New Honda Amaze spied ahead of May launch
The new Honda Amaze has been caught in final production-guise ahead of its May launch. The vehicle was spotted by Autocar India staffers at its video commercial shoot on the outskirts of Mumbai. This is the first time the car has been seen on public roads after its global unveil at the 2018 Auto Expo earlier this year. Our staffers report the car appeared identical to the models displayed at the motorshow. What that means is styling is more grown-up than the current Amaze's and there's lots of new-age Honda cues to the look. While the cabin remained hidden from view, it is expected to remain unchanged from the show car. That means the Amaze will sport dual-tone interiors with top versions coming loaded with features like a touchscreen infotainment system, push-button start and cruise control, to name a few. The Amaze will also ace on space with rear room enhanced on the already spacious generation 1 Amaze. The new Honda Amaze will come with four engine-gearbox options. There will be a 1.2-litre petrol engine with the option of a manual or a CVT gearbox, as well as a 1.5-litre diesel with the option of a manual or CVT gearbox. The unique diesel-CVT combo is a first in the segment and should help the Amaze offer class-leading fuel economy. Like the petrol-CVT, the diesel-CVT will also offer paddleshifters.  Honda is expected to launch the new Amaze sometime in the second half of May, though bookings opened last week. The booking amount stands at Rs 21,000. Dealers are expecting the first lot of cars to be delivered by the end of next month.   [...]

Maqbool Hasan Khan obituary
My former teacher and PhD supervisor, Maqbool Hasan Khan, who has died aged 79, was a professor of English at Aligarh Muslim University, northern India, and a bilingual literary critic. Greatly interested in western philosophy and Urdu literature, Maqbool wrote in both English and Urdu.Shakespeare’s plays and Shakespeare criticism were Maqbool’s lifetime passion. He loved to quote Shakespeare in all situations and could discuss almost all major and minor Shakespeare critics. Though he wrote a book on Edward Dowden in the mid-80s, and essays on AC Bradley’s and Walter Raleigh’s Shakespeare criticism, his work is also full of interesting asides on other Shakespeare critics, including Coleridge, Granville-Barker, EE Stoll, LC Knights and G Wilson Knight. He obtained an MA in Shakespeare studies from the Shakespeare Institute at Birmingham University in 1974, after being awarded a British Council scholarship. Continue reading... [...]

VW Group appoints Herbert Diess as new CEO
Herbert Diess has taken charge of the Volkswagen Group as its new CEO, and will also continue to serve as Volkswagen’s brand chief. Previous group head, Matthias Müller, had been serving the company since the emissions scandal began in September 2015. The move is part of sweeping changes at the group, which includes Volkswagen, Skoda, Seat, Audi as well as luxury brands Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche and Bentley. Under the new structure, the car brands will be separated into three core divisions – volume, which will include VW, Skoda and Seat; premium, which features Audi; and super premium, which includes Porsche Bugatti, Lamborghini and Bentley. According to VW, the new structure has been created in order to streamline group management, leverages synergies in the individual operating units and speed up decision making. "Audi is the core brand for this competitive segment, which features BMW, Daimler and Lexus," Diess said, when asked whether Audi is the sole premium car brand. "Audi plays an instrumental role within the whole group. Our super premum segment is specifically for car enthusiasts who like to spend a lot of money on cars - people who really love cars and are petrolheads". Diess said that he will work to increase the efficiency of synergies across the group's companies, highlighting the importance of streamlining decision making processes in order to adapt to the fast-changing car industry. "My most important task will now be to join with our management team and our group workforce in consistently pursuing and pushing forward our evolution into a profitable, world-leading provider of sustainable mobility," he said. "In a phase of profound upheaval in the automotive industry, it is vital for Volkswagen to pick up speed and make an unmistakable mark in e-mobility, the digitalization of the automobile and transportation as well as new mobility services. "We believe we cannot control and manage this century, but our group activities will be co-ordinated and our political relationships will be well maintained," said Diess, when asked how the company plans to stay ahead of a constantly evolving car industry. Müller’s departure had also left a vacant space on Porsche’s board which has been filled by Oliver Blume, the current CEO of the brand. Müller led the Volkswagen Group through one of its toughest periods as it faced fire for its emissions cheating scandal. He inherited the top role from Martin Winterkorn, who resigned when the scandal broke. SAM SHEEHAN [...]

Mahindra launches high-performance EV brand Automobili Pininfarina
Mahindra & Mahindra today officially launched its new high-performance EV brand, Automobili Pininfarina that will "design, engineer and manufacture high technology, extreme performance, luxury electric vehicles". The announcement comes nearly three weeks after Autocar India exclusively broke the news.   Ex-Audi India head Michael Perschke will lead the new EV company, which will develop its first model – a Pininfarina-badged electric hypercar capable of accelerating to 100kph in 2sec and 300kph in less than 12sec – in 2020. While Mahindra hasn't provided any further details, our exclusive story revealed the hypercar will have the performance to rival the 1,500hp Bugatti Chiron and use modular underpinnings co-developed by Croatian electric supercar maker Rimac. Perschke, however, has revealed the electric hypercar will cost a little under 2 million Euros (around Rs 16 crore).   The model run will be limited to 100 units, and the line-up, which will also have SUVs, including a Lamborghini Urus fighter, will be equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving technology. Vehicles developed by the new company will leverage legendary design house Pininfarina's automotive design expertise.     The formation of Automobili Pininfarina fulfils the dream of Pininfarina's founders to make a road car under its own brand name. "This project helps me and my family to realise my grandfather's dream of seeing outstanding innovative cars, solely branded Pininfarina, on the roads," Paolo Pininfarina, chairman, Pininfarina SpA said.   “We will always remain at the high end of the luxury market. There will be no Tesla Model 3 equivalent from us,” said Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group. He further added that the company will develop "a rare collector's item" that will be "an innovative and pioneering product".   Today's announcement has been made on the eve of the Rome round of the Formula E series, in which Mahindra Racing is one of the front runners.   With operations based in Europe, the new Pininfarina car-making firm will work independently of its parent’s EV division, Mahindra Electric, in a conscious bid to create an all-new eco-system and culture that is required in this fast-paced business. The new company is said to have received an initial investment of around $100 million (around Rs 647 crore) from Mahindra, after which it will look for outside investment to scale up operations.   Also read Michael Perschke to head new Mahindra EV subsidiary Mahindra's high-performance EV start-up: 5 things you need to know   [...]
