Rimac Nevera Heads to Goodwood Festival of Speed, and You Could Be in the Passenger Seat
Since its first appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2021, Nevera has been named GQ’s Hypercar of the Year, Top Gear Magazine’s Best Electric Performance Car and Robb Report’s Best Hypercar. Examples of the Nevera are currently being handbuilt on Rimac Automobili’s production line in Croatia, with the first deliveries to customers taking place across the summer. The Rimac Nevera will be heading to Goodwood Festival of Speed again this week, ready to show visitors why it’s been crowned as the fastest accelerating production car in the world. Equipped with a 1,914hp Rimac-designed four-motor powertrain, complete with Rimac All-Wheel Torque Vectoring 2 (R-AWTV 2), the Nevera is ready for some controlled crowd-pleasing slides and four-wheel burnouts on the Duke of Richmond’s famous driveway. Alongside Rimac clients and prospects, for one lucky Rimac fan, there’s also the opportunity to experience Nevera from inside the cabin. This week on the Rimac Instagram page followers have the chance to win a seat in the Nevera for a run up the hill on Sunday 26 June, with the car piloted by Rimac Automobili test driver Miroslav “Mrgud” Zrnčević. Mate Rimac, CEO of The Rimac Group, said, “When I first started this business in 2009, I was just a fan. I used to read obsessively about the latest supercars, and I would dream of one day getting to drive them. Building the Nevera was really the culmination of this dream for me, and I’d love to be able to share what we’ve built with one of our fans. That’s why we’re choosing to give away this space in the passenger seat to one of our Instagram followers; we have many fans that we try to bring as close to the action as we possibly can. But we’re taking that further than ever before with this latest prize.” So far, only buyers, potential customers, Rimac employees and media have experienced the Nevera’s next-generation performance, so this represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to feel the visceral thrill of Rimac’s next-generation all-electric hypercar. The Nevera is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in less than two seconds and from 0-100mph in just 4.3 seconds. It proved itself the fastest accelerating production car in the world last year, setting a quarter-mile time of 8.582 seconds. Meanwhile, the R-AWTV 2 system enables infinitely variable dynamic responses to road and track conditions by constantly monitoring and calibrating the amount of torque supplied to each wheel. Both predictive and responsive, R-AWTV makes over 100 calculations per second to tailor the level of torque to achieve the desired driving style. Able to be personalised by the driver, SPORT mode sharpens the response of the throttle, brakes, suspension and steering, while DRIFT mode supplies more torque to the rear wheels to help the car into a controlled slide. The Nevera in green callisto spec will be on display throughout the event in the Michelin Supercar Paddock, and taking to the hill twice a day in Batch 6, Supercars and First Glance.

New Peugeot model debuts in China's Auto Valley with fresh brand image
WUHAN, China, June 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The new Peugeot 408 has made its world debut in Wuhan Economic & Technological Development Zone (WHDZ), also known as China's Auto Valley. To one's surprise, in the middle of the front face of the new 408, a new shield-shape lion logo replaces the previous standing lion cub as the brand's image. New Peugeot 408 This year marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile Company LTD (DPCA). DPCA has developed together with the WHDZ in the past three decades. On May 16, 1991, bearing the national mission of developing the automobile industry, the WHDZ officially broke ground in Wuhan's Zhuankou. The vast deserted land has been sleeping for a long time began to wake up, and the dream of building China's automobile capital set sail. After more than 30 years of development, the WHDZ has transformed from a project into a city, and the annual output of automobiles has ballooned from 1,000 to one million, an increase of nearly 1,000 times, making it one of the regions with the highest concentration of automobile manufacturing industry in China. Within less than 500 square kilometers, it has attracted 9 vehicle enterprises, 13 vehicle factories that have been built or are under construction, and more than 500 world-famous parts supporting enterprises from countries such as the United States, Britain, Japan, Germany and France. State-owned auto enterprises, new comers and emerging forces develop together in the WHDZ, elevating the region to one of the most competitive auto districts and counties in China, and the WHDZ gains the reputation of China's Auto Valley. In October 2002, Dongfeng Company signed a joint venture contract with France's PSA Peugeot Citroen Group in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. As an important part of the contract, the Peugeot brand made a comeback to the Chinese market by means of establishing Peugeot. Over the years, Peugeot 206, 307, 408 and other models have entered many families, making Peugeot one of the mainstream joint venture automobile brands in China. In particular, Peugeot 408 has been upgraded and modified for many times since its launch, with a cumulative sales volume of nearly 600,000 units in 12 years, including nearly 8,000 units exported overseas. In 2015, the 408 model was thrown into the spotlight, with annual sales exceeding 100,000 units and becoming the star model of DPCA and Peugeot. The automobile market is always changing fast. DPCA and Peugeot have posted steady rises amid competition. In October 2020, DPCA launched a project and a campaign at the DPCA Automotive Cultural Festival. The project upgrades DPCA's mid-term business strategy to more localized products, more accurate marketing, more reliable services and more efficient operations. The customer-focused campaign seeks to offer more quality services throughout the car purchase and use experience. These efforts have brought changes. In 2021, Peugeot got a refresh with a new brand strategy to compete in the Chinese passenger car market again. Peugeot sold 51,000 vehicles in 2021, registering a year-on-year increase of 74 percent. DPCA takes customer as the focus and keeps pressing ahead with innovation, which is also a solid step on the road of helping the WHDZ build China's Auto Valley and a world-class automobile industry cluster. To make products more localized, half a year ago, Dongfeng Citroen launched the Versailles C5 X, which became a market hit immediately. Now the new 408 has gone global from China's Auto Valley with a bright future. Image Attachments Links: Link: http://asianetnews.net/view-attachment?attach-id=423853 Caption: New Peugeot 408

Monolith AI Software Accelerates Development of World-Class Vehicles
Monolith, an AI software platform used by the world’s leading automotive, aerospace and industrial engineering teams from Siemens to Honeywell, announced today that engineering teams at the BMW Group, the world’s leading premium manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles, are using its software to accelerate the development of their world-class vehicles. By training Monolith self-learning models with the company’s valuable engineering test data, engineers can now use AI to solve previously impossible physics challenges and instantly predict the performance of highly complex systems like crash and aerodynamics tests. The BMW Group crash test engineering team began working with Monolith in 2019 via the BMW Startup Garage to explore the potential of using AI to predict the force on a passenger’s tibia during a crash. Current crash development uses 1000s of simulations as well as physical tests to capture performance. Even with sophisticated modelling, owing to the complexity of the physics underpinning crash dynamics, results require substantial engineering know-how to calibrate for real world behaviour. Moreover, physical crash tests can only be conducted in later stages of development when the design is mature enough to create physical prototypes. Exploring a more efficient solution, the BMW Group collaborated with Monolith to see if AI could predict crash performance and importantly, substantially earlier in the vehicle development process. The BMW Startup Garage, BMW Group’s venture client unit, facilitated this collaboration and helped Monolith grow its business relations with the premium automotive manufacturer. Using Monolith, BMW Group engineers built self-learning models using the wealth of their existing crash data and were able to accurately predict the force on the tibia for a range of different crash types without doing physical crashes. Moreover, the accuracy of the self-learning models will continue to improve as more data becomes available and the platform is further embedded into the engineering workflow. This game-changing approach now means engineers can optimise crash performance earlier in the design process and reduce dependence on time-intensive, costly testing whilst making historical data infinitely more valuable. “When the intractable physics of a complex vehicle system means it can’t be truly solved via simulation, AI and self-learning models can fill the gap to instantly understand and predict vehicle performance. This offers engineers a tremendous new tool to do less testing and more learning from their data by reducing the number of required simulations and physical tests while critically making existing data more valuable,” said Dr Richard Ahlfeld, CEO and Founder, Monolith. “We are excited to see how BMW Group engineers are using pioneering technologies like Monolith to reduce the cost and time of product development as they develop the next generation of premium vehicles.” The Monolith platform has been developed with a laser focus on user experience by automotive experts and data scientists to ensure seamless integration with existing engineering processes. As a result, as soon as the software is implemented, domain experts quickly begin gaining valuable insights and time back, as well as the chance to explore an even wider design space. “What’s perhaps even more exciting than the promise of accelerating the vehicle development process is the opportunity for engineers to explore more design parameters and find new relationships between operating conditions without the need for data science support. Suddenly the combination of engineering expertise and machine learning becomes a competitive game-changer and gives our customers the means to create world-class products more efficiently." Dr Richard Ahlfeld continued. The BMW Group is expanding its use of Monolith into more engineering functions across R&D that generate vast amounts of data from crash testing to aerodynamics, motorsports and advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS). Monolith is poised to swiftly scale, propelled by more globally renowned engineering teams adopting Monolith, an expert team, network of industry partners and an extensive portfolio of IP.
Cango Inc. Launches Cango Haoche APP
SHANGHAI, June 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cango Inc. (NYSE: CANG) ("Cango" or the "Company"), a leading automotive transaction service platform in China, today announced that the Company launched its Cango Haoche mobile application (the "APP") on June 20, 2022. Built on the success of its Cango Haoche WeChat mini-program, which was introduced last year, the APP marks an important milestone for Cango in transforming its business into a one-stop automotive transaction services platform empowering the whole automotive chain. With this new APP, Cango aims to meet dealers' evolving and diverse demands more promptly and accurately with a stabler and more robust system, as well as smoother and richer functionality. The APP provides end-to-end services to dealers, especially small- and medium-sized dealers in lower-tier markets, ranging from steady vehicle sources and nationwide warehousing and logistics services to support for financial and insurance services. In addition to the WeChat mini-program's original services such as online car search, vehicle source listing and model search, the new APP supports real-time inventory inquiries for proprietary vehicles, enabling registered dealers to access inventory status and make decisions accordingly. Furthermore, Cango optimized the APP's online payment feature, providing dealers with greater convenience and security for their online transactions. Gu Min, Vice President of Cango Group, commented, "Despite the multitude of players in our industry, as yet there is no comprehensive platform providing integrated car trading transactions, financial, insurance and implementation services, especially in lower-tier markets. Our Cango Haoche APP represents a tremendous step forward in our efforts to fill that void. Cango has been cultivating its presence in lower-tier markets for over a decade and boasts deep market insights as well as a broad understanding of dealers' needs. Our platform and tools directly address dealers' pain points by providing one-stop, end-to-end services and serving as a trusted partner on their journey, supporting them as they grow." Going forward, the Cango Haoche APP and WeChat mini program will run in parallel. Dealers can easily conduct car searches, check vehicle sources and review trending recommendations of proprietary car models on the mini-program, while accessing increasingly efficient empowerment services and functions on the APP, strengthening user stickiness. To provide a more interactive experience and further increase user loyalty, the Company will periodically launch discounts, coupons, gifts and other special offers through the APP. Recently, favorable policies such as the reduction of the passenger vehicle purchase tax and promotion of new energy vehicles (NEVs) in rural areas have stimulated demand for automotive consumption, particularly in lower-tier cities. This policy support, along with largely unmet consumer demand in lower-tier markets, bodes well for Cango given the Company's extensive knowledge of and experience with a wide dealer network in those markets. Cango will leverage these opportunities to continue building its end-to-end closed service loop, empowering dealers and connecting the upstream and the downstream of the industry through platform services covering vehicle sources, finance, insurance, warehousing, logistics, and supply chain finance.

Rider Dome to feature its revolutionary rider safety system in Giken Mobility's Iso-branded Electric Motorcycles
Giken Mobility and Rider Dome teams, alongside Iso UNO-X SINGAPORE, June 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Rider Dome, a Singapore startup providing motorcyclists with real-time alerts against critical threats on the road, is pleased to announce that it has recently partnered with Giken Mobility Ltd ("Giken Mobility"), the exclusive global licensee and manufacturer of the Italian heritage motorcycle brand, Iso ("Iso") owned by the family of Ferruccio Lamborghini, to feature Rider Dome's Advanced AI-based Rider Assistance technology in Iso's upcoming electric motorcycle. Rider Dome and Giken Mobility teams, alongside Iso UNO-X While Advanced Driving Assistance has already become a common practice in the four-wheeler industry and was found to reduce road accidents by 40%, the motorcycle industry still lags far behind. Giken Mobility and Rider Dome's partnership seeks to pioneer this change and accelerate the rate at which motorcyclists adopt this life-saving technology. The system will provide Iso riders with crucial alerts such as blind-spot alert, collision alert, safe distance alert, and more, giving riders the extra few seconds to react in the event of an emergency. In recent years, similar partnerships have placed Singapore at the forefront of innovation in the automotive space. Customers can expect to get a first glimpse of the Rider Dome powered Iso electric motorcycle at the International Cycle and Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA) in Milan in November 2022. "We are excited about the partnership and confident that Rider Dome will provide Iso's riders with a new and safer riding experience. Iso is a perfect partner since it reflects the future of motorcycles which combine innovation along with practical and modern design," says Yoav Elgrichi, CEO of Rider Dome. Sydney Yeung, CEO of Giken Mobility, commented, "Today, riders aren't just looking for comfort and economical vehicles. What they are truly looking for is the vehicle that delivers the entire package. Customers want motorcycles that are great for the environment, machines that are designed to perfection, and above-all, technology that adheres to the highest safety standards. By partnering with Rider Dome, Iso will be one of the first few motorcycle brands in the industry to feature Advanced Rider Assistance designed specifically for motorcycles. We believe that embracing this essential technology will have a sizable impact on road safety for years to come." THE ISO BRAND Founded in 1939 under the name Isothermos, Iso is associated with the history of post-war enterprise in Italy. The company began making mopeds, motorcycles, and light four-wheeled vehicles in 1948. But the real turning point came a year later, with the launch of the motorcycle that was to become Iso's bestseller: the Isomoto. The Isomoto rapidly became one of the biggest competitors of the Vespa and the Lambretta on the Italian market in the '50s, churning out a hundred motorcycles a day. Thus, the Iso became a status symbol, still remembered by the generation that rode it and its fans, also thanks to a truly revolutionary, elegant invention: the Isetta city car. The Isomoto opened the way to mass production of motorcycles and motorbikes on a larger scale, until the company decided to start making cars only, from the GT300 to its last descendent, dated 1974. Iso has now been reborn thanks to the intuition of a young Italian entrepreneur named after his venerable grandfather, a household name all over the world: Ferruccio Lamborghini. In partnership with Giken Mobility, who provide the brand's high-tech heart, Iso is now producing innovative, even revolutionary new vehicles: the electric motorcycles. The historic griffin logo, a symbol of power and perfection, perfectly incarnates the values of the brand, now reborn in pursuit of innovation, research, sustainability, and Italian heritage. www.isomobility.comwww.riderdome.comFor any enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
