Let American past help you to take back your home or business from menacing pests visit them today at American pest dot net. Fiat Chrysler is proposing a merger with the French automaker Renault, Reynaud says it's considering it, this merger would be a big deal. It would create the world's third biggest car company after Toyota and Volkswagen. Here's NPR's Camilo domino, sqi, a merger this big would be striking, but not totally surprising. Fiat Chrysler has been looking for a partner for a while. And there, there are limited partners available. Michelle crabs is an analyst with auto trader and Cox automotive. She says, meanwhile, the French Renault had a long standing alliance with the Japanese automaker Nissan that was working. Well, and then things went awry, when former CEO Carlos gone was arrest. Sted in Japan for alleged financial misdeeds and things have just been unraveling now both fiancee's and Reynaud are eyeing their options when it comes to who though partner with as they prepare for big changes in the industry. Many major, automakers have already been partnering up over the last couple of years. There are two reasons first after years of record growth. The auto industry is starting to slow down and that decline is expected to continue. Meaning fewer car sales less revenue at the same time, automakers need to be making big investments in the future things like electric vehicles and self driving cars, and it's a tough one, because you're investing in something that isn't profitable today isn't going to be full tomorrow, but might be profitable might be essential in ten years time. Mark Wakefield is an automotive consultant at Alex, partner's upstart companies like tesla and even ride hailing services like Uber and lift. They're bringing new competition. In response established carmakers are closing ranks towards each other to be able to share costs and to be able to invest through this like on. That's really what's driving a lot of these merger discussions in partnership discussions to Reynaud has been making electric vehicles for years, while Fiat Chrysler, has been lagging behind its decided to focus on money-making brands like Jeep, and ram, big pickups, and SUV's. Plus, it has premium brands like Maserati Reynaud is pushing smaller low cost vehicles Fiat Chrysler thrives in the Americas. Particularly in the United States. Reynaud doesn't sell cars in North America at all. But it's a major player in Europe and Russia that also like a pretty good fit. One has small cars in the other big trucks, one offers luxury vehicles. The other goes down market, but they feel have problem which is trying to Felipe Munoz is an analyst at auto researcher Jada. Dynamics. He says, neither company has a foothold in the crucial Chinese market. Then there are the practical problems of merging and not in another culture. I know the more factories that's more people to teach to work together, which Fiat Chrysler, has to do already since the merger that made it back in two thousand fourteen Blyleven cries which are Italians on American that way only but he's not an easy thing. And it would be even harder if you try to preserve the French Renos alliance with Nissan of Japan, another complication Reynaud is part owned by the French government and has strong unions. The want to preserve local jobs, Fiat Chrysler says the deal if it happens would not result in any plant closures. Camilo dominancy, NPR news.

"And the quarter auto trader analysts Michelle crabs talked to WW auto beat reporter, Jeff Gilbert. Well, this is the moment we've been waiting for we end -ticipant, it'd that we'd start seeing sales dip some and it looks like we're about right? We had been expecting in March sales would be down seven percent for the industry still a very healthy sixteen point eight million seasonally adjusted rate, but I'm down from from the peak, and again, we've been expecting this for a while. This actually is coming a little later than a lot of people expected. That's absolutely, correct. We had anticipated some of this last year, but then we got tax reform and in the first quarter of last year. There was a pretty much euphoria about how much tax reform would help. Well, it didn't help some people. And we're we're seeing. Some of that here in a we have been expecting this. We're seeing you know, there's been some volatility in the stock market and consumer confidence we've got a lot of uncertainty around trade policies and interest rate. So this is exactly what we expected from here. It's important to watch how the car companies respond will they you know, just just let the let the market settle in. Or will they boasted a bit with incentives and it varies by manufacturer. If you look at Honda, they had a better month than we end -ticipant, it'd and they don't do much in the way of incentives, and by the way, their car sales were up if you look at the at Chrysler, they had a lot of incentives out there, the ram outsold the Chevrolet Silverado. But there they had some very heavy incentive. So I think it's going to vary by manufacturer. The important thing to note is pick up and SUV sales of the market. They're still hanging in there. Yes. I mean trucks, and what utility vehicles are still the bulk of the market. We anticipate that will continue to be the case a lot of new sport utility vehicles coming that will wanna grab some sales and share. So we anticipate that will still be a vibrant part of the market, but a much more competitive as the pike shrinks of it. That's auto trader analysts Michelle crabs talking with our Jeff Gilbert.

"Traders Michelle crabs so Michelle what your take back in June when FCA laid out its five year plan it did. So and said we can do this plan on our own, but they made quite clear that they were interested in possible partnerships, especially in high tech areas, how good a fit would PSA be. If something were to happen. It could be very complimentary. Peugeot is way ahead on hybrids and electrification that Fiat Chrysler has not been so much at the same time. Fiat Chrysler has that treasure Jeep brand that everybody wants a piece of and so that would be attractive and PSA has been looking to come back into the US. And so it hasn't been real clear about how it will do that. But this there may be some possibilities there. Just because Chrysler is looking for deals with other carmakers doesn't mean they necessarily or go to have a merger. No. And in fact, what we are seeing right now are a lot of interesting. Connections. We've got GM with Honda. We've got Ford with VW. We're in this era where the market softening a bit globally, especially in China. And also at the same time automakers are having to invest a lot of money into electric vacation autonomous vehicles. And so I think a lot of companies are looking to share those costs not only are they investing in that. But at the same time they've got to keep their product line of fresh. Well, yes, all automakers have to maintain focus on today's business because that's what's generating the profits and revenues that will fuel the future and at the same time travel this road into the future. We don't know when that will arrive or when the prophets will arrive of that. But they have to keep working on this possible. The very different future ahead of us.

"With today's strong jobs report in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams in for David Brancaccio. The department of labor says US businesses added three hundred and twelve thousand jobs to their payrolls in December the unemployment rate also went up it's now at three point nine percent. That's partly because the labor force participation rate went up as well. With more people returning to the job market for some reaction to the latest numbers. I'm joined by Christopher Lowe, he's chief economist at FT and financial in New York. Good morning morning Kimberly with such a strong report. Now, everybody's wondering about the fed Jay Powell, the fed chairman blew it the last time, he communicated, and he has a chance to redeem himself, the smarting, hopefully, he will I you know, I think what the markets are looking for is some acknowledgement of the weakness in the global economy that the market has been reacting. To the slowdown that extends even into the United States. And the possibility that the fed perhaps is pushing things just a little too hard. But we have wages looking up. This blockbuster jobs report. What slowdown I've, well, certainly not all the data point to slow down. But GDP growth is slowing. It was four percent in the second quarter. It's still a growing economy, and it's one that's capable of creating employment and and wage growth, but it's not necessarily an economy that's bubbling over and I think from an interest rate perspective, that's really the key. Christopher Lowe is chief economist at F T N financial in New York. Thank you. Thank you, Kimberly despite rising interest rates and a rocky stock market consumers are still feeling good enough about the economy to keep buying cars and trucks auto sales in twenty eighteen were up about. Three tenths of a percent compared to the year before a slight increase. But better than analysts expected automakers reported on Thursday, they sold more than seventeen million new cars and light trucks last year. This was the fourth straight year car sales have been above seventeen million. Marketplace's Marielle Zegarra has been following this and Marielle what's driving car sales higher. I mean, look unemployment is low and consumer confidence is high. So people have money to spend and this past year, the new tax law gave people and companies companies, especially even more extra cash. So that could be part of it the tax also specifically gives businesses a tax break if the buy new trucks and SUV's so that may have compelled business owners who are on the fence to go for it starting last year. And when you look at the data this jump in sales was really driven by companies. So do we expect to see these numbers continue this year? Probably not. Michelle crabs is an executive analyst at auto trader, she says they're expecting auto sales to drop below seventeen million this year. We are an -ticipant twenty nineteen see lower vehicle sales as we'll twenty twenty. We think some of the has to do with the fact that there were some one wonders I call them that drove sales higher than expected in two thousand eighteen in those walnut exists. One hit wonders lay that initial boost from the new tax law and also keep in mind, it's going to get more expensive to borrow money to buy a car because the fed has been hiking interest rates and not means eventually interest rates throughout the economy, including on Car Loans are going to go up to Marielle. Thanks..
