A threat by the U.S. government to impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on imported auto parts could hit consumers in unexpected ways: higher repair costs, insurance premiums and even the theft of more cars for their parts, the industry said. U.S. President Donald Trump's administration has launched an investigation into whether auto imports pose a national security threat and threatened to slap the tariffs on cars from the European Union and elsewhere.
A group representing major automakers will tell the U.S. Commerce Department on Thursday that imposing tariffs of 25 percent on imported cars and parts would raise the price of U.S. vehicles by $83 billion annually and would cost hundreds of thousands of jobs. The Trump administration in May launched an investigation into whether imported vehicles and parts pose a national security threat and U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to quickly impose tariffs of 20 or 25 percent.
MILAN/LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - European shares hit a one-month high on Wednesday, supported by currency weakness and a rally in tech stocks following well-received earnings updates and a record close for the Nasdaq. The tech index rose 2.5 percent with Ericsson up 8.5 percent after the mobile telecom equipment maker unexpectedly swung to a modest operating profit, while semiconductor bellwether ASML jumped 8.1 percent on forecast-beating results. The upbeat remarks from Powell, who will continue his testimony to Congress later on Wednesday, lifted the dollar, which in turn helped shares in Europe's export-oriented sectors and Germany's DAX rise.
Theresa May only narrowly avoided a catastrophic defeat on her Brexit legislation, but after an intense day in Parliament, the atmosphere at a Tory backbenchers’ meeting suggests she’s out of immediate danger.

Sales growth of electric and plug-in hybrid cars has dimmed across the European Union’s major markets during the first half of this year because of limited driving ranges and a patchy charging network.

European consumer authorities criticised Volkswagen on Tuesday for failing to guarantee that repairs after the Dieselgate scandal would not affect cars' performance. EU officials have pressured VW to do more to compensate European customers after it admitted to U.S. regulators in September 2015 that it had cheated on emissions tests there using software installed in as many as 11 million diesel vehicles sold worldwide - the majority of them in Europe. Agencies from the EU's 28 member states and the European Union executive reiterated concerns that the German auto giant has not done enough to respond to a request it improve consumer information on the repairs, speed up the process and pledge to fix any problems arising after the repair.

The Audi RS3 and TT RS are well-liked here at the Autoblog office, thanks in no small part to their 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engines. The company just released some off-the-shelf tunes for both the RS3 and TT RS, and, while they won't make the cars as fast as that Dodge Demon-rivalling RS3 we covered recently, they're still impressive.
U.S. Justice Department officials on Wednesday announced the establishment of an anti-fraud task force intended to deter fraud and coordinate investigations to avoid "piling on," where multiple agencies probe the same alleged misconduct.
