  1. Last week, Chinese automaker and owner of Volvo, Geely announced that it would be acquiring just under 50 percent of shares into Malaysian automaker Proton and a majority stake in Lotus. For those who don't know, Proton is the current owner of Lotus since 1996. Final terms of this are still being worked on and are expected to be announced towards the end of July, but that isn't stopping many from wondering what Lotus could bring to the table. Lotus has a well-known reputation for building sharp handling vehicles along with providing engineering expertise to various automakers on fine-tuning suspensions. Examples include the Lotus Carlton (during GM's ownership), Isuzu Impulse, and Aston Martin DB9. Could they help out Volvo with their suspensions? "Why not," said Roger Wallgren, principal engineer of vehicle dynamics for the new XC60 to Australian outlet Drive. "I don't see any problem using their knowledge. I think it is pretty applicable all over the board. You need to have a dialogue - you can exchange knowledge back and forth." Wallgren was quick to clarify that no specific plans have been laid out between Volvo and Lotus at the moment. But the idea is out there and pairing Lotus up with Volvo's performance arm, Polestar could mean some interesting products could roll out. Source: Drive View full article

  3. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com October 31, 2013 More and more vehicles are coming equipped with elaborate infotainment systems that can do pretty much everything from giving directions to playing music off your phone. But these systems aren't always user friendly. A number of OEMs saw their ratings drop in Consumer Report's Auto Reliability survey because of their infotainment systems. General Motors wants to change that and is asking their 4,300 dealers about adding a customer Connection Center, a place where consumers can learn more and ask about in-vehicle technology and infotainment systems. GM spokesman Klaus-Peter Martin tells The Detroit News that the center give customers and the dealers’ certified technology experts a dedicated place to answer questions about technology. The center would also help improve customer loyalty and retention. A handout given to dealers says that 94 percent of customers believe there is a need for tech support, and 57 percent of customers would use it. “It’s another effort on our journey to provide this overall customer experience,” said Martin. This a voluntary move for all Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers as GM readies a roll-out of embedded 4G LTE mobile Internet access in most of its 2015 vehicles that will be sold in the U.S. and Canada.
