Brembo’s new manufacturing process of brake discs introduced at the beginning of the year has encountered an issue, as some components could fracture without any prior warning.

The faulty parts ended up in certain 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia sports sedans, which are now being recalled in North America.

Only eight Giulias, which were built from February 17 to July 27, 2020, have been included in the safety campaign, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Driven: New Giulia Boldly Goes Where No Alfa Romeo Has Gone Before

The cars were identified by using supplier and plant production records, whereas those left out are said to have been built outside of the suspect period or simply put together with rear brake discs made using a different process.

“The suspect population period for vehicles in this recall began February 17, 2020, when rear brake discs with a new finish and new material mixing machine were introduced into production, through July 27, 2020, when the suspect parts were no longer used in production of vehicles included in this recall”, the safety agency explained.

The rear brake discs could fracture while driving, which would significantly increase the stopping distance of the vehicle, thus increasing the risk of having an accident.

The issue was brought forward by Brembo, which informed FCA Italy’s Quality Department on October 27. A couple of weeks later, the automaker’s Vehicle Regulations Committee decided to conduct a voluntary safety recall.

Authorized technicians will replace the rear brake discs on the affected Giulias free of charge. Reimbursements will be made and the recall is expected to begin on January 7, 2021.

外媒報導,中國最大的外國汽車製造商大眾汽車(Volkswagen AG)今天表示,由於武漢肺炎(新型冠狀病毒病,COVID-19)大流行中斷了全球某些晶片供應後,恐造成中國整體汽車生產中斷。

《路透社》稱,這場疫情大流行影響了全球汽車及零部件生產,身為全球最大的汽車市場的中國汽車製造又因嚴重依賴進口晶片,某些汽車電子組件的晶片供應的確受到了影響。

大眾汽車告訴路透社,因為晶片供應出現問題,恐造成中國汽車生產的中斷,加上中國市場逐步復,需求上升,晶片短缺的情況變得愈發嚴重。

大眾汽車還特別指出,中國內地汽車生產短缺晶片指的中國的整體汽車生產,而非大眾汽車。為了避免影響生產,大眾汽車目前正在密切監視局勢,並已開始與其總部和供應商進行協調,以採取適當的對策。

台灣與日本新車銷售似乎有許多相似之處,從今年下半季開始,豐田靠著熱門新車大軍攻勢,開始在銷售榜上發威。在日本最新 11 月銷售中,Nissan 跌落在 10 名外,僅靠 Honda Fit、Freed 守住兩席,其他 8 席全被 Toyota 拿下。

日本 11 月乘用車銷售 TOP 10

1.Toyota Yaris:19,921

2.Toyota Raize:10,627

3.Toyota Alphard:10,109

4.Toyota Harrier:9,897

5.Toyota Corolla:9,653

6. Toyota Roomy:9,112

7.Toyota Sienta:7,187

8.Honda Fit:7,161

9.Honda Freed:6,864

10.Toyota Voxy:6,860

身為小休旅又有 e-Power 油電,Kicks 正中日本人胃口。

雖說日本 11 月銷售榜是豐田天下,但其中可是有黑馬休旅在蠢蠢欲動,日規 Nissan 最新小改款 Kicks 才剛上市,最大亮點搭載日本人喜愛的 e-Power 油電系統,11 月繳出 4,292 輛,排名 15。因許多零件依賴泰國供應,由於疫情影響,導致延滯交車,待疫情狀況穩定後,小改款 Nissan Kicks 表現值得關注。

在前五名中,豐田新車大軍平均有破萬銷量表現。

第 1 席仍由 Toyota Yaris 拿下,並開始與第 2 席 Raize 拉開差距,Yaris 自從新一代今年發表後,攻勢勢如破竹,11 月已逼近 2 萬銷量大關。今年 8 月又追加 Yaris Cross 跨界版,在如今 SUV 正夯的市場來說相當吃香。

Fit、Yaris 同為掀背小車代表,銷售人氣不如 Yaris。

Fit、Freed 成為 Honda 鎮守銷售榜主力,在 11 月分別位居第 8、9 名,分別較 10 月各退步一名次。Fit 處境可是相當危險,身為 yaris 最大勁敵,今年同樣派出大改款新一代,但人氣開始有下滑趨勢。
