GM Strategy, Mazda Dealers, & Special McLaren
September 18, 2017
General Motors sees the future with more electric vehicles in the line-up. GM CEO Mary Barra discussed the company’s plans with the media on Friday. She says nearly all models from GM’s global brands in China will offer electrification technology by 2025.
Mazda is hoping changes in their dealerships will lead to more sales. Automotive News is reporting the company plans to overhaul 130 dealerships. About twenty-six have gone through the process so far. The project is expected to take about 3-years. The goal is to reach 2-percent market share in the U.S.
A few people with deep pockets will get something special from McLaren. McLaren Special Operations is producing special editions of the McLaren 570GT for six customers in the U.K. and Europe. The sports cars offer the same ‘XP Green’ color as the F1 XP GT ‘Longtail’ homologation model built in 1997. The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 will produce 562 horsepower. The price for this performance and luxury: $255,000.
