New cars 2015
Updated 3:28 am, Wednesday, March 28, 2018 BRUSSELS (AP) — All new cars in the European Union will need to have from next week a special system that automatically calls the emergency services in case of an accident. Erik Jonnaert, the secretary general of the ACEA car manufacturers' association, said Wednesday that the eCall system "has the potential to save many lives by shortening the reaction time of emergency services." Sensors in the car automatically transmit its location, the exact time and direction it was headed in when the accident happens. The eCall system was approved by the 28-nation EU in 2015 and the three-year transition period ends this weekend. … [Read more...] about New cars in EU will need automatic emergency call function
By Brian O'Connell/MainStreet.com There is a perfect storm of sorts at work in the automotive market.

Updated 5:58 pm, Friday, March 9, 2018 SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Tesla is on track to start selling new electric vehicles in Utah under a deal approved by state lawmakers. Utah lawmakers approved a proposal Thursday allowing the company to sell sleek new cars for the first time at a $3 million showroom it built before the state denied them a license in 2015. Utah officials cited a law banning car manufacturers from owning dealerships. Tesla pushed back, saying it had to sell its own cars because its business depends on convincing customers its electric cars are better traditional gas-engine cars. The Utah Supreme Court sided with the state and car dealers who argued that they were just as capable of selling electric vehicles.
