These actions are among several included in a list of draft bills given to the cabinet secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood. A Miliband-led government would reveal an emergency budget within weeks, which, in addition to reinstating the 50p rate of income tax, would remove the non-dom tax status and put fiscal responsibility into law.Businesses would likely be split on other changes too, which could include freezes on energy prices, a ban on zero-hour contracts and more apprenticeships. Each of these changes would be a polarising topic, with zero-hour contracts a particular point of conflict between Labour and the Tories.The changes would also strengthen Downing Street’s powers by giving the Prime Minister’s office more power over Whitehall and the Treasury.The Conservatives will be hoping that yesterday’s strong jobs figures will give them a boost in the run up to the election, reinforcing their narrative that the economy is on course and the country should not risk turning control over to Labour.

By Alexander Whiteman 04/12/2018 Customers need to play a bigger part in improving carbon neutrality on express delivery networks.However, while a green sheen may be popular with customers, they are not particularly willing to pay more for it, claimed one operator.Chief executive of DHL Express US Greg Hewitt told The Loadstar the company was on course to meet both short- and long-term targets for neutralising emissions, but one area was lagging.“By 2025, one of the short-term initiatives we want to have achieved is to have 50% of our customers leveraging the available green solutions,” he said. “But in some cases, these come at a premium and we are seeing that consumers are not willing to pay for these more expensive, though greener, transport options.”Even so, DHL’s Manhattan facility is on course to meeting the company’s 2050 carbon neutrality goals, with 100% of its final-mile operations already running under its green initiative, and leading its US operations when it comes to environmental sustainability.“The short-term goal is to have 75% of final-mile operations running under a green solution by 2025,” said Mr Hewitt. “Well, here in Manhattan we are setting an example for the others.”Asked by The Loadstar how DHL would cut carbon while using air freight, Mr Hewitt said the aim was to neutralise rather than remove emissions and the company has made efforts in local communities – in New York, DHL is ahead of its targets with 1m trees already planted across the city’s five boroughs.Area operations manager for NYC Juan Cucalon told The Loadstar the region had also launched walking delivery facilities.“This is another part of our green initiative to minimise our carbon footprint, with many parcels in the Manhattan area being delivered by foot,” he said. “Alongside this, we are working with local government to get authorisation for our quadcycle to be used on the city’s roads and cycle paths.”Already operating in The Netherlands, the quadcycle can carry up to 125kg of shipments, with most cycle couriers using it covering 50km a day.Mr Cucalon said the quadcycle was not allowed on New York city roads, only two-wheelers in designated bike lanes, but he hoped this would change soon.“Our vehicle make-up comprises only electric and hybrid trucks, 95 in total, and these are charged at our Manhattan facility,” he added. “While we get some energy from the grid, the bulk comes from our own micro-turbine, itself fuelled by eco-friendly natural gas.“The smaller vehicles cover 40 miles on a single charge and the larger ones 80, and with our delivery range being dense, on average drivers only cover 80 miles a day.”The efforts made in Manhattan are being mirrored in the new facility DHL is about to open in Garden City in the NY borough of Queens. This is already set up for electric vehicles and will be part of what Mr Cucalon described as the company’s “aggressive efforts” to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 Clockwise, the BMW M760Li xDrive, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63 S, the Infiniti Q60, the Genesis G80 Developing a new car takes years of designing and prototypes, and it’s such a big job it gets an internal name, usually a jumbled series of numbers and dashes reflecting the many stages it takes to birth a car. But once all the final details have been sussed, the company will christen the new vehicle a Corvette or Valiant and we’d all know what they were talking about.At least, that’s what the final step used to be.I long for those days. Instead, I’m stuck madly Googling the current differences between the BMW series one through seven, some X’s, a Z and the burgeoning “i”’s. Names used to be hinged on engine displacement, door count or chassis length; now all the letters and numbers go in a Yahtzee cup. Mercedes-Benz did a do-over a few years back, ditching a system we’d gotten used to in order to make it easier. It didn’t. They swapped GLK for GLC, and my inside-my-head memory trick (the word “gluck”) was useless. Infiniti did the same thing and I remember staring blankly as the product tech explained which combinations they’d shifted to make room for more combinations. “It’ll be so much easier,” she enthused. It isn’t. See More Videos RELATED TAGSNews We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. Automotive etymology round two: The story behind the names Trending in Canada advertisement The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever It’s not like I’m asking you to bring back the Gremlin. RELATED 18 of the most bizarre car names to ever existA colleague recently did a review of the Mini Countryman Cooper SE All4. They almost had to weld some more car onto it to fit the name. Some manufacturers get away with the laziest effort possible, like the Maserati Quattroporte; it may appear sexy, but calling a car “four doors” sounds like it was made by Sesame Street. Securing a name for a car is a time consuming, expensive proposition for car companies. Names have to be checked for existing trademarks, cross referenced into any language (including all possible slang) in markets it will be carried, and focus grouped to see if the masses will buy your Dodge Dolphin or your Honda Hobbit. In fact, it’s that increasingly difficult task of finding the perfect name that I believe has made manufacturers reluctant to venture into new fields. It’s why you see a Dart or an Impala or a Pacifica pass you on the road and wonder if you’ve done a bit of time travel.The problem with that, of course, is the badge of an old car slapped on a new one brings with it the detritus from the past incarnation. The latest Dodge Dart may have cute, but it’s nothing like the mean muscle cars of the early 1970s; the new Pacifica is a minivan, not the crossover it was over a decade ago before it was stifled out of production after just four model years. Bringing back either of those names means pounding out some negative connotations before presenting the new versions – or giving the new car an impossible level to live up to. Some things, of course, are never coming back. I’m quite sure we’ll never see a new version of the Cougar.You may never have owned a Gremlin, but you know what it was. Same with the Ramblers and the Cutlasses, the Pacers, the Omnis and the Fairlanes; even the Rabbits and the Beetles, before Volkswagen started calling cars things like Toureg and Tiguan, which sound more like Ikea bookcases than cars. That said, I’ll still take names I have to repeatedly spellcheck over a random string of numbers and letters.A group I follow on Facebook of new owners of a certain vehicle discuss how best to differentiate their rides. Apparently, the manufacturer doesn’t tag their rear ends enough to satisfy some customers who feel the need to declare to all in their wake that they spent top buck; some have had their own lettering made to adhere to their car. I have often contemplated removing logos from my cars, but never adding any.True aficionados and gearheads, of course, know the minute differences. You’ll know them instantly, when they discuss things like the 1964 ½ Mustang. I admire this knowledge; I also just call it a Mustang. The nationality of a car company needn’t factor into their naming game. If you only looked at the right side of many Hyundais, you’d swear you were in Arizona or New Mexico; the South Korean company claims other names from Latin to Greek sources. Hyundai is good at names.I want names. I know it’s time consuming and expensive, but I want names. And I don’t want recycled names, I want new ones. I always liked Chevrolet naming everything starting with a C, at least for a time; I find comfort in the Ford Escape – Explorer – Expedition – Excursion run. And you know a Subaru just from hearing the model name. The Merriam-Webster dictionary adds thousands of words every year, so there is little chance of running out.

Even during the 1960s, when car enthusiasts were comfortably accustomed to wild-looking concepts, the Ford Mustang Mach 1 caused a stir. The wild, low-slung fastback looked like a life-sized Hot Wheels car. Styling cues such as four round exhaust tips, enormous rear tires, and vents chiseled into the sides made it appreciably more muscular than the standard Mustang.The production Mach 1 launched in time for the 1969 model year with a considerably more toned-down design. Its roof was much taller, a concession likely made in the name of comfort, and it retained the standard Mustang’s round headlights in lieu of the concept’s rectangular units. It wasn’t watered-down, though. An aggressive stance accented by a hood scoop and a rear spoiler announced it meant business.Dodge Viper RT/10 Concept (1989)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Dodge Viper RT/10 Concept At first, it seemed like Porsche had made an odd decision by introducing the Boxster concept in Detroit rather than in Paris or in Geneva. In hindsight, America’s Motor City made perfect sense.The Boxster was not just another new model. In the early 1990s, Porsche found itself neck-deep in financial troubles that threatened its existence. As an entry-level roadster, the Boxster represented a last-ditch effort to boost sales and generate much-needed revenue. The brand couldn’t afford a flop.Officials chose Detroit over the European shows because they knew North America would be the Boxster’s biggest market. They were spot on, and the production model released in 1996 played a sizable role in saving Porsche from certain doom.Volkswagen Concept One (1994)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Volkswagen Concept One And now for something completely different. No one expected then Chrysler CEO, Wolfgang Bernhard, to wheel onto stage on something that looked like it came from a Mad Max film. Making this motorcycle even more outrageous was the fact it was powered by the Dodge Viper’s massive 500-hp, 8.3L V10 engine. From a motorcycle design standpoint, it was unique with four separate tires and hub-centric steering. Of course, this behemoth never made it to production, but it sure got people talking. Trending in Canada All eyes turned to Dodge as it unveiled the Viper RT/10 Concept at the 1989 edition of the Detroit Auto Show. The brain child of Bob Lutz, the Viper was a way to add much-needed excitement to the Dodge lineup, whose cars had become profitable (at last) but undeniably bland. Early on, Dodge officials referred to the Viper as a modern-day Shelby Cobra.The concept’s long hood hid a V10 engine designed with input from Lamborghini (which Chrysler owned at the time) starting with a V8 plucked from a Ram truck. Enthusiasts went berserk. Dodge presented the production model during the 1991 Indianapolis 500.Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray III (1992)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray III Chevrolet resurrected the Bel Air nameplate in 2002. It took the form of a two-door, four-seater convertible, a body style last offered by the third-generation Bel Air in the late 1950s.The concept surfed the retro car wave with a heritage-laced design characterized by fake vertical vents behind each headlight and thick chrome trim around the windshield. The treatment continued inside with a front bench seat, the subtle use of chrome trim, and a horizontal speedometer. It was a throw-back to the days when Elvis topped the charts.There was nothing retro under the hood. The drop-top used a then-new 3.5-litre five-cylinder engine turbocharged to 315 horsepower. There is little indication Chevrolet seriously considered building the Bel Air, but the five-cylinder later powered the considerably less sexy Colorado pickup truck and its GMC-badged twin.Dodge Razor (2002)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.22002 Dodge Razor concept The name Razor likely sounds familiar if you were a teen in the early 2000s. At the time, Razor scooters were the hottest thing on the block. The concept’s moniker isn’t a coincidence and it’s not a reference to Gilette products. Dodge teamed up with Razor to design a basic, driver-oriented two-seater sports car that would lure younger buyers into showrooms.The specifications sheet read like an enthusiast’s dream come true. It used a turbocharged 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission that sent about 250 horsepower to the rear wheels. The company advertised a sub-six-second sprint from zero-to-60-mph. Rumours pointed to a production model named Scooter but it never happened. Buy It! Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” The original Volkswagen Beetle was one of the best-selling cars of all time, selling more than 21 million versions, and though production ended in 2002, North America hadn’t seen a new one since 1979. But when VW surprised Detroit with the modern-retro Concept One in 1994, the crowd went wild. Based on the Polo chassis, the Concept One differed from the original Beetle in that it had a front-mounted, liquid-cooled engine and front-wheel drive.Worldwide reaction to the Concept One was so positive that Volkswagen had no choice but to resurrect the Beetle name and put it into production – with very few design changes – in 1997. Ford GT90 (1995)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Ford GT90 concept Seven hundred and twenty horsepower from a quad-turbocharged V12. These specs, which sound like they describe an extravagant Italian sports car, are still impressive today. Imagine how awe-inspiring they were in 1995, when Ford unveiled the GT90 concept. Show-goers admired it with near-superstitious awe.Shortly after the 1995 Detroit show, insiders suggested the wedge-shaped GT90 would spawn a production model before the end of the 1990s. Ford again wanted to beat Ferrari at its own game, but the coupe never made it past the concept stage … at least, not as a full-size, fully-functional car. Maisto sold a 1/18-scale GT90 as a consolation prize.Nissan Z (1999)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Nissan Z concept SUVs became wildly popular during the 1990s. Oldsmobile explored how to expand its presence in the segment with the 1999 Recon concept, a highly-futuristic SUV designed entirely with computers. It broke all ties with the company’s then-current design language, and yet the interior looked even further into the future than the body.The driver sat in front of a digital instrument cluster that was fully configurable, a real novelty at the time, especially from a brand not known for high-end or tech-intensive products. The Recon couldn’t have rolled off an assembly line as-is, and Oldsmobile got the bullet before designers got the chance to tone the concept down.Chevrolet Bel Air (2002)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Chevrolet Bel Air Concept Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 The new Subaru Legacy concept vehicle is under wraps during the press preview for the Detroit International Auto Show on January 11, 2009 in Detroit, Michigan.

We’ve recently been treated to a few high-end supercars, such as the Ford GT, but the creativity auto manufacturers put into designing concepts has progressively waned. When was the last time a concept car at the Motor City show truly surprised you?It wasn’t always that way. Detroit used to be where companies from all over the automotive spectrum unabashedly flaunted their design department’s wildest ideas. Of all the exciting concepts that have been unwrapped on the floor of Cobo Hall, here are a few of the more memorable ones – including some that went on to production.Ford Mustang Mach 1 (1966) We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. The turn of the millennium was on everyone’s mind in 1999. When they weren’t worrying about the harrowing effects of the looming Y2K bug, product planners in the automotive industry schemed ways to get buyers’ attention by designing cars “for the year 2000.” The Z concept unveiled in 1999 showed Nissan’s vision of a 21st century Z car.Nissan introduced the 350Z in 2002. Its overall silhouette channeled the 1999 concept but its design had evolved considerably. The headlights became rectangular and vertical while the rear lights sat higher and stretched well into the quarter panels. No one predicted the coupe segment’s sharp decline, and in 1999 no one could imagine Nissan’s next Z concept would take the form of an SUV.Oldsmobile Recon (1999)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Oldsmobile Recon concept With the Sting Ray III, Chevrolet tried answering the question of what a California Corvette would look like. The answer, it turns out, was “unlike any ‘Vette before it.” It was unusually high tech thanks to features like four-wheel steering and an adaptive suspension, and it relied on carbon fiber to keep weight in check.Designers originally envisioned a roadster powered by a high-output V6, but the configuration was deemed too contentious. The car made its debut in Detroit with a 300-horsepower V8 that shifted through a rear-mounted gearbox, which helped weight distribution.Chevrolet’s archives department indicates the Sting Ray III was briefly considered for production but it would have been far too expensive to build. The brand finally introduced the fifth-generation Corvette in 1996, and it shared no styling cues with the 1992 concept.Porsche Boxster (1993)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Porsche Boxster concept Dodge Tomahawk (2003)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Wolfgang Bernhard, then CEO of Chrysler Group, rode the Viper-powered Dodge Tomahawk Concept bike on stage at the 2003 North American International Auto Show. ‹ Previous Next ›
ALG has released its winners in the 2020 Canadian Residual Value Awards, naming Toyota and Porsche among the top brands in the country when it comes to their resale.The Canadian Residual Value Awards evaluate vehicles for the 2020 model year, and the winner is chosen based on the vehicle most likely to retain a high percentage of its MSRP after four years, for mainstream vehicles; or after three years for premium vehicles.Twenty-seven different vehicle segments are evaluated. “Residual values are important to both automotive brands and consumers alike,” said ALG senior manager of industry solutions, Michelle MacDonald.“For automotive brands, a strong residual value is a barometer of a brand’s overall health and appeal in the marketplace,” he explained. “For consumers, since a vehicle’s depreciation is the single costliest aspect of car ownership, a strong residual value is an indicator of how well that vehicle will hold its value for future resale consideration.” RELATED The most – and least – reliable brands for 2019, ranked by Consumer Reports These are J.D. Power’s best – and worst – automotive brands for 2019 For premium vehicles, Porsche was the overall winner, taking the award for Best Premium Sports Car for the 911, as well as Best Premium Compact Utility for the Macan.Subaru also came away with honours, earning the top prizes for the Impreza in Best Compact Car; WRX/WRX STI in Best Sports Car; and Crosstrek in Best Subcompact Utility.Toyota really took the cake, however, with wins in almost every category. It was Toyota RAV4 for Compact Utility; Toyota Tundra for Full-Size Pickup; Toyota Sequoia for Full-Size Utility; Toyota Tacoma for Midsize Pickup; Toyota Highlander for Midsize Utility Third-Row Seating; and Toyota 4Runner for Off-Road Utility.
