Peter Schmidt Editor In Chief AID NewsletterSilicon Autobahn - No pain, no gain, but will it fly?

"Given German carmakers’ decision to boost the number of genuinely high-power BEV recharging stations in key European locations, is there reason to believe that anything will change? By close of next year, thanks to their efforts, there’s hope that electric car drivers will be able to drive from Berlin to Barcelona and Prague to Paris without the dreaded range anxiety. But whether that cuts any ice with Joe Public, interested at best in a battery powered Golf, Leaf or possibly Zoe, remains an altogether different question

Brazil car sales OCtober VW Up! AID NewsletterLingering gloom as Brazil’s car sales continue to plummet

Latin America’s biggest car market, still seen as a car sales dynamo during the heydays of the BRIC market era, first came to a screeching halt in 2014 and sales have continued to spiral downwards ever since. Judged from latest car sales data, and already ten months through the current year, there is little prospect of a quick turnaround, keeping this year’s frail-looking Brazilian car market on course for the lowest annual car sales in a decade

Mercedes 4Matic 4x4 sales trends Western EuropeIn Europe, demand for four driven wheels has never been higher

The rip-roaring sales gains from 4WD passenger cars, a sector made up not only of trendy and fast-selling SUV-Crossovers but also of conventional cars from 4x4 experts Subaru plus conventionally styled prestige sector saloons, estates and even coupes from mainly Audi, BMW and Mercedes, continued to pick up where they left off from last year’s record result. That’s driven home by AID compiled figures showing that Europe’s still buzzing 4WD car segment remains on course for a sixth successive all time record

You can’t but feel pity for Audi’s strategists. With the scope for unique technological individuality of its cars shrinking both progressively and inevitably, Audi’s strategic thinkers came up with a plausible plan capable of breathing some vital new life, albeit in different form, into its Vorsprung durch Technik mantra

West European Electric car sales trends October 2016 AID NewsletterOctober’s electric car market runs out of charge in Europe

Europe’s electric car market is faring a great deal worse than hoped only a year ago. Despite generous ongoing purchase and user incentives, a steady rise in electric car choice, a gradual uplift in real-life driving range and continuing electric car infrastructure improvements, European consumers’ appetite for today’s electric cars (BEVs) still remains a great deal weaker than the industry had hoped. That’s the stark message from AID’s exclusively compiled October electric car registration figures for the whole of Western Europe
