F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

May 21, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

The decision leaves a two-weekend gap between the finish of the European season on September 11 in Monza and the start of the six-race flyaway series in Singapore on October 2.

Shortly after the Russian invasion on Ukraine began, the Sochi event was cancelled, along with the event’s ongoing contract.

F1 quickly began exploring for alternate locations in order to retain the overall number of races this year at 23.

Qatar was an early candidate. Last year, the country staged a race at the Doha circuit, and it will do so again in 2023. Due to its commitment to the FIFA World Cup, it had intended to skip this year.

The September date was deemed to be early enough to avoid clashing with football tournament preparations, but there were worries about the high heat and its possible influence on the turnout.

The notion of a second race in Singapore a week before the conventional grand prix and perhaps at a different time of day arose throughout the Melbourne weekend.

However, logistical concerns prevented F1 from transferring directly from a European site to Singapore.

The money was crucial to any arrangement. F1 is in a totally different scenario than it was two years ago, when certain venues offered low-cost or even no-cost solutions to keep the number of races up.

A new race would have had to make financial sense for both the teams and F1 itself, given global inflation and substantial increases in freight costs.

The confirmation will be welcomed by the teams, who are facing the difficulty of staying under budget while constructing fresh new vehicles in the midst of an already tight timetable.

The First Online Antique Car Museum In Pakistan Has Opened

The First Online Antique Car Museum In Pakistan Has Opened

May 19, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

At the unveiling of Pakistan’s first online Antique Cars Museum at the Quaid-i-Azam House Museum here on Saturday, all of the country’s top antique automobile collectors were there, along with their cherished treasures.

Karim Chhapra was there with his resurrected 1924 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, in which the Quaid-i-Azam had also travelled while it was owned by the Nawab of Bahawalpur.

He told Dawn that there has always been a demand for an online museum dedicated to the country’s antique and classic cars. “We, the collectors of these automobiles, were even promised land for a vintage car museum in Karachi, which never materialized.” So, because we don’t have the property, we’ll have to make do with an internet museum,” he explained.

Another antique automobile collector, Liaquat Malik, who was there with his 1961 ivory white Mercedes 190 SL and his brilliant yellow 1951 MG TD, remarked that because it was the age of social media, such a museum was necessary. “We will show the world our automotive legacy,” he stated.

Mansoor-ul-Islam, who is famed for hand-building historic vehicles, arrived in his ivory 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith. He also believed that such a museum would be a fantastic idea.

The idea for the online museum occurred to Shoaib Qureshi during the Covid-19 lockdowns two and a half years ago, he claimed. “We frequently attend vintage car exhibitions to promote our interest and our magnificent automobiles with the general public, but we needed a single platform for this purpose where we could display the majority of our vehicles.” This is the first online museum for vintage automobiles in Pakistan, where we can display the greatest of these vehicles not only in Pakistan but throughout the world,” he added.

“Look about you,” he added, pointing to the Porsches, Jaguars, Rolls Royce’s, Mercedes, and other luxury cars parked in the Quaid-i-Azam House Museum’s u-shaped parking lot.

“There are so many treasures here. Starting with 80 vehicles, antiquecars.com.pk will feature 100 vehicles at a time in order to retain quality above quantity. The oldest automobile on display is a 100-year-old 1922 Amilcar C4 from Islamabad, while the newest is a 35-year-old 1987 BMW two-door coupe from Karachi.

We also have Miss Fatima Jinnah’s two cars, her 1955 Series 62 Convertible Cadillac and her 1965 Mercedes Benz 200, in a virtual museum,” he said, gesturing to the two cars parked in their glass garage right there after restoration by Mohsin Ikram, president of the Vintage and Classic Car Club of Pakistan.

A 1930 Cadillac V16, 1926 Renault, 1930 Packard, 1935 Chevrolet Master, 1949 Lincoln Continental V12, 1954 Austin Healey, 1958 Corvette, 1963 Porsche 356, 1966 Aston Martin DB6 and a 1966 Amphicar are among the other worldwide rare, iconic, and costly antique vehicles in the collection.

They will have branded products in the shape of T-Shirts, hats, and other items in addition to displaying the antique automobiles and telling their histories on the museum website.

The Engineering Development Board (EDB) called a meeting last week with the CEOs of major local automakers, including Hyundai Nishat, to review recent pricing rises.

Before the meeting, EDB instructed the firms to present their cost structures and justifications for price increases. Only a couple of the eleven automakers volunteered their information, and the Ministry of Industries and Production (MoIP) objected strongly. The following are the new pricing, which are effective immediately:

The rate of price increases is far faster than the rate of increase in the US Dollar (USD) versus the Pakistani Rupee, according to the report (PKR). Automakers responded by claiming that increases in other operating costs have also led to price increases.

They pointed out that a freight container that used to cost $3,000 now costs $6,000, as well as rising raw material costs.

Finally, MoIP instructed the remaining firms to submit their cost structures within two days. It said that a follow-up meeting will be held soon in this respect.

Tesla’s India Entrance Strategy Would Be Put On Hold

Tesla’s India Entrance Strategy Would Be Put On Hold

May 16, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

According to three people familiar with the issue, Tesla has put plans to sell electric cars in India on hold, abandoned a search for showroom space, and moved members of its domestic staff after failing to negotiate reduced import taxes.

Tesla planned to gauge demand by offering lower taxes on electric cars (EVs) imported from production hubs in the United States and China, which resulted in a year of deadlock negotiations with government officials.

The Indian government, on the other hand, is urging Tesla to commit to local manufacturing before lowering import levies, which can be as high as 100%.

According to people familiar with Tesla’s plan, the business set a deadline of February 1 to see if their lobbying paid off, the day India announces its budget and reveals tax revisions.

According to the persons who asked anonymity because the conversations were private, Tesla put its plans to import cars into India on hold when Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government refused to compromise.

According to two sources, Tesla had been exploring for real estate options in New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru for months, but that plan has also been put on hold.

Tesla did not reply to an email request for comment. The Indian government did not respond to a request for comment right away. Tesla’s modest team in India has been handed additional responsibilities for other markets.

According to his LinkedIn page, Manuj Khurana, the company’s India policy head, has been working in a new “product” function in San Francisco since March.

In January, Tesla CEO Elon Musk claimed the business was still “working through a lot of challenges with the government” in terms of sales in India. Increased demand for Tesla automobiles in other countries, as well as a dispute over import levies, prompted the adjustment in strategy. Modi has attempted to woo businesses with a “Make in India” campaign, but his transport minister, Nitin Gadkari, claimed in April that Tesla importing vehicles from China would be a “bad suggestion.”

New Delhi, on the other hand, won a triumph in January when Mercedes-Benz announced that it will begin manufacturing one of its electric cars in India.

Tesla had intended to gain a competitive advantage in India’s small but growing electric car industry, which is now dominated by Tata Motors.

Tesla’s starting price of $40,000 (about Rs. 31 lakh) would put it in the premium segment of the Indian market, where sales account just a small proportion of the country’s almost 3 million annual automobile sales.

Lamborghini Confirms Electric Urus Will Debut Soon

Lamborghini Confirms Electric Urus Will Debut Soon

May 14, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

The Lamborghini Urus is presently one of the most powerful and costly SUVs on the market. This appears to be insufficient for some clients, since the Italian business is working on a more extreme version, which will be released later this year. We’re afraid we’ll have to disappoint you if you were expecting for a completely electric version. It will most likely happen, but not with this generation of Urus.

Drive recently got the opportunity to get down with Lamborghini design chief Mitja Borkert and discuss a variety of issues. A inquiry concerning a possible zero-emissions edition of the super-SUV was one of them, and Borkert originally affirmed the EV but then backed down a bit.



“Sooner or later, the Urus will become electric… to be honest, the world’s legislation, as well as societal acceptability – the trend is definitely headed in this direction,” the designer told the Australian outlet. “I’m not suggesting the Urus replacement will go electric right now, but electrification makes more sense for these sorts of automobiles.”

Borkert’s statements are tough to interpret, but we may deduce that the executives in Sant’Agata Bolognese are at least contemplating an electric Urus. It appears that it will not be ready with this model generation. Given that its successor won’t come until 2028, we’ll have to wait until the end of this decade to witness the Urus EV.

Borkert affirmed that, as far as the remainder of Lamborghini’s portfolio is concerned, the business will supply combustion power for as long as it is legally possible. However, the transition to electric powertrains is unavoidable. “People are still taught that V10 is emotional, but I’m not sure if young children will be satisfied with this in forty years. I, too, am a fan of the internal combustion engine, but I have no reservations about making the switch to electric.”

The first device has been shipped to an Oceania market. It made the news during a ceremony held earlier today at its Karachi assembly factory. The CEO and executives of the firm were present at the shipping-off event, which marked Pakistan’s first automobile export.

Danial Malik, MCML’s CEO, commented at the time:

We are delighted and proud to lead Pakistan into a new chapter in the auto industry and make its mark on a global level. The Changan Oshan X7 is the first of many more vehicles to be exported under our vision to stay Future Forward, Forever, and the Auto Industry Development and Export Policy (AIDEP 2021-26).

In March 2022, MCML released Oshan X7 in Pakistan. It boasts Changan’s newest 1.5-liter turbocharged bluewhale Euro-6 petrol engine, which delivers 300 Newton metres of torque and 185 horsepower to the front wheels via a 7-speed DCT automated transmission.

It’s one of Pakistan’s few passenger cars with modern technologies including adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and auto braking.

Changan recently celebrated the delivery of 150 Oshan X7 vehicles throughout Pakistan. The midsize SUV now starts at Rs. 6,050,000 and goes up to Rs. 6,350,000, after a recent price increase. Even at its present price, the Oshan X7 is the most affordable and well-equipped SUV in its class.

However, in a recent encouraging development, MCML has reopened Alsvin bookings across Pakistan. According to a credible source, the corporation will only accept reservations for a restricted number of automobiles.

The corporation has given each dealership a “extremely minimal” monthly delivery target, according to the source. He noted that the bulk of units in that quota had already been booked a month previously, implying that each new dealership will only accept a few new bookings before suspending them the next day.

Within 1.5 years of its start, MCML celebrated the delivery of the 10,000th Alsvin unit. To commemorate the event, the manufacturer is offering a 5-year/150,000-kilometer (whichever comes first) extended warranty on Alsvin purchases.

Despite recent price increases, MCML continues to enjoy robust demand for Alsvin as a result of its superior value offer compared to its competitors.

Porsche Is Investing Heavily On Electric Vehicle Batteries

Porsche Is Investing Heavily On Electric Vehicle Batteries

May 5, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Porsche intends to expand its electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing with more efficient batteries. Group 14 Technologies, a US-based firm known for its revolutionary contributions to lithium-silicon battery technology, has received $100 million in a series C fundraising round from the German automotive giant. Group 14 is actively working on worldwide plans to manufacture anode materials for lithium-ion batteries.

The business plans to use the funding to develop high-quality, commercially accessible battery cells. These cells are thought to have uses in small-scale manufacturing, motorsports, and high-performance cars.

The anodes, according to Group 14, can store 50% more energy than traditional electric car batteries. A joint venture is anticipated to begin mass manufacturing in 2024. Porsche isn’t the only company that has invested in Group 14, with a total of $400 million invested in the battery producer.

For a long time, the electric vehicle industry has relied primarily on Li-ion batteries. Despite having a well-established supply-and-demand relationship, Li-ion is under danger from more efficient alternatives. Carmakers have been digging for new ideas in a quest to reduce production costs and make electric vehicles more accessible and lucrative.

For firms like Porsche, who want a piece of the newly formed market, luxury EV racing has been a ferocious battleground.

Porsche will be able to tap into the untapped potential of new technology thanks to the $100 million investment. Porsche has previously released the Taycan, a completely electric vehicle that has become one of the most popular premium electric vehicles on the market.
