American workers were concerned because any work stoppage in the Canadian plants would have caused problems, like parts shortages, immediately.
"We will continue to work around the clock and are optimistic that a deal can be reached before the deadline, however investment and product must part of any agreement," said Unifor National Presid
According to the General Motors release, the automaker is voluntarily recalling the trucks, SUVs and sedans because the software can go into test mode and signal the airbags to not inflate.
Unifor, which used to be called the CAW until 2013, says the negotiations with GM in Canada will set the pattern for its talks with Ford and Fiat-Chrysler.
With yesterday’s announcement by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it had expanded its investigation into devices made by ARC of Knoxville, Tenn., a new page has been
General Motors Vice President of Design Ed Welburn has spent a long, successful career with the American automaker, having joined the company as an intern back in 1971 before being hired as GM’s fi
This week the 2016 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon’s Duramax Diesel fuel economy numbers were approved by the EPA after a very close analysis and revealed by GM.
Windshield wipers seem like a pretty mundane piece of apparatus.
As the old ‘50s cop-dramas used to say, “We can do this the easy way, or the hard way…” That seems to be the message Fiat Chrysler Automobiles U.S. (FCA US) is trying to send General Motors.
If you follow the American auto industry, there is a good chance that you are familiar with the fact that manual transmissions are slowly vanishing from the lineups of almost every major automaker.
Ford Motor Company took a big risk in using aluminum to craft the bodies of the 2015 Ford F150 pickup and while there are still plenty of critics who aren’t sold on the long term viability of the a
This trend can be used to benchmark a car model vs its competitors within the same price range. There will always be outliers, but in general this trend works as a benchmark. As an example, if the MSRP of a car is 15 K and it sells 1,000 cars that is a failure. If it sells 500,000 cars, the car would be is a resounding success.
There are always qualifiers which have to be taken into consideration, these are either limited production, supply constrained, some other economic mechanism, or new model year/change in style mechanism at play.
The Chevy Bolt is a smaller car with presumably a smaller battery. Pumping that current is not a good idea; Tesla gets away with because of battery size. Sure the Bolt could be designed to throttle back the charge, but then you lose some advantage to the quick charge.
Second issue is battery chemistry. Not all lithium batteries are created equal and they. Tesla uses NCA. The Bolt, if the whispers are to be believed, is supposed to use NCM.
From what I've read NCM degrades faster than NCA.
No other automaker besides Tesla has jumped in to announce a 200 mile BEV. Ford and Chrysler had been non-committal, Toyota and Honda are going hydrogen, and the Europeans believe more on PHEVs, though BMW and Audi may have "concepts" for the future. Even the current BEV market leader, Nissan, hasn't announced anything about its next-generation LEAF or if it will incorporate a 200 mile battery.
