Gratitude for Royal Honor

On hearing the news, Uchida said: “I am deeply humbled and sincerely thankful to receive this honor from His Majesty King Charles III. The relationship between Nissan and the UK began 40 years ago, and today it continues to be very strong.

“The honor of this award goes to our Nissan employees around the world and in the UK, where Nissan is proud to design, engineer and build vehicles. I thank them for all their efforts and for inspiring with their dedication and innovation.”

Nissan established its UK production site in Sunderland in 1984, before starting production in 1986. Its growth and importance as an export facility for Nissan saw Sunderland become the biggest plant in the history of the UK car industry. With international design and R&F facilities in London and Cranfield, a parts centre in Lutterworth and UK Sales and Marketing operations in Rickmansworth, Nissan today has 7,000 UK employees and supports 30,000 jobs in the UK supply chain.

In 2023 Uchida joined the team in Sunderland to confirm three future Nissan electric vehicles (EVs) were to be manufactured in the UK, the next generation Nissan LEAF and future electric versions of the Nissan Qashqai and Nissan Juke, as part of the Nissan EV36Zero blueprint for EV manufacturing.

Cadillac Unveils SOLLEI Concept: A Vision of Bespoke Luxury

Today, Cadillac introduced the SOLLEI concept vehicle, the ultimate design expression of a coach-built luxury electric convertible. This imaginative design exercise pushes the boundaries of future bespoke commissions, tailored to reflect the unique passions and interests of its clientele.

SOLLEI conceptualizes an all-electric, 2+2 convertible equipped with the brand’s signature 55-inch pillar-to-pillar screen, awe-inspiring interior, exterior lighting chorography for arrival and departure, and intuitive front and rear command console.

Defined in its name sun ('SOL') and leisure ('LEI'), SOLLEI represents Cadillac’s optimistic inspiration for an open-air, leisurely lifestyle.

“SOLLEI reimagines the discovery of travel, envisioning a personalized driving experience that connects one with the natural world around them,” said Erin Crossley, design director, Cadillac. “The concept celebrates Cadillac’s pedigree of elegant convertibles in a modern form by cultivating high luxury through design expressions and experiences.”

SOLLEI is also Cadillac’s first concept vehicle to incorporate an innovative bio-based material developed in collaboration with MycoWorks. Used in the charging mats on the console and the door map pockets, Fine Mycelium™ by MycoWorks is ushering in a new era of luxury materials grown from mycelium (the renewable root structure of mushrooms). The material reflects Cadillac’s mission to pioneer renewable automotive resources.
