Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Odar Rapids Gazette: Sod July 21, H715A Auto Firms Of Europe Feel Pinch BONN (UPI) — Automobiles are crowding the European highways this summer as if the fuel crisis never happened But not so many of them are new ones. And some automotive industry leaders predict that in some countries this will be the worst year car manufacturers have had in a long time. In Germany, Volkswagen Chairman Rudolf Coding moaned that “1474 without a doubt will be the hardest year in the history of the VW works The company has announced it expects to end the year in the red for the first time Holland’s PAF Company Director Leo Van Dongen said, “The measures around the oil crisis, to wit fuel restrictions, car-less Sundays and speed limits, have shaken the faith of drivers in the free use of the automobile in such a way that the purchase of replacement of the automobile was delayed and the money used for buying some other durable goods." A spokesman for France’s Renault works voiced a more optimistic view saying, “Most people are already forgetting the gasoline price hike and by the end of the- year large models will be selling again ’ One thing seems clear — between the cost and price increases on the one hand and psychological factors on the other, Europe’s auto producers, like their American and Japanese counterparts, are in for a hard time in the near future. With few exceptions, domestic sales have plummeted, as have exports Production cutbacks. which resulted in large-scale lay-offs together with price inc Teases, combined into a vicious circle whose end result has been an even smaller demand for the automobile In West Germany production in the first four months of this year was 17.1 percent below 1973. In the first quarter. Holland's output decreased 32.5 percent, and Great Britain's was down 19.2 percent.
