Mercedes-Benz plans to drive in only BS VI diesel vehicles in India 18.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
German luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz said on Monday that all its diesel models in India from now on will have engines which comply with BS VI emission norms. The company, which launched Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe starting at Rs 2.55 crore, has already launched one BSVI compliant diesel model S-Class (S 350 d) in the country in February this year. "Going forward, all the diesel engines we plan to launch in the country will be BS VI compliant only. The government deadline of April 2020 does not pose any challenge for us as we are way ahead of that time line," Mercedes-Benz India VP Sales and Marketing Michael Jopp told PTI. The company also plans to upgrade its petrol models to BS VI going ahead, he added. "From volume perspective we consider diesel more important as 75 per cent of our current sales come from diesel models. That is why we are focussing on diesel engines first," Jopp said. When asked if the technology upgrade would also lead to increase in product prices, Jopp said: "There will be price ...

Indian economy like a car with 3 tyres punctured, mocks P Chidambaram 4.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Indian economy has become like a car whose three tyres are punctured, former finance minister P Chidambaram said on Sunday in Thane as he attacked the Narendra Modi government on rising petroleum prices and other issues. "Private investment, private consumption, exports and government expenditures are four growth engines of an economy. It's like four tyres of a car. If one or two tyres are punctured, it will slow down but in our case, three tyres are punctured," the senior Congress leader said at an event organised by the Maharashtra Congress unit. Government expenditure is on only in healthcare and in some other amenities, he said. "To keep this expenditure going on, the government has continued taxing petrol, diesel and even LPG. It is squeezing money from people in such taxes and spending some from it on public amenities," Chidambaram said. Did you see any investment in the power sector recently, he questioned. "For example, out of the 10 major companies that went into insolvency, five were steel ...

Hamburg leads charge with Germany's first diesel ban 31.5.2018 General News
Hamburg today became the first German city to ban older diesel vehicles from some roads, a measure that is largely symbolic but disputed by carmakers and the government. A 1,600-metre (one-mile) stretch of highway and a 580-metre section of another major road are now closed to diesels which do not meet "Euro-6" emissions standards, with signs to indicate that the restriction is now in force. The first ban came after the Federal Administrative Court found in February that such restrictions were a legitimate way for local authorities to bring air pollution below European Union health thresholds. But Hamburg's partial ban is being met with skepticism in Germany. "It's symbolic politics. The authorities are blocking only two roads, so only 1,787 residents out of the 1.8 million inhabitants of Hamburg are affected by these restrictions," wrote Spiegel in a commentary online. The move was simply aimed at showing the EU that authorities were taking action to bring down pollutant levels, the .
