- "It’s time to introduce a hydrogen era," said Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo as he announced a government initiative to build out a self-service hydrogen network of stations.
- The development comes only two days after Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk called hydrogen a "dumb" energy storage system.
- Toyota (NYSE:TM) is the pioneer in the FCV field and is building 1.5K Mirai vehicles for the Japanese government. Though taking a cautious approach to rolling out production, the world's top-selling automaker isn't ruling out selling hydrogen cars in all markets eventually.
- Review: Car and Driver's deep dive into the Toyota Mirai FCV.
- Related: Toyota opens up 5680 patents on fuel-cell technology to other automakers.
- What to watch: Abe has endorsed larger fuel-cell subsidies than those offered for electric vehicles in China, Europe, and the U.S. Will more governments take a side in the hydrogen vs electric battle setting up in the automobile industry?

- The spinoff of Ferrari could give Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU) enough breathing room to seek a merger partner, according to auto industry analysts.
- The rising cost of developing clean cars in Europe and the U.S. sets the stage for automakers to join forces through mergers and extended partnerships.
- "Eventually it must happen," notes FCA chief Sergio Marchionne on the topic of mega-mergers.
- No company is too big to be ruled out of the merger discussions due to the benefits of scaling investment costs and matching strengths/weaknesses in Europe, Latin America, China, and the U.S, note insiders.

- A tense period of negotiations between the UAW and the Detroit Three (GM, F, FCAU) automakers is expected to build in advance of the expiration of current labor contracts in September of 2015.
- The labor group is looking to close a large gap between hourly wages for automobile industry entry-level workers and legacy employees.
- What to watch: There will be a thin line for the UAW in pushing for its increases without giving Japanese automakers OTCPK:NSANY, TM, HMC, OTCPK:MZDAY, OTCPK:SZKMY, OTCPK:FUJHY, OTCPK:MMTOF an edge over the Detroit Three.

- Automobile recalls in the U.S. now number over 60M this year to set a new record, according to a tally from Bloomberg.
- The mind-numbing total is over double the prior annual recall record with Japanese automakers (OTCPK:NSANY, TM, HMC, OTCPK:MZDAY, OTCPK:SZKMY, OTCPK:FUJHY, OTCPK:MMTOF) taking the hardest hits due to exposure to Takata.
- Though automakers see legal and operational costs increase when recalls soar, the impact on the brand in many cases is short-lived.
- Despite having a year to forget amid a public relations headache, General Motors (NYSE:GM) is a top pick in the sector for many analysts.
- The title of SA contributor Alpha Hungry's recent piece indicates where the investor stands: My Best Idea For 2015: General Motors.

- The age of connected cars appears closer with Google pushing forward with its next-gen Android M software designed to be integrated into automobiles.
- The industry has a bit of an uneasy relationship with Google, despite the company's open-source approach to the technology.
- Though most major automakers collaborate with Google through the Open Automotive Alliance - which aims for a common platform to drive innovation - the self-driving car initiative of Google and their own infotainment ambitions keep them wary.
- Analysts originally forecast vehicle-to-vehicle communication would be part of the connected car concept and be integrated into some models by 2016, although that timetable now appears unlikely.
- What to watch: Before any major breakthrough occurs, the DOT needs to weigh in on next-gen connected cars. That gets trickier with safety and security concerns teed up again after the high-profile GM recall debacle and crippling Sony hacking incident.

- Three Japanese automakers, Honda (NYSE:HMC), Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) and Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MMTOF), will recall more than half a million cars globally to replace potentially deadly air bag inflators made by Takata (OTCPK:TKTDY).
- The announcement brings the total tally of Takata-related recalls across all brands to around 20M since 2008.
- A Honda spokeswoman added that the automaker will need to set aside more reserves as a result of the new move and the global expansion of a region-specific recall in the U.S. earlier this week.

- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is seeking the recall of "millions of vehicles" containing Takata (OTCPK:TKTDY) airbags, and the DoT agency will "use the full extent of its statutory powers" to force action if Takata and auto manufacturers fail to "quickly agree" to a recall.
- Cars had been recalled only in areas along the Gulf coast with high humidity, but the NHTSA says it is basing the decision on a recent incident that happened outside of those areas.
- NHTSA also orders Takata and all 10 auto companies that use Takata's air bag inflators - BMW (OTCPK:BAMXY, OTCPK:BAMXF), Chrysler (NYSE:FCAU), Ford (NYSE:F), GM, Honda (NYSE:HMC), Mazda (OTCPK:MZDAY), Mitsubishi (OTCPK:MMTOF), Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY, OTCPK:NSANF), Subaru (OTCPK:FUJHY), and Toyota (NYSE:TM) - to provide detailed reports about ongoing testing of the products outside of the high-humidity regions that already had recalls in place.

- The landmark emissions deal struck between the U.S. and China has implications for the automobile industry even if it is largely symbolic, according to analysts.
- There's some speculation that bickering between the nations over spying and other free trade issues won't reel in China-Western auto joint ventures and impact government EV subsidies as the nation stays focused on pollution control.
