    Sorry “Not me real name I hope”  I added this to my signature a couple of years ago “Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.” please be assured that all the lengthy articles i post are by someone else. I add these articles to inform and entertain all members and i do not intend passing them off as my own. I post so many pieces that adding the details of where they are from and who wrote them takes up more time than i am willing to give. Where i can though i will, if you look at my “whats motabilities position on Chinese made cars” almost all of the posts are screenshots of the entire article.

    So once again all of the lengthy articles i post are not mine they are just cut and pasted from a number of online magazines freely available on the web.

    The fleet sector is moving from a manufacturer-enforced push market focused on major discounts and low prices to a demand-led pull market as supply shortages enable carmakers to press the reset button on the sales strategies.

    Fleet operators are already reporting that discounts are drying up as quickly as lead times are extending, while in some case P11D prices are rising. However, strong residual values are helping to even out the leasing costs.

    Paul Hyne, chief commercial officer at Arval UK, believes this will be the landscape for the next couple of years while new vehicles are in short supply.

    “We won’t see as many short-term price offers so we can be more consistent with our offers in the market,” he said. “This will also help with the transition to electric.”

    Push markets tend to become very consumer orientated, driving personal contract hire business via brokers and often unsettling residuals, although the low price does result in competitive offers.

    “Without the price pressure that drives the monthly headline rate, we are able to be more pragmatic and build a proper full service leasing proposition,” Hyne said.

    Corporate leasing rates are also becoming more competitive as companies enter into lower mileage contracts due to the reduction in business and personal mileage during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    “On average, at least 50% of the orders we are seeing today have reduced contracted mileage,” Hyne said. “It was 36 months, 60,000 miles; now it’s 36 months, 30,000-45,000 miles. It’s also been facilitated by electric vehicles and salary sacrifice – we’re getting closer to PCH mileage then BCH.”

    Three years remains the standard length of contract at Arval; however, Hyne predicts cycle changes for electric vans.

    “Fewer moving parts means lower maintenance costs and better reliability so we expect to see longer contracts – five, seven, nine, even 12 years won’t be unheard of in the future,” he said. “We have to have a flexible risk policy to cater for these changing needs.”

    “Salary Sacrifice Schemes” are popping up all over the place with many companies jumping on the band wagon and great tax breaks from the Government.

    The demand for EVs is going through the roof so the manufacturers do not need Motability Customers.

    We are at the end of the queue and likely to stay that way for a while yet.

    Tesla boss Elon Musk has been forced to apologise after hundreds of motorists were locked out of their electric cars when the firm’s smartphone app crashed over the weekend.

    The app suffered a server outage on Friday leaving a number of drivers unable to get in or out of their cars.

    Users who tried to access the app were instead greeted by a ‘500 server error’ message.

    Musk, who recently sold three per cent of his Tesla shares only to buy £2.1m of them back again, has now said sorry for the fault.

    Writing on Twitter, the multi billionaire entrepreneur pledged to make sure a repeat incident never occurred.

    He said: ‘Looks like we may have accidentally increased verbosity of network traffic.

    ‘Apologies, we will take measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.’

    Around 500 users reported facing the error message at about 9.40pm on Friday evening.

    There then a further 60 reports over the next five hours, according to the outage tracking site DownDetector

    The app can be used by Tesla owners to unlock and start their vehicles – although there are a number of secondary measures to start vehicles in the case of faults.

    EV experts say most would have been able to continue using their cars, although many would have been left stranded.

    Stuart Masson, editor of The Car Expert website, told the BBC: ‘There will be a secondary mechanism to get in or out of the car beyond the app, the difficulty will come for drivers if they are not carrying it.
    ‘Technology makes things convenient, but relies on a server working 100 per cent of the time.

    ‘It’s the same as leaving the house without my credit cards, expecting to pay for things with my smartphone.

    ‘If we are reliant on one mechanism all the time, we can be caught out.’

    Professor David Bailey, an automotive expert from the Birmingham Business School, added: ‘To some extent, Tesla is a bit of a victim of its own success.

    ‘It encourages its customers to use the cutting edge technology it creates and sometimes that will go wrong.
    ‘Although of course you can use a key to open the car too, the natural instinct of many Tesla drivers, who are buying one of the most high tech models in the market, is to rely on the technology.’

    ajn it basically gives you an idea of where your country is with regards to meeting emmission targets. There is a lot of info on each countries green policies and if they are likely to meet thier own targets.

    Open it up and have a play around with it, the UK are one of the better countries believe it or not.

    Genesis Electrified GV70 makes debut at Guangzhou motor show

    SUV gets a maximum output of 482bhp from two electric motors and has more than 310 miles of range

    Genesis has revealed an electric variant of the GV70 SUV, with a maximum output of 482bhp and a range of more than 310 miles.

    The Electrified GV70 was presented at the Guangzhou motor show, with Genesis claiming that it will set “a new standard for luxury electric SUVs”.

    The SUV will be available with four-wheel drive only, with a motor producing 214bhp and 258lb ft of torque on each axle. Maximum power output is pegged at 482bhp and 516lb ft, resulting in a 0-62mph time of 4.5sec when the car is in Boost mode.

    Genesis claims a competitive range of more than 500km (310 miles) and an estimated real-world figure of 248 miles according to Korean EV certification standards.

    The Electrified GV70 can be charged from 10-80% in just 18 minutes when using a 350kW rapid charger.

    It will be the first Genesis model to be fitted with a new E-Terrain mode for improved driving in more challenging environments. Several other changes have come to improve the driving experience, too, including a system that reduces road noise and electronic control suspension that adapts based on data collected by a front-mounted camera.

    One-pedal driving is also possible, thanks to smart regenerative braking.

    The show car’s Glacier White interior features a host of eco-friendly materials.

    “Our global vision to create a sustainable future through electrification is a natural extension of our original commitment that dates back to the launch of Genesis in 2015: the commitment to creating a positive impact in our customers’ lives,” said Genesis global head Jay Chang.

    “I’m pleased to reveal another new electric model in China that celebrates our audacious step toward a sustainable future.”

    The Electrified GV70 is one of five cars the Hyundai-owned luxury brand is presenting in Guangzhou, alongside the G70 saloon, G70 estate, G80 saloon and GV80 SUV.

    It’s expected to come to Europe, although no pricing details have been announced yet.
