This week we welcome Peter Hofbauer, a former diesel-engine designer at Volkswagen who’s now the Founder, Chairman and Chief Technical Officer of EcoMotors, the company developing a revolutionary new opposed-piston engine. Beyond that, host John McElroy, David Welch from Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics talk about some of the top news stories from the past week, like Ford’s recent management shakeup and the latest on Toyota’s unintended acceleration problem. Of course the panel also discusses the future of the ICE and what EcoMotors’ new powerplant can offer the auto industry as it shoots to deliver better fuel economy.
