Although the two are manufacturers of great importance in the market, both Nissan and Renault electric car users have seen their models suffer more breakdowns over time. That is what emerges from the information of a study that shows which cars have been the ones that more times they have visited the workshop last year 2021. And in those, the breakdowns with Nissan and Renault are noticeable.
Electric cars can break down
We have always stressed that electric cars are less complex than combustion ones. This is done because they are vehicles that have elements that are less susceptible to wear, which makes them much simpler in terms of maintenance, which translates into savings of up to 30%.
However, these are still mechanical at their best, where electric cars are still suffering from own faults of its nature… something that the brands and users of Nissan and Renault have verified. It’s more; while the combustion engine typically has about 30,000 parts, an electric engine reduces these components by 60%.
Keep in mind that the prices of this type of vehicle are still high, so drivers look for those figures that the cars can be more than reliable. But that is not what happens with these brands, according to the report prepared by AutoData. This report takes into account both visits by maintenance such as breakdown, although it is this second aspect that makes the difference between them.
The Nissan, the ones that step on the workshop the most
In this sense, the problems that most can be affected in these vehicles they occur in relation to their batteries and those that affect the brake system, with certain cases in what includes the electrified propeller. Likewise, although reliability is an important factor, the vehicles that break down the least are not always the ones that provide the greatest satisfaction.
We see it with brands like Fiat, which are the ones with the greatest difference between the score obtained in reliability and that given by satisfaction. Getting into the report, it is pointed out how the Leaf first generation the one that goes to the workshop the most times and the one that presents the most problems, what to do is to see that, even if it is a car suitable for most users, it is not the one that can provide us with the most facilities.
However, its alliance partner, Renault, is also observed, who also has a place that is less proud in this ranking that AutoData has prepared. With it it is indicated that, despite being an interesting manufacturer (his Zoe is one of the best-selling vehicles), it has faults in its electrical systems with more frenquency than expected.
The behavior that we give to the car also influences
Because, as we say, these electric cars are not exempt from breakdowns. It is true that, the older it is, the more prone it can be to suffer some other complication (the one that heads the list is). But it is also proper to indicate that no brand is safe since BMW or Tesla also suffer.
The key question is how many times have they had to take their car to the workshop in the last twelve months. It is true that these problems do not occur in all cases, since generally the use we give the car influences its behavior more or less.
The analysis also states that the harsh winter of last year had a severe effect, since several drivers went to the workshop to check problems events in the batteries. Finally, according to Chris Wright, general director of the report, “the increasing complexity of vehicles in the aftermarket will be one of the biggest challenges that independent technicians will face. Until now, technicians did not need to also be electricians or computer repair specialists; however, this is changing as more and more vehicle functions become computerized.”
15.6″ bezel-less screen, 326 hp, autopilot and NFC support. Details about the new crossover Chery and Huawei
Chery has released details on the specifications of the Jetour Dasheng crossover, which was co-developed with tech giant Huawei.
Jetour Dasheng in the basic version is equipped with a 1.5-liter engine with 156 hp, which works with either a 6-speed “mechanics” or a “robot” with two clutches. Also in the lineup will be a 1.6-liter engine with 197 hp, which works with a preselective “robot”. D in both cases, the drive is front.
The older all-wheel drive hybrid version with the Kunpeng DHT installation, which consists of a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and two electric motors, will produce a total of 326 hp. power. The battery capacity is 19.27 kWh. A car can only travel 100 km on electricity, which is a lot for a hybrid. With the combined operation of internal combustion engines and electric motors, fuel consumption is only 1 liter per 100 kilometers.
In the cabin of Jetour Dasheng there is a large horizontally oriented tablet without frames, the diagonal of which is 15.6 inches. The 8-inch digital instrument cluster screen is located in front of the driver. In the basic version, Jetour Dasheng is equipped with an augmented reality projection display.
The touch-sensitive climate control buttons are placed on the doors, and a retractable footrest is provided for the front passenger. Contactless door opening using a smartphone and NFC technology has also been announced. The car will offer adaptive cruise control, and later Huawei will implement Level 3 Autopilot, which allows you to take your hands off the wheel.
The launch of Jetour Dasheng sales in China is scheduled for the second half of 2022.
Tesla did not receive special conditions and abandoned plans to enter the Indian market
Tesla has abandoned its plans to enter the Indian market. This is attributed to the inability of the Indian government to achieve tariff cuts.
This could be a blow to the expected number of jobs that could be created in India with Tesla’s presence. India remains the largest market in the world where Tesla has yet to be officially represented. Strong import tariffs have been a major impediment to Tesla’s entry into the Indian market. However, there were some indications that the company could enter the market in 2022. Previously, an Indian facility was established in Bangalore as a local arm of the brand.
India has an incentive strategy for local EV manufacturers, including high import tariffs on EVs. This policy has made it difficult for foreign electric vehicles from China and the US to enter the market. Tesla planned to build an electric car factory in India, but intended to see how its cars perform in the market first. The Indian government, through its transport minister, has said it wants Tesla to build cars inside India rather than relying on imports from China. In addition, the country has not yet established a service center and Supercharger charging stations.
Some of Tesla’s key employees in India are currently being transferred to work in other countries. The government will not provide Tesla with special conditions for the construction of the plant, so the company will continue to develop in other countries for the time being.
Tesla Model T assembled in Germany. It’s a tank
Tesla Model 3 often undergoes various kinds of alterations: the car has already been turned into a snowmobile and a real SUV, but this has not happened yet. Bloggers in Germany have turned the Model 3 into a real tank.
All work was done fairly quickly – in just a month, while most of the time was spent on the construction of a suspension for tracks weighing 1.3 tons each. In addition to a considerable number of wheels in the suspension, a total of 24 suspension struts are used.
As a result, the ground clearance of such a comfortable 6-ton electric tank was 80 cm – you can not be afraid of even the toughest off-road. Bloggers have presented only a video of the remake so far, but a video with a real off-road ride should soon appear on the channel. The authors of the alteration have already invited Elon Musk to join the Model T off-road test.
