The week ahead sees us covering a variety of stories.
TheDetroitBureau.com recently sat in on a briefing with officials from American Honda to talk about what they are expecting from the market in the near future, in particular, what they plan to bring to it.
We’re also heading back to Milan, Italy this week to talk with top executives at Swedish vehicle maker Volvo as well as taking a trip to California to get some time behind the wheel of the new Acura Integra Type S. When something noteworthy happens during those events, you can be certain, we’ll have the story.
Electric vehicles of all sorts are on the radar these days and nascent commercial EV maker Lightning eMotors will be in Detroit Tuesday to show off its passenger van and school bus — the company’s two most popular vehicles — as well as its portable DC fast charging system.
The company’s top executives will be on hand to share insights about the commercial EV market, especially how smaller startups are dealing with big money behemoths like GM’s BrightDrop.
Additionally, we’ll be examining new tech-oriented partnerships, specifically the link up between Mercedes-Benz Financial Services USA and parking service provider Parkopedia plan to make parking your vehicle less annoying.
We’ve also spent plenty of time in new vehicles and will be offering reviews on a variety of new vehicles, including the Mercedes GLS 580, Infiniti Q50 Sensory, Kia Telluride Prestige, Toyota Corolla hatchback and more.
