Piech leaves VW after bruising board battle

Volkswagen is entering a new era after the abrupt resignation of controversial chairman Ferdinand Piech, who transformed the world’s second-largest carmaker by sales into an automotive powerhouse but frequently irked investors.

Piech departure leaves VW with void to fill

The resignation of Ferdinand Piech, the dominant fierce at Volkswagen for more than two decades, leaves a void at the top of the German carmaker, comparable to Apple without Steve Jobs. Although senior directors became ever more frustrated with the chairman’s campaign to topple CEO Martin Winterkorn in recent days, none of them really believed he would walk away from his life’s work.

Drivers’ details sold to parking firms for £31m

The number of personal driver records being sold to parking companies has increased more than ten-fold in less than a decade amid growing concerns that motorists are being used as “cash cows”. During 2006-07 the number of records obtained by parking firms was 272,000.

Oil-price crash due to wipe out two-thirds

Shell is expected to reveal this week that the collapse in the price of oil has wiped two-thirds off its first-quarter profits. The company has been hit hard by the economic and geopolitical forces set against the price of oil, which at $65 (£42.80) per barrel costs little more than half as much as it did last summer, in spite of recent gains.

Volvo benefits as Beijing steers away from bling

Drive in the traffic-clogged streets of Shanghai, where red lights and stop signs are often ignored rather than obeyed, and it’s obvious why China is Volvo’s biggest market. With a history of producing the safest cars on the road, the Swedish company’s vehicles are much in demand in China from drivers who want to protect themselves and their passengers.
