According to foreign media reports, Tesla announced in a regulatory document released on January 2, local time that the price of all car models in the United States had been reduced by $2,000. Tesla said the price cut would help compensate for the phasing out of electric vehicle subsidies by the federal government.
Starting from January 1, Tesla Electric Vehicle Subsidies will be halved to $3,750 from the previous $7,500. After the price reduction, Tesla Model 3 started at $44,000 in the United States, Model S started at $76,000, and Model X started at $82,000, excluding tax subsidies provided by federal and state governments.
In the United States, consumers of electric vehicles can receive subsidies of $2,500 to $7,500 from the government depending on the type of car they buy and the power of their batteries. In the two quarters after the total sales of 200,000 electric vehicles, subsidies will begin to decrease, while Tesla's cumulative sales of electric vehicles will exceed 200,000 in 2018.
It is reported that Tesla consumers who pick up cars from January 1 to June 30 this year will receive a subsidy of $3,750, while those who pick up cars from July 1 to December 31 will only receive a subsidy of $1,875. After 2020, consumers who buy Tesla vehicles will not receive federal subsidies.
As a auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new information and new energy industries.

Seeking Opportunities in Cooperation Suzuki and Toyota Deepen Business Alliance in India
According to LiveMint, Suzuki Motor Corp., parent company of Toyota Motor Co. and Maruti Suzuki India Ltd., is deepening business cooperation in all areas except equity alliances and competing in the changing car market.
Since Suzuki and Toyota first announced their cooperation in the fields of green energy, security, information technology and mutual supply of products and components, the negotiations between the two sides have lasted for two years.
Suzuki's Indian subsidiary, Maluti Suzuki, is the largest local automaker, while Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. ranks sixth in India. Further cooperation between Toyota and Suzuki may help Maluti consolidate its position as a leading automaker in India.
Toyota has noticed that Suzuki's production process is simpler and more efficient than the company's inherent "Toyota Way", especially in a cost-sensitive market like India, where the "Toyota Way" is more organized, but more complex and time-consuming because it is based on the "Kaizen concept".

Chongqing Feilong Jiang Li has an independent rubber and plastic workshop, which mainly produces body rubber products, such as bushings, sealing rings and so on. In order to better realize the process and satisfy the design concept, and to ensure the bushing in normal working state more effectively in the process of vehicle assembly, Chongqing Feilong Jiang Li will choose a suitable reference point as the initial zero angle of rubber bushing, which is regarded as the best working state of bushing. In order to keep the best working condition as long as possible, Feilong Jiangli will choose the most common working condition of the whole vehicle as the initial zero angle of the village set. Generally speaking, it is considered that the normal working condition of a car is no-load or half-load, that is to say, the landing state. The corresponding bushing assembly process at this time is called landing tightening technology, that is, tightening the rubber bushing after the vehicle landing. Feilongjiangli's rubber bushing is processed by ingredient, stamping and injection moulding. Each process has strict quality control procedures. The finished bushing is mainly used on Chang'an CS35 and CS75 models.

The most important component of the water pump is the pump shell and the inner parts of bearing and the bearing. To improve the pump, the most important thing is to optimize and improve the two parts. The following is a detailed introduction to the improvement of the two parts.
1. to improve the pump shell. When disassembly the pump to inspect the failure, there are a large number of debris seriously affect the quality of the pump and work efficiency. In this case, we can reduce the two holes used for drainage on the pump shell to one, and remove the drain holes on the upper part of the transmitter. This can greatly reduce the small particles and sundries into the pump, thus greatly reducing the interference of sundries on the pump and the other bad.
2. to improve the bearing. In the case of the failure of the bearing, we are generally sealed, the lubricating oil used by the bearing, the ball of the bearing and the bearing itself. So we should have a solution to these parts
3. to improve gasket. The traditional design is to design the sealing test as a double mouth seal, so the advantage of the design is that two ports are all frictional with the bearing, the roughness of the bearing surface is more appropriate and the wear of the lip is relatively slow; but the disadvantage is that a large amount of dust can be directly entered into the middle of the mouth and bearing, so that the plate will be used for a period of time. The interference between the bearing and the bearing decreases, thus losing the original function of the seal. There are two ways to improve it: the first is the sealing week of the bearing with double, and the sealing area is lengthened properly and the thickness of the chip mouth is thickened accordingly. The method is to change the original double mouth into the three form of the seal and seal the seal. The advantage of this structure is that the outer lip and mouth have increased the seal design, which can resist many dust. However, this method also has shortcomings, the mouth and the reverse cap friction, the surface roughness of the surface of the cover is relatively poor, it is very easy to wear and tear seal test, resulting in sealing failure.
4. to improve the lubricating oil. The bearing of the automobile pump is a more special bearing unit. Its environment is mostly temperature, humidity and dust, and the temperature of the water usually reaches about one thousand degrees, so the lubricating oil of the bearing is required. From our analysis of the fault, the lubricating oil in the bearing of the fault appears discolourable, which means that the grease in the lubricating oil is not enough, so the lubricating oil manufacturer should be required to increase the fat content of the lubricating oil so as to ensure the better protection of the bearing.
5. to Improve the contact ball of the bearing. Balls in bearing are important parts to ensure normal operation of bearings, but there are more and more damage to rolling balls. When measuring the hardness of the ball, it is found that most of the balls do not meet the required hardness requirements, which makes the bearings greatly wear at high speed and finally breaks down completely. Therefore, we should strictly supervise the production quality of the manufacturers, guarantee the hardness of the ball and pass the quality, so that the fundamental problem of bearing damage can be effectively solved.
I recently purchased a 2017 Rav 4 LE and it came with the standard rear view mirror so, I purchased a Gentex Autodimming mirror with Homelink and compass. It works great except for the fact that the chassis of the mirror is thicker and it bumps against the plastic housing for the radar on the windshield, preventing me from angling the mirror correctly. So, I have to ride around with the plastic radar housing removed. What I need is a swivel neck extension for the mirror (to bring it out, away from the windshield a bit more) but for the life of me, I cant find any on the internet. Can ANYONE provide any links or point me in the right direction? I have attached a generic picture that points to the piece i need to extend or get an extender for, or even replace for a longer piece. Thanks
