Ford's Q2 Profits Smash Expectations

DEARBORN, Mich., June 27, 2013

By every measure, automaker beats Wall Street estimates and ups guidance for rest of year Powered by record profits in North American, Ford Motor said Wednesday that its net income increased in the second quarter to $1.2 billion, up $193 million from $1 billion, on an increase of revenue from $38.1 billion, up $4.8 billion. The automaker's results smashed through analysts estimates and the automaker surprised Wall Street by saying it expects to do better in the second half than it earlier forecast. The automaker says performance of all its units around the world increased from a year ago, and that North American operations led the way. In the U.S., Canada and Mexico, it was a record quarter and record first half. Source: USA Today

A major determining factor is the energy we use to mine the iron, lithium and rare earth elements, to smelt and process the raw materials, and to transport all these materials in order to manufacture the cars, the batteries and everything associated with them.

Purple? Pink? Chevrolet Bets on Wacky Car Colors There's something about the smallest of cars that lend themselves to wild paint jobs. But purple? And pink? When it comes to its two smallest models, Sonic and Spark, Chevrolet is plumbing the depths of customer appeal for colors like, well, plum. The Chevrolet Sonic is temporarily going to come in a new color, Deep Magenta Metallic, which is described as a "chromatic plum" color. It's the kind of hue that car executives are hesitant to call for what it is: purple. Source: USA Today
