CarTalk October 17, 2016

It is CarTalk time on Nightline.

Who doesn't have a question about this or that car and who do you ask?

Well, if you are asking is the obvious place to turn!

Funny thing the boys really did not want to talk about Honda and they are Honda owners.

VW China only electric car!
Volkswagen knows it needs to shift towards EVs. That was the company's big message at the Paris Motor Show this year, and the same thing is happening in China. VW will work with Jianghuai Automobile (JAC) to develop an electric vehicle to take advantage of both rising vehicle sales in China and the impact of the country's stricter greenhouse-gas emissions mandate. Speaking at the Paris Motor Show, Volkswagen China head Jochem Heizmann said the EV will be of the low-cost variety and will be marketed under a new brand name.

VW signed a memorandum of understanding to work with JAC on a vehicle-making joint-venture last month, and is likely to sign an official agreement by the end of the year. VW also has joint-venture agreements with SAIC Motor Corp. and China FAW Group, with plans to produce a separate EV with them as soon as 2020, but the JAC agreement may allow VW to have EVs on China's roads before then.
