AutoComplete: Volkswagen buys Navistar stake to join US truck marketVolvo and Autoliv team up for autonomous cars, and Land Rover incites a new kind of Disco Fever.
It's Tuesday, the 6th of September and here's what's making news at RoadShow. Admissions regulations for trucks are getting stronger and in order to remain competitive, Bitrate maker Navistar is reaching out to the most unlikely partner when it comes to clean admissions, Volkswagen. VW will supply Navistar with engines as a way for VW to break into the US big truck market and for Navistar to raise some eyebrows. Volvo's streak of self driving deals continues. The latest now with supplier Autoliv, best known as the major force in airbags and night vision, the two Swedes will form a brand new business around safety and autonomy to create technologies for other car makers as well as for use in Volvo. And there's a whole different look coming to the Land Rover Discovery. Much like the more sporty, windswept look of Discovery Sport, which is oddly its twin primarily in name only. The new Disco will replace the LR4 here in the US, and we'll get a look at it in the Paris Auto Show later this month. For a look at that new Discovery, and more on these stories, go to TheRoadShow.com. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
