The customs duty on motorcars would decrease by around 20 to 25 per cent and on vans by around 25 to 65 percent due to the new tax amendments imposed through the 2015 Budget proposals, says the Deputy Secretary to the Finance Ministry.

Finance Ministry Deputy Secretary S.R. Attygalle told adaderanabiz.lk that these Budget proposals would be effective from midnight today (24 October) and that the prices of motorcars and vans would definitely decrease.

“A special tax has vanbeen introduced through this Budget which includes all the duties in the import of motorcars and vans. Hence, the prices of these vehicles would definitely decrease,” says Mr. Attygalle.

According to this new tax amendment, the 202 per cent duty on the import of motor camotor cars below 1000 cc engine capacity has been reduced to 173 per cent. Accordingly, the import duty on small motorcars would decrees by around 29 per cent.

Where vans are concerned, the 175 per cent duty on cargo vans and the 126 per cent duty on 13 to 20 seater vans have been slashed by 100 per cent.

Toyota Recalling 670,000 Prius Hybrids in U.S.


Toyota is recalling 670,000 of its 2004-9 Prius hybrids in the United States to fix problems involving the loss of steering and the hybrid powertrain shutting down, the automaker has told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Toyota recalls Priuses in 2.77M global recall
The move is part of a worldwide recall of 2.77 million vehicles, according to The Associated Press, which quoted Toyota officials in Japan. Only the Prius is affected in the United States. Outside the United States the recall covers the Corolla and the Wish, a small van.

The cars are being recalled because the metal used for a steering component is not hard enough, according to a report the automaker filed on Wednesday with the safety agency. The part could wear out “if the steering wheel is frequently and forcefully turned to the full left or full right position while driving at low speeds,” and that “could result in the loss of steering ability,” according to the report.News for Toyota Recalling

Toyota said it got its first notice of such a failure in February 2010 in Japan and began an investigation that was inconclusive. Last February, Toyota got its first report of steering loss in the United States. This month, the company concluded that it finally knew the cause and decided a recall was needed.

A second recall covers 350,000 of those same vehicles and involves replacing an electric water pump that could fail and shut down the hybrid powertrain system. But the gas engine would continue to move the vehicle, Brian Lyons, a Toyota spokesman, said in an e-mail.

Toyota told the agency it got its first report of a water pump problem in 2009 in Japan, which resulted in changes to the pump in 2010. But pump failures continued, and it was not until this month that Toyota determined the cause of the problem – a coil wire that could be scratched, leading to corrosion and “in some cases break.”

This is the second time the automaker has experienced a cooling problem on the Prius hybrid system.

In 2010, the company conducted what it called a customer satisfaction campaign that covered 390,000 2004-7 Priuses in North America. Toyota said it would replace the coolant pump because it could malfunction and cause the hybrid system to stop working.

At the time, a Toyota spokesman told Wheels a recall was not necessary because the gasoline engine would still move the vehicle. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration did not object.

Customer satisfaction or special service campaigns are less demanding than a recall, which has legal requirements and penalties for failing to comply. Mr. Lyons said in an e-mail on Wednesday that the service campaign dealt with a different problem than the new recall.

Stopping Procedure for Toyota Hybrid Vehicles.

Toyota says it is not aware of any accidents in the United States related to either of the recalls on Wednesday.

The company described the recalls as voluntary. But once a manufacturer is aware of a safety problem it must — within five business days — inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of its plan for a recall or face civil penalties.

News for Toyota Recalling Prius Hybrids in U.S

This is not the first time the Prius has had problems that resulted in a loss of power. In 2005, the agency investigated about 124,000 2004-5 Priuses after some owners complained the gasoline engine would stall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration eventually found 428 complaints from owners and almost 6,700 warranty claims. But it decided to drop the investigation and not press for a recall after Toyota said it would conduct a special service campaign to make a software change to prevent the problem.

Tax on Motor Vehicles Increased


The Government has revised taxes on cars, three-wheelers and motorbikes effective from today (31 March 2012) in a move to reduce import costs and motor vehicle imports.

Motor Vehicles Tax Increased in Sri LankaTax on Motor vehicles which include cars, vans, trishaws and motor bicycles have been increased with immediate effect. The Ministry of Finance and Planning announced today that the increase was made to ensure a drop in the vehicles imported to the country in order to reduce the high traffic congestions prevalent. The Ministry also said that this move will help bring down the use of fuel by motorists.

The classifications of the Tax have been made to correspond with the engine capacity of the vehicles. Hybrid vehicle production taxes below 1000CC have been increased by 14 % with tax for all hybrids above 3000CC being increased by 57%.

Production duties for cars and vans have been classified into the fuel type used together with the engine capacity. The tax for cars that use Petrol under 1000CC have been increased by 85% with cars having an engine capacity of over 3000CC being increased by 129%. The category between 1000 CC to 2000 CC have also been increased by 85%.

Production duties on Diesel cars have been increased from upto 114% to 173% to correspond with the engine capacity.

Hybrid Car Tax increasesed in Sri LankaImport duty on vehicle spare parts have also been increased to correspond the highest value on either Specific Duty or Advolarum Duty disbanding the previous method of taxation on spare parts.

However there has been no change in the tax imposed on tractors, busses and Lorries.

Toyota Prius (hybrid) wont start, what’s wrong?
Toyota Prius (hybrid) wont start, what's wrong?

When I pressed the power on button, nothing would happen. No lights, no sound, no response… the car was absolutely dead. (NHW 20)

What can I do? Is it a problem of the 12v battery? or the 400v? Can a Prius 2 be started with jumper cables on the 12v battery? Or should I just call the Toyota official dealer?

Please help, do you have any ideas or suggestions what I can do to get the car working or what is wrong?  Dr. Sampath

Porsche Panamera – Hybrid Now is Sri Lanka


Porsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri LankaPorsche Panamera - Hybrid Now is Sri Lanka

The Panamera S Hybrid has a 3.0-liter V6 compressor engine with direct fuel injection and fully variable intake camshaft timing adjustment. Combined with the charge effect of the compressor, this ensures a high torque of 324 lb.-ft. even at low engine speeds. Power output is 333 hp.

The combustion engine is assisted by a 47 hp electric motor incorporated between the transmission and the engine. The motor is supplied by a high-voltage nickel-metal hydride battery located below the floor of the rear luggage compartment.

Together, the two units develop a maximum total system output of 380 hp and a maximum system torque of 428 lb.-ft. and accelerate the Panamera S Hybrid from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Top track speed is 167 mph. This is achieved with fuel consumption of just 7.1 l/100 km.

The interplay between combustion engine, electric motor and high-voltage battery is regulated by the electronic engine management system. It engages and disengages the combustion engine by means of a specially developed separating coupling. Thanks to the rapid-action separating coupling and the equally fast response of the combustion engine, these processes are performed comfortably and smoothly. You do not need to adapt to the system.

Panamera S Hybrid: Fuel consumption* in (l/100 km) urban 7.6 · extra urban 6.8 · combined 7.1 · CO2 emissions 167 g/km

*  Figures for optional 19-inch All-season tyres optimised for rolling resistance in l/100 km: urban 7.4 · extra urban 6.6 · combined 6.8 · CO2 emissions 159 g/km.

Hybrid Car Emergency Procedure


Hybrid Car Accident in Sri Lanka.

Hybrid car accident in Sri LankaHybrid car accident in Sri LankaHybrid car accident in Sri LankaHybrid car accident in Sri Lanka

Extrication

1) Turn off ignition switch and remove key (if so equipped). This turns off the engine and the motor, which prevents electric current from flowing into the cables from the motor or high-voltage battery, and, turns off power to the airbags and the seatbelt pre-tensioner.

2) After turning off the ignition switch, it is recommended that emergency responders remove the key (if so equipped) so the car cannot be inadvertently restarted. To let everyone at the crash scene know the key is removed, give the key to the I/C, who will make a general announcement regarding the key. At this point, the high-voltage system has been isolated. This improves responder safety in and around the vehicle.

3) The next step is to shut down the 12V electrical system on the hybrid just as we typically do on any conventional vehicle involve din an MVA.

4) Locate the 12V battery. It may or may not be under the hood. In the Toyota Prius it is located inside the driver’s rear wheel well within the trunk. Either disconnect or double cut first the negative and then the positive cable. This disables the high-voltage battery controller, which prevents electric current from flowing into the orange cables and the high-voltage battery.

5) With the ignition key turned off and removed and the 12V battery disabled, the hybrid vehicle is safe to work on for vehicle rescue. High-voltage electricity still exists, but it is isolated to the battery pack, generally in the trunk of cars or under the rear passenger seat in pick-ups.

6) An alternative to disabling the 12V battery is to remove the HEV fuse, generally located in the engine compartment junction box. When in doubt pull all fuses in this box.

7) Stabilize the vehicle. Crib at four points directly under the front and rear pillars. Do not place cribbing under high-voltage power cables, exhaust system or fuel system.

8) At this point conventional rescue techniques may be used, including cutting of door hinges, modified dash roll, steering wheel displacement, etc. However caution must be used at all times to avoid cutting any high or intermediate-voltage lines.

9) Should a hybrid be involved in a rollover, end up on its roof, this may prevent access to the engine compartment and disabling of the 12V battery may not be possible. This poses a serious threat. If access to the 12V battery is not hindered, extrication can be handled as in any conventional vehicle rollover.

10) The removal of the roof of hybrids such as the Toyota Prius may be easily accomplished by opening the hatch to gain access for cutting of the pillars. The hatch will need to be opened manually with pry tools because 12V power is needed to open the hatch.

11) Hybrid identification tags are located in the rear and/or sides of the vehicle. Severe impacts in these areas could destroy or hide the identification tags. You must be sure to look for other hybrid identifications, make sure you are aware of the models on the road, and when in doubt assume the vehicle is a hybrid until proven otherwise.

FIRE

1) A fire involving a hybrid vehicle can be handled by following normal vehicle firefighting procedures. In a typical vehicle fire incident, the engine compartment, interior of vehicle or trunk area are burning. By following generally accepted fire suppression guidelines, crews attack the fire with an adequate water flow rate, working from a safe position of approach.

2) SCBA is worn throughout the incident.

3) The initial fire attack should be a fast and aggressive attack.

4) Fire crews may not be able to identify a hybrid until the fire has been knocked down and overhaul operations have commenced.

5) The wheels should be chocked as soon as safely possible.

6) During overhaul, the same steps defined in the extrication module should be used to disable the high-voltage system. (shut down power, disable 12V system)

7) Fire suppression crews will not be shocked or electrocuted during attack on a hybrid vehicle fire, even if flames are impinging on the battery pack itself.

8) There are potential, unique problems involving fire situations with hybrid vehicles. Any fire where there is direct flame impingement on the high-voltage battery pack would be an example. A fire that has originated within the battery pack itself or an electrical fire that begins somewhere within the high-voltage electrical system would also require special precautions.

9) Radiant heat could cause the modules inside the high-voltage battery to melt just as any plastic material would exposed to high temperatures. If heated sufficiently, it is possible the plastic casings could melt down, exposing the inner components of the high-voltage battery.

10) Copious amounts of water should be used quickly to eliminate radiant heat to the battery box and begin cooling the plastic battery cell modules in the high-voltage battery pack itself.

11) Should a fire in the Ni-MH HV battery pack occur, the I/C will have to decide whether to pursue an offensive or defensive.

12) If a melted nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery is encountered, the I/C may want the nearest dealer of the vehicle notified to send a designated battery recovery specialist to the scene to deal with the damaged battery.

13) In the Ni-MH Product Safety Data Sheet, responders are advised that virtually all fires involving Ni-MH batteries can be controlled with water. The information sheet also recommends “In case of fire where nickel metal batteries are present, apply a smothering agent such as METL-X, sand, dry ground dolomite, soda ash, or flood the area with water. A smothering agent will extinguish burning nickel metal hydride batteries.”

14) Class D extinguishers are the recommended extinguisher to use with Ni-MH batteries. But…….

15) Not all Class D extinguishers are equal. Some contain particles of metal such as copper. Copper, for example, is one metal that may actually cause an adverse reaction with the high-voltage battery and generate hydrogen gas. In a small space, such as a trunk, this could cause an explosion.

16) Large amounts of water will not be able to directly attack a fire burning inside the battery pack unit itself. The metal cover of the pack prevents a direct attack on the internal cells of the battery. The water application, however, will cool the adjacent battery cells. Burning Ni-MH batteries will burn themselves out. Applying sufficient amounts of water will cool the metal housing of the battery pack and control the fire until the battery modules that are actually on fire burn themselves out. DO NOT EVER REMOVE THE COVER OF THE HIGH-VOLTAGE BATTERY PACK!

17) When water is used to extinguish Ni-MH battery fires, some hydrogen gas may evolve. In this situation ventilation will be needed to prevent a build up of the gas. Leaving the trunk, hatchback or battery compartment cover open is advised to ensure ventilation of the gas. If there is a concern that hydrogen gas is present, and ventilation is not possible, fire smothering agents are recommended.

18) A battery fire WILL produce toxic fumes, including oxides of nickel cobalt, aluminum, manganese, lanthanum, cerium, neodymium and praseodymium. Because of this, SCBA must be worn throughout the fire attack and during overhaul.

19) In addition, keep the “hot zone” clear of unnecessary personnel. Keep all “hot zone” personnel fully protected with structural clothing that addresses Level 3 hazmat personal protective clothing criteria and SCBA.

STEPS TO SECRURING HYBRID VEHICLE

1. Chock wheels

2. Remove/Find Key

3. Give key to I/C

4. I/C makes general announcement regarding key

5. Locate power button/Shut off power
