  • Audi made an ad in China comparing a wife to a used car
    20 Jul 2017

    In an Audi commercial from China, a mother-in-law interrupts a wedding ceremony to inspect the bride, checking whether she's up to standard. The older woman grabs the bride's nose and ears, pinches her lower lip and peers at her teeth and tongue. The bride gets an OK – along with an extra warning to cover up her cleavage. It's an ad from Ogilvy & Mather Beijing promoting used Audi cars that have been checked out and officially certified for resale.   But the ad is getting pushback on social media for comparing women to merchandise -- specifically, to used cars t...

  • BMW vows to win back the crown Mercedes just took from it
    12 Jul 2017

    As demand for the new E-class and SUVs rose, Mercedes-Benz took the lead in the luxury-car sales segment, its sales rose up to 11% in June. As we know for years, BMW, Audi and Mercedes have always been competitors to each other, being three most well-known and trusted German automakers. For so many years the first sales spot between them has been taken by BMW, and only know Mercedes was able to outrun it.  Sales of BMW brand vehicles rose 2 percent to 192,873 last month, while third-placed Audi saw sales rise 1 percent to 170,650. Through June, Mercedes sold ...

    03 Jul 2017

    President Donald Trump told his counterpart Moon Jae-in during talks at the White House that he wants fair shake for U.S. automakers in South Korea, so they could sell more cars over there. He said he will press for changes to the current free-trade agreement to reduce the U.S. trade deficit with South Korea. He told reporters he was encouraged by “Moon’s assurances that he will work to create a level playing field” for U.S. exporters.  Tensions with North Korea also figured prominently in the discussions as Trump signaled he would press for a tougher stance after t...

  • U.S. auto market down, but not poisoned!
    27 Jun 2017

    By saying the U.S. auto market goes down specialists literally ignore the fact that a shakeout normally requires a recession and rising unemployment to poison the market’s health, which by the way isn’t visible yet. Saying the consumer lending is currently in crisis is a wrong path, just like the worries that the U.S. car sales are about to dive by between 1 million to 4 million annually over the next 3 years.  The downward spiral can be saved by another government “cash for clunkers” subsidies. A stretched consumer, falling used prices, and technological obso...

  • Audi’s plans for improving its U.S. sales
    13 Jun 2017

    While McLaren is truly happy with its sales and doesn’t plan on switching to the SUV market, Audi is already thinking of adding more sport utility vehicles to its U.S. lineup. The carmaker revealed that it still has niches and segments which might bring to better sales in US.   Crosssovers will be a major part of Audi’s U.S. lineup and Audi is pushing to add their own full-size Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class rival since there is demand in this side of the Atlantic for an SUV that large. As for sedans, every automaker, Audi isn’t seeing the same kind of sales numbers a...
