Four car companies have got new chief executives this week. What does it all mean for the cars you'll be seeing down the road?
Ford will now be run by Mark Fields. To a degree this means more of the same. Ford's boss since 2006, Alan Mulally, managed to turn around an over-complex company hamstrung by internal battles as well as crippling financial debt. He sold off Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin, Volvo and Ford's stake in Mazda, not necessarily because they were losing money (they weren't all, not all the time) but because they were a distraction. He wanted to see the whole of Ford focussed on sorting out a unified global range of cars.
