New technology overtaking the auto industry

New technology overtaking the auto industry

It seems that supply issues caused by the diminishing reserves of important raw materials don’t change the philosophy of the major car manufacturers. Or do they? We tend to think that big businesses continue to be cashing in on the rising demand for the product, without any concerns about the consequences.

Fortunately, the wave of new vehicle models, hybrids, EVs, FCEV, and other technological advances have revealed that innovative car manufacturing is becoming the norm more than the exception throughout the auto industry.


Toyota is the most popular make in the US or at least one of the most seen on the roads. This is not just because it’s Japanese. It is because the prominent car maker produces great automobiles. And the company just never stops inventing. Toyota is the maker of the Prius, the first Hybrid vehicle that became hugely popular and accepted.

Now the automaker is working on its version of hydrogen fuel-cell car. And the chances are the new model will hit the dealers around 2015. This vehicle will only emit water vapor from its tailpipes. Moreover, it is shaped like a drop of water. What else can we say? The word is purity, and it is not a typical word to go with a motor vehicle.

Toyota is also very committed to developing safety technology, according to its newsroom. The latest is the new Pre Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrians-avoidance Steer Assist that can prevent collisions with pedestrians. The system activates when a collision seems inevitable, and the automatic braking alone is not enough. The steering assist activates and steers the vehicle away from the pedestrian. How about that now?


The other Japanese carmaker did not fall behind. Well, it might have, a bit, in terms of design. Honda recently introduced its fuel-cell vehicle the FCEV Concept. They say, sweeping lines and aerodynamic body, but it just doesn’t cut for me. It is too futuristic and downright ugly. As Jalopnik put it, “A stunning car no one will buy.”

The automaker still has some good stuff though. Its ultimate direction is developing vehicles that use sustainable energy sources. And this is what the FCEV displays. Aside from this, Honda recently introduced the 2015 Fit. It has improved performance and efficiency and enhanced interior and technology features. And this is all good for the all-new Honda Fit. It definitely needed refinement. I would never buy a Fit though. However, in general, Honda is a good choice, if you are looking for reliability.


The next automaker in line that intends to beat both of its rivals is South Korea-based Hyundai. It will market a hydrogen-powered vehicle based on its Tucson. It’s hard for me to find words right now. I am thinking: what is with all these hydrogen-powered vehicles? It’s probably because we are running out of petrol. Many believe that consumers want this zero-emission technology. Hyundai believes. But we may just not be ready to make the switch yet. And, well, a Tucson is definitely not what I have in mind for FCEV.


The carmaker is never defeated. A favorite of mine, Volkswagen, has introduced new features and new models that many will buy, in my opinion. VW leaders stand behind their statement that “hydrogen fuel-cell has failed to live up to promises,” there is simply no efficient way to produce hydrogen, meaning the cars will be expensive. Yet, we see many carmakers jumping right in and introducing their FCEVs. So, what did VW introduced in 2013? Well, it was simply an E vehicle. The e-Golf. Before we even say something, let’s just stop and enjoy the visual aesthetics of the car.

The electric motor produces 115 horsepowers and 199 pound-feet of torque. It will take you from 0 to 62 MPH in 11.8 seconds. It sure falls behind its standard quick Golf brother, but it’s not bad at all for this beautiful city EV. The lithium-ion battery is mounted under the back seat, not taking from cargo or passenger space. The only thing missing, for now, is the price.

With no wild features and lines, the Volkswagen Group also introduced its newest concept vehicle – the Cross Blue Coupe Concept crossover. The car appeared at the 2013 LA Auto Show. Inside and out, it screams Volkswagen. The style and the luxury speak about carefully considered lines and features. Overall, it is a fuel-efficient SUV many will be waiting for. Meanwhile, Volkswagen will continue pushing innovative technology like its automatic parking and exiting from tight spaces through smartphones. Tons of good stuff are to be expected from the old German automaker.

Some other old automakers are also adopting new technologies faster than ever. We will talk about those in another article. Thanks for reading!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
