“We took a fresh look at the growth of electrified vehicles and we know that we must reserve additional production capacity, given our plans for electric vehicles,” said Ford President of global operations Joe Hinrichs.

Electric crossover of the brand , Ford will be produced from 2020 to plant in Cuautitlan (Mexico), the company said. Apparently means yet to be named model, whose appearance is inspired by the Mustang, only a novice will be “upbeat and a five-door”. This electric car must compete with the recently introduced SUV Tesla Y.

Among the announced projects have Autonomous transport. In 2021, the new production center in Southeast Michigan will be the first mass produced unmanned fords, aimed at the commercial sector, the delivery of goods and food (see photo) plus acting as Autonomous taxi.

Following this, the SUV will follow a cohort of electric cars on a “flexible battery architecture of the next generation”, which prescribe the plant Flat Rock, Michigan (for which it will expand and there will increase the number of shifts). We believe it will be adapted to Ford modular electric volkswagenaudi platform MEB. Such borrowing is expected in the light of the newly established technological Alliance of Ford and Volkswagen.

Among the production plans, there is also the issue with 2021 the new generation Transit Connect for North America at a plant in Hermosillo, Mexico. Ferdowsi note that this decision will increase and the loading of the plants components in the United States and Canada. Connect previously collected only in Spain and Turkey.

In General, the direction of electric mobility around the world, the company will invest $11.1 billion, of which more than $850 million in 2023 will be relocated to Flat Rock, and together with investments for the launch of Mustang, a new generation of production facilities in Michigan will receive $900 million Mustangcobra electric crossover should be on sale by the end of 2020, and the mass of the battery model on a promising platform, we expect roughly in 2022-2023.

Splitter and air intakes at the “forty-fifth” (photo), oddly enough, look less aggressive than the younger model And 35. However, the Panamericana grille with vertical teeth makes clear — who is the top option.

Mercedes-AMG has pleased us with three events over the past few days. On the last weekend in the paddock “24 hours nürburgring” it showed the public a pre-production hot hatch A 45. Still painted colorful stripes car was disguised much less than previously seen samples.

The second news: the premiere of redesigned racing shell Mercedes-AMG GT3, whose sale to customer teams starting at the end of this year at a price of 399 000 euros. Externally, the newcomer easier to spot on the radiator grille: it has increased in size, and the vertical teeth are provided less frequently (them here two less than it was).

According to the publication Motor1.com A 45 will have two electronically controlled clutch that transmit traction to the rear wheels. Apparently, in their interactions and the secret announced drift mode, which is not expected from a car built on a FWD platform. The company itself about the design details of the hot hatch has not yet spoken, but very in detail told about the motor 2.0 M 139 — the most healthy in the world serial turboservice (421 HP, 500 N•m variations S and 387 HP, 480 N•m “in the database”). Premiere of the Mercedes A 45 is scheduled for July.

After road racing AMG GT has received new headlights and taillights, but more important than that the car is redesigned aerodynamic components (splitter, side wings and side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser). The promised increase in downforce.

Also at the Nurburgring, the Germans presented the new Mercedes-AMG GT3. Changes in the machine is aimed not only at improving outcomes, but also on cost reduction teams per season. Thus, the aspirated V8 6.3 now rarely need to touch (increased its survivability in race mode), and the power to redraw body parts in the bow to better protect the units in a collision, which reduces the cost of repairs after a racing incident.

In the cabin of the GT3 has a new rubberized coating on the steering wheel, improved drinking system and ventilation of the helmet.

Design optimization reduced the time required to change the settings of the splitter and anticrime that it is important for a quick pit stop. Implemented a new Drop system Start (automatic start of the engine when the “fall” of the machine with built-in pnevmomaketov). For the first time in the world, by the conviction of the company, in GT3 there was a system of automatic time recording operation of all components.

And this is a different model, civil. Curved wings kenardy installed not only on the front bumper, but even on the front fenders behind the wheels. Additional “blades” implanted in the front bumper. The machine promises to be interesting in terms of aerodynamics.

Simplified access to air filter and reduced the total number of threaded connections to facilitate the work of mechanics in the pits. Another bonus of the machine 2019: stronger luminous flux core and additional (for the 24-hour marathons) headlamps. The client team will appreciate these changes next season, but Mercedes will release a car for a few races already this year, for the final tests in “combat” environment.

Exhaust pipes changed the location but I can not vouch that this is the final version. Some footage of the tests suggest a very tightly tuned suspension.

The last while a curious rookie laps at the Nurburgring in camouflage film, where he shot paparrazi. It focused on the extreme track, but still road model named the Mercedes-AMG GT R EVO (the last two pictures in the news). She needs to be more powerful and faster than the supercar AMG GT R PRO (some commentators remember the traditional console Black Series, but insiders promise the EVO). Besides the obvious improvements of aerodynamics and other chassis characteristics to variations of EVO we should expect a growth of power biturbomotor 4.0 585 to 600-640 forces (roughly). The model will premiere or at the end of this year, or in 2020.
