THE WEEK THAT WAS: Geneva (by one means or another)
Getting to Geneva 2015 required different modes of transport and challenges
So, did anything interesting happen this week? I seem to recall the odd vague mention of a motor show Somewhere in Europe. Geneva? That's it. We had a full team on the ground while Muggins here managed the mother ship back in Blightly. Which, after hearing reports of the wifi standard at the show, suited me just fine.
Getting there was fun for one of us. Editor Dave Leggett scored a sought after place on Vauxhall's classic car run which sure beat Simon Warburton's 'anyone want to get off for EUR200 and change airports because the plane's too heavy?' Easyjet flight. But everyone got there in the end and we've packaged all our coverage here.
Among the highlights: a chat with the new Ford Europe chief, details of how GM's well seasoned OnStar telematics will work in Europe and Toyota getting in on the engine downsize act.
Outside Switzerland, Daimler is yoinking Smart from Australia, Mazda is now churning out the redesigned MX-5, China is getting a three pot Volvo, snowstorms hit US sales, and Mexico and Brazil are still haggling over 'free trade' quotas.
Have a nice weekend.
