« Researchers show simple addition of quartz powder to Li-S electrolyte slows capacity loss | Main | Toyota Environmental Activities Grant Program accepting application for 2017 awards » China-based automobile manufacturer Guangzhou Automobile Group (GAC Group), the parent company of GAC Motor, has begun construction of a large industrial park for electric and intelligent vehicles as part of its efforts to boost its electric vehicle business. Located in Guangzhou’s Panyu district in China’s southern Guangdong province, the industrial park has a planned area of 5 square kilometers. More than 45 billion yuan (US$6.5 billion) of investment, from both GAC Group and other enterprises that will locate there, are expected to be poured into the project. The new electric vehicle plant, part of the industrial park, is expected to be completed by the end of 2018 with a total investment of 4.69 billion yuan (US$679 million). This will provide GAC Motor with a production capacity of 200,000 units per year. With a focus on smart manufacturing, innovative technologies and the development of an environmentally-friendly town, the industrial park’s aim is to become a collaborative, intelligent, open, innovative, and green center of manufacturing for electric and intelligent vehicles. It is also plays a significant role in pushing forward GAC Motor’s global branding strategy. In the coming five years, we will push out at least seven new electric vehicle models and cover three product series including pure electric, range-extending and hybrid. Our goal is for GAC Motor to take the lead in the EV business and achieve sales of 20,000 electric vehicles by 2020. According to figures compiled by the US Department of Energy (DOE) (earlier post), China alone accounted for 42% of global plug-in vehicle sales (316,800 of 756,000 units) in 2016. GAC Motor unveiled its first pure electric vehicle, the GE3, at the 2017 North America International Auto Show this January, and released the new plug-in hybrid sedan GA3S PHEV and plug-in hybrid SUV GS4 PHEV at Auto Shanghai 2017 in April. GAC Motor has signed strategic partnership agreements with the world’s top 10 auto suppliers, including Aisin Seiki, Michelin, Continental and Faurecia during Auto Shanghai. GAC Motor is also commencing talent recruitment, gathering global top talents and experts in Silicon Valley, Detroit and Boston to conduct advanced research and development to create innovative future mobility. GAC Motor’s year-to-year growth rate of 96% in 2016 was the highest among all Chinese brands in the corresponding period, doubling its sales volume to more than 380,000 units worldwide. The company ranked 5th among all brands in J.D. Power Asia Pacific’s 2016 China Initial Quality Study, the highest of all Chinese brands for the fourth consecutive year. GAC Motor has already built a presence in the international markets in regions such as the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America. The company aims to enter the US no later than 2019 to further its global footprint.

GAC Group, which is shorthand for Guangzhou Automobile Group, has started building a new manufacturing facility on a 2 square mile campus located in China’s southern Guangdong province. The factory will be dedicated to electric car production and autonomous vehicles. It is expected to cost nearly $700 million and will have a capacity of 200,000 cars a year once completed by the end of next year. The company expects the new factory to help it become recognized worldwide as a major manufacturer of autonomous electric cars. It will be surrounded by an environmentally friendly town whose workers will contribute to the smart manufacturing and culture of innovation at the new facility. “The planning and construction of this industrial park is a concrete step to implement the Chinese government’s green development goals for Guangdong and the national ‘Made in China 2025’ strategy,” says Yu Jun, general manager of GAC Group. “The move will help promote the development of the automobile industry and drive economic growth.” GAC’s first electric car, the GE3, was introduced at the 2017 North America International Auto Show in January. Its new plug-in hybrid sedan, the GA3S, and plug-in hybrid SUV, the GS4, were unveiled at the Shanghai auto show in April. “In the coming five years, we will push out at least seven new electric vehicle models and cover three product series including pure electric, range-extending and hybrid,” said Yu. “Our goal is for GAC to take the lead in the EV business and achieve sales of 200,000 electric vehicles by 2020.” Those are fairly modest goals, especially when compared to the more than one million electric cars Tesla says it will be building by 2020, but they offer another Chinese boost to the electric car market. The Chinese new car market is the largest in the world, with more than 20 million vehicles sold every year. That number is growing steadily and the Chinese government is actively promoting policies that will make more of them electrics. As China goes, so will go the world new car market. There is even a possibility that some of those GAC models could find their way to America in years to come, assuming The Donald doesn’t sign an executive order banning all imported cars from the US.

The crash box plays a key role in the car's low speed crash performance, and also important for high speed crash. Currently, the styling design goes ahead of structure design in a car's development, leading to the poor performance of the crash box which is designed under the constraint of styling. In this paper, a new method is put forward for coupling the design of styling and crash box's crash performance in the styling design phase of an B-class car. In this method, basing on the crash load case, the crash box's section force target is deduce by its energy absorption ratio. Then the design parameter is deduced. With this method, the compatibility between the styling and crash performance is evaluated during the early phase of the car's development. A compatible design of styling and crash performance can be acquired by the optimization of styling and under this method. Finally, the B-class car's crash result is shown in this paper for the verification of the effectiveness and engineeringfeasibility of this method. © Springer-Verlag 2013.

The motion vector relation of a car was built under the action of crosswind in general case, a multi-body dynamics model of the car was established by using ADAMS Car. Based on the external flow field analyses of body, the discrete aerodynamic six-component coefficients were translated into continuous aerodynamic forces by using the vector relation, the crosswind load was exerted in real time according to yaw angle of body; the transient crosswind stability simulation was executed according to ESV regulations. The influence rules of simplified aerodynamic load on crosswind stability were discussed, the quantitative simulation results are agree with the flow field qualitative analyses, which proves the correctness and reliability of the method. © 2016, China Mechanical Engineering Magazine Office.

The nitrogen-self-doped three-dimensional graphene-like networks (N-3D GNs) with suitable surface areas and hierarchical porous structures have been synthesized by an improved ion-exchange/activation method. The Pt nanoparticles supported on N-3D GNs give more than double mass activity and almost no degradation in surface area after 5000 cycles compared with a commercial Pt/C catalyst. The results demonstrate that the improvement in the support can reach 2.6 times the catalytic activity. This strategy is a direct way to reduce the catalyst cost and make the practical application of the catalyst a reality. This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015.
