Research performed by staff writer for Liberty Buick GMC Trucks demonstrates that the powerful earthquake in Japan may cause waves of business for the U.S. automotive industry in Charlotte, Matthews and Monroe, NC!
The combination the 2011 Tsunami disaster, in addition to the Libyan fuel crisis, may affect the availability of many economy cars. Fortunately, this should not affect the American automotive industry as heavily. Popular hybrid vehicles, such as the GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon and Denali Hybrid pickup trucks and sports utility vehicles, will not suffer a major manufacturing slow down due the disturbing natural events.
Shockwaves from Japan’s most powerful earthquake in history may be felt in the auto industry as far away as Charlotte, Lake Norman, Monroe and Matthews, NC. Yet another great reason to buy a GMS Sierra 1500 Hybrid Truck in Charlotte, NC!
According to news sources, “the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in at least 100 years unleashed walls of water Friday.” The epicenter was located at a mere 370 kilometers (230 miles) away from Tokyo, Japan.
The Japanese auto industry has been significantly impacted by Japan’s a catastrophic tsunami and multiple aftershocks. The physical damage caused by the horrific natural disaster has forced one of Japan’s major auto parts suppliers to shut down. This in turn, has forced most of the country’s top automakers to halt production for at least the next few days, according to a recent news article.
Should this shut down last for more than a few weeks, it could be devastating for some of the affected automotive manufacturing companies, according to Paul Taylor, chief economist for the National Automobile Dealers Association. Many of Japanese economy and subcompact vehicles could suffer quickly, because many of them are manufactured in Japan.
The GMC Sierra Hybrid has been shown to have the “best-in-class” fuel economy. This amazing heavy-duty utility vehicle can even operate up to 30 miles per hour in electric-only mode. It even has a 40% improvement in city fuel economy when compared to non-hybrid models. It manages to do all of this and still use its powerful 6.0L V8 engine for any towing and hauling capabilities expected from a full-size GMC pickup.
These impressive trucks may be found at any of the Charlotte, Matthews or Monroe Liberty Buick GMC dealer locations. For more information on the new GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon & Denali Hybrids, visit www.clickliberty.com or call 888-306-1908.
