Q1.Factors behind changes in demand of Auto industry in Australia
There has been a steady decline in Australian's auto industry since the last decade. While there were five car companies residing in Australia previously, now there are only three left, which is Ford, Holden and Toyota, and Ford has announced their closure of manufacturing plant in 2016 (ABC, 2013). This steady decline in the industry is driven by the declining demand of Australian made cars. There are several reasons behind changes in demand for Australia cars in the recent years. One of the reasons commonly stated is the strong Australian dollar compared to other currencies. The higher dollar as opposed to other currencies made it that producing cars in Australia is relatively more expensive compared to other countries. The rising prices of Australian dollar can be seen at this table: Year | Quarter | Yen | US Dollar | Euro | Won | 2007 | March | 94 | 0.79 | 0.60 | 742 | | June | 101 | 0.83 | 0.62 | 773 | | September | 100 | 0.85 | 0.62 | 789 | | December | 101 | 0.90 | 0.61 | 825 | 2008 | March | 95 | 0.92 | 0.60 | 879 | | June | 100 | 0.95 | 0.61 | 975 | | September | 93 | 0.87 | 0.58 | 953 | | December | 63 | 0.67 | 0.51 | 893 | 2009 | March | 63 | 0.66 | 0.51 | 942 | | June | 75 | 0.78 | 0.56 | 988 | | September | 79 | 0.85 | 0.59 | 1034 | | December | 82 | 0.91 | 0.62 | 1065 | 2010 | March | 82 | 0.90 | 0.66 | 1033 | | June | 80 | 0.88 | 0.70 | 1030 | | September | 78 | 0.92 | 0.70 | 1079 | | December | 81 | 0.98 | 0.73 | 1118 | 2011 | March | 83 | 1.00 | 0.73 | 1125 | | June | 87 | 1.06 | 0.74 | 1150 | | September | 82 | 1.05 | 0.74 | 1138 | | December | 78 | 1.01 | 0.75 |…...

...INTRODUCTION Since the first car rolled out on the streets of Mumbai (then Bombay) in 1898, the Automobile Industry of India has come a long way. During its early stages the auto industry was overlooked by the then Government and the policies were also not favorable. The liberalization policy and various tax relief by the Govt. of India in recent years has made remarkable impacts on Indian Automobile Industry. Indian auto industry, which is currently growing at the pace of around 18 % per annum, has become a hot destination for global auto players like Volvo, General Motors and Ford. A well developed transportation system plays a key role in the development of an economy, and India is no exception to it. With the growth of transportation system the Automotive Industry of India is also growing at rapid speed, occupying an important place on the 'canvas' of Indian economy. Today Indian automotive industry is fully capable in producing various kinds of vehicles and can be divided into 03 broad categories: Cars, two-wheelers and heavy vehicles. ← The first automobile in India rolled in 1897 in Bombay. ← India is being recognized as potential emerging auto market. ← Foreign players are adding to their investments in Indian auto industry. ← Within two-wheelers, motorcycles contribute 80% of the segment size. ← Unlike the USA, the Indian passenger vehicle market is dominated by cars (79%). ← Tata Motors dominates over 60% of the Indian commercial......

...Automobiles - An Introduction The word automobile was coined by 14th century Italian painter & engineer named Martini. Martini never built an automobile but he did draw plans for a man-powered carriage with four wheels. Martini thought up the name automobile from the Greek word, "auto," (meaning self) and the Latin word, "mobils" (meaning moving). The automobile as we know it was not invented in a single day by a single inventor. The history of the automobile reflects an evolution that took place worldwide. It is estimated that over 100,000 patents created the modern automobile. However, we can point to the many firsts that occurred along the way. An automobile, motor car or car is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transporting passengers, which also carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The term motorcar has also been used in the context of electrified rail systems to denote a car which functions as a small locomotive but also provides space for passengers and baggage. These locomotive cars were often used on suburban routes by both interurban and intercity railroad systems. There are approximately 600 million passenger cars worldwide (roughly one car per eleven people). Around the world, there were......
