Vehicle Market Share Grab


Typically people are willing to pay more for something, if there is additional value to be returned.

A BMW costs more than a KIA.

A Cadillac costs more than a Honda Civic.

The UAW strike is only for GM, Ford, and Stellantis facilities.

Tesla, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Volvo, Volkswagen … these workers are not in the UAW. These workers are not on strike.

Even though the UAW is on strike, they’ve already won this negotiation for the short-term … they have won concessions that the Detroit 3 carmakers did not want to make.

But the strike continues on, even more deeply.

No clear end in sight.

Fain wants more.

He’s not interested in the long-term financial health of these companies.

Barra, Farley, Tavares … have big responsibilities and they do a lot of different things, some things exceptionally well … but they have failed miserably at anticipating possible outcomes and scenarios with the strike.

Their shareholders will pay, certainly.

The car makers have their profit targets though, and they’ll come back as they usually do, and likely will pass on a great deal of the costs to the consumers.

Got me thinking … are you willing to pay more for a new GM, Ford, or Stellantis vehicle, because of loyalty to union workers, and a loyalty to American made vehicles?

Or are you going to purchase whatever vehicle is most appealing to you and most cost effective, because that is what is best for you, regardless of who makes it, or where it is made?

45-60, clouds.

Make it a great day, everyone!
