CnEVPost Newsletter: XPeng hints at new logo design; Salon to debut first model with four LiDARs
XPeng has released a teaser image that shows its "X" logo with a flat foot instead of the rounded corners of the previous logo.
How many LiDARs are enough for an EV? NIO says one, XPeng says two, WM Motor says three and Salon says "if you have less than four, shut up."
NIO has invested in about 40 companies in 5 years, and XPeng and Li Auto have also made outbound investments to build deeper moats.
As of November 15, NIO had 614 battery swap stations in China, as well as 467 supercharging stations, offering 2,718 charging posts.
It seems Tesla isn't completely immune to chip shortages.
Tesla added 10 new Supercharger stations, including 66 supercharging piles, in China this week.
Avatr 11 will be officially launched in the second quarter of next year, with mass production and first deliveries in the third quarter.
