Is Volvo's compact SUV a winner?

26 September 2018

I can't believe it's over four years since Volvo stunned us by replacing the ancient-of-days XC90 SUV with one on a new platform, with new electrified 'twin engine' drivetrain (plus the usual petrol and diesel engines) and an interior that made IKEA look cheap and nasty and was more comparable to hand crafted products like Bentley. Only problem was - it's sooooooo big. The follow up, the XC60, again replacing an older (and still desirable) iteration, was more manageable in size but, Olaf, could you shrink it just a bit more? And so, on the different CMA platform, shared with Volvo Cars' Chinese masters Geely, came the XC40. My size of Volvo SUV.


Ford eyes transmission plant sale or closure - the week

15 June 2018

It was not, to put it mildly, the best week for autoworkers, at least this side of the pond. A sharpened American axe appeared over the automatic transmissions factory in Bordeaux, France, (see, they make more than fine wine there). Should the automaker not secure a buyer for its Ford Aquitaine Industries (FAI) site at Blanquefort in south west France, the factory will close, although no forced redundancies would be implemented before September 2019. Not good news.
