“The next Chapter in the history of the brands Jaguar and Land Rover will become the most exciting and challenging in our history. Premiere of the legendary Defender, investments in clean, smart and attractive models, electrification and modernization of the production will be part of a competitive and thriving company,” said JLR CEO Ralph Shpet.

In a report by the end of 2018 Jaguar Land Rover reports worldwide were sold 592 708 vehicles (forecast to be minus 4.6% compared to the record 2017), and the Land Rover brand “dropped” by 6.9% (411 875 cars), while Jaguar, in contrast, grows at 1.2% (180 833). The strong fall in sales in China (-21,6%) was partially offset by increases in North America (+7,2%) and other countries (+7.3 per cent). However, the results in the UK (-1.5 per cent) and Europe (-7,8%) are not encouraging.

The causes of the trouble are known to the buyers turned away from the diesel engines came into force new economy WLTP, the pound hit a looming Brexit, oil poured into the fire, trading war of the USA with China. To save the situation is called “transformation program”, which among other things requires spending cuts of 2.5 billion pounds within 18 months. Therefore, by the way, JLR will miss the March auto show in Geneva.

This year’s great premiere from JLR will be only one (Defender), but will go on sale undeniable hit — the Range Rover Evoque is the second generation. Russian prices have already named. Crossovers will be with us in April.

Need to reduce not only costs but also the staff. Officially confirmed the dismissal of 4,500 people. It’s about 10% of the total staff in the UK. With 1,500 employees volunteer force left the company in 2018. the closure of factories not talking, although the production site in Solihull due to the fall of demand was stayed for 14 days in October, and the factory at Castle Bromwich passed in December on a three-day working week.

However, the new complex in Slovakia is open. Investments aimed at the development of engineering units in Manchester, Ireland and Hungary. The centre in Wolverhampton from the end of the year, mastered the production of electric powertrains, and in Hams Hall will do battery. “We are taking decisive actions to ensure long-term growth, despite the many challenges facing the industry. The agenda for change and Accelerate Charge (“Charging and acceleration”) ensures that the opportunities created by the growing demand for Autonomous and connected electric machine, we use the maximum,” — said the boss Ralph Shpet.

Such transport is often used by children and adolescents. If the norm is accepted, then the audience may be significantly reduced.

Control over the actions of the owners of gyrometers, Segways, sigview and other small electric vehicles considered in the state Duma of the Russian Federation: on this topic was a round table. It is proposed to equate it to the moped: in this case, these “drivers” will be subject to the requirements of the rules of the road. The initiative came from the head of the Union of pedestrians Vladimir Sokolov.

Riding a scooter

According to the current legislation, to mopeds (light quadricycles) or the desired license category “M” or any other open category (the most common – “B”). If they equate gyrometer, Segways, etc., then their owners will also need a driver’s license.

Regulation segment is necessary because of pedestrians. During the round table the attendees remembered several cases: the first man on the electric skateboard was hit by a woman who fell and suffered a severe spinal injury; second driver electric skateboard collided with the pensioner, causing the latter died on the spot. Accident, these incidents can not be called, since from the point of view of the law in the pedestrian zone and collided with two pedestrians.

Segways - Journee Sans Voiture, Paris 2015

According to Vladimir Sokolova, similar cases are not uncommon (however, the statistics he had not). In order to be able to attract such “drivers” to justice, they should be subject to the relevant rules. Today they have been officially recognized by pedestrians and, in fact, can move in respective areas at a speed from 20 km/h on gyrometer to 50 km/h on a Segway.

Vladimir Sokolov offers to prohibit the movement of the small electric vehicle on the sidewalks. Agree not all. During the round table a proposal was made simply to limit the speed for those traveling on the Segways, Segways, etc: for pedestrian areas – not above 25 km/h, for bike paths, 60 km/h. the Catch, however, is that this electric vehicle has no speedometer.

It is curious that Russia is now allowed to create “Bike zone”, where it is allowed to stop motorists and motorcyclists, provided that they give way to all other traffic participants, and their speed will not exceed 20 km/h. it Turns out, the owners sigview will be able to drive on such roads three times faster? Or in this case, also will be subject to the terms and moped riders?

In Russia in 2018, has sold about 32 thousand Segways and about 10 thousand monowheels. Often buy them for children and teenagers. Recall that the right category “M” is issued from the age of 16. This means that in case of approval the proposal of the head of the Union of pedestrians, the number of customers of sellers of small electric vehicle, most likely, will be considerably reduced.

Last summer Kolesa.ru reported on the proposal of the Deputy from the LDPR faction, which advocated the registration of alternative transport.

geely fy11

Geely fy11. От стандартного этот вариант отличается круговым обвесом в цвет кузова (вместо «чёрного пояса»), накладками на двери, двумя парами выпускных патрубков, затемнёнными элементами, алой вставкой в решётке и большими колёсами. Можно считать FY11 кросс-седаном, как Renault Arkana.

From the standard this is a circular body kit in body color (instead of black belt), lining on the door, two pairs of exhaust pipes, darkened elements, al insert in the grille and large wheels. FY11 can be considered cross-sedans, like Renault Arkana.

The company Geely to be congratulated on the development of the first model on the platform of the CMA (not to be confused with BMA). It unites coupe FY11 with a compact “Swede” Volvo XC40 and differs from Satin, resting on its own “cart” Geely. The mid-size crossover with “crushed” the roof, the idea will become the biggest and most expensive SUV in the range, and therefore, waiting for the flagship we have.

The issue of the official pictures shows about the imminent premiere. However, the Russian office Geely today sent along a teaser with the words about the similarities of the car with a predatory cat, grille “in the form of a concentric universe” and running lights like the “digital boom”. Say, a design center in Shanghai has found a new direction.

Recall the dimensions: length, width, height — 4605×1878×1643 mm, wheelbase — 2700. It is not surprising that the dimensions of the rookie close to the platform model Lynk & Co 01: 4530×1855×1654, 2730 mm.

Architecture interior Geely FY11 is more similar to a compact Geely SX11than all the other models in the CMA-kneading. This is a standard interior, no red inserts and stitching, and veneers “under carbon”. It’s funny that the handrail on the console can be confused with a “poker” of the Parking brake.

Under the hood of the SUV FY11 if prescribed turboservice 2.0 (in Swedish terminology T5), derated from 254 to 238 HP at the same torque 350 N•m. there are rumors about the use volvovsky Turbotronic 1.5 in the hybrid setup of the PHEV. In short, the forecasts are also on the Coupe, rolling brand Lynk & Co. Where, by the way, coupe from Volvo?

A list of VIN codes of the vehicles falling under this opinion, as usual, can be downloaded from the website of Rosstandart on the link.

Interestingly, in the last couple of A4/A5 spoke in Russia as recently as November 2018 and also because threaded connections. One time improperly was screwed on the fuel rail. And besides, both of these models fall under a service campaign in the summer and fall about the potential of failure of the coolant pump.
