  2. In February 2018, Xinhua Finance and Economics (XHF), a subsidiary of Xinhua News Agency, published a list of the top 500 global market capitalization companies in 2017. It ranked the listed companies according to their market capitalization (market capitalization = unit stock price * number of shares issued, whichever is the closing data on December 31, 2017). According to the ranking, the top ten companies in the global automotive industry are Toyota Motor and Volkswagen Motor. China's SAIC Group ranks seventh with 57.53 billion US dollars, and the automotive companies from Japan, Germany and the United States, which are the traditional automotive powers, each occupy three seats. As a supplier of automotive parts in China, Feilongjiang Li is proud to learn that SAIC Group is among the top ten automotive companies with market capitalization in 2018.
  3. Volkswagen CEO Walter Disney said the company may have to accelerate its plans for mass production of electric vehicles to achieve stricter greenhouse gas reduction targets for European cars than expected. Recently, the European Union has agreed to cut car carbon dioxide emissions by 37.5% by 2030, which is stricter than the original EU proposal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 30%. EU negotiators also set an interim target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from cars and trucks by 15% by 2025. Earlier, Germany had warned that stringent emission reduction targets could lead to job losses and damage the automotive industry. Germany is the largest automobile country in the European Union, with automobile output value of about 423 billion euros ($480 billion) in 2017. According to Disney, the 37.5% cut is more than 30% of Volkswagen's plan, so electric vehicle sales will account for more than 40% of Volkswagen's total sales by 2030 to meet emission requirements. As an electronic auto parts supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will keep up-to-date information on new technologies and new energy industries.
  4. According to data released by the European Association of Automobile Manufacturers (ACEA), registration of new cars in the European passenger car market fell 8.1% to 1,158,300 in November 2018, the third consecutive month of decline. Before the introduction of the new emission test (WLTP) in September, some automakers were eager to empty their inventories, which led to a 31.2% jump in vehicle registration in Europe in August. Since then, passenger car demand has begun to decline. Last month, the auto market continued to shrink in most European countries, including the five major markets. In the first 11 months of this year, the number of new car registrations in the European passenger car market increased by 0.8% to 14,585,417 over the same period last year. Central Europe is still the biggest driving force behind the growth of registrations. So far this year, the registrations of new cars in the region have increased by 9.6% year on year. Five major European markets showed different performances, including Spain (up 8% year-on-year), France (up 4.7%) and Germany (up 0.4% year-on-year). Italian market sales fell 3.5% year-on-year, while British market sales fell 6.9% year-on-year. As a component supplier, the decline of Asian brands has a direct impact on the sales performance of Feilongjiang Li. We look forward to the launch of new models and new technologies of various brands, which will enable the industry to recover slowly.
  5. According to foreign media reports, the Mirafiori plant of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in Turin has not been fully utilized. On Dec. 4, local time, the FCA told the union that it would temporarily lay off 3,245 blue-collar and white-collar workers, more than half of the total number of factory employees, due to the restructuring of the plant to produce electric vehicles. The Mirafio plant employs about 5,000 people, including workers in assembly, stamping and power assembly. The layoffs will affect all the workers in the assembly plant. About 2,445 workers will be laid off on January 1, 2019. More than 800 workers will be laid off before March 4, 2019. The layoffs will continue until December 31, 2019. On November 29, local time, the FCA said it planned to invest more than 5 billion euros ($5.7 billion) in new models and engines in Italy over the next three years in order to make better use of factories and improve employment and profits. In addition, employees will be trained in electric and hybrid power assembly technology. Starting from 2020, the plant will increase the production of Fiat 500 electric models. The plant currently produces only Maserati Levante, which will be continued by workers in shifts. During the layoffs, project workers will be paid lower, which is funded by the Italian government and employers.
  6. The R&D investment of automobile enterprises is competing: transforming "high-tech automobile enterprises"? Who is the most interesting? International market: Volkswagen is most willing to invest in R&D Let's first look at the global sector, which car company has the highest investment in R&D. According to the Global Innovation 1000 Survey recently released by PwC, the world's automotive industry invested 16 billion US dollars in R&D in 2018, up 15.2%, after a survey of R&D investment expenditure of 1,000 listed companies in the world in 2018, which is the third largest industry in R&D expenditure. Volkswagen is the most invested company in the world, investing 15.8 billion US dollars in R&D in 2018. PricewaterhouseCoopers points out that Volkswagen has invested heavily in artificial intelligence and vehicle networking this year, and it has announced that it will invest 34 billion euros in research and development of electric vehicles, automatic driving, automotive services and digitization by 2022. According to the analysis, Volkswagen's turnover last year was 230.7 billion euros, and R&D expenditure accounted for 5.7% of the turnover. In addition, the data show that the automobile companies behind Volkswagen in R&D investment include Toyota ($9.8 billion), Ford ($7.3 billion), General Motors ($8.1 billion), Daimler ($7.8 billion) and Honda ($6.5 billion). PricewaterhouseCoopers also pointed out that Chinese enterprises are paying more and more attention to R&D. In 2018, R&D investment expenditure grew the fastest, an increase of 34.4%. Domestic market: SAIC, BYD and Guangzhou Automobile are excellent students in R&D. What is the investment in R&D by Chinese auto companies? All-media reporters noticed that according to the specific R&D costs announced in the financial reports of major listed companies in the first half of this year, the three companies with the highest R&D costs were SAIC 6.165 billion yuan, BYD 3.719 billion yuan (including its business investment in electronics, mobile phone components) and Guangzhou Automobile Group 1.707 billion yuan. In addition, although Chang'an Automobile, Dongfeng Group and Huachen China did not disclose the specific costs of R&D expenditure in their financial reports, they all indicated that R&D investment increased compared with the previous year. Chang'an Automobile is also one of the high-tech research and development enterprises. As a supplier, Chongqing Feilong Jiangli will work together with Chang'an Automobile to innovate and develop new parts and models.
  7. On November 13, 2018, the unveiling ceremony of Chang'an Automobile Research Institute, President of Chang'an Automobile Research Institute, was solemnly held at Chang'an Suzuki No. 2 Factory, marking the further improvement of the independent research and development system of Chang'an Automobile and bringing greater impetus to the promotion of "the third innovation and entrepreneurship". From 1 yuan to buy all the shares of Changan SUZUKI, to integrate the independent R & D system. It can be seen that Chang'an Suzuki has not been negatively affected by Japan's withdrawal. On the contrary, after a short period of integration and adjustment, Chang'an Suzuki will usher in an all-round development stage in China. In Changan SUZUKI operation, "light assets". Asset-light, also known as the light assets operation mode, refers to the firm firmly grasping its core business. In light asset mode, the enterprise firmly grasped its core value. Light assets operation is a capital strategy driven by value, and it is a new structure of enterprise strategy under the background of network era and knowledge economy era. Changan SUZUKI's "excellence" advantage Despite the current domestic market consumption environment, it is difficult to subversion of small cars. But in terms of product quality and user experience, there is no need to doubt the superiority of Changan SUZUKI's "boutique".

But while the safety belt is very effective, it also carries the potential for serious injuries in the event of a high-speed crash. It is possible for the chest to be crushed or severely bruised. A crushed chest can have potentially fatal consequences, such as cardiac arrest or bruised lungs. It is also possible that the neck can be broken, resulting in paralysis or even death. NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- American car buyers have been shifting away from larger vehicles, fearing higher gas prices, but they are leaving themselves vulnerable in a crash, claims the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.That's true even for small cars that get top crash-test ratings, the Institute said. In 23 USC 405 we read, “..the Secretary (of Transportation) shall make grants…to states that adopt and implement effective programs to reduce highway deaths and injuries resulting from individuals riding unrestrained or improperly restrained in motor vehicles”. As experts from the automobile industry warned, and as research has shown, restraints (seatbelts) increase, not decrease, the chance of an individual being killed or severely injured in an automobile accident. The implicit assumption contained in the statement, that highway deaths and injuries result from people not wearing seatbelts, is totally and demonstrably false. Yet that is the law of the land. In 23 USC 157 we read: “…(6) Savings to the federal government. The term “savings to the federal government” means the amount of Federal budget savings relating to federal medical costs (including savings under the medicare and medicaid programs under titles XIII and XIX of the Social Security Act (42 US 1395 et seq.), as determined by the secretary”. This pseudolegalistic nonsense was supposed to convince you that that forcing seatbelts on the public was going to save the Social Security System money! Apparently congress thought better of it, because they took this paragraph out in subsequent versions of the law. The case for seatbelts in automobiles was based on five false assumptions, something congress could easily have discovered before passing this legislation if they had bothered to ask the experts or, indeed, if they had merely listened to the experts, for the experts did try to tell them. They not only did not ask, they turned a deaf ear when they were told. As a result, thousands have died. The five false assumptions were these: 1. Most people who are killed in automobile accidents are killed in head-on collisions. In fact, according to the government’s own data, fewer than two percent of all collisions are head-on collisions and fewer than 14% of all fatal collisions are head-on collisions. 2. People are killed in head-on collisions by being thrown through the windshield. In fact, according to the latest available government data, of the 36,281 vehicle occupants who were killed in 2001 (the last year for which the government listed head-on collisions as a separate category) only 145 were “thrown through the windshield”. 3. Vehicle occupants would be saved if they were prevented from being thrown through the windshield by wearing a seatbelt. In fact, if the force on the occupant is sufficiently great to throw him through the windshield, the injury inflicted on the wearer by the seatbelt itself would be enough to kill him. 4. The passenger compartment is never stove in, in fatal collisions. In fact, the overwhelming majority of motorists who are killed in fatal collisions are killed by being crushed to death when the passenger compartment is stove in. The seatbelt acts like an anvil, holding the occupant in place as he is being crushed to death. 5. The seatbelt itself will not injure the wearer. In fact, in a head-on collision as low as 30 miles per hour with one foot of crush, the seatbelt will exert a force on the wearer of 30 times his body weight, i.e., enough to kill him. The fact that the seatbelt itself might injure the wearer never occurred to them. The seatbelt proponents had never heard of Newton's second law of motion! After motorists were first required to use seatbelts, reports began to come in from emergency rooms that people were being killed by seatbelts. Instead of heeding these reports and repealing the seatbelt laws, congress put forward the theory that it was merely a mistake in seatbelt design, and ordered the addition of shoulder belts to seatbelts. This resulted in an increase in seatbelt fatalities, as motorists were now being killed by their shoulder belts as well as by their lap belts. When it became clear that seatbelts were not effective in preventing fatalities in head-on collisions, NHTSA, in line with its continuing mandate to promote seatbelts, put forward the theory that they would prevent people from being killed in roll-overs. Quite apart from the fact that most people couldn’t roll their cars over if they tried, it turned out that most people who were killed in roll-overs were killed by being crushed when the roof caved in. The best chance of survival in such a case is to duck down, jump clear or be thrown clear, all of which are prevented by a seatbelt. The effect of seatbelts in roll-overs was thus to increase, not decrease, the number of fatalities. NHTSA then put forward the theory that seatbelts would save people from being killed by preventing them from being ejected. For a person to be ejected from a vehicle in an accident requires an unusual collision or roll-over of extreme violence, in which case the vehicle is usually so badly crushed that anyone trapped in the vehicle by a seatbelt would be almost sure to be killed. We know from actual accident reports that a person has a better chance of surviving such an accident if he is ejected than if he is trapped in the vehicle. There is nothing new or mysterious about this. Anyone who has seen an old western movie has probably seen the scene where two locomotives are about to collide. The engineer and the fireman do not fasten their seatbelts in such a case; they jump clear to save their lives. Yet locomotives are far more resistant to crush than automobiles. In line with the mandate of congress, NHTSA continues to lobby states to pass primary seatbelt laws. One of the ways they do this is to stage what we call “The Show” for state legislative committees considering seatbelt bills. How many of the cast show up at a particular hearing tends to vary from state to state and year to year. The cast usually consists of the head of the state police department, the head of the state department of transportation, the head of the public health department (or their subordinates), the local representative of MADD (a wholly owned subsidiary of NHTSA) a lady variously described as a “mother” or “home maker”, someone claiming to be the relative of an accident victim, and possibly one or two other people, variously described as a “child advocate” or “safety advocate”, all reading from a script supplied to them by NHTSA. The testimony is a clever mixture of false, misleading, emotional and irrelevant statements. Someone usually tells a tearful story about how a relative got killed in an automobile accident and therefore the legislature should force people to wear seatbelts. The hope is that this non-sequitur will not be questioned. You are supposed to jump to the conclusion that the relative would have been saved if he had been wearing a seatbelt, even though there is not a single verified case of a person's life ever being saved by a seatbelt in an automobile accident. <a href="http://www.bucklepup.tv">Stop seat belt chime alarm</a>
