  • SUVs and Pick-up Trucks Continue To Drive US Car Sales
    04 Jun 2018

    Two Detroit automakers on Friday reported an increase in U.S. auto sales for May as demand for sport-utility vehicles and pickup trucks continues to buoy sales despite rising gas prices. May is often the biggest sales month of the year for auto sales, with Memorial Day sales driving car shoppers to dealerships to kick off the summer selling season.  SUVs and pickup trucks accounted for about 67% of sales in May, according to J.D. Power, the highest level ever for May. The richer mix of SUVs and pickup trucks, which carry higher prices than passenger cars, drove the average transactio...

  • Car Ownership Will Probably Dip by 2025
    22 May 2018

     Most auto industry execs think that half of today’s car owners will lose interest in owning a car by 2025. Of the nearly 1,000 execs surveyed via KPMG for Business Insider Intelligence, 60 percent agree, while 22 disagree, and 8 percent strongly disagree.  That’s not very representative because it targets people who already see the value of a car and ignores millennials who may never own a vehicle. While there is some mixed opinion about millennial attitudes toward car ownership. That generation is buying fewer cars than previous generations at their age.  ...

  • 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. But it's a more democratic version of that concept. T...

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

    The average U.S. light-vehicle dealership managed their fixed operations department very well, considering their final repair and costs figures. In 2017, total repair orders written by that average dealership were flat, and so was the total parts inventory it carried — after both had risen at a double-digit clip the year before.That dealership also added more technicians — with the total rising to 19 per store from 16 in 2016 and 15 in 2015 — which helped to boost total parts and service sales, despite the repair-order slowdown. In addition, the total parts and service revenu...
