Real detroit horoscope november 2013

DETROIT - The combination of falling gas prices and the boomlet of higher-riding crossovers is forcing automakers to stop making certain passenger cars that don't generate sufficient sales or profits to satisfy Wall Street or American consumers. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has said production of the Dodge Dart compact and Chrysler 200 midsize sedan would stop in the near future.
Last month, Toyota said it would scrap its youth-oriented Scion brand, which targeted younger consumers with quirky, sometimes cube-shape vehicles. This shift from subcompact and compact cars to higher-riding and not-much-larger crossovers and sport wagons is not new, but it is accelerating. Falling gas prices also have nudged consumers to look at larger vehicles than they may have considered three years ago. It's unclear whether more small passenger cars will be dropped, but even General Motors, which will boost profit margins on its new Chevrolet Malibu and Cruze by about $1,500 per car because of a move to Mexico and some other factors, is closely watching the profitability of each model. The bigger-is-better phenomenon is setting the stage for a political showdown in the next year over the government's Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards. In 2017, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will seek public comment on whether the fuel-economy standard should be revised for model years 2022 through 2025, said John Graham, dean of Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Despite lighter-weight vehicles, turbo chargers, stop-start technology, hybrids, and electric vehicles, automakers and consumers have a long way yet to go to come anywhere close to the 2025 goal.
Dave Sullivan, an industry analyst with AutoPacific based in Ann Arbor, Mich., said it is about more than fuel prices.


Honda Honda FCV Concept showcases the styling evolution of the next-generation zero emissions Honda fuel cell vehicle. The long-in-the-works fuel cell vehicle, unveiled last month in Japan, is the next progression in the company’s FCX and FCX Clarity cars.
Honda says the car features a lower, wider, more aerodynamic body, with a roomier interior than the Clarity — roomy enough to seat five passengers. Toyota’s Mirai, to be released as a 2016 model, is expected to retail for the equivalent of about $60,000 when it goes on sale in Japan, where it will qualify for a $20,000 government rebate.
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles employ an electric motor, similar to the electric motors used in battery electric vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles. Scion sales peaked at 173,000 in 2006, and aside from a modest resurgence in 2012, withered to 56,167 in 2015.
In the aftermath of the 2009 financial crisis, the Obama administration backed and Congress approved a standard that would require automakers to reach a fleet average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. Similar vehicles have price tags in the $60,000 range, before government rebates that are common for alternative fuel vehicles. An example: To date, there are only 11 hydrogen fueling stations in California, though that number could increase to 40 stations within a year.
They typically have range similar to gas-powered vehicles, and like those vehicles can be refueled in three to five minutes.
