Does it makes sense to anyone that car manufacturers are selling 2014 models 8 days into 2013?
I just watched a KIA commercial showing a man and his family finding a place to park. The ad is showcasing the power folding mirrors on the 2014 KIA Sorrento. We are only eight days into the 2013 how can an auto manufacturer sell a 2014 model a year before the year actually begins? Is this a new way to make money for car dealers and manufacturers? Is this a way to rip off consumers by selling a vehicle that is going to be worth less because it is actually manufactured in 2013?
I'm sure they've also got the 2020 models too. It's pretty common knowledge that society is at least 50 years behind technology that manufacturers, the government, etc. hold. And 50 years is on the shallow side.......
Was this a deliberate ploy or simply a mistake by whoever made up the advertisement? One thing is for sure, though, cars will change drastically in the next ten or twenty years. It'll be a bit like the 'better go out and buy a gun before the laws change," with cars too, in the not to distant future. Everybody'll want to grab the current kind before the new ones come in.
Well the 'no driver' car will come in. They're already in the trial stage. Bit like computer landings on aeroplanes, they'll be regarded as being safer to be on the road than cars being driven by human beings.
Cars, incidentally, have become easier to drive as the years have gone by. For example, when I got my driver's licenece back in 1955, all cars were manual transmission. Automatics were yet to come in. In fact they didn't even have turning-indicator lights or stop-lights. It was all hand signals and 'be alert, mate!' Many cars and most trucks still didn't have syncho on the gears so you had to 'double shuffle' to get a smooth gear change.
Now, we know that most drivers have an exaggerated view on how capable they are. I think some American statician showed a few year back that around 85% of drivers thought they were 'above average!' That says it all - no wonder there are so many prangs.
Anyway, like it or not, the driverless car is coming downs the road.
That is strange. I used to work at a car dealership and the new models for the next year came out in late March (i.e. 2014's). I guess it gives you the edge on saying you have a new model and it last for almost two years as "new".
The only perk is the prestige of having a"2014" model early. Dealers are the only ones that make out, initial price is high, trade in value will be for the 2013 manufacturing date on the door plate, and retail resale will be the 2014 model year.
