A Model-A of Henry Ford by 1900’s In the 1920s the automobile/motorcar, came out to represent a great part of the American dream, offering independence and adventure to its owners. During that period, the price of cars fell dramatically, so that the people could afford them. That was a smart tactic for many car industries, because due to the previous high prices, only the rich were able to afford one. They could be sold to a mass market because they could be made more cheaply, using assembly line methods. The assembly line of Henry Ford had brought down approximately the average of a car from $850 in 1908 to $250 in 1925.
They worked with suppliers to re-engineer the car parts to be used on different models and thereby to reduce the complexity and cost to manufacture their cars. Furthermore, Allegro Automotive is expanding their market reach by building a manufacturing facility in the United States to take advantage of new tax laws. They are expanding into new markets by building electric cars as well as traditional fuel platforms. In order to become more responsive to changes in the industry, Allegro found it beneficial to bring the design experts and the safety testing team together. This improved communication between the two groups and fostered a collaborative environment.

Did you know that tens of thousands of people will lose their jobs when self-driving cars hit the road? Did you know that you can buy a house for the same price as a driverless car? Self-driving cars are about to take over the highways, but these vehicles are on a course destined to crash. Not only are these cars expensive to purchase, but they will leave many without jobs and these cars will add to our already lazy do-it-for-me society. I believe that self-driving cars have no business on the road.
If the amount of accidents lower, insurance rates will be lower for everyone. “Road crashes cost USD $518 billion globally, costing individual countries from 1-2% of their annual GDP.” says the Association for safe international road travel. Too much money is being spent on these accidents and this law is surely going to save billions of dollars. Another factor is time, lots of workers’ time is being used on fixing up roads while they could be fixing something else. So many lives are killed that according to the ‘Rocky Mountain Insurance Info’ in the United States, nearly 1 trillion dollars have been lost due loss of productivity and lives from motor accidents every year.

SCI International recently stated that aluminum consumption by the auto industry in China will drop to 210,000-220,000 tons as compared to a prior-forecast of 250,000 tons, indicating a drop of 14%. This will increase the oversupply situation in the industry and lead to weaker prices. On the other hand, in Europe, the rate of growth in car sales is decelerating, which is another reason to worry for
Car prices were decrease significantly so that they could be affordable to the people. Henry Ford who established the assembly line, helped reduce the time it took to make a car, with the assembly line cars were being made within 1 hour and 33 minutes. Automobiles, in turn, stimulated the growth of steel, glass, and rubber industries, and much more. Consumer goods were available for women and men due to the advertising, which developed new methods of alluring buyers to impulse new products through new
