The Ford Sollers plant in Vsevolozhsk (pictured), according to the newspaper “Vedomosti”that in December, the idle will remain “frozen” until mid-January. It produced Foci and Mondeo, but with a capacity of 160,000 vehicles per year is about eight times less. “Until the end of spring no layoffs at the plant should not be”, — writes the edition.

Manual Ford announced the “early consultations” with his labor Council, Union representatives and other stakeholders. The “consultation” leaves no doubt that preparing mass layoffs and plant closures. Obviously, without such painful measures “the implementation of a comprehensive strategy for change” is simply impossible.

Reform is needed to reduce costs, increase profits and strengthen the position of the “oval” brand, primarily in Europe. Reuters notes: in the third quarter division of the Ford of Europe reported a loss of $282 million (previous year loss was $192 million), so the reduction will “thousands of jobs”. Staff Ford of Europe is estimated at 53,000.

If yesterday we were wondering when the new Explorer will arrive in Russia, but today we are no longer sure that he did we will. The old Explorer is going in Elabuga (Tatarstan) along with the Kuga and the van Ford Transit. In 2017, was issued 17 000 machines at a power plant in 85 000.

The official release of the Ford pays special attention to the joint venture company in Russia — Ford Sollers. It will be the subject of “strategic research”. Now considered several options for restructuring of the joint venture. The decision will be made in the period from April to June 2019. In Sollers in response to questions Drive repeated the above and said that there is a revision of plans, but nothing concrete though yet. This means a lot of room for speculation, because it is easy to assume that Ford will close all factories in our country and leave it at the example of GM.

The newspaper “Vedomosti” referring to Ford’s dealers reported that in 2019, the company Ford Sollers will be able to sell in Russia not more than 53 000 vehicles, therefore, the closure of one or two nedozagruzheny plants seems logical. About the same sources say Autoreview, saying that in addition to the Assembly vans Transit in Yelabuga Ford has nothing left, and the plants in Vsevolozhsk and Naberezhnye Chelny (there are EcoSport and Fiesta) will do something else. Removed from Russian pipelines of the car or will be imported or will disappear. As an option — with the face of the earth, as global lineup will change a lot.

“Inspired” by the Mustang electric crossover will be released in 2020. (Here are the third-party imagination of the artist.) Together with the Bronco, which probably will debut in April, the SUV Edge , and by Mustang electric car will enter the “import portfolio”. EcoSport and Kuga will also survive.

“We believe that the division of Ford of Europe may require a reduction of production capacity and headcount by 20-30%,” says Adam Jonas, analyst firm Morgan Stanley. The “blue oval” is in Europe, losses for several years, and now is targeting six per cent profit (the plan is called Sprint to 6 Reset and Redesign).

Now the company produces in the Old world “three customer-focused business groups” — commercial transport, passenger transport and import from USA. The COMTRANS is made Alliance with Volkswagen. All the cars waiting for the inevitable electrification. Imported from America will be “niche icons” type of Mustang.

Trimming the model line began yesterday. Now with the trade unions negotiated the discontinuation of the compact MPV C-Max and Grand C-Max in the German plant in Serlui. At the same time the French company in Bordeaux will curtail production of automatic transmissions, and two British headquarters will be merged into one — with the technical centre Ford Dunton in the South East of Essex. Details of their strategy boss James Hackett will present “in coming months” as soon as completed consultation with the trade unions and other stakeholders.

audi a5 sportback

Audi a5,Audi a5 sportback. В отличие от «а-четвёртой», обновление A5 не затронуло дверные панели. Но традиционный для середины жизненного цикла набор перемен соблюдён: бамперы, решётка радиатора и вся оптика — новые.

In contrast to the “a-fourth”, the update A5 did not affect the door panel. But traditional mid-life cycle recruitment changes observed: bumpers, grille and optics all — new.

Pyatidverka Audi A5 Sportback the current generation is available in 2016 without radical change. However, on the nose of the planned update, which should go according to the script already redrawn the family A4. Until the end of the year (probably Frankfurt in September) all secrets will be revealed, and while our forecasts.

The interior is close to this photoset in the picture not included, but we know that it can wait for “a-fourth”: there will be a new touchscreen Central display with a diagonal of 10.1 that will allow you to remove the MMI controller on the tunnel.

Large honeycomb in the grille of the test sample implying that we got a copy with the S line package. And it looks like there will not be a controversial design element: false air intake at the junction of the grille and hood, like the A4/S4. But the prototype of Sportbike there was another fake — huge trapezoidal exhaust pipes at the edges of the rear bumper, alas, purely decorative. By the way, the recent spy pictures of the facelifted S5 Coupe showed the same design of the nose of the car, only exhaust pipes she had some “honest” four kruglyashey.

Although the headlight there from a distance resembles the optics of A4, in fact, their shape is not identical. But the new running lights/turn signals in the form of a dotted line on top edge — similar to “a fourth.” The front bumper is also similar to the A4 model and still not the same as the number of elements.

Correction appearance update “a fifth” is not limited. As the pyatidverka, and coupe we’re waiting for changes in the engine lineup — in particular, adding a moderate hybrid systems based on a simple 12-volt network for the four engines and on the basis of 48-volt — V6 (for example, the April technical update S5). All the new clothes in appearance, interior and electronics will move later on the “hot” model of the Audi RS5, which we can assume a small upgrade impact (now there is a 2.9 V6 turbo engine at 450 HP and 600 N•m).
