Volkswagen ID.R Sets New Electric Record On The Nürburgring

Volkswagen has achieved another milestone in electro-mobility: The ID.R, powered by two electric motors, lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 6:05.336 minutes faster than any electric vehicle before it. Romain Dumas beat the previous record set by Peter Dumbreck in 2017 by 40.564 seconds. With an average speed of 206.96 km/h, the ID.R once again underlined the impressive performance capabilities of Volkswagen’s electric drive. This 500 kW (680 PS) emission-free race car is the racing flagship of the future fully electric ID. product family from Volkswagen.

Mr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group said that “The Nordschleife of the Nürburgring is not only the world’s most demanding race track, it is also the ultimate test for production vehicles. The ID.R has mastered this challenge with great distinction and has completed the fastest emission-free lap of all time. As further proof of its impressive performance capabilities, Volkswagen’s e-mobility can now proudly call itself ‘Nürburgring-approved’. I congratulate the team from Volkswagen Motorsport and driver Romain Dumas on the third record for the ID.R”

Within just twelve months, Volkswagen Motorsport has already set three track records with the ID.R. On 24 June 2018, Romain Dumas achieved the absolute track record of 7:57.148 minutes at the renowned Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (USA). Just three weeks later, he achieved a new best time for electric cars of 43.86 seconds at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in southern England. The new record on the legendary Nordschleife has now been added to this successful run.

Topman Volkswagen: dicht bij deal met Ford

Gepubliceerd op 13 jun 2019 om 12:13 | Views: 988

WOLFSBURG (AFN/BLOOMBERG) - Het Duitse autoconcern Volkswagen is dicht bij een deal met de Amerikaanse branchegenoot Ford Motor voor samenwerking op het gebied van elektrische auto's en autonoom rijden. Dat zei topman Herbert Diess van Volkswagen op een bijeenkomst van topmanagers op het hoofdkantoor in Wolfsburg.

Volgens Diess verlopen de gesprekken voorspoedig en kan binnenkort een formele overeenkomst worden getekend. Vorig jaar kwam al naar buiten dat Ford en Volkswagen in overleg waren over samenwerking bij elektrisch en autonoom rijden. Door de krachten te bundelen kan flink worden bespaard op de hoge kosten voor onderzoek en ontwikkeling van deze technologieën.

Diess drong er verder bij de topmanagers op aan om sneller werk te maken van het afslanken van Volkswagen, om zo de tegenwind waar het bedrijf mee kampte beter het hoofd te kunnen bieden. Zo gaat Volkswagen de komende jaren duizenden banen schrappen om kosten te besparen en wordt meer digitaal gewerkt.

Beursgang truckdivisie Volkswagen op 28 juni

Gepubliceerd op 14 jun 2019 om 07:20 | Views: 52

Volkswagen 13 jun
145,85 0,00 (0,00%)

VOLKSWAGEN AG VZO O.N. 13 jun
142,48 +0,30 (+0,21%)

WOLFSBURG (AFN/DPA/BLOOMBERG) - Volkswagen wil zijn vrachtwagen- en bussendivisie, met de merken MAN en Scania, op vrijdag 28 juni naar de beurs brengen. De waardering moet liggen tussen de 13,5 miljard euro tot 16,5 miljard euro. Het zou daarmee een van de grootste beursgangen in Europa van dit jaar worden.

De uitgifteprijs van de aandelen ligt tussen 27 euro tot 33 euro per aandeel. Volkswagen mikt op een opbrengst van wel 1,9 miljard euro. Het Duitse autobedrijf had eerder al gezegd dat de divisie, met de naam Traton, een notering gaat krijgen aan de aandelenbeurzen in Frankfurt en Stockholm. In september vorig jaar lekte voor het eerst uit dat Volkswagen een beursgang voor de activiteiten bestudeerde.

Het concern wil wel een meerderheid van Traton in eigen handen houden. De opbrengst van de emissie kan gebruikt worden voor investeringen in de truckmerken, die kampen met stevige concurrentie van Daimler en Volvo.

Zweedse accufabriek Northvolt start Europese productie accucellen

Artist impression van de Zweedse accufabriek van Northvolt. VW investeert 900 miljoen euro in de fabrikant van accucellen, die daarmee in Zweden kan starten met de productie. Later wordt ook een fabriek in het Duitse Salzgitter gebouwd.

Het Zweedse Northvolt heeft na een investering van Volkswagen van 900 miljoen euro, genoeg kapitaal opgehaald om de bouw van een accucelfabriek voor EV's te starten. Dit melden Northvolt en VW.

Volkswagen participeert voor 20 procent in Northvolt, waarmee ook een joint venture wordt opgezet om in 2023 een ??batterijcelfabriek in Salzgitter, Duitsland, te bouwen. Naast diverse Zweedse investeerders neemt ook BMW deel in Northvolt. De Europese Investeringsbank verstrekt een lening van 350 miljoen euro.

Northvolt meldt dat de bouw van de fabriek in het Zweedse Skellefteå in augustus begint. In eerste instantie gaat de fabriek 16 GWh aan accucellen per jaar produceren. Dit kan later worden opgeschaald.

"Vandaag is niet alleen een geweldige mijlpaal voor Northvolt, het is ook een sleutelmoment voor Europa, dat duidelijk laat zien dat we klaar zijn om te concurreren in de komende golf van elektrificatie", zei Northvolt ceo Peter Carlsson. Europa is op dit moment voor de inkoop van accucellen geheel afhankelijk van fabrieken in China, Japan en Korea.

Volkswagen Deliveries In May Present A Mixed Picture

In May, the Volkswagen brand delivered 512,100 vehicles worldwide, 5.1% fewer than in May 2018. There was a mixed picture in the regions: while deliveries by the brand in North America (+8.6%), South America (+5,4%) and the individual market of Germany (+2.2%) rose, there was, as expected, a fall in Europe (-6.1%). The situation in China remained unchanged. In May, Volkswagen succeeded in increasing its market share in a shrinking overall market.

Volkswagen Sales Board Member Mr Jurgen Stackmann said that “In terms of deliveries, May was a month of highs and lows for Volkswagen. In North and South America, our model policy is being rewarded by outstanding delivery figures. As expected, deliveries in Europe remained under the record value for the previous year, which was boosted by strong advance buying effects as a result of WLTP. This will also be the case in June as we have not had to take any special measures in the first half of the year. In view of the high volume of orders received and an improvement in delivery capabilities for petrol engines, we continue to expect a strong second half for the brand in Europe.”

Deliveries in the regions and markets in May developed as follows:
In Europe, the Volkswagen brand delivered 157,500 vehicles, 6.1% down on the record value for the same month last year. In Western Europe, there was a decrease of 5.5% to 134,500 vehicles.

The highlight was the home market of Germany, where 53,700 vehicles were handed over to customers in May, representing a rise of 2.2%. The SUV models T-Roc, T-Cross and Touareg continue to be very popular.

As in Western Europe, Volkswagen also recorded a fall in vehicle deliveries in Central and Easter Europe. The brand closed the month with a drop of 9.4% to a total of 23,000 vehicles delivered.

The North America region continued to develop positively for Volkswagen. Despite a shrinking overall market, the brand delivered 54,400 vehicles, a rise of 8.6%over May 2018. The USA made the greatest contribution to this success. In the largest single market in the region, the brand delivered 35,700 vehicles, 14.4% more than the same month last year. In May, the Tiguan was once again the most successful Volkswagen model, while the Atlas recorded the strongest month since its market launch. In Canada too, Volkswagen delivered more vehicles than in May 2018 (+6.6%). With a fall of 6% to 10,700 vehicles, Mexico had little impact on this success.

In South America, Volkswagen achieved positive overall results in May. The brand delivered 44,300 vehicles, a rise of 5.4% compared with the same month last year. This was mainly due to the largest single market of Brazil, where Volkswagen handed 36,500 vehicles over to customers in May, a rise of 29.8%. The strength of the Volkswagen brand in Brazil was also sufficient to compensate for the decline of 60.1% to 4,100 vehicles in Argentina. Here, the general economic situation remained difficult, with a severely shrinking overall market.

In the Asia-Pacific region, Volkswagen delivered 245,400 vehicles, down 8.0% on May 2018. The situation in China, the brand’s largest single market, remained unchanged in May. In an overall shrinking market Volkswagen handed 233,900 vehicles over to customers (-7%) and therefore succeeded in increasing its market share.

Volkswagen To Launch New ID.3

Volkswagen will launch production of the ID.3 before the year is out. The compact-class model is the first member of the ID. family a new generation of progressive electric vehicles whose lithium-ion batteries will allow for a range of up to 550 kilometres, making the models perfect for comfortable long journeys. The future owners of ID. models won’t need to worry about the durability of their batteries either, as Volkswagen will guarantee that the batteries will retain at least 70% of their usable capacity even after eight years or 160,000 kilometres.

Mr Frank Blome, Head of the Centre of Excellence in Salzgitter said that “Our goal is to make sure the batteries last as long as the cars.”

Volkswagen will offer the ID. batteries in different sizes. This marks a completely new departure as compared to the approach taken with the brand’s current range of electric vehicles. If an owner of an ID. vehicle is not really interested in being able to drive long distances (for example because they mainly only drive short distances in a city), they can opt for a battery with a relatively low energy content. This, in turn, will make their vehicle less expensive. Those who frequently drive long distances, on the other hand, can choose a larger battery, which will make them more flexible in terms of how they use their car. Depending on the battery and vehicle type in question, a maximum range of approx. 330 to 550 kilometres can be achieved. Volkswagen also designed the batteries to be able to accommodate a charging capacity of up to 125 kW, which is higher than anything achieved to date in the ID.3 segment and ensures fast charging and shorter charging stops.

Volkswagen With New Software Unit

Volkswagen AG intends to group more than 5,000 digital experts together in its new “Car.Software” unit with Group responsibility for software in the vehicle by 2025. The company plans to develop significantly more software in the car and for vehicle-related services itself and to boost the in-house share of software development from the current figure of less than 10 percent to at least 60% by 2025. In future, there is to be one uniform software platform with all the basic functions for all vehicles throughout the Group. This will consist of the vehicle operating system “vw.os” and the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud. By 2025, all new Group models are to run on this software platform. The first vehicle based on this software platform will be the ID.31), which is to make its world debut at the IAA International Motor Show this year. Currently, more than 20,000 potential customers have registered for the pre-booking of this model.

Currently, up to 70 control units with operating software from 200 different suppliers need to be integrated in Volkswagen brand vehicles. In addition, there are different systems with similar functions within the Group, for example for infotainment and navigation. One uniform operating system with the same basic functions for all brands and the use of the Volkswagen Automotive Cloud for all Group models will considerably simplify the situation.

The same applies to the brands’ “digital ecosystems” which will be used for offering the services. All the brands need certain basic services, for example a simple search function for electric charging stations. At Volkswagen Passenger Cars, this service is called “We Charge”. For example, the basic functions “search for nearby stations” or “pay with different modes of payment” could be standardized for all brands.

With its standard software platform, Volkswagen is aiming to achieve significant economies of scale. In future, the vehicle fleet will include more than 10 million fully connected new vehicles per year, which will significantly reduce the cost of integrating the software in each individual vehicle. At the same time, digital ecosystems with a growing number of vehicles connected will become increasingly attractive for new partners and new customers.

By 2025, Volkswagen intends to group more than 5,000 experts in competence areas such as software development, electrical and electronics development, connectivity, automated driving, user experience, cloud architecture and e-commerce together in an agile “Car.Software” unit. They will work in five key areas and develop packages extending across the brands.

The objective is to orient the unit towards the requirements of innovative software development. For this purpose, Volkswagen will be contributing flexible working models, the latest collaboration technologies and agile types of cooperation. This year, about 500 experts are to work together in this agile software unit. The figure is already due to rise to about 2,000 by 2020.

In addition to grouping together experts from brands and companies within the Group, Volkswagen intends to boost the workforce especially by recruiting new specialists and consolidating strategic participations and acquisitions. It is intended to actively present the new software unit and to target IT and tech experts.
