  • Waymo won’t be spending millions on assembly plants
    15 May 2018

    Everyone’s wondering what would a Google-branded vehicle be like. And it turns out that Waymo won’t be spending millions spending billions on assembly plants and the development of its own vehicles and platforms. The company is partnering with automakers to use their cars and trucks to showcase its technology brand and develop a lineup of vehicles.The brand-building approach takes a page from the old Saleen and Shelby works, tuners and stylists of limited-edition, high-performance vehicles based on Ford Mustangs and pickups.

  • Better Cost Controls for Auto Dealers in 2018
    07 May 2018

    25 Apr 2018

Analysts think GM will report first-quarter earnings of $1.28 per share, on average, down from $1.75 in the first quarter of 2017. They expect GM's revenue to come in at $34.6 billion, down from $41.2 billion a year ago.The reason of the huge drop is that GM sold its European subsidiary, Opel AG, in a transaction that closed early in the third quarter of 2017.
