Complete Guide: How to Buy a Used Car

  Complete Guide: How to Buy a Used Car ​The single easiest way to save money when buying a car is to purchase a used model instead of a new vehicle. When you buy a new car, the second you leave the dealer's lot, it starts to rapidly depreciate, losing a significant amount of its value in the first few years of ownership. When you buy a used car, the original owner absorbs the pain of its steep depreciation during its early years. You pay far less than you would have if you had purchased the car new. There may be more maintenance required on a used car that's out of warranty, and its financing may be a bit more expensive.

Cellcentric is to test fuel cell trucks from 2023. The partners have also terminated series production.

As early as November , the two heavyweights had agreed to take this step. Cellcentric emerged from the Daimler Group, in which it bundled all fuel cell activities - at that time under the name "Daimler Truck Fuel Cell". Now the Volvo Group and Daimler Truck AG each hold 50 percent of the company, which is to develop and manufacture fuel cells for both in the future. The participation is said to have cost Volvo 600 million euros. Daimler announced the . Cellcentric's technologies are to be tested in trucks from 2023. From the middle of the decade, the partners envision series production of hydrogen trucks.

In the recently decided separation of the car and truck divisions from Daimler, the fuel cell department was transferred to the truck department. The Volvo Group completed its separation in 1999. At that time, the Swedish flagship company sold the car division to Ford, and since 2010 Volvo Cars has belonged to the Chinese vehicle group Geely. While Daimler is the largest truck manufacturer in the world, Volvo is in fourth place. The two Chinese manufacturers FAW and Dongfeng Trucks have been ranked between the two for a few years now. Volvo has a 45 percent stake in the latter.

Fuel cells together, everything else against each other.

The two truck companies attach great importance to merging only the hydrogen activities. In all other areas, including the corresponding drives, they remain competitors. In addition to the series production of hydrogen trucks, Daimler is working on concepts for stationary power generation with hydrogen. The idea: fuel cells could be developed and marketed as a CO2-neutral emergency power alternative. There is a corresponding letter of intent with Rolls Royce to work together on this solution.
