GAC Aion LX with 1,000 parsecs of range.

Someone posted this picture on Imgur:

They just said "China’s Guangzhou Automobile Corporation (GAC) to produce electric first-ever SUV with a range of 1,000km on a single charge" and was downvoted.

Why? For not providing more information? A lack of source? Some people just want to watch the world burn?

EVs have slowly been rising in popularity and have proven to be an alternative to the internal combustion engine, at least to an extent. The introduction of solid-state batteries is expected to bring EVs to the next level, although they are far from mass production. However, the Chinese carmaker GAC could get ahead of the game with their latest Aion LX. While many EVs currently on sale struggle to do 350 miles on a single charge, the new Aion LX promises over 620 miles (1,000 km) of emissions-free driving.
The original version came out in 2019 and had 404 miles of range.
On the other hand, the 562-mile (904 km) range was achieved at 36 degrees Celsius (over 95 degrees Fahrenheit) and 90 percent humidity. We won’t get into the scientific part of it, but essentially heat and humidity reduce range and, in the long run, battery life. In fact, tests have shown that at 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) EVs lose around 15 percent of their maximum range, on average, with some nearing 20 percent.
As for the 2022 GAC, prices in China start from the equivalent of around $38,000. This gets you the base version with one electric motor, which produces 184 horsepower and has a range of 311 miles (500 km). The top-of-the-line model comes in at around $54,000 and has two electric motors (one on each axle), with a total output of 408 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (700 Nm). This is also where you get that 620-mile (1,000 km) range.
For now, the record-holder for the biggest EV range is the Tesla Model S Long Range, which claims 405 miles (652 km) of range WLTP.
There is a slideshow version that says "The Aion LX actually cmae."

They are making up words now?!

Also "[T]he 620-miel model costs around $54,000."
Miel is Spanish for honey, so obviously this comes with over 600 bottles of honey.

Yay! Honey!

Do bees come standard under the hood?

How long would it take to charge? https://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-ne...-ar192304.html

So @200kwh battery using 220 v home circuit to start with, you need probably a minimum 50 amp circuit which gives you about 13 hours recharge time and enough heat to keep my house warm in a snowstorm.

And that is Kleenex tissue engineering
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.

1,000 - km

Until they provide the specifics, they'll be under fire. And rightly so.
