    Once not too long ago it was king of the luxury hill. But having lost that title to the Germans years back, Cadillac has sputtered on every end.

Responsible for transforming Audi into the U.S. sales powerhouse it today and was on his way to attempting the same for Infiniti before Cadillac came calling. On this week's show, Mr. de Nysschen talks about his strategy for Cadillac to regain the luster, and more importantly, sales it has lost since 2000.

  • The Ev Era

    Electrics were all the rage a few years ago. Nissan, Mitsubishi and Chevrolet - among others - gave consumers their first taste of gas-free driving.

Join John McElroy from the floor of the New York Auto Show as he discusses this electric resurrection with Salim Morsy from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, John Voelcker of High Gear Media and EV enthusiast Chelsea Sexton.

  • Cracking The Code On How to Sell Evs

    Automakers have to sell electric cars. It's the law. But so far EVs only account for 1.4% of all new car sales. So how can automakers grow the EV segment? Escalent is a research firm that's identified six different groups of new car buyers and what motivates them to buy a new car. You might be surprised by its findings because "saving the environment" is not high on their list. Instead, automakers need to key in on other attributes, which is the topic of this show's discussion.
