Ideal launch L9 product experience promotion plan to improve the experience.


  With the delivery of Ideal L9 (Parameter | Inquiry), Ideal Official has recently received a lot of feedback about the product experience. A few days ago, LI officially released the ideal L9 product experience improvement plan, including three-screen simulcast, three-screen simulcast, mobile App car control authority and other functions, all of which are planned to be realized through the next OTA upgrade and the fourth quarter.

LI 2022 Ideal L9

  1. Three-screen simultaneous playback and three-screen simultaneous projection function

  When many people watch videos and play games in the car, the "interoperability" of the three screens is very important. This requires two new functions to support: three screens play the same video or three screens project at the same time.

  In the fourth quarter, three-screen simulcast and three-screen simulcast will be realized through OTA. Iqiyi will be the first application to support three-screen simulcast, and other video applications will follow. At that time, no matter in the front row or the back row, everyone can enjoy watching videos and playing games.

Ideality L9

  In order to better enhance the screen projection experience, we will also launch "Double Type-C Direct Projection Line" and "HDMI to Type-C Direct Projection Line" in the official mall, which is compatible with more game consoles, mobile phones or tablets. It is expected to go online on September 25th.

Ideality L9

  2. Problems of three-screen scanning code login application

  At present, the relationship between the three screens in the L9 car is equivalent to the three tablets we use at home, and the applications in each screen need to scan the code separately to log in. For users who have just picked up the car, it is really cumbersome. In order to solve this problem, we have a preliminary solution at present, and some applications can complete the login of three-screen applications in the same screen in the fourth quarter.

Ideality L9

  3. The sharing function of the car control authority of the mobile App.

  When many people want to use the same car, everyone needs a "mobile phone key", but privacy and convenience need to be taken into account at the same time. At present, we have formed a preliminary plan internally and plan to OTA in the fourth quarter.

  4. Small refrigerator experience improvement

  L9′ s mini refrigerator can only be opened in the second row, but we found that the driver and passenger also have the need to use the mini refrigerator. In the parking scene, when people sitting in one row reach for the small refrigerator in the second row to get drinks, the cooling or heating mode may change due to accidental touch.

Ideality L9

  In order to solve this problem, in the fourth quarter, we will increase the switch of small refrigerator door in the central control panel. At the same time, the continuous working function of the small refrigerator after leaving the car will become a long-term setting item, which can keep the small refrigerator working after locking the car only once.

  5. Air conditioning logic optimization

  In order to make the automatic air-conditioning function meet more people’s car habits, the automatic air-conditioning function of L9 provides "five automatic grades", with the first gear being the weakest and the fifth gear being the strongest.

  In the current logic, after the "automatic mode" is selected in the screen, the "automatic 1st gear" is entered by default, so when the car is very hot, everyone will feel that the cooling is not fast enough. In the next OTA, we will optimize it to "Automatic 3rd gear" by default after selecting the automatic mode, which is also the most comfortable air volume level, taking into account the cooling/heating speed.

Ideality L9

  In the remote air conditioning function, the remote air conditioner will be changed to "automatic 5th gear" by default to realize rapid cooling/heating, which will also be optimized in the next OTA.

  6. The stability of the 5G network of the vehicle is improved

  L9′ s 5G network uses an Internet of Vehicles card, which is different from our commonly used mobile phone card. In the same area, network service providers have different network configuration strategies for car networking cards and mobile phone cards, so their actual network performance may be inconsistent. In the previous network test, we have covered most cities in China, and at present, we are also jointly conducting road tests in more cities to continuously improve the network stability in various regions.

  In addition to the operator’s reasons, some strategies of the car itself may also lead to poor network experience, which may cause problems such as slow recovery of the network in and out of the basement and occasional disconnection of the App car control. We will optimize them in the next OTA and the fourth quarter.

  7. Sound effect optimization

  Based on L9′ s high-quality audio system hardware capability and everyone’s feedback, we optimized the audio effect, which will be realized by OTA in the fourth quarter.

Ideality L9

  8. Navigation-assisted driving experience is improved.

  Navigation-assisted driving relies on high-precision maps, but the update speed of maps can’t keep up with the changes of actual road conditions. For example, after the high-speed construction section in a certain place is over, if the map is not updated in time, it will lead to the degradation of navigation-assisted driving, accompanied by sound reminders. This will cause the use of navigation-assisted driving to be interrupted occasionally, which is not continuous enough.

LI 2022 Ideal L9

  In the fourth quarter, we will combine the ability of map positioning and visual perception to greatly reduce the degradation in the use of navigation-assisted driving functions. At the same time, we will greatly improve the accuracy of the speed limit value of navigation-assisted driving.

  9. Mobile phone Bluetooth key experience optimization

  In the next OTA, we will further optimize the functions of "automatic locking when leaving the car" and "automatic unlocking when approaching" of the Bluetooth key of the mobile phone, so as to solve the problem that the timing of automatic unlocking is inconsistent with everyone’s daily car habits.

  Of course, in addition to the new functions and optimization projects mentioned above, we are still planning more new functions and solving some experience problems, such as the occasional car control of mobile App, inaccurate accompanying mileage in App, etc.

Huawei terminals attended the China Mobile Global Partner Conference, and all the new products in the whole scene were exhibited.

    From October 11th to 13th, 2023, the 2023 China Mobile Global Partner Conference and the 11th China Mobile Global Partner Conference were held in Guangzhou Poly World Trade Expo, China. During the exhibition, Huawei terminals brought a variety of products to participate in the exhibition, allowing participants to deeply experience the latest products of Huawei terminals.

    Recently, Huawei Terminal has released the new M7 and Mate60 series in three key areas, namely, new energy vehicles, mobile phones and full-scene smart life, which has boosted the rapid development of the industry.

    At this exhibition, Huawei Terminal brought flagship new products, sports health, government-enterprise solutions, smart home and new M7 in the world to the exhibition. The site is divided into five sections: 1+8 exhibition area, sports health, smart home, terminal government and enterprise, and the new M7 test drive. Huawei also won two awards from China Mobile, the Best Terminal Partner Award and the Most Popular Product Award.

    Mate60 series single ride

    According to the supply chain news, as of the end of September, the sales of Huawei Mate 60 Pro and Mate 60 have exceeded 1.1 million units. At present, the industry is optimistic about the future performance of Mate series.

    The impact of Huawei terminals on the industry lies not only in the market, but also in the continuous sales of Huawei Mate60 series, which has a greater impact on the domestic supply chain. Enterprises such as optics, panels and structural parts are accelerating production to meet the market demand of Huawei Mate60 series.

    Huawei Terminal and China Mobile have always maintained close cooperation, with a high degree of cooperation in the fields of mobile phones, wearables, routers and other products, consumers and businesses, as well as number card business and consumer stickiness. This time, Huawei’s terminal exhibition area also has a terminal government and enterprise area for the live audience to experience, and continue to empower the industry in the field of secure instant messaging with partners.

    Ask the new M7 to turn the tide.

    As the star SKU of Huawei’s smart car selection, Wenjie New M7 has recently ushered in an upgrade and change. After listing, it has become the top stream in the recent auto market with its excellent product strength. The data shows that since its release on September 12th, the cumulative quantity of the new M7 has exceeded 50,000 vehicles.

    Huawei’s smart car selection, especially the series of cars in the world, has experienced a low period, which is basically in line with the current situation of the domestic new energy vehicle market. Often, the technical upgrade of new models is obvious, and then they set sail in a high profile at the initial stage of listing. However, due to the rapid technical upgrade of the industry, as more brands of new products come out one after another, the result will be a rapid suppression of old models, which will lead to the weakness of the latter, and the impact will be to force major brands to continue to invest heavily to ensure the technological leadership of new cars.

    The upgrade of the product strength of the new M7 in the world and the "increasing the quantity without increasing the price" brought by the high cost performance are also the main reasons for detonating the market. At the conference site, Huawei Terminal also set up a new M7 test drive exhibition area for customers with test drive needs to test drive. It is reported that Huawei’s deeply empowered products, such as M9 and S7, will also be available.

   Full scene, new products landing, efficient ecological experience

    This time, Huawei Terminal also moved almost all the new products from the autumn full-scene conference to the exhibition site, so the audience can experience the new products of Huawei Terminal in the first time. Huawei terminals have always had a clear category positioning for each business line, and at the same time, they have also planned more carefully in ecological positioning, further consolidating the ecological moat.

    Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 inches has a stronger office atmosphere. The new PC-level WPS Office, combined with HarmonyOS intelligent interaction, brings a better PC-level office experience, and realizes the document synchronization between PC and mobile phone for the first time; Huawei WATCH ULTIMATE DESIGN Extraordinary Master Smart Watch is Huawei’s new interpretation of luxury industrial products. As Huawei’s first gold smart watch, this product has made another breakthrough in material technology, blending 18K precious gold for the first time; Huawei FreeBuds Pro 3 TWS headphones use the star flash technology, which improves the physical bandwidth by 4 times and the anti-interference ability by 2 times. Based on the new L2HC 3.0 protocol, it can realize lossless transmission of 1.5Mbps audio and bring lossless sound quality with super CD quality.

    Huawei’s terminal’s understanding of new products in the whole scene, while fully putting cutting-edge innovative technologies into product strength, brings a unique ecological wisdom interactive experience according to category positioning. Under the "1+8+N" system, the central position of the mobile phone is defined, and with the intelligent interaction of HarmonyOS, a number of core technologies are used as the starting point to expand and explore more functions. Huawei terminals have successfully built their own ecological moat.

Learn from Apple and Huawei: LI’s "Superclass"

"My Weibo is generated and published by Mind GPT. He is good at surfing the Internet and surfing online. I am responsible for being amiable offline. Weibo’s remarks cannot represent me personally. " Recently, Li Xiang, Chairman and CEO of LI, posted on social platforms.

The spring breeze is full of horseshoe disease, and running all the way, LI, led by Li Xiang, has been "super-class" all the way. For a long time, LI has been learning from Apple’s products. Li Xiang said in the first quarter earnings conference call in LI in 2022: "I will look at my own ability after ten years, hoping to make it the same level as Apple."

However, under the pressure of M7, Li wants to lead the team to "learn Huawei in an all-round way" in the second half of 2022. LI, led by the "crazy" Li Xiang, is running wildly in sales, far exceeding Weilai Automobile and Xpeng Motors.

At the same time, LI’s pricing is also "beyond the standard", with the product price range from "150,000 yuan to 500,000 yuan" to "200,000 yuan to 500,000 yuan", and the pricing of pure electric vehicles will exceed 500,000 yuan by the end of the year.

LI’s strategy is also rushing, upgrading from a scale of 10 billion to a comprehensive matrix organization with a scale of 100 billion. Release the "dual energy strategy", build more than 300 high-speed charging stations by the end of 2023, and expand its charging station network to 3,000 by 2025. LI is marching towards 500 billion revenue.

Sales are running wild.

"LI has delivered more than 20,000 vehicles for three consecutive months. As of June 18, LI has sold 19,800 vehicles this month, and we will hit the higher monthly sales target of more than 30,000!" Before the Dragon Boat Festival, LI was full of confidence in June sales data.

LI relies on intensive product release. In June, 2022, LI released the Ideal L9, ending the history of living on one car for four years. On the eve of the National Day that year, LI released the ideal L8 of Li ONE replacement model.

At the same time, LI’s "three children" ideal L7 was "premature". At the conference of Ideal L8, LI released Ideal L7 "incidentally". Finally, the ideal L7 came out in February this year.

With the joint blessing of Ideal L7, Ideal L8 and Ideal L9, LI’s monthly sales increased. From January to May this year, the sales volume in LI was 15,100, 16,600, 20,800, 25,700 and 28,300 respectively.

At the same time, Weilai Automobile and Xpeng Motors in Weili met with growing pains. From January to May this year, the sales volume of Weilai Automobile was 8500, 12200, 10400, 6700 and 6200 respectively. In the same period, the sales in Xpeng Motors were 5200, 6000, 7000, 9000 and 7500 respectively.

"All the stocks in Li ONE have been sold out, and the limit of weekly production capacity in June is 7,500 vehicles. The core tasks in the third quarter are: L8 and L9 return to the monthly delivery of 10,000 vehicles, and L7 challenges the monthly delivery of 15,000 vehicles. Li ONE’s inventory sales of more than 600 vehicles per week, L8 Air will all be transformed, and it is not difficult to sell more than 10,000 vehicles per month. " LI Chairman and CEO Li Xiang said.

At the same time, in June, the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology showed that LI was officially granted the qualification of Beijing LI Co., Ltd. According to the current capacity planning, there are two production bases associated with this qualification, namely LI Green Smart Factory in Shunyi District of Beijing and Changzhou Intelligent Manufacturing Base in LI, Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province.

At present, Li ONE, Ideal L9, L8 and L7 are all produced by Changzhou Intelligent Manufacturing Base in LI. Beijing Green Smart Factory in Shunyi officially started construction in October, 2021. The factory was transformed by the former Beijing Hyundai No.1 Factory. The whole project investment exceeded 7.5 billion yuan, and it is planned to be officially put into production this year. After commissioning, it will achieve an annual production capacity of 100,000 vehicles.

In pursuit of victory, LI announced in June that the first pure electric vehicle "Ideal MEGA" will be officially released at the end of this year. "I am confident that it will become the first sales volume of all passenger cars with a price of more than 500,000 yuan, regardless of energy form and body form, breaking the traditional cognition that high-end pure electric vehicles cannot become explosives."

The reason why LI can stand out among the new forces in car manufacturing is that Han Weidong, an analyst at Guosen Securities, believes that LI has adopted the dual-technology route of extended-range electric and high-voltage pure electric, which has well adapted to the needs of customers in the period of automobile electrification transformation. In the case that the problem of charging energy for pure electric vehicles still has shortcomings and cannot adapt to all travel scenarios, extended-range electric vehicles are an excellent transitional choice. It has better cost control ability and higher overall operating efficiency. Compared with the mainstream new force car companies, all business indicators and operating indicators in LI are at the best level.

Prices are running wild.

Under the rush of sales, LI’s pricing ceiling continued to break through. The pricing of the first pure electric vehicle "Ideal MEGA" will exceed 500,000 yuan.

As early as February 2021, the price range of products in LI was 150,000 yuan to 500,000 yuan. In August of that year, when it went public in Hong Kong, the LI prospectus adjusted the price range of smart electric vehicle products. The lower limit of the price range has been raised from 150,000 yuan to 200,000 yuan, that is, "strategically focus on new energy vehicles with prices ranging from 200,000 yuan to 500,000 yuan".

Shen Yanan, co-founder and president of LI at that time, told the Beijing News Shell Finance reporter that it is a fast-growing market to further define the product positioning as family-made cars. The market size of 200,000 to 500,000 yuan will exceed 5 million vehicles this year, and it is expected to exceed 8 million vehicles in 2025. We are more willing to focus on this price range. In addition, pricing is also related to the positioning of luxury smart electric vehicles.

In fact, the prices of ideal L7, ideal L8 and ideal L9 are all between 300,000 yuan and 500,000 yuan. Regarding the firm pricing, Li Xiang once said, "Many people say, why doesn’t the ideal reduce the price to less than 300,000? The same problem, consumers do not accept a good brand of medium and large SUVs sold for more than 200,000. "

However, Li thought it might be necessary to pay attention to a situation. In the first quarter of 2023, LI’s revenue was 18.79 billion yuan, and a total of 52,600 new cars were delivered, with an average price of 357,200 yuan. The average price is equivalent to the pricing of the ideal L7. At present, the sales of the ideal L7 also contribute the most.

The price of "Ideal MEGA" will exceed 500,000 yuan, or it is related to LI’s high investment. LI has previously issued a "dual-energy strategy" which includes two major directions: "intelligence" and "electricity". In June, Liu Qiang, the person in charge of power drive in LI, said, "In terms of power strategy, LI will build a 5C model with a charging time of 9 minutes and 30 seconds and a battery life of 400 kilometers, a 5C super charging network and an automatic charging robot to effectively solve the two major problems of slow charging speed and long-distance charging difficulty."

Zeng Duohong, an analyst in soochow securities, believes that the launch of new pure electric products will improve the layout of the company’s new energy vehicle product line. The L series extended range product line will match the pure electric product line launched in 2024-2025, and rely on core technologies such as 800V high voltage +5C battery +Mind GPT+ scenario NOA to help the overall sales/market share increase continuously.

Zhang Xiang, a visiting professor at Huanghe Institute of Science and Technology, believes that the competitiveness and attractiveness of the first pure electric vehicle in LI may not be as good as that of the extended-range vehicle, because the market development stage and situation are different. At first, there were few competing models of extended-range vehicles, and the market was a blue ocean; At present, there are many competitors in the pure electric vehicle market, such as Tesla and BYD.

"Now the market competition is very fierce, the growth rate of the new energy automobile industry is slowing down, and the growth of LI may also slow down. In order to maintain growth, LI should expand its product matrix, and its products should sink. It can’t just do more than 300,000 yuan, but also sink to 200,000 yuan, otherwise the growth momentum may be slowly lost." Zhang Xiang believes.

The strategy is running wild

Li Xiang has always been a fanatical fruit powder, and his products have always been in line with Apple: the doll strategy of "one configuration" is similar to that of the early iPhone with only one model; Drawing lessons from Apple’s product model, besides the Pro version and Max version, the Air version is launched.

Li Xiang was influenced by Huawei again. In June, Li Xiang wrote, "In the third quarter of 2022, the release and trading of M7 in the world directly crippled Li ONE. We have never met such a strong opponent, and for a long time we have no strength to fight back. HW’s super ability directly caused Li ONE’s sales to collapse and stop production in advance. It lost more than one billion in one quarter, and the team was disabled. I couldn’t sleep at all. Our ability was really poor, and it collapsed in the face of people’s very basic moves, which caused a large number of product experts who struggled in the front line to leave. "

In fact, at the end of June, 2022, LI’s "two children" ideal L9 was released, which was called "the best flagship SUV for home use within 5 million" by Li Xiang, and the delivery volume of LI in August of that year suffered a "waist-cutting" drop. In the third quarter of 2022, the delivery volume was 26,524 vehicles, with a year-on-year increase of only 5.6%; The company’s net loss expanded year-on-year.

In fact, the asking M7, regarded by Li Xiang as a super rival, sells for around 300,000 yuan. At that time, Huawei Yu Chengdong proposed that "the goal of M7 is still to surpass the comfortable and intelligent experience of millions of luxury large SUVs and MPVs."

In the face of pressure, Li Xiang introduced that at the end of September 2022, the company held a strategic meeting to reach a consensus to comprehensively study Huawei, upgrade the matrix organization as soon as possible, and be able to fight positional warfare and bid farewell to guerrilla warfare completely. "Our management team has bought no less than ten public books on HW. We were surprised to find that the painful problems we encountered in product research and development, sales and service, supply and manufacturing, and organization of finance and economics were solved more than ten years ago, even twenty years ago."

Determined to learn from Huawei, in December 2022, LI launched a comprehensive matrix organization upgrade with an annual income of 100 billion yuan. "In the development stage from 0-1, speed is efficiency, and the vertical organization model has helped us achieve a revenue scale of 10 billion, and we have done very well; From the development stage of 1-10, quality has become efficiency. We need to use organizational upgrading to achieve a breakthrough in the scale of billions of income and challenge the scale of trillions of income. " Li Xiang said.

At the Shanghai International Auto Show in April, 2023, LI released a "dual-energy strategy" with two directions: intelligence and electric energy. By 2025, LI will form a product layout of "one super flagship+five extended-range electric vehicles+five high-voltage pure electric vehicles", which will be oriented to a market of more than 200,000.

With the continuous high sales volume, when Li Xiang forwarded the news that "new energy vehicles are exempt from vehicle purchase tax" on June 21, he said, "Very good, and directly gave a four-year stability policy. There is no excuse for our team to achieve the strategic goal of the company in 2025. 1.6 million vehicles/year, 500 billion revenue, verified in early 2026! "

Li Xiang and LI running all the way, all the way "super class".

Han Weidong believes that it is predicted that the company’s total revenue in 2023 will continue its rapid growth in recent years, reaching a scale of about 90 billion yuan, mainly due to the rapid increase in automobile sales again. In terms of profitability, it is predicted that the company will turn losses into profits in 2023. Under the background of increasingly fierce competition in the industry, it is expected that marketing and management expenses and research and development expenses will continue to grow at a high rate, which will erode the total profit scale to some extent. At the same time, it is predicted that the company’s revenue level will continue to grow at a faster rate in 2024, reaching a scale of more than 130 billion yuan, and the profit level is expected to be significantly improved.

Dong Mingzhu talks about Gree’s change of ownership: it is not full of dissatisfaction, and steady development does not depend on a certain shareholder.

On December 28th, the 4th "Make the World Love Made in China" Summit Forum was moved to the headquarters in Gree Electric, Zhuhai, which was the first large-scale event held at the headquarters after the transfer plan of Gree Electric (000651) was finalized.

When interviewed by reporters after the meeting, Dong Mingzhu, the chairman of Gree Electric, said that he was "not satisfied or dissatisfied with the scheme" when talking about the transfer of control rights. She said that the steady development of Gree Electric over the years is not due to a certain shareholder, but mainly depends on the management team. This time, Zhuhai SASAC withdrew from the position of major shareholder in the hope that Gree Electric would become a more market-oriented listed company.

Dong Mingzhu also stressed that after the transfer of Gree Electric’s controlling stake, there will be "three invariants": the integrity of society, the cultivation of employees and the protection of the legitimate interests of shareholders cannot be changed.

Dong Mingzhu, Chairman of Gree Electric 

Withdrawal of state-owned assets: in order to establish a more market-oriented system.

On December 15th, Zhuhai SASAC officially approved Gree Group’s plan to transfer 15% of Gree Electric shares to Zhuhai Mingjun. Gree Electric will become a public company without controlling shareholders and actual controllers.

Dong Mingzhu explained that Zhuhai SASAC sold its shares in the hope that Gree Electric would become a truly public company. Dong Mingzhu quoted Guo Yonghang, secretary of Zhuhai Municipal Party Committee, as saying that the government should "show up immediately when enterprises need it;" When enterprises don’t need it, you are far away and keep a clear political and business relationship. " Dong Mingzhu said that the focus of this transfer of Gree’s control right is not the withdrawal of state-owned assets, but the establishment of a market-oriented system for listed companies to operate and develop better.

In addition, the transfer of control rights in Gree Electric was also promoted under the background of the accelerated development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. "Zhuhai is located in the center of Greater Bay Area. We have more thoughts and positioning for the future construction of Greater Bay Area and the development of Zhuhai. I feel that through this equity transfer, more listed companies will be built for Zhuhai, and (Zhuhai) will become a more market-oriented place that is conducive to the faster development of enterprises. " Dong Mingzhu said that the equity transfer is of far-reaching significance.

According to the announcement on December 2nd, the price for Gree Group to transfer 15% equity of Gree Electric is 41.66 billion yuan. If the transaction is finally made at this price, the takeover party will have a floating profit of 16.6 billion yuan by taking this 15% equity based on the current share price of Gree Electric.

Dong Mingzhu revealed that Gree Electric will build Gree Tower in Hengqin, Zhuhai, to provide some support for the development of Macao. "Although there are more than 10 research institutes and nearly 100 research institutes in Gree Electric, with the diversified development, Gree will build more research institutions. Building Gree Building in Hengqin is a platform to boost Macao’s development and provide talents for the University of Macau and Macau University of Science and Technology. "

Gree Electric launches Gree three-generation mobile phones.  

Management is the biggest beneficiary? The team is pure.

Gree Electric’s 15% equity was taken over by Zhuhai Mingjun, and behind Zhuhai Mingjun, besides Gaoying Capital, Gree Electric management also participated in the shareholding. Some outsiders believe that the biggest beneficiary of the transfer of control rights in Gree Electric is the management of Gree Electric.

Dong Mingzhu responded that Gree Electric’s management is a pure team. In the past 20 years, it has never been more concerned about the company’s shares. It is bent on making Gree bigger and stronger, and there is no other idea. The development of an enterprise is not supported by capital, but by the innovative culture of the enterprise.

According to CICC’s report, Gree Group’s plan to transfer 15% of Gree Electric’s equity has properly arranged the interests of Gree Electric’s management. Among them, Gree Electric management entity will subscribe Zhuhai Mingjun 2.426 billion yuan, and get 11.10% of the capital contribution; In addition, the management entity obtains 41% of LP investment share (i.e. 20.3% of investment share) from Zhuhai Xianying (GP general partner of Zhuhai Mingjun), and can fully enjoy the management fee and GP income brought by Zhuhai Mingjun. The management entity will distribute 8% of the total GP income to the management and employees who have made important contributions to the listed company. The management entity obtained 41% controlling equity of Zhuhai Yuxiu (GP general partner of Zhuhai Xianying) for RMB 4.305 million, which can indirectly control Zhuhai Mingjun. After the equity transfer is completed, the company will promote the equity incentive plan, with the total amount not exceeding 4% of Gree Electric’s shares.

Are you satisfied with Gaoling Capital? Not satisfied or dissatisfied.

After Gree Electric threw out the intention of equity transfer, Hopu Investment was also very interested in this part of the equity besides Gaoyou Capital, but in the end Gaoyou Capital won.

When asked if he was satisfied with the equity transfer plan, Dong Mingzhu responded that this should be asked to Zhuhai SASAC.

There have been rumors before that the negotiations between Gaochun Capital and Gree management were not smooth. Dong Mingzhu responded: "Any negotiation is not smooth. If it is smooth, it will not be called negotiation." When asked if she was satisfied with the plan, Dong Mingzhu responded: "It is not satisfied or dissatisfied."

When asked how Gree Electric will cooperate or collaborate with its new shareholder, Gaoyan Capital, Dong Mingzhu replied that "at least I don’t see it now", and she further said, "If one capital can solve the problems of enterprises, how can we see that so many capitals are exploding today? Therefore, it is not a capital to support the development of enterprises, but the innovation of enterprises to support development. "

Gree Electric business segment readjusted.

Throw out the new strategy of "Internet of Everything" Gree mobile phone released for three generations.

On the same day, Gree Electric released the "Internet of Everything" strategy, and for the first time demonstrated a complete set of intelligent connected home appliances controlled by intelligent voice.

Gree staff demonstrated how to control refrigerators, washing machines, rice cookers, range hoods and other household appliances by voice with Gree IOT air conditioners and Gree IOT mobile phones as entrances.

Dong Mingzhu also personally released Gree Electric’s third-generation smart phone at the scene. On-site PPT shows that Gree’s third-generation mobile phone adopts a 5.99-inch full HD full screen, emphasizes the night shooting algorithm in taking photos, has intelligent IOT buttons, and controls household appliances by voice.

Dong Mingzhu said that every Gree third-generation mobile phone can directly open the "micro store in Dong Mingzhu". "With Gree’s mobile phone, you should buy Gree’s products, otherwise I will remember you."

There are also many controversies about Gree making mobile phones, but from Gree Electric, mobile phones are just an entrance to Gree’s smart home strategy.

Gree Electric has also publicly released four international leading technologies that have been identified-key technologies and applications of rare earth-free reluctance main drive motor system for new energy buses, high-efficiency reluctance variable frequency scroll compressor technology, high-performance linear servo motor and driver, and high-efficiency pneumatic suspension centrifugal compressor.

The latest information displayed in Gree Electric Exhibition Hall shows that Gree Electric’s business has been re-divided into two parts, one is consumption and the other is industry. Previously, Gree Electric’s four business segments included air conditioning, household appliances, communications and intelligent equipment. This also means that the first three sectors are now merged into the consumer sector, highlighting the overall smart home; Intelligent equipment has expanded into the industrial field.

Dong Mingzhu also confirmed the adjustment of the company’s business sector in the interview. She said that the consumer sector is the business that Gree started, and the industrial sector is the heavy weapon of the country. There is no conflict between the two. "Without high-end equipment, you can’t make perfect consumer products, and you won’t be biased."

Xiaomi Leijun: The core problem of the long delivery time of Xiaomi SU7 is that the sales volume is 3-5 times higher than expected.

Lei Jun, chairman of Xiaomi Automobile, responded to "the delivery time of Xiaomi SU7 is too long" during the live broadcast today. "The core problem is that the sales volume is 3-5 times higher than we expected, and an emergency supplier meeting was held a week ago. The original planned standard version and PRO version were delivered at the end of April. In fact, delivery has started today, 12 days ahead of schedule. "

Zhiji’s goal: let everyone have a dedicated driver.

"It’s so obedient that it will automatically open the door as soon as it hears me coming to it. When I wash the car, I have to put my mobile phone far away." On April 18th, at the Shanghai Auto Show, Tang Wei, the owner of Zhiji, shared that the car is smart, but I hope it won’t automatically open the door when washing the car. Tamia Liu, co-CEO of Zhiji Automobile, responded at the scene and iterated at the fastest speed.

Intelligentization brings a lot of convenience to the car. Taking the mobile phone as an example, it can replace the function of the car key, start the air conditioner remotely, unlock it, authorize friends to drive the car, etc. When the owner approaches the car with his mobile phone, there are interactions such as flashing lights, honking horns and opening the car door.

However, just like what happened in Tang Wei, while intelligence brings convenience, it will bring some new troubles due to thoughtlessness. The interaction between Tang Wei as the owner of Zhiji and the brand has also become a vivid scene of automobile intelligence ecology. Automobile intelligent manufacturers have designed many scenes to meet the wishes that can only be imagined but cannot be realized in the traditional automobile era. In the process of using, the owner found unreasonable points, and the comprehensive data was continuously fed and learned. After investigation, design, feedback and promotion, the upgrade iteration was quickly completed.

The intelligent problem raised by Tang Wei is the focus of the release of Zhiji at the Shanghai Auto Show. The AI4M intelligent strategy announced by Zhiji takes "AI" artificial intelligence as the core, so that cars can observe, think and act like "people", and the goal is to let everyone have a dedicated driver.

In order to achieve this goal, Zhiji said that it will rely on the scientific and technological accumulation of SAIC for many years and the core self-research of Zhiji Automobile since its establishment three years ago, and at the same time deepen the strategic cooperation with Alibaba Cloud, Zebra Zhixing, Momenta and other leading forces in the field of intelligent technology in China, actively lay out the whole chain closed-loop innovation of the brand-new intelligent electrical architecture, and launch the "China Intelligent Scheme".

Zhiji believes that the AI era has accelerated the landing speed of artificial intelligence in the real world. In the field of autonomous driving, perceptual intelligence and cognitive intelligence are two key issues that need to be solved urgently. In the past few years, perceptual intelligence has received full attention from the whole industry. While improving perceptual intelligence, Zhiji cooperated with Momenta, a global head intelligent driving algorithm player, to launch the industry’s first D.L.P artificial intelligence decision planning model.

Zhiji took the lead in using deep learning to plan, greatly improving the takeover rate and realizing the driving ability like an old human driver. According to the on-site introduction of Tamia Liu, the current takeover rate is about once per 100 kilometers, and it will increase tenfold every two years. In the future, the takeover mileage will increase to once per 1000 kilometers or even once per 10,000 kilometers.

Based on this strategy, the high-speed elevated NOA (Automatic Aided Navigation System) will be launched on Zhiji L7 at the end of April. The first batch of open cities will be "Shanghai, Jiangsu, Hangzhou, Jiaxing and Lake", and LS7 will be upgraded and promoted to the whole country within this year.

By then, NOA of Zhiji can carry out dynamic path planning for closed high-speed elevated roads, and complete lane keeping, automatic speed adjustment, active lane change overtaking, automatic up-and-down ramp and other behaviors within the design area.

Tamia Liu emphasized that after completing the game calculation of active lane change and gap insertion, the driving quality is actually a highlight of Zhiji. Zhiji NOA’s driving behavior deeply learns from professional drivers, not frequently accelerating and decelerating, but making reasonable and comfortable actions to complete the instructions.

Zhiji said that the intelligent strategy with AI as the core is not just a written plan. In the second half of 2023, an intelligent medium-sized city cross-border SUV will be launched to solve the pain points of users in urban travel with intelligent solutions. An intelligent sports coupe, which is expected to be launched in 2024, is equipped with the latest Qualcomm 8295 high computing power chip, takes the lead in adopting solid-state batteries and adopts a brand-new three-electric system including carbon fiber rotor technology. The car will enter the "2-second acceleration club" and fully reproduce the F1 driving experience. The two models launched in 2025 are based on a new vector magic architecture and a modular magnetic open platform, which reconstructs the vehicle space and allows users to enjoy a subversive intelligent experience.

These problems are the key to the centralized collection of Chinese patent medicines.

How to break the industry difficulties when the signal of centralized collection of Chinese patent medicines comes out?

On August 9, 2021, the National Medical Insurance Bureau issued the Reply of the National Medical Insurance Bureau to Recommendation No.4126 of the Fourth Session of the 13th National People’s Congress, stating that "on the basis of improving the quality evaluation standards of Chinese patent medicines and formula granules, we will adhere to quality priority, take clinical demand as the guide, and start with high-priced and large-quantity varieties to scientifically and steadily promote the centralized procurement reform of Chinese patent medicines and formula granules".

The introduction of this reply means that the procurement of Chinese patent medicines and even granules has been put on the agenda. However, as the first batch of people in China who participated in centralized drug bidding and purchasing and engaged in big data research of traditional Chinese medicine for a long time, the author is not optimistic about the procurement of traditional Chinese medicine in the short term.

Say so, we might as well stroke the train of thought:


What is the quantity purchase of traditional Chinese medicine?

"Drug procurement with quantity" refers to defining the procurement quantity when bidding or negotiation is carried out in the process of centralized drug procurement, so that enterprises can quote according to the specific quantity. This procurement method is also the goal that China has been striving to achieve for many years. In fact, this method is also an upgraded version of the centralized bidding and purchasing of drugs in medical institutions nationwide since 2000, which is no stranger to the vast number of pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers at home and abroad. However, it is really a new thing for domestic Chinese medicine production enterprises, especially Chinese medicine decoction pieces enterprises.

Let’s start with the following basic definitions of popular science:

First, which Chinese medicines can be included in the quantity procurement? The "traditional Chinese medicine" that can be included in the quantity procurement mainly includes Chinese patent medicines and Chinese herbal pieces (including new-type pieces and formula granules) used in clinical practice in medical institutions.

Second, what is quantity procurement? Procurement with quantity is relative to centralized procurement, which can be understood as large-scale "group purchase" or "group purchase", that is, many hospitals form a "procurement consortium" to conduct similar "group purchase". At present, in areas where quantity procurement is implemented, the purchased products need to account for 60%-70% of the total usage, which is equivalent to a big "group purchase". Purchase with quantity, specify the purchase quantity, and the manufacturer will quote and negotiate, and the lowest price will win the bid. Enterprises can reduce the price of purchased drugs and increase the market share of products through market-oriented bidding with quantity, which is beneficial to both supply and demand sides and drug users.

Third, which institutions can carry out centralized procurement and quantity procurement? At present, it is mainly enforced in non-profit medical institutions under the supervision of medical insurance and medical and health authorities (note that it is not non-profit or non-profit). Social organizations such as retail pharmacies can also spontaneously organize "purchasing consortia" to carry out "group buying", which is referred to as "GPO purchasing" for short, but it is often not mandatory by policy.

Fourth, what does "4+7" procurement with quantity mean? It refers to the first batch of 11 pilot cities promoted by the state, including 4 municipalities directly under the central government and 7 provincial capital cities: Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chongqing, Shenyang, Dalian, Xiamen, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu and Xi ‘an, which basically covers half of the domestic clinical drug circulation. These cities will take out more than 50% of the purchasing share every year, which has a great relationship with the market share of production enterprises and is a matter of life and death.

Therefore, once the country promotes the "4+7" or even nationwide procurement of traditional Chinese medicine, it will surely become a key event for Chinese medicine enterprises, which is expected to cause a major reshuffle of the Chinese medicine industry, and the industry must pay attention to it.


Why is it difficult to implement the procurement of traditional Chinese medicine for a long time?

Before answering this question, we must clarify two points:First, the centralized bidding and purchasing of proprietary Chinese medicines has been carried out around 2001, and the effect of reducing fees is very obvious, but it has not yet been included in the "4+7" procurement; Second, the centralized bidding and purchasing of Chinese herbal pieces. As early as 2001, the documents No.308 and No.309 jointly issued by five ministries and commissions in the State Council all proposed to "actively explore the centralized bidding and purchasing of Chinese herbal pieces".

However, it was not until 2018 that attempts were made in Shanghai, Gansu and other places, and the effect was not obvious; In July 2020, 12 provinces, including Shandong and Inner Mongolia, directly established a platform for the joint collection and purchase of Chinese herbal medicines, and prepared to carry out large-scale procurement activities of Chinese herbal medicines. However, the thunder and the rain are too small, and there is no more.

Why can’t centralized bidding or quantity procurement of traditional Chinese medicine products be promoted?

The apparent reason is that the overall purchase volume of Chinese medicine products without proprietary Chinese medicines is small, and the overall purchase volume of pieces of Chinese medicine in medical institutions nationwide is less than 56 billion yuan, which is only a fraction of the total purchase volume of chemicals and medical devices, and it lacks attention. But the deep-seated reason is that there are two bottlenecks, and there is no breakthrough for a long time:

The first is the standard issue.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a practical weapon of TCM, and its personalized demand is very obvious. A large number of raw medicinal materials and even decoction pieces are agricultural and sideline products, which are non-standard products. You may say that the Pharmacopoeia has the standard of decoction pieces, but that is only the minimum quality threshold, and it can’t cover the complicated and changeable commodity circulation specifications of Chinese herbal medicines at all.

For example, 280 and 380 pieces of Lycium barbarum, Ningxia goods and Qinghai goods, new goods and old goods, although they all meet the pharmacopoeia standards, can they be regarded as the same commodity? Without a unified standard, how to divide the quality levels? If we simply use the Pharmacopoeia standard to evaluate products, it will undoubtedly lower the quality level of Chinese patent medicines and granules as a whole and destroy a large number of well-known brands of Chinese medicine.

Shanghai, Zhejiang and other places are going to separate the products using raw materials from GAP base or traceability base, but everyone in the industry knows that the construction of GAP base in China is difficult to land, and the construction of traceability base is just in its infancy. The concept is bigger than the essence. Can it be used as a criterion at this stage?

At the same time, even if you establish a commodity circulation standard, will this standard be recognized by both the supply and demand sides? How to run through the whole process of Chinese herbal medicine raw materials, Chinese herbal pieces, granules, production enterprises, products and demand side is a very difficult and grand project, which can not be straightened out by a single link.

The second is the price issue. 

The price problem is divided into three levels:

The first is how to define the cost of different quality Chinese herbal medicines. Origin, growth cycle, harvest time, content, appearance and processing technology will all affect its pricing. This problem is actually closely linked to the circulation standard and is an extension of the standard problem.

Secondly, the price fluctuation during the period of centralized mining. The nature of agricultural and sideline products of most Chinese herbal medicines leads to the reality that they still have to "eat by the sky". In the past five years, the price amplitude of Chinese herbal medicines in China has reached more than 18.5%. In August 2020, the same kind of forsythia was 55 yuan (kg price, the same below), and it will rise to 115 yuan in 2021; The raw land has skyrocketed from 11 yuan to 35 yuan. How do you let the successful bidder complete the distribution at the original price?

Allowing the price increase violates the rules of the game of winning the bid at a low price under the same quality, and how to accept the price increase basis? If the price increase is not allowed, the winning bidder will be miserable and it is very likely to lose money to perform the contract; If the roasted seeds and nuts add fuel to the fire and monopolize the raw materials of the winning products to raise the price, the enterprise will even lose the pants, and finally the severe consequences of "winning the bid is death" will not be ruled out.

More crucially, the higher the bid, the higher the price. At present, the principle of "bidding and bidding, the lowest price for supply" is generally adopted in raw material procurement of production enterprises, and all kinds of arrears and deduction of suppliers’ payment for goods have also existed for a long time, so as to minimize the cost of raw materials. If we really realize the so-called "genuine quality and conscientious processing" through centralized purchasing activities, and make the raw material sources and costs of those brand enterprises known to the world, we will inevitably face the embarrassing situation of "more recruitment and higher fees" due to the improvement of quality. Originally, centralized purchasing wanted to reduce prices and control fees, but as a result, the price of centralized purchasing rose sharply. Can the medical insurance department accept it? This is really a paradox.

To sum up, when designing the centralized collection activities of traditional Chinese medicine, the operators often fail to consider the complexity of traditional Chinese medicine products, especially in terms of standards and prices, and lack of fundamental countermeasures and convincing evaluation system, so there are many obstacles in the actual promotion, and most attempts eventually end in vain.


How to break the traditional Chinese medicine collection?

It is precisely because of the complexity of the centralized collection of traditional Chinese medicine that the procurement of traditional Chinese medicine in medical institutions has been in a blind spot or even a "gray zone" for a long time.

The so-called "high-end decoction pieces" and "selling granules with gold" such as Niuhuang, Cordyceps sinensis, Saussurea involucrata, etc. have long been an open secret in the industry, seriously damaging the principle of "openness, fairness and transparency" in drug circulation. Therefore, the centralized collection of traditional Chinese medicine must be implemented as soon as possible. But in the face of many practical difficulties, how to break the game?

The author believes that the key to the breakthrough of centralized collection of traditional Chinese medicine lies in rationalizing the industrial chain by using the big data platform of traditional Chinese medicine industry, and realizing the bottom logic of traditional Chinese medicine products from raw material production, processing, circulation to sales, thus achieving a closed loop.

In this closed-loop front-end, it is an order agriculture based on the concept of blockchain, which is directly linked to the annual orders of demanding enterprises. When the commodity codes are sold out, external capital cannot intervene at all to ensure the stability of supply prices; In the circulation link, it is the two-dimensional code traceability of the whole process; In the sales link, we encourage order agriculture and full traceability with high quality and good price, so that the traceability input of enterprises is worth the money; Finally, basic functions such as standardized warehousing and logistics and third-party testing should be completed.

In this closed-loop system, the construction of big data platform for Chinese medicine industry is very important and is the core grasper. All information such as origin information, product information, price fluctuation, employee data, supply and demand data, quality standards, etc. will be included in this big data platform, and the bottom layer will realize the whole process with unified coding.

Only after the above preparations are completed, can the centralized collection of traditional Chinese medicine have the basis for implementation, and can the original intention of the medical insurance department to raise quality control fees be realized.

I believe that the centralized collection of traditional Chinese medicine will surely make a breakthrough on this basis.
