In the hotseat
Bolloré assumes office on September 10, and will have his task cut out from Day 1.
Jaguar Land Rover recorded a GBP 469 million net loss in FY20, which was preceded by a massive GBP 3.32 billion net loss in FY19. Its retail sales stood at 508,659 vehicles in FY20, down 12.1 percent year-on-year, including a significant impact on sales in the fourth quarter as well as other market challenges.
The company’s China joint venture (CJLR) recorded its first loss in five years in FY20.
One blip in a quick rise to the top
Bolloré, who had travelled to India in mid-2019 to unveil the Renault Triber, had raised questions over the Renault-Nissan alliance’s internal investigation of former boss Carlos Ghosn.
The soft-spoken auto industry veteran was allegedly ousted from Renault after Nissan concluded that his ‘concerns were unfounded and were based, for the most part, on inaccurate information and speculation’. Bolloré had described the manoeuvring against him as a “strong-arm coup”.
Before the unceremonious exit though, Bolloré had swiftly climbed the career ladder. He began his career at French tyremaking company Michelin, where he went on to become vice-president of the Aircraft business. Bolloré later joined auto parts manufacturer Faurecia before eventually joining Groupe Renault and becoming its CEO within six years.
At Renault, Bolloré was responsible for accelerating the company’s EV adoption. Industry observers note that Renault’s electric cars are beginning to do well in Europe. The carmaker may launch its first EV in India in 2021.
The experience will come in more than handy at JLR.
The JLR challenge
Bolloré’s appointment at Jaguar Land Rover comes amid a massive belt-tightening exercise by the two British brands, which began after they recorded their second consecutive annual loss last year.
To bring in efficiencies JLR is going aggressively after costs and cutting back on undeclared but unviable projects.
Tata Motors has also decided to scale back capital expenditure at JLR by 45 percent, to GBP 2.5 billion, in FY21.Project Charge (now Charge+) is claimed to have achieved cost, profit and cash-flow improvements of GBP 600 million in Q4 and is on course for the target of GBP 2 billion by March 2021.
However, it turns out that the display can refresh even faster, up to 160Hz to be precise. XDA-Developers discovered that the ROG Phone 3 has a hidden option to enable the phone to refresh at 160 hertz. XDA-Developers found an Android Debug Bridge (ABD) command that enables the screen to run at an experimental 160Hz.
Activating the 160Hz refresh rate on your ROG Phone 3 will require a basic ABD knowledge. You can head to the link here to enable the 160Hz refresh rate on the ROG Phone 3. The report also confirms that the panel indeed runs on 160Hz after it is enabled.
It is worth noting that this is still experimental, and the ROG Phone 3 may not be fully optimized to run on the 160Hz refresh rate. So, if you plan on tinkering with it, we suggested that you proceed with caution and at your own risk.
