Has The Auto Industry Reached Its Peak?

Has The Auto Industry Reached Its Peak?

In the news this week, Richard, Daniel and Ariff reiterate the government's plans to launch the National Automotive Policy 2020 (NAP2020) on February 21st. After that, they discuss Bosch CEO Volkmar Denner's (completely reasonable) belief that the automotive industry has reached its peak, as automakers transition towards manufacturing electric vehicles, before looking into what a possible Volvo-Geely merger could mean.

For our review, Daniel tells us about the brand new 2020 Audi Q3 1.4 TFSI. This Audi is fully imported, kitted-out, and is selling for a relatively reasonable price, but have they done enough to mask its Volkswagen Tiguan underpinnings?
