Management briefing - 2018 Geneva motor show review

12 Mar 2018 | Glenn Brooks

Geneva 2018 had the usual collection of hypercars, although many of them are powered by the energy stored in batteries rather than in petrol tanks. Robotic taxis were there too with Volkswagen cheekily painting its already seen SEDRIC in the colours typical of a US schoolbus. Why then for a show rich in electric vehicle world premieres were so many of them overshadowed by new petrol and diesel models?

COMMENT - Why Mazda needs the Amati luxury brand

25 Oct 2017 | Glenn Brooks

It's almost 25 years since Mazda shelved Amati, its take on Acura, Infiniti and Lexus. Given that the plans for multiple models and a bespoke W12 engine were not backed up by a rock solid balance sheet, this was the right decision. Now, with its recent concepts effortlessly showing up so many cars from the likes of Ferrari, Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce which lack beauty, it's time for Mazda to think again.
