As one of the earliest high-end brands in China, Starway’s initial route was really not smooth. Recently, however, with the launch of Eta Ursae Majoris and the "big changes" in the design and configuration of Lingyun and Lanyue, their sales have also increased significantly. When it comes to today’s electric vehicles, there is no need to accumulate technology in the fuel age, which greatly reduces the threshold for "new forces" to enter the industry, and also leads people to define "good cars" as "refrigerators, color TVs and big sofas". But personally, I think that only by building a good fuel car can we play electric cars more clearly. And the test drive of the Star Road Star Era has given us a satisfactory answer.
Speaking of the Star Road Star Era series, it is a "new force" born under the Star Road brand, such as Geely Galaxy, Changan Qiyuan, GAC Ai ‘an, and Chery’s own Fengyun and Jietu Shanhai, which belong to a special new energy series. The first car owned by Xingtu Xingyu Era is a wide-body coupe that looks very handsome. The new car is based on Chery’s brand-new high-end intelligent electric platform "E0X", and the core tone of this platform is "comfort". At the same time, under this platform, the intelligent S7 developed in cooperation with Huawei was born, which is relatively more intelligent.
In design, Star Age ES creates an elegant sense of movement. The front face adopts the phoenix-feather butterfly face designed by bionic elements, and the three-dimensional level formed by the slender light strip and the English logo of EXEED on the hood also inherits the family characteristics of this brand. Headlights do not adopt the split design of today’s bad customs, but a set of ISD intelligent interactive lights is designed at the position of the air guide below, which can display a variety of patterns, making the whole vehicle full of futuristic feeling and more in line with the public aesthetics.
On the side design, the slender body creates an extremely elegant atmosphere, and the design of the slip back is natural and the proportion of the body is extremely perfect. The length, width and height are 4945/1978/1480mm and the wheelbase is 3000mm respectively. The data of the whole vehicle also fully conforms to the positioning of a C-class car, and all the popular elements such as hidden door handles and frameless doors are also fully equipped.
The tail shape is relatively simple, the blackened penetrating taillights echo the front face, and the English logo of "EXEED" Star Way brand is embedded below, which is more layered.
At the same time, the new car is also equipped with an active electric tail, which is adjustable from 0-15 degrees to 2 gears, and can automatically rise and fall with the speed. It can also be controlled by the car screen, voice and mobile APP.
In the interior design, the whole vehicle creates a stronger sense of movement on the basis of minimalist style. The light-colored interior makes the car look more spacious, and the instrument is designed with a small size and closer to the windshield, which also avoids the excessive deviation of the line of sight when driving, and is also equipped with a HUD head-up display. The interior also uses a penetrating atmosphere lamp, which has the effect of breathing color change.
As for the car, the new car does not use the conjoined screen, but makes the size of the central control screen larger, and the built-in functional applications are also extremely rich. Lion AI full-scene voice assistant has multi-tone recognition and also has a certain language learning ability. The car is also equipped with a 960W 21-channel stereo and two main driver’s headrest stereos, providing exclusive functions such as immersion mode/navigation mode/private mode.
In terms of space, thanks to the brand-new pure electric architecture platform design, the cabin space utilization rate of Xingji ES is as high as 70.2%, the front seats are soft and well wrapped, and the waist support is also in place, which also effectively avoids the fatigue of long-term driving.
The rear row space is quite abundant, and it has obvious advantages in the same class, whether it is head space, leg space or lateral space. With the wide, comfortable and soft-touch seat settings, Xingyue ES can really compete with C-class cars of the same size, such as Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.
In terms of power, Star Road Star Era ES provides three motor configurations, among which the maximum power of two rear-drive models is 252 HP and 313 HP, and the peak torque is 356N·m and 425N·m respectively. The model we test-drive is the Ultra performance version with top matching, with comprehensive power of 480N·m, comprehensive torque of 663N·m, acceleration of 3.7s per 100 kilometers, comprehensive endurance of 650 kilometers, and proper super-running level. In the pure rear-wheel drive model, in addition to the 605 km and 570 km CLTC battery life, the 905 km version is also very eye-catching. It is not an exaggeration to say "far ahead" in the field of electric vehicles.
Of course, as a pure electric vehicle with two motors, it is not new to accelerate quickly. Such as the tidal wave and linear power output, we can "see who is on the road". Of course, as a generation growing up from the fuel age, the quiet driving feeling of electric vehicles may be too uniform. However, Xingyue ES has another specialty, that is, its chassis.
Star Age ES is equipped with intelligent air suspension+CDC electromagnetic damping system. It can use perceptual hardware and intelligent algorithm to preview the speed bump, adjust the suspension damping in advance, improve the ride comfort when passing through the speed bump, and suppress the roll when cornering. At the same time, in a variety of working conditions, it has four modes: energy saving, comfort, sports and self-definition, which can realize the height adjustment of-10 mm-+50 mm and make a car change into an SUV in seconds.
Under the actual experience, we can feel that this chassis has a strong sense of weight, especially in the comfortable mode, the vehicle is like a suspension, which can fully resolve the particles on the road surface and is very soft for the speed bump.
In sports mode, the suspension has a more tough "Q-bomb" texture, and at this time it is more inclined to a high-performance car. At the same time, with the front high-order double wishbone+rear five-bar independent suspension, especially the front double wishbone effectively enhances the grip of the front wheel when cornering, which makes the whole vehicle feel like "hitting where it points" when cornering, and with the precise steering, the excellent handling has achieved the feeling of integration of people and vehicles.
Judging from the performance of the whole vehicle, Star Road Star Era ES really looks like an international mature product. In particular, the comfort and compactness of the chassis, the quietness and advanced feeling reflected in driving, these subjective feelings really do not have a set of measurable data standards. However, if we compare the two brands of Volkswagen and Audi, we will find the obvious difference between them in NVH. And Star Age has indeed achieved the standards of luxury brands. Of course, this is not only a pile of configuration, but an overall adjustment level. As the first step of Xingtu brand’s transformation to new energy, such a product’s excellent product strength also shows full sincerity.

Rich Paul, the agent of Thick Eyebrow, revealed that Thick Eyebrow has reached a three-year contract with the Lakers with a maximum salary of $186 million. The average salary of this contract reached $62 million, which is the highest average salary renewal contract in the NBA.
Today, it is the first day that Thick Eyebrows get the qualification to renew their contracts in advance. According to ESPN, Pelinka, the general manager of the Lakers, contacted Ricky Paul at the first time and sent him this high contract renewal. And heavy eyebrows didn’t think too much, and readily agreed.
Also, the previous news was that the maximum amount of thick eyebrows should be only 170 million in three years, but the Lakers directly gave 186 million dollars. Juxin is more than 60 million yuan, so we really have to agree quickly, lest the Lakers go back on their word. After this renewal contract comes into effect, thick eyebrows will become the highest-paid player in NBA history. Some people may say, what about the previous five-year $304 million contract in Jaylen Brown? Jaylen Brown’s share is the largest contract, exceeding $300 million. On average, the annual salary is $60.08 million, not as much as heavy eyebrows. The maximum salary varies with the salary cap every year, so the annual salary of Brown’s contract is $52.15 million, $56.32 million, $60.49 million, $64.66 million and $68.83 million respectively.
Thick eyebrows and the Lakers have two years left in their original contract, plus a new contract extension of three years. So the annual salary for the next five years is 40.6 million US dollars, 43.2 million US dollars, 57.6 million US dollars, 62.2 million US dollars and 66.8 million US dollars respectively. Therefore, this is really the biggest contract that the Lakers can give thick eyebrows. At present, the five NBA5 contracts with the highest average salary are $62 million, $60.7 million from Brown, $59.9 million from Lillard, $58.7 million from Booker and $58.7 million from Downs. Did you expect Downs to get such a big contract? Among them, Lillard is 33 years old, Thick Eyebrows is 30 years old, Downs is 27 years old, and Brown and Booker are 26 years old.
It can be seen that the Lakers want to keep the peak of heavy eyebrows in the Lakers as much as possible. Although it is said that thick eyebrows are fragile, there is such a set of data. In the past seven seasons, thick eyebrows have played 400 games, surpassing Embiid’s 394 games, Curry’s 387 games, Owen’s 362 games and Durant’s 345 games. That’s it. I haven’t come up with Leonard’s data yet Therefore, although the heavy eyebrows are brittle, they are actually not so brittle. Small injuries do continue, but at least they have not been seriously injured. And compared with other superstars, the appearance rate of thick eyebrows is ok. Moreover, the Lakers also intend to reinforce the fifth position to share the pressure for the thick eyebrows and avoid more injuries.
One more thing to note is that there are two years left in James’ contract with the Lakers, which means that the year when James’ contract expires is the year when Heavy Eyebrows’ new contract takes effect. So is it understandable that the Lakers are preparing for James’ retirement and keeping the team competitive?
It’s just that the ability of heavy eyebrows to lead the team alone is really not excellent. I don’t know if the 32-year-old heavy eyebrows will still have the explosive power of the pelican period. Of course, there is no shortage of attraction in Los Angeles. Will other super giants join after James retires?
This season’s Real Madrid failed to achieve the desired results, and Benzema failed to continue the excellent performance of last season. Although Real Madrid will still renew the contract with Benzema, it may even let Benzema end his career at Real Madrid. However, Real Madrid still have to prepare for Benzema’s decline. They can’t put all the pressure on a 35-year-old veteran, even if the veteran’s name is Benzema. Therefore, Real Madrid has also started the plan to find a successor, but the plan is not going so smoothly.
At present, there are many excellent center players in the world football, from Lu Kaku and lautaro of Inter Milan to Osman of Naples, Harland of Manchester City and Kane of Tottenham Hotspur, all of them are hot players in the transfer market. However, judging from the current news, except Harland, all these players are disdained by Real Madrid, including Kane. Of course, Kane is too old, and his 30-year-old age will make him unable to guarantee his state in the next few seasons. Real Madrid is not willing to take such risks, while Osmain is because of his injury.
Harland and Mbappé were the best targets for Real Madrid, but the relationship between Mbappé and Real Madrid broke down because of the transfer failure last season, and it was difficult for Harland to succeed when he was at home in Manchester City. Therefore, although Real Madrid has enough transfer fee budget and its players are attractive enough, it is still very difficult to get a top center to join in the summer transfer period. And it should be noted that it is difficult for both Benzema and the top center they want to accept the arrangement of substitutes.
Since it is impossible to get a top center, Real Madrid will change its signing strategy and focus on other strikers. Rishalison from Tottenham has become one of their choice targets. The Brazilian striker, who just joined Tottenham this season, is not happy in Tottenham. He scored only three goals for the team in 33 games, which completely failed to play his own value, which also made his worth decline. If Real Madrid wants to find Benzema’s successor, Rishalisson is definitely not the right candidate. If it is just to find a substitute player, it may be considered.
The reason why Rishalison’s name will appear in Real Madrid’s selection list is because of Ancelotti’s relationship. They once cooperated at Everton, and Rishalison played very well, so it is possible to reunite this time. However, it is still very difficult to join a top team like Real Madrid with its past signing strategy and Rishalisson’s performance on the court. If Real Madrid really want to make signings, they can find a more suitable target.
