How Do Automakers Handle Politics?


how do automakers handle politics

As regular readers know, the regulatory side of the automotive industry is hugely important. It’s not as fun to read about as a well-written car review of some sexy sports car being tested in Spain, but it matters a lot. Not just to those employed in the industry (or in industry-adjacent jobs, like mine) but also to the car-buying public.

In order to make a bit more sense of how automakers navigate this part of the business, we spoke with James Bell, the head of corporate communications for Kia. He ran us through how Kia and other automakers handle the challenges of the regulatory environment, especially with ever shifting fuel-economy and tailpipe-emission rules.

Meanwhile, Matthew Guy joined us to discuss garage lighting for our “Stuff We Use” segment.
