WheelsTV Senior Writer and RPM Newsweekly co-founder Rich Taber talks to Cox Automotive Executive Analyst, Michelle Krebs about the future of cars and where electric vehicles stand in a world dominated by crossovers & SUVs.
From RPM NEWS Weekly:
Numbers don’t lie. SUVs and crossovers have clearly overtaken sedans in the marketplace. But, suggestions that more traditional cars are taking a final bow are misplaced. Just ask the folks at Honda. Even with the introduction of their all-new mid-size Passport sport utility vehicle, they are still putting a lot of faith in their tried-and-true compact Civic.
At a recent meeting of the New England Motor Press Association, representatives from Honda brought along both of these models and gave those in attendance clear indications of the automaker’s unswerving commitment to these two sides of the automobile market.
In addition, Cox Automotive Executive Analyst, Michelle Krebs, was on hand to take everyone through the numbers, pointing to statistics that verified the current SUV trend, while more importantly bringing some insight into what’s really going on in the car market.
Rest assured, sedans are not dead. But don’t hold your breath for a comeback.
