S&P Global Mobility | Fuel For Thought

Average transaction prices for new vehicles are through the roof. But affordability has also been crimped by many automakers shifting away from traditional entry-level segments, both in the US and Europe.

S&P Global Mobility | Fuel For Thought

In this episode of Fuel for Thought we are going to expand the conversation of electrification. Rosy sales projections aside, global adoption of battery-electric vehicles still faces huge obstacles to cross the chasm, an updated forecast from S&P Global Mobility shows.

In this episode of Fuel for Thought, S&P Global Mobility experts discuss auto safety systems. As more ADAS systems are installed in new vehicles, consumers, automakers and repair shops will have to ensure cars stay safe after modifications and repairs are performed.  A slight modification or accident to a vehicle could make its driver-assist and crash-avoidance technology not work properly – or at all.

Nowhere was this looming trend more evident than on the NADA show floor in Dallas, where thousands of dealers, vendors, and automaker reps came together to discuss the near- and long-term future of automotive...
