    Ssangyong is bankrupt and still looking a for a buyer last I read.[/quote

    Looks like another bidder has come forward.

    The apparently Never Ending Story of Ssangyong’s bankruptcy has taken a new turn with South Korean media reports today saying chemicals-to-financial conglomerate KG Group has joined the bidding war with a KRW1.5 trillion (US$1.2 billion) offer.

    Industry insiders told the Korea Herald KG Group recently submitted its letter of intent to acquire SsangYong Motor to the lead manager of the deal, EY Hanyoung.

    The report said KG Group was founded in 2003 based on the country’s first fertilizer company Gyeonggi Chemical which was set up in 1985, and now acted as a holding company for the group. Over decades, it had carried out at least 15 mergers and acquisitions including steelmaker Dongbu Steel.

    KG Group reportedly is forming a consortium to join the bid with private equity Cactus PE which helped it acquire Dongbu Steel in 2019.

    According to the Korea Herald, market insiders see KG Group as the most feasible candidate to take over SsangYong, considering its stable cash flow, funding capability as well as know-how in managing a diverse business portfolio.

    EN Plus, a local battery materials manufacturer which also builds trucks and devices for firefighting as well as special purpose vehicles, also announced its bid for SsangYong earlier this week.

    Market sources told the Korea Herald Ssangbangwool had sold its shares in listed affiliates after seeing stock market gains following the firm’s bid announcement.

    Ssangbangwool said it had secured KRW450 billion in cash that would be used for a “stable financing route” to acquire SsangYong.

    Only MiNIs on the scheme at present are 2 electric ones. Only come in auto; not sure being electric if they have gear boxes though. I have a MINI on order, I got in early this year before they removed them. Got to check if it is still on for next month, but it is auto so should be OK.

    Current vehicle: 2018 SEAT LEON ST 1.8 TSI FR Technology DSG
    On order: MINI 5-Door Hatch 2.0 Cooper S Classic Steptronic

    VW boss Herbert Diess confirmed an order backlog in western Europe of 300,000 electric cars, reports the Financial Times. He added that EVs in both the US and Europe “are basically sold out” for the rest of 2022.

    I can see it coming to a point where MB is no longer sustainable in its current form, if the downward spiral continues for much longer.

    I suspect the large body of very well paid staff at Motability are rather under-employed at the moment. What with fewer new cars and handbacks to deal with and the nodding through of lease extensions…

    Well This the first day that I have been able to get out and drive during the last 7 weeks. due to torn hamstring. So I called into my local kia dealer to enquire about placing an order for the new sportage GT-Line S HEV Only to be told that its no long on the motability list.

    So now only available in Petrol. WTF

    Mobility list still shows as available. Any idea what is going on here?

    The HEVs got removed a while back already, didn’t they? Few weeks now.

    They’re also not in the Motability list, are you mistaking the “48V” mild hybrid with the HEV?

    edit: just realised the picture. That Sportage isn’t the HEV, it’s the 48V mild hybrid, not the full hybrid.

    Current: SEAT Ateca Xcellence Lux 1.5 TSI DSG MY19
    On Order: VW Golf GTE PHEV DSG MY22
