We are obsessed with automobiles, but...
something is about to happen in Paris...
In December 2016 the mayors of Paris, Athens, Madrid and Mexico City pledged to oust diesel vehicles from city centers until 2025. It is expected that more cities will try to decarbonize transport, a move that will accelerate the adoption of electric, hybrid and hydrogen cars.
For the last 17 years, Auto Business Review has been closely monitoring the auto industry's new direction. Our first auto conference was conceived back in 2002 and dealt with the then new Block Exemption Regulation. In 2005 we organized another successful conference titled "Automobiles and the Environment" with a panel of international experts. In 2008 we organized a landmark event titled "The Future of the Automobile" and continued with 4 consecutive "green" motor shows in the evergreen premises of the American Farm School of Thessaloniki, Greece. Our interest in sustainable mobility is evidently manifested throughout this site as we closely monitor the resurgence of electric vehicles after almost 100 years of inactivity -New York's fleet of electric taxis outnumbered any other type of cars back in the 20s. Although we have a fixation with "green" cars, we are also nostalgic about the good old days of fancy motoring -be it Group B monsters, the unforgettable smell of Castrol oil in racing circuits and the dynamism of sports cars. Above all, we have a deep affection for vintage vehicles as our affiliated website (automotohistory.com) presents a nice collection of historic vehicles.
We definitely believe that the history of the automobile is passing through a critical turning point. We are talking about a century-old technology that witnessed dramatic developments but more or less stayed the same as fossil fuels are the name of the motoring game since the first oil well was discovered in Texas back in the 1920s...The dirty internal combustion engine is about to go extinct and give way to clean technologies like electric and hydrogen cars. Autonomous driving is a reality and smartphones now interact with cars. We very much support such developments and we are particularly eager to see more "green" cars appearing on the market. Until then, we are examining the problems created by carbon dioxide emissions, traffic congestion and increased urban noise levels. Auto Business Review will keep a fixed eye to the industry's evolution, analyse market trends and provide extensive reportage of all related auto business stories.

An old saying among car addicts has long been that "There is no replacement for displacement"... With public outcry over diesel and petrol engines, is it a sin to watch F1, get enthusiastic with WRC or drive a GTi?

Actually, this is a much admired profession for us -as the autobeauty.xyz website demonstrates.
