Description : This essay sheds light on the future of the automotive industry, identifies the types of cars of the future, and elucidates why gasoline powered vehicles do not warrant the cost. Moreover, why plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the utmost best type of vehicles is delineated, why electric vehicles do not warrant the cost is explicated and the myriad of problems associated with buying an electric vehicle are demystified in this essay. Furthermore, the criteria for how to determine if purchasing a car is worth the investment is revealed and how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to finance your vehicle purchase is expounded upon in this essay. The future of the automotive industry will usher in unprecedented changes that will profoundly revolutionize the automotive industry. In other words, the upcoming changes to the automotive industry will be commensurate with the automotive technological advancements in the digital era that will reshape the driving experience. It stands to preponderantly reason that in the coming decades fully autonomous vehicles will be available for personal transportation uses on the global vehicle market. This revolutionary change will allow vehicle owners to work enroute to their destinations. Moreover, there will no longer be a need for human drivers, thus displacing more workforce participants. Customer demand in the ride sharing economy will also grow as the cost disparity between vehicle ownership and accessing ride sharing services further narrows due to the elimination of the human driver and unprecedented technological advancements to vehicles that render ride sharing services ever more affordable to procure. "Overall global car sales will continue to grow, but the annual growth rate is expected to drop from the 3.6 percent over the last five years to around 2 percent by 2030. This drop will be largely driven by macroeconomic factors and the rise of new mobility services such as car sharing and e-hailing" (Gao, Kaas, Mohr, & Wee, 2016) services. It also stands to reason that companies that offer ride sharing services will help drive automobile sales in the coming decades as they increase their fleets of autonomous vehicles. "A detailed analysis suggests that dense areas with a large, established vehicle base are fertile ground for these new mobility services, and many cities and suburbs of Europe and North America fit this profile. New mobility services may result in a decline of private-vehicle sales, but this decline is likely to be offset by increased sales in shared vehicles that need to be replaced more often due to higher utilization and related wear and tear" (Gao, Kaas, Mohr, & Wee, 2016). Autonomous vehicles will still offer tremendous utility to city dwellers in the coming years as most cities egregiously fail to satisfy public transportation needs and abstain from future-proofing their eroding transportation infrastructure. It is projected that almost 70% of the global "population will reside in urban areas by 2050" ("UN: 68 percent,"). This migration to urban areas will render car ownership all the more unappealing. While paying to utilize public transportation systems and ride sharing services can be expensive, it may culminates in being far less expensive than paying for monthly car loan payments, monthly parking fees, vehicle registration fees, high auto insurance rates, and high maintenance repair costs. Vehicles profusely depreciates each and every year at the car owner's expense and can be very expensive to procure, maintain, retain, and operate. Even though most public transportation systems are not modernized nor streamlined to satisfy growing public transportation needs, they at least help curb the city dweller's need for vehicle ownership. It stands to therefore reason that the annual growth rate of vehicle sales will be preordained to decline in the coming decades as more and more customers live in cities and do not experience the need to own cars.

Description : This comprehensive account of the past, present and future of the automobile examines the key trends, key technologies and key players involved in the race to develop clean, environmentally friendly vehicles that are affordable and that do not compromise on safety or design. Undertaking a rigorous interrogation of our global dependency on oil, the author demonstrates just how unwise and unnecessary this is in light of current developments such as the fuel cell revolution and the increasing viability of hybrid cars, which use both petrol and electricity - innovations that could signal a new era of clean, sustainable energy. The arguments put forward draw on support from an eclectic range of sources - including industry insiders, scientists, economists and environmentalists - to make for an enlightening read.

Description : At the time of the U.S.-Japan auto conferences in March 1983, the hoped-for economic recovery as manifested in auto sales had revealed itself quite modestly. Three months later, the indicators were more robust and certainly long overdue for those whose livelihood depends on the health of the industry--some of whom are university professors. With Japanese import restrictions in place until March 1984 and drastically reduced break-even points for domestic manufactures, rising consumer demand holds great promise for the industry. The rapidly rising stock prices of the auto-makers captures well the sense of heightened optimism, as do the various forecasts for improved profits.While the news is certainly welcome, it nevertheless should be greeted with caution. As Mr. Perkins noted at the conference, we have a tendency to forget things very quickly. If we have a boom market this year, there is a good chance that a lot of things we learned will be forgotten.To put the matter differently and more bluntly, with growing prosperity there is the risk that management will fall back into old habits, making impossible the achievement of sustained quality and productivity improvement. Similarly, the commitment to develop cooperative relations with workers and suppliers will weaken. The union will be under membership pressure to retrieve concessions rather than to take the longer-term view. This longer-term view recognizes that up-front increases and adherence to existing work rules increasingly come at the sacrifice of future job security. Government policymakers will turn their attention away from the industry. This may not mean a great deal given how weakly focused their attentions has been during the last three years and how mixed and contradictory government auto policies have been for over a decade.

Description : The car - once everybody's dream and a key status symbol in most countries and cultures - has been extensively questioned in the last decades and in the last few years particularly. Urbanisation, traffic congestion, pollution problems, heavy reliance on scarce oil supplies, safety issues and ever-growing competition, have all provided significant business challenges for the automotive industry. Many car manufacturers have had to fundamentally rethink their design, brand and marketing strategies to thrive in a savvy, consumer-led culture, and markets that are becoming increasingly restrictive in size and opportunity. Auto Brand provides a roadmap to branding and marketing success in the automotive industry from a leading industry expert and features: • Case studies on major car brands personally conducted by the author including: Audi, BMW, Holden, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, Porsche, Saab, Seat, Skoda, Vauxhall, Volkswagen, and Volvo • The findings from 100 interviews conducted with CEOs, marketing managers, sales managers, sales people, after sales managers at all levels from the manufacturer level to small rural dealers, as well as industry experts, policy makers, free-stranding repair shops and professional organizations • The results of a new international study on car buyer behaviour based on 4,700 survey answers Auto Brand is essential reading for marketing managers, sales managers, CEOs, development managers and dealers in all types of companies in the car industry including: manufacturers, national sales companies/importers, dealers, finance companies, insurance companies, free-standing repair shop channels and more. The first book to specifically address how to deal with the challenges facing the automotive industry it illustrates how companies can take advantage of new technologies, adapt to emerging trends in consumer behaviour, improve profitability and build even more successful brands in the future.

Description : The automotive industry is still one of the world's largest manufacturing sectors, but it suffers from being very technology-focused as well as being relatively short-term focused. There is little emphasis within the industry and its consultancy and analyst supply network on the broader social and economic impacts of automobility and of the sector that provides it. The Global Automotive Industry addresses this need and is a first port of call for any academic, official or consultant wanting an overview of the state of the industry. An international team of specialist researchers, both from academia and business, review and analyse the key issues that make vehicle manufacturing still the world’s premier manufacturing sector, closely tied in with the fortunes of both established and newly emerging economies. In doing so, it covers issues related to manufacturing, both established practices as well as new developments; issues relating to distribution, marketing and retail, vehicle technologies and regulatory trends; and, crucially, labour practices and the people who build cars. In all this it explains both how the current situation arose and also likely future trajectories both in terms of social and regulatory trends, as the technological, marketing and labour practice responses to those, leading in many cases to the development of new business models. Key features Provides a global overview of the automotive industry, covering its current state and considering future challenges Contains contributions from international specialists in the automotive sector Presents current research and sets this in an historical and broader industry context Covers threats to the industry, including globalization, economic and environmental sustainability The Global Automotive Industry is a must-have reference for researchers and practitioners in the automotive industry and is an excellent source of information for business schools, governments, and graduate and undergraduate students in automotive engineering.

Description : This book is an initial assessment of the fast changing oil outlook and its implications for the future of the automobile. Until recently, there was little reason to doubt that the automobile's role would continue to expand for the forseeable future. But that assumption no longer seems so certain. The automobile and the sprawling global auto industry are entering perhaps the most difficult period in their history. Their difficulties stem chiefly from the twin problems of growing precariousness in the world's oil supplies and rapidly rising oil prices.

Description : Today, we're married to our cars. But life behind the wheel of an automobile didn't come naturally to Americans. Crooked politicians, unscrupulous businessmen, burning streetcars, and convoluted tax shenanigans are a few of the players in this gripping tale of corruption, greed, and endless miles of asphalt. In Andy Singer's accessible, scandalous tale of motordom, comics, text, and historic photographs tell the story of the rise of the U.S. highway system and the corresponding demise of rail and public transportation. He also explores how we can ditch the car and rebuild a functional transportation system that can bring wealth, happiness, and freedom.

Description : The Great Race recounts the exciting story of a century-long battle among automakers for market share, profit, and technological dominance—and the thrilling race to build the car of the future. The world’s great manufacturing juggernaut—the $3 trillion automotive industry—is in the throes of a revolution. Its future will include cars Henry Ford and Karl Benz could scarcely imagine. They will drive themselves, won’t consume oil, and will come in radical shapes and sizes. But the path to that future is fraught. The top contenders are two traditional manufacturing giants, the US and Japan, and a newcomer, China. Team America has a powerful and little-known weapon in its arsenal: a small group of technology buffs and regulators from California. The story of why and how these men and women could shape the future—how you move, how you work, how you live on Earth—is an unexpected tale filled with unforgettable characters: a scorned chemistry professor, a South African visionary who went for broke, an ambitious Chinese ex-pat, a quixotic Japanese nuclear engineer, and a string of billion-dollar wagers by governments and corporations. “To explain the scramble for the next-generation auto—and the roles played in that race by governments, auto makers, venture capitalists, environmentalists, and private inventors—comes Levi Tillemann’s The Great Race…Mr. Tillemann seems ideally cast to guide us through the big ideas percolating in the world’s far-flung workshops and labs” (The Wall Street Journal). His account is incisive and riveting, explaining how America bounced back in this global contest and what it will take to command the industrial future.
