Here is Energy Weekly report. We are committed to bring together all the topics and new launching vehicles in the new energy area. Last week, Evergrande Group's new energy project settled in Nansha, The9-FF's new energy project settled in Hohhot, and Shandong Guojin Automobile also officially obtained the new energy vehicle production qualification and became another “double-qualified enterprise. In addition, the NIO Pilot automatic assisted driving system officially began to launch. Next, let's have a total look at it. 

The latest

1. Evergrande's 160 billion new energy project settled in Nansha. The new plant has an annual production capacity of 1 million vehicles.

On June 11, Evergrande and the Guangzhou government signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement and a major investment cooperation agreement for the Nansha series. According to the agreement, Evergrande will invest 160 billion yuan to build three new bases for new energy vehicles in Nansha District of Guangzhou: a production base with the annual production capacity of 1 million vehicles in the future, a power plant super-factory with a production capacity of 50GWh and a motor and electronic control system production base capable of supporting 1 million vehicles.

Editor: Evergrande's road to building cars has always been accompanied by a large amount of RMB (or other various currencies). This time, Evergrande signed another 160 billion large orders and a new energy vehicle manufacturing base with an annual output of 1 million units. Compared with the previous 5 million units, it is downsized, but it is amazing enough.

2. The9-FF project settled in Hohhot

On June 10th, The9 announced that it has signed a memorandum of strategic cooperation with the Office of the Development Leading Group of the Sha’erqin Industrial Zone in the Hohhot Development Zone. The memorandum is valid for three months. According to the memorandum signed this time, Hohhot Sha’erqin Industrial Zone will reserve no less than 5,000 acres of land for the new energy project of The9 and FF, and support the joint venture company to obtain the qualification of new energy passenger vehicle production.

At the same time, The9 and Hohhot Sha'erqin Industrial Zone will jointly set up a new energy industry fund. The9 and its subsidiaries will contribute no less than 500 million yuan, including the purchase of industrial land and commercial land. The government will contribute no less than 1.5 billion yuan. Including fund subsidies, infrastructure, and other supporting construction, and investing in industry-related investment and operations. In addition, the Sha'erqin Industrial Zone plans to coordinate a financing loan of 4 billion yuan for The9-FF project, recommending local industry funds and banks to provide interest-free, interest-bearing or low-interest loans.

Editor: This cooperation plan looks a bit interesting. The 9-FF fund is no less than 500 million yuan. The government has invested no less than 1.5 billion yuan, plus 4 billion yuan in loans, plus 5,000 acres of land.

3. NIO officially launched NIO Pilot automatic assisted driving system

On June 10th, NIO officially launched the NIO OS 2.0 system and the NIO Pilot automatic assisted driving system to the owner. The system added seven functions, including Pilot, ALC, LKA, CTA-F, TSR, APA, etc., to make the vehicle reach the L2 automatic assisted driving level.

Editor: Although the ES8 has been on the market for a year and a half, its NIO Pilot automatic assisted driving system has been delayed. In fact, it is mainly because NIO chose positive development in the aspect of assisted driving system instead of purchasing existing products. Its automatic driving algorithm, low-level software and ADAS controller are all from NIO China and NIO North America team.

In addition to the first commemorative edition, other users need to install NIO Pilot for 39,000 yuan. If there is no option when purchasing a car, it does not matter. All models of NIO ES8 are pre-installed with corresponding modules, so users can activate NIO Pilot through paid upgrade. NIO also said that it will open the upgrade channel to the old users in the later stage.

4. Shandong Guojin officially obtained new energy production qualification

On June 12, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the “Road Motor Vehicle Manufacturing Enterprise and Product Announcement” (the 320th batch). Shandong Guojin of Zibo High-tech Zone became the first new energy vehicle enterprise in Shandong Province to obtain independent production qualification. At the same time, this also means that Guojin Automobile has obtained the “double qualification” of the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Editor: In the current new energy market in China, Guojin is almost a “transparent” existence, but it has quietly won the “double qualification”. In addition, Gao Jiangtao, the former general manager of ZOTYE Auto Sales Company, will also contribute to Guojin's marketing system construction and new model building.

New Models

BYD e2 officially launched, will be listed in mid-July

On June 10th, the third model of BYD e-net, e2, officially went offline. The overall design of the new car still has the "Dragon Face" design element. The design of the e2 is sporty, the grid adopts the star array design. The new car will be available in two different power configurations with a maximum of 70 kW and 100 kW respectively. In addition, the new model has a NEDC cruising range of 305 kilometers and a maximum speed of 125 km/h. It is understood that the new car will be officially listed in mid-July this year.

Editor: In three months, BYD has launched three models. Although the first two models are considered to be revisions of the old models, the BYD e1 has almost the same appearance as the F0, but the vehicle is based on the BYD e platform. The BYD e2 only weighs 1250kg, far lower than other pure electric vehicles of the same level. It can be seen that BYD has made a lot of efforts in terms of lightweight.
