Industry News

Industry won't immediately benefit from Cuba

The recent announcement of an easing in the 54-year embargo of Cuba may be exciting for its possibilities, but that shouldn't leak over to the automotive industry. At least not yet. That's the assessment of Lauren L. Valiente, a lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP, based in Tampa, Fla. "Current law prohibits the export of automobiles and auto parts to Cuba, and the president's announcement included no proposal to ease or change that law," she writes. The five business sectors likely to receive the most immediate benefit include banking, travel, agriculture, residential construction and telecommunications. Valiente wrote that she expects new regulations to be published on an ongoing basis, beginning immediately.

IBM says get ready for 'disruptive' changes

If you think change in the auto industry is already happening, get ready for even more. So says IBM, which has released its new Automotive 2025 Global Study. One of its key findings: there will be even greater personalized driving experiences in the decade ahead. Alexander Scheidt, IBM's Global Automotive Industry leader, said future change could be even more pronounced. "While the automotive industry has seen a resurgence in recent years, a new industry identity is emergingQone that is more open, inclusive and without borders." Scheidt said welcoming this transformation could result in benefits "the like of which haven't been seen since the automated assembly line." Scheidt said there is no significant technical innovation on the horizon that will drive a sea change in consumer auto buying preferences. What is left is connectivity. The IBM study said the supply chain for high level telematics will come increasingly from the IT industry rather than traditional Tier One suppliers.

Industry showing commitment to propulsion

There is a massive commitment from automakers to new propulsion technology, according to a study of the global automobile industry's recent patent activity released by the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters. There has been a huge jump in the five years prior to July 2014, from fewer than 2,000 patents in propulsion technology to nearly 12,000. That sector represented more than any other technology area in the automotive industry and is the only area of patents to reflect a year-over-year growth in the five-year span. From a patent perspective, Toyota is the top innovator (with more than 7,000). Toyota is one of five Japanese companies (the others being Honda, Denso, Seiko Epson, and Mitsubishi) in the top 10. Only one U.S. automaker, General Motors, was in the top 10 (with fewer than 3,000 patents).

Nissan said to be working on 'range anxiety'

It may have been a good year for Nissan's Leaf, but the automaker is said to be working toward a doubling of the somewhat meager range of 84 miles on a full charge. At least the company recognizes the shortfall. "It's fair to recognize we are a bit short," Philippe Klein, Nissan's chief planning officer, told Automotive News. "But for commuting purposes, we are not very far from getting out from range anxiety." Nissan's CEO has said that the next generation of the Leaf will have double the range.

Shelby fans get ready for 8th annual 'Bash'

Team Shelby, the organization dedicated to preserving a sense of community among fans of the late Carroll Shelby's creations, has announced that the eighth annual "Shelby Bash" will roll from Gardena, Calif., to Las Vegas March 5-8. The event honors the 50th anniversary of the 427 Shelby Cobra, Ford Shelby GT350 and FIA World Championship. The party starts with the "Snake Pit Gathering" on March 5 in Gardena, culminating with a party at Shelby American's Heritage Center in Las Vegas. Registration for the Bash is now open at www.teamshelby.com.

Chevy uses drone to show off Detroit stand

Chevrolet took to the sky inside Cobo Center during the North American International Auto Show to show off its mammoth display that included six, 20-foot transparent screens with light and music highlighting stories about the brand's vehicles. A remote control drone made it possible for those who couldn't be there (or couldn't find seating or standing room) to take it all in, including nine chapters, all of it captured on video. Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet, said the automaker's display was "designed to connect with attendees and show how the brand continues to Find New Roads."

A printed car? It's coming (seriously)

It's nowhere near April 1st, so we can safely say this is no joke. To prove it's not only possible but something to look forward to as early as the end of this year, Local Motors, based in Phoenix, showcased the technology behind the idea at DetroitUs North American International Auto Show. Using a combination of recycled ABS plastic and carbon fiber to "deliver" the chassis of a two-seater that can actually be driven, the company used mechanical componentsQlike battery, electrical motors, wiring and suspensionQtaken from Renault's Twizy, a small electric city car, to complete the assembly on the show floor. But Local Motors says the demonstration, which is a collaborative effort with the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proves the concept is viable. It took some 44 hours on a 3D printer to produce the vehicle, dubbed "Strati," the Italian word for "layer."

Plastics: still best way to lightweight

Aluminum may be one of the hottest materials in use by automakers (F-150 anyone?) but plastics shouldn't be overlooked. Indeed, in an article in Plastics News journalist Jim Johnson makes the point that the increased use of plastics in automotive applications "has been on a decades-long and incremental journey of greater acceptance." Plastics now consist of about half the volume of a typical vehicle, wrote Johnson, quoting Frank Macher, chairman and CEO of Continental Structural Plastics Inc. of Auburn Hills. Macher said that will likely continue to grow and for one key reason: the steady rise of U.S. federal mileage standards to 54.5 miles per gallon in 2025. A 10 percent weight savings can translate into a 6 to 8 percent increase in fuel economy, Macher said. "It's an irreversible mandate that cars get lighter and cars get more efficient."

Charlotte: History mingles with new in popular show

When it comes to the magic of an auto show, it's not just the new vehicles automakers are bringing out that appeal to the public.

Just ask ATAE Loretta Allman, who takes care of things at the Charlotte International Auto Show, where attendance was up 8 percent this year.

"We always have something that highlights the history of the automobile, something that's always very popular," she said. As in past years, Allman and her team have reached out to local antique car clubs in Charlotte and this yearUs effort resulted in 30 historic models for the "history of the automobile" display.

They even celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, albeit a year after the candles were blown out.

Included in the celebrations was a first-time display of the Roush Mustang, arguably one of the standout examples of Ford's iconic muscle car.

Also for the first time, the auto show was able to bring Bentley in as an exhibitor, something Allman said was another positive.

So is the Charity Preview Night that the auto show puts on in support of the local "Y" - formerly the YMCA. In its 22 years, the event has raised some $3 million (the last three in support of the "Y").

'We were pretty quiet about it for a long time but we probably give back more than we make on the show.'
-ATAE Loretta Allman,
Charlotte International Auto Show

"The 'Y' is such a great fit for our charity partnership," said Allman. "Not only are they a wonderful organization dedicated to making our neighborhoods better, but they are also located in all the communities our dealers represent. We are proud to support this great event. It’s a real celebration for us."

But the fact that dealers contribute in such a prominent way to the community hasn't always been front and center.

"We were pretty quiet about it for a long time but we probably give back more than we make on the show," she added.

Rounding out the show was a Ride and Drive featuring General Motors' Chevrolet, GMC and Buick brands.

"Unfortunately the convention center doesn't naturally lend itself to the Ride and Drive feature," said Allman. "We don't have driveways around the building but the city gives us parking meter space so it does work out."

And people, of course, have fun at the auto show.

"Our Sunday family day is a big part of that," said Allman. "We have sports team mascots come in and giveaways for the kids."

And then there's the popular free lunch - in the form of a hot dog and Coke - on Thursday and Friday of the show.

"It's all about keeping our visitors happy," added Allman.

Hartford: Borrowing an age-old grocery store technique

Barbara Pudney, who organizes the Connecticut International Auto Show, admits this year she may have borrowed a concept from Stew Leonard's chain of grocery stores, ranked for 10 years now as one of Fortune magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work For.

Famous for providing a quality experience, the stores are set up in something of a "maze" bringing customers in a deliberate flow from entrance to check-out, the idea being to make sure they see all that the retailer has to offer (and eliminate in the process the "forgot the . . . " problem most of us face from time to time).

"We did make the aisles of the show more of a maze," said Pudney. "In the end, people stayed longer which was obviously the intention."

Indeed, in some cases, visitors ended up passing some vehicles more than once. "That helped boost the idea that there was so much to see. And we had no complaints at all. People actually liked it, and it gave them a sense that there was a lot to see at the show, which there was."

'We did make the aisles of the show more of a maze. In the end, people stayed longer which was obviously the intention.'
-Barbara Pudney,
Connecticut International Auto Show

The show featured a "Heels and Wheels" ladies night on Friday (sponsored by Cadillac), with a connection for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center: show goers who brought in an infant item for the hospital received a Pink Cadillac martini. All women arriving after 5 p.m. received $2 off their admission.

Arbonne Cosmetics did makeovers and gave outJskin care advice, and Tastefully Simple offered samples of their delicious food dips.

The Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association, which owns the auto show, made the Children's Medical Center its "charity of choice," with a portion of each ticket going toward a new surgery center in Farmington.

Two Ride and Drive events-by Mazda and ScionQwere also popular at the show.

So was a collection of muscle cars from the 1960s, including a 1967 lime green/neon Challenger, which was displayed alongside its current version in the Dodge display.

"We had a few fun things like that going on this year," said Pudney.

Las Vegas: Thanksgiving, light on tourists, great time for auto show

Thanksgiving in Las Vegas.

It may not be the ideal time to visit one of America's signature destinations, but when it comes to organizing an auto show, well, visitors aren't the target audience.

"We work it for the locals," said Terry Mayfield, executive director of the Southern Nevada Franchise New Car and Truck Dealers Association, one of two associations--the other being the Nevada Auto Dealers Association, headed by ATAE Wayne Frediani.

That means advertising and promoting the event for those who make Las Vegas their home, not the crowds that surge in and out.

Which comes full circle back to Thanksgiving as a pretty smart time to hold an auto show.

"The town is quite open at that time," said Mayfield. "There's not a lot else going on."

Except, of course for the Las Vegas International Auto Show.

'We work it for the locals.'
-Terry Mayfield,
Motor Trend International Auto Show—Las Vegas

One of the auto show's features focused on social media, with visitors encouraged to snap a photo of their "Dream Ride," posting it with the "lvautoshow" hashtag.

Show organizers, including Todd Hovsepian of Motor Trend Auto Shows, gathered those social media posts and one lucky winner got to take away an iPhone 6 for participating.

As is the case with other Motor Trend Auto Shows, visitors to the Las Vegas show could sign up for a free one-year subscription to Motor Trend magazine.

In addition to a Ride and Drive by Ford, visitors also got to see several customized vehicles from the SEMA show (also in Las Vegas but not open to the public). Those included a tricked out Ford Fiesta, courtesy of M2 Motoring, and several other custom builds brought to the show by Team Hybrid and Knights Car Club.

There was also a collection of high-end exotic vehicles from Lamborghini, including the all-new Lamborghini Huracan, courtesy of Lamborghini Las Vegas.

Los Angeles: LA continues to grow with public show

In at least some respects, and like many other of the major auto show events held annually, the Los Angeles Auto Show has developed its own unique personality, a distinctive aura that permeates the event.

No one knows that better than Brendan Flynn, who serves as the show's senior director of marketing and communications.

As Flynn remarked, while the public part of the LA Auto Show is still a huge part of the experience, another key element in the mix is the Connected Car Expo.

'This is really a very important time for the industry and we're seeing manufacturers preparing for a complete restructuring of how they will operate in the future.'
-Brendan Flynn, LA Auto Show

"This is really a very important time for the industry and we're seeing manufacturers preparing for a complete restructuring of how they will operate in the future," said Flynn. "The public part of the LA Auto Show is one of the great opportunities for our visitors to see what's happening at the dealer showroom level in one of the leading luxury, green and aftermarket areas of the nation."

"You're seeing some trade shows in other areas adding a consumer component, but we're going in reverse, developing a trade show component to what is, of course, a consumer event - the LA Auto Show," he said.

Flynn said the change includes seeing the LA Auto Show gradually move toward becoming an international media happening, the difference being the focus is more on what's new from a technology standpoint than the general automotive introductions seen at some of the other large shows.

That doesn't mean the public days for the LA Auto Show are any less important.

Flynn says organizers (ANSA Productions operates the show under the endorsement of the Greater Los Angeles New Car Dealers Association, headed by ATAE Bob Smith) recognize that they are reaching one of the nation's largest car buying markets.

"This is really a very important time for the industry and we're seeing manufacturers preparing for a complete restructuring of how they will operate in the future," said Flynn. "The public part of the LA Auto Show is one of the great opportunities for our visitors to see what's happening at the dealer showroom level in one of the leading luxury, green and aftermarket areas of the nation."

Orlando: Bulging with buyers, attendance is up 15 percent

ATAE Barbara Miller has one word to describe her most recent Central Florida International Auto Show.

"Awesome."

The Thanksgiving weekend experience was one in which buyers were front and center, said Miller, who said attendance was up more than 15 percent over last year.

"People who were there were shopping," said Miller, who made the point that others have been emphasizing for what seems to be years now. "People know they are driving older vehicles that they're going to have to get rid of, and they were here to make a decision on what that new vehicle will be."

Indeed, exit surveys are consistently making that very point - that a high percentage of auto show attendees have every intention of buying within 12 months. Possibly sooner.

Even as Orlando's Orange County Convention Center continues a five-year $187-million capital improvement project that began in 2013, Miller and her team (the show is produced by Motor Trend Auto Shows) deftly find themselves adapting along with the construction.

'People who were there were shopping. They know they are driving older vehicles that they're going to have to get rid of, and they were here to make a decision on what that new vehicle will be.'
-ATAE Barbara Miller,
Central Florida International Auto Show

One of the strategies employed to keep improving the show overall include hosting two exhibit awards - a Best of Show (won by Ford) and the People's Choice (captured by Jeep).

"The Best of Show is chosen as the result of what we might call 'mystery shoppers' - including dealers connected with the show - that look for things like the size of the display, light towers, how the exhibit 'pops,'" added Miller. "They listen to the product specialists talk to potential customers and how they handle visitors."

Miller said she was pleased with the attention the media provided to the auto show this year.

"We had quite a few media showing up," she said. "And there were a lot of news briefs, online stories, and really, an explosion of social media with more 'likes' than we've ever seen before."

One longstanding Orlando tradition has gone by the wayside, however.

While Miller and her team had once hosted a homemade Thanksgiving dinner, with two separate sittings, now the show provides a food ticket to product specialists for every day of the event.

"It helps them out and we don't have to worry about 'no shows' that we would have to pay for regardless of whether someone was there to eat," said Miller, who has been involved the Central Florida New Car Dealers Association since 1979 - and executive director since 1988.

Phoenix: Numbers clearly show impact of show on future sales

When it comes to attendance at the Arizona International Auto Show, ATAE Knox Ramsey is quick to point out just how successful the event is, especially in a market that's different than most others in the country.

"Our paid attendance was up over 8 percent, with overall attendance up 6.5 percent, but it's the paid numbers that we pay particular attention to," said Ramsey, who heads the Valley Auto Dealers Association in Phoenix.

But what's particularly important, notes Ramsey, are the percentages of auto show visitors who say they intend to make a purchase decision within the next year.

The latest number: 44 percent.

And then there's a possibly even more interesting stat: the 72 percent of attendees who say the auto show influenced their ultimate decision.

So how do you reach those potential auto show visitors?

In Phoenix, don't overlook newspapers, still a strong media presence (unlike many other markets).

The numbers Ramsey offers are clear on that point.

"About 22 percent of our visitors saw newspaper ads for the auto show, which was identical to the TV ads we ran, so they're neck and neck," said Ramsey.

Once at the auto show, visitors enjoyed what he called a "very robust Road Test Experience," pointing out a new label that he hopes catches on across the country.

"Road Test is something that we think is a more appropriate handle for what we're doing," said Ramsey.

'We have more than 200 vehicles now that are on the road every day. It's an enduring type of advertising that promotes our visibility in the community. We like the idea that we're serving an important need for organizations and dealers are benefitting from the visibility as well.'
ATAE Knox Ramsey,
Arizona International Auto Show

Also key to this year's auto show was the presence of social media, something Ramsey and his team have been working hard to cultivate, notably through a hashtag photo campaign that resulted in at least 400 participants.

Steady media coverage, starting in the early morning and including Thanksgiving morning, also helped with attendance during the first two days of the show.

Ramsey says keeping both the auto show - and dealer involvement in charitable activities - top of mind is something he tries to keep front and center throughout the year.

Notably, one tactic that continues to work is a vehicle donation program that is at least a dozen years running.

"We have our logo on the back and side, emphasizing that the vehicle has been donated by the Valley Auto Dealers Association," noted Ramsey. "We have more than 200 vehicles now that are on the road every day. It's an enduring type of advertising that promotes our visibility in the community. We like the idea that we're serving an important need for organizations and dealers are benefitting from the visibility as well."
