New-vehicle Sales in Canada, First Quarter of 2018

  New-vehicle Sales in Canada, First Quarter of 2018 Spring has arrived, and we can finally analyse the performance of carmakers on the Canadian sales charts during the first quarter of 2018. Among the winners, or those who registered the biggest gains compared to the first quarter of 2017, we find Genesis who saw its sales increase by 102%. However, the brand is still new and rolled out only 123 units since the beginning of 2018, so the sample is really small. Volvo did well with a 43% rise, while sales of its XC60 compact SUV almost tripled. Volkswagen recorded a 35% increase, thanks to the addition of the Atlas and a redesigned Tiguan in its product lineup.

Volvo today introduced its FL Electric transport truck, the brand's first battery-powered commercial truck and one that the Swedish manufacturer says puts it in the lead "in solutions for electrified goods transport in cities."

In its press release, Volvo says it will begin sales and series production of the FL Electric next year, following a trial period underway that has put a handful of the trucks to work in the company's hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Should Volvo meet its 2019 on-sale target date, it would likely beat Mercedes-Benz to the punch: that German manufacturer is about to begin trials of its electric transports with a goal of selling the first production models "by 2021."

Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round

  Buick's New Electric Concept Is Very Round Buick has an image problem in the U.S., where it’s seen as a brand for The Olds, and where it’s planning to take its own name off of its cars in 2019. But in China, where Buick sold 1.2 million vehicles last year, it’s a completely different story. Electric is also big there, which brings us to the big Buick news of the day: an electric concept for China called the Enspire. The Enspire will debut later this month in Beijing, and reflects Buick’s continued push into China and what is turning out to be the future of the brand.

Whether Volvo is first depends on whether Tesla can meet a seemingly ambitious target of moving its electric transport rig into production next year. Tesla's Elon Musk is promising a truck that can go 800 km at highway speeds and rip to nearly 100 km/h in 20 seconds with a trailer loaded with more than 36,000 kg of cargo.

The FL Electric can be equipped with anywhere from two to six lithium-ion batteries good for as much as 300 kWh of juice, which Volvo says provides up to 300 km of driving range. Fully specified with a half-dozen battery packs and 300 kWh of capacity, charging time is one to two hours on a DC fast-charger, or as little as 10 hours when plugged into an AC power source.

Electricity is delivered to the wheels by an electric motor good for 248 hp and 313 lb-ft of torque, which works with a two-speed transmission.

The Volvo XC90 Hasn't Killed Anyone In Britain In 14 Years .
The current generation of the XC90 might be the safest car of all time, or at least the safest model that doesn’t come with a roll cage, five-point harness, and racing seats.
