Traverse, the great divide - a tough CASE to crack

6 August 2018

There’s a great deal of consternation in the auto industry presently, but that concern is divided in to two camps. On the one hand, there are those in the here and now anxious about whether total industry volume in the US this year will be 18m or 17.8m. On the other hand, there are those more concerned about the future and whether CASE (connected, autonomous, shared and electrified) or ACES (to put it another way) will fundamentally challenge the industry’s business model that’s been built up over the last 100 years or so. The differences in approach were there for all to see at the CAR Management Briefing Seminars held in Traverse City, Michigan last week.

Brexit’s come home - how the costs mount up

9 July 2018

This article was originally written on 6th July 2018, with the title ‘Brexit’s coming home’ and primed for publication today, the 9th July. The title was based on two presumptions: (i) England would beat Sweden in the World Cup quarter final and (ii) the UK government cabinet would fail to agree on its negotiating position with the EU, thus making a ‘hard’ Brexit more likely. As we know, England delivered on Saturday, but the bigger shock was the UK government’s ‘Chequers statement’ on Friday night. The prime minister Theresa May had seemingly quelled rebellion in the cabinet’s ranks and engineered a path for a ‘soft’ Brexit for manufactured goods (a service sector agreement, covering 80% of the UK’s economy comes later) via a Facilitated Customs Arrangement and a common rule book for manufactured goods. Now on Monday 9th July, even more unwanted uncertainty has been delivered following the resignation of Brexit minister David Davis from cabinet and the possibility of open warfare in the UK government.


Commercialising innovation - as easy as APC

6 July 2018

To continue to encourage and ‘derisk’ invention and innovation in the UK’s automotive industry the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) was established in 2013 as a result by intervention by the UK government and the industry (the UK’s Automotive Council). The APC has been funded with GBP1bn with half of the fund stemming from the government and half from industry. Its brief is simple, but complex: support the UK industry’s move to low carbon solutions and create an ecosystem that supports R&D, thus ending the dreaded ‘valley of death’.

Q&A with Prodrive
