New Electric Car Not for Sale, Please Subscribe to Drive One

Motion Digest Network

Europe continues to test the waters of shared vehicle ownership models, and the Amber One is a car designed to help eliminate the huge amount of time our own vehicles currently spend idle. The all-electric concept has a 250-mile range on a single charge, a top speed of over 93 mph, and a 0 to 60 time of a respectable 7 seconds. But you can’t buy one – to gain access, you subscribe to a service at a cost of €33 (around $37 U.S.) per week, which will let you use any available Amber One nearby.

Amber Mobility says the Amber One is also designed to be modular, so that it can be upgraded throughout its life, which should be prolonged because it doesn’t need to be scrapped entirely when new tech or improvements come along. It’s also designed as a connected car from the ground up, with tight integration across software and…

Very Interesting Concept Vehicle: Spiri v0.1

Driving to the Future

spiri_prototype_frontDanish start-up Spiri has produced a “lab on wheels” purpose-designed prototype EV for its on-demand car-sharing/car-pooling service: this ultra-light (750kg) carbonfibre urban runaround has no interior panels, no paint, and around a quarter of the components (700) of a conventional passenger car, reports TechCrunch, helping it to a claimed 200-mile range between recharges. Most impressively, Spiri is aiming for passenger journey pricing on a par with bus tickets in the selected cities it aims to launch in – and free travel for drivers who pick up passengers along their way, in a neat twist/extension to the usual on-demand offering. The system is based around ‘virtual bus stops’ and pick-up points, with ‘Spiri hubs’ for parking and recharging. Design-wise, it’s an interesting thing with closely-placed front wheels (Spiri also experimented with a three-wheel layout, it appears) for a max-capacity interior, seating four plus luggage with wide-opening doors for easy access.

The Indo-Japanese car maker has developed this small diesel engine for the passenger car market without any help from others.

From the last one year, the diesel market has poor demand in the country due to some industrious reasons and a lot of factors. Especially, the graph of the entry-level segment falls down with the different reasons. The price gap between the petrol and diesel powered cars and the Supreme Court’s unstable policy on the diesel-powered cars are the main reasons. Besides, the implementation of the Bharat Stage VI (BS VI)…

Valeo-InBlue® is compatible with Android or iOS based smartphones on any mobile network. This easy to implement solution makes the technology deployable on any market.

“In 2015, 1.4 billion smartphones were sold worldwide and the number of smartwatches is expected to reach 50 million this year, opening the door to a world of possibilities to leverage devices with smart car applications” said Marc Vrecko, President of Valeo’s Comfort and Driving Assistance Business Group. “Gemalto is a pioneer of secure connected car technology and its proven Trusted Service Hub has helped us deliver next generation services with enhanced security for drivers and car manufacturers.”

With Valeo-InBlue®, authorized users can remotely register new connected devices for use with a vehicle and receive vehicle information such as car location and fuel level, enabling easy secured car sharing and simplified rentals.

“People love their cars as much as their connected devices. The convergence of the two is transforming the automotive sector enhancing performance, safety and driver comfort, and is a stepping stone to new upcoming mobility services starting by easier car rental & sharing”said Frederic Vasnier, Executive Vice-President Embedded Software and Products, Gemalto. “Valeo-InBlue® technology defends against key fob hacking thus improving security and convenience for drivers. It establishes an entirely new marketplace that Frost & Sullivan says will be used by 26 million people by 2020.”

Suzuki Motorcycles India to seek Maruti Suzuki’s support for dealership expansion; Existing Maruti dealers were asked to take two wheeler dealerships too!

maruti-suzuki-new-logo

Suzuki Motorcycles is planning to expand its business in India, for which the company is seeking help from its sister concern – Maruti Suzuki. Under this strategy, the company aims to use Maruti’s vast network and reach to spread the two-wheeler business. It has approached many existing Maruti Suzuki dealerships to add them as sellers of its products.

Additionally, Suzuki is also working on expanding the common component supplier base between the car and two-wheeler businesses. This will help in bringing costs down, thus making Suzuki motorcycles more affordable in the country.

Despite being in the country for around a decade, Suzuki Motorcycles hasn’t managed to capture a significant share of India’s two-wheeler market. During FY 2015-16, Suzuki sold 3,13,300 two-wheelers in the country, which is a drop of 8% as compared to the previous year, while the overall industry grew by 3%. With a market share of just 1.9%, the company is trailing behind players like Hero, Honda, TVS, and Bajaj.

Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki has managed to cap around 50% of the car market. Hence, the two-wheeler arm is now trying to benefit from Maruti’s exposure and experience in the Indian market, in order to enhance its footprint in the country.

Suzuki has already invested around Rs. 3,000 crore in the Indian two-wheeler business and reported its first ever profit last year. At present, it has a production capacity of 0.7 million units per year.
