Industry News

Distracted driving involved in 60% of teen crashes

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Study, after sorting through nearly 1,700 videos retrieved from in-vehicle recorders installed on cars driven by teens, has determined that distraction played a role in nearly 60 percent of crashes. This presents a wide disparity from findings by NHTSA, which had previously believed distraction accounted for only 14 percent of teen crashes. In the meantime, Toyota and Discovery Education have teamed up to tackle the issue with a contest challenging teens to create short videos to inspire their friends to avoid risky behavior behind the wheel. Several auto shows throughout the country are also featuring the Toyota teen driving safety initiative. More information on the initiative can be found at www.TeenDrive365.com.

Shell Eco-Marathon winner gets 3,400 mpg

Talk about sipping fuel. A team from the University of Toronto took top honors in the Shell Eco-marathon Americas competition with a vehicle that gets 3,400 miles per gallon, edging out Quebec's Laval University. The April 9-12 event, held in Detroit, saw more than 100 competitors from high schools and colleges in five countries. Second place winner Laval typically places among the top three in the Shell competition and won last year's event in Houston.

Chrysler execs playing up possibility of more consolidation

Fiat Chrysler executives seem to be talking up the idea of industry consolidation. Company Chairman John Elkann, who is also chair of Expor SpA, which owns 29.2 percent of Fiat Chrysler and 44.3 percent of its voting rights, told shareholders he hopes the process "will be driven by reason and common sense rather than crisis." At the same time, Sergio Marchionne, who put together the 2014 merger of Fiat and Chrysler, has been a vocal proponent of industry consolidation, citing high costs for developing clean technology and self-driving features. But both Marchionne and Elkann have said Fiat Chrysler is strong enough to stand on its own and doesn't need another deal.

Nissan could sell 50,000 Leafs

Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, told media at the New York International Auto Show that the automaker has capacity to sell as many as 50,000 units of its all-electric Leaf vehicle in 2015. But Ghosn said that both the federal and local governments will have to do a better job of ensuring there are better networks for charging plug-in vehicles like the Leaf. Last year, Nissan increased sales of the Leaf by 34 percent in the U.S., reaching 30,200 units. This year's sales have slipped, however, which could make the 50,000 target a stretch.

GM wants to boost production in Texas

According to documents filed with the city of Arlington, Texas, GM is looking at an expansion of a plant that produces its large sport-utility vehicles. GM has said the plant, which makes the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade, is running full out to keep up with demand. The vehicles are in great demand in the Middle East and Africa and nearly one-third of the plant's output is exported. GM is asking Arlington for a tax abatement of 80 percent for 10 years on an expanded plant as well as to waive building permit and development fees.

Stop/Start technology to be on 55% of vehicles by 2024

Navigant Research, a company specializing in advanced green technologies, says some 55 percent of vehicles sold by 2024 will feature Stop/Start systems, which allow the engine to stop automatically instead of idling. When the driver hits the accelerator, the vehicle engine will restart. The technology is "gradually evolving into one piece of a multi-faceted approach to improving fuel economy in light duty vehicles," said David Alexander, senior research analyst with Navigant. North America is seen as a target market for the technology, which was embraced some time ago in Europe. Manufacturers are now refining system performance to overcome the initial resistance of consumers.

Hyundai hires former Autoweek editor

Jonathan Wong, a former road test editor for Detroit-based Autoweek, has been named manager of Midwest product public relations for Hyundai. Wong, who started his job April 20, is the automaker's contact for journalists based in the region and handles product communications for Hyundai's Sonata family and its crossovers, including Santa Fe and Tucson. He is based at Hyundai America's Technical Center facility in Superior Township, Mich.

Chicago: Tons of TV coverage plus social media penetration drives show

What happens when you cut a day out of the schedule of a major event like the Chicago Auto Show?

ATAE Dave Sloan of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association discovered that removing a day, the result of Presidents' Day falling inside the dates of the show rather than the end, didn't impact attendance, which was up 7 percent over last year.

Perhaps that one day's impact was countered by a blitzkrieg of sorts when it came to television coverage of the show: some seven TV specials that were broadcast from Chicago's sprawling McCormick Center.

And even though the show has an official relationship with Chicago's ABC affiliate, the former "official" outlet (NBC) did its own auto show special anyway.

Additional stations like WGN-TV and its MotorWeek program were focused on the show, as were Spanish language Telemundo and Univision.

Bottom line: "We had a very successful media preview of the show," said Sloan, who continues to gather data on the actual impact of the show.

In fact, early numbers were so "off the charts" that Sloan and his team went back to one of the exhibitors to confirm the numbers coincided with what was being seen on the floor. "The numbers seemed almost unbelievable, but they did turn out to be an accurate reflection of what exhibitors were seeing," said Sloan.

Just as importantly, exhibitors were very pleased with the impact had on their own marketing efforts.

"We got great feedback," said Sloan, a former industry public relations executive, who worked for General Motors, Ford and American Motors before joining the dealer association in 1993. He became general manager of the show in 2010.

The show's media preview saw some 18 world premieres, including the Kia Trail'ster concept as well as Acura's RDX, the Chevrolet Equinox, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Avalon.

Social media continued to be emphasized, said Sloan.

"We provided free Wi-Fi coverage to visitors and our official Chicago Auto Show app had more than 33,000 downloads during the run of the show," he added. "That was easily double the number from last year."

Another interesting advance in social networking and smartphone technology included a feature that would message attendees when they approached certain vehicle displays.

Some 22,500 tweets during Media Preview is said to have reached 30 million users, with tweets and Instagram posts finding their way on a giant social media wall.

"Our social media strategy is simple: to encourage our thousands of fans and attendees to share their personal experiences of the nation's largest auto show through comments, pictures and video," said Sloan.

Cleveland: Favorable weather drives purchase-ready crowds

ATAE Lou Vitantonio Jr., who runs the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers Association, may not be a gambler, but he did win a couple of times when it comes to this season's Cleveland Auto Show.

"On the weather side, which is obviously not something we can control, we did very well," said Vitantonio.

There was also a bit of a scheduling dance as the auto show moved to March in an effort to stay clear of a date conflict with the Chicago Auto Show.

That helped secure another win for Vitantonio.

"We were able to secure very good displays and product as a result," he said.

Add to the equation some six outdoor Ride and Drive events and Vitantonio is very pleased.

Also included in the show were the Ram truck and Camp Jeep features, both traditional crowd attractions.

The Cleveland show featured a separate area for commercial vehicles, and new for this year's event was a display of classics--featuring some 100 vehicles followed by a live auction.

Half of the 45 vehicles that were up for auction ended up selling at the show.

Since Cleveland is known as a sports city, there's little surprise that the show featured a number of players from the various professional teams, something that Vitantonio said also helps to drive traffic, which was up about 2.5 percent over last year.

What may be even more significant is the fact that some 26 percent of the Cleveland area auto market attended the show.

"This is clearly an important show in that it gives the customer an opportunity to see the vehicles all in one location and in a no-pressure environment," said Vitantonio. "And when it's over, they are on their way to our dealers to make deals."

Kansas City: Every day car giveaway becomes singular marketing message

If there's one thing ATAE Larry Carl isn't bashful about, it's change.

Last year, for example, he organized a charity event preview for the Kansas City Auto Show that featured standup legend Jay Leno raising $100,000 for the Children's Mercy Hospital in about three minutes.

Recognizing that topping that sort of thing wouldn't be possible, Carl, who heads the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Kansas City, stirred things up with a car giveaway that is still being talked about.

"We gave away cars," said Carl, referring to an on-site giveaway that saw seven vehicles in all going to auto show attendees--one each on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, two each on Saturday and Sunday.

The vehicles in most cases were provided through the manufacturers' ad group and included the Ford Mustang, Chrysler 200, Mercedes-Benz CLA, Honda Fit, Chevy Malibu, Mazda 3, and Toyota Camry.

Billed as the "Big Car Giveaway," the promotion became the cornerstone of marketing for the show.

"It was our key message in all our advertising and promotion," said Carl.

At the show, attendees registered using iPads, which gave Carl and his team the ability to capture e-mail addresses for ongoing promotional purposes.

And it worked.

"We had 40 percent of attendees registered to win a car," he said.

In a game show environment that would have made Vanna White proud, the car giveaway promotion became a 15-minute show-within-a-show piece of entertainment that was held in a central part of the Bartle Hall/Kansas City Convention Center.

Local celebrity emcees were involved and the dealer association donated $5,000 to the celebrity's charity of choice.

"It was flawlessly executed," said Carl. "And we did that seven times. It was truly a unique and memorable way of driving interest in the show."

Carl, who said the market in the Kansas City area seems to closely follow national sales trends, is still in the "auto show afterglow" as dealers typically experience a 10-12 percent lift in sales during the six to 12 weeks following the event.

"It really does validate how important the auto show is as a way to drive business," he said.

In recent years, he added, he's noticed a shift in how auto show attendees seem to view the experience.

"There's an obvious increase in their level of engagement," he said. "They're here to do their homework and it's showing at the dealership level."

Pittsburgh: Despite infrastructure issues, show hits near-record revenues

ATAE John Putzier of the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Association, which owns the Pittsburgh Auto Show, certainly wasn't expecting the Fort Pitt Tunnel and Liberty Bridge to be closed the weekend of this season's event.

Both the tunnel and bridge, key parts of infrastructure used by motorists entering and leaving the downtown Pittsburgh area, were blocked.

The result, said Putzier, was not exactly devastating to the show from an attendance perspective. But it certainly didn't help.

"We had good attendance, in fact our charity preview event was a record, but having Pitt Tunnel closed hurt us for the rest of the show," said Putzier.

The rub was that work wasn't actually being done on that weekend closure.

Still, the auto show had the second best revenue in its history, largely the effect of eliminating a deep discount strategy that the dealer group felt had "cheapened" the show over the years.

Also helpful at this year's event was a promotional strategy with McDonald's Restaurants that saw some three million coupons circulated throughout the western Pennsylvania market.

In the end, some 11 percent of show attendees entered with a $2 discount coupon in their hands.

At the show, Putzier and his team were able to bring in several high-end "super cars," including a $2-million McLaren P1, said to be one of the most exotic vehicles to be seen, as well as three Lamborghini vehicles: the Aventador, Huracan, and Gallarado.

Ferrari also brought an exhibit to the show, the overall result being "mile long" lines, said Putzier.

"People clamor to see these types of vehicles," he noted.

A continuing strong market in Pittsburgh was reflected in the overall feel of the show.

Another auto show highlight was the charity premier, sponsored by the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, an event that will run July 10-19. The event, which raised a record $360,000, supports the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Alleghany Valley School, which provides lifelong opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Putzier said a steady flow of traffic to the show, in spite of the access issues, made for an overall successful event.

Spokane: After more than 20 years, producer hands over reins of show

Kip Nedved refers to his first foray into running the Spokane International Auto Show as a "baptism of fire."

The show manager at that time, in 1994, had died suddenly and Nedved, an advertising consultant, was asked to step in just a few weeks before the show was set to run.

He's been doing it ever since, working alongside the Spokane New Car Dealers Association, which is headed by ATAE Don Kellman.

But Nedved himself is retiring, having in recent years basically "retired" his other clients as well.

Now he'll help advise Kellman going forward.

Nedved recalled those early years at the auto show helm as being one of conquering an initial fear of the unknown.

"I'd worked with the dealers back as early as the early 80s," he said. "Once I figured out what needed to be done, it ran relatively smoothly."

The most recent Spokane show, which is unusual in that it is a true selling show, included a customary VIP Preview that serves as an "invitation only" celebration.

Staffed by local dealerships, the show was described by Nedved as having "incredibly steady" traffic throughout its three days.

"We had waves of people," he added. "Once they started it didn't stop. There's obviously a strong interest among the public for buying new cars."

Toledo: Three snowstorms later, show still an important feature

We've all heard about (and sometimes experienced) the impact weather can have on an auto show.

The most recent example comes from Marie Gilman, who in her job with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association, manages the Toledo Show.

With most auto shows reporting either single digit or at least even attendance this season, Toledo, which was hit three times with severe winter storms involving more than a foot of snow, lost ground: a 6 percent decline.

"Certainly, it was frustrating," said Gilman, who has been manager of marketing and events since graduating from Ohio State in 2012.

In that short time, however, she's learned how to maximize interest in shows like Toledo--she also manages shows in Columbus and Dayton--through innovative partnerships like the one she had with the Toledo Zoo.

"We had people coming in and asking about the animals right through the show," said Gilman. "It was good for them and for us."

In another partnership, the Toledo Mud Hens brought Muddie, the Minor League Baseball team's mascot, to the show.

Gilman also organized a contest involving a crushed car, which had entrants trying to guess the make, model and year, all from basically a big cube of metal, plastic and fabric.

"People really got into it," said Gilman, who said one guy with "obviously too much time on his hands" spent the weekend doing research on a piece of carpet that was poking out of the cube.

The winner (no word on whether it was the carpet guy) walked away with a big screen TV.

The beauty of promotions like the crushed car and even a little bit of space set aside for partners like the Toledo Zoo is that they don't take away space that's at a premium and intended for displays of new vehicles.

Toronto: Second highest attendance ever; more growth in forecast

There's little question that a strong auto market in North America, not only throughout the U.S. but in neighboring Canada as well, helped drive this season's Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.

So says Jason Campbell, who wrapped up his first year as the show's general manager.

"We had our second best attendance ever," said Campbell.

A very cold winter (but no major snow storms during the auto show) may have helped as far as encouraging show attendees to snuggle up next to their favorite vehicles.

"It was a chance for them to do something indoors," said Campbell, who works with ATAE Todd Bourgon, head of the Trillium Automobile Dealers Association.

Campbell also credits several "good news" announcements, including the fact that Ford plans to build its new GT in the area and news of General Motors investments in plant infrastructure.

Getting around the sprawling Greater Toronto Area, although an ongoing challenge for commuters, was made easier during the show as organizers encouraged the use of public transit, which includes an elaborate network of subways.

Still, a large percentage of attendees made the drive to the downtown show venue.

"That's when having long weekends do the work," said Campbell, referring to a Monday Family Day legal holiday that wrapped up the event.

Campbell said his strategy for next year will be to continue to develop partnerships with non-automotive groups, including operators of a new downtown aquarium (operated by Ripley's Believe It or Not fame), and the Ontario Science Center.
