  • The internal combustion engine disappears from the new-car options
    08 Nov 2017

    The range of the average battery-electric family crossover has increased to nearly 400 miles on a single charge, after years of continued incremental improvements in lithium-based batteries, combined with extreme weight savings from lightweight materials, a new generation of superefficient electric motors, and advances in automated driving that reduce energy waste.  The new generation of fast chargers enables vehicles with depleted battery packs to be 80 percent recharged in the time it takes to down a cup of Tim Horton's coffee and doughnut, about five minutes. Even exotic sport...

  • Here's how Japanese automakers stay dominant in the Japanese market
    07 Nov 2017

    You might not know that, but in Japan the relationship between the car dealer and the buyer is a much better one than here, in the U.S.. The last time Shujiro Urata wanted to buy a new car in Japan, his phone happened to ring. It was the local Toyota dealer on the phone, asking him if he was thinking about buying a new car. When he replied in the affirmative, the dealer and a coworker showed up at Urata’s doorstep an hour later with two demo cars, which Urata and his wife test-drove around the neighborhood. The Uratas decided to buy a car from the dealer. The dealer also handles their ca...

    05 Nov 2017

    Heading into the final 2 months of the year, we’ve got some records on the line for the U.S. automotive industry. Japanese automakers are battling for the titles of America’s best selling cars and crossovers, and the overall industry could record a third straight 17 million-unit year for the first time ever. The overall industry this year has shown some restraint on incentives, but spending has steadily increased amid leveling average transaction prices. Expect incentive spending for the year to be up 11 percent through October to an average of $3,624 per vehicle, includi...

  • Where will drivers recharge their EVs?
    30 Oct 2017

    If you want the growth of electric sales to happen, you need to provide customers with reliable public charging infrastructure. Today in the U.S. there are only 16,457 EV charging stations, with 44,999 outlets in operation, mostly on the coasts, but also including Tesla's network of Superchargers along major intercity corridors and other superfast charging stations. The presence and visibility of these stations should help build confidence among consumers thinking about buying battery EVs that they will be able to charge wherever they want. But once people live with an EV, they often ...

  • BMW wants to make sure its autonomous cars can hit high speeds
    29 Oct 2017

    Cadillac and Audi might already tour their semiautonomous driving systems, but BMW is taking some more time before rolling out a high-speed self-driving system. BMW is spending the next couple of years working with suppliers and testing prototypes to ensure the automaker can introduce a system that can operate at high speeds in most highway driving situations, with the added benefit of being a backup operator in fully automated vehicles.  BMW's system won't be available until 2021, which puts it several years behind competitors. BMW chose to wait until it could introduce a sy...
