頂級性能品牌 Porsche 自從發表 SUV 與轎跑等車型後,全球銷售表現突飛猛進,尤其是中國消費者最為捧場,外界也盛傳品牌將在中國設廠製造,不僅降低成本,還可以創造更多銷量,但針對這項傳聞,Porsche 的回答卻是「NO」。

為何 Porsche 不在中國設廠,執行長 Oliver Blume 公開回答。

針對在中國設廠一事,Porsche 執行長 Oliver Blume 回答,之所以 Porsche 不願意在中國設廠,主要原因就是「德國製造」的金字招牌對消費者的吸引力太大,對於中國消費者來說,這意味著高品質與頂尖工藝保證。

另外先前 Porsche 中國總裁也指出,不是所有嘗試中國製造的豪華汽車品牌都那麼成功,因為涉及到的生產品質問題是無法控制的,所以不在中國生產,是一個明智之舉。

德國製造代表的高品質與頂尖工藝,是吸引消費者的一大因素。

不過 Porsche 並非所有產線都設在德國,像是 Cayenne 的工廠就位於斯洛伐克,而 Cayman 及 Boxster 也曾有過芬蘭製造的經驗,同時執行長 Oliver Blume 也表示,若中國市場的占比繼續增高,不排除會試著在中國設廠。

同時執行長 Oliver Blume 強調,現階段品牌重心放在電動車方面,其中首款電動車 Taycan 推出後短短一年多,已經在全球銷售超過 2 萬輛,接下來還有旅行車版本的 Taycan Cross Turismo 以及純電版 Macan。

Lucid Motors is, according to new reports, edging closer to a deal to go public at a valuation of roughly $12 billion.

The merger between Lucid and Churchill Capital IV, the blank-check acquisition firm run by Michael Klein, would be the biggest in a series of deals with special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) made by other EV manufacturers like Nikola and Fisker.

Reuters reports that Churchill Capital IV has initiated talks with investors to raise more than $1 billion by selling shares in a private investment in public equity transaction to secure the deal with Lucid. These funds would be in addition to the $2 billion that Churchill Capital IV raised in its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in July 2020. Sources claim that Lucid and Klein have already agreed to key terms of the deal.

It is understood that a deal between Lucid and the SPAC could be announced as early as this month, so long as the fundraising round is successful.

The price of Churchill Capital IV stock is up more than 400 per cent this year and spiked by more than 30 per cent on the back of news that it is inching closer to a deal with Lucid. Yahoo Finance notes that shares were halted for volatility after this news broke.

Lucid was founded back in 2007 as Atieva by former Tesla executive Bernard Tse and entrepreneur Sam Weng. The company was initially funded by investors in China and Silicon Valley and in 2018, secured a $1 billion investment from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. Deliveries of the Lucid Air will begin in the coming months.

A winter storm in the United States and Mexico is wreaking havoc on many car manufacturing plants.

Ford has confirmed the storm forced it to halt production at the Ohio Assembly truck and van plant in Avon Lake as well as the Hermosillo Assembly Plant in Mexico that builds the Ford Fusion and various Lincoln models. The automaker has also canceled production at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, where the F-150 and Transit are made, until February 22 to reduce natural gas consumption.

Ford will run second shifts at its Chicago Assembly Plant, Dearborn Truck Plant, and Oakville Assembly Complex.

General Motors isn’t having things any easier. Speaking with The Detroit News, company spokesman Dan Flores confirmed GM has canceled first-shift production at its plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee that builds the Cadillac XT5, XT6 and GMC Acadia. It has also canceled first-shift production at its Fort Wayne, Indiana site, the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant and its large SUV plant in Arlington, Texas. Second-shift production was also canceled at the Fort Wayne and Arlington sites.

Meanwhile, Stellantis is also feeling the pinch and canceled the day shift at its Toledo Assembly Plant where the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator are built due to local travel advisories. Production of the second shift at the site resumed on Tuesday.

The winter storm has come at a particularly bad time for local car manufacturers that had to cut production at various plants across North America due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage.
