    New cars for export wait for shipping at a seaport in Yantai, China on September 7, 2021.Feature China | Barcroft Media | Getty Images BEIJING — Chinese authorities will allow full foreign ownership of passenger car manufacturing in the country beginning Jan. 1, 2022. That's according to a release Monday from the Ministry of Commerce and the National Development and Reform Commission, the country's top economic planning agency. The document was one of the government's regular releases on industries barred from foreign investment. The 2021 version published Monday did not include passenger car manufacturing. The 2020 edition of the list had promised the change would come in 2022. China has gradually peeled back limits on foreign ownership in the domestic auto industry. However, Monday's release still included 31 areas in which foreign investment is banned or restricted, including rare earths, film production and distribution, and tobacco products. In industries such as medical institutions, foreign entities must form joint ventures with local partners, which typically have the majority stake.Read more about electric vehicles from CNBC ProWall Street analysts pick their favorite...

    In 2021, Jordan Myers bought his dream car: A Tesla Model 3.CNBC Make It Tesla is issuing a software update that will keep drivers from being able to play video games on the car's entertainment system while the automobile is moving, according to a statement on Thursday from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHTSA said on Wednesday that it had opened an investigation covering 580,000 Tesla Model 3, Model S, and Model X cars that were sold between 2017 and 2022 after receiving a complaint in August.

    A product manager at Mercedes once told me that he expected to see more changes in cars and the car business in the next 20 years than we’ve seen in the past 75. That was 6 1/2 years ago, and so far, his prediction has been spot on; I struggle to think of a consumer business now undergoing a more total transformation than what’s happening in automobiles. The first revolution is electrification. Encouraged by environmental regulations and accelerated by competition from Elon Musk’s electric car juggernaut, Tesla, much of the industry plans to abandon its defining technology, the gas-powered engine, in favor of electric motors and batteries. Then there’s autonomous driving. While the fully self-driving car remains far off, many cars are beginning to pick up the routine drudgeries and avoid the sudden catastrophes of your daily commute. Cars can brake for pedestrians, change lanes and keep pace with other cars on the road, even in stop-and-go traffic. Some, like models bearing General Motors’ Super Cruise system, don’t even require you to keep a hand on the wheel. And finally,...

    By Jill Lawless and Danica Kirka | Associated Press LONDON — British authorities raised the country’s threat level to its second-highest rung on Monday, after police said a blast in a taxi outside a Liverpool hospital was caused by a homemade bomb. Investigators said they were treating Sunday’s explosion — which killed the suspected bombmaker and injured the cab driver — as a terrorist incident, but that the motive was unclear. The Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre raised the U.K. threat level from substantial — meaning an attack is likely — to severe, meaning it is highly likely, following the U.K.’s second fatal incident in a month. Conservative lawmaker David Amess was stabbed to death in October in what police said was an act of terrorism. Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the “sickening attack” at Liverpool Women’s Hospital and told reporters that the British people “will never be cowed by terrorism.” “We will never give in to those who seek to divide us with senseless acts of violence,” he said. The male passenger in a taxi was killed and the driver...
    The wife of Liverpool cabbie David Perry says it is an 'utter miracle' he survived after a bomb carried by a passenger exploded in the back of his taxi.  CCTV captured the moment Mr Perry's cab became a fireball outside the reception of Liverpool Women's Hospital, shortly before the 11am two-minute silence was due to take place on Remembrance Sunday yesterday.  The huge blast blew out the windows of cab, though Mr Perry incredibly managed to stagger to safety six seconds later. Experts believe Mr Perry's survival may have been down to the bomb not working properly - with one suggesting the detonators exploded but failed to set off the main charge.  Others have suggested that the partition screen between him and the passenger saved his life.     Now, his wife has revealed Mr Perry is 'doing ok but is extremely sore', while adding that his escape was an 'utter miracle'.  Rachel Perry wrote on Facebook: 'I would just like to thank each and every one of you who has messaged asking how David is. He is doing ok but is extremely sore and...
