place to transfer the body, and then park the car with about 2-3 hands, and the wheels on both sides will not press the edge of the mechanical parking space.

  There is also a kind of remote parking that people leave the car near the mechanical parking space, only to see that Haoplatinum GT still stops in the parking space very smoothly, and the overall performance is the same as that of the old driver.

  On-site experience of a Haobo GT model test car equipped with this map-free intelligent driving function, to sum up, it is to face complex road conditions, such as full cars on both sides, electric cars in the same direction or retrograde, cars in the same direction occupying roads and borrowing opposite lanes, and other systems can be handled perfectly without manual takeover. The daily operations such as stopping, starting and turning automatically are close to the performance of old drivers.

2022 Chengdu Auto Show: Large-scale high-performance luxury pickup truck, real shot of the Great Wall Shanhai cannon.

At the Chengdu Auto Show, which opened on August 26th, the Great Wall Gun brand made its debut in a large-scale high-performance luxury pickup truck, which was equipped with a 3.0T V6+9AT high-performance power combination, a luxurious cockpit and ever-changing expansion space. This car is the Great Wall Shanhai Gun. The front-line team of Niuche. com also took pictures of Shanhai cannons. Let’s have a look.

In terms of appearance, the outline of Shanhai Gun is almost the same as that of the current Great Wall Gun, and it is still tough and domineering, but some modifications have been made in details. For example, the new car uses a more complicated and beautiful chrome-plated and black two-color front net, and the headlight group also uses an upper and lower double-layer design, which is more layered and more exquisite.

The classic pickup truck shape is still used on the side, and the wide wheel eyebrows and large ground clearance seem to tell you that I am still the Great Wall Gun that can go up the mountain and down the river, full of momentum, and the lines on the side of the car are also straight lines on the upper and lower floors, which not only looks atmospheric, but also has a good sense of hierarchy. In terms of parameters, the length, width and height of the new car are 5440/1991/1924mm and the wheelbase is 3350mm, which is a little bigger than the ordinary version of the Great Wall Gun, and it also indicates more internal space. The rim also adopts a two-color design, which is more fashionable and conforms to the current aesthetics.

The headlights at the rear of the car also adopt an up-and-down split internal structure, which echoes the headlights. The rear tailgate can be unfolded left and right, can be opened horizontally, and can be split in four or six parts. The upper cover plate can also be folded up and down, making it more convenient to take things. However, due to the limited size of the car body, the size of the trunk is not very large. Fortunately, there is a large storage box under the bottom cover of the trunk, which is enough for daily driving or traveling. ‘

For enthusiasts, Shanhai Gun has also reserved a lot of anchor points in the rear trunk, which is convenient for modification according to actual needs. At the same time, the tail is equipped with a trailer hook and an optional winch, all of which have greatly improved its extreme off-road ability.

In terms of interior, Shanhai Gun is similar to Tank 500, using a small-sized LCD instrument and a suspended central control panel, which is practical, luxurious and scientific, and the three-position steering wheel is the same as the joystick of the spacecraft, which is classic and innovative.

At the same time, in creating a sense of luxury, the interior of the new car uses a lot of leather and soft material packages, and many solid wood decorative boards are added to the details, which are very eye-catching, domineering in appearance and exquisite in interior. It is the core index of Shanhai Gun.

Configuration, head-up display, quartz clock, brand audio, electric adjustable rear seat angle, heating and ventilation of front and rear seats are all available, which is quite surprising.

Finally:

Looking at luxury, sitting comfortably and driving wild seems to be the realm that Shanhai cannon wants to achieve. However, in this era, hard-core cross-country is paying attention to the comfort of transportation. It is also normal for Great Wall Gun to build such a large pickup truck with exquisiteness and luxury. Then let’s wait for its performance and see if you recognize this pickup truck with great personality.

Volvo, which has two enemies at home and in Europe, is expected to land on the Stockholm Stock Exchange in the second half of the year.

Wen | You Niu Finance

After Geely Automobile decided to terminate its trip to science and technology innovation board, Volvo once again revealed its trend in the capital market.

According to media reports, in an interview with the media on June 30th, samuelson, CEO of Volvo Cars, revealed that Volvo’s listing process has made good progress, and it may land on the Nasdaq Stockholm Stock Exchange at the end of this year.

In fact, Volvo Car has discussed the possible listing many times. After giving up the plan to merge with Geely Automobile, Volvo once again embarked on the road of landing in the capital market.

Volvo Car, which is famous for its safety, was founded in Gothenburg, Sweden in 1927. After decades of development, it has gradually become a famous luxury car brand in Sweden. Volvo’s two founders originally worked for SKF, a well-known ball bearing manufacturer at that time. One was an engineer and the other was the manager of international marketing department. They persuaded SKF’s board of directors at that time to start research and development of new cars in 1926, and officially launched the first product a year later.

With excellent sales performance, Volvo grew in size. In 1935, it officially left its parent company SKF and continued to operate independently for Volvo. In 1999, Volvo Group sold its Volvo car business to Ford Motor Company of the United States, and eleven years later, it was acquired by Geely Automobile in China for $1.8 billion.

After Volvo embraced Geely Automobile, it embarked on the highway of development. According to the data released by Volvo Cars, its global car sales in 2019 were 705,400 vehicles, up 9.8% year-on-year, achieving a six-year continuous increase in sales. Among them, China is still Volvo’s largest single market, with a cumulative sales volume of 154,000 vehicles.

At the same time of rapid development, Volvo began to plan the route of landing in the capital market.

In March 2017, some media reported that Volvo planned to raise 500 million US dollars to prepare for listing. In 2018, Volvo officially launched the listing plan. At that time, top investment banks such as Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley were hired for listing counseling. However, Volvo finally stopped the IPO plan because the valuation given by the investment banks did not meet expectations.

On February 10 last year, when Geely announced that it would merge with Volvo, some analysts thought it was Geely’s action to help Volvo go public as a whole. Wang Guanqiao, chief analyst of Industrial Securities Transportation Equipment Industry Research, said: "Volvo’s listing is inevitable, but it is only a matter of what form and how much valuation."

However, this merger only lasted for about a year. In February this year, Geely Automobile said that the previous merger plan was shelved, and the two parties would maintain independent operations, but they would cooperate in the fields of autonomous driving, electrification and powertrain.

In mid-May this year, Volvo announced in a statement that it was seeking an initial public offering from the Nasdaq Stockholm Stock Exchange, and also extended the contract of CEO samuelson until the end of 2022, while samuelson had been hoping to promote Volvo’s listing.

Looking at the whole automobile market, new energy vehicles have become the focus of a new round of competition in the global automobile industry after 2020.

According to Canalys’ forecast, it is estimated that in 2021, the global sales of electric vehicles will exceed 5 million, accounting for more than 7% of global sales, up 66% year-on-year. It is estimated that by 2030, the sales of electric vehicles will reach 48% of the global passenger car sales.

On the one hand, with the progress of artificial intelligence, big data, autonomous driving, 5G and other technologies, and the establishment of carbon-neutral targets around the world, a new round of technological revolution will bring earth-shaking changes to the automobile manufacturing field.

On the other hand, the domestic sales of new energy vehicles account for a small part of the global market, and the national policy support originally planned to withdraw from the market this year is still being distributed because of the continuation of the epidemic, which also provides more support and encouragement for the development of the new energy market, which keeps the domestic new energy fever high for a long time.

Shi Jianhua, deputy secretary-general of China Automobile Industry Association, said in an interview with the media recently: "At present, it is not a problem for the domestic annual sales of new energy vehicles to exceed 2 million this year, especially under the advocacy of the two principles and policies of" carbon neutrality "and" peak carbon dioxide emissions ",the internal and external environment of the new energy vehicle market is still constantly optimized and accelerated."

In May, for example, the domestic sales volume of new energy vehicles was 217,000, a year-on-year increase of 159.7%. From January to May this year, the cumulative sales volume of new energy vehicles reached 950,000, a year-on-year increase of 224.2%. However, due to the epidemic last year, this data may not directly reflect the real situation of new energy vehicles in China. Compared with the sales of 1.206 million vehicles in 2019, the sales of new energy vehicles in the first five months of this year have reached 78% of the sales in 2019, with a huge overall increase.

On the other hand, according to the report of Forward-looking Industry Research Institute, as Volvo’s home market in Europe, the proportion of new energy vehicle sales in global sales in 2020 even exceeds that in China, reaching 43.8%, which may be a good situation for Volvo, which focuses on Europe and China, because of its previous sales base.

In the face of the growing global new energy vehicle market, it is inevitable that Volvo chooses to go public to promote the company’s development. For Volvo, if it can be listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, it will be able to face global investors and reduce the influence of China investors. Moreover, Volvo’s independent listing, for Geely and Volvo, can be valued separately, which also has certain advantages in the capital market.

In the rapidly growing new energy vehicle market, listing can reserve some funds for Volvo, which can reduce the financial pressure, whether it is used for follow-up research and development or to open up sales channels. However, it needs to be clear that after Volvo’s independent listing, Geely Automobile will remain its major shareholder.

However, in such a big market of new energy vehicles, there are naturally many players who want to take a slice of this big cake.

After the year 2021, many domestic enterprises such as Baidu, Xiaomi, 360, SAIC, Beiqi and Dongfeng have joined in the manufacturing of new energy vehicles, and some enterprises have launched smart car brands to grab market share, such as the HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S Huawei, which adopts many Huawei technologies, and the first new energy vehicle equipped with HarmonyOS OS smart cockpit.

Not only in China, but also in Europe, which accounts for the largest sales volume of new energy vehicles in 2020, with the introduction of various favorable policies (subsidies and suppression of traditional vehicles) for new energy vehicles by the European Union, many traditional automobile giants such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi have actively or passively engaged in this field.

"At present, the automobile industry is undergoing changes at an unprecedented speed. Electrification, autonomous driving, intelligent networking and new business models are coming like a wave, and the competition in the industry is becoming increasingly fierce. We must be fully prepared. " Geely wrote in an internal letter published on February 10th.

In fact, the pressure on Volvo is not only from other players entering the market, but also from Geely.

On the one hand, Geely and Baidu cooperated to set up a new energy vehicle enterprise named "Jidu" at the beginning of this year, which gathered Baidu’s autonomous driving technology and Geely’s experience in vehicle manufacturing.

On the other hand, as early as 2016, Volvo and Geely jointly established a high-end brand named Lectra, and a year later, Polar Star was established, which also had a certain impact on Volvo’s new energy vehicle strategy. For example, Polar Star released a pure electric vehicle Polestar 2 in early 2019, while Volvo did not release a model named XC40 Recharge until October, and the parameters of the two models were almost the same.

Fortunately, Volvo is also trying to make changes.

Volvo plans to standard lidar on the next generation of new cars, and in order to achieve software autonomy, Volvo began to switch from relying on suppliers to developing its own software. According to Volvo, it is currently cooperating with NVIDIA, Google and other technology companies, gradually transforming into a full-stack self-research and central computing platform, and plans to equip future models with self-developed in-vehicle systems.

Samuelson plans to achieve full electrification in 2025, reaching the global sales target of 1.2 million vehicles, of which 50% are pure electric vehicles and the rest are hybrid vehicles; In 2030, it became a pure electric luxury car enterprise; Strive to become a climate zero-load benchmark enterprise in 2040; All pure electric vehicles will be sold online.

If this transformation strategy can be carried out smoothly, it will help Volvo to occupy a place in the global competition of new energy vehicles, but the road to change is full of risks and unknowns. Facing the eyeing competitors, listing is a rare opportunity for Volvo to become the leader of luxury pure tram enterprises.

Chery tiggo 8PLUS kunpeng edition will be on the market soon, which is more expensive but stronger.

The Tiggo 8 series is undoubtedly the most important model in Chery’s product matrix, which can basically contribute more than 10,000 vehicles to the brand every month. Under Chery’s big single product strategy, the current Tiggo 8 series has formed a high and low camp of Tiggo 8PLUS+ Tiggo 8, covering the price range of 80,000-160,000. Chery has been continuously tapping its market potential for this hot-selling product. Not long ago, it launched the Tiggo 8 Kunpeng version and added 2.0T power. The Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng version will also be launched tonight.

The modeling design of the Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng Edition is consistent with the original 1.5T and 1.6T series, but it is different from the Tiggo 8. The interior of the polygonal grille on the front of the car is chrome-plated in star lattice, and two groups of L-shaped light sources are used in the narrow headlights on both sides, which is more recognizable after lighting, and the whole front face is relatively more refined than the original design.

The side is not big, the shape is stable and atmospheric, and the two-color wheel hub highlights the movement. The rear part doesn’t use penetrating taillights like the Tiggo 8, but the black and white decoration inside is also quite individual, and a large number of horizontal lines also outline a strong level of big mouth. It is worth mentioning that the car uses a bilateral four-way exhaust hole design, which indicates good performance.

The interior uses the popular digital cockpit style. The central control panel and the instrument panel form a double screen design. There is also a touch control panel in front of the bar. The three screens create a strong scientific and technological atmosphere, and a small number of physical buttons are set in the car, which is convenient for quick operation.

In the configuration part, the Tiggo 8PLUS Kunpeng version will come standard with front and rear airbags, panoramic sunroof, induction electric trunk, dual 12.3-inch screen, 360-degree panoramic image, voice recognition system, navigation, car networking, OTA upgrade and other functions. In addition to the heroic version, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, road traffic sign recognition, full-speed adaptive cruise, active braking and built-in driving recorder will also be equipped.

The dimensions, length, width and height of the new car are 4722/1860/1745mm and the wheelbase is 2710mm, which is quite spacious for a five-seat car. The trunk volume can reach 889L in normal state, and it is 1930L in the back row.

The Kunpeng version uses a 2.0TGDI turbocharged engine with a maximum horsepower of 254Ps and a peak torque of 390N·m, which has appeared on many Chery models. It is reported that the car can achieve a zero-speed acceleration of 7.3S, and the vehicle will also be equipped with a new generation of electronically controlled intelligent four-wheel drive system, with various driving modes such as economy, sports, snow, mud and off-road, which can adapt to more different road conditions.

The Kunpeng version will be more expensive than the cash price, and the current pre-sale price is 1419-169900 yuan, but the richer configuration and stronger power performance are undoubtedly very worthwhile. At present, the Tiggo 8 series has become the sales force of the explosive family in the market, and the arrival of the Kunpeng version has further improved the product layout, which is believed to contribute to the sales growth.

  Cambodia shows "development and opportunity"

  The shape design of the Cambodia National Pavilion originated from the Royal Palace in Cambodia, focusing on the traditional culture and special commodities of the Khmer nation. Economic Daily-China Economic Net reporter Zhang Bao for the picture

  The National Pavilion of Cambodia has strong national cultural characteristics, and the whole pavilion "copied" pictures of the Royal Palace of Cambodia, Angkor Wat and other famous temples in Cambodia. On the big screen in the museum, there is a promotional film on Cambodia’s trade, economy and tourism development.

  "Cambodia hopes to show traditional Khmer culture and special commodities, introduce the investment, trade and tourism environment, and invite countries to share cooperation opportunities." According to China’s embassy in Cambodia, business counselor Wu Guoquan, the first China International Import Expo(CIIE) brought Cambodia a full harvest, and China-Cambodia economic and trade cooperation was tangible and fruitful. In this year’s China International Import Expo(CIIE), Cambodian people from all walks of life are more enthusiastic. The special products such as cassava, pepper, cashew nuts, palm sugar, fish sauce, coffee and handicrafts displayed in the museum have attracted many visitors to buy them.

  In addition to specialty products, Cambodia focused on Cambodia’s trade and economy, Khmer culture, tourism and investment projects this year. A poster attracted the reporter’s attention. Under the words "Development and Opportunity", there was a picture of a vast blue sea with pleasant scenery. Gao Chunhui, director of the operation center of Tianjin Youlian Investment Development Group Co., Ltd., told the reporter that the group has been in Cambodia for 12 years. The Cambodia-China Comprehensive Investment Development Experimental Zone and Cambodia Qixinghai Tourism and Holiday Zone written on the poster are one of the 11 key cooperation projects for China-Cambodia capacity investment jointly signed by China and Cambodia in October 2016.

  Gao Chunhui said that the group hopes to use China International Import Expo(CIIE) to attract foreign partners to invest in Cambodia. Cambodia has the best coastline, precious mangroves, good business environment, friendly people and sufficient labor force. "Over the past three days, many companies have come to dock and are interested in investing in tourism and other industries in Cambodia. We feel very rewarding. Later, we will continue to dock, hoping that they will visit Cambodia and share ‘ Development and opportunity ’ 。” (Economic Daily-China Economic Net reporter Shen Zezhen Zhang Bao)

  Jamaican eagerly awaits China’s investment.

  Visitors taste Jamaica’s Blue Mountain Coffee. Economic Daily-China Economic Net reporter Zhou Mingyang photo

  Jamaican was one of the 15 guest countries in the second China International Import Expo(CIIE) and participated in China International Import Expo(CIIE) for the second time. The Jamaican National Pavilion shows its achievements in agriculture, tourism, mining, logistics and other fields to consumers in China, expecting to reach deeper and wider cooperation with China.

  Jamaica is located in the western part of the Caribbean, with superior geographical position, rich natural resources and mineral resources, good climatic conditions, and the port with the highest throughput in the Caribbean. This year, the theme of the Jamaica Pavilion is "Doing business in Jamaica", and "Investment, trade and connectivity" are the three key words of Jamaica’s participation. I hope that by participating in China International Import Expo(CIIE), more people will know about Jamaica’s business environment and investment environment and invest in Jamaica.

  The front of the "bar" in the Jamaica Pavilion is very lively, and the audience waiting to taste Jamaica’s blue mountain coffee and rum lined up in a long line. The whole Jamaica Pavilion is full of attractive coffee and wine. Ni Kaolian, general manager of Nijie Business Consulting (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. is based in Shanghai and is responsible for investment consulting, product procurement, tourism information consulting and cultural exchange between China and Jamaica. She told reporters that participating in the first China International Import Expo(CIIE) made more people begin to understand and pay attention to Jamaica.

  This year’s China International Import Expo(CIIE), Jamaica brought many high-quality products, such as lobster, coffee, tea, rum, sauces and so on, which are popular among China consumers. "Frozen lobsters from Jamaica can already be bought in China. This year, we will launch a fresh lobster business, and China consumers can taste fresher Jamaican lobsters."

  Tourism is the key project promoted by Jamaica this time. Jamaica has beautiful beaches. Visitors can experience surfing, rowing, diving and other marine projects, and eat delicious seafood and exquisite dishes. Visitors can also experience "farmhouse music", be a "Caribbean farmer", harvest sugar cane like locals, make rum by themselves, and even ride horses in the sea. More importantly, Jamaica’s culture is diverse. Being in Jamaica, you can appreciate the integrated culture of the whole Caribbean.

  Ni Kaolian said that Jamaica has vast farmland, developed agricultural and processing infrastructure, abundant low-cost labor and huge market opportunities. With the expansion of Panama Canal, Jamaica’s logistics industry has developed rapidly. "Jamaica is a good place to do business. Welcome more China friends to visit Jamaica!"

  India expands bigger export market

  The India Pavilion displays the development achievements in the fields of service trade, science and technology in India. Economic Daily-China Economic Net reporter Zhu Lin photo

  Stepping into the National Pavilion of India, the colors dominated by white and blue give people a fresh and quiet feeling. The person in charge told the reporter that China people are familiar with India’s long history, rich culture, special cuisine and colorful art, but what they want to show at the China International Import Expo(CIIE) is an India that is changing with each passing day and full of infinite possibilities.

  "Indian vaccines are exported to 150 countries and regions around the world; India has become a global small car manufacturing center; India ranks fifth in adopting automation technology on a large scale … …” Indian Minister of Commerce Anup Wadhawan said in a message to China International Import Expo(CIIE) that China International Import Expo(CIIE) provides a unique opportunity for Indian exporters to explore new opportunities and further expand their trade footprint and market share.

  In the museum, India displayed its development achievements in service trade, tourism, culture, food and other major industries and science and technology. Sharad Kumar Saraf, President of the Federation of Indian Export Organizations, said that China International Import Expo(CIIE) is an ideal platform for inviting China enterprises to invest in India.

  "By 2028, India will become the third largest economy in the world" — — This is a propaganda slogan in the India Pavilion. The head of the India Pavilion said that it is becoming more and more convenient for Indian goods to be exported to China. In the fields of pharmaceuticals, information technology and agricultural products, which have global influence and competitive advantages, there will be more room for cooperation between India and China in the future.

  The head of India National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation Co., Ltd. said that China’s continuous opening-up and the implementation of various convenient measures to attract foreign enterprises to enter China provided a very good opportunity for Indian enterprises to enter the China market.

  In the India Pavilion, an exhibitor from Guangxi stopped for a long time at the booth where spices were placed and studied all kinds of spices with great interest.
