VW Qualifies Experts for I.D. Family Production
Jun 3, 2018

Volkswagen will begin the education of the next generation this month with the Future Electronic Engineer Program (FEEP). As part of the program, 100 young engineers and specialists will be specially trained to produce the I.D. family vehicles.

The future specialists will take roles in the areas of planning, pilotiing, the e-mobility series and the pre-series center, as well as the electronics development. The first graduates of the three year programme will be employed in Zwickau, working on I.D. family models.

The education scheme was initiated by VW’s pilot facility in Wolfsburg, which is part of the logistics and planning department. Locations in China, Brazil, Argentina, the USA and Mexico will be taking part as well. The programme is supported by the “Volkswagen pro Ehrenamt” initiative (Ehrenamt is voluntary work in German) and local universities to educate young people in Germany, China and North and South America as of June.

Oliver Wessel, who coordinates product development before vehicles go into serial production, is aiming to start one of the largest training programs in the industry with FEEP. He added: “This year and next year, we will have to master about 80 starts of production. The vehicles have more digital intelligence on board than ever before. These are severe challenges. And the situation will become even more challenging with the MEB models. We need start of production specialists who can provide local support at our plants when the need arises and ensure a good start of production.”

According to other VW sources, the new graduates will play sort of a midwife role for the new I.D. vehicles, as Thomas Ulbrich explains: “Within three years, Volkswagen will be starting production of a total of 27 electric car models for four brands in three regions of the world. At the Zwickau plant alone, models of three Group brands will roll off the production lines. In future, our MEB plants throughout the world will need young engineers who are thoroughly conversant with the requirements for production of the new vehicle architecture and also have considerable practical experience.”

The participants of the programme generally undergo a complementary study course with practical orientation – particularly if they join as vehicle I.T. technicians or data logistics. At first candidates undergo a basic training, where they will work on current vehicle models, before candidates are then sent around the world to work with different VW teams on different projects.

I want to see how VW is doing selling EVs. I dont trust the EVs because of the low range they have and the difficulty of finding place to recharge them. Imagine an EV builded by the corporation that cheat everybody with their diesel engines. Will you believe them when they tell you that an EV will have 300 Km of autonomy?



I don´t.

Ford faces lawsuit over allegations of false mpg ratings
https://www.autonews.com/regulation-...se-mpg-ratings

Ford Motor Co. faces a federal lawsuit seeking class-action status over allegations the automaker inaccurately boosted 2018-19 Ford F-150 pickups' EPA mileage ratings.

The suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Detroit on behalf of plaintiffs by Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, a Chicago law firm, follows two others in consecutive months over the same issue in Ford Ranger trucks.

"We've not yet seen the complaint," a Ford spokesman said. "Typically we don't comment on pending litigation. However, based on the reports it appears this is similar to two other filings by the same law firm in the same court."

Plaintiffs in the suit over the F-150 claim EPA economy ratings printed on window stickers "were more than the fuel economy rating produced by a properly conducted applicable federal mileage test," according to the complaint.

The complaint accuses Ford of falsifying tests on the F-150 and Ranger. It also contends the automaker installed a "mileage 'cheat device'" that "continually misrepresents the vehicles' poor mileage to conceal it from vehicle owners."

VW and Ford seems to have more and more in common.

That must be proven.
