A new British consortium aims to design and develop a global-use, world-leading fully electric powertrain with funding from the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC). Led by GKN Automotive, a tier one electric vehicle driveline supplier, has joined up with Drive System Design and the University of Nottingham as part of the £8m project - doubled by the APC’s match-funding scheme. The project, called ACeDrive, intends to produce “the world’s lightest and most efficient electric vehicle powertrain suitable for the volume market”. GKN claims it will adopt “groundbreaking concepts in cooling and system integration” to reduce the size and cost by 25%, the weight by 20% and efficiency by 10% compared with current equivalent EV systems. The system will combine the electric motor, transmission and inverter in one compact unit. GKN claims development is currently in the simulation analysis phase, with the final design to be commenced later this year and prototype testing in 2020. The project is based in GKN’s Innovation Centre in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Gordon Day, General Manager at GKN Hybrid Power Limited, said "we are developing a truly advanced eDrive system, more compact and cost-effective than other technologies on the horizon. Our ambition is to help the UK take the lead in electric powertrain design and manufacturing capability”.

Question is, without going back through endless responses and countless news items, what exactly have I missed in this time? Apart from Kier still not being a recovery buy - and never will be IMHO, and Halma, Evraz powering through to new highs, Boris leading the pack for the vacant PM position, the Iranians 'mining' for oil and Trump calling Khan names-again (pot, kettle etc), it seems not much has changed.

The worst feature of the South of England is the quality of the air, although I must say it is much improved from the time I lived there in the 70s. These days, I have to visit London a few times each year and on stepping out of Euston Station I'm met with what I can only describe as a pungent and putrid atmosphere. It's as if the whole population of London, all 12 million people, and the animal population therein, had broken wind simultaneously. Not pleasant.
