Fueled by the strong growth of its Recharge models last year, Volvo has announced that it will triple its electric vehicle production at the Ghent plant in Belgium by 2022.

The factory makes the XC40 Recharge, which is the Swedish brand’s first EV, and the plug-in hybrid variant of the XC40, and will also assemble a new zero-emission Volvo, which will be based on the CMA architecture, starting later this year.

“Our future is electric and customers clearly like what they see from our Recharge cars”, said the car firm’s chief of global industrial operations and quality, Javier Varela. “As we continue to electrify our lineup and boost our electric production capacity, Ghent is a real trailblazer for our global manufacturing network.”

In addition to the new EV that will enter production in Belgium in the coming months, Volvo will launch several other electric vehicles in the near future, as it wants half of its global sales to come from zero-emission models by 2025, with the rest being partially electrified.

Volvo sold 661,713 vehicles worldwide last year, a 6.2 percent drop over 2019 in the wake of the global pandemic, but it did record a 7.4 percent increase in the second half, with 391,751 units. The best-selling model was the XC60 with 191,696 units, followed by the XC40 and XC90, with 185,406 and 92,458 respectively.

Europe was the company’s biggest market, with 287,902 sales, 15.5 percent less than in 2019, while another 166,617 units were delivered in China and 110,129 in the United States, a 7.5 and 1.8 percent increase respectively.

McLaren is certainly no stranger to the world of sim racing, having their own esports program, and an F1 driver, Lando Norris, who actively participates in it. On that note, the company has announced an all-new sim racing competition in partnership with VELO, this time with a focus on entertainment personalities rather than trained drivers.

The VELO ESERIES will be a four-part event, and will feature DJ/singer songwriter/producer Craig David, as well as automotive YouTuber Supercar Blondie in the first part, called Series 1.

There’s no word as to the guests taking part in the other three rounds yet, and the game of choice and format of the competition have yet to be announced, but we do know that ex-Top Gear host Rory Reid will be one of the presenters.

Each series will be split into three episodes. The first will have the participants go through a boot camp at McLaren’s Woking headquarters. The second episode will give the celebrities their new found skills, which involves the two participants racing head-to-head. In the third episode, fans then get to participate in qualifiers to join the grid and race against the celebrities in a live-streamed “Beat Your Heroes” episode.

Series 1 launches this weekend on January 9th, with further episodes set to come over the coming months, concluding at the end of April. All of the content will be available on VELO’s social channels, including the livestream of each virtual race on their YouTube channel. The Craig David and Supercar Blondie race for series 1 will take place at 1 PM GMT on February 6th.

Skoda has officially announced that it will expand its SUV lineup with yet another model: the Kushaq.

Previewed by the 2020 Vision In Concept, its name is derived from the Sanskrit word of ‘kushak’, which means ‘king’ or ‘emperor’.

The Kushaq is aimed strictly at the Indian market and will sport a profile similar to both the show car presented last year and the Kamiq subcompact SUV, albeit with a less sloping roofline and thicker C pillars compared to the latter.

Based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0-IN platform, which was adapted for the Indian market, the Kushaq will celebrate its premiere in March this year before going on sale locally likely in the summer. The same architecture will be used on a new sedan, which is probably due in 2021 as well, and will be employed in two Volkswagen vehicles too.

“The new SUV combines signature Skoda Auto qualities, such as distinctive design, superior comfort and safety, as well as excellent value for money with the features demanded by sophisticated Indian customers”, the auto firm explained.

Skoda has refrained from saying anything else, but the Vision In Concept was powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine rated at 148 HP (150 PS / 110 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque. The mill drove the front wheels through a seven-speed DSG transmission, allowing it to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 8.7 seconds and reach a 121 mph (195 km/h) top speed, according to Skoda.
