While there’s no doubt electric vehicles save on greenhouse gas emissions, one of the manufacturing dilemmas automotive companies face is that creating EVs is more energy-intensive than manufacturing traditional vehicles. EVs create anywhere from 15% to 68% more emissions in the manufacturing process, depending on the vehicle’s size and range, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.

EVs make up for the emissions disparity once they hit the road, of course. But Volkswagen Audi, however, has managed to get its Brussels, Belgium, E-tron electric SUV facility certified carbon neutral by the European Commission. Full-scale production began in September 2018.

Audi’s learned to not only minimize energy consumed but also used different energy production technologies to create the E-tron. The factory uses a 37,000-square-meter rooftop photovoltaic farm to reduce its electricity-grid consumption by 95%. High-efficiency heat exchangers control temperatures within the plant. Audi is also designing and assembling its own batteries from LG cells on site. The plant also buys carbon credit offsets and heats its facility with biogas.



“It’s an investment, but if you look at it from a five- or 10-year perspective, it becomes a viable solution,” says Audi CEO Bram Schot.

2019 ford edge for sale kirkland washingtonIn the almost 25 years since the original North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect, automotive manufacturers have moved to just-in-time systems that keep inventories low, reducing costs and increasing quality. But with 38% of imported parts and close to 70% of wiring harnesses for American assembly lines now being supplied by Mexico, a Mexican border closure could have meant a serious slowdown in new vehicle manufacturing.

"Any action that stops commerce at the border would be harmful to the U.S. economy, and in particular, the auto industry. Access to Mexico's market place and North American integration are critical to operations in the U.S.," Matt Blunt, president of the trade group, the American Automotive Policy Council, said earlier this week.

The U.S. imported $112 billion in autos and auto parts from Mexico in 2018 and exported $36 billion. A Mexican border shutdown would have meant $400 million in automotive goods per day would have been stalled. And unless it was a very brief shutdown, there could have been “devastating consequences” for U.S. parts and assembly plants, according to David Cole, director-emeritus of the Center for Automotive Research, or CAR.

It offers an 8-way driver’s seat for your comfort, as well as a 60/40 fold down bench for convenience. Hurry in to our Renton, Washington, showroom and check it out! 
2015 ford focus electric bev for sale kirkland washingtonLonger transit times to get cars to Europe and China is putting a strain on Tesla’s finances, as the electric vehicle manufacturer started shipping its Model 3 sedan. By March 21, 2019, it had almost 11,000 vehicles in transit. That’s compared with 1,900 cars in transit at the end of fourth quarter 2018.

With North American demand slowing and the $7,500 buyer tax credit halve at the end of 2018, production also fell almost 11% in the first quarter of 2019. The company did Tesla did manage to assemble just over a thousand more Model 3s in the first quarter versus fourth-quarter 2018.

CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the Model 3s experienced “many unexpected challenges” entering Europe through Zeebrugge, Belgium. Meanwhile, incorrectly printed labels slowed the trip to China through Shanghai. The Model 3s did make it to Norway though, and were that country’s biggest seller in March.

Whether the Tesla can compete with new European electric vehicles still remains to be seen however, and one analyst estimates in-transit vehicles cost the company $800 million in Q1 2019. The EV manufacturer has also recently laid off approximately half its U.S. car delivery workforce.

2015 ford focus electric bev for sale renton washingtonIn February and March of 2019, three of the country’s largest auto producers announced they were making significant additional investments in electrical vehicle factories in the U.S.

Fiat Chrysler Automotive will invest $4.5 billion in five of its existing Michigan factories, and plans to build a new assembly plant in Detroit to increase production capacity for its Jeep and Ram brands. FCA anticipates its expansion will create nearly 6,500 new jobs. Three of its facilities will produce plug-in hybrid Jeeps but will also be able to build fully electric models in the future.

GM is investing $300 million in its Orion Township plant in Michigan, where it already makes its battery-electric Bolt. GM plans a new model based on the Bolt architecture and industry sources expect a crossover vehicle approximately the same size and shape as the Jeep Compass or Subaru Crosstrek.

Ford will start building several new electric vehicle models at its Flat Rock Assembly plant in southeast Michigan and will import a new electric performance crossover model from Mexico.
