Here’s what I imagine the business news headlines on CNN will be in 2015:
1. Volkswagen buys out Mazda. The 16th carmaker to be added to the group, VW now builds and sells over 12 million cars and is the largest auto company in the world.
2. Bugatti, a VW group company, has announced its intent of building a 500 kph supercar. The car will cost 5 million pounds and only 25 will ever be built, all of which have been spoken for. Over 16 of those buyers are Indians, seven are Chinese, and one is European and one North American.
3. VW plans to build the cheapest car in the world in Bolivia. Bolivia is the last country in the world to get a VW manufacturing facility.
4. Volkswagen’s Passat goes through an update. Gets auto cruise-control with driver disable facility – a world first!
