New Tech, Automotive Trends, and Shenanigans at CES 2020 | #400
There's a lot out see and a lot to learn about this automotive industry we love so much at CES 2020. First, Executive Publisher for Autotrader, Kelley Blue Book, and Dealer.com, Karl Brauer, and Automotive Journalist, BJ Killeen, discuss one of the biggest reveals at CES 2020, Toyota's 'Woven City' project. It's interesting for us to note how many car companies are dipping their toes in every day tech, and how many tech companies are delving into the automotive world. Take the Sony VISION-S, for example. Yep, that's right, Sony put out a concept car packed with their electronic equipment; but is this just a marketing ploy for their existing lines of products, or a shot across the bow for the automotive industry? Next, Karl and BJ chat about the Hyundai S-A1 Air Taxi they've developed in partnership with Uber. BJ barely trusts her Uber driver to navigate busy streets in a car, much less whisk her away in a mini-helicopter. Then, Karl and BJ give us their thoughts on the new Ford Mustang Mach-E, the spread of electrification of vehicles, the trend of luxury brand SUVs, and Carlos Ghosn' upcoming press conference detailing his experiences in Japan. Tune in for this info-packed episode.
