Stocks Toyota Motor Corp

  • You’ve probably heard that in the coming years China would overtake the US in some areas. Well it’s starting to happen.

  • North American International Auto Show, Detroit, Michigan

    As I walk around the Detroit Auto Show, the gloom and doom of last year has lifted. Replaced with cautious optimism. All is not well in Motown, but there are reasons to be optimistic.

  • Ed Whitacre

    One month into his tenure as CEO of GM, Ed Whitacre Jr. has a pretty simple game plan for getting GM back on track: just make money. Don't laugh. It's what the man has said time and again, most recently Wednesday afternoon when talking with reporters. While his strategy may sound hokey and simple, I think it's exactly what GM needs right now.

  • Ford Sync

    If it's not already apparent, we are quickly heading towards a day when our car will be fully "wired" into our lives and that connectivity opens up a host of opportunities and problems.

    A desire to cut household operating costs while being green, along with a government push for energy efficiency, may power this new consumer gadget market.

  • car_dealership_ford.jpg

    Ford Motor's December sales leaped an adjusted 23.3 percent, far outpacing industry forecasts for the U.S. automaker, while sales at General Motors declined 12.8 percent, slightly worse than expected.

  • Tata Nano

    In the clearest sign yet that the world's least expensive mass-market car is coming to the U.S., Indian automaker Tata says its Nano micro-car could be here in three years.

  • Tata Nano

    It may be halfway around the world from Detroit, but the auto expo this week in New Delhi, India is in many ways a far more important than the one we'll see next week in Detroit.

  • With the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq already at new highs for the year, U.S. stock futures are slightly up following rallies around the world.

  • volvo_grill_AP.jpg

    Maybe it's because the Chinese are new to the auto game. Maybe it's because Americans automatically think, "we invented the car business and nobody can do it better than us." Or maybe it's because some people are worried the Chinese will grow Volvo and become an increasing threat to the Big 3.

  • Winterizing Your Portfolio - A CNBC Special Report

    Stock index futures mostly held their ground and indicated a higher open, despite a report showing the economy grew at a much slower pace than thought in the third quarter.

  • Chris Liddell

    Let's be clear, Chris Liddell is not being hired JUST to be General Motors CFO. Sure, he'll get that title and hold that job for several months, but his future at GM will go way beyond overseeing the company's financial operations.

    Stock index futures mostly held their ground and indicated a higher open, despite a report showing the economy grew at a much slower pace than thought in the third quarter.

  • EVI_truck2_200.jpg

    Though some progress has been made with electric and hybrid vehicles, battery technology remains deficient, especially for the critical long-haul segment of the business.

  • Car on road

    On a regular basis, I get e-mails from people saying we spend too much time focused on GM surviving, Ford being on a roll, or the development of electric cars.

  • Rick Wagoner

    What must former GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner be thinking? In less than a year most of what he built in his tenure as GM CEO and before that on the GM Board has been completely dismantled. The final piece coming today with current GM Chair and CEO Ed Whitacre announcing Saab will be wound down.

  • For A123 investors, it's been a nice two-day run. The stock is surging today after a 5% gain on Wednesday, as the U.S. battery maker announces a joint venture in China with SAIC Motor Corp.

  • Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen speaks at the National Press Club

    The comments this week by Audi of America President Johan de Nysschen about President Obama's administration pushing electric cars is one that will no doubt get the attention of many in the auto industry.

  • Ford

    There are two types of emails I get about Ford: The first comes from those who think we don't give Chief Executive Alan Mulally and his team enough credit for the turn-around they are executing at the auto maker. I chuckle reading these...

  • GM Headquarters

    The leadership changes at GM keep coming. The latest, two new people running Chevrolet as well as Buick/GMC are out.
