Have we hit peak automotive production?

Global automotive production may have already peaked and is likely to remain in a steady decline, the CEO of a top engineering company said this week. Volkmar Denner, CEO of German giant Bosch, shared his predictions during a news conference in Stuttgart while announcing plans to cut jobs in response to decreasing demand. "It could well be that we have passed the peak of automotive production," Denner told Automotive News.

Bosch claims to cut diesel NOx emissions to a tenth of legal maximum

At an event after its annual general meeting, Bosch announced a new diesel engine technology that reportedly slashes oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions. The engineering and automotive parts supplier claims vehicles equipped with this new technology can hit NOx output figures as low as 13mg per kilometre, with test vehicle averaging 40mg/km. That's well below the current real driving emissions (RDE) limit of 168mg/km, as well as the 120mg/km limit due to come into force in Europe from 2020.

Victoria throws support behind autonomous vehicle testing: Bosch, TAC, VicRoads partner up on 'Towards Zero' goal

The announcement, part of a $1.2 million investment with technology company Bosch, follows news in the past year that the South Australian government had successfully introduced legislation that would allow organisations to test self-driving vehicles on public roads.
