Week in Review: Holiday Plant Closures, Our Christmas Wishlists, Hyundai/Kia Dole Out Gifts
While you were busy opening presents, indulging in holiday cookies, and not going to church, we have been working on the week’s top stories. In the spirit of the season, pretty much all of the stories are holiday-themed. On Monday, we learned General Motors and Ford extended holiday plant closures in order to get rid of excess inventory and retool for new products. On Tuesday and Wednesday, our staff writers revealed which cars made Automotive.com’s Christmas wishlists. Thursday’s news consisted of Hyundai and Kia announcing they would be giving…er…belated Christmas gifts to consumers to reimburse them for inflated fuel economy ratings. On Friday, we got to experience the 500-hp Volkswagen GTI Design Vision Concept. Check out a full recap of this week’s news below.
Hyundai's CEO leaves abruptly and will be replaced by current sales boss David Zuchowski.
