“I regret to announce that today, July 15, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19,” the DPWH head posted.

Following the announcement, Villar was reportedly absent when his agency inaugurated the final section of the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway, which was also set on July 15, Wednesday

His agency said Villar will also not attend the scheduled inspection of the new terminal building of the Clark International Airport in Pampanga.

Villar was recently appointed as the country's "isolation czar" during a Palace press briefing in Malacañang on Monday, July 13. With the role, Villar was expected to lead the country's response to the pandemic.

The irony of the isolation czar needing to isolate himself was not lost on many of those who reported the Secretary’s recent affliction.

In the same Malacañang briefing, Villar reported that the government has a total of 55,416 available beds reserved for COVID-19 patients spread across the different existing quarantine facilities all over in the country.

He added that they were looking to build 50 additional quarantine facilities at different locations the country where the pandemic continues to spread.

<![CDATA[Reduced tollbooth numbers at Bocaue Toll Plaza causes traffic snarl]]> https://www.carmudi.com.ph/journal/reduced-tollbooth-numbers-at-bocaue-toll-plaza-causes-traffic-snarl/ The North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) Corporation extended its apologies to the public after its decision to reduce the number of tollbooths accepting cash transactions at its Bocaue Southbound Toll Plaza led to hour-long vehicle queues at the location.

You may say that NLEx had no choice but to reduce the cash tollbooths after many of their tellers were forced to undergo mandatory quarantine.

NLEx conducts regular COVID-19 testing of its employees due to the very nature of their work. Although the company did not report how many of its tellers tested positive for the disease, the mandatory quarantine on its employees compelled the company to close 16 of its cash tollbooths at the Bocaue site.

The heavy traffic at the cash tollbooths prompted NLEx to remind vehicle owners to register their units up with the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system to reduce their queue times at the tollbooth plazas.

According to the company, only 25 to 30 percent of frequent NLEx users have RFID.

<![CDATA[Volkswagen ID.3 to hit dealerships next week]]> https://www.carmudi.com.ph/journal/volkswagen-id-3-to-hit-dealerships-next-week/ It has been four weeks since Volkswagen started accepting pre-orders for the limited ID.3 1ST, and the company has now decided to open the ordering system to the public next Monday, July 20, 2020.

Seven pre-configured ID.3 models will be made available at various dealerships all across Europe, along with the appropriate charging equipment. All seven models will be eligible for the maximum state subsidy of €9,480 (Php 535,999) granted as an environmental bonus in Germany. Subsidies will also be available for the ID.3 in many other European countries.

Volkswagen ID 3

“We are overwhelmed by the loyalty shown by so many pre-bookers. A large majority of these customers have already ordered their 1ST from dealers. Other customers, who have had to wait for the start of production sales, will now be able to order. From July 20, they can choose between seven preconfigured ID.3 models with the most popular features at their dealerships,” shares Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales.

"I am convinced that e-mobility will now make its breakthrough,” added Stackmann. "Our model names like Family, Style, Tech and Tour already reveal that we will have the right ID.3 for everyone – at an attractive price. This way, we are realizing our vision of enabling emission free mobility for all.”

Six out of seven models are based on the basic model ID.3 ProPerformance. With a 58-kWh battery, it has a range of up to 420 km on a single charge with the 150 kW Performance rear-wheel-drive system. The drive system delivers a maximum torque of 310 Nm, and can propel the car from a standstill to 60 km/h in just 3.4 seconds.

The  base model ID.3 ProPerformance starts at €35,574.95 (Php 2 million), but the pricing can easily get higher with optional equipment packages. Each model comes with a navigation system for range-optimized navigation, Adaptive Cruise Control and the “Comfort” telephony function with inductive charging on board.

The ID.3 “Life” is priced at  €37,787.72 (Php 2.13 million), and is intended for customers who want an economical entry-level product without sacrificing comfort. The comfort package for this variant includes heated steering wheel and seats, and two additional USB-C ports for easy charging.

The “Style” model is for customers who value an eye-catching design. It starts at €40,946.04 (Php 2.3 million), and comes with the major design package upgrades such as matrix LED headlamps, LED tail lights with dynamic swiping function, and a panoramic glass roof.

To get a little bit of everything, the ID.3 “Business” is the car to purchase. The design package it comes with includes matrix LED headlamps and tinted windows, comfort package and assistant package with rear-view camera and the “Keyless Access” locking system all for €41,287.22 or Php 2.33 million.

The ID.3 “Family” is a vehicle that offers a both comfort and convenience with its major design package that includes matrix LED headlamps and large panoramic glass roof, the major comfort package with 2-zone “Air Care” air conditioning system and the assistant package with rear-view camera and “Keyless Access” for €42,305.87 (Php 2.4 million). 

The ID.3 “Tech” variant targets the tech-crazed market, with a major design package that includes matrix LED headlamps, major assistant package with Travel Assist, Side Assist and Emergency Assist as well as major infotainment package including a Heads-up Display and Premium Sound package all for €44,810 (Php 2.53 million). 

Volkswagen ID 3

The ID.3 (Max) retails for €43,680.32 (Php 2.46 million) and offers the absolute maximum of everything: design, technology, sport, and comfort. It comes equipped with all the equipment packages available, along with an electric 12-way massage seat, progressive steering and DCC (Dynamic Cruise Control) on board.

The 7th pre-configured model is the ID.3 “Tour," which can also be ordered starting on July 20. This particular variant is based on the four-seat ProS model that allows for a bigger battery (77 kWh) with a range of up to 550 km, and it starts at €40,936.31 or Php 2.31 million. The Tour variant also comes with a Heads-up Display and Sound package, matrix LED headlamps, comfort package, 12-way massage seat and assistant package with all driver assistance systems included, together with 19-inch aluminum wheels.

Deliveries for all seven models will start later this year, in October. There is no news yet if these vehicles will ever come to the Philippines, but we'll be sure to let you know.

<![CDATA[Nissan unveils all-new Ariya]]> https://www.carmudi.com.ph/journal/nissan-unveils-all-new-ariya/ Global automotive giant Nissan has officially unveiled its electric crossover Nissan Ariya designed to carry more load with less carbon footprint.

Introduced via digital reveal, the Nissan Ariya unveiling was headed by CEO Makoto Uchida and Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta. The event was livestreamed from the new Nissan Pavilion in Yokohama.

ariya

The world had a first glimpse of the Nissan Ariya last year at CES 2020, together with the Pro-Pilot golf ball and the electric ice cream van.   

The Nissan Ariya has a full-electric powertrain and provides customers multiple configurations (which includes two-wheel-drive and e-4ORCE all-wheel-drive versions, as well as two different battery sizes) to meet their individual needs.

The e-4ORCE AWD is meant to dish out the performance capabilities of the Nissan Ariya, balancing power with all-weather capability, thanks to its twin electric motors.

Ariya Gupta

With full juice, the Nissan Ariya is said to cover some 610 kilometers (based on Japan WLTC cycle), making it a perfect ride for both the daily commute and weekend road trips.

The Nissan Ariya is fitted with advance technological features to make driving a whole lot easier.

The world of comfort and convenience begins with the ProPILOT 2.0 advanced driver assistance system and the ProPILOT Remote Park and e-Pedal features. Aside from that, the Ariya has Nissan’s Safety Shield system—which is a myriad list of security features such as Intelligent Around View Monitor, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking and Rear Automatic Emergency Braking technology.

Updating the driver-assistance program is ultra-convenient as it has over-the-air firmware update capabilities. The Nissan Ariya also includes Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant to simplify driving experience even more.

Ariya

“The Nissan Ariya is a truly beautiful and remarkable car,” Gupta said. “It enables you to go further, easier and in comfort. The Ariya is designed to impress, and to express what Nissan strives for – making our customers’ lives better.”

Nissan’s designers took advantage of the car’s new EV platform, which allows for a flat floor. Compact climate control components further allow the Ariya the most spacious cabin in its class. The lounge-like interior, featuring Zero Gravity seats, provides a welcoming and comfortable environment for driver and passengers alike.

“The Ariya enhances driving excitement, ensures high levels of comfort and confidence and heightens the joy of connecting,” Gupta said. “It’s more than just a great EV crossover, it’s a great vehicle. It’s a true force of wonder, and it’s coming soon.”

The Nissan Ariya, targeted to be in the Japan market by middle of next year, will retail at 5 million yen (P2.305 million). After Japan, it will be offered in Europe, North America and China by end of 2021.
