The synergies between our business modules are evident and this association with Mahindra will further build on the trust of our stakeholders. With this Porter has now done a cumulative fund raise of more than USD 20 million”.

Geely Founder Li Shufu is a new shareholder of Daimler AG

The share purchase makes Li Shufu currently the single largest shareholder of Daimler AG

(Hangzhou / Stuttgart) Geely Group, a company owned by Li Shufu and managed by Zheijang Geely Holding Group, has acquired a 9.7 percent stake of Daimler AG, Stuttgart through open market purchases of shares. The company made regulatory disclosures after the close of markets yesterday.

“Daimler is an outstanding company with a first-class management. It will be an honor to support this unique team under the leadership of Dieter Zetsche in the future,” said Li Shufu, chairman and owner of Zheijang Geely Holding Group. “I am particularly pleased to accompany Daimler on its way to becoming the world’s leading electro-mobility provider.”

The share purchase makes Li Shufu currently the single largest shareholder of Daimler AG and points to a long-term commitment. For the time being neither Geely Group nor any other company in the Zheijang Geely Holding Group intend to acquire additional shares. Li Shufu said he will fully abide by the company charter and governance structure of Daimler AG and respect its values and culture.

With revenue exceeding RMB 270 billion (USD 42.7 billion) in 2017, the Zheijang Geely Holding Group is China’s largest privately owned automotive manufacturing company and one of the world’s leading providers of electro-mobility. Major assets of the group include leading Chinese automaker Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd., Hangzhou (46 percent), Volvo Cars, Gothenburg, Sweden (100 percent), Volvo Trucks, Gothenburg, Sweden (8.2 percent), Lotus Motor Cars, Norfolk, UK (51 percent), Proton Cars, Malaysia (49.9 percent), London Taxi, Coventry, UK (100 percent) and China’s largest car-sharing provider, Cao Cao (100 percent), operating a fleet of around 16.000 electric vehicles worldwide.

No current car industry player will be able to win this battle against the invaders from outside independently. In order to succeed and seize the technology highland, one has to have friends, partners, and alliances and adapt a new way of thinking in terms of sharing and united strength. And we have act now. My investment in Daimler reflects this strategic vision.”

Electric Explorer African Challenge – the first EV expedition across Africa

Polish traveler Arkady Paweł Fiedler is piloting a Nissan LEAF across Africa in challenging conditions

Electric Explorer African Challenge - Photo 01

ROSSLYN, South Africa – The Electric Explorer African Challenge 2018, the first-ever electric vehicle expedition across Africa, has begun. Behind the wheel of a previous-generation Nissan LEAF is famous Polish traveler Arkady Paweł Fiedler, accompanied by photographer Albert Wójtowicz. The LEAF is not modified in any way – it is exactly the same as the car that was recently available in showrooms. (The new Nissan LEAF is on sale now across the world.)

“Traveling across Africa is probably the hardest test for any vehicle, not only an EV,” said Fiedler. “Poor roads, limited charging infrastructure and dramatically diverse weather conditions – from equatorial storms to the scorching heat of the Sahara – these are just a few challenges that we’ll have to face during the expedition. We’re optimistic. As part of the tests, I’ve already traveled over 4,000 kilometers in Poland in a Nissan LEAF, and I’m positively surprised by the driving range offered.”

The expedition started in Cape Town last week and will lead to Europe, along Western Africa, via South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo, Gabon, Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Gambia, Mauritania and Morocco, and finally across western Europe to Poland.

“The Nissan LEAF is the most popular electric vehicle in the world,” said Dorota Pajączkowska, Nissan PR manager Poland. “The first generation of the model was launched on the market as early as eight years ago, and Nissan EV drivers have already done more than three billion zero-emission kilometers in total. The design tested by hundreds of thousands of drivers can be trusted without hesitation, which I believe will be best proven by the Electric Explorer African Challenge 2018.”

Apart from being the first ever electric vehicle journey across the African continent, the expedition also aims to build awareness of electric mobility and new, cleaner technologies among the public in Africa, Poland and the world at large. It’s also important to show that the way of perceiving the world and human choices – such as the means of transport – have a great impact on our environment.

“Care of the environment, home, family starts with us – with our subjective decisions,” said Fiedler. “The journey is also to prove that often something apparently impossible to do can be achieved given appropriate attitude and determination. Owing to the huge challenge of looking for appropriate electric sockets to fill the battery with electricity, which is increasingly less of a problem in Europe year on year, we’ll have to rely on help from people we meet along the way. Without support from Africans, the expedition may fail.”

In about week's time myself and @czosnek78 will be leaving Cape Town and drive the African LEAF north to find out whether it will be possible to cross Africa overland with an electric car. I expect Electric Explorer expedition will encounter unpredictable moments, with regards to recharging points en route which brings me to another point: if you may know of anyone who is willing to share the use of their (power) socket or recommend any reliable places with electricity please let me know in a private message (obviously I will pay for the electricity). The plan is to drive through South Africa, Namibia, Angola, DRC, Congo, Gabon, Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Mauretania, Morocco and possibly Ghana and Gambia as well. Please keep your fingers crossed for the African LEAF. ______________________________ #plugmein #pluggedin #africa #overland #roadtrip #nissanleaf #ev #electriccar #nissan #plugin #adventure #electricity #tourtheplanet #lifeofadventure #instatravel #ig_africa #travelstoke #neverstopexploring #lifeontheroad #overlanding #africanleaf #electricexplorer #evroadtrip #travelgram #wanderout #explorer #podróże #afryka #arkadyfiedler
