    10 Jul 2018

    If you think that electric-vehicle startups like Tesla would push mainstream automakers out of the EV game, think again.

In its financial reports for the first half of this year, GM confirmed that it’s ramping up production of the electric hatchback by 20 percent thanks to strong demand in the US, Canada, and South Korea.  Global sales of the Bolt have been up more than 40 percent from January through June of this year. Chevy sold 7,858 units of the Bolt just in the US so f...

    08 Jul 2018

    BMW has warned that it may be forced to reduce investment and slash its workforce at its Spartanburg, South Carolina, production facility if President Trump succeeds in imposing a 20 percent tariff on imported EU-built vehicles.

  • New Volvo Factory May Already Be Hurt By Trump Tariffs
    26 Jun 2018

This plant was opened to build the all-new S60 sedan as well as the next-generation XC90 SUV. Volvo was set to hire around 4,000 new employees, but Automotive News Europe reports that these plans might be up in the air due to the fear of the tariffs.  If these tariffs are imposed, it could have a major effect on Volvo’s new factory.

  • People Want Small Cars, But Automakers Stopped Selling Them
    18 Jun 2018

    Consumers have a short memory when it comes to gas prices. When they go down, buyers rush out to trade their small, economical hatchback for a large, three-row SUV. That’s what happened in 2017 when gas prices dropped and small cars were traded into dealers on large cars and trucks. Now, oil prices are rising and Automotive News reports that people want their small cars back.  But due to a lack of supply used prices are currently rising on small cars. Some analysts believe a seasonal uptick is responsible for the increased demand, while others point to industry decisions by maj...
