  • New ‘People Officer’ Arrives at Tumultuous Time for Tesla
    For some reason, the term “Chief People Officer” is at the same time cringe-inducing and rational. That’s what Tesla calls its head of HR. “Human Resources,” of course, is another cringe-inducing term that could only have come from the mid-century expansion of the federal public service. It’s an awful thing. At Tesla, the face of […]

  • Consumer Reports Restores Half of Tesla’s Missing Points After Braking Update
    Tesla Motors has won back some of Consumer Reports’ respect after being criticised for failing to include automatic emergency braking in recently built vehicles. The absence of the safety system really irked CR, resulting in a points deduction on all of the brand’s existing models. Tesla said it was abnormal to see vehicles of the same […]

  • Nissan Will Kill Off Juke in North America, Get Its Kicks Elsewhere
    When you burst out guns blazing from the get-go, it’s sometimes difficult to follow up with an impressive sequel. Such is the case with the Juke, which will have no second generation — at least not in North America. According to two independent sources familiar with Nissan’s future product plans who spoke with TTAC, the Japanese […]

  • Lawsuit Accuses GM of Using Defeat Devices in Duramax Diesel Pickups
    Suing automakers over diesel emissions violations is quickly on its way to becoming passé. Since Volkswagen admitted to installing software that circumvented pollution laws, regulators have been on the hunt for their next big target. While it might make their efforts seem like a bit of a witch hunt, there’s good reason to be on […]

  • Former Product Chief Nair to Head Ford North America; Armstrong Moves Up
    After Monday’s corporate shakeup at Ford Motor Company, which saw former CEO Mark Fields replaced with Jim Hackett and the elevation of Joe Hinrichs and Jim Farley up company ranks, the automaker has announced more appointments.

  • Overseas Demand Boosts Ford Mustang as Domestic Sales Wane
    The Ford Mustang, a nameplate actually deserving of the word “iconic,” is no less vulnerable to the whims of the market than any other model. As domestic light vehicle demand in North America cools off, so have Mustang sales. Fortunately for Ford, the automaker took it upon itself to fling Mustangs to every corner of […]

  • Faraday Future Says LeEco’s U.S. Layoffs Won’t Affect Day-to-day Operations
    This week, China’s LeEco canned the majority of its North American workforce and we assumed the layoffs spelled trouble for its business interests at Faraday Future. Not so, claims the automotive startup. In an emailed response to our earlier article, Faraday says LeEco’s decision to massively scale back its U.S. operations will not affect its […]

  • Another New Volkswagen 2.0T Debuts in 2018 Tiguan, Prepares to Replace 1.8T in Passat and Beetle
    Complete with an alternate Miller Cycle that Volkswagen is calling the “Budack Cycle,” the German automaker has evolved its ubiquitous EA888 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine for installation in the second-generation 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. Horsepower? For a 2.0T, it’s rather unimpressive at only 184 ponies. But Volkswagen isn’t caught up in horsepower per liter figures. Instead, Volkswagen’s own introduction […]

  • Here’s Some Evidence At Least One Rival Automaker Approved Of Volkswagen USA’s Post-Emissions Scandal Handling
    Vinay Shahani, a former decade-long Nissan employee, has just been poached from Volkswagen of America by Toyota. Shahani was Volkswagen’s U.S. vice president in charge of marketing, responsible for cementing a cohesive product message after the eruption of the now infamous diesel emissions scandal that broke in September 2015. “Things are definitely difficult for the […]
