While there are dozens of options for filters, covering different effects, sizes, and manufacturers, I found that I only needed a few key filters for landscape shooting. I like to use neutral density filters and circular polarizers, both of which are punchy and less easy to reproduce in software. Haida’s NanoPro line has given excellent results in my past experience – can their line of magnetic filters deliver the same quality?

The kit

Haida sells a number of parts of its “Magnetic Series” including UV, ND, Variable ND, Graduated ND, and Polarizing ND filters, as well as their Astro Focused Clear Night Filter and adapter rings. In this review, I’ll take a look at the 82mm Kit, which includes everything needed for use with 82mm and 77mm lenses, thanks to the included adapter ring. For filters, the kit includes a circular polarizer, a 6-stop ND filter and a 10-stop ND filter. It also includes a leather carrying case and a magnetic lens cap.

The Haida packaging is clean and functional, with the filters already stored in the included carrying case. Unpacking is simple, just unpack the filters, which left the factory blank. Beyond that, there’s not much to the question of usability – the filters easily attach to the magnetic ring once you’ve mounted it on your lens. You can stack the filters on top of each other, while the slim filter rings reduce the risk of stacked filters being vignetted.

Attachment and detachment is literally a click away, with the filters fitting firmly together and separating under the pressure of your fingertips. While the filters are secure, it’s possible to drop them if you’re not careful, or even drop them if something catches just the front of the lens. The super thin filter rings, while nice to prevent vignetting, don’t offer a ton of grip options. This lack of grip also impacts the case, where you have to carefully pull the filters out of the deeper pockets or you’ll end up smearing the glass. These issues are not unique to these filters as they affect any filter with a thin ring, but they are more noticeable given the intent of the magnetic design. A filter that makes it so easy to put on and take off should also make it easy to handle and store.

While the magnetic attachment means you won’t need to screw them in often, the threads are cut very cleanly. This makes it easier to attach the magnetic base, as well as unscrewing it after use.

The performance

Beyond the usability, which is pretty good, the bigger question is how do the filters work? It doesn’t make sense to put a $ 10 filter with poor performance in front of a $ 2000 goal. Fortunately, these filters provide a high quality image, comparable to the B&W, Breakthrough and Tiffen filters that I use and have tested.

In testing, I didn’t find any unusual issues with reflections (adding a filter always adds the possibility of reflections, as there is another piece of glass in the way). Neither the packaging nor the filter itself says if it’s multi-layered, but I found them easy to clean and resistant to flaring, potentially indicating that there is some level of coating.

The circular polarizer has a fairly unique design. Since the filters can rotate freely inside the magnetic ring, the polarizer is just a fixed ring, relying on the rotation to adjust the degree of polarization. While it’s hard to say if this results in a lower degree of vignetting, at least it’s a cool design.

Neutral density filters appear to correspond to the nominal reduction in light. With them in place, they matched both the level of reduction provided by filters of the same rating, as well as the mathematically expected change in exposure.

The color casts are a bit difficult to judge. I found that every very dark ND filter can introduce some sort of color cast and even had different results per lens. Fortunately, these don’t produce a strong cast.

Evaluating the performance of the polarizer is tricky. In many scenes, the effect itself can be variable and subtle, depending on how the polarizer is set. I didn’t notice any usage issues and it seemed to work well compared to the benchmark filters I was referring to. In the past, I’ve found that as long as a polarizer doesn’t negatively impact picture quality, it’s probably fine.

Overall the kit is well thought out. The choice of the included filters makes a lot of sense, as it covers all the essentials that I would like to find myself. I would love to see a version that includes the Night Sky Filter or the Black Mist Filter, as those are the other two filters in the Haida line that I would definitely include in the bag. The lack of a graduated ND filter is not a significant loss, as these filters are less needed with the dynamic range capabilities of modern cameras.

If you are looking at this set and have the option of getting an 82mm lens now or in the future, definitely consider going for 82mm by 77mm. Looks like 82mm (or even bigger, unfortunately) is becoming more and more the standard size of lenses. Fortunately, that’s not a big penalty when it comes to carrying filters, and the included 82mm to 77mm adapter works well. As for other inclusions, a direct magnetic adapter from 82mm to 77mm would be ideal, allowing you to keep a magnetic ring on each lens and then simply swap filters between them while in use.

Conclusion

Haida’s line of NanoPro magnetic filters work quite well. As for the performance of the filter, I have no complaints. The filters performed well and were within their ratings, while still being fairly economical. The magnetic system may be fine for some users, while others may prefer the style of square slot adapters, or even just traditional screw filters. Overall, I think this system strikes a good balance between portability, thanks to its smaller size than these square filters, speed of operation, and quality of results. Haida’s NanoPro Kit is now available, and includes circular polarizer, 6 and 10 stop ND, 77mm adapter ring, and magnetic lens cap.

What I liked

  • The filters included are all essential and very useful

  • Magnetic system works well in the field

  • The included carrying case makes this a unique and practical “kit” for essential landscape filters

  • Magnetic lens cap is useful and is a smart solution to lens cap incompatibility

What could be improved

  • The filter rings are very thin, which can make handling tricky

  • The “soft” incompatibility with lens caps is disappointing, although understandable

“I took the huge alpaca toy home with me”

On our way out of the salt marshes of Uyuni in Bolivia, we came across a shop selling goods such as bags of salt, candy and sweaters with pretty patterns. I was browsing through the little fluffy alpaca toys, which are sold all over the Andes, when I turned a corner and laid eyes on the biggest one I’ve ever seen. I burst out laughing at how round and adorable it was. I was obsessed but thought it would be too expensive to bring it back with me When it turned out to cost around £ 20 I couldn’t say no. I carried him home, cuddled him on a night bus and strapped him to the seat next to me for the 5pm flight. It brought joy to everyone who saw it and even the flight attendants cooed like it was a baby. It now takes pride of place in my living room and is the best souvenir I have ever bought. Molly Williams, journalist, Sheffield

“A neighbor asked me why I had a multicolored urinal in the garden”

While in Morocco, I came across a factory that made beautiful mosaic knickknacks. Feeling low to the ground, I decided to order a mosaic fountain for the garden. Several months later I was called from Heathrow and told my fountain had arrived – and that it was so heavy it required specialized transport, costing a fortune. It turned out to be a meter high concrete slab with a few broken colored tiles stuck to the front, and it needed electricity to run (which I didn’t have in the garden). My Moroccan fantasy did not translate into the Surrey countryside; the fountain never worked and I decided to get rid of it after a neighbor asked me why I had a multi-colored urinal in the garden. David Hicks, Forensic Accountant, Surrey

“I have a Californian turtle on a glittering sled”

I’m very lucky to have done quite a bit of traveling, and for every new country I visit, I buy some kind of hanging keepsake that I can use as a Christmas tree decoration. I’ve got all kinds now, from a California turtle riding a glittering sleigh to a Japanese Hello Kitty in a kimono. Each year, our Christmas tree is a nostalgic visual memory of our adventures.

“My husband’s crutches are the strangest memory I have ever had”

On the last day of a family vacation in Austria, about 20 years ago, my husband took our kids to a water park and had an accident on one of the slides which caused his knee to dislocate. He had to go to the hospital for treatment and missed our flight back to the UK. Finally, we got home, with my husband on crutches and wearing a “cricket brace” on his leg. My daughter has since ‘inherited’ the crutches and I still have the cricket brace in the attic. It’s the strangest memory I have ever had but it always reminds me of that vacation – until the last day we had a wonderful time! Anonymous, Wales

“My garage is full of various soft drinks”

I don’t tend to drink soft drinks at home, but I always try them if I see something that I don’t recognize abroad. This means that I often fall in love with random soda bottles that we don’t have in the UK, and end up trying to bring bags home from the airport. Currently I have bottles of Spezi (Germany), Rivella (Switzerland) and Appelsín (Iceland) all hidden in my garage. Heather, charity worker, Edinburgh

“A bright green lizard hitchhiked in my bag!”

After a school trip to Swanage, where we visited the sand dunes of Studland National Nature Reserve, I undid my clothes and put my bag away in a closet. When I walked into the closet a few hours later I was confronted with a bright green lizard! Unbeknownst to me, the male sand lizard had hitchhiked, probably when I put down my lunch bag, and walked the 50 miles to our home in Wiltshire. I was fascinated but my parents weren’t willing to go the distance to make the reptile protected and rare, so I let it roam free in our garden. He probably didn’t survive, but it added to my fascination with the natural world. Ellis Selway, environmentalist, Cambridgeshire

“I bought a souvenir that started a family business”

In 2003, I bought a souvenir that started a family business. My partner and I were on vacation on the Greek island of Ikaria and our guide mentioned that a local hardware store sold sheep shears which made a great gift for gardeners. I bought a pair for my mom’s birthday. Three years later my brother Jack was looking for business ideas and mom mentioned scissors. “They are fantastic,” she said. “Why can’t you see if you can import them? Jack went to Ikaria’s hardware store, then met George, whose family make the scissors. Jack started selling them in the UK and after a few years handed the business over to our sister, Claire. She still runs it, 15 years later. When my partner and I got married, George and his family came to our wedding. Emma Tinker, teacher, Oxford

‘My stupa replica has a special place on my bedside table’

Over 20 years ago I went to a Swiss friend’s house who was living and studying in Bhutan and together we visited Karma Drubdey Convent. Afterwards, we each received a small gift: a replica of a stupa, made by a nun from a mixture of clay and ashes from deceased nuns. It’s a reminder of the fleetingness of life and as such it has a special place on my nightstand. (Barbara, my Swiss friend, is now a fully ordained Buddhist nun.) Alexandra Lavizzari, writer and artist, Somerset

“This strange papier-mâché creature has become our holiday mascot”

In 2018 my partner and I went on vacation to Amsterdam and visited the IJ-Hallen flea market. We split up to see who could buy the strangest item for less than $ 5. I won with this weird papier mache creature that only costs 40. I thought it was a lamb, but other members of our group thought it was supposed to be a tiger because of its coloring, so it became known as the tamb (tiger-lamb) and became our mascot for the rest of the holidays. We took the ferry back to the UK and went through a very strong storm. The tamb was seated at our table at the bar, and since neither of us suffered from seasickness, it was considered a good luck charm. Tanner Trangmar, civil servant, Edinburgh

“I don’t know what happened to me keeping Big Mac packaging”

In 2019, my parents were downsizing and I went to sort the boxes of my things that were still in their loft. My four kids watched and I was sure to stumble upon something that would impress them on my travels around the world. I did not disappoint. In one box were matryoshka dolls from Russia and decorated chopsticks from China – however, it was two crisp, neatly folded white papers that impressed them the most. Even though one was written in Cyrillic (Russian) and the other in Hanzi (Chinese characters), it was unmistakably Big Mac packaging from Moscow and Beijing. The Golden Arches first lit up in Moscow in 1990 and there were still lines around the block when we visited three years later. What happened to me keeping this wrapper, I’ll never know, especially since then I had to listen to my kids complaining that I had never let them set foot in a McDonald’s. Jo Carroll, social worker, Australia

It might sound hit and miss, but my all-time favorite candy is Sixlets. However, you can’t really find them in most places.

Since I was a kid, I have loved the Sixlets. I’m sure some would dispute this claim, but they are MUCH better than M&M. Sorry, not sorry. These delicious little round bites of chocolate candy coated with malt-flavored candies have been around for sixty years now. I still remember every time my parents stopped to refuel, they always bought me a package for the road. Not only that, but they were my favorite snack every time we went to Holiday Drive-In in Reo, Indiana.

Fun fact for you, depending on Sixlets, they were originally sold six at a time for a penny, hence the name “Sixlets”. I always thought it was because of the different colors, but that’s not the case as the Sixlets are only available in five different colors (with the exception of special vacation packages).

If you’ve never indulged in the goodness of Sixlets, you’re missing out. In some ways, they’re comparable to M & M’s, in that they’re chocolate candies with a candy-coated shell, and they come in a variety of colors. However, some of the main differences are that the Sixlets are shaped like a small ball and each color tastes slightly different from the next, thanks to their candy coated shells. In fact, I didn’t realize they tasted different until I was 20, as I always put several in my mouth at the same time. Oh and another difference, actually a bigger deal in 2021 is the fact that Sixlets are actually gluten free.

Previously, you could go to any gas station or store and find Sixlets tubes or bags in the candy aisle. These days, they are virtually impossible to find. Pretty much the only time you can find Sixlets on the shelves is around Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter when they release the holiday wrap. So why are they so hard to find all year round now?

This is a question that I have been asking myself for quite some time. Whenever I go to a new gas station or grocery store, I am always disappointed to find that they do not offer Sixlets. The other day I was in the Halloween candy aisle at Walmart looking for some. Not to deceive or treat, but selfishly, for myself. I was disappointed to find that they weren’t even available for Halloween.

One of the reasons could be that they were a Hersey’s product until 2003, until they sold the product to SweetWorks, according to Candy.org. Perhaps without the support of a major distributor like Hersey’s, Sixlet’s has become hard to find in some states like here in Indiana.

Either way, the world (and especially myself) could use more Sixlets in our lives. Of course, you can still go to Amazon and buy them, but I miss the time when they were available anytime at gas stations. I don’t know who I need to talk to to make this happen, but I’m more than willing to make my case before them. If you know of any stores that sell them in the Evansville area, please email me at travis@wkdq.com so I can stock them!

Protective covers

The Airpods themselves are still well protected in the bag by the charging case. Unfortunately, the plastic box itself is prone to unsightly scratches or severe damage. To avoid scratching the Airpods charging case, there are hundreds of different protective covers. Some of them are more practical, others are mainly aimed at attracting attention. If you want to give your Airpods case an individual touch, you will definitely find it.

A simple variant in real leather like this Woolnut Airpod Case discreetly protects and improves visual appearance. Such a case is priced at 20 to 35 euros. Monochrome plastic silicone sleeves and sleeves are less noticeable. The waterproof model from Catalyst, for example, is available from 21 euros. Simple versions like the Elago silicone cases cost just 8 euros.


It looks like Airpods Max (test report). A case is also included in the delivery, but only protects a part of the noble and expensive headphones. In addition to the completely closed covers for carrying in a backpack, there are also protective covers for the aluminum ear cups. These protect the surface from unsightly defects and give the helmet an individual appearance. If you want, you can also replace the standard cover with a half-closed case with an eye-catching design.

Extra power

With 398mAh of charge in the case, the AirPods get by for three good charge cycles with around five hours of music. It’s good for everyday life, but not for traveling. A power bank is a good addition when you’re on the go with your Airpods. Better yet: a power bank with a built-in Airpods compartment. They are available from 30 euros.

There are two categories to choose from. On the one hand, there are replacement cases, on the other hand, real batteries with a compartment for Airpods. Power banks start at 20 euros. you can find it here INIU charging case with 10,000 mAh, suitable cables and a USB-A connection for charging other devices. If you need it a bit smaller, you can also get separate charging cases for Airpods. They look like the original case and offer up to five battery charges or are attached to the actual case. The slip-on variant PowerAir700 are available from around 30 euros on Amazon. Lenture offers a model with an additional QI standard recharge for 36 euros. In order to charge the older generation of Airpods with an existing QI power bank (test report), there are also adapters for the original charging case.

If you want to charge your Airpods Max on the go, you also have suitable accessories in the form of classic power banks. If charging is to work wirelessly, retailers offer suitable solutions in the form of a Qi adapter for headphones To. These consist of a soft TPU shell for the earbuds with a built-in Qi receiver, which is connected directly to the Airpods Max via USB-C. The price of the retrofit solution is around 20 euros.

Sticker

How to take it: Stickers beautify or worsen the look of Airpods. They definitely have a positive side effect. They help to avoid unsightly scratches on the surface. Such stickers or skins are available for the headphones as well as for the interior and exterior surfaces of the case. For the interior, the stickers set rather fine accents. With asterisks, lightning, monochrome or gold, the stickers are available from a voucher 7 euros.

There are complete sticker sets for the exterior and headphones. Here you will find stickers with funny sayings, with vivid colors or patterns. It starts at 8 euros.

equipment

There are accessories or tuning gadgets for Airpods for a wide variety of occasions. Simple but practical for friends of silicone in-ear headphones, the rubber ear caps for Airpods. They are available either simply as a silicone cover, with a holder for the headset or with in-ear plugs for the ear canal. It starts here from 6 euros. If Airpods like to slip out of your ears or play sports, here’s a handy addition when in doubt. As a result, there are also holders for the headset from 2 euros.

Silicone straps for Airpods are also great for sports people. On the one hand it contradicts True Wireless, but for those who play sports it’s an added safety measure if you don’t want to lose the grip. And if – for some reason – you don’t have the Airpods charging case with you, there are always plug mounts for it. wrist, Apple watch and backpack.

Another accessory solves a problem for frequent travelers: With the Twelve South AirFly Duo wireless transmitter, you get the sound of classic jack connections to one or two pairs of Airpods or Airpods Max. The product is around 50 euros in the price comparison. We have already tested other variants of such Bluetooth transmitters (comparative test).

If the accessories are to be as cheap as possible, we recommend that you use a set. The processing quality is not very high, but the price-performance ratio is decent. Cheap Kits are mostly available for around 10 euros.

Charging stations

There are a number of great options out there, including wireless charging (tips) for Airpods. In addition to normal charging pads or power banks, multiple chargers are of particular interest to iPhone or Apple Watch users. The Cellularline Dual wireless fast charger with twice 10 watts of power is relatively simple and convinces with its good workmanship and high performance. The price is just under 70 euros. The Terratec Chargeair All Desk for 49 euros is cheaper and still correctly processed. The relatively inconspicuous charging station offers room for the Apple Watch, an iPhone and the Airpods case.

The multi-charge stands from Perfuw or Baiwka for around 20 euros are even cheaper. These multi-chargers also have room for a second smartphone. If you have your charging station next to your bed, you can also choose a variant with an integrated table lamp. We show the best Qi chargers in a comparison test.

Conclusion

Airpods and Airpods Max are great ex works, but there are still some useful additions and tuning options. Experience has shown that the covers are really useful in protecting the sensitive plastic surface and the silicone straps for the use of the helmet during sports. The prices are so low that the investment is well worth it. The same goes for the silicone protectors of the Airpods Max earbuds.

When it comes to the extra battery capacity and the charging station, we wouldn’t go for the cheapest products, but rather invest a little more. With the Chargeair All Desk, Terratec shows that a good charging station does not have to be very expensive. From our point of view, conventional power banks are best suited for mobile power, as they also work universally with other end devices.

Blanchard was one of two survivors to speak Friday morning at the 30th anniversary memorial service held at the site of the fatal incident on Bridges Street in Hamlet.

Towards the end of his speech, Blanchard rummaged through a bag and pulled out the clothes: a blouse, a shirt and a pair of socks.

“It’s so great to be here on behalf of my Heavenly Father who gave me life that day… he saved me that day,” Blanchard said. “That day is the most terrible day I can remember. As I stand here for these reasons, I cannot tell you where I was, but I know that it is on these reasons that the tragedy occurred.

In addition to the factory workers, Phillip Dawkins, who filled the Lance snack machine, also perished.

Blanchard said after the fire she traveled the country to talk about workplace safety.

“Don’t be afraid,” she said. “An employer is a man like me… we have to have nerve, we have to be bold… we have to rise to the occasion, because when you go to bat… you want that home run.

“It’s not about us anymore, it’s about the future,” Blanchard continued, saying his daughter now works in a chicken factory. “I don’t like it, but it’s an income. I didn’t like it when I worked here, but I had to provide for my family.

Blanchard said it was time for the companies to “stop using the poor man, the poor woman, just to get your luxury yacht.”

“It’s time for us as people to come together, to work together, to love each other, to help each other. “

Blanchard then thanked Reverend Tommy Legrand for his help over the years, and his own pastor, Dian Griffin Jackson for being an inspiration.

On that fateful day, Blanchard said she saw the name of Jesus in her head “and it turned into musical notes”.

“My children have passed over my forehead,” Blanchard continued. “I wanted to live for my children … not for myself, just for them – so that they could have a future. And I tried to instill in them ‘educate yourself, so you don’t have to work in any chicken factory. ‘

“Maybe you all think I’m delusional and delusional,” Blanchard said. “And if you’re not delusional and you are not delusional, you won’t do anything!”

WEEKLY REMINDER

For the survivor Annette Zimmerman, being at the scene of the tragic event, “it’s still so fresh”.

“As beautiful as this memorial site is and as lovely as the trees and the monument are… certain steps I take, certain areas I enter… my body dates back to that day,” Zimmerman said after the service.

She said now retired Fire Chief Calvin White, who was captain of the Hamlet Fire Department at the time, probably doesn’t know, but she recalls his face being one of the first that she saw when she came across the street.

Imperial Foods survivor Annette Zimmerman reads a poem as Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey watches.

Zimmerman was the first of two survivors to speak at the service, reading a poem she wrote for the occasion:

“… Thirty years of tears. Thirty years of pain.

Thirty years of anguish, but nothing in vain.

The world noticed that day, our voices were heard.

The injustices of this tragedy have had an impact on workplace policies, word for word.

Who will work to die?

Neither him nor her, certainly not me … “

The survivors of Friday’s service included not only the workers who made it, but also family members of those who did not.

Michael Banks was six years old when his mother, Margaret Banks, was killed in the fire.

He also has a younger sister, whose father was previously killed in Winston-Salem, so she never knew either of her parents.

Banks and his sister were raised by their grandparents.

For him, the memorial service provided the closing.

“I think they tried to do everything (they could),” Banks said of first responders at the scene. “I appreciate everything they’ve done for those they saved… I’m fine. I don’t hold a grudge… maybe early in my life I could… but now… closing.

Zimmerman said the service was an emotional roller coaster.

“(I) feel good to see people come out and see people that I haven’t seen in a long time and being able to just reconnect – then seeing these strangers coming in and just acknowledging what happened makes me feel good. “

But, Zimmerman added, when she gets home and settles down to “soak herself in the day, it will be like a ball of tears and shaking and screaming, just because I’ve held her so long.”

Zimmerman still lives in Richmond County and said she visits the site weekly as it is just down the road from her church.

She may not always come out, but she always stops.

“I love to go out and talk to Margaret and Brenda,” Zimmerman said. “They’re not there physically, and I’m sure their bodies were gone by that day, but that was our place.”

Zimmerman said she hoped that what happened that day, 30 years ago, that government officials stick to the changes “and make sure we don’t back down.”

“Because sometimes it feels like we’re just going backwards and if we go backwards, then it was all in vain.”

Eat Just Inc. is about to build a cultured meat factory in Qatar.

The San Franciscan start-up partnered with state-backed Doha Venture Capital (DVC) and the Qatar Free Zones Authority (QFZA) to build the new facility.

Eat Just, best known for its vegan egg products, says Qatar could be the second country to approve the sale of its brand of cutting-edge cultured chicken GOOD Meat.

The plant will be the first cultured meat production facility in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and also marks DVC’s first investment in alternative proteins. The sprawling project could cost over $ 200 million and take more than two years.

“The Qatar-led MENA region is seeing how good leadership in food innovation is for the health of its citizens and the planet we all share. We are deeply grateful to partner with them, ”said Josh Tetrick, Founder and CEO of Eat Just.

“Eat Just is a very innovative company with a bright future,” adds Mohammed Al Abdulla, CEO of DVC. “This partnership is a great example of our commitment to supporting high growth disruptors as they develop technologies that will change the world. “

Qatar could become the second country to grant regulatory approval to Just Eat’s cultured meat. | Just eat

Cultivated meat arrives in Qatar

The QFZA and the Ministry of Public Health say they intend to grant regulatory approval to GOOD Meat in the near future and have already granted an export license for its farmed chicken product, indicating a even more planned future growth.

The new plant will be located in the Umm Alhoul free zone, and there are also plans to add a plant protein processing facility for the production of Just Egg products. Additionally, the GOOD Meat team is currently working to identify potential catering partners in and around Qatar.

“Our free zones are characterized by innovation, technology, accelerated growth and environmental awareness, and Eat Just is a natural partner in these four areas,” said Lim Meng Hui, CEO of QFZA. “We look forward to working with Eat Just as they establish and grow in the region and around the world. “

The future of protein

Cultured meat (also known as clean, cell-based, or lab-grown) is authentic in every sense of the word, but produced in a lab, like the new facility in Qatar, rather than on a farm. It is slaughter free, although it still requires animal muscle cells to begin the production process.

Singapore became the first country in the world to approve its sale in 2020, and since then Eat Just cultured chicken has been launched in restaurants and for home delivery. The company is also currently in talks with US regulators regarding US market approval.

Large existing companies such as Nestlé are also entering the cultured meat business, while venture capitalists anticipate continued growth in alternative proteins in general. According to Markets and markets, the cell-based meat industry could be worth $ 20 million by 2027.

Ford Doubles Lightning Production Target Following Strong Pre-Launch Demand, Auto News, ET Auto https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/ford-doubles-lightning-production-target-following-strong-pre-launch-demand-auto-news-et-auto/ https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/ford-doubles-lightning-production-target-following-strong-pre-launch-demand-auto-news-et-auto/#respond Tue, 24 Aug 2021 02:17:00 +0000 https://coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/ford-doubles-lightning-production-target-following-strong-pre-launch-demand-auto-news-et-auto/ The increase in Lightning’s production target worries some suppliers about the additional investment it will entail, and whether demand for electric pickups will meet Ford’s expectations.

The increase in Lightning’s production target worries some suppliers about the additional investment it will entail, and whether demand for electric pickups will meet Ford’s expectations.

By Ben Klayman and Joseph White

DETROIT: Ford Motor Co has doubled its production target for the F-150 Lightning due to initial strong demand for the full-size electric pickup ahead of its launch in 2022, and the company plans to spend an additional $ 850 million to achieve this goal, several people and vendors familiar with the plans said.

The No.2 U.S. automaker is targeting annual production of more than 80,000 by 2024, up from a previous target of more than 40,000, according to sources, who asked not to be identified. Ford shares rose 1.3% on Monday.

“They were pleasantly surprised by the demand for the Lightning,” one of the sources said of Ford officials.

Industry watchers have questioned whether individual buyers would move away from their gasoline-powered vans for electric models, but commercial customers are pushing for electric trucks and vans to reduce their carbon footprint.

The ramp to the new production target includes plans to build around 15,000 next year after the electric truck’s spring launch and 55,000 in 2023, a second source said. After the launch of the second generation of Lightning in late 2025, the annual target is just under 160,000.

The increase comes on top of the 50% increase announced by Ford last November, the sources said.

The more optimistic goals are driven by strong pre-launch demand for the vehicle, especially from commercial customers, the sources said.

“We are excited about customer demand for the F-150 Lightning and already have 120,000 customer bookings, and we will continue to look for ways to break through the constraints and meet customer demand,” Ford said in a statement. communicated. The company declined to comment further.

Ford and other global automakers are rushing to move their gasoline-powered lines to electric power under pressure from regions like Europe and China to reduce vehicle emissions. US President Joe Biden has asked for $ 174 billion to boost production, sales and infrastructure of electric vehicles in the United States.

In May, Ford announced plans to increase its electrification spending by 2030 by more than a third to more than $ 30 billion. Ford also announced this month plans to form a battery joint venture with South Korean battery maker SK Innovation Co that would open two factories in North America.

Ford’s EV strategy is focused on leveraging its strongest brands, the electric F-150 and Transit minivan joining the Mustang Mach-E SUV. The gasoline F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for more than four decades.

Other automakers who are considering introducing electric pickup trucks include General Motors Co and Tesla Inc, as well as startups Lordstown Motors Corp, Canoo Inc and Rivian. Ford owns a stake in Rivian.

The increase in Lightning’s production target worries some suppliers about the additional investment it will entail, and whether demand for electric pickups will meet Ford’s expectations.

“It really puts suppliers at risk if the volume does not materialize,” said a supplier manager, who asked not to be identified.

The redesigned F-150 Lightning, slated for late 2025, is expected to be the first to use Ford’s new TE1 truck architecture, AutoForecast Solutions has previously said. The first-gen Lightning uses a platform heavily derived from the standard F-150.
