Audi EV strategist: Dealers now see value in EVs, but a lot more work needed

Cody Thacker, the chief of Audi of America’s electric-vehicle initiative, said the pace of EV adoption will rapidly increase in the next couple of years. He delivered his remarks at the Economic Club of Chicago last week. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); It took five years for the industry to sell the first million EVs. By 2020, we will have reached 10 million EVs sold, and we will be selling another million EVs every four months. And this is just the beginning. Two years ago, the conversations with dealers were different. There was more pushback. Now, dealers are seeing the value. We want to get them comfortable enough to take that leap of faith.

Daimler’s U.S. division, Mercedes-Benz USA, will pay up to $20 million in fines for mishandling dozens of recalls, according to a settlement signed Wednesday between the automaker and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The fines stem from a year-long NHTSA investigation into every Mercedes recall between 2016 and 2018 after the agency, among several federal violations it identified, found the company late in mailing owner letters and omitting critical information in its filings. The automaker must pay $13 million up front, with another $7 million in hanging fines if NHTSA determines that Mercedes is delaying or failing to improve its recall processes. The company will be audited by NHTSA for the next two years. According to the settlement, the agency found roughly 40 percent of the automaker’s 101 recalls in those earlier years to be out of compliance. The agency found Mercedes either notified customers beyond the 60-day limit (in some cases, as long as 80 days after filing), did not submit those notifications to NHTSA within five days, ...
