After cost of disilicate Volkswagen is committed in different ways to reduce costs, including for development.

The Memorandum of understandingsigned by Ford and Volkswagen in June, laid the groundwork for closer ties between the two giants. In the industry started talking about forming a new superalliance like Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. However, the representative of Ford in the comments for Motor1.com clearly limited the conditions of cross-shareholdings and merger will not. But cooperation in some areas, the partners will increase significantly. Details of the General Director of Volkswagen group Herbert Diess should open on 16 November during the announcement of the ten-year plan for the group.

Both firms are unusually large Luggage advanced and exotic designs. For example, recently Volkswagen group (parent lab CODE Lab in San Francisco) along with a firm D-Wave has used a quantum computer to develop a system of traffic control, more perfect than the existing ones.

Insiders say that Diss is considering technical cooperation with Ford (and possibly with other partners) as a means to accelerate the spread of electric vehicles and advance the technology of Autonomous movement. The last line from Ford is at a very high level. In the same Volkswagen group a leader in this field is Audi. Such cooperation could undermine the role of the four rings that are generally regarded as the leading technological and research development center, VW group, said the publication Automotive News.

Crossing development in the framework of the Volkswagen is not surprising, but now there is a course for greater centralization. In particular, it brands appear a lot of electric models on several common platforms. It is not excluded that some of them will go to Ford.

Other areas of collaboration and cost reduction have repeatedly surfaced in the press. This komtrans (up to models-clones) and the potential Association of Amarok with the Ranger. And engine, software, alternative power-plant and much more. In the case of the leading pickups in the draft would just be a Ford. As for hydrogen fuel cells, on the contrary, Ferdowsi could get a lot of help from the Germans. In this area in the VW main role, again, with the company Audi.

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.
