Russia's luxury gain
It seems like it was just yesterday when we heard the news come in. Russia wants to build their own luxury manufacture. Sure we all had a good laugh as it was hard to believe that in the land of Lada and GAZ we could ever see a true contender to Mercedes and Bentley. But here we are today and this is no laughing matter. Russia was true to their word and today we have a few new models and a brand new motorcade for Putin.
Seems like the times are changing within the world of automobiles, as it wasn't that long ago that China only made poor domestic models and Russia only really had the good old Niva. Sure both countries had a few companies, but none of which could stand on a global scale and match the top dogs of the automotive world. But today it seems that a cold war within the automotive world is brewing as both China and Russia are set on world domination.
No that does not mean that we're about to have another arms race, but we are about to have another shift to the automotive production scale. Whereas now most vehicles are built within North America and Europe. This shift may move that scale to Asia, Eurasia and South America. Sure we will still have automotive production in North America and Europe, but not to the scale of today.
Should Canada adopt a similar look as Russia
