Car Companies Race to Roll Out Self-Driving Cars, but the Rules Aren't Ready

Car companies are racing to get self-driving cars on U.S. highways. But federal regulators are playing catch-up. Starting next year, a largely autonomous Audi hits the highways. This fall, students at the University of Michigan will be hopping a driverless bus across campus. Carmakers are promising mass-market, fully self-driving cars by 2021, and tech companies like Uber and Google could deploy them much sooner.

UAW 'Talking' to GM about Impact of Car Sales Slump on U.S. Jobs

The president of the United Auto Workers union expressed concern on Thursday about the impact of slumping U.S. car sales at General Motors Co. on auto plants and jobs. "We are talking to (GM) right now about the products that they currently have" at underused car plants such as Hamtramck in Michigan and Lordstown in Ohio, and whether they might be replaced with newer, more popular vehicles such as crossovers, Dennis Williams told reporters. "We are tracking it (and) we are addressing it," Williams added.

Honda Expects to Maintain Market Share with Accord

Despite discontinuing production of its coupe, Honda hopes it will be able to maintain midsize-car market share with the introduction of its all-new ’18 Honda Accord sedan. Midsize sedans’ share of the total U.S. car market has tanked from 20.6% in 2009 to 15.1% in 2016 and 13.5%, so far this year, according to WardsAuto data.

Quotable
"We need definitions, we need the government and the states to set laws that are all united and unified around this, and there needs to be a little bit less PT Barnumism, when everyone's throwing around these terms."
