Giant BASF, who purchased paint products, many automakers which makes annual forecast of colors car Automotive Color Trends. Season 2018-2019, “trending” turned out to be shades of blue and gray. In North America for the second year in a row the leader of the Atomium blue Sky.

The Ministry plans to 2020 to require automobile companies operating in Russia, go to paints and varnishes domestic production, as well as tires, released in the countries of the EEU. According to”Kommersant”, this requirement will be enshrined in amendments to the decree of the government as a measure to deepen localization. On a plan of officials, the staining of the Russian cars must be at least 30% of the paint, in the case of light commercial vehicles you plan to share 50% trucks 70% for parts and assemblies — 90%.

Meanwhile, the “four rings” boast partial matted coatings. The technology is similar to sandblasting: the top layer of varnish removed a few nanometers, and near glossy get matte areas. New way of personalization tested on Audi Q2 and an Audi R8.

With the transition to the domestic tyre no problems. In 2017 in Russia issued 46.8 million tires, of which 17.1 million were exported. Tire manufacturers are ready to meet the needs of the industry. But lucky colors harder. In our country there is not enough high-quality raw materials, nor high-tech processing, so, for example, Hyundai and KIA are buying imported paint from firms BASF and KCC. By the way, the latter works plant in Pavlovsky Posad, where the outfit colors AVTOVAZ, Ford and Volkswagen, but most of the raw materials are imported from Germany.

According to market participants, if the Russian paint was competitive in quality and price, they would have already been used in the automotive industry. While the new requirements are likely lobbied for chemical companies, “vdohnovitsya” attempt of the Ministry to force the car manufacturers to switch to the Russian aluminium. This was due to the need to support “RUSAL”, which fell under U.S. sanctions.

Mr. Bollore 55 years. Career he in 1990 started the company Michelin where he worked until 2005. Then there was the firm Faurecia, where Thierry in 2012 moved to Renault for the post of Vice-President. In February 2018 (see photo) Bollore became chief operating officer Groupe Renault.

The Board of Directors of Renault, gathered yesterday evening for an emergency meeting, took action in connection with the arrest of Carlos Ghosn. The company found him “temporarily incapacitated”, but retained for the prisoner boss of all leadership positions, unlike the Nissan, instantly replace functionary with each managerial position. Acting CEO appointed Thierry Bollore the second person in Renault, which was considered the most likely successor of Gon.

Mitsubishi formally belongs to Nissan, so has behaved exactly like the parent company. The day of the arrest gon was “promptly removed” from the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors Mitsu. Command “diamonds” solo, Osamu Masuko not used to.

During the transition period (how long it will last, nobody knows) the Board Renault is lead independent Director of Philip LaHaye. It needs to regularly collect the Council to protect the interests of the company and sustainability of the Alliance. At the same time prenosniki decided to make a request to Nissan to be “based on principles of transparency, trust and mutual respect set out in the Charter of the Alliance” has provided all available information associated with the internal investigation regarding the Rut.

As CEO of Nissan Carlos Ghosn in February 2017 passed , Hiroto Saikawa that came in the Nissan a month after the end of the University of Tokyo in 1977. That is, 41 of the 65 years of his life, Hiroto dedicated to Nissan. “In addition to regret, I feel a big disappointment, discouragement, despair, anger and resentment,” said Saikawa about the arrest of a Rut.

The second main figure in the scandal (after the Rut) now becomes the chief of a Nissan Hiroto Saikawa. He was considered the favorite of Carlos, his protégée and “faithful Lieutenant” and now criticizes the arrested boss like no other. They say tension Saikaly a Rut lately reached the limit values. Hiroto opposes the merger of Renault and Nissan, which, according to Ghosn, would have made the Alliance “irreversible.” Sources Financial Times testify that if not for the arrest of Carlos, the merger would happen “within a few months.” Saikawa clearly wants to be the Nissan was out of the Alliance and gained full independence.

Meanwhile Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun revealed the circumstances of the arrest. Though Carlos did not know about any investigation and went to Japan for a meeting with the Governor of Tokyo. Gon was arrested late on Monday evening when I landed in Haneda airport, where it was waiting for prosecutors. Among other things, the case alleged, it appears the real estate, including residences in Lebanon and Brazil, which Nissan acquired for the suspect.

Free from the machinery space the Volvo will offer the public a range of interactive demonstrations. We will talk about such services as delivery of the goods in the trunk, a subscription to car, car sharing and Autonomous movement.

A provocative advertising campaign , “It’s not a phone” I got an explanation. Make Volvo announced that “no show” at an auto show in Los Angeles, which opens to the press on November 28. In the center of the stand will show off the inscription “This is not a car”. According to planner product strategy Maarten Lewenstam, Swedish brand, refusing to demonstrate the machines, will present his vision for the future of mobility. “Instead of the presentation of the concept car we’ll talk about the concept car. We do not receive the award for best car in show, but we have it on hand. Because it’s not a car show,” said the Manager.

Since the advent of the motor show the car has always been a Central element of the exhibition, but things are changing: industry, machinery, and expectations. Brand perception by consumers, according to Volvo, “is now more important than chrome, leather or horsepower”.

Volvo boss håkan Samuelsson develops the idea: “Our sector is changing. We no longer just build and sell cars and provide our customers with freedom of movement”. Note that recently the company has refused from participation in the international auto show, calling them “unsustainable”. Now Volvo seems to have resorted to guerrilla tactics and trying to ruin the exhibition from the inside. This is another level where shes pushing back. The Manifesto “This Is Not A Car” easily turns into “This Is Not A Volvo”, which, coupled with the well-known Chinese component is unlikely to increase positive brand perception.
