TrueCar’s New CEO Says Top Goal to Be Mending Ties With Dealers

TrueCar Inc.’s new chief executive officer, Internet auto pioneer Chip Perry, said his top priority for the online vehicle pricing and data provider when he takes over for co-founder Scott Painter next month is to repair relations with car dealers.

The company has had contentious relations with dealers, which it charges $300 a car or a subscription fee to provide consumer leads that turn into sales in showrooms. In July, TrueCar and AutoNation Inc. the biggest U.S. new-car retailer, ended their agreement after AutoNation decided not to provide data TrueCar required to charge them for its services.

“Many dealers have had misgivings about working with TrueCar,” Perry said in an interview Monday after his hiring was announced. “My goal is going to be to earn their trust back by listening to them and building their feedback into our future plans.”

Perry, 62, is taking on the TrueCar job amid the company’s loss of two auto-industry veterans. Larry Dominique, a former Nissan Motor Co. executive, is stepping down as an executive vice president next month and John Krafcik, former head of Hyundai Motor Co.’s U.S. operations, left as president in September to lead Google Inc.’s self-driving car project. Painter will step down as CEO on Dec. 15 and will also resign as chairman and a director, after TrueCar said in August that he would keep the chairman post.

Perry was the first employee at AutoTrader.com in 1997 and built it into the world’s largest online vehicle marketplace with $1.5 billion in revenue, TrueCar said in a statement. He resigned from AutoTrader in 2013 after it withdrew a plan for an initial public offering. Since July of this year, he has been CEO of RentPath LLC, parent of ApartmentGuide.com and Rent.com.

“Scott did an amazing job getting TrueCar to this stage and for him to step aside does enable a clean, new chapter to open up,” Perry said. “To be able to signal a clean sheet of paper in terms of how we work with car dealers will be very helpful.”

TrueCar’s shares gained 5.7 percent to $7.83 at 3:42 p.m. New York time. The Santa Monica, California-based company’s stock slid 68 percent this year through Friday, including a 36 percent plunge on July 24 after cutting its 2015 sales forecast.

The company may need “some adjustments to the business model” to get its dealer relations and stock price turned around, Perry said. Six million people a month now visit TrueCar’s website and 10,000 dealers a day interact with the company’s marketing tools, he said.

“We’ll be able to come up with an action plan that works for car dealers and makes TrueCar a friendlier, stronger, better marketing partner,” Perry said.

He said he plans to begin visiting dealer showrooms in his first week on the job, with AutoNation CEO Mike Jackson one of the first he wants to meet.

“I’m hoping we can find a way to work together again,” Perry said. “It will be an important priority to build a bridge that AutoNation would be comfortable crossing.”


Buffett-Backed BYD Says Chinese Cars to Debut in U. S. Bloomberg Business #american #auto #parts

Buffett-Backed BYD Says Chinese Cars to Debut in U.S.

BYD Co. the Chinese automaker backed by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said Chinese cars are poised to begin hitting U.S. showrooms by next year.

BYD plans to introduce about four models for its U.S. debut at the end of 2015, said Stella Li, the senior vice president in charge of the company’s U.S. business, in an interview last week in Shenzhen, China. Though BYD wasn’t ready when it earlier sought to enter the U.S. car market in 2010, the company is more prepared this time, she said.

BYD’s ambitions, echoed by companies from Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. to Great Wall Motor Co. show how the Chinese are seeking to shake up the U.S. car market as the Japanese and South Koreans did decades earlier. Geely and Chery Automobile Co. have made such predictions as far back as 2005, though they’ve yet to sell their first car in America.

“Entering the U.S. market carries more symbolic meaning to brand building than actually boosting its bottom line,” said Han Weiqi, an analyst with CSC International Holdings Ltd. in Shanghai. “They really need to make sure cars they deliver there have sound quality in order to avoid adverse impact.”

Still, BYD has a track record of planning bigger than what they can actually deliver, Han said.

BYD is returning its sights to the U.S. after billionaire founder and Chairman Wang Chuanfu completed a three-year reorganization 2013, during which he cut the number of dealerships and narrowed losses at its solar business thanks to state incentives.

Restructuring Plan

Investors have been receptive to BYD’s turnaround. The company, which focuses on electric cars, saw its shares surge 63 percent to HK$38 in Hong Kong trading last year. During the restructuring, profit tumbled 97 percent because of losses at its photovoltaic business, a decline in global battery demand and a slump in auto deliveries.

Even with last year’s gains, BYD’s share price remains less than half the level of the record HK$85.50 reached in October 2009. That’s still profitable for MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co. a unit of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, which bought 9.9 percent of BYD in 2009 for HK$8 a share. The stock fell 0.7 percent to HK$37.40 in Hong Kong and gained 1.3 percent in Shenzhen to 38.48 yuan, the highest level since Dec. 16.

U.S. Market

Technically BYD is already in the U.S. vehicle market, though it sells electric buses to fleet operators, instead of cars to consumers. The company is preparing to begin U.S. production of electric buses in March at its factory in Lancaster, California, according to Li. The company had previously planned to sell its e6 electric hatchbacks in the country by the end of 2010, though that got postponed.

“Back then, we had passion, but we had no brand, no history, no capital and no competitive advantage,” said Li, 43, who spoke at BYD’s headquarters in China’s southern Guangdong province. “BYD has become more fashionable and we have improved our design and safety. We don’t want to compete on price anymore, but on quality and innovation.”

BYD isn’t the only Chinese automaker pursuing the American consumer. Geely, whose parent owns Volvo Cars, plans to export cars developed with the Swedish brand to the U.S. in 2016, Geely Chief Executive Officer Gui Shengyue said in August. Great Wall Motor, China’s biggest SUV maker, doesn’t have any official timetable to exporting to the U.S. said Xu Chengzhi, a company spokesman.

Chinese Calligraphy

In other markets, BYD is targeting to open a factory in Sao Paolo during the soccer World Cup that starts in June to assemble its K9 electric buses, Li said. The company’s e6 electric taxis are in use in Colombia and the U.K. and its buses in California, Canada and Spain.

In China, BYD’s electric buses are used in cities including Shenzhen, Changsha, Xi’an and Tianjin. while 800 of its e6 all-electric cars are used as taxis in its home city.

BYD’s Li said the its new Qin plug-in hybrid will likely be the flagship among models introduced in the U.S. The sedan, named after the dynasty founded by the emperor who unified China, went on sale in Beijing on Dec. 17. At a starting price of 189,800 yuan ($31,400) — before government subsidies — the car features headlights inspired by a Chinese calligraphy brushstroke and goes from zero to 100 kilometers (62 miles) an hour in 5.9 seconds, and can travel 70 kilometers on a single charge in electric-only mode, according to the company.

Separately, Li said BYD has found it easier to sell its battery-powered K9 bus and e6 car overseas than in Beijing and Shanghai, even though the Chinese company has offered free trials, Li said. The company failed to qualify for local incentives in the two cities because it’s based in Shenzhen in southern Guangdong province and the local governments have their own automakers to protect, she said.

Local Interests

“It’s disheartening as a Chinese to see how local interests are holding back the adoption of electric vehicles,” Li said. “It’s easier to sell our buses and cars to Sao Paulo, California or Israel than in Beijing and Shanghai. And those places have better air than China.”

Calls to the media department of the National Development and Reform Commission, the lead government agency coordinating the country’s new-energy vehicle policy, went unanswered. The Beijing and Shanghai municipal governments didn’t immediately respond to faxed requests for comment on their criteria for choosing providers of new-energy vehicles.

Missing Targets

China has lagged behind its own target to have 5 million alternative energy-powered automobiles by 2020 because of high prices of battery-powered models, concerns over safety and a lack of charging stations. Local governments provide matching subsidies on top of incentives by central government of as much as 60,000 yuan toward the purchase of an all-electric passenger vehicle and as much as 500,000 yuan for an electric bus.

Under a new program unveiled in September, the central government will focus on promoting the use of new-energy vehicles in the three regions anchored by Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou using subsidies through 2015, according to a joint statement by the NDRC, finance, science and industry ministries.

Despite the roadblocks, Li said she expects electric-vehicle sales to finally take off this year for BYD after sluggish demand in the past few years.

“The public has moved from doubt to recognition to adoption,” Li said. “2014 will be the year we start to harvest the fruits of our labor.”

Before You Purchase Commercial Auto Business Insurance

By Gregory Boop. Business Insurance Expert

Commercial auto insurance is one of the most important aspects of your business insurance program. If your business uses a vehicle, or many vehicles, you need commercial auto insurance and you will want to ask your business insurance professional some important questions. You will also want to provide your business insurance professional with a complete picture of your vehicle use.

How Many Vehicles and Drivers Will the Business Insure?

Commercial auto insurers often separate coverage types based on the number of vehicles and drivers to be insured. Fleet insurance is an option for businesses that will have a number of vehicles and drivers. The number of vehicles differs with each insurer and may depend on the class of vehicle. But, fleet insurance may be a less expensive alternative than individual, per vehicle policies.

What is the Policy Definition of Commercial Use?

Your personal auto policy will exclude coverage for commercial uses of your vehicle.

A commercial policy will establish a definition of commercial use as well. It is important that you read the definition and discuss this with your insurance professional. If there is any question, it is better to obtain a commercial auto policy so that, in case of an accident, there is no chance of being uninsured.

How Can You Lower Premium Costs?

Commercial auto business insurance premiums can be lowered by:

  • Business Location – the location of the vehicles determines premiums for theft.
  • Driver Records – hire only qualified drivers with safe driving records.

Continue Reading Below

  • Choice of Vehicle – sales people may want sports cars, but five-star safety rated, domestic, mid-sized sedans have the lowest premiums.
  • Deductibles – can your business afford part of the risk and maintain a high deductible? If so, your premiums will be lower.
  • Safety and Anti-Theft Devices – alarms, GPS tracking, air bags, seat belts, and other such devices can significantly lower premiums.
  • Insure U for Small Business Tips on Lowering Premiums

Options:

Option 1. Logo and brand design. If you are starting a new eCommerce based business it has been our experience over the years, that you need more than just a ‘logo’, you need a ‘brand’.

A brand image can be captured in a professional logo design, which represents the way you think about your business, industry or customer.

Our team that we’ve used for years specializes in taking your ideas and feedback from our comprehensive questionnaire to create a design for your logo, that speaks about you and your business.

You can find someone to make you a logo for $100, but to design an image or brand that is represented in your logo takes people who know how to interpret your vision into a graphic. If you purchase this option, it takes approximately 30-40 days to grind out a great design.
