According to data by Nielsen, a full 55.5% of Americans are clicking away on the mini-keyboards of their smart phones. Of course, that may just be the reason youngsters aren’t as enamored with cars as previous generations. How nice then, that Delphi is doing its part to bring cars and handheld technology together in harmony. This week’s guest is Delphi Chief Technology Officer and Executive Vice President Jeff Owens. We’ll be asking him about how the company is putting vehicle diagnostic technology in the hands of consumers as well as the company’s efforts to make direct injection a quiet process. Per usual we’ll also tap into the news of the week: Ford says it knows why utility vehicles are such a hot seller, Better Place goes bankrupt and one company predicts a fuel cell bonanza by 2030. Joining John McElroy in studio is co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Gary Vasilash from Automotive Design & Production.
