‘New Kim’ The Most Expensive Pigeon In The World With A Price Reaching $ 1.9 Million

A female pigeon named New Kim became the most expensive pigeon in the world after being bought in Belgium at the highest price in history.

The online auction center Pigeon Paradise (PIPA) revealed that the pigeon was bought by buyers from China for $ 1.9 million last Sunday.

“I believe it’s a world record, there has never been an officially documented sale at such a price,” said Pigeon Paradise chief Nikolaas Gyselbrecht.

“I didn’t think we could reach that amount,” he added.

With the sale of New Kim, it has broken the sales record of a pigeon named Armando which was previously sold for $ 1.19 million last year.

New Kim, the best two-year-old pigeon breed from Antwerp was initially auctioned starting at $ 237 and rising to $ 1.56 million in less than 90 minutes.

It is reported that in China, pigeon racing can result in huge victories. Maybe that is the reason for Chinese buyers to buy New Kim at such an expensive price.

Mercedes Unveils Electric Compact SUV In Attempt To Outdo Tesla

Published

on

By

As part of plans to take on rival Tesla Inc and sell more emission-free vehicles to customers to reach goals in Europe and China, Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz unveiled on Wednesday the EQA, a new electric compact SUV.

The EQA will initially have a range of 426 kilometers (265 miles), with a 500km model coming later, the luxury brand carmaker said in a video presentation, the first of many electric vehicles Mercedes-Benz expects to introduce this year.

On Feb 4, the SUV will go on sale in Europe at what Britta Seeger’s board of management described as “very attractive price points.”

Last year, sales of electric vehicles (EV) took off in Europe as carmakers struggled to meet the CO2 emissions quotas of the European Union. In particular, revenues got a boost from subsidies included in the economic stimulus initiatives carried out in France and Germany.

During the first three quarters of 2020, sales of fully electric and plug-in hybrid models grew 122 percent across the EU.

The EQA is identified by Mercedes-Benz as an “urban entry model” and its “sustainability, versatility and fresh look” was touted by board member Seeger.

With its large investments in fossil-fuel cars, electric carmaker Tesla has made a head start on traditional carmakers and has dominated global sales. The mass-market Tesla Model 3 is the world’s best-selling EV, led by Renault’s Zoe in distant second place.

As well as pollution quotas, in some markets, carmakers face bans on fossil-fuel vehicles that are effective as early as 2030.
