Obama Blows Through Stop Signs from Trump on Auto Regs

The Obama administration is barreling ahead with a number of regulations that affect automakers in its final days, despite President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to drastically reduce the burden of federal rules on U.S. businesses. Jeff Davis, senior fellow for the independent Eno Center for Transportation think tank, said transportation officials in the Obama administration may be trying to “flood the zone” to make it difficult for Trump to repeal its proposed rules after he takes office.

Was 2016 Good Year for Auto Dealers?

Here's a look at how auto dealers did in 2016, what regulatory changes were introduced and what can be expected in the coming year.

Autonomous Cars Need Time on Proving Grounds

There may be a large market for autonomous vehicles. Or there might be a small market. It is simply too soon to tell.

Dealerships Bleed Too Much Data

We are now entering a new phase. In it, dealers' attention to their intellectual data assets will play a key role in determining how the distribution system will operate. But today, dealerships are both physical spaces and digital efforts. And with that change, the historical marketing roles of dealers are being threatened.

The digital world challenges dealers' capabilities for gathering and analyzing market insight faster than other data acquirers. Every marketing company wants to have the customer information that's generated at the retail level.
