Volvo electric and hybrid by 2019

Volvo’s decision to electrify all its future powertrains for cars and suvs could mean more business for Canada-based supplier Magna International, which is eager to help the automaker reach its goal.

Magna, which ranks third on the Automotive News Top 100 Global Suppliers List, has been supplying the automaker with an electrified rear axle drive system (eRAD) for its Volvo V60 and S60 plug-in hybrid models since 2012.

In April, Magna’s powertrain manufacturing division in Ilz, Austria, received the Volvo Cars Quality Excellence Award for its work on the drive system.

“Volvo’s announcement this week — that every car it launches from 2019 will have an electric motor — presents an opportunity to Magna, and we stand ready to help them achieve this goal with our expertise in electrified powertrain components and system integration,” Magna spokesman Scott Worden said

Planning a Road Trip around Toronto during Holidays

Tags : 

toronot landmarksToronto is a very interesting place to travel during holidays. It is the biggest city in Canada, and not to mention that it is also the most cosmopolitan. One can take advantage of certain seasons and plan on using mobile auto detailing services before hitting the road. Holidays occur in various seasons and each of these seasons has a climate that affects road conditions in very specific ways.

Summer vacations are common after-school long breaks that families can take advantage with the active participation of students. It is a perfect time of the year to hit the road for golfing or visiting the Lake Simcoe Resort Area. Roads around summer are relatively dry due to the average 20 to 25 degree Celsius, providing good traction.

Spring holidays in Toronto are also appealing. It is a good time of the year to either visit popular bars during St. Patrick’s Day. It is important to remember that spring is a marginal transition from the cold winter season. A winterized car may function well on the road during the early phase of spring season, where the remaining residue of winter’s mist could still cause the same effects at a marginal scale. Spring period is commonly a perfect time of the year to make changes in a car’s detailing. Among these notable modifications are the tires, especially if they are not the all-season types. Realignment of the tires is also one of the things that owners tend to overlook. It can perfectly ruin spring getaways, especially when deciding to visit remote neighboring ecological areas like Scarborough Bluffs.

Winter holidays are always special because of Christmas. Even though December is not yet very near, people in Toronto are already on the great mood to visit ski resorts. One must remember that the winter season is quite dangerous for people to travel a long distance down the road. Visiting famous landmarks within Toronto city center is recommendable, especially the CN Tower, Ontario Science Center and Casa Loma. If one should visit remote locations like Toronto Island, it is crucial to make mechanical adjustments for winterization services.

Snow Tires vs. All Season tires

Tags : 

winterWith the advent of all-season tires, thanks to Goodyear’s Tiempo back in 1977, everyone was relieved that they didn’t have to switch tires with the changing seasons. Eventually, other tire companies followed suit and nearly all vehicles were fitted with all-season tires straight from the factory. Even the replacement tires that came with the new vehicles are all-season.
