  China news agency, Beijing, January 26th (Reporter Shen Chen) Adidas, a partner of Beijing Olympic Games, officially launched the "Star of the Great Wall", a game ball designed for the Beijing Olympic football match, here on the 26th, and Adidas’ 2008 Olympic football tour started.

  The "Star of the Great Wall" was specially designed by Adidas for the Beijing Olympic Games, highlighting the elements of China. The world is dominated by red and gold with strong China characteristics, with the Great Wall pattern on the hook edge, and the word "China" inscribed by Nian Weisi, a leading soccer player in China, is printed on the sphere.


Nian Weisi, a veteran of China football, introduced the feeling of writing the word "China" on the "Star of the Great Wall" football.

  Nian Weisi said that he has witnessed the development of China football, and it is a golden opportunity to hold the Olympic Games in Beijing. He expects China football to make a breakthrough at home. "I hope that the international players can eat well, practice well and get ready during the preparation period. By August 8, they will go into battle lightly, play the style and play the level, and win glory for the country under the influence of China."

  China Olympic athletes Zhao Xuri, Jiang Ning, Shen Longyuan and China women’s football players Li Jie, Han Duan and Bi Yan felt the "Star of the Great Wall" at the first time. Zhao Xuri said that the surface of the "Great Wall Star" is not very smooth, and the ball speed will be faster and easier to control during the game. "I hope to score more goals when I get to the Beijing Olympic Games."

  It is reported that the "Star of the Great Wall" uses the most advanced 14 pieces of skin splicing and the latest molecular material technology on the surface of the sphere to help football achieve greater strength, stronger rotation and better control.

  China international Zheng Zhi, who traveled far away in England, showed his expectations for the Olympic Games through video. In 1999, Zheng Zhi was 19 years old, and his impact on the Olympic Games with the then Olympic team failed. In 2008, the Olympic Games will be held in Beijing, and he looks forward to flying high with other Olympic teenagers. (End)

Zhiji has released a roadmap for the landing of smart driving products, and will "technology go to sea" in 2024.

Guo Hui said, "The NOA public beta of the city to be opened in October means that Zhiji Automobile has completed the accumulation of other industries for many years in two years, and has continuously set a new record for the fastest mass production of intelligent driving products in the industry."

Guo Hui revealed that IM AD is preparing for the technology to go to sea, and has completed the European localization adaptability training, and the planning algorithm has adapted to the local environment and driving habits. In 2024, with the launch of the first global strategic model LS6 of Zhiji Automobile, Zhiji Automobile will share China’s intelligent driving technology with the world and rapidly expand its overseas influence.

In September, open the public beta of "NOA to high-precision map"; In October, open the "Urban NOA" public beta; In 2024, the "commuting mode" covers 100+ cities across the country; In 2025, IM AD will enter the era of Door to Door (full scene commuting) …

Guo Hui, deputy CTO of Zhiji Automobile and chief scientist of Intelligent Driving, announced the "Landing Roadmap of Intelligent Driving Products of Zhiji Automobile in the Next 3-5 Years" at the "iAd Day Intelligent Driving Conference in Tsinghua" held yesterday (August 16th).

"The NOA public beta of the city that will be opened in October means that Zhiji Automobile has completed the accumulation of head players in other industries for many years in two years (the Zhiji brand was released in 2021), and constantly refreshed the landing record of’ the fastest mass production of intelligent driving products’ in the industry." Guo Hui said, "iAd, the intelligent driver assistance system of Zhiji Automobile, not only surpasses most human drivers in safety, traffic efficiency and road game ability, but also provides users with an experience that is obviously superior to the industry standard."

According to reports, at present, Zhiji Automobile has achieved intelligent driving 3.2 times the safety of human driving. The statistical results of actual driving data show that at present, the number of collision accidents per million kilometers of IM AD is 0.6, which is far lower than the number of collision accidents per million kilometers driven by human beings, which provides a solid security guarantee for the user experience of man-machine driving. IM AD’s safety class false braking frequency is less than once per million kilometers, which is 5 times better than the industry head standard.

In terms of performance experience, IM AD’s delivery standards are equally strict, whether it is "driving performance" such as lane-changing efficiency, driving center performance, driving fluency and driving comfort, or "parking performance" such as parking space recognition ability, parking success rate and parking fluency, all of which exceed the level of the industry’s top players; The success rate of IM AD lane change is as high as 98%, the uncomfortable deceleration is only 1.3 times per thousand kilometers, and the success rate of parking is 97%. It can be called a typical "hexagonal warrior".

In Guo Hui’s view, as a new brand, behind the distance between Zhiji Automobile and its head players in two years is the underlying technical advantage of joint development and two-way empowerment with Momenta-the core competence composed of more efficient architecture, rapidly evolving algorithms and higher utilization of generative data, which will continue to drive the accelerated running of iAd’s intelligent driving evolution.

According to Cao Xudong, CEO of Momenta, iAd is the only dual-intelligent computing platform compatible with Xavier and Orin, with more efficient architecture adaptability, 90% reduction in computing power requirements and 500% improvement in model operation efficiency. Based on this, limited computing power can also achieve global visual integration; Only the scheme of "single lidar+single Orin chip" can also cover all urban scenes and meet the needs of NOA for high-precision maps.

At the same time, IM AD algorithm has faster technical evolution ability. In 2021, OneModel, BEV and Transformer technologies have been implemented, and in 2022, the first car was equipped to achieve mass production, laying the industry-leading technology base. In April 2023, Zhiji Automobile and Momenta released the industry’s first D.L.P artificial intelligence model, which solved the bottleneck problem of cognitive intelligence. The "NOA-to-high-precision map" public beta, which will be launched in September this year, will gradually realize the switching of map technology schemes and realize the uninterrupted assisted driving experience without relying on high-precision maps. On this basis, in 2024, IM AD is expected to enter the application stage of Occupancy occupying the network and realize automatic driving in most scenarios.

Guo Hui revealed that as the pinnacle of intelligent Zhiji automobile, the third model Zhiji LS6, which will be unveiled at Chengdu Auto Show, is equipped with NOA ability to go to high-precision maps. The delivery is equipped with the industry’s first "one-button scene driving" function, which solves the high-frequency pain points in certain scenes of users’ urban travel based on iAd intelligent driving technology.

At present, IM AD is preparing for the technology to go to sea, and has completed the European localization adaptability training, and the planning algorithm has adapted to the local environment and driving habits. In 2024, with the launch of the first global strategic model LS6 of Zhiji Automobile, Zhiji Automobile will share China’s intelligent driving technology with the world and rapidly expand its overseas influence.

The peak of power battery scrapping is coming! The cost of changing batteries is comparable to buying a new car?

  Power battery replacement is expensive, and many car companies regard "battery replacement" as one of the main directions for designing pure electric vehicles in the future.

  New energy vehicles are gradually entering thousands of households, but for some users who ate "crabs" early six or seven years ago and bought pure electric vehicles, they are now facing new troubles — — The cost of changing the battery is more expensive than the original price of buying a car! All-media reporters learned from market interviews that the current service life of automobile power batteries is mostly 5-8 years, which means that the power batteries of the first batch of new energy vehicles put into the market during 2009-2013 have entered the "retirement" period. In view of this situation, let’s see what new tricks car companies have.

  [Change the "electricity" scene] The battery is scrapped and the car is "scrapped"!

  The owner, Mr. Chen, bought a Chery EQ electric car four years ago. After the subsidy, the price of the new car was about 65,000 yuan. Recently, after a heavy rain, the car was soaked in water and the battery was scrapped! After dragging it to the 4S shop, the car dealer told him that he had to replace the battery, but the cost was nearly 70,000 yuan! Mr. Chen was dumbfounded, which is thousands of dollars more expensive than buying a new pure electric car! In this regard, 4S stores also expressed helplessness: because there is no separate subsidy policy for automobile power batteries, the price of battery replacement is very expensive.

  All-media reporters noticed that at present, because the price of "battery replacement" of many independent brands of pure electric vehicles is higher than that of buying new cars, in the event of battery failure, most car owners give up replacing batteries and directly scrap their vehicles. It is also very expensive to change batteries for imported new energy vehicles. Some people have calculated that a Tesla Model S with a price of 700,000 yuan to 800,000 yuan needs more than 300,000 yuan to replace batteries, so you can buy a BMW.

  [Market survey]

  The battery is guaranteed for 5~6 years, but there are constraints.

  All-media reporters noticed that the current state requires the key components of new energy vehicles (batteries, electronic controls, motors) to provide a warranty of not less than 5 years or 100,000 kilometers. During the warranty period, the owner’s maintenance is completely free.

  The reporter searched a number of automobile brands and found that BYD Qin currently provides "a six-year or 150,000-kilometer warranty for the whole vehicle and a lifetime warranty for the battery"; SAIC Roewe has provided E50 vehicles with 3-year and 100,000-kilometer warranties, as well as 5-year and 100,000-kilometer battery core component warranties, and some models also have battery decay warranties; BAIC provides a five-year unlimited-kilometer commitment for the battery of E150ev, and users who purchase the new EX260/EU260 before April this year can enjoy the lifetime warranty service of the battery. Generally speaking, at present, the mainstream new energy vehicle companies only guarantee the whole vehicle, and only a few manufacturers have an extra warranty for the battery for a long time. In terms of foreign automakers, Tesla has just changed the warranty terms of the Model S drive and battery pack of electric vehicles to 8 years of unlimited mileage.

  Despite this, the cost of replacing batteries as high as 60,000 to 70,000 yuan is still in the minds of car owners. If the warranty period ends after 5~8 years, and the life of the battery just ends, then the owner will have to make a headache choice between replacing the battery or scrapping the vehicle; If the battery is within the service life and there is a problem that is not covered by the warranty (such as soaking in water), it may be necessary to break up the battery after seeing that other parts of the vehicle are still in good condition, because the high battery replacement bill is very "disgusting".

  [Current Scheme]

  The manufacturer’s policy encourages "replacement" in three or four years.

  However, replacing the whole battery is not the only solution. The engineer of JAC pure electric vehicle clarified to the reporter: With the development of technology, if there is a problem with the current battery, it is no longer necessary to replace the whole battery as it was a few years ago. Now it is only necessary to replace one or several corresponding faulty batteries. The engineer told the reporter that the cost of a single battery is only a few hundred dollars, and the working hours are up to one or two thousand yuan. In general, it is cheaper than the engine maintenance of fuel vehicles.

  However, there are many problems in the use of electric vehicles, and the high cost of batteries still inevitably becomes a resistance for many people to buy. The reporter noticed that many car companies started the "buy-back plan" to solve the problems of fast depreciation and fast battery loss of pure electric vehicles, and encouraged consumers to replace new pure electric vehicles in three or four years. For example, at the beginning of the listing of Yundu New Energy, a three-year repurchase policy was introduced at the same time, and the guaranteed price of its pure electric vehicle was 50% of the original price.

  All-media reporters also noticed from the second-hand market that the current depreciation of second-hand new energy vehicles is faster than that of ordinary fuel vehicles. For example, in 2013-2014, the price of Beiqi E150EV in the second-hand market ranged from 20,000 to 40,000 yuan. After the updated Beiqi EX360 went on the market, manufacturers also complied with the repurchase and replacement policy. As long as the car condition of the old pure electric vehicle meets the official standards, it can offset the purchase price of 39,800 yuan, which is much more cost-effective than direct scrapping. In doing so, manufacturers not only encourage consumers to trade in old ones for new ones, but also help consumers avoid the embarrassment of finding out that the battery life has ended after six or seven years of use and being forced to scrap their vehicles.

  [Car enterprise goal]

  Load a detachable battery

  Perhaps it is precisely because the high cost of batteries has aroused the concerns of users, and many car companies regard "battery replacement" as one of the main directions for designing pure electric vehicles in the future. It only takes three to five minutes, and a "blood tank is empty" battery is directly removed and replaced with a new battery with full charge. Although the power exchange technology has not been verified by a large number of landing operations, this idea is favored by many new energy vehicle companies.

  Traditional car companies, such as BAIC New Energy, have taken the lead in distributing in several cities across the country since last year to carry out the service of "changing power stations". After the taxi industry has achieved good response, this year, the "changing power" model has been extended to the field of pure electric private cars in Beijing. As for the new car-making enterprises, it has been included in the research and development category. Previously, Tesla had announced a 15-minute power exchange technology; Weilai, the representative of China’s new car manufacturers, plans to build more than 1,100 power stations nationwide in 2020, hoping to let car owners realize "changing electricity within 3 kilometers" in the central areas of first-tier cities such as Beishangguangshen and Shenzhen; Another new car manufacturer, Chehejia’s first SEV, its biggest highlight is the use of detachable batteries, which is also the official claim that they do not rely on the capital of charging piles.

  China new energy vehicles ushered in the first peak of power battery scrapping.

  In 2009, China officially launched the demonstration and promotion of "10 cities and 1000 vehicles" new energy vehicles.

  From 2012 to 2014, demonstration applications were conducted in the north, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, and new energy vehicles entered the era of private consumption.

  In 2015, the sales volume of new energy vehicles in China was 331,000, of which 247,000 were pure electric vehicles, ranking first in the world.

  In 2017, the sales volume of new energy vehicles in China reached 777,000, ranking first in the world for three consecutive years.

  In 2018, the first batch of new energy vehicle battery systems will enter the "seven-year itch" elimination period, which will usher in the first peak of power battery scrapping.

  In recent years, the relevant state departments have paid extra attention to the market guidance of battery recycling. At the same time, the data of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology shows that the first peak of power battery scrapping will be ushered in 2018. Gao Yunhu, director of the Department of Energy Conservation and Comprehensive Utilization of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, pointed out that it is necessary to accelerate the recycling of power batteries for new energy vehicles and implement the formulation and implementation of pilot programs. On August 1st, the Interim Measures for the Management of Recycle and Utilization of Power Batteries for New Energy Vehicles was promulgated and implemented. In September, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the List of Qualified Enterprises (First Batch).

The spy war drama "Battlefield Lost Love": Do not forget your initiative mind, Remember the Mission.

  Since August 15th, the TV series "Battlefield Fantasy" started broadcasting on CCTV 8, and the viewing performance broke through 1%, and it has been rising all the way since then. Directed by Hai Yi and starring Apollo, Wu Qianyu, Gao Shuguang and Liu Dekai, the play tells the story of the life-and-death struggle between the young revolutionaries headed by He Wenqing and the Kuomintang and the Japanese around the economic war after the failure of the Great Revolution.

  The hero, He Wenqing, was originally a battalion commander of the Northern Expeditionary Army. Later, he was imprisoned by the enemy and released from prison with recommendation. However, he was still wrongly handled in the organization and expelled from the party during the White Terror period. After leaving the organization to become a businessman, He Wenqing still carried out the instructions of the Party to the letter, faced the strong enemy with dauntless spirit, and solved problems with perseverance and wisdom. According to the director, the original intention of "Battlefield Fantasy" is to create a communist party person who is "Do not forget your initiative mind and mindful of his mission": the protagonist He Wenqing did not go to extremes or indulge in ordinary things after being expelled from the Party, but "saved the country by curves" and continued to realize the revolutionary ideal with excellent business talents.

  In terms of cast, Apollo, who plays He Wenqing, is a powerful actor familiar to the audience. In the 2001 martial arts TV series Xiao Eleven Lang, Apollo played the role of "Lian Chengbi", which has remained in the hearts of many post-80s audiences. In recent years, he has performed well in costume dramas such as Shui Yue Dong Tian, Qin Shi Ming Yue, and General on the Top. In 2011, Apollo starred in CCTV-8 TV series "Soul of the Sea", which got good ratings. Wu Qianyu, a young actress in Hong Kong, is one-eighth of Chinese-French mixed blood. In the play, she plays Fan Fengjin, an overseas Chinese with a background of studying abroad, but her temperament is very consistent.

  In the last century, Liu Dekai, who entered the dreams of thousands of families and countless young girls with Qiong Yao dramas such as "A Curtain of Dreams", is still old and handsome as Fan Rongnan, a patriotic overseas Chinese. Gao Shuguang, an actor, changed the positive image of the past, and performed a wily Fuxing Club leader.

  It is reported that although "Battlefield Romance" is a red theme, it has some light comedy elements. In particular, the emotional line between the man and the woman, from tell it to the judge to the partner who fought side by side, their love stories are intertwined in the tense spy front, which has played a role in relaxing the atmosphere and changing the rhythm.

  Different from the general fictional spy war drama, the plot of the spy war in this drama is basically based on the real historical events in the 1930s, which restores the customs of the underground party, overseas Chinese and business circles in Fujian, and to some extent, sees the big picture from the small, which truly reproduces the scene of that year. The play jumped out of the same theme, and the story line closely revolved around the historical truth of how the Red Army crushed the enemy’s economic blockade. According to the director, he hopes to explore these unknown details of real history through the hero’s special experience of using shopping malls as battlefields.

Interpretation of listed car companies’ financial reports in the first half of the year; Car companies at home and abroad face profit challenges together.

  In the first half of 2019, car companies at home and abroad had a hard time. According to the semi-annual/second-quarter financial reports published by listed car companies, many car companies have experienced performance decline and even losses due to multiple factors such as declining sales and high R&D investment. In order to stop loss in time, some car companies also try to control costs by laying off employees, closing factories or reducing R&D investment to reverse the situation.

  ■ Reduce the annual sales target with a view to stable development.

  In the first half of the year, the word "decline" in the domestic auto market was the first, which was reflected in the financial reports of listed auto companies, that is, everyone’s life was generally difficult.

  Geely Automobile, which has made great strides in the past two years, is quite ambitious to be an "independent brother". However, since the end of 2018, Geely has also fallen into the dilemma of declining sales growth. According to public data, from January to July 2019, the cumulative total sales volume of Geely Automobile was 743,000 units, down 16% year-on-year. Earlier, Geely Automobile also announced that its annual sales target for 2019 will be lowered by 10% from 1.51 million units to 1.36 million units.

  According to the group profit warning issued by Geely Automobile recently, as of June 30, 2019, Geely Automobile’s net profit in the first half of the year decreased by about 40% year-on-year, far lower than the net profit of 6.67 billion yuan in the same period last year. For the decline in profit, Geely believes that this is mainly due to the fact that the overall sales volume of the group’s automobiles fell beyond expectations and actively reduced dealer inventory.

  Changan Automobile, which is also affected by the decline in sales, still cannot escape the "fate" of performance loss this quarter. According to official data, in the first half of 2019, the net profit loss of Changan Automobile was 1.9 billion to 2.6 billion yuan, which was as high as 218.04%-261.53% compared with the same period of last year. In the first half of the year, Changan’s joint venture and independent sectors all performed poorly, and the cumulative sales volume decreased by 31.65% year-on-year to 825,000 units.

  Compared with Geely and Changan, whose sales declined, Great Wall Motor, which achieved a contrarian growth in sales in the first half of the year, also faced a profit problem.

  In the first half of 2019, Great Wall Motor sold a total of 493,500 new cars, a year-on-year increase of 4.7%. Despite this, Great Wall Motor still experienced a double decline in operating income and net profit in the first half of the year. According to the 2019 interim results forecast of Great Wall Motor, in the first half of this year, Great Wall Motor achieved operating income of about 41.38 billion yuan, down about 15% year-on-year; The net profit was about RMB 1.57 billion, down about 58% year-on-year; The net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies after deducting non-recurring gains and losses was about RMB 1.24 billion, down about 65% year-on-year.

  In this regard, Great Wall Motor said: "During the reporting period, the company increased the product preferential quota to benefit consumers, and continued to increase brand promotion and R&D investment, resulting in a year-on-year decline in net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies." Based on the market environment in the first half of the year, Great Wall Motor also lowered its sales target for 2019 from 1.2 million to 1.07 million to keep the overall sales healthy, stable and sustainable.

  In the first half of this year, Haima Automobile, jiangling motors and FAW Car also suffered a sharp year-on-year decline in net profit.

  ■ The profitability of overseas car companies has been greatly tightened.

  The downturn in China’s auto market has also greatly tightened the global revenue of many multinational auto companies.

  Daimler, which is famous for making money, has suffered a "long-lost" profit loss. According to public reports, in the first half of this year, Daimler’s revenue increased by 2% year-on-year to 82.35 billion euros, but its net profit fell by 78% year-on-year to 907 million euros. The report shows that Daimler’s expenditure on special projects increased significantly in the first half of this year, mainly for further disposal of diesel vehicle exhaust emissions and recall of Mercedes-Benz cars equipped with defective airbags produced by Takada Company of Japan. In the second quarter of this year, Daimler’s special project expenditure reached 4.2 billion euros, which directly affected the company’s performance — — In the second quarter, earnings before interest and tax lost 1.6 billion euros, which was the first quarterly performance loss of Daimler in nine years.

  The decline in sales has further affected Daimler’s profitability. In the second quarter of this year, the overall sales volume of Daimler’s passenger car sector decreased by 3% to 575,000 units. To this end, Daimler has repeatedly issued profit warnings; He also said that in order to improve the profitability, the research and development costs of Mercedes-Benz cars will be greatly reduced by 2025, and the alliance with competitors will be strengthened.

  Under the tide of the new four modernizations of automobiles, large automobile groups don’t want to fall behind in the above fields. This directly brings about the overweight of R&D investment.

  Thanks to the steady performance of the China market, in the second quarter of this year, BMW achieved a cumulative sales increase of 1.5% to 647,000 vehicles, and its revenue also increased by 3% to 25.715 billion euros. Despite this, the company’s earnings before interest and tax fell by 28.4%, from 2.866 billion euros to 2.053 billion euros.

  In this regard, BMW Group said that the company has been expanding its investment in pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles, and continues to optimize internal combustion engines. The reason for the decline in profits is that the increase in expenditure on electric vehicles has lowered the profit margin.

  Also suffering from the decline in performance is Ford Motor Company. The nearly "Waterloo" sales performance in the China market has made this century-old automobile brand a little less spirited. According to the public financial report of Ford Motor Company, in the second quarter of this year, Ford’s total revenue was $38.85 billion, down from $38.92 billion in the same period last year. Net income fell to $148 million, down 86% year on year. Among them, Ford’s loss in China market reached $155 million. In addition, Ford Motor Company also said that its net income plummeted in the second quarter and was also affected by its business restructuring in Europe and South America.

  ■ Controlling cost and improving bicycle profit are the keys.

  Several families are happy and worried. In a downward trend, there are always many strong players who are growing against the trend.

  In the first fiscal quarter of fiscal year 2020 (April-June), Toyota Motor’s net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders was 682.974 billion yen, a year-on-year increase of 3.91%; Operating income was 7.65 trillion yen, a year-on-year increase of 3.85%. 

  The increase in profit is mainly due to Toyota’s good sales performance at home and abroad in the first half of the year. In the first half of this year, Toyota’s sales in Japan increased by 3.6% year-on-year to 1.212 million units, and overseas sales increased by 1.5% year-on-year to 4.1 million units.

  At the same time, cost control and high bicycle profit have also become effective ways for car companies to achieve profitability.

  In the first half of this year, the cumulative global sales volume of Volkswagen Group was 5,365,300 vehicles, down 2.8% year-on-year. Despite the decline in overall car sales, Volkswagen Group still achieved a substantial increase in profit value, driven by the SUV with higher profit margin of Volkswagen brand and the increase in sales of Porsche brand. The report shows that the sales revenue of the Volkswagen Group in the first half of the year reached 125.2 billion euros, a year-on-year increase of 4.9%; Operating profit was 9 billion euros, a year-on-year increase of 10.3%.

  GM, on the other hand, relied on cost control to achieve a steady performance in the second quarter. With the strong performance of the North American market and effective cost control, GM achieved steady performance in the second quarter: the company’s net income reached $36.1 billion during the reporting period; Among them, the net profit reached 2.4 billion US dollars, up 1.6% year-on-year; Diluted earnings per share was $1.66. In addition, GM said that the measures to improve cost efficiency through transformation have been effective and have achieved cost savings of $1.1 billion.

  In fact, domestic car companies also try to control costs to achieve light travel. According to a recent report by Reuters, Shenlong Automobile is planning to sell its first and second factories in Wuhan, and gradually start to lay off employees, so as to put more funds into marketing.

The most comprehensive data tells you who is the real Japanese animation brother!

Special feature of 1905 film network The movie "Doraemon", a theatrical version, arrived late. Unfortunately, Doraemon: Nobita’s New Dinosaur, the Doraemon movie series with the highest rating (ticketing platform), has not broken through the 50 million mark so far. Judging from the follow-up trend, this movie should not break through 100 million yuan and will become the worst box office work in this series in recent years.


Not to mention that in 2015, the animated film Doraemon: Walk with Me grabbed 530 million box office, and every year, a theatrical version of a big movie can have 100 million box office bases. In 2018, Doraemon: Treasure Island of Daxiong reached 209 million box office results.


Perhaps without the protection of Children’s Day and summer file, this family fun animation seems to be less energetic. On the one hand, there will be fewer opportunities for parents to take their children to watch cartoons during this schedule; On the other hand, the repeated release of Japanese animated films, such as "Baokemeng: The Counter-attack Evolution of Super Dreams" and "Digital Baby: The Last Evolution", also diluted some audiences to some extent.


For a long time, animated films have been the first choice for mainland film companies to introduce Japanese films. Such works, which are derived from mature IP, can largely guarantee their box office revenue. For Japanese animation, it is actually subdivided into theatrical animation and animated film. So, how to distinguish the two? 

Theater animation is a TV animation based on this IP, which is derived, for example, Detective Conan series and Huang Jincheng of Navigator released in China. They are independent chapters, but they are related to TV animation.Animated movies are completely original animations, such as those well known.My Neighbor Totoro’s Your NameSmokeFlowersWait.


Many people will regard Doraemon: Walk with Me as a theatrical animation, but strictly speaking, it belongs to the category of animated films. Since the Japanese film market picked up in the mainland in 2015, the theatrical animation has been the main force in Japanese films. From the first theatrical animated film Detective Conan: Sunflower of Fire in 2015 to the current Doraemon: Nobita’s New Dinosaur, there are over 28 theatrical animations to meet the audience.


In addition, Japanese box office champion Infinite Train with the Blade of Ghost Extinction, Kyoto Animation animation Violet Eternal Garden and Night of Destiny 3 are also expected to be released in the mainland in early 2021. So, what are the performances of these films in the China market?

 

N cases of "most"

Since 2015, all Japanese theatrical animated films have been released in the mainland, including IP with childhood feelings such as Doraemon and Conan, as well as bloody "migrant workers" such as Naruto and Navigator, and even smaller paintings such as "Violet Eternal Garden" and "Night of Destiny". These works also let us see the diversification of Japanese animation industry. Among these IPS, Doraemon series is definitely the most powerful "shoulder handle". Since 2016, there will be a work to meet the mainland audience every year. In addition to this year, due to the epidemic, the local release plan in Japan was postponed, which led to the domestic release date moving from the "June 1" summer file to the New Year’s release. 


Judging from the box office data, from 2016 to 2019, the box office results of this series of films all exceeded 100 million by the bonus of holidays, especially Doraemon: Treasure Island of Daxiong in 2018 became the first Japanese theatrical animated film with a box office of over 200 million.


It can be seen that Doraemon is still the blue fat man who is suitable for all ages and has been growing up with different generations. What can compete with this box office is another national animation, Detective Conan. In 2015, Japanese films reappeared in the China film market, and the film Detective Conan: Sunflower of Fire became the first theatrical animated film to be introduced.


Since then, this series has also become "oftengreenTree ".Except for 2017Detective Conan: Tang Hong’s Love SongNot being introduced, and the release of Japan in 2020 was postponed to 2021, Conan has also become an animated image that audiences meet every year. The market response of this series was not as enthusiastic as Doraemon at first. The total box office results in 2015 and 2016 were only 110 million, but since 2018, it has sprung up suddenly and the box office has repeatedly exceeded 100 million, especially in 2019.Detective Conan: the fist of the Qing DynastyUp to now, with a score of 231 million, it has won the highest box office in the mainland of Japan’s theatrical animated film.


If Doraemon and Detective Conan belong to the carnival of every age, then the box office of Naruto and Nautical King shows the "fighting power" of otaku. With the ending of the original Naruto, Naruto Theater Edition: Biography of Bo Ren became the first theatrical animated film to break 100 million at the box office in the Mainland. At that time, when the film was released, there was no large-scale publicity, but direct audience marketing was adopted, which successfully brought the "otaku" into the cinema. 


Doing the same thing, the "Nautical King" series has also successfully achieved good box office income. These two animated films can be said to be typical "fan movies" in some ways. Its limitation is that it is not a fan of the cartoon, so it is difficult to get into the inside of the story, and you can only look at the doorway. It can be seen from the data of "Huang Jincheng of the Sea King" and "Naruto Theater Edition" that the male and female audiences are constant at 56%: 44%, and most of them are concentrated in the crowd aged 20-24.


Looking at these animated films whose original works have been published, the equally well-known Pokémon series, Cherry Maruko and Crayon Shinchan are the most disappointing. Especially, the Pokémon series, the two works currently released, both have a box office of only 30 million. The "yellow-skinned electric mouse" that the audience thinks is the most cute can’t even move the box office.


On the contrary, "Digital Baby: The Last Evolution", which is also a teenager’s feeling, has captured 125 million box office domineering, becoming the highest box office in this type of film in 2020. Of course, the most unexpected thing is that "Cherry Maruko" and "Crayon Shinchan", two animation brands with great national representatives, have only introduced one theatrical animation work each. 


On the contrary, the animation brand Destiny’s Night, which is more niche in itself, has always maintained the most stable output, Destiny’s Night — — The goblet of heaven: the flower of bad omen and the night of destiny — — The Cup of Heaven II: The Lost Butterfly has achieved about 30 million box office results, so it is no wonder that the introduction of Destiny’s Night 3 is under way. 

Who’s next?

At present, animated films from Makoto Shinkai and Miyazaki Hayao are introduced frequently. At the same time, the works of authors such as Mamoru Hosoda (Future) and Ayumu Watanabe (Son of the Sea Beast) are gradually recognized by the audience. However, it cannot be ignored that the theatrical animated films will still be the main force of Japanese animated films in the China film market in the future.


To a large extent, the fan base of these animations can guarantee its basic box office income. At present, Detective Conan: Scary Bullet, which was adapted from Japan in 2021, has been announced to be introduced by Huace Film, and I believe it will meet the audience at an appropriate time.


Of course, the introduction of Doraemon’s 2021 theatrical version Doraemon: Nobita’s Little War in the Universe will not be abandoned because of this box office failure. In addition, Huace Film also officially announced the introduction of "Silver Soul: The Final". This will be the first time that the cinema in China mainland has introduced the animated film "Silver Soul". I wonder if this relatively old IP can drive fans’ feelings? 


The theatrical animation "Infinite Train with Ghost Blade", which is about to break the box office champion of Japanese film history, is also expected to be introduced. Although this brand is not as well-known as Naruto and Voyage King in the China market at present, it is expected to impress the curiosity of many audiences other than the original fans when it is released in the mainland with its hot box office results in Japan.


The new work Natsume Friends Account, which once won 115 million box office, Natsume Friends Account: Shiqi and Suspicious Visitors also has the opportunity to let mainland audiences see the moment when Niangkou Sansan sells cute on the big screen. These kinds of theatrical animated films, while selling feelings, how to make something new may be concerned by fans and ordinary audiences. In particular, whether they can continue the past Japanese theatrical animation box office in the future may be the most worth looking forward to.


Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Severely punish the fraudulent behavior of new energy vehicles and standardize the order of industrial development

  CCTV News:According to the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, after the Ministry of Finance publicly exposed some typical cases of serious "fraudulent compensation" of new energy vehicles to the public in September 2016, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced the administrative punishment decision on Suzhou Jinlong and other enterprises on the portal website on December 20, giving four enterprises involved in "having a license without a car" such punishment measures as "ordering to stop producing and selling problem models, suspending the application qualification of the recommended catalogue of new energy vehicles, and ordering to carry out rectification for six months".

  Since then, the relevant departments in charge of the promotion and application of new energy vehicles in China have made a clear decision on the handling of the "fraudulent compensation" incident of new energy vehicles that the society is concerned about according to their own functions, conveying the attitude and determination of the state to attach great importance to and seriously deal with the "fraudulent compensation" incident of new energy vehicles, and standardizing the development order and improving the development environment through special rectification work and further improving policy measures and supervision mechanism.

  First, the central and local governments should work together to seriously deal with the enterprises and relevant personnel involved.

  How to deal with the "fraudulent compensation" incident of new energy vehicles in China has been highly concerned by the whole society and even the international automobile industry since the incident was exposed in January this year. the State Council attaches great importance to it and demands serious investigation and punishment of fraudulent compensation. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance and other departments and local governments have joined forces to carry out comprehensive and thorough special inspection actions, severely punish enterprises that find problems according to laws and regulations, not only expose the enterprises involved and relevant personnel, but also give punishment measures such as recovering "fraudulent compensation" funds, imposing fines, canceling the qualification of financial subsidies for new energy vehicles, canceling/suspending the production qualification of enterprises and announcing catalogue models according to the seriousness of the circumstances. Those who violate the law shall be investigated for legal responsibility according to law.

  The ministries and commissions will work together to seriously deal with the enterprises involved. From February to March this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance and other four ministries and commissions jointly carried out special inspections on the implementation of the promotion and application of new energy vehicles and the management of the use of financial funds. In late March, Miao Wei, Minister of Industry and Information Technology, publicly stated that the "fraudulent compensation" behavior of new energy vehicles should be dealt with seriously and found to be disposed of together. On March 25th, the CCTV news channel "Chao Wen Tian Xia" reported the investigation of "fraudulent compensation" of new energy, focusing on the alleged "fraudulent compensation" of Suzhou Jim West. At the beginning of September, the Ministry of Finance exposed some typical cases of serious "cheating" to the public. On December 20th, the portal website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a decision on administrative punishment for Suzhou Jinlong and other enterprises. The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology have successively issued punishment documents for new energy automobile manufacturers involved in the problems of "no car with a license", "car without electricity" and "inconsistent logo", among which Suzhou Jimixi, who has the most serious fraud, was given the punishment of "canceling the qualification of vehicle production". This is the first enterprise whose production qualification has been cancelled since the implementation of the vehicle production enterprise and product announcement management system. The above measures highlight the country’s rectification of the field of new energy vehicles.Cheat "problem, the determination to standardize the development of the industry.

  The local government followed up and investigated the responsibility of the relevant personnel according to law. In addition to the serious handling of the enterprises involved at the national level according to law, the local government subsequently initiated legal procedures to investigate the responsibility of the relevant personnel according to law according to the verification results. According to the inspection results of the Ministry of Finance, Jiangsu Province further verified and implemented the responsibilities of relevant functional departments and staff, and the personnel involved were handed over to procuratorial organs, public security departments and administrative supervision departments; Responsible persons of relevant enterprises and government workers suspected of committing crimes shall be investigated for criminal responsibility according to law; According to the law, arrest the relevant personnel of Suzhou Public Security Traffic Police Detachment Vehicle Management Office who are suspected of abusing their powers, and arrest the relevant personnel such as Yang Level, the actual controller of Suzhou Jim West Bus Manufacturing Co., Ltd. who are suspected of fraud; The relevant personnel of Suzhou Jinlong were dismissed and transferred.

  Second, carry out special rectification, and the industry shows a good development trend.

  If the purpose of severely punishing the cheating behavior of new energy vehicles is to eliminate the "black sheep" in China’s new energy vehicle industry, then the special rectification work after the special verification will undoubtedly play a positive role in standardizing and promoting the development of new energy vehicles in China. Based on the development of new energy vehicles in China this year, after this round of rectification, the development of the whole industry has been gradually standardized, enterprises have paid more attention to technological innovation, and the market has maintained steady growth. China’s new energy vehicle industry has entered a more rational and healthy development stage.

  Relevant enterprises actively carry out rectification. Since the special rectification work was carried out, most enterprises that have been punished have set up special rectification teams to carry out comprehensive rectification work. First, pursue the responsibility of the responsible person who caused the problem vehicle; Second, return the financial pre-allocated funds and pay the fine according to the prescribed procedures and requirements; The third is to replenish or replace batteries, motors and other parts for vehicles with problems of "lack of electricity in vehicles" and "inconsistent signs" to make them meet the requirements of product consistency; Fourth, take practical measures to promote idle vehicles to put into actual operation; Fifth, earnestly implement the provisions of vehicle production, strengthen the consistency of product production and the management of motor vehicle factory certificate; Sixth, standardize financial management procedures. At the same time, relevant departments of Chongqing, Zhejiang and other local governments have strengthened the supervision of problem enterprises and urged enterprises to speed up the implementation of rectification requirements to ensure that rectification is in place.

  Strengthen the supervision and inspection of new energy vehicles. From November 21 to 25 this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology entrusted experts from the Automobile Association and China Automobile Technology Center to supervise and inspect the production behavior of new energy automobile manufacturers, and conducted on-site inspections on enterprises such as Xiamen Jinlong, Xiamen Jinlv, BYD, Zhongtong Bus, Anhui An Kai and Chery Automobile. The expert group conducted a comprehensive inspection of the certificate management, spare parts procurement, production inspection and financial management of the enterprise by means of seminars and random sampling of sample cars, focusing on checking whether the certificate management is one car and one certificate, and whether it is in compliance, and checking the vehicle products randomly to see that they are consistent with the announcement parameters.

  Enterprises increased investment and the market developed rapidly. According to the investigation of more than 40 new energy vehicle manufacturers by China Automobile Association and China Automobile Technology Research Center, it is found that enterprises have generally increased their investment in technology research and development, operation management and quality assurance, accelerated product upgrading, and enhanced their research and development capabilities. Most enterprises have established a monitoring platform for the quality operation of new energy vehicle products. The energy density of lithium-ion power battery reaches 220 WHr/kg, and the system price drops to 2 yuan/WHr. The power density of the driving motor exceeds 3 kW/kg, which is basically equivalent to the international level; The charging efficiency, power density and output voltage range of the fast charging system have been steadily improved, and the functions of dual-gun charging and mobile payment have been realized, and the cost has decreased by more than 30% compared with 2015. From January to November this year, the production and sales of new energy vehicles reached 427,000 and 402,000 respectively, up by 59.0% and 60.4% respectively, and remained the first in the world.

  Third, improve measures and mechanisms to standardize the order of industrial development.

  While rectifying China’s new energy vehicles, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Finance and other departments in charge of the promotion and application of new energy vehicles have adjusted subsidy policies, strengthened supervision, and further improved the policy environment for industrial development.

  Adjust the financial subsidy policy. In view of the problems exposed in the special inspection, such as excessive subsidy standards for some vehicles, excessive dependence of enterprises on subsidy policies, low technical performance of subsidized new energy vehicles and low actual utilization rate of some vehicles, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other four ministries and commissions put forward a plan to adjust and improve the subsidy policies for new energy vehicles on the basis of consulting relevant enterprises and third-party institutions. First, on the premise of maintaining the overall stability of the subsidy policy from 2016 to 2020, appropriately adjust the subsidy methods for passenger cars and special vehicles, raise the technical threshold, encourage technological progress, set the upper limit of central and local subsidies, and prevent the phenomenon that the local supporting subsidy standards are too high. The second is to improve the allocation method of subsidy funds. From 2016, the subsidy funds for the purchase of new energy vehicles will be changed from pre-payment to post-liquidation, and the review and promotion of local fund application reports will be strengthened. Third, in combination with industrial development and technological progress, we should appropriately raise the requirements of recommended catalogue models, establish a dynamic adjustment mechanism, and give full play to the guiding role of subsidy policies in helping the excellent and the strong.

  Improve the entry threshold for enterprises. As the competent department of industry, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology revised the Regulations on the Access Management of New Energy Vehicle Manufacturers and Products, strengthened safety requirements, raised access thresholds, and curbed the scattered development of the industry. At present, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has reviewed and approved the Regulations on the Administration of New Energy Vehicle Manufacturers and Products Access, which will be officially released in the near future. The new regulations improve the entry threshold from the aspects of enterprise design and development ability, manufacturing ability, after-sales service ability, product technical performance and quality assurance ability, and strengthen the safety supervision requirements, which can effectively improve product quality and safety level.

  Improve the supervision and management mechanism. In order to ensure the implementation of national policies, prevent the recurrence of "fraudulent compensation" and effectively promote the healthy and sustainable development of new energy vehicles in China, we should improve three major guarantee mechanisms: first, establish a real-time adjustment mechanism for subsidy policies for new energy vehicles, increase the assessment conditions for linking vehicle mileage with subsidies, improve the technical conditions of subsidized vehicles, appropriately reduce the subsidy amount and promote the application of vehicles according to technological progress and market conditions; The second is to establish a real-time monitoring mechanism for the operation of new energy vehicles, improve the monitoring platform at the central, local and enterprise levels, ensure the safety of vehicle use, and strengthen the assessment of vehicle use; The third is to improve the supervision system after the event, implement a unified coding system for power batteries, strengthen market sampling verification of new energy automobile products, and increase penalties for violations of laws and regulations.

Guangdong’s "Football Aid Xinjiang" ignites Kashgar’s youth football dream.

  Tianshan Net News (Reporter Fan Guobin reports) Recently, in the final of the second "Pomegranate Seed Cup" Youth Men’s Football Championship (junior high school group) in Shufu County, Kashgar, the middle school football team in Langan Town of the county won the championship and took the stage to receive the award. At that moment, the little players hugged each other tightly with their coaches and teachers and cried with joy.

  The "Pomegranate Seed Cup" youth football match is one of the "works" of Guangdong football aid to Xinjiang. The name of the competition is "Pomegranate Seed", which means that children of all ethnic groups hold each other tightly through football. Over the past two years, this competition has attracted more than 800 students and teachers from more than 20 schools.

  Guangdong’s aid to Xinjiang innovation puts forward "football aid to Xinjiang"

  Football aid to Xinjiang is a sports concept first put forward in 19 provinces and cities in Guangdong Province. Since its launch in February 2017, Shufu County, which is supported by Guangzhou counterparts, has taken the lead in setting up 10 middle schools and 12 primary schools as outlets for youth football, building football venues, providing basic equipment and equipment, and carrying out campus football training, so that more and more teenagers in Kashgar like football.

  In Kupuse Village Primary School in Saybagh Township, Shufu County, every day after school, a group of students will play football in the artificial grass football field, sweating like rain. "There are 346 students in our school. A year ago, all the children played football in the clay court. Now they are playing football in the artificial grass football field. They are happy." Yong Kaiyuan, the principal of Kupuse Village Primary School, said that children can use the advanced football field thanks to the football aid policy of Guangdong Province.

  At present, No.3 Middle School, Mingde Primary School and Saybag Township Central Primary School in Shufu County have become the teaching practice bases of the Football College of Guangzhou Institute of Physical Education. Ten middle schools and 12 primary schools in Shufu County have been included in the football training system, and more than 500 young people of all ethnic groups have received professional football training all the year round.

  In 2018, the Guangdong Provincial Sports Bureau issued the "Guangdong Football Aid Xinjiang Work Plan" to integrate strength resources and increase investment in football aid Xinjiang. In that year, the Guangdong Provincial Sports Bureau invested 2 million yuan in aid to Xinjiang, which was used for the reconstruction of the basic football field and the construction of facilities in the aided areas.

  "Our goal is to strive to build four to six artificial grass football fields for sevens and related supporting projects in Kashgar within three years." Wang Weidong, deputy inspector of Guangdong Sports Bureau, said.

  Not only that, Guangdong Football Aid to Xinjiang also helps Xinjiang to build a football training structure, competition structure and transportation system. Through campus football training, youth men’s football championships, campus leagues covering Shufu County, Jiashi County and the Third Division of the Corps, and sending talents to football schools in Xinjiang and Guangdong, the youth football cause in Kashgar has been gradually promoted in depth.

  Plant a seed of hope

  In February 2017, Wang Liang of the Football Center of Guangdong Provincial Sports Bureau came to Kashgar as a professional football technician to participate in the aid work in Xinjiang.

  Since coming to Kashgar, Wang Liang has spent half his time teaching football in rural primary schools. "Every time I go to school, the children are waiting for me at the school gate. Everyone is vying to help me with my football equipment. I can really feel the children’s love for football."

  Sepura Nurmaiti, a 10-year-old fourth-grade student of Mingde Primary School in Shufu County, loved playing football since childhood. Recently, he got a brand-new football donated by Guangdong Sports Lottery Management Center, and then received football shoes from Wang Liang. He was very excited.

  Sepura’s parents are not around, and she is one of the few boarding children in Mingde Primary School. She is usually taciturn. After Wang Liang went to Mingde Primary School to carry out football training, he teamed up to play football. Sepra’s "Football Dream" was activated. He was originally shy and introverted, and now he plays football on the court with his classmates every day, learning the national common language and learning cultural knowledge together.

  "With football, he is like a completely different person, positive, sunny, cheerful and lovely. The purpose of football aid to Xinjiang is to plant a seed of hope in the hearts of children and bring about positive energy changes. " Seeing that his efforts won the harvest, Wang Liang showed a gratified smile. 

  In July 2018, the Guangdong Provincial Sports Bureau and the Guangdong Frontier Command organized a 24-member Kashgar youth football team to go to Guangdong Province for a 17-day competition exchange. 

  In order to participate in the competition, the little players braved the heat to practice their skills, while studying hard the classroom knowledge and learning the national common language.

  In the end, each of the 24 children got the opportunity to go to Guangdong to participate in the competition and exchange. When the little player boarded the flight to Guangzhou, everyone was very excited, and a happy smile permeated everyone’s face.

  There are successors in the development of football in Xinjiang

  In addition to Wang Liang, in the past two years, Guangdong Province has continuously sent football coaches to Xinjiang for team formation, coaching and referee training to help cultivate local football talents.

  Guangzhou Institute of Physical Education and Guangzhou Fuli Football Club have set up three football teaching bases and youth training cooperation institutions in Mingde Primary School, No.3 Middle School and Saybag Township Central Primary School in Shufu County. Three experts from Guangdong Provincial Department of Education and Guangzhou Institute of Physical Education went to Kashgar to hold a training course for coaches and referees, with 70 trainees. Among them, Imran Tursun of Mingde Primary School stood out from the selection of Fuli Chelsea Football School and entered the school in September 2018. Evergrande Real Madrid Football School has 97 Xinjiang children, most of whom are from Kashgar.

  Seeing that my younger brother, Imran Tursun, has been admitted to R&F Football School, my older brother, Imran Mohammad Aili, who is now in the sixth grade of Mingde Yu Primary School, said with envy: "I want to study hard and play football like my younger brother to realize my ‘ Football dream ’ 。”

  Backer Batur, the captain who led Langan Town Middle School to win the second "Pomegranate Seed Cup" youth football team championship, has a greater ideal. "I want to redouble my efforts, learn the national common language well, learn cultural lessons well, become an excellent athlete when I grow up, compete in domestic and international competitions, and win glory for my country."

New energy vehicles will be piloted in five cities including Shanghai with special number plates.

  CCTV News:The reporter learned from the Ministry of Public Security that in order to better promote the development of new energy vehicles, better distinguish and identify new energy vehicles, and implement differentiated traffic management policies, from December 1, 2016, the Ministry of Public Security will be in Shanghai, Nanjing, Wuxi, Jinan and Shenzhen. Five cities will take the lead in piloting the use of special number plates for new energy vehicles. 

  Different from the "blue" license plate used by ordinary passenger cars now, the special license plate for new energy vehicles takes "green" as the main tone, which embodies the meaning of "green environmental protection". The background color of small new energy vehicles adopts gradient green, while that of large new energy vehicles adopts yellow-green double color.

 Figure 1 Small new energy vehicle number plate style

  In order to better implement the national new energy vehicle industry development and differentiated management policy, the new energy vehicle license plate is managed in sections according to different vehicle types.The letter "D" stands for pure electric vehicles, and the letter "F" stands for non-pure electric vehicles (including plug-in hybrid vehicles and fuel cell vehicles).          

 Fig. 2 Number plate style of large-scale new energy vehicles

  At the same time, the number of special number plates for new energy vehicles has been increased by one, from 5 to 6 for ordinary cars, with increased number plate capacity and richer resources. The new energy vehicle license plate fee remains unchanged, and the current national standard for ordinary vehicle license plate fees is still implemented, and each license plate is 100 yuan.

  During the pilot period, new energy vehicles newly purchased by the masses will be registered in five pilot cities, and special number plates for new energy vehicles will be issued; For registered new energy vehicles, according to the principle of voluntary renewal, the owner can choose whether to renew the new number plate. In order to avoid the crowded queue caused by centralized license change, the pilot cities will adopt the Internet service platform to make an appointment to change the license plate, at the same time, add a green channel or special window for the license plate business of new energy vehicles, set up on-site license plate production points, provide delayed or Saturday and Sunday license plate change services, and provide free license plate installation services to meet the needs of the masses to the greatest extent. In addition, the public security traffic control departments of the pilot cities will simultaneously launch a unified motor vehicle number plate selection system to ensure the open, fair and just issuance of number plates.

  It is understood that up to now, the number of pure electric vehicles registered nationwide has reached 555,500. According to the State Council’s Industrial Development Plan for Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicles (2012-2020), new energy vehicles mainly include pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles and fuel cell vehicles. By 2020, the cumulative production and sales of pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles will exceed 5 million.

  The person in charge of the Traffic Management Bureau of the Ministry of Public Security said that on the basis of the pilot, it will constantly sum up experience and practices, gradually expand the application scope of special number plates for new energy vehicles, and strive to promote their use throughout the country in the second half of 2017. In addition, the Ministry of Public Security will also study and improve the style of ordinary car number plates to further enhance the informationization, scientification and standardization of motor vehicle management.
