Automotive executives talk about Russia and Ukraine

The 84th Geneva International Motor Show was full of exotic cars, a 24 hour of Leman’s hall and eco-friendly cars. In the background, in dimly lit rooms, in roundtables with executives, the questions were starting to filter in. All of the car manufacturers, European, American and Asian are concerned about the economic threat to a barely recovering world of automobiles. The Russia/Ukraine crisis is clouding the economic forecast.

Here, on video are Fiat Chrysler Automotive’s Sergio Marchionne, General Motor’s Dan Amman, and BMWs Hendrik von Kuenheim, Sales and Marketing BMW, Senior Vice President Region Asia, Pacific and South Africa (which includes Russia) talk about the Russia Ukraine crisis and what it means to the automobile economy.
