Profits, doubts in equal measure at Geneva Motor Show

Sun, 03/04/2018 - 07:29

This year's Geneva Motor Show comes at a curious time for an auto world enjoying record profits yet also gripped by doubt midway through the grand transition from diesel to electric and self-driving vehicles. "Geneva really ought to have been a lovely salon," says, with heavy irony, Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, director of German-based Center Automotive Research of Europe's first major car show of the year running from March 8 to 18. Adding to the worries is a new threat by US President Donald Trump to tax imported European cars "which freely pour into the U.S", if Brussels retaliates in response to his announced plans for tariffs on imported steel and aluminium.

This year's Geneva Motor Show comes at a curious time for an auto world enjoying record profits yet also gripped by doubt midway through the grand transition from diesel to electric and self-driving vehicles. "Geneva really ought to have been a lovely salon," says, with heavy irony, Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, director of German-based Center Automotive Research of a Europe's first major car show of the year running from March 8 to 18. Number one overriding concern is the increasing slide in diesel sales, a blow for European constructors who had essentially sought to bet the house on diesel as they strove for years to cut CO2 emissions with the support of public authorities.
