On April 16, Southern California-based Karma Automotive chose Auto Shanghai 2019 to present three new products illustrating its immediate, mid-term and long-term future.
The new 2020 Karma Revero GT luxury electric vehicle exhibited will be available for sale during the second half of 2019 with improved technology, interior and exterior options, and a TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engine supplied by BMW.
The company also debuted its Karma Pininfarina GT coupe, combining a 2020 Revero GT with newly-designed body style, panels and interior, offering an alternative design interpretation.
The Karma SC1 Vision Concept was exhibited as an indication to Karma’s future based on full BEV capabilities and 5G connectivity displayed in a roadster package.
Founded in 2014, Karma Automotive designs, engineers, and markets luxury electric vehicles, from its Southern California base of operations.
Karma employs nearly 1,000 people across four sites in Irvine and Moreno Valley, California; Troy, Michigan; and Hangzhou, China.
“Karma will come to Europe and the Middle East next year and then Asia, we will be in China by 2021,” said Karma CEO Dr. Lance Zhou.

On April 8, Volkswagen informed that following the world premiere of the Multivan 6.1 in February, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is showing the new Transporter 6.1 for the first time today in Munich at bauma 2019, the world’s largest trade fair for construction machinery and appliances of every kind from 8 to 14 April.
The new Transporter 6.1 debuts in Munich with an unparalleled variety of vehicle body variants: as a panel van, a Kombi and as a single or double cab pick-up.
An example of the technical changes is seen in the switch from hydraulic to electro-mechanical power steering, a system replacement so complex that it normally happens within a product line only when moving completely to the next generation.
As a result of the electromechanical steering, a fully new spectrum of driver assistance systems and thus a significant increase in safety and ease of use are introduced to the product line.
In addition, a new way of loading long items of cargo has been devised; they can now be pushed under the double bench seat on the passenger side.
This increases the maximum cargo compartment length from 2,450 mm to 2,800 mm and with the extended wheelbase from 2,900 mm to 3,300 mm.

On March 12, SSAB informed that it is a partner in the Gacha all-weather autonomous shuttle bus premiered in Helsinki last week.
The autonomous minibus is the outcome of collaboration between Finnish robotics company Sensible 4 and the Japanese company MUJI.
SSAB provided its expertise in special steels to the project by donating tubes made of Docol steel for the bus frame to give the lightness required.
The company’s goal is for driverless buses to be part of public transport in 2021.
SSAB has sponsored the first shuttle bus by donating the Docol steels, both round- and square-shaped Docol Tube 780 and Docol Tube 980 precision tubes. In addition, SSAB provided Docol Tube 700LA for the chassis structures. The precision tubes were required to have good bending properties since the body panels of the bus feature many curves. The bus weighs just around 2,000 kg and so it was important to minimise the weight of the steel structures. SSAB’s high-strength steels enable lighter and more durable frame structures.
