You just said they should be passing the savings on to customers.

No, I said there was no mention of passing any of those savings onto the customers,

and as i said, you can pass on savings by making electrification more accessible.

 

In a Mulally era, he would be including the customer and showing what's in it for them,

"providing affordable technology to the masses" was one of his key statements.

 

I think we're both right on this, you don't want all the savings leaking away to customers

but you want to tell and show customers what's in it for them ......

But they will be able to pass savings on to consumers - if that's what the market dictates.  It gives them more options and allows them to invest more in new businesses.

I predict the market will dictate the need for these new future vehicles  SUV/CUV types  to have BIG rebates to get them out of the dealerships. The market will be flooded with  these high riders both in the used and new stock pile.

 

So they will be forced to pass those savings on to consumers no doubt about it.

 

Indicators are already showing Fords high riders are losing steam when it is supposed to be hay making time for high riders.

Uh that is because the two biggest selling products they have are 10 and almost 20 years old-and both will be replaced in the 18 months.

Still, the sales being achieved by those aged products against much newer competition is impressive

and a strong foundation for those new products. Explorer and Escape might be on their last legs but

they still get the job done more than adequately and they're still good rides too..

 

Ford's strength has been bring affordable  technology to market, I don't see that changing in the future.

They may in fact, be on the cusp of something really big with the planned widespread roll out of hybrids
