    2020 Denza X e-SUV

    Let embrace the EV storm, from CHINA. To those that said China brand is dead in Singapore, think again. China is now leading the EV market, and several established auto manufacturers are actually trying to collaborate with these Chinese EV startup to gain entry into the EV segment. Denza X, an electrified crossover, is a product of the joint venture between Daimler and China’s BYD, but more importantly, the design child of the former. Thus Denza X has unashamedly incorporates Mercedes-Benz influences, from the seat designs, to the trimmings, air vents and everything in between. If you’ve driven any recent Benz’s, you’ll feel right at home here. Earlier this year, China’s EV brand Denza, a 50:50 joint venture between BYD and Daimler, presented the sleek Concept X designed by Mercedes-Benz. Since things move really fast in China’s auto industry, the company has already revealed the production model that’s called the Denza X. The midsize crossover stays remarkably close to the concept from a styling standpoint, although the pop-out door handles and rearview cameras haven’t made it to the production model. The bumpers have also been modified, as have the lights. Inside, the 4.89-meter (192.5-inch) long SUV offers seven seats and a dashboard dominated by a massive center display that can rotate, changing its orientation from portrait to landscape and back. The Denza X also features a fully digital instrument panel. Chinese customers will be able to choose from two powertrains, a plug-in hybrid and an all-electric. The PHEV combines a 192 PS (189 HP) 2.0-liter turbo-four gasoline engine, two electric motors, and a battery. The motor mounted on the front axle delivers 150 PS (148 HP) while the one at the back produces 245 PS (242 HP). It’s the same powertrain found on the BYD Tang, with which the Denza X shares its underpinnings. With a usable output of more than 400 PS (396 HP), the plug-in hybrid model is said to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 5 seconds. As for the all-electric version, it’s powered by a single electric motor delivering 245 PS (242 HP) and can cover around 500 km (311 miles) on a single charge according to the NEDC cycle. Denza will release more details about its new model at the November launch, with deliveries in China expected to start in early 2020.

    China's Xiaomi Is Coming ...

    Don't get any wrong ideal ........... It's China Smartphone. Yahoo News : China’s Xiaomi confirms it will bring its smartphones to Singapore this year Today Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone maker known for selling top-notch handsets at bargain bin prices, revealed via social media that it’s next stop beyond the Greater China will indeed be Singapore. Yesterday Xiaomi’s Hong Kong and Taiwan Facebook pages posted messages featuring the company’s rabbit mascot beside a Chinese dragon proclaiming “Hello Singapore”, linking to a Xiaomi Singapore Facebook page. However, now that Hugo Barra posted the same picture on his Google+ profile page, the proverbial writing is on the proverbial wall. Curiously, the Singapore Facebook page appears to have been created in May 2013 – three months before Barra got on board. This might indicate that Xiaomi had been eyeing the move for some time. Xiaomi had publicly indicated that its next overseas stop beyond Taiwan and Hong Kong would be Singapore back in December when it held a fan meetup in Taipei. The move to the city-state will test the company’s chops in a market in which consumers have higher incomes on average. It also will be branching out from exclusively Chinese-speaking markets into a multi-lingual market. Just this morning Xiaomi announced that it had sold over 18 million handsets in 2013, more than twice the 7.19 million it doled out the previous year. In 2014, it’s hoping to hit 40 million. As for revenues, the company raked in over $5.18 billion for the year. Saw it in China last month whilst visiting Hainan Island. Nice and light, only problem is program all in Chinese wording which reframe me from buying....

  9. This thread is purely based on historical version of 3 Kingdoms, and not the novel part. After liu bei passed away in 222AD, he handed shu kingdom to his son liu shan and also zhuge liang and Li Yan. But Zhuge liang still holds most power and authority. during his tenure, he advocated military confrontation against wei for at least 5 major times. And all his military expedition was failures. Was Zhuge liang correct in embarking on offensive military campaigns against a much strong opponents? Or could he have just employed a more inward growing and adopted a wait and see kinda approach? Would that have resulted in Shu lasting longer or grew stronger in the long run?

    Buick, anyone?

    2018 Buick Regal GS first drive: The backroad Buick The new GS may not be track ready, but it’s an improved Regal by every performance measurementhttp://autoweek.com/article/car-reviews/2018-buick-regal-gs-first-drive-backroad-buick#ixzz58JgWnwXP One might assume the GS (Gran Sport) badge on the back of this Buick means serious business. After all, in the past, those two little letters signaled to everyone that specialized performance equipment was on board. The very first GS models back in the mid-1960s were hardcore. Buick described the Skylark GS as “a howitzer with windshield wipers.” And to be sure, the 2018 Regal GS is a meaningful improvement over the standard Regal Sportback. Yet, this one stops short of being a howitzer—or a true track-ready performance package. “It’s not really meant to drive on the other side of that wall, onto the racetrack,” Buick’s vehicle performance manager Mike Mueller mentions to us as we look out over Atlanta Motorsports Park’s road course in Dawsonville, Georgia. “We could have dialed up the GS but that’s not where we were trying to go. It’s not supposed to be a Camaro, Corvetteor high-performance Cadillac.” While the GS may not be a super sedan like Caddy’s V-Series monsters, engineers massaged the Regal in every way to improve its performance on the street. Under the hood, GM’s venerable 3.6-liter V6 takes the place of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in standard Regals. Here, that V6 makes 310 hp and 282 lb-ft of torque—a 60 hp and 26 lb-ft of torque bump over the four. Although the last Regal GS offered the option of a six-speed manual transmission up until 2016, this new one comes paired solely to GM’s nine-speed automatic. And all Regal GS models use a specifically-tuned version of the Regal’s twin-clutch all-wheel drive system. The chassis components as well as the strut front and five-link rear suspension systems are largely the same as the ones used on the more pedestrian Regal Sportback AWD models. The biggest change comes from the adoption of Continuous Damping Control (CDC) dampers from ZF at each corner. The firmness of these shocks can be adjusted through buttons on the center console. The front springs are unique here but only because the V6 carries an additional 40 pounds over the four-cylinder. Mueller says the stabilizer bars as well as chassis bushings remain unchanged. The GS does have Brembo brakes up front that measure 13.6-inches in diameter, up an inch over the standard Regal front brakes. Out back, the GS has 12.4-inch vented discs that are about an inch larger than the solid discs in the Regal. And to cover the new brakes, there are 19-inch wheels wrapped in 245/40R19 Continental Procontact TX tires. The GS carries some tasteful body mods, including more aggressive front and rear facias, side sills and a rear lip spoiler, and they make an already handsome car look a little tougher. On the inside, there are unique GS sill plates, a GS shifter and 14-way adjustable sport seats. Of course, this is still a Sportback. And that means there’s 31.5 cu-ft of cargo space with the rear seats up and a wagon-like 60.7 cu-ft. with them folded. So, this sporty machine is quite useful too. The Execution Slide into the new heated, cooled, massaging and heavily bolstered sport seats and its clear the GS is built to have some fun. The seats are fantastic and even include adjustable thigh support which was appreciated by my six-foot-four driving partner. Another welcome upgrade is the new partial TFT instrument cluster. It’s modern and much more befitting a car in this price class compared to the analog cluster in the normal Regal. Immediately ahead of the shifter are buttons labeled “sport” and “GS”. They are the key to unlocking driving enjoyment in this Buick. Press sport and the transmission will hold onto gears slightly longer and quicken the shifts. Sport mode also increases the heft of the steering, biases more torque to the rear axle and will dial up a firmer damping setting too. An individual mode allows the steering, dampers and all-wheel drive system responsiveness to be adjusted independently. Engage the “GS” mode and its basically Buick’s version of sport plus. The steering boost is dialed back even further, resulting in heavier, more substantial weighting. The transmission shifts are no quicker but the shift schedule is more aggressive, so it won’t upshift to a taller gear if you are hustling down a mountain road. The all-wheel drive system will bias even more of the engine’s torque to the rear axle here, and the damping from the CDC system becomes firmer still. What doesn’t change, no matter what mode you select, are the calibrations for ABS, traction control and stability control. You can turn off traction control by pressing a button on the dash once. And by holding that button down for a few seconds, the stability control can be dialed way back. But as one might imagine—it never goes away completely. “We don’t suddenly give you back 1970s handling,” says Mueller. “There’s always that last ditch effort from the system to keep you on the road.” One of the best things about the Regal GS is that it’s not overly hard-edged in anything that it does. There are plenty of sporty cars that can be a little too stiff and aggressive for daily driving, but Buick strikes an excellent balance here. In the default (normal) mode, the Regal drives just like a regular Sportback. The suspension is smooth and that nine-speed goes about its work in the background without anyone really noticing. The V6 is just fine here with plenty of torque to squirt through traffic. Driven hard, the Regal is quick. But this is the same basic V6 that lives under the hood of so many GM products—everything from Camaros to Colorados and even Buick’s own LaCrosse. So, when you really work this V6 hard, it doesn’t feel or sound particularly exciting, or special enough for a high-performance application Drive it up a set of switchbacks and the transmission’s preference for taller gears will have you pressing the sport or GS buttons. We toggled through all three modes (normal, sport and GS) and found that in almost every driving situation, we just left it in GS. The transmission calibration is excellent, dropping gears or holding onto them without going one gear too far or staying in a low gear too long. The heavier weighting of the steering in GS mode feels good on a mountain drive as well as in the city. On those twisty Georgia backroads the Regal GS was athletic and fun. The only reason to perhaps not have the GS in GS mode? Negotiating a field of Detroit-class potholes. Our $43,510 Regal GS was loaded. It carried the $945 Sights and Sounds package, which includes Buick’s navigation system HD Radio, and a Bose audio system. The $1,690 Driver Confidence Package pulls together all the safety tech like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, forward collision warning amongst others. The Appearance Package ($485) brings wireless phone charging and LED headlamps on board. Our metallic paint cost an additional $395 and the sport aluminum pedals are $175. The Takeaway The GS is certainly the Regal in Buick’s lineup we’d want parked in our own garage. It’s responsive and enjoyable on ribbons of twisty asphalt without compromising comfort—and that’s appealing. But there are of course others in the Buick’s competitive class -- performance German machinery that will bring a little more agility and a little more cache to the driving experience for a little more money. Still with all the options checked, the GS is a really good deal and easily the best Buick we’ve driven in years.
  15. China mum sells off twin babies for $12,600, buys new phone https://www.asiaone.com/china/china-mum-sells-twin-babies-12600-buys-new-phone?xtor=EREC-16-4[Emarsys_Newsletter]-20190910&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77 BY KIMBERLY ANNE LIM ASIAONE Blood may be thicker than water but for this mum in China, money trumps all — including her own children. A single mother, known only as Ma, sold off her newborn twin boys in September last year for a total of 65,000 yuan (S$12,600), according to media reports. The sale was only uncovered by local police recently in the course of investigations into a different case. Ma, who is in her 20s and hails from Zhejiang province, claimed that she did it because she was "penniless and heavily in debt". According to the woman, her parents had refused to help her because they were angry about the pre-marital pregnancy. To make matters worse, the father of the twins, known only as Wu, reportedly refused to be responsible for the babies. He was also nowhere to be found when they were born, only resurfacing to beg Ma to settle his debts after he heard that the twins had been sold off. Ma decided to split the proceeds of the sale with Wu, using her share to pay off her credit card debts and to buy a new mobile phone. By the time police arrested the pair, they had already spent all of the money. Upon further investigation, police managed to track down the babies who had been sold to two couples in Anhui province, reuniting them with Ma's parents. kimberlylim@asiaone.com Sep 09, 2019

    MCF China

    I noticed that there are a few MCF-ers here who have left our sunny island and gone to the Motherland, for work or other opportunities. To tell you guys a secret, I am now also one of them. I started a new job in January and am now based in Shanghai, It's been quite an interesting experience so far living and working in China (although Shanghai is not very much diff from Singapore, other than the cold winter weather) I'm guessing this can be a thread for all of us who are based in China, to gather, talk cock, chit chat and share tips. Not sure if this is the appropriate place to put this though.
  17. Watched a repeat of TopGear (episod in china) and the 3 men condemned whatever cars made in china. I think today, china's cars are not really up to international standard yet in terms of safety, performance, etc but since these B&B cars are for their domestic markets where the majority of buyers dont really know anything better, china car makers will continue to churn out millions of mediocre cars yet still find buyers queue up, end of the days making tons of money. Is there a incentive for them to make better cars, to match the quality/performance etc of say VW etc, let alone the highend conti/jap/korean cars? Those china buyers who have the taste / money for better cars, in typical chinese 'culture', will buy imported cars, coz no china car makers have the prestige / history / brandnames to attract buyers who want not only good cars, but also 'face'/status only brands like Merc/BWM (RR also) etc could provide. Patrioism is more or less non existent when it comes to the rich, except state owned companies buying mic highend cars for their bosses? Bottomline, will it be almost unforeseable china made cars will ever match the quality / status of highend foreign-made cars? not in the next 10/20 years? The expanding domestic B&B car markets are big enough to occupy them for a long time, export is hardly something they have time to think about.
  18. Are China car companies finally catching up to the koreans? http://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-suv-china-thinks-westerners-will-buy-1661123637 This is the Qoros 3 SUV Before anyone writes this off as another all show no go. The Qoros 3 sedan scored a 5 star NCAP safety rating in 2013 and had one of the overall highest scores of the year. BUt of course, let's not kid ourselves, there is the huge barrier of perception, especially here in Asia where even Korean makes have to compete on the price / value for money front instead of the lust factor. Will China finally be able to come in and compete with Koreans now?

  20. This is the the limited-edition NIO x Razer ES6 Night Explorer. The electric car was displayed at China Joy 2019, a digital expo and conference in Shanghai. It was announced as a collaboration between the homegrown gaming brand and NIO, a Chinese automobile company manufacturing smart electric vehicles. Before you get too excited, the exclusive automobile is only limited to 88 units for sale in China. But interested Razer fans shouldn’t fret, as the new electric SUV is the first of several future partnerships between Razer and NIO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBMSM2VOQOc
  21. Woman in China loses leg after getting trapped in escalator, but witnesses say it was her fault https://www.asiaone.com/china/woman-china-loses-leg-after-getting-trapped-escalator-witnesses-say-it-was-her-fault?xtor=EREC-16-4%5BEmarsys_Newsletter%5D-20190724&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77 An elderly woman lost her left leg in yet another escalator accident in China after half her body appeared to be 'swallowed' by the machinery. But witnesses say the victim may not have been entirely blameless after all. The freak incident occurred on Saturday (July 20) in a shopping mall in the Heilongjiang capital city of Harbin. Viral social media footage showed the shopper, believed to be in her 60s, holding onto the escalator handle while she remained trapped waist down in a gap. According to China News, by the time firefighters were able to free her, her left leg had already been severed at the knee and her right foot mangled. Family members claim that the escalator had been running normally before the steps gave way. "There wasn't even anywhere for her to jump to," one of them can be heard saying in a video by Pear Video. However, multiples witnesses say otherwise. Several eyewitnesses interviewed said that the woman had insisted on going on the escalator despite barricades surrounding it. "The escalator was under repairs, there were barricades all around. She removed the barricades. The escalator was just fixed and they were still testing it!" one shopkeeper told the camera. Said a bystander: "It was still under maintenance but she insisted. You couldn't stop her at all." Another witness agreed, saying: "They were still testing the escalator when she insisted on going on it. So she stepped on and everything gave way." The actual cause of the accident is still under investigation by authorities. Fortunately, the victim is now in a stable condition after undergoing emergency surgery at a local hospital. rainercheung@asiaone.com
  22. 92 children in China burned by TCM treatment gone wrong https://www.asiaone.com/china/92-children-china-burned-tcm-treatment-gone-wrong A hospital in Jiangxi, China, has recently suspended a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapy after 92 children suffered from burns after receiving the treatment. Known as sanfutie (三伏贴), the treatment usually involves applying medicated patches on various acupuncture points on the patient's back to treat illnesses. According to Chinese media, 881 children received the treatment from July 12 to 13. With Jiangxi Provincial Hospital's reputation as a trustworthy and top-tier medical facility, the therapy was highly anticipated by parents, said a mother, Wu Meng (pseudonym), whose daughter and son received the treatment. 10 minutes after application of sanfutie, however, her daughter "could not bear it any longer and ripped off the medicinal patch," she said. Meanwhile, her son bore the brunt of the effects of the treatment which lasted for two hours. By night time, his skin started to turn red. The boy cried constantly, was unable to eat and maintained a high fever for 20 hours, Wu told Red Star News. According to investigations, the reason behind the children's adverse skin reactions to the TCM treatment was a change in the formula of the herbal paste that was used. Young ginger was replaced with old ginger and the alcohol concentration of the paste was increased from 56° to 62°. Hospital staff had believed that the new formula would be more effective. Instead, the 'improved' formula saw children suffering adverse skin reactions, ranging from redness and swelling of the skin, blisters, broken skin, to burns. Parents have appealed to the hospital to conduct an examination to prove that the treatment has no toxic side effects, and publish the components of the herbal paste, so as to reveal whether it contained any harmful ingredients. They also asked that the hospital allow affected children to stay at the hospital for treatment, as well as provide appropriate compensation. Meanwhile, the Provincial Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Provincial Health Commission has instructed the hospital to dismiss the staff responsible for the incident and also provide sufficient follow-up treatment for the affected children. Such an incident is not the first of its kind. Red Star News reporters have discovered that many hospitals in Guangdong, Shandong, Henan, and other places have promoted sanfutie treatment. Patients who underwent the treatment at said hospitals also suffered from burns. wongxuemin@asiaone.com
  23. Gg liao We somewhat expected this But it came sooner. NEW YORK (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and software products except those covered by open source licenses, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Sunday, in a blow to the Chinese technology company that the U.S. government has sought to blacklist around the world. Details of the specific services were still being discussed internally at Google, according to the source. Huawei attorneys are also studying the impact of the U.S. Commerce Department's actions, a Huawei spokesman said on Friday. Huawei was not immediately reachable for further comment. Representatives of the U.S. Commerce Department did not immediately have comment. Huawei Technologies Co Ltd will immediately lose access to updates to the Android operating system, and the next version of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app. Huawei will continue to have access to the version of the Android operating system available through the open source license that is freely open to anyone who wishes to use it. But Google will stop providing any technical support and collaboration for Android and Google services to Huawei going forward, the source said. On Thursday the Trump administration officially added Huawei to a trade blacklist, immediately enacting restrictions that will make it extremely difficult for the technology giant to do business with U.S. companies.

  24. Greetings! Did a short getaway to Guangzhou, China with my wife a short while back. We were looking for a short getaway, and at first we looked at the region, but finally decided that it would be more fun to go to China instead. So we chose Guangzhou, which was a 4 hour flight (like flying to Hong Kong). It was a free and easy trip. We didn't cover very much, but hey, this was supposed to be for rest and relaxation. Before I jump into what we say, check out this new 'All Fours Movement' (coined by me). Elderly crawling up hill on all fours? This was at Yue Xiu Park, Guangzhou. Quite bizarre, but they seem to know what they were doing. Stay tuned for more.
