Mitch Evans claims first win of the season for Jaguar TCS Racing in first-ever ABB FIA Formula E World Championship race in Brazil
Mitch Evans (Jaguar TCS Racing) led home a one-two-three for the Jaguar powertrain, with Nick Cassidy (Envision Racing) and Sam Bird (Jaguar TCS Racing) crossing the line together. The trio finished just half a second apart to close out an enthralling inaugural Julius Baer São Paulo E-Prix in front of more than 23,000 passionate motorsport fans. It was a flat out push to the finish at the rapid 11-turn São Paulo Street Circuit, with Evans managing to navigate his way through constant position changes through the pack to take the chequered flag first from third on the grid. The New Zealander took the initiative and the race lead from his compatriot Cassidy as the race headed into laps added-on following multiple safety car incidents. His move on Lap 32 proved to be decisive, with neither Cassidy nor Evans' teammate Bird able to undo the leader's defensive driving - despite Bird having collected a couple of extra percentage points of usable energy during his climb from 10th on the grid at the start. Cassidy had led the race more than once but will be more than satisfied to score three consecutive podiums for the first time in his Formula E career. Defending world champion Stoffel Vandoorne (DS PENSKE) started in Julius Baer Pole Position and led the way early on, fending off António Félix da Costa (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team) during the first round of ATTACK MODE activations until the race reached its half-way stage. The lead was almost impossible to track on Lap 14 with three or four changes over that tour alone and Cassidy coming out on top. But Vandoorne would end up sixth after struggling for usable energy from his time at the front. Da Costa had slipped to fourth and briefly made designs on the podium but wound up settling just outside the podium positions. Jean-Éric Vergne (DS PENSKE) headed his teammate home for an eventual fifth spot. Standings leader Pascal Wehrlein (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team) had it all to do from 18th on the grid and managed to slice his way through the pack to 7th position at the chequered flag with Jake Hughes (NEOM McLaren Formula E Team) finishing eighth, just ahead of teammate René Rast in ninth and with Sébastien Buemi (Envision Racing) rounding out the top 10. Meanwhile, Jake Dennis(Avalanche Andretti Formula E) suffered another non-finish after contact from Dan Ticktum's NIO 333 saw his 99X Electric shoved into Wehrlein's Porsche. Wehrlein maintains his Drivers' World Championship lead on 86pts from Dennis with 62pts, while Cassidy moves into third just a point behind the Brit. TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team heads Envision Racing 144pts to 103pts with Jaguar TCS Racing third on 83pts. Mitch Evans, No. 9, Jaguar TCS Racing, said: “This has come at the perfect time. We had a tough start but the car has been quick so to finally get the victory and some points is incredible. A Jaguar 1-2-3. Nick pushed me all the way - we pushed each other - both teams executed brilliantly. This is down to a lot of hard work, there is a lot of graft that goes in with simulations, to try and put these races together regarding strategy is not easy. I wouldn't have wanted it much closer than that. “We obviously thought about track position and where you want to be at certain phases in the races. I had a good energy advantage from quite early on, but it was just about trying to find the right time to use the energy advantage. I thought I maybe went a bit too early, once Nick got behind me he was able to accumulate some energy and he was able to stick to my toe, but we got the victory so we obviously managed to do the right job. Super happy to get some big points on the board.” Nick Cassidy, No. 37, Envision Racing, said: “I am super happy with the podium today, with a race like that you can't not be happy right - that was Formula E at its best, so much fun in the car, I hope it was a good watch. Very strategic, Sam did a great job as well. 1-2-3 Jaguar, pretty cool. I knew [how much energy Sam Bird had], that was a lot of the reason for getting Mitch to go on. I knew to get the win would be pretty difficult and that I would have to do something special on Mitch to turn that round, but I was at a high risk of finishing third. “We all want to win, I tried my best to win. But that's the way the cookie crumbled, and I think we got one of the best outcomes.” Sam Bird, No. 10, Jaguar TCS Racing, said: “Amazing day for Jaguar TCS Racing and Jaguar globally as a group to get the podium locked out. I am not sure whether that has been done before, so a massive hats off to everyone here and back at the base, it’s a brilliant result. I am super stoked for the team and for myself. I am a little bit disappointed because I rocked up to the back of the lead with 2% more energy, but I had repercussions of India going on in my head, so I thought to settle in and not do anything silly and just bring home the points, I think I got fastest lap as well. It is good points for the team, we roll onto Berlin.” Germany is the next stop in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship for Rounds 7 and 8 and the 2023 SABIC Berlin E-Prix double-header on Saturday, 22 April and Sunday, 23 April.

Clientron Corp. Obtained DEKRA ISO 26262 Automotive Functional Safety Certificate
TAIPEI, March 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DEKRA issued ISO 26262: 2018 ASIL-D Automotive Functional Safety Certificate to Clientron Corp., a leading automotive electronics manufacturer striving to enlarge their presence in the smart automotive supply chain worldwide. Clientron Corp. Obtained DEKRA ISO 26262 Automotive Functional Safety Certificate ISO 26262 is a globally recognized automotive functional safety standard, regarded as one of the basic requirements for suppliers to enter the automotive supply chain. The standard applies to the complete lifecycle of electrical and electronic components in the automotive industry, including initial safety concept, system development, software and hardware development, production, operation, maintenance, and scrapping. ASIL (Automotive Safety Integration Level) is a risk classification system defined by the ISO 26262 standard. ASIL has four categories - ASIL A to ASIL D, and ASIL D indicates the most critical level of development process. Clientron Corp. has focused their efforts on the establishment of the functional safety system for their intelligent cockpit. It involves multiple development phases, namely functional safety management, development at the concept stage and system stage, software/hardware development, process safety, and product launch. Thanks to the professional consulting service and support from the iST's technological safety advisor team, Clientron Corp. managed to receive ISO 26262 functional safety certificate at the highest level of ASIL-D from DEKRA. This demonstrates that they can effectively control the risks and functional safety identified in the development process and deliver the product's safety and reliability. Therefore, their smart cockpit is well served with a safe, intelligent driving environment, which strongly positions them in the international electric vehicle market. At the certificate awarding ceremony, Ms. Kelly Wu, General Manager of Clientron Corp., received the ISO 26262 Certificate from Mr. Aaron Lee, Managing Director of DEKRA Taiwan. Mr. Daniel Lee, General Manager of DEKRA Taiwan Product Testing Operations and Mr. Kevin Huang, Manager of Global Functional Safety/Cyber-Security, who is responsible for this certification project, Mr. Tai-You Tsou, Functional Safety Assessor, and Mr. William Cheng, Senior Vice President of Integrated Service Technology, leading the assistance and consulting team for this project, attended this ceremony. Ms. Kelly Wu, General Manager of Clientron Corp., stated that the successful ISO 26262 certification at the highest level ASIL-D represents Clientron Corp.' remarkable capability in working out safe, reliable, connected V2X solutions for smart cockpits by working to the development process and management system of international automakers. Clientron Corp. has set electronics, battery, electrical engineering, and electrical control at its core and integrated the EV automotive electronics system. With this solution, everything is interconnected, from autonomous driving information system and dashboard of the smart cockpit to BCM (body control module), VCU (vehicle control unit), AVAS (acoustic vehicle alerting system), and vision assistance system. The certification also expands collaboration opportunities with European and American automakers and tier-1 suppliers. Clientron Corp. thus showcases their determination to gain a foothold in the smart automotive supply chain and break into the global EV market. Mr. Gerhard Rieger, Senior Vice President of DEKRA Global Functional Safety, emphasized that safety has always been key to vehicle development. Riding the trends of intelligentization, automation, and connectivity, vehicles will be mounted with more highly functional electronic products, but these electronic systems with high complexity entail considerable risks to safety. This is where ISO 26262 process certification comes into play to ensure compliance with the required functional safety level when developing vehicles. Therefore, early implementation of ISO 26262 process certification at the design and development phases significantly reduces failure risks while saving time, resources, and cost of development. Mr. Aaron Lee, Managing Director of DEKRA Taiwan, expressed that the automotive industry is rapidly edging towards electrification, autonomous driving, and connectivity, and in turn drives the need for more advanced electronics and safety assistance systems in future cars. Accordingly, safety is of critical priority when it comes to design and development. Manufacturers can seek help from DEKRA's team of experts to implement ISO 26262, ISO/SAE 21434, Automotive SPICE and Cyber-Security processes. Besides, DEKRA provides integrated service solutions, including training, gap analysis, testing, and certification, for manufacturers to efficiently pass various international standards and process certifications, securing their entry ticket to the automotive supply chain. Mr. William Cheng, Senior Vice President of iST, who leads the consulting team for this project, added that DEKRA is the world's leading company in automotive electronics testing and certification, and iST has a superior advantage in the field of automotive electronics reliability verification and consulting. In 2020, iST started to cooperate with DEKRA to provide integrated solutions for automotive electronic functional safety through the partnership. We provide professional consulting services to Clientron from ISO 26262 specifications, covering process, production, development tool, and SEooC (Safety Element out of Context) as well as subsequent audit and certification applications, providing an integrated solution for automotive electronic functional safety.

FORMULA E HAT-TRICK IN BRAZIL - HOW TO WATCH THE 2023 JULIUS BAER SÃO PAULO E-PRIX
The 2023 Julius Baer São Paulo E-Prix this Saturday will complete a hat-trick of new host cities in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship so far this season. The race in Brazil follows back-to-back Formula E debuts in Cape Town and Hyderabad and is set to be another highlight of Season 9 and the beginning of the GEN3 era in the championship. Hometown hero and former champion Lucas di Grassi (Mahindra Racing) hails from the city and will be joined by compatriot Sérgio Sette Câmara (NIO 333 Racing) as the 22 drivers prepare to race on the 2.96km 11-turn circuit at the Sambadrome, which a month ago featured the exotic floats and dancers of the São Paulo Carnival. “I can’t wait to race in São Paulo," said the first Formula E 100-race ‘centurion’ and Season 3 champion, Lucas di Grassi. "I’m from São Paulo, I was born just a few minutes away [from the track] and grew up there. It’s going to be amazing racing in front of my home fans. It's been a dream since the first Formula E race. It has been close a couple of times and hasn’t quite happened but after 10 years of hard work and persistence it’s finally happening in Season 9 and for the start of GEN3. It’s very emotional for me to be racing there. "The circuit at the Sambadrome looks like it will be amazing and the thousands of people that like to join carnival and spend some time in Brazil will be able to stay for the race, Zero Summit and the big music festival happening all on the same weekend. I’m sure the passionate Brazilians will fill up the grandstands." ABT CUPRA’s Robin Frijns will return to racing this Saturday in Brazil. Having been out with injury since the first race of Season 9, the Dutchman will be back behind the wheel aiming to score the team’s first championship points in GEN3. The season so far: The inaugural Cape Town E-Prix entertained another sold-out crowd on Formula E's maiden trip to sub-Saharan Africa, with Table Mountain providing a backdrop unmatched in elite motorsport. One of the most memorable, and certainly the fastest E-Prix in Formula E history followed. The ultra-high speed circuit proved to be a real leveller with veterans Sébastien Buemi (Envision Racing), Sam Bird (Jaguar TCS Racing) and Edoardo Mortara (Maserati MSG Racing) caught out by the challenge ahead of the race and rookie Sacha Fenestraz(Nissan Formula E Team) clocking the series' all-time fastest lap to seal his first Julius Baer Pole Position. The race was one to remember, as two former teammates with three titles between them in António Félix da Costa (TAG Heuer Porsche Formua E Team) and Jean-Éric Vergne (DS PENSKE) fought to the last for the top step of the podium. Da Costa drove a storming race from 11th on the grid to his first win for the team after producing carbon copies of one of the most outrageous overtaking moves you'll ever see for the lead. With a quarter of the season complete heading to Cape Town, Pascal Wehrlein (TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team) led the way in both the Drivers' World Championship while the Stuttgart manufacturer had set about dominating the Teams'. A win-double for the German in Diriyah followed a podium in the season-opener in Mexico City. Hyderabad proved a test for the Stuttgart manufacturer, with a technical issue throwing the German's weekend into jeopardy. They found the cause of the shunt, though, and Wehrlein recovered to fourth. In Cape Town, Wehrlein escaped relatively unscathed once again with a healthy 18-points standings lead intact after he got it wrong on the brakes into Turn 9 and wiped Sébastien Buemi and himself out on Lap 1. It was "clearly my fault," said Wehrlein. As dominant as he and Porsche have been, this is Formula E and he will think himself lucky those around him in the standings also tripped up - not least Mexico City winner Jake Dennis in the Porsche-powered Avalanche Andretti, who managed just 13th. Porsche and Wehrlein may be leading the way in the standings but that's not the full story. Sam Bird and Jean-Éric Vergne have led only a handful of laps fewer than the German and second-placed Jake Dennis. Bad luck and that Hyderabad clash between the Jaguars has stunted the team’s points tally despite strong pace and progress as the development race continues at lightning pace. You need only look at Envision Racing sitting second in the Teams' table with their I-TYPE 6 to get an idea of Jaguar's potential. Consecutive non-scores are never a good thing, but the season is young with 11 rounds to come starting with São Paulo this Saturday there's plenty of time for change. Vergne looks to be the driver on form at the moment, and Wehrlein will have his eyes trained in his mirrors as Formula E's only double champ followed a vintage defensive drive to take top spot in Hyderabad with second in Cape Town. The Frenchman will be looking to capitalise with a hat-trick of silverware in São Paulo. GEN3's flying start: For eight races, the polesitter has failed to convert the race win, with the GEN3 car throwing up plenty of opportunities for overtaking - da Costa coming from 11th on the grid in Cape Town and Wehrlein from ninth in Diriyah two prime example. Only one prior race in Formula E history has been won from lower (di Grassi in Mexico 2017, from 15th). Cape Town also proved to be the closest race finish in 22 rounds at just 0.281 seconds. Brazil and São Paulo - the home of motor racing legends: The legendary Ayrton Senna: triple Formula 1 World Drivers' Champion and twice a winner at Interlagos, on home soil in São Paulo; Emerson Fittipaldi - another F1 title winner hailing from the city and a two-time champion no less; and Rio de Janeiro-born Nelson Piquet Sr., another triple champ set the tone for motorsport's storied heritage. The country has a passion unmatched for motorsport, with generations growing up watching their heroes and idols representing their country on the world stage. "When I was a kid, I was watching Formula 1," said NIO 333 Racing’s Sérgio Sette Câmara. "The culture is very big in Brazil and the reason for that is it goes from grandparents to parents and into the children. "I remember watching races with my grandpa, my father and my uncle and they were all influenced a lot by Emerson Fittipaldi; Nelson Piquet (Sr.) too. Of course, they pass that on to us kids and we really learned to appreciate our idols. "The driver that was really at the top when I was a kid was Felipe Massa because he was at Ferrari, winning races. You saw that and thought: ‘wow, he's driving the famous red car and winning races; that's what I can be - that's doable’. I really think he was the one that inspired me, alongside Rubens (Barrichello) because they were winning races and at the top level of motorsport when I was a kid. "I was there at Interlagos at the last corner in 2008 where he lost out on the F1 title to Lewis (Hamilton) at the end. It took 10 minutes for the whole crowd to realise what had happened." In Formula E, there are Brazilian heroes that have pioneered electric motor racing at the top level, bringing the country's motorsport heritage to a new, ever-passionate audience. Season 3 champion Lucas di Grassi is a proud São Paulo native. Nelson Piquet Jr. followed in his father's footsteps to win a title at the pinnacle of the sport as he sealed the inaugural Formula E championship in 2014/15. Massa has been part of the series, too, in his time with Venturi - as has the great Ayrton Senna's nephew Bruno and Felipe Nasr. Sette Câmara and di Grassi fly the flag this weekend, with an expectant home support to cheer them along.

Nissan reveals prototype sedan for contemporary lifestyles
TOKYO, March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. announced today a prototype sedan equipped with approximately 30 devices born from free ideas and ingenuity. The Contemporary Lifestyle Vehicle, created through a bricolage approach, is to be on display at the Nissan Global Headquarters Gallery here from March 24 to April 2 and also viewable on Nissan's YouTube channel starting today. https://youtu.be/9D4AX81co-E The prototype is based on the iconic Skyline and packed with devices that can help users comfortably eat, sleep, and play in the car. To create this usability without compromising the vehicle's functionality and stylish design, Nissan introduced devices through a process of trial and error, fusing them with AI to achieve surprising functions not imaginable from the outside appearance. In this way the vehicle enables daily experience that suits modern lifestyles. By adopting a bricolage approach instead of a conventional engineering one, the team was able to set goals and reach them optimally and efficiently, thereby creating something beyond expectations. Tetsuro Ueda, an expert leader in Nissan's Mobility & AI Laboratory, said: "Innovation to enrich people's lives is our corporate purpose. But, innovation is not limited to unprecedented advanced technologies such as electrification and intelligence. Innovation is also about finding new possibilities in what already exists and finding ways to make experience more pleasant. Bricolage is well-suited for this kind of innovation. Above all, it was a lot of fun for us to prototype. This Contemporary Lifestyle Vehicle is a modern interpretation of the idea of eating, sleeping and playing in a sedan. We believe that innovation from bricolage is also effective in addressing sustainability issues. The Contemporary Lifestyle Vehicle is just the first step in demonstrating the impact of bricolage on manufacturing. We will continue to explore innovations and deliver excitement."

Chevrolet Officially Launches New Trendsetting Trax Crossover in South Korea
SEOUL - General Motors' global Chevrolet brand today announced the official launch and start of presales of the Trax Crossover in Korea. The Trax Crossover is Chevrolet's entry model in GM's global product portfolio. It offers a sophisticated design while catering to consumers' diverse lifestyles through its versatility and maximized space utilization. "We are paving the way for GM's new target segment, crossovers, with the Chevrolet Trax Crossover's launch in Korea," said GM Korean Operations President Roberto Rempel. "The global and domestic markets are looking forward to the all-new model, as it starts a new chapter for the Chevrolet brand.” "We sent our first shipment of 6,000 vehicles to the U.S. in February and have already seen an amazing response from dealers, customers and the media," he added. ■ Unique designs reflect diverse lifestyles The Trax Crossover is characterized by a stylish design that combines a crossover's unique sleek ratios and sportiness. The shape of the letter X, symbolizing crossover, was used as a key element to bring out details in the body design. The model’s unique dynamism is expressed through design elements often found in sports cars, such as a wide wheelbase, a muscular body shape and a lower roofline. In addition, the Trax Crossover offers distinct designs based on consumers’ diverse lifestyles: the RS emphasizes its sporty design and the ACTIV stresses outdoor activities. "The Trax Crossover is a true Global GM achievement and ready for big, big things,” Stuart Norris, GMI(GM International & China) Design Vice President, said. “The Trax Crossover embodies Chevrolet’s philosophy of delivering pleasure to drivers based on unique sophistication and unprecedented efficiency. The Trax Crossover is designed with prominent functionalities and a clear purpose, based on the great design heritage of Chevrolet.” The RS stands for Rally Sport. It is a model with a sleek design and dynamic performance based on the Chevrolet brand's racing heritage. The RS’s exclusive exterior options include 19-inch carbon flash machined alloy wheels, a black ice chrome grille bar, a black roof, a black Trax lettering logo, and an RS badge. The gloss black exterior palette was applied to its exclusive exterior mirrors, skid plate inserts and roof rack, highlighting the RS model's charismatic appearance. The RS's interior has unique jet black and red accents. It also offers RS artificial leather seats, gloss black IP and front door deco panels, a D-cut steering wheel, a front door sill plate, and a black headliner to deliver dynamics and tension inspired by racing vehicles with visual and tactile elements. Specialized for outdoor activities, the ACTIV trim features a more refined, muscular design. The lower part of the radiator grille has been enlarged. The ACTIV offers exclusive optional titanium chrome exterior features to bring more toughness. It also comes with 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, a gloss black exterior and a roof rack, along with optional jet black and Artemis features, such as ACTIV artificial leather seats, to spark confidence and excitement about outdoor activities. ■ Roomy and driver-oriented interior The Trax Crossover has a wide and low stance with slender proportions courtesy of a body measuring 4,540 mm in length, 1,825 mm in width and 1,560 mm in height. Additionally, it has a roomy interior that goes beyond its segment. With a long wheelbase of 2,700 mm and the shortest rear overhang among Chevrolet models, it also boasts wider and more comfortable legroom for the second-row seats. Its high floor helps passengers get in and out comfortably. As its cargo space can be expanded even further, it can be used to load items for various activities, such as car camping. The Trax Crossover's interior is tailored for drivers based on Chevrolet's new-generation design language. It has a floating dual screen, which consists of an 8-inch color cluster display and an 11-inch color touchscreen. With the center touchscreen tilted toward the driver at about 9 degrees, it provides a more convenient interface and supports various features, such as driving information and entertainment assistance. It also has advanced features that include power-ventilated and heated seats with lumbar support, wireless phone charging, a power liftgate, auto hold, and a rear seat air vent for the convenience of users. ■ Outstanding performance via a rigid, lightweight body and the powertrain with cutting-edge technologies As a crossover targeting the global market, the Trax Crossover employs GM's latest technologies for outstanding performance and efficiency. In particular, the Trax Crossover's body structure was designed with GM's latest design process called "Smart Engineering." Smart Engineering is a system that simulates various driving situations in a computer to identify and reinforce the load-bearing parts of the body in various driving situations. Despite the Trax Crossover having a larger and stronger body than competing models, Smart Engineering is the secret to achieving a weight reduction. As a result, it provides excellent driving performance, fuel economy, stability and durability. The powertrain has an E-Turbo Prime engine built leveraging GM’s cutting-edge technologies. The engine’s superior power and fuel efficiency have been proven in the Chevrolet Malibu and Trailblazer. The Trax Crossover’s new 1.2-liter E-Turbo Prime engine has a more compact size. The Trax crossover delivers not only an outstanding performance with maximum output of 139 horsepower and maximum torque of 22.4 kg-m but also excellent fuel efficiency of 12.7 km per liter based on the model with 17-inch tires in combination with a proven Gen III 6-speed automatic transmission. Trax Crossover drivers will also benefit from the model’s third-class low-emission vehicle certification. ■ State-of-the-art convenience and safety features worthy of a global model The Trax Crossover has a cutting-edge infotainment system and various safety features that go with its stylish design. It offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay without a cable connection and comes with active noise cancellation (ANC), protecting passengers from unwanted sounds from outside. The 11-inch infotainment system elevates the sense of luxury, which is difficult to find in entry models. It also comes with advanced safety features, including six air bags and the StabiliTrak® stability control system with Hill Start Assist. Additional features to prevent accidents in advance include Forward Collision Alert, low-speed Automatic Emergency Braking, a head-up LED Warning Lamp (RLAD), Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist, the Forward Pedestrian Detection and Braking function, Lane Change Alert and Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Safety has been further enhanced by applying a rear-passenger reminder to the basic trim to prevent accidents in which children or items are left in the vehicle. ■ Optional features exclusive for Korea The Trax crossover targets the world market but exclusively has options for Korean customers. The Trax auto-hold system automatically controls the brake, assisting Korean drivers who pass through frequent stop-and-go traffic. Rear air vents have been added to the Trax sold in Korea for rear-seat passengers. The cargo area is also accessed via a power liftgate, helping its users to load items. In addition, the crossover vehicle exclusively has exterior-design features, including LED tail lamps, LED turn indicators, an integrated exterior mirror, and a shark fin antenna. Drivers with the ACTIV can have a wide range of the Trax's versatility through the "Hit The Road" package. It will lead to unique styles along with the practicality of loading items for outdoor activities like camping. The price of the Trax Crossover (based on the lowered individual consumption tax) aims to be the new trendsetter in the crossover market, starting at KRW 20.52 million for the LS, KRW 23.66 million for the LT, KRW 26.81 million for the ACTIV and KRW 27.39 million for the RS.
