The range of professional car chemicals LAVR was replenished with an ultraviolet additive in the coolant to search for hidden leaks in the cooling system.

The new product helps detect leaks in radiators, the expansion tank, the pump, as well as in hoses and pipes that are not visually accessible.

The leak indicator is compatible with all types of coolant and is completely safe for any cooling system.

The agent can be in the system indefinitely and even used as an additive in antifreeze to detect leaks in the future.

The 310 ml package is designed for a cooling system with a capacity of up to 10 liters.

Suddenly, the fashion for fastbacks began in the global auto industry (these are sedans with a sloping rear, reminiscent of hatchbacks, but there is no lifting fifth door). This week, Hyundai introduced the  Ioniq 6 electric car in such a body , and Volkswagen showed a similar  ID. Aero . So Citroen also created a four-door with a dropdown roof, but at the same time endowed it with an off-road image. In terms of class and form, the novelty from Citroen is closer to Renault Arkana.

A black plastic body kit and muscular lines make this model look like a real crossover, but off-road ambitions are only a semblance here. The ground clearance is only 156 mm, and all-wheel drive is not provided.

The novelty is based on the same CMP (EMP1) platform as the  new generation Citroen C4 hatchback , which was supposed to enter the Russian market in 2022. And the Peugeot 408 has an EMP2 platform, like the older  Citroen C5 .

Dimensions Citroen C4 X - 4600 x 1800 x 1525 mm, wheelbase - 2670 mm.

Sedans are usually considered less practical than hatchbacks, but here the trunk volume is much larger than that of the related five-door C4 - 510 versus 380 liters. Affects a longer rear overhang.

The interior is designed in the same way as the hatchback, except that the MyCitroen Drive Plus multimedia system appeared here, which had previously been installed only on the older C5 X cross-liftback.

Another difference from the five-door is that the back of the rear sofa has a greater slope.

The range of engines includes 1.2 petrol turbo engines with a capacity of 102 and 131 hp, as well as a 1.5 turbodiesel producing 131 hp. An alternative to them is an electric power plant that develops 136 hp.

It is worth noting that versions with traditional engines are intended for Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and only an electric car will be sold in Western Europe. This modification is called e-C4 X.

She has a traction battery with a capacity of 50 kWh. The charge is enough for 360 km of the WLTP cycle.

Production of the Citroen C4 X will begin in the fall at a plant in Spain.

Uzbekistan resumed transportation of goods through the territory of Turkmenistan. The corresponding order came into force on June 1, gazeta.uz reports with reference to the Ministry of Transport of the Republic.

It is noted that the route through the Turkmen territory runs through the checkpoints "Alat" - on the border with Uzbekistan and "Serakhs" - with Iran. The column with trucks is formed from 8:00 am.

Along the way, special parking lots are provided for drivers to rest, refuel and maintain vehicles.

The source notes that in case of malfunctions or other problems while driving, drivers will be assisted by the Road Transport Agency of Turkmenistan.

Earlier, we reported that in order to effectively use international transport corridors, from June 1, transportation along the Sarakhs-Farap-Serakhs route was also resumed.

Crossing the border is subject to the following requirements:

drivers must submit the documents necessary for processing transit through the border of Turkmenistan for special sanitation;
vehicles are subject to sanitary cleaning;
when crossing the border, you must present the results of a PCR test for COVID-19 (at least 72 hours in advance) or a certificate of vaccination against coronavirus (at least 42 days from the date of the last vaccination);
take a rapid test for COVID-19 on duty.

 

A grain harvesting campaign began in Turkmenistan on June 3. The agrarians of Ahal, Lebap and Mary velayats were the first to start work. Harvesting is the result of the hard work of farmers. And in their difficult business, one cannot do without modern technology.

The KAMAZ vehicles produced in the Republic of Tatarstan of the Russian Federation serve as a great help for Turkmen peasants in organizing the harvest and transportation of grain crops.

They are widely used in cargo transportation and industrial construction enterprises. These giants are equipped with a dump or onboard platform of increased volume and come in both single versions and as part of road train.

For instance, a tipper platform of cars can carry out unloading on two or three sides.

The road train is equipped with a metal platform that unloads in both directions, and has folding sideboards with upper and lower hinges. When the platform is raised, the lower part of the board is opened automatically by 90 degrees, and the closing is done hydraulically after the platform is lowered.

The grain carrier is equipped with removable extension boards and an awning frame. For the transportation of grain crops, rubber seals are installed on the sides.

One of the modern technical achievements is the self-unloading of the trailer of this car, which can deliver a load weighing 14,5 tons to its destination, and its trailer – 10 tons.

Let us note that the use of vehicles with a trailer permits, in the presence of one driver, to save both time and fuel. In this case, labor productivity increases. During the grain-harvesting season or in the transportation of other goods, the use of such transport and its trailers is very economically advantageous.

Let us remind that in Turkmenistan a branch of “KAMAZ FTC Corp. LLP” represents the Russian company.

Winter is a test of durability for both the driver and his car. After all, the operation of the car in cold weather affects the work of the car in a certain way. And a timely technical examination will prevent all kinds of negative consequences. The experts of the Ýakyndar online store have given several useful recommendations to help prepare your car for winter.
Change tires

Despite the usual hot climate, frost and icy conditions are not rare in Turkmenistan in winter, so changing tires is a mandatory safety measure. Tires must be suitable for the season, otherwise this can lead not only to an accident, but also to rapid wear of the chassis elements. For example, wheel slip in snow affects the condition of the gearbox. It is also not recommended to exceed the tire dimension, which is indicated in the owner's manual, as this will change the car's handling, which is very dangerous in winter.
Checking the battery

One of the best-selling products in severe frosts is the battery. Most of the buyers come to auto parts stores for it, which is quite logical, because in the cold, the battery is under increased load. In order not to be in line for the battery, you should check and, if necessary, recharge the battery even before the onset of frost. Measure the electrolyte and charge levels.
Change of oil and technical fluids

If, according to your service book, the scheduled oil change is already close, then do it without waiting for the cold weather. It is worth noting that modern oils are suitable for all seasons, but experts recommend giving preference to oil with a viscosity that is best suited to the temperature conditions of your country.
Remember, a full tank is a guarantee that condensation does not form on the walls of the gas tank, and water does not get into the fuel system, which can lead to very serious problems. In addition, be sure to change your antifreeze before cold weather.

Wipers

If your wipers have served you for more than two years and do not fit snugly against the glass, then it is time to think about replacing them, and the presence of windshield washer fluid will save you more than once from trouble in winter slush conditions.
Brake system

The work of the braking system should be given special attention, because your safety on the road depends on it. Inspect the brake cylinder, adjust the brake regulator and, if necessary, replace the brake pads and discs.
You can make it easier to prepare your car for winter without leaving your home with the Ýakyndar online store. On the site you can find spare parts, batteries, auto chemicals, auto accessories, oils and filters, brake pads and much more.

Northvolt manufactured its first battery cell from 100% recycled nickel, manganese and cobalt. It has shown performance on par with its counterparts made from freshly mined metals.

Northvolt notes that all processing and manufacturing processes were carried out at the same facility at Northvolt Labs in Westeros, Sweden. This development marks a breakthrough for the battery industry and a milestone for Northvolt in its strategy to ensure a sustainable battery supply to support the decarbonization of society.
“The recycling process can recover up to 95% of the metals in a battery to a purity level comparable to fresh virgin material. We now need to increase our recycling capacity in anticipation of future battery volumes requiring recycling, ”said Emma Nehrenheim, director of environmental protection at Northvolt.

Recycled nickel, manganese and cobalt used in battery cells have been recovered from battery waste using a low-energy hydrometallurgical treatment, which involves using an aqueous solution to separate metals and separate them from impurities.
Northvolt is now looking to expand its recycling to industrial scale. To this end, it will build a separate facility for recycling batteries next to the future battery Gigafabrika in Skellefteå, Sweden. The design capacity of the factory is 125,000 tons of batteries per year, its construction will begin in the first quarter of 2022, and operation in 2023.

 

The recycling plant will receive materials from two sources: used batteries of electric vehicles and scrap from its own production of new batteries. Recycled materials from Revolt Ett will supply the neighboring Northvolt Ett battery plant with enough recycled metals to produce 30 GWh of batteries per year, half of the facility's total annual production.

Northvolt is a European manufacturer of battery cells and power systems. The company was founded in 2016 and has more than $ 27 billion in contracts to date with companies such as BMW, Fluence, Scania, Volkswagen, Volvo Cars and Polestar. More than 2,300 people work at Northvolt factories.

Turkmenistan became one of the three leaders of the main suppliers of gasoline to Uzbekistan. This was reported by the State Committee of Uzbekistan on Statistics.

The data is based on information for January-August 2021. During this period, Uzbekistan imported 281.6 million liters of motor gasoline in the amount of US $ 100 million.

The import of gasoline increased 3.2 times compared to the corresponding period of 2020, the department reports.

It is reported that Turkmenistan supplied 121 million liters of automotive fuel to Uzbekistan.

The main countries from which Uzbekistan imported motor gasoline:

  • Russia - 139 million liters
  • Turkmenistan - 121 million liters
  • Kazakhstan - 16 million liters
  • Iraq - 3.6 million liters 

Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan will jointly produce vehicles and electrical products. An agreement to open joint ventures was reached at the Turkmen-Uzbek economic forum held in Tashkent today. This is reported by Repost.uz with reference to the statement of the Minister of Investments and Foreign Trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan Sardor Umurzakov.

The joint venture “Uzavtosanoat” and “Turkmenistan-Motors” in the first year plans to produce up to 10 thousand units of agricultural machinery and trailers, and within 4-5 years it is planned to reach the level of up to 50 thousand units per year.

Long-standing traditions of cooperation have developed between Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Since 1996, the Turkmen-Uzbek intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation has been operating. In

September of this year, the sixteenth meeting of the commission was held, at which the expansion of cooperation and humanitarian ties in various spheres of the economy was discussed.

One of the key directions for the development of cooperation between the countries is the increase in trade turnover. For eight months, the volume of trade exceeded 418 million US dollars. The countries plan to bring this figure to 1 billion US dollars (in 2020 it amounted to 527 million US dollars).

In addition, the neighboring countries intend to develop industrial cooperation, transport and logistics partnerships and interregional cooperation.

Earlier, we reported that the President of Turkmenistan signed a Decree according to which the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection of the country will purchase machine-tractor units and trailers for the agro-industrial complex from the Uzbek company “Uzsanoatexport”.
