Default Here's Why Automakers Are Making the Surprising Switch to Bigger Engines

http://fortune.com/2016/10/14/automakers-cars-bigger-engines-emissions/


* “We’re reaching the limits of downsizing”

* These mini-motors sailed through official lab tests conducted—until now—on rollers at unrealistically moderate temperatures and speeds. Carmakers, regulators and green groups knew that real-world CO2 and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions were much higher, but the discrepancy remained unresolved.

* In future “downsizing will mean you take a smaller engine and add an electric motor to it.”

Volkswagen posts global September sales growth.

Volkswagen Group brands experienced a 7.1% increase in deliveries in September, one year since the emissions scandal rocked the world’s largest car maker.
Quote:
A global year-to-date growth of 2.4% was supported by large gains in central and eastern Europe, as well as the Asia Pacific region and in particular China, which grew by 10.7% across the year. A growth of 3.5% occurred in Europe, including a 2.1% growth in Germany, while a 1.1% decline was posted in North America across the year
Quote:
Volkswagen as a brand bore the brunt of the backlash, with UK sales down by 14.1% on September 2015, although Audi’s sales grew by 9.4%, Porsche’s by 12.7% and Skoda’s by 10.37%. Despite the shrinkage, the Golf and Polo maintained their positions in the UK’s top 10 best-selling cars in September.

In US, Tesla Model S deliveries trump BMW 7-Series and Mercedes E-Class combined.

Quote:
Specifically, it sold 9,156 units of the Model S, while sales of the 7-Series and S-Class were 3,634 and 3,138 units respectively. So, for now, Elon Musk’s all-electric saloon is the undisputed king of the large exec segment.

But the large exec/luxury sedan segment is now dwindling in overall size, as is the outright-sportscar one, given the large shift all over the world but esp in the usa to suv-s,whether b-o-f or not, plush and 'sporty' cuv-s, and even huge luxury/lifestyle pickup 'trucks'?

Funny, isn't it, how Tesla trumps (pun intended) all-comers in this large-sedan segment in the usa, yet does nothing but lose money on each Model S sold ?!

The main auto oem-s have mostly desisted from full-ev-s thus far largely because there's just no money to be made, even now: least of all in the usa, what with low-gas prices and taxes. BUT they're readying ev-s for the markets where that will, already by 2019/20 or so, not be true: China and Europe. The latter are going to see massive public and state support for hybrids and ev-s pretty soon, in fact are already doing so, esp China and Germany too. Tesla's loss-making-but-pioneering is over, now the real ev race starts, and NOT in the usa. i.e., Tesla's chances as a financially-viable auto oem are bleak, once the ev race does in earnest?

I was quite surprised at the number of S-Cross's sold in the UK. WIth a black grill, it looked a lot better. The 1.4 boosterjet Vitara is also getting popular
