Volkswagen Tops China Car Sales

Posted: January 15th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Grilled Auto News, Grilled Motoring News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Volkswagen Tops China Car Sales

VW Tops China Car SalesVW are now the biggest automotive manufacturer in the world’s biggest automotive market, quite a contrast to their US operations where they skirt around the middle of the pack.

Volkswagen were once much-loved in the US for their quality, but have since seriously fallen out of favor.

Over in the Middle Kingdom VW’s pull on the Chinese public is immense, the German auto-makers offer stretches from the cheapest $US12,000 hatch to the $US175,000 Phaeton übersedan.

And it seems that anything with a VW badge riveted to the front and back panels seems to simply drive out the showroom doors.

Volkswagen sold 3.27 million vehicles in China last year, it’s closest rival, GM, sold 3.16 million cars, now the race is on for VW to become the world’s biggest automotive manufacturer, but for them to achieve that result they will need to improve the way the US market views them :: Read the full article »»»»

When was the last time you put on lipstick?

If you answered - IN YOUR CAR - you’re not alone. According to UK insurance company Diamond 20 per cent of women apply makeup in the car.

It might seem harmless, in reality it's possibly be more deadly than chatting or texting on the phone. A recent study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found touching up your lippy -  or heaven forbid, applying an entire face - can increase a driver’s crash risk by three times whereas talking on the phone upped the risk by just 1.3 times  :: Read the full article »»


DUCATI: Volkswagen Bought A Bike!

Posted: April 21st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Grilled Auto News | Tags: , , , | Comments Off on DUCATI: Volkswagen Bought A Bike!

VOLKSWAGEN BOUGHT A BIKE

Volkswagen – under the helmanship of Ferdinand Piech & apparently on behalf of his prior engagement, Audi – has snapped up Ducati Motocycles for €860 million/$US1.1 Billion, the deal was approved days ago by the Piech-chaired VW supervisory board, raising the number of VW nameplates to 12. Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Ducati, Lamborghini, SEAT, Porsche, Giugiaro, Škoda, Scania, MAN and of course VW.

Amusingly the marriage seems to have divided moto columnists. The fans of the sale seem to be bike enthusiasts, the naysayers seem to be business commentators. Piech is often portrayed as a big German kid in a toystoy, we think not, during his tenure Piech has reinvented, saved, turned-around and generally benefited more auto brands, indeed marquis, than almost any other single person, ok perhaps a little liberty there, you get the picture though :: Read the rest of this entry »


Will Apologetic Rant HALT The Kyle Sandilands Money Exodus

Will Apologetic Rant HALT The Kyle Sandilands Money ExodusIt seems the exodus of money has finally quietened Kyle Sandilands? The enormous mouth of the kiwi radio personality has churned out some rubbish in it’s time. Sandilands has been pulled from the air more than once in his radio career, after several absolutely shameful tongue lashings:  ”Magda Szubanski would lose more weight in a concentration camp” and then of course there was the moral high Sandilands reached when a 14 year old girl who he’d had hooked up to a lie detector revealed she was raped when she was 12. Sandilands latest on-air rant against journalist Alison Stephenson has perhaps woken the impresario? His rant in November triggered an online petition calling for major sponsors to withdraw their support for his radio show, owned and run by Southern Cross Austereo. Coles, Bunnings, Vodafone, McDonald’s, Ford and others were among the first to announce their decision to boycott the 2DayFM host. Sandilands said he regretted that his staff had to “bear the brunt” of his actions. READ MORE


The Sandilands Money Exodus Continues

Kyle SandilandsIt seems even without Sandilands around the exodus of money hasn’t slowed at radio network Austrereo? That beast that is Kyle Sandilands, may be on his summer break, but it hasn’t stopped advertisers from extending their boycott of his breakfast radio show. In a new blow to Southern Cross Austereo, at least 15 major brands have pledged to not advertise on any of Sandilands’s programs in 2012. Some of big brand names including Coles, Bunnings, Vodafone, McDonald’s, Ford and Blackmores said their boycott of the 2Day FM host would extend into next year. The Sandilands debacle started after a female journalist wrote a review of Seven’s Kyle and Jackie O television show which aired on November 21. The following morning Sandilands launched into an on-air attack of the News Ltd journalist. A statement released by Australian grocery behemoth Coles, on the Change.org website Tuesday said: “Our very clear position in relation to the offensive and inappropriate comments made by Kyle Sandilands remains that we are not and will not advertise on programs hosted by him.” The gorgeous Jackie O must be wondering who she’s going to be sat next to in the new year? READ MORE
