You cannot believe how many laws regulate the auto industry. So many that it’s almost impossible to keep track of.  But two legal eagles, Kevin McDonald from VW Credit and Karl Hochkammer from Honigman LLP, have compiled a very complete catalog of laws and they explain what they’re about in plain English that anyone can understand. They’ve managed to take a boring topic and make it very interesting.

Listen to “Autoline This Week #2615 – Uh-Oh, Now It’s A Shortage Of Headlamp Engineers” on Spreaker.

Internet Premiere: 06/15 @ 4:00pm ET

You’ve heard of the chip shortage that crippled automotive production. But you probably haven’t heard about the critical shortage of headlamp engineers. And you also probably didn’t know that thanks to consolidation in the industry, there aren’t many headlamp manufacturers left, either. All automakers are struggling with this problem, but that’s especially true for the EV startups. They can’t get the lamps they need. The panel talks about how the industry got into this mess.

ATW #2614 – Lordstown Motors Goes Asset Light, Develops Skateboard Trucks

May 31st, 2022 at 4:00pm

Audio-only version:
Listen to “Autoline This Week #2614 – Lordstown Motors Goes Asset Light, Develops Skateboard Trucks” on Spreaker.

Internet Premiere: 05/31 @ 4:00pm ET
Detroit Public TV: 06/12 @ 10:30am ET

PANEL:
Edward T. Hightower, President, Lordstown Motors
John McElroy, Autoline.tv

Lordstown Motors changed its business plan. Instead of building electric trucks, it’s going to have Foxconn build them for it—in the plant that Lordstown used to own. It raised the money it needs to launch its truck by selling the plant to Lordstown. That truck, called the Endurance, will start production in Q3, 2022. But Lordstown is already working on other commercial models that will use a skateboard chassis. Edward T. Hightower, the president of Lordstown Motors, explains the new direction the company is going in.
