EV service and repair: the next frontier to overcome

With EV numbers growing, it’s high time that an EV repair ecosystem was put in place, writes Pranjal Markale

Market growth for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to accelerate as companies improve battery technology and public recharging infrastructure and overcome barriers to purchase, such as high prices. Surging EV sales are testimony to this fact.

During H1 2022, sales of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) stood at 4.3 million, up 62% against H1 2021. For the full year 2022, the number of BEVs is expected to reach 8 million, while PHEVs will reach 2.6 million, according to the EV-Volumes report.

The growing adoption of EVs has gradually dispelled consumers’ concerns about their range, price, and reliability. Many consumers, however, are unaware of post-purchase service scenarios, especially those related to batteries. The battery is the most expensive part of an EV. Its failure, or gradual

Factory automation tackles labour shortage and energy bills

Automation can help plug the skills gap, free up space in factories and ensure new technology is sustainable and futureproof. By Alex Forrest

The automotive industry is far from immune from the workforce shortage, with the UK publication This is Money reporting that the country will see a 160,000 shortfall of staff by 2031. While the sector has traditionally led the way with automation on the production line, it fed those processes manually from a logistics point of view.

We’re aware of the extent to which the labour shortages are affecting industries, especially automotive. I have been having conversations with various carmakers who are facing a 50-100 person shortfall in their workforce. On top of that, the cost-of-living crisis is reducing the demand for new cars. Carmakers are therefore facing tough decisions to reduce or redeploy their workforce to stay competitive. This is where automation can support. While parts of

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review & Test Drive : Automotive Addicts

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) have been a force to help bridge a gap as we approach a future full of full-on electric vehicles (EVs). Such vehicles have proven to be quite efficient and the perfect commuter vehicle for those who take full advantage of its plug-in charging capabilities. In the scheme of having an affordable PHEV SUV, Mitsubishi has stepped into the game to bring us an all-new Outlander PHEV. After spending a week with the Outlander PHEV, I was enamored to welcome such a vehicle into my lifestyle with wide open arms from a brand that hasn’t been on my radar screen in a long time.

For my generation, born in the late 70s, Mitsubishi was a fun brand in the 90s and even in the early 2000s. I can remember good friends of mine having some of the wildest sport compact vehicles around that touted the Mitsubishi

2023 Lexus GX 460 Luxury Review & Test Drive : Automotive Addicts


2023 lexus gx 460 luxury

On occasion, I find myself reviewing somewhat aged “new” vehicles like the Lexus GX 460, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing considering it remains to be one of the most reliable vehicles on the road. However, that reliability comes with the fact that the current generation GX has been around for over 12 years now. Lexus continues to keep the GX around because there’s a dedicated fan base for its antiquated platform that touts a rugged body-on-frame architecture and a proven V8 drivetrain.

Performance and Driving Character

Despite the idea of the Lexus GX 460 being long overdue for a complete redesign, it remains to be a simplistic approach to what today’s crossovers and SUVs have turned into. With that, the Lexus GX 460 continues to be powered by a rather older 4.6-liter V8 engine that outputs a consistent 301 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque through an old
