MG Rover write-off avoidance scheme helps bodyshops increase parts sales and expand customer base   Print  
XPart?s ?Close Call? offers bodyshops and parts wholesalers an opportunity to generate an extra revenue stream by saving MG Rover cars from being written off the road Thursday, 15th October 2009

XPart’s ‘Close Call’ offers bodyshops and parts wholesalers an opportunity to generate an extra revenue stream by saving MG Rover cars from being declared a write-off

Bodyshops and parts wholesalers looking to increase parts sales and offer added value to new and existing customers are helping to prevent MG Rover cars from being declared a total loss by using XPart’s MG Rover write-off avoidance programme, Close Call. The scheme allows garages to offer insurance assessors a compelling alternative to writing an MG Rover car off the road by providing a competitive quote on the parts required to repair it. Since the launch of Close Call in 2006, it has saved nearly 80 percent of MG Rover vehicles submitted for consideration in the UK from being written off the road. Bodyshop Taggarts of Motherwell and XPart parts wholesaler Allen Ford of Coventry are both successful users of the scheme.

Automated Manual Transmissions resolve cost/benefit challenges for developing markets   Print  
The practicality of replacing a conventional manual transmission with an AMT has been demonstrated by Prodrive?s ability to physically convert existing manual transmissions in some cases Wednesday, 14th October 2009

Motorsport-derived gearbox technology delivers fuel economy and durability benefits to truck, bus and scooter manufacturers

A gearbox technology originally developed for the world’s most successful rally cars is being applied to a surprising range of vehicles, from scooters to buses, to meet the demanding challenges of developing markets. Variable levels of driver skill mean that vehicle purchasers are attracted to the convenience and ease of operation offered by automatic transmissions but the associated fuel consumption penalty and increase in vehicle cost is not acceptable in developing markets dominated by small, economical vehicles. Technology consultancy, Prodrive, has demonstrated a range of automated manual transmission (AMT) solutions that can be scaled to suit a variety of applications, are thoroughly proven and require very little capital investment beyond existing manual gearbox production lines.

Potential breakthrough in hybrid system costs could lead to high volume applications   Print  
Arrangement of the key elements of the UCEHP showing the VR pulley on the crankshaft end, the B-ISG on the cylinder block and the traction motor integrated with the transmission Tuesday, 13th October 2009

New modular approach offers highly effective hybrid solution for mainstream applications with low investment, low risk and minimal impact on existing vehicle hardware. 

Widespread adoption of hybrid technology has been held back until now by the high investment and piece costs involved, coupled with uncertainty over future demand. To help address these challenges and make hybrid systems commercially viable for high volume application, a consortium led by powertrain engineering consultancy Integral Powertrain is developing a modular hybrid system that offers a technology ladder from micro hybrid to full plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) while minimising investment in either new hardware or new vehicle architecture. Integral Powertrain’s partners in the project include Jaguar Land Rover, electronics specialist Smart Power Solutions and transmission specialist Drive System Design. Funding has been provided as part of the Technology Strategy Board’s Integrated Delivery Programme by both the Department for Transport and the Technology Strategy Board.  Work on the Ultra Cost-Efficient Hybrid Powertrain (UCEHP) project began in July 09, based around a conventional transverse engine and gearbox layout.
