The 2019 VW GTI hot hatchback has picked up yet another accolade besides being a perennial enthusiast favorite: the IIHS Top Safety Pick award. The Hyundai Elantra GT Sport also earned a Top Safety Pick, and the Subaru WRX earned a Top Safety Pick+. The GTI's available automatic emergency braking system also earned top marks for preventing a crash at speeds up to 25 mph. The GTI's available LED headlights also were rated as "Acceptable," which was enough for Top Safety Pick.
Seven new cars have received a full five-star rating in the latest Euro NCAP crash tests. Of these, five are available in the United States: the Audi E-Tron, Lexus UX, Toyota Corolla, RAV4 and Mazda3. The Mazda3 hatchback was the fourth car in Euro NCAP history to reach an adult occupant protection score of 98%, after the Volvo V40 and XC60 and the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
The United Auto Workers (UAW) union said on Wednesday it filed a new petition for a union election at Volkswagen AG's Chattanooga, Tennessee plant, after the U.S. agency in charge of enforcing labor law dismissed a previous one. Earlier today, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) asked workers at the Chattanooga plant to refile their petition, a day after three Democratic U.S. senators urged the German automaker's U.S. unit to drop efforts to delay the election.
Three Democratic U.S. senators on Tuesday questioned a decision by Volkswagen AG's U.S. unit to delay a union election for workers at its Tennessee assembly plant. Earlier this month, the largest German automaker won its bid to put off a union vote for 1,700 workers at the Chattanooga plant until its challenge to a smaller United Auto Workers bargaining unit at the factory is settled. The National Labor Relations Board, in a 2-1 decision on May 3, granted Volkswagen's motion to stay an election petition filed by some of its workers last month.
Volkswagen AG truck brand Scania said on Tuesday it will invest 1.4 billion reais ($344.14 million) to modernize its Brazilian factory in Sao Bernardo do Campo, an industrial city near Sao Paulo. The investment in the historic center of Brazil's auto industry follows Ford Motor Co's decision to exit the heavy truck business in South America and shut down its plant in the same city, which could benefit the remaining players in the sector.
China is also attracting much investment, with companies keen to increase their share of the world's largest car market and keep up with the country's push toward electric vehicles. Following are summaries of investments and restructuring efforts made by major automakers in the United States and China since 2017. Toyota Motor Corp has pledged to invest almost $13 billion in the United States between 2017 and 2021 to boost manufacturing capacity and jobs.
Volkswagen just revealed a bunch of new "concept cars" it plans on taking to SoWo 2019 (Southern Wörthersee). The European Experience in Savannah, GA is going to be where Volkswagen displays these unique designs/tuner cars, including everything from a Rabbit Confetti GTI to a lifted Tiguan. VW Golf Alltrack Combi ConceptThis wagon started life as a normal Alltrack before putting on a front bumper from the Golf GTE.
If you're looking for a three-row family crossover that boasts a ton space at a reasonable price, the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas needs to be on your list. The interior is enormous, boasting enough passenger space to comfortably fit even 6-footers in all three rows. In other words, the Atlas does a great job of providing the basics for a growing family.
It looks like Volkswagen (inadvertently?) just announced a small crossover for the U.S. at an event in Argentina. The crossover is reportedly going to be called the Tarek — not to be confused with the Tarok Concept truck — and will sit below the Tiguan in size. This news comes to us via Autoblog Argentina (unaffiliated with Autoblog) and was pointed out here in a report from Motor1.
Automobiles from the European Union and Japan won’t be hit with U.S. tariffs for at least six months after President Donald Trump decided Friday to delay levies in favor of pursuing negotiations.
Bentley's 100th anniversary might be remembered more for the book that celebrates the milestone more than the cars. The carmaker worked with Opus, a "luxury publisher" with the tagline "Greatness immortalized greatly," on a tome that tells the story of the last 100 years. The limited-edition result of their work weighs roughly 66.5 pounds, is filled with exclusives, can be customized like a Bentley, and can cost more than a Bentley.
The report looks at how this fleet will transform transportation as China’s 421,000 electric buses join those millions of personal EVs. As the expanding electric fleet drives electricity demand up, it will also erode demand for millions of barrels of oil. BloombergNEF tracks more than $100 billion in investment between just four automakers — Volkswagen AG, Hyundai Kia Automotive Group, Chongqing Changan Automobile Co Ltd. and Daimler AG — with VW alone planning more than $50 billion.
The carmaker entered two vintage Beetles into this year's Mille Miglia, both of them reproductions of Beetles that competed in 1954 and 1956. Volkswagen reconstructed gentleman racer Paul-Ernst Strähle's 1948 Pretzel Beetle that he raced in the 1954 Mille Miglia.
Playing the long game before unveiling the new Flying Spur, Bentley's published the second teaser for the new "luxury grand touring sedan." The last one homed in on the retracting "Flying B hood" ornament. This one focuses on what Bentley says is "an automotive world-first," three-dimensional textured leather lining the cabin.
PARIS (Reuters) - European car sales fell 0.5% in April, the main regional industry group said on Friday, led by sharper monthly declines for Nissan, Ford and Volkswagen. Registrations fell to 1.345 million ...
The 2019 Volkswagen Atlas S 2.0T is the bottom rung on the Atlas ladder. The cloth seats are manually operated, the steering wheel is urethane and there's only one USB port. Every other Atlas has the 3.6-liter V6 good for 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, which is on the low end for the segment.
Volkswagen (VWAGY) to build two electric vehicle manufacturing plants in China to catch up with Tesla (TSLA).
Volkswagen is selling a portion of its heavy duty truck unit to outside investors. It is an attempt to unlock hidden value and improve the company’s valuation multiple. It is a good idea, one that U.S.-based auto makers should try.
Two hours west of London, at an abandoned Royal Air Force base, a major electric car initiative has begun… by none other than Dyson.Most of you know Dyson for its vacuums, hand dryers and fans. But I, for one, have been waiting for its electric vehicle (EV) for years -- ever since it made a key acquisition that I'll get to in a moment.Then in November, we found out that Dyson will build an auto plant in Singapore. All in all, Dyson is looking to invest $2.7 billion in EVs. Now, at the old Hullavington airfield, the company will research and test its EV prototypes right at home in the UK.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhile the EV field is currently dominated by the usual players -- the United States, Germany, Japan, and now China -- Britain is looking to get in on the action as well. In fact, it wants to go 100% electric: The UK is considering a moratorium on new cars with gas or diesel engines. (Norway already made that call, and France, Germany, India, and China are mulling it over, too.)2040 is the most likely date for Britain to go all-electric, while 2035 is a possibility, and 2030 is what Sir James Dyson is pushing. * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market Dyson's electric car sounds just as sleek and high-tech as you'd expect. And it plans to deliver it as soon as 2021. While the model is still in development, Dyson's initial patent images (like the one above) show: * An SUV-crossover design, with three rows of seating * Lower-than-normal seating, for better aerodynamics * Narrower/taller wheels… both of which would boost its driving range.Range is crucial to any EV maker -- and especially one that also aspires to make its flagship products (the fancy vacuum cleaners) powered 100% by battery.In 2015, Dyson acquired a Michigan startup that was working on next-generation batteries. They've since parted ways, but nonetheless, we've known since 2017 that Dyson is eager to get in on the new technology.For a vacuum cleaner, strong battery power that allows for cordless design is a nice convenience. For an electric car, a strong battery is a must. You can afford to finish vacuuming later, but you can't afford to be stuck on the side of the road -- and you can't afford to spend all day charging the thing either.Lithium-ion batteries have been the standard since the 1980s, believe it or not, when Sony started putting them in its camcorders. After they made it into Apple's iPhone in 2007, the rest was history. But the next generation of batteries will solve two major problems:* Lithium-ion batteries rely on materials like cobalt… which is mined from conflict zones (mainly in the Democratic Republic of Congo) that are struggling to keep up with demand.* And the liquid inside is not only toxic - but also flammable. In 2016, the battery in Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 was exploding. You couldn't bring the phone on a flight. And smoking, flaming, or exploding batteries have caused a few hundred other incidents in airplanes, too. In just five years (from 2012 to 2017), 49 batteries were recalled in products ranging from laptops to power tools.No company wants that. And the current leaders in automotives are dedicating serious cash to solving the problem.BMW (OTCMKTS:BMWYY) is shopping around for a supplier of next-generation batteries for its electric car, the i3. Others, like Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY), are looking to develop their own. Rumor has it that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is, too, after it acquired a battery startup in February.All of this revolves around one specific technology that's safer AND more powerful. Some call it the "Jesus Battery" because, compared to the old lithium-ion technology, this battery is nothing short of miraculous. The Key to Cashing In on the Battery RevolutionAs an investor, there's one thing I particularly like to see when I buy into a tech trend: patents.Dyson doesn't just have the smooth-talking billionaire CEO you see in its TV commercials. It has a number of impressive patents across its business. The electric SUV-crossover is just the latest -- and surely not the last.And when it comes to the "Jesus Battery," one tiny company in southeast England holds some key patents.Automakers like Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) are relying on this company for its electric car models. Yet the company is totally off the radar - for now.So, you'll want to check this out before everyone else starts rushing in. I've got a full presentation on the investment opportunity in this "Jesus Battery," which you can view for free by clicking here.Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a "paradigm shift" in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: "The battery that could change the world."This breakthrough device could change how you get around… how you communicate with others… even the way you think about the world.Folks who get in on this breakthrough now, BEFORE it's rolled out on a mass scale, will have the chance to be a part of perhaps the single largest wealth-creation event in the last 25 years.I can share with you what I've learned and show you how to profit.

European auto makers are trading higher because tariffs on European car imports could be delayed. There may be an announcement this weekend.
Trump faces a May 18 deadline over how to proceed with his threat to slap a tariff of as much as 25% on imported cars and parts in the name of U.S. national security. GM deferred comment on the tariff decision delay to industry representatives, while Ford declined to comment and Fiat Chrysler couldn’t be immediately reached.
The Audi lineup is nearing its complete redesign with the newly unveiled 2020 Audi A4. The company revealed the updated luxury sedan and wagon in all its forms including regular A4, A4 Allroad and S4. The headlights are more angular on the grille side, and they receive aggressive LED daytime running lights that look like angry eyebrows.
The electric vehicle revolution is coming, but it won’t be driven by the U.S. Instead, China will be at the forefront. The shift is already happening in China, which is the world’s largest automobile market, with 23 million cars sold in 2018. Many of them are buying electric cars.
