Best Social Media Channels for Car Dealerships and Other Small Auto Businesses

According to BrandTotal’s report, titled, “Ad Strategy Snapshot: How Auto Brands Use Paid Social,” Facebook is the clear leader. Instagram is second and YouTube is a close third. For small auto dealers, the data in the BrandTotal study provides va...

Driverless Electric Truck Starts Deliveries On Swedish Public Road

Reuters reports that a driverless electric truck has begun daily freight deliveries on a public road in Sweden. Slashdot reader Kiuas shares the report: Robert Falck, the CEO of Swedish start-up Einride, said the company was in partnership talks with major suppliers to help scale production and deliver orders, and the firm did not rule out future tie-ups with large truckmakers.

Volvo parent company Geely's Polestar EV will have its own 200,000 vehicle sales allotment for $7,500 tax incentives apart from Volvo sales.

The improvements and new look were revealed Monday during Google I/O 2019, the annual developer conference. The most noticeable change might be the overall look of Android Auto.

Lynk & Co’s CEO Alain Visser on Reimagining Mobility and Ownership

We discuss the carmaker's contemporary, thoughtful approach Alain Visser seems, at first, like more of a fashion CEO than the head of one of the newer and more interesting automobile brands. His relaxed and open-minded attitude, a sneaky grin and Cole Haans tied with brightly colored shoelaces all set him apart from the other major car brand CEOs reading from teleprompters at the 2019 Shanghai …

What it was like to own and drive a 'no-tech' car

Cars in 2019 are marvels of technology and connectedness. But just a few decades ago, there was very little connected tech in vehicles, prior to the advent of cellphones and the internet. Everything is easier — and safer! — now. But I miss the old days, when you could hit the road and disappear. These days, it's nearly impossible to get into a car and disconnect from the internet. New vehicles typically have some sort of smartphone interface (Apple CarPlay or Android Auto) or enable a certain...

This Volvo P1800ES Is The Only Car You Need To Own

Today, Volvo rivals the likes of BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz — a far cry from the marque’s more humdrum period through the 1980s and 90s. This 1973 Volvo P1800ES offered by Carolina Muscle Cars is a prime example of Swedish style at its hight. In addition to this model’s starring role in the TV show alongside Simon Templar, its eye-catching coupe design really took the fight to its competitors.

How an early love of automobile design led to a marketing career at Nissan: Marketer’s Brief Podcast

When Allyson Witherspoon was growing up she’d sit in the back of her family’s station wagon (yes, the way, way back) with her brothers and check out the details on the cars whizzing past, keeping an eye out for the likes of the Porsche 911. “I just fell in love with design of cars, and particularly the headlamps,” says Witherspoon. While a career in automotive design wasn’t to be, Witherspoon, now VP of marketing communications and media at Nissan North America, has carved out a career on ...

Germany's Bosch powers up hydrogen cells for cars

The world's biggest auto parts maker Bosch said Monday it would work with a Swedish firm to develop key components for hydrogen fuel cells designed to power cars, after backing off building electric batteries. Stuttgart-based Bosch and Powercell Sweden AB -- formerly a subsidiary of carmaker Volvo -- aim to bring the fuel cells to market "in 2022 at the latest". Hydrogen-powered electric vehicles could prove winners compared with their battery-driven cousins for some applications.

Random Excellence: Photographer Unknown

I thought I'd try something a little different for "Random Excellence" today. This isn't an expressive photograph; it's a descriptive one. That's its purpose. It's not "authored" in the sense we usually think of. It's an auction house catalog photograph of an object for sale. For some reason I was struck by this Garry Winogrand comment, at the outset of the new documentary: Winogrand: "Well, what is a photograph?" Background voice: "I don't know. You tell me what they meant to you." Winogrand (...

Lexus is not a luxury car experience

I foolishly leased a Lexus and I regret it. I had bought a very old Lexus in the past and I really enjoyed it. It was everything that I had hoped it would be. It was more luxurious than the Toyota I had and it was always a dream to own one. However since it was so old it was hard to afford the repairs, so I had to trade it in. When I got the cheapest Lexus I could afford the 2015 ES 350 I thought that would be a good choice. However it was nothing but problem after problem. The navigation and m...

Canoo, the electric vehicle startup formed from Faraday Future’s ashes, seeks $200 million

Less than a month after rebranding as Canoo, the startup electric vehicle company formerly known as Evelozcity is on the hunt for $200 million in new capital. The startup, which is backed by a clutch of private individuals and family offices hailing from China, Germany, and Taiwan, is hoping to line up the new capital from some more recognizable names as it finalizes supply deals with vendors, according to a person with knowledge of the company’s plans.

The 2019 New York International Auto Show

2019 is a curious year for the New York International Auto Show – at first look, there are some automakers that are notably absent – BMW, MINI, Volvo, and Mitsubishi skipped the show this year. In automotive parlance, the show is leaner, or more “muscular”. However the space on the show floor was taken up by some fresh new faces, most prominently with Rivian, the U.S.-based company producing electric adventure vehicles with a 400-mile range. There were some significant launches; among them, Hyun...

Volvo’s More Inclusive Safety Developments

The brand's crash-test dummies and new tech continue to make it a pioneer in safety Since Volvo introduced the three-point seatbelt in 1959—which they then shared industry-wide—safety has been core to the brand. Over time, Volvo has pioneered more and more technology, and today cars from Mercedes, Ford, Audi and others have myriad safety systems. There’s ABS that pulses the brakes rather than allows them …

Volvo cars in Europe will be able to warn each other about hazardous road conditions

Volvo is taking technology that allowed some of its vehicles to communicate with each other about hazardous road conditions and expanding it across Europe in an effort to increase safety, the automaker announced Monday. Volvo first introduced its Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert system in 2016 on Volvo’s 90 Series cars. But it was limited to drivers in Sweden and Norway.
