BMW to open new factory in Hungary
The BMW Group has announced a new €1 billion plant in Debrecen, Hungary, to expand its European operations. The factory will have an annual production capacity of 1,50,000 units and will produce BMW-badged cars. The factory will employ over 1,000 people and take the total number of the brand’s plants to 18, with 13 of those in Europe. This makes sense, given that Europe takes nearly half of all BMW Group sales. It’s not yet been announced which models will be produced at the plant, but, given that BMW has factories in the US and Asia, it’s likely that the plant will cater to European demand. BMW Group boss Harald Krüger said: “The BMW Group’s decision to build this new plant reaffirms our perspective for global growth. After significant investments in China, Mexico and the US, we're now strengthening our activities in Europe to maintain a worldwide balance of production between Asia, America and our home continent. Europe is the BMW Group’s largest production location. In 2018 alone, we're investing more than €1 billion in our German sites to upgrade and prepare them for electric mobility.” The Hungarian plant will be future-proofed by being compatible with production of electrified cars as well as conventional models, said BMW production boss, Oliver Zipse. It hasn't yet been announced when the first cars are expected to roll out of the plant.

Wuling shows Baojun 530-based SUV at GIIAS
SAIC-owned Wuling motor company has unveiled a new SUV, which is its own rendition of the Baojun 530. The company has showcased this new SUV at the ongoing GIIAS motor show in Indonesia. For those who don’t know, the Baojun 530 SUV will form the basis for the first model from MG Motor India which will be launched sometime next year. Wuling has not yet revealed the market name of this new SUV and is simply calling the model “Wuling SUV” in the Indonesian market. The vehicle has same body panels as the Baojun 530 but gets subtle changes, all around. The grille on this SUV is different, replete with a large Wuling logo that sits at its centre. The India-bound Baojun 530 made its China debut in March 2018. Measuring 4,655mm in length, 1,835mm in width and 1,760mm in height, the 530 is slightly bigger than a Jeep Compass. With its large dimensions and long equipment list, MG India is confident of pricing its first SUV just under Rs 20 lakh. On the inside, the Baojun 530 sports a dual-tone colour scheme. The design of the dashboard is neat and tidy and houses a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. In China, the Baojun 530 is available with the option of a pair of petrol engines – namely a 1.8-litre naturally aspirated unit and a 1.5-liter turbo-charged one. For the Indian market, MG is expected to source a Fiat 2.0-litre diesel engine option from FCA India. MG Motor is currently working on heavily localising the restyled and redesigned Indian Baojun 530 SUV. It will be produced at SAIC’s plant (formerly owned by General Motors) in Halol, Gujarat. Apart from the Wuling SUV, the company has also showcased the E100 small electric car at the show that was also seen testing on Indian soil recently.   Image source   [...]

British campaign pressures Pakistan to swap doctors jailed for ‘terror’ offences

Locally assembled Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R deliveries begin
Kawasaki India launched the locally assembled Ninja ZX-10R and the Ninja ZX-10RR a few months back. By locally assembling the motorcycles, prices for the Ninja ZX-10R dropped by Rs 6 lakh, while the Ninja ZX-10RR is now Rs 3.1 lakh more affordable than the CBU bikes. The drop in prices made the Ninja ZX-10R, the most affordable 1,000cc superbike on sale in our country. And it didn’t come as a surprise that close to 100 bikes allotted for India in the first batch sold-out in record time.  Now, both the locally assembled superbikes have arrived at dealerships and deliveries have begun, with Anzen Kawasaki already delivering one of each bike on August 3. The locally assembled ZX-10R and 10RR will be sold as single-seat versions in our market. By offering both the motorcycles without a pillion seat; Kawasaki can avoid homologation requirements in terms of engineering a saree guard for the bike. Both the litre-class motorcycles will be equipped with a rear cowl, but will not have pillion footpegs. However, customers do have an option to add a pillion seat as an accessory, which will cost them around Rs 38,000. Powering the Kawasaki superbike is a 998cc, in-line four motor churning out 200hp at 13,000rpm and 113.5Nm of torque at 11,500rpm. It features a six-speed gearbox and a quickshifter as standard fitment. It gets electronic aids such as traction control (S-KTRC), multi-level power modes, launch control (KLCM), ABS control (KIBS), cornering management (KCMF) and an engine braking function (KEBC) – all of which are controlled by an inertial measuring unit (IMU). The ZX-10RR is a more track-focussed version of the standard superbike and gets superior Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres, which are wrapped around lighter 7-spoke Marchesini forged aluminium alloy wheels. Finally, the engine gets a different head design that can accommodate race-spec cams. The ZX-10R and the 10RR are the most powerful and expensive motorcycles from the Japanese brand’s portfolio to be assembled in our country. Both the motorcycles are CKD imports and will be assembled at Kawasaki’s Chakan plant. The Japanese two-wheeler giant also has plans to make India its export hub and might launch low displacement motorcycles in our market in the future. [...]
