  • Ralph Lauren Corp. experience helps shape auto retail strategies
    25 Apr 2017

    Growing up in suburban Detroit, dealer Katie Bowman Coleman lived too far from her dad's rural dealership to work summers there. Instead she sold clothes, which interested her far more than cars anyway. Coleman, now president of Bowman Chevrolet in Clarkston, Mich, says she watched her dad go through a lot of hard knocks in the car business. That was influential to making her think she was not sure she wanted to go into that business. But she was always interested in retail and she liked fashion.  So Coleman pursued a fashion career that led her to New York and Australia. But in ...

    20 Apr 2017

  • Toyota claims the U.S. auto market has peaked
    13 Apr 2017

    Toyota Motor Corp. executive claims that the U.S. auto market has peaked and will shrink this year, with manufacturers using unprecedented incentives to support passenger cars through slumping demand. The president of Toyota’s U.S. sales unit, Bob Carter, says that industrywide deliveries may decline to as low as 17 million vehicles from last year’s record of about 17.5 million. A rapid shift in demand toward sport utility vehicles at the expense of sedans is the main factor driving automakers’ heavy discounts.  Once the industry starts to get their pipelines lined ...

  • Tesla rivals GM as the most valuable US car maker
    11 Apr 2017

    Tesla has leapfrogged General Motors to become America’s most valuable carmaker, riding a wave of optimism about the electric vehicle company despite its continuing losses.

The big question is whether or not Tesla can back up that value with raw sales number...
