 Grasser team buries DTM plans with Lamborghini: © ADAC The Styrian Grasser team will not compete in the DTM in 2021 Last October the Austrian Grasser team caused a sensation when they showed interest in entering the DTM with the Lamborghini Huracan. But now team boss Gottfried Grasser reveals that the project has failed. "We would have liked to have done it, but we can't get by with the financing," he clarified in an interview with 'Motorsport-Total.com'. "If the manufacturer doesn't do anything great, you can forget that.

Polestar Announces Project 0 to Build a Carbon-Neutral Car by 2030 . Rather than offset emissions by only planting trees, the Volvo affiliate claims it will change the way its cars are made, and targets a fully carbon-neutral company by 2040. The announcement was made alongside the release of Polestar's first sustainability report, which states that the company itself, a Volvo affiliate, plans to be entirely carbon neutral by 2040. It is unclear if Polestar will make one of its current vehicles or one of those it has planned, carbon neutral by 2030 , or have a new vehicle fulfill that goal.

Then, in 2025, Volvo wants half of its sales to be fully-electric cars and by 2030 , Volvo wants to go EV-only. Gallery: Volvo XC40 Recharge. "I would be surprised if we wouldn't deliver only electric cars from 2030 ," the company’s CEO Hakan Samuelsson recently told the Financial Times Future, quoted by Automotive News. He believes firm deadlines for the end of gasoline and diesel engine sales will accelerate people’s willingness to move to an EV, not the cash incentives for green vehicles.

Volvo head of executive Hakan Samuelsson is the man who is to prepare the traditional car maker on the future of e-mobility. The 70-year-old Swede wants to sell only E-Cars with the Group from 2030. From the alternative fuel of hydrogen, he keeps little.

For the Volvo boss, the future is electrically. "Burner are the technology of yesterday," he says in conversation with the "Handelsblatt" . At the company Volvo, whose CEO he has been since 2012, he sees a decisive advantage over the competition. Compared to Volkswagen and Co., the carmaker from Sweden is compact set up. This allows Volvo to get involved more quickly on new trends and make the use of electromobility more efficiently.

Volvo is one of the companies in the automotive industry that’s embracing electrification at a faster pace. The Swedish brand’s final model to feature a combustion engine is likely the next-generation XC90 and by 2030 , Volvo ’s boss wants the marque to be delivering zero-emission cars only. Then, in 2025, Volvo wants half of its sales to be fully-electric cars and by 2030 , Volvo wants to go EV-only. "I would be surprised if we wouldn't deliver only electric cars from 2030 ," the company’s CEO Hakan Samuelsson recently told the Financial Times Future, quoted by Automotive News.

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – Volvo ’s devoted electrical car brand Polestar has introduced its intention to create the world’s first “truly climate neutral” car by the year 2030 . Now is a historic and exciting time for car makers, an opportunity to seize the moment, do better and dare to build the dream of climate-neutral, circular and beautiful cars ,” Klarén added. Climate motion is already being included all through the Polestar business, and local weather targets are built -in within the Polestar worker bonus system, the company claims.

to 2025 Plant the Volvo boss that half of the cars sold are fully electrical. From 2030, the manager wants to offer Volvo only E-cars - and that is the mostly digital on the Internet. Samuelsson hopes "significantly reduced" distribution costs.

The number of employees will not change noticeably by switching to the E-car, promises Samuelsson. However, software programs will take a significantly higher priority in the Swedish manufacturer in the future. "Electrical drives and central computers in the cars and online sales for sale are the three primary corner pillars for us," said the Swede in conversation with the "Handelsblatt".

Volvo boss sees no future

with Hydrogen's own charging stations Volvo does not plan for the time being. There is a possible entry into battery production. With the battery cell manufacturers Catl and LG Chem, the Swedish car maker negotiated supplies that the company should equip the company with sufficient batteries over the next ten years. If necessary, Volvo will also want to engage in the future itself and become more independent. Samuelsson is open in the "Handelsblatt" and would also like to invest in production with partners: "This will go far beyond a classic delivery relationship."

After losing his leg in Afghanistan, Yury Sukhorukov has struggled to move around. This has been exacerbated by the poor roads in his small village. In particular, the difficulty of getting to the nearby river inspired him to make his own vehicle, which he spent four and a half months building . Sukhorukov is from Guyevo, a settlement within walking distance of the country’s border with Ukraine. His new invention easily drives through mud and swamps, and can reach up to 40 kilometers per hour. “I had to think of something to make it easier to get to the river,” Sukhorukov, an avid fisherman, explained.

Volvo boss Håkan Samuelsson has called on the car industry to commit fully to switching to electric vehicles, believing that will speed up both customer demand and infrastructure development. Once you have electric cars in the showroom, a lot of people will go for the new technology.” He said he anticipates the shift will happen as quickly as the move from traditional mobile phones to smartphones: “It’s like a telephone 15 years ago, when you said: ‘Do you want one with buttons or do you want one with a touchscreen?’”

An issue where the Volvo boss does not point to the Volvo boss opposite, is hydrogen . "I see no future at cars. Maybe the fuel cell will be of importance for commercial vehicles, while cars, hydrogen will not play a role," he argues in the "Handelsblatt". According to the power and efficiency protrusion of the battery, the hydrogen is ranked to him in a few years.

But whoever leads a company who has to think about the profit. Especially at this point, however, it hapes many traditional automakers. The production of E-cars is still a loss business. Samuelsson, however, believes that the electrically powered cars will be more profitable by 2025 than the gasoline. However, consumers still need to set themselves: "Electric cars will tend to cost more than a classic combustion in the future", according to the manager.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 First Drive: Thunder Macher! .
Rest in thunder, 2016 to 2020 Shelby GT350. Your ethereal 5.2-liter Voodoo V-8 was too good for this low-redline world; not even the recently introduced, supercar-baiting GT500’s 7,500-rpm cutoff can match your 8,250-rpm supernova scream. Your loss is so profoundly felt we’ve been casting about for some car—any car—to fill the hole in our heart. But that car won't be the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Not because it's not great, but because it's not supposed to be.
