EV legislation sees more vehicles hit roads to battle cost of living

Published

on

In a pivotal step for environmental sustainability, the government announced fuel efficiency standards on Sunday, targeting cost-of-living benefits.

Despite lagging behind other countries, these standards aim to boost lower CO2 vehicle supply, especially EVs, with a goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 60% by 2029. Major car companies currently prioritise cleaner models for nations with strict CO2 targets, leaving Australia with less efficient options.

The proposed standards, effective from January 1, 2025, received broad support but faced mixed industry responses. While the EV lobby endorsed it, the dealer group expressed concerns about swift implementation.

The motor trades association sought a middle ground, emphasising EV technician training, and the car company representative body had reservations.

The delay in adoption is criticised, citing that 85% of global vehicle sales adhere to similar standards. It has been highlighted that there will no doubt be challenges for companies, especially with larger vehicles, foreseeing potential price increases. Despite hurdles, the author stresses the need to avoid becoming a dumping ground for inefficient vehicles.

FAA uncovers Boeing quality control issues

Published

on

The Federal Aviation Administration disclosed concerning findings from its 737 MAX production audit involving Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

The audit uncovered multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to adhere to manufacturing quality control standards.

The FAA highlighted significant “non-compliance issues” within Boeing’s manufacturing processes, including concerns related to parts handling, storage, and product control.

While a summary of the audit findings has been shared with the companies involved, the details have not been made public due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Following a mid-air emergency on January 5 involving a new Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where a door plug was lost at 16,000 feet, the FAA initiated the audit.

This incident prompted a temporary grounding of the MAX 9 and raised questions about the aircraft’s safety protocols.

New acquisition

Boeing, in response to these revelations, has been in discussions to acquire Spirit AeroSystems.

However, the company has not provided immediate comment regarding the audit findings.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the necessity for Boeing to implement comprehensive corrective measures to address what he termed as “systemic quality-control issues.”

Whitaker stated that Boeing must commit to substantial improvements, with clear milestones and expectations set forth by the FAA.
