Volvo makes ethically sourced supply chains possible for electric vehicles. A detailed analysis suggests that dense areas with a large, established vehicle base are fertile ground for these new mobility services, and many cities and suburbs of Europe and North America fit this profile. New mobility services may result in a decline of private-vehicle sales, but this decline is likely to be offset by increased sales in shared vehicles that need to be replaced more often due to higher utilization and related wear and tear. The central bank of Indonesia decided to revise the down payment requirements for the purchase of a car in an attempt to boost credit growth . Per 18 June 2015, those Indonesian consumers who use a loan from a financial institution to purchase a passenger car need to pay a minimum down payment of 25 percent .

As we move into a new era of transportation, Arm is powering innovation – engineering the future of software-defined, intelligent vehicles based on our world-class architecture. With new levels of connectivity, energy efficiency, and autonomy, we’re building the future of mobility together. Automation, electrification and in-vehicle user experience are driving requirements for higher computing power across the automotive industry. This computing power must respect the constraints of power consumption, heat dissipation, and packaging space, and allow fast and flexible development while putting functional safety first. Tomorrow’s automotive interior will be fundamentally different in shape and functionality, as end customers demand greater convenience, safety, and individualization. In another game-changing development, software competence is increasingly becoming one of the most important differentiating factors for the industry, for various domain areas, including ADAS/active safety, connectivity, and infotainment.

This is a true missed opportunity in terms of export performance because about 80 percent of the world’s drivers use a sedan vehicle. The key reason why Indonesia has not developed a sedan industry is because the government’s tax system does not encourage the production and export of the sedan vehicle. The luxury goods tax on the sedan is 30 percent, while the tax on the MPV is set at 10 percent. This causes the high sedan price and in order to encourage demand for the sedan its price needs to become more competitive. Power study, emerging markets accounted for 51 percent of the global light-vehicle sales in 2010.
Automobiles and other motor vehicles have to comply with a certain number of regulations, whether local or international, in order to be accepted on the market. The standard ISO 26262, is considered one of the best practice frameworks for achieving automotive functional safety. Since it first supplied ball bearings to the Japanese market in 1916, NSK has broadened its range and contributed to all different fields of industry. In particular, the company focused on and moved into the automotive products arena at an early stage. Placing an emphasis on performance and product quality, the company’s business developed in tandem with the automobile industry. The VE-Trac SiC Direct platform achieves new levels of performance, efficiency, and reliability.
AVL experts explain how to use vSUITE™ to optimize the energy management of a battery electric SUV and achieve the ideal balance between range and performance in a virtual environment. Vehicle electrification requires complex electronic design where energy efficiency is of utmost importance. Traction inverters convert DC current from the battery into AC current required by the traction motor.
Ford Puts Focus on Electric
The automobile is a primary mode of transportation for many developed economies. The Detroit branch of Boston Consulting Group predicted that, by 2014, one-third of world demand would be in the four BRIC markets . It is also expected that this trend will continue, especially as the younger generations of people no longer want to own a car anymore, and prefer other modes of transport.
