AutoComplete for July 29, 2016: Volkswagen again rises to global sales dominance
Today is Friday, July 29th, 2016.
And here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Volkswagen's on a roll despite its diesel issues.
The German automaker has once again risen to the top of global automotive sales besting Toyota with 5.1 million vehicles sold in the first half of 2016.
While it's main brand didn't do so well, it's sales were propped up by Audi, Porsche, and Skoda.
Just one day after consumer advocates called on Mercedes to pull some of it's advertising, the auto maker went, and did exactly that.
It pulled ads for it's Drive Pilot Semi-Autonomous Driving System, which consumer advocates called misleading for it's references to autonomy.
Apple's run of mysterious hires continues with Dan Dodge.
He was formerly the CEO of QNX, Blackberry's automotive software division.
Strong experience in car software, you say?
Well, sure does sound like Apple has something automotive up its sleeve.
