Never heard of the Uri until now,it looks very adventurous!A pity about them having to close down.Except for Uri,is there another operating African carmaker?I don't know about the situation your country xtxe but in SA,it seems like the Asian companies (Chana,Chery etc) are bringing more and more poor quality trucks into the country,which I don't like at all.

chinesse made car in algeria

Des voitures chinoises seront assemblées en Algérie suite un à accord conclu entre un groupe chinois et son partenaire algérien GM Trade.
Les constructeurs chinois mettent le paquet pour conquérir le marché encore porteur de l'automobile en Algérie. Profitant des tergiversations des constructeurs européens à venir investir en Algérie, les Chinois passent à la vitesse supérieure en concluant deux accords avec des partenaires algériens pour le montage de véhicules touristiques et utilitaires. Avec cette offensive d'une rare agressivité économique, les Chinois semblent prendre de court les autres constructeurs automobiles, notamment français qui continuent à hésiter pour s'implanter en Algérie. Une pierre, deux coups. Ces partenariats avec des opérateurs algériens vont permettre aux Chinois de bénéficier, d'un côté, de facilitations fiscales et parafiscales promises par le premier argentier du pays, Karim Djoudi et, de l'autre, ils auront une mainmise sur le marché automobile en Algérie qui connaît un flottement après l'application de la nouvelle taxe sur l'achat des nouveaux véhicules prévue par la loi de Finances complémentaire 2008.

L'assemblage de véhicules en Algérie aura des répercussions considérables sur le prix de revient de ces voitures, ce qui pourrait convaincre les Algériens les plus récalcitrants à rouler chinois. La première voiture montée en Algérie sera ainsi le fruit d'un partenariat entre l'entreprise algérienne GM Trade et le groupe automobile chinois Shaan Xi. Un contrat de 100 millions de dollars a été signé à Alger entre les deux partenaires pour la réalisation d'une unité d'assemblage de véhicules à Sétif. L'unité entrera en production en 2010 avec une capacité annuelle pour l'assemblage de 10.000 véhicules tous types confondus de la marque de ce groupe chinois, soit 2.000 de type utilitaires, 6.000 industriels et 3.000 bus et mini-bus. L'accord a été signé en présence d'une responsable de la division promotion industrielle auprès du ministère de l'Industrie et de la Promotion des investissements (MIPI), Kheïra Slimi, du président de l'Union professionnelle de l'industrie automobile et mécanique (UPIAM), Brahim Bendris, et du vice-président de l'association d'industrie mécanique de Chine, Zhang Xiaoyu.

SA made Ford Ranger








Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA) president and CEO Jeff Nemeth is pretty clear about what he wants the new Ford Ranger to achieve in South Africa: “We want to be number two.”

Having often missed out in the past on a rostrum position at “number three, four” in the local one-ton bakkie market, Nemeth is positive the Ranger can upset Nissan, Isuzu and the Amarok by taking silver, just below the very popular Toyota Hilux.

The new Ranger certainly has the CV to achieve Nemeth’s goal. It proved sturdy, comfortable and highly capable at offroad and freeway testing in Mpumalanga this week.

It is especially the offroad grit of the Australian-designed bakkie Nemeth wants his marketing team to highlight to all potential buyers.

“With the new Ranger, I would expect the double cab to sell better than the old Ranger, especially the 4x4s. Sales of the current Ranger 4x4 have been disappointing. This is an area we want to focus on — it is a big opportunity for us. I’m sure we can do better,” says Nemeth.

The sales mix for the current Ranger is one-third single cab, one third double cab and the remainder extended, or super-cab.

Nemeth also notes that he does not expect the new Ranger to necessarily take market share from competitors in the hotly contested one-ton market, as he believes Volkswagen’s newcomer, the Amarok, grew the segment, more than ate into other manufacturers’ sales volumes.

Nemeth also believes the “car-like qualities” of the South African built Ranger will win buyers from the sports utility vehicle (SUV) segment.

“The new Ranger has all of the refinement of an SUV.”

Pricing for the Ranger workhorse starts at R174 000, VAT included. The super cab starts at R228 000, and the double cab at R259 400. The range tops out at R436 700 for the 3.2 l diesel XLT 4x4 automatic double-cab.

ONLY THE NAME REMAINS

FMCSA marketing, sales and service VP Dean Stoneley describes the Ranger as a “game changer” and “critical product” for Ford in South Africa.

He believes the much bigger, new-look bakkie, with its more aggressive US truck (bakkie) styling, will be found parked at the homes of entrepreneurs and hands-on professionals.

With a line-up of 23 derivatives, Stoneley is positive the range will fill any gaps left by the previous Ranger.

With new engines, new looks, a much quieter ride, and the vehicle sporting a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating as opposed to the two stars of the previous Ranger, the only thing that remains of the old bakkie line-up “is the name”, he notes.

Ranger chief programme engineer John Tatge adds that the vehicle can also be differentiated from the old Ranger, as well as from its competitors, by the fact that it offers the best backseat legroom in a double-cab.

Safety has also improved vastly, with the doors 40% stronger than on the previous Ranger, with the vehicle frame twice as stiff as its predecessor.

The Ranger also offers a water wading depth of 800 mm — 1 000 mm higher than the nearest competitor.

“Everything on the vehicle under 800 mm is submersible,” says Tatge.

There are also a host of technology features available on the newcomer, such as hill descent control, hill launch assist, trailer sway control, a rearview camera system to help park the beast, and USB/iPod/Bluetooth connectivity with voice control.

The vehicle was tested in 15 countries, South Africa included, before its launch.

VEHICLE SPECIFICATIONS

The new Ranger is available in 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, as well as two ride heights, with the 4x2 Hi-Rider sharing the same frame as the 4x4 model.

The single cab and the super cab offer load box volumes of 1.82 m3 and 1.45 m3 respectively, with the double cab at 1.21 m3 . (The double cab also has 23 storage spaces, one of which is the central console which can keep six cans cool via a duct from the air conditioner. The glove box can also hold a 16-inch laptop.)

A new 3.2 l Duratorq TDCi five-cylinder diesel engine offers 470 Nm of torque, with power rated at 147 kW. Fuel consumption in a combined cycle ranges from 8.4 l/100 km on a 4x2 variant, to 9.2 l/100 km on a full-option 4x4 model.

The 2.2 l Duratorq TDCi four-cylinder diesel engine delivers peak torque output of 375 Nm and power output of 110 kW. When fitted to a 4x2 model, the engine consumes 7.6 l of fuel for every 100 km travelled in a combined cycle.

The 2.5 l Duratec four-cylinder petrol engine delivers 226 Nm of torque and 122 kW of power. Fuel economy is rated as 9.8 l/100 km in a combined cycle.

The Ranger is fitted with an 80-litre fuel tank.

For the first time, selected Ranger diesel models will be available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The petrol models feature five-speed manual transmissions.

An electronically controlled transfer case – for both manual and automatic transmissions – allows drivers to shift on the fly from 4x2 to 4x4 high anytime via a knob on the centre console.

The new Ranger can tow up to 3 350 kg on selected models with diesel engines. Payload capacity is more than 1 200 kg on some 4x2 variants, with ground clearance of up to 237 mm when fully loaded.

Selected models come with traction control, which maintains vehicle stability by maximising traction at each driven wheel. It also offers additional traction control with an electronic locking rear differential where both wheels are solidly connected for traction capability. Even with one wheel off the ground, full axle drive torque is still sent to the wheel that has grip.

The Ranger comes with a five-year/90 000 km service plan and a four-year/120 000 km warranty. Service intervals are at 15 000 km.

Ranger 4x4 customers also receive free off-road driver training.

SSWL targets Europe with Moroccan plant

By setting up a manufacturing facility in Morocco which will go on stream in 2013, Steel Strips Wheels Ltd plans to supply to a host of European OEMs.

Brief

The component maker is in the process of establishing a euro 20 million steel wheels plant in Morocco for meeting the requirements of French carmaker Renault. Construction is slated to commence in March 2012 with production slated to kick off by January 2013. Funding for the project will follow the equity and debt route. About 45 acres have been earmarked for the project at Tangiers by the Morocco government with finalisation expected by end-November. Of the total production, about 60 percent will target Renault with the balance to cater to the requirements of PSA Peugeot Citroën in France, Spain and Italy.


Pegged to have a production capacity of 2.5 million units per annum initially, Renault will consume 1.4 million units annually. The plant is expected to reach full capacity in a year and a half after which the second phase will be initiated, increasing capacity to five million units per annum. Supplies for Peugeot are likely to commence by end-2013 with the business likely to garner foreign revenues of almost $ 9 million with supplies headed to different European locations.

“Morocco has a good automotive market. Moreover, it will provide a gateway to Europe,” Dheeraj Garg, managing director, SSWL, told Autocar Professional. He says the company’s export target for 2011-12 is 1.8 million wheels and three million in FY’13.

The Moroccan project will result in considerable benefits to SSWL, mainly logistics, and help it target the four-million car market in some European countries. It is estimated that nearly 70 percent of the current transportation costs from the Chennai plant will stand reduced. Additionally, the Moroccan government has provided incentives to the project.

SSWL will be a single-source supplier to Renault’s four-wheel-drive MUVs and SUVs in Morocco, generating around euro 28 million for the company. SSWL already supplies steel wheels to Renault in Brazil, France, Spain and will also supply wheels for the Renault Logan and Dacia in Russia. The order to be implemented by end-2011 will involve supplies of 20,000 wheels per month. Total supplies over a five-year timeframe will work out to around 1.3 million wheels, generating foreign exchange of over euro 30 million or Rs 190 crore.

Brazil in focus

The wheel maker is also optimistic of selling 180,000 wheels to Renault Brazil against an earlier estimate of 1,20,000 for the Q2 FY 2011-12 due to rising demand for the Logan. This order size is likely to further increase in Brazil as the Logan gains in popularity.

Further, Steel Strips Wheels has been supplying to PSA Peugeot Citroën in Europe for the past four years and is likely to win its India orders as well. It is believed that Peugeot is considering new wheels for the Indian market that it will produce in its Sanand plant. The first meeting in this regard with SSWL has being scheduled for the first week of December.

Besides, SSWL is tying up fresh foreign orders for supplying steel wheels for different models of Volkswagen in Brazil and Germany, Audi in Germany and Fiat in Italy and Brazil. The order will be finalised within the next three months and will involve supply of over a million wheels to the European car manufacturers at these overseas locales, says Garg.

Earlier this year, an order was etched for supplying wheels for commercial vehicles to Volkswagen in Germany and Argentina. The contract was pegged for around 100,000 wheels per year with a foreign exchange revenue of over euro 1.7 million annually. The contract is expected to run over five years. In addition, business worth $ 38 million was concluded with Volkswagen Group company Audi last July.

Other contracts in SSWL’s bag include supplies of steel wheels to BMW Germany for its new models to be launched in 2013 and 2014. BMW’s three new models will draw 265,000 steel wheels annually and supplies will start from November 2013 to its Oxford, Leipzig and Regensberg plants in Germany. The projected order size is $ 32.65 million. SSWL is already supplying steel wheels to BMW's Oxford plant for its Mini model.

Meanwhile, SSWL has also realigned its focus towards the trailer and truck market where growth has been positive due to transportation requirements. The company has bagged a long-term contract with a leading trailer manufacturer Krone in Germany for supply of 60,000 wheels per year, worth an annual Rs 25 crore. Supplies will commence from November 2011 from SSWL’s Jamshedpur plant. The wheel rim manufacturer is also in talks with other OEMs in the trailer industry for similar volumes like Cargobull in Germany with new orders to flow in during the first quarter of next year.

Burgeoning India business

To cater to increasing demand for steel wheels, SSWL plans to set up a new plant in Pune spread over 40 acres, according to Garg. The plant will manufacture 0.7 to one million large wheels for OTR vehicles and will involve an investment of Rs 180-200 crore to be funded through equity participation and loans. A final decision on whether SSWL will opt for the Morocco facility or the Pune plant first will be taken later this month.

With the renewed focus on growth in the domestic and export market, SSWL is optimistic of clocking a topline of Rs 1,200 crore in FY’12, a 15 percent uptick over last year. Export sales are likely to cross 1.5 million wheels in FY’12 from 0.92 million wheels in FY 2010-11 and 0.46 million wheels in FY 2009-10.

The Chennai plant, which has been operating as an export hub, has recently upgraded its production capacity to six million wheels per annum for passenger cars from 2.5 million wheels earlier. The increased capacity will target the export markets of South America, Europe as well as domestic customers like Hyundai Motor India. SSWL is also considering exports to South East Asia, which is not yet tapped, from its Chennai plant.

Due to the strong growth in the CV market, SSWL is establishing a 0.5 million capacity truck wheel rim plant in its Chennai facility to cater to the requirements of Daimler Chrysler and Ashok Leyland apart from Tata Motors. The proposed truck wheel rims plant was originally to be commissioned by March 2012 but will now be delayed by a few months due to depressed market conditions.

The component maker has also received repeat export orders from trailer manufacturer KFZ, Austria a part of the Alcar Group. The business is valued at euro 0.3 million with supplies to begin in the first quarter of next year. KFZ is one of SSWL’s oldest customers in the winter wheels market of Europe. The company is supplying wheel rims to this group since 2007 and hopes to bag a large volume of business with the Alcar Group.

The company’s Jamshedpur plant, which was inaugurated in July last year, has been supplying steel wheels to Tata Motors from December 2010. It has a production capacity of a million tube type and tubeless wheels annually.

The Punjab-based SSWL is a supplier to the passenger cars, MUV, tractors, trucks, OTRs and two- and three-wheeler segments. It has three production facilities with nine million wheels manufactured for passenger cars at Dappar (near Chandigarh), six million wheels manufactured at Oragadam (near Chennai), with truck wheels produced at Jamshedpur.

Volkswagen may be reluctant to invest in Algeria
NAU

Tuesday, July 24th 2012

The German group car maker Volkswagen has started official contacts with top Moroccan officials with the view to erecting an assembly plant in the North African country, after failing to reach an accord with the Algerian authorities through its small and medium- sized ministry, since negotiations stared in 2010, Echouorouk reports.

European manufacturers facing difficult conditions at home are anxious to increase their share of the booming North African market for cars. To do this they need to establish manufacturing plants in North Africa to ensure volume sales. Renault, which has its manufacturing plant in Tangiers, has been negotiating with the Algerian government to set up a plant in Algiers but the talks are going slowly due to arguments over location of the factory site and Algeria’s policy of insisting on 49/51 majority Algerian state ownership which remains unattractive to international investors.

Volkeswagen proposed to the Algerian government according to Echouorouk that it commenced with 70 thousand cars dedicated for the domestic market, as a first step, then 100 thousand cars per year during the second phase. The third phase would be exporting to African and Arab markets.

The pressure on automobile manufacturers in Europe where the market for medium range cars is faltering to find new markets as witnessed by Peugeot PSAs closure and redundancy plans in France is intensifying. The North African market for medium range and smaller vehicles remains extremely healthy.

Volkswagen choisirait le Maroc à la place de l'Algérie pour sa nouvelle usine de production

25.07.2012

D’après un quotidien arabophone algérois, Volkswagen aurait récemment eu plusieurs réunions à Rabat avec de hauts responsables du ministère du Commerce, de l’Industrie et des Nouvelles Technologies afin de préparer l’implantation de son unité de production au Royaume. Le groupe allemand, qui avait prévu initialement d’installer sa 2ème usine d’Afrique en Algérie, serait finalement revenu sur sa décision, préférant opter pour la Kenitra Automotive City ou Tanger Med comme sites d’implantation.

Selon les informations rapportées par la presse algérienne, le constructeur automobile allemand Volkswagen, aurait entamé des pourparlers avec les autorités marocaines dans l’optique de transférer au Maroc son projet d’usine prévu initialement dès 2010 pour Alger. De fait, le management de l’entreprise aurait rencontré à plusieurs reprises au cours de ces dernières semaines les responsables du ministère à Rabat « pour préparer l’installation de l’usine, en arrêter les modalités et fixer les objectifs communs », rapporte le site lematin.dz.

Si la décision était arrêtée, le constructeur allemand devrait opter pour la Kenitra Automotive City ou bien Tanger Med comme sites d’implantation, révèle pour sa part l’Economiste.

Pour rappel, Alger avait déjà très mal pris le fait que Renault choisisse Meloussa (dans la région de Tanger) comme site d’implantation pour son usine de construction nord-africaine, considérant que cette dernière lui revenait de droit. Malgré l'ire provoquée, l’industriel français avait tout de même opté pour le Maroc parce qu’il estimait ce dernier en avance sur son voisin dans le volet des équipements automobiles. Un choix avisé.

Car de fait, les lacunes du tissu industriel algérien sont nombreuses. A ce titre, le patron de Renault Algérie, Stéphane Galoustian, dénonçait dès 2008 les défaillances qui singularisent la réalité industrielle du pays : « Où sont les zones franches ? Où est ce tissu industriel qui serait à même de contribuer à la création d’une industrie automobile ? Comment voulez-vous y parvenir si le gouvernement vous institue encore une taxe de 1 % sur le chiffre d’affaires ? ».

Plusieurs « tares » expliquent pourquoi les constructeurs automobiles délaissent l’Algérie

Quatre ans plus tard, ces questions se posent toujours, les choses n’ayant évolué que peu ou prou de l’autre côté de la frontière. Rongée par une corruption systémique, l’Algérie continue en effet de crouler sous un cadre législatif obsolète et le poids d’une bureaucratie « assommante » faites de « procédures administratives pesantes et anachroniques » commente lematin.dz. Le pays souffre aussi toujours de l’absence de système bancaire fiable et moderne et de ressources humaines qualifiées ; autant de facteurs qui, lorsque cumulés, viennent peser lourd dans le choix des constructeurs automobiles – motivés par un souci d’efficience et de rentabilité – de s’implanter d’un côté ou de l’autre de la frontière.

En ce sens, si à l’image de Renault, les dirigeants de Volkswagen choisissent eux-aussi de s’installer du côté marocain dans les mois à venir, plus qu’un coup dur pour l’Algérie, ce sera un violent soufflet infligé aux leaders d’opinion algériens dont la tendance à dénoncer systématiquement « l’opportunisme » du Maroc masque de fait la profonde incapacité à donner à leur propre pays les moyens – colossaux – à la mesure de ses ambitions.

The German group car maker Volkswagen has started official contacts with top Moroccan officials with the view to erecting an assembly plant in the North African country, after failing to reach an accord with the Algerian authorities through its small and medium- sized ministry, since negotiations stared in 2010, Echouorouk reports.

European manufacturers facing difficult conditions at home are anxious to increase their share of the booming North African market for cars. To do this they need to establish manufacturing plants in North Africa to ensure volume sales. Renault, which has its manufacturing plant in Tangiers, has been negotiating with the Algerian government to set up a plant in Algiers but the talks are going slowly due to arguments over location of the factory site and Algeria’s policy of insisting on 49/51 majority Algerian state ownership which remains unattractive to international investors.

Volkeswagen proposed to the Algerian government according to Echouorouk that it commenced with 70 thousand cars dedicated for the domestic market, as a first step, then 100 thousand cars per year during the second phase. The third phase would be exporting to African and Arab markets.

The pressure on automobile manufacturers in Europe where the market for medium range cars is faltering to find new markets as witnessed by Peugeot PSAs closure and redundancy plans in France is intensifying. The North African market for medium range and smaller vehicles remains extremely healthy.

Bentley bientôt au Maroc
(Bentley soon in Morocco)

L’accord entre la CAC (importateur et distributeur de Volkswagen,
Audi et Porsche) et Bentley pour distribuer la marque anglaise au Maroc est proche de la concrétisation,
même si rien n’est encore signé. Toutefois, les négociations sont bien avancées et l’ouverture d’un show room à Casablanca est prévue pour début 2014.
CAC est l’interlocuteur naturel de Bentley dans la mesure où le groupe Volkswagen est propriétaire de la marque
anglaise fournisseur en voitures officielles de la Reine Elizabeth II.

En Afrique, Bentley ne dispose de concessions qu’en Egypte et en Afrique du Sud.

Italian Automaker Ferrari Officially in Morocco



Casablanca- The Italian luxurious automaker, Ferrari officially arrives in Morocco after the inauguration of its first showroom on September 26 in Ain Sebaa,
Casablanca, according to daily La Vie Eco.

Enrico Galliera, senior vice president of sales and marketing in Ferrari,
said that the brand has chosen the Kingdom among other African countries “because of its the potential in terms of economic growth,
especially in the tourism sector.”

Morocco is the 61st country in the world and the third in Africa, along with South Africa and Egypt,
where the famous supercar brand, Ferrari is marketed.

The marketing of Ferrari vehicles by Universe Motors, the distributor of Honda and Seat, will take place in a showroom of 300 m2 in Casablanca,
where the full collection of the brand, including California, the F12 Belinetta, the FF and the upcoming Ferrari 458 Speciale will be on display.

Universe Motors aspires to sell between 10 and 15 Ferrari per year in Morocco.
“We have set ourselves the objective of selling 12 cars in 2014 and double the number the next year,” Mehdi Tak-Tak, CEO of Ferrari Morocco,
was quoted as saying by news outlet Media24.

According to Medias24, the choice of Universe Motors to take charge of distributing Ferrari in Morocco is not a coincidence.
The direction of the Italian brand stated that several candidates had applied to receive this honor, but only three were selected to be audited.
Universe Motors was selected after a rigorous process that lasted six months.
