Alan Mulally's tenure as Ford's CEO has seen the company evolve in line with his vision of 'One Ford'. He also successfully guided Ford through recession and has generally been lauded by investors.

Mats Fägerhag, the former head of R&D for Saab, is now the CEO of China Euro Vehicle Technology AB (CEVT). This small firm's engineers are quietly creating the new CMA scalable architecture for C and B segment Geely and Volvo models.
Hyundai chose the Chengdu motor show to launch its new Kia Soul and Nissan Juke-rivalling ix25 small crossover today (29 August 2014).
Volvo's upcoming XC Classic - the previous model XC90 - will be assembled in a new Geely plant in Daqing, China, from a mix of parts shipped from Sweden while larger parts such as body panels will be stamped locally using dies relocated from a Swedish plant, just-auto has learned.
