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.”

Those who buy electric vehicles get rid of petrol or diesel as well as mobile oil and filter replacement. Expenses on petrol and diesel can be said to be cost saving, but their real advantage is that their silencer does not emit any kind of smoke but it does not have silencer at all.

People can charge at home at night easily go to work tomorrow and it will be pollution free and it will be quite fast because electric cars deliver power at any rpm and they will be less maintenance then any petrol or diesel cars.

Amir Hussain, CEO of Gogo Motors, a subsidiary of Tesla Motors, has revealed that his company has completed the installation of electric chargers and now Pakistanis can travel on any electric car from Peshawar to Rahim Yar Khan. ۔

Charging stations have been installed in Islamabad, Peshawar, Bhairah, Pindi Bhattian, Abdul Hakim and Multan and a charger will be installed in Faisalabad in the same month.

MERCEDES-BENZ PRESENTS THE EQXX ELECTRIC CONCEPT CAR, WHICH IS SPORTY AND ULTRA-LONG-RANGE.

MERCEDES-BENZ PRESENTS THE EQXX ELECTRIC CONCEPT CAR, WHICH IS SPORTY AND ULTRA-LONG-RANGE.

January 5, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / News

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the Vision EQXX, a solar-powered concept car capable of travelling over 1,000 kilometres (648 miles) on a single charge.

According to the German carmaker, increased aerodynamics and battery efficiency allow for a range of 1,000 kilometer’s.

On a single charge, the Vision EQXX can go from New York City to Cincinnati, Berlin to Paris, or Beijing to Nanjing. In comparison to other long-range EVs on the road today, such as the Lucid Air (520 miles) and Tesla Model S Long Range Plus, it’s outstanding (402 miles). Unlike other cars, however, the Vision EQXX is only a concept with no intentions for mass manufacture. (For the time being.)


GALLERY:


Mercedes-Benz eventually presented the automobile (virtually) at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, after weeks of teasing. (Due to an increase in COVID-19 instances, Mercedes, like most of the large firms, abandoned its intentions to attend CES in person.)

The Vision EQXX will most likely serve as the foundation for a production car that will compete with other premium electric vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron GT, and Tesla Roadster, thanks to its sporting goals and sleek, futuristic style.

The Vision EQXX, on the other hand, is said to be more based in reality. The business states that their range estimates were based on a simulation of real-world traffic circumstances, implying that it will burn energy at a rate of 10kWh every 100 kilometers, or more than 6 miles per kWh. In terms of fossil-fuel use, this equates to about 235 miles per gallon in the United States, or 1 liter of gasoline every 100 kilometers.


INTERIOR:


A range estimate is, after all, just that: a guess. Any EV range will be certified separately by the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States, as well as Europe’s Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The majority of electric vehicles on the market now have a range of 200-300 miles, with some older versions having less. The current generation of electric vehicles has a range of 250-300 kilometers.

EV range is, of course, quite subjective. Even the EPA’s grading system is only intended to provide a snapshot of the agency’s testing procedure under specified conditions. It usually ignores things like hard hill climbing and the impacts of cold weather, which may deplete a vehicle’s battery far more quickly than driving on level roads or in warmer weather.

The 117 solar cells put in the vehicle’s roof will assist the Vision EQXX. The solar roof, which was developed in partnership with Europe’s leading solar energy research center, is designed to counteract the high-voltage system’s energy drain while simultaneously extending its range. According to Mercedes, the solar cells may add up to 25 kilometers of range to long-distance trips in a single day under perfect conditions.

According to the study, auto-industry imports totaled $2.624 billion in the first eleven months of FY 2020-21, compared to $1.431 billion in the first eleven months of FY 2019-20.

The value of CKD/SKD car imports in this year was $2.180 billion, up 86.72 percent from the previous year. CBU imports grew by 81.29 percent, with a value of $336.941 million compared to $185.861 million previous year.

According to industry observers, the recent flood of new cars may have caused such a huge spike in the value and volume of vehicle imports. In the previous year, almost two dozen new cars were released to the Pakistani market, the majority of which are SUVs, but virtually all of them cost more than PKR. 4 million.

The government is turning its attention to encouraging the sale and purchase of smaller, more environmentally friendly automobiles in order to decrease the high import bill.

The All Pakistan Motor Dealers Association (APMDA), on the other hand, is advocating for a change of the import rules to encourage car imports. H.M. Shehzad, the Chairman of the APMDA, wrote to the Ministry of Finance (MOF) around two weeks ago to suggest modifications to the new car policy that would take effect after the presentation of the 2021-22 budget.

He went on to say that the newcomers are also raising costs, delaying car deliveries, and “fleecing the consumers in the form of Own-Money” for early deliveries of their automobiles.

Shehzad proposed that the government encourage the import of automobiles into Pakistan to promote healthy competition in the market and to raise the quality standards of current automakers.
