The Automotive Technology Coming to a City Near You

 

It’s easy to forget what things were like at the ground floor of something new. Back in the day, cell phones were a novelty, touch screens didn’t exist, text messages cost $.10, and landlines could be found in the majority of American homes. At the turn of the century, people were more focused on stock piling food for Y2K than negotiating data plans.

Looking back, it’s challenging to remember the days when roaming charges shaped a trip between cities. Yet cellular towers were popping up all over the country in preparation for the technological transition that would define a generation.

As soon as 2019, zero-emission automotive mandates will directly impact 40% of the global population.

A technological transition is again on the horizon, one that will define an automotive generation. Many don’t recognize it yet, but two decades from now, hydrogen fueling stations will be everywhere, on every street corner. Much like the popularity of today’s 4G and global communication infrastructure, hydrogen technology will be a staple in the global automotive landscape.

RONN Motor Group, Inc. believes that the way to a sustainable automotive future is through zero-emission all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell technology. To learn more about us, visit our website at www.ronnmotorgroup.com and follow us on FacebookInstagramTwitter and LinkedIn.

 

 

5 Business Concepts To Advance Innovation

1. Listen to Others: The best way to meet a need is to understand that there is one. We do that by listening to each other.
 
2. Think Outside the Box: A different point of view can hold the answers.
 
3. Never Accept Complacency: Always strive to make a better mousetrap; innovation depends on it.
 
4. Learn From Inpiring Individuals Who Have Set the Bar High: It’s always easier to see the answers from the shoulders of giants than by standing on your tip-toes.
 
5. Perseverance: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Always learn from your failures, let them inspire you rather than discourage you. The greatest innovations come from perseverance.  Stay in the game.
 
At RONN Motor Group, Inc., advancement and progress are our passion for innovation. We believe the future is counting on us to re-imagine new ways to create power.  Our refusal to remain complacent requires that we lead the charge.  To learn more about us, visit our website at www.ronnmotorgroup.com and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

The RONN Scorpion Turns Heads at Innovation Fair 2018

 

It would appear that RONN Motor Group, Inc.’s (RONN) coveted Scorpion supercar is now turning more heads than just the human kind. Hanson Robotics’ social humanoid robot Sophia got behind the wheel of the Scorpion on Tuesday at the Kadima Innovation Fair in Scottsdale, Arizona, where RONN was invited to participate.

 

 

 

Kadima Ventures is “a transformative collaboration of companies that offer resources to early-stage startups and legacy companies to evolve ideas into advanced technologies.” Innovation Fair 2018, an invite-only event, is an opportunity for the most transformative startup companies in the world to engage with strategically selected investors who are laser focused on driving innovation.

“It’s always an honor to be among like-minded individuals advancing global technology,” said Ronn Ford, Chairman and CEO of RONN Motor Group, Inc. “The ability to showcase our all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell platform as the future’s sustainable automotive option is something I’m passionate about and always welcome those who are interested in what we’re doing, from all walks of life, even robots.”

Barrett-Jackson Gearing Up To Feature the Heart and Soul of the Automotive Lifestyle

RONN Motor Group, Inc. (RONN) strives to advance the technology of the automotive future, but often times it is equally important to appreciate the history of the automotive past. There is no greater place to do that than at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, also known as “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction.”

Beginning January 13, 2018, and running until January 21, 2018, Barrett-Jackson will host its 47th annual auction at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona. Over the years, this event has evolved into a “world-class automotive lifestyle experience,” offering activities, demonstrations and attractions for people of all ages.

Future Technology Trends Showcase at the 2018 CES

 

The world’s most innovative tech companies are gearing up for this week’s global technology event, the 2018 CES in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since it’s launch in 1967, CES has grown more than 10 times with an estimated 170,000 attendees and 3,900 exhibiting companies from over 150 countries. From tech powerhouses to innovative startups, exhibitors will be showcasing all facets of technology Tuesday, January 9 through Friday, January 12. Such innovations will include everything from audio, vehicle technology and wireless to drones, augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, sensor tech and more.

Attendees will leave CES with a good grasp of the underlying technology trends that will shape the future and one area that has thrived in recent years: the merging of technology and transportation. Featuring the latest in concept cars, self-driving tech and connected vehicles, CES has been named one of USA Today’s 10 Best Automotive Shows as it’s focused on making cars safer and drivers more connected.

A new feature, CES will now display a section devoted to smart cities as companies work to alleviate traffic, urban congestion and reduce pollution over the next decade. Steve Koenig, senior director for market research with the Consumer Technology Association told the Huffington Post, “CTA projects global spending on smart cities will reach $34.35B by 2020, so we think it’s important to have a dedicated conference program and exhibition focused on this global initiative. This remarkable growth will influence tech industry growth, change the way we think about cities and address global ills. We want to help our attendees gain a better and more comprehensive sense of this trend and help encourage the continued development of smart cities.”

Companies such as RONN Motor Group, Inc. (RONN) are supportive of events such as CES, keenly aware that looking to the future to predict necessary, worldwide change is a gift of the technologically minded; however, in a world of dreamers, only a few are driven enough to bring their visionary technology to market. RONN is actively advancing the global automotive market with all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell technology, paving a path of clean technology as the world races toward a zero-emission future beginning in 2019.  To learn more about us, visit our website at www.ronnmotorgroup.com and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Through a year of change and challenge, here are a few of the stories that inspired RONN CEO Ronn Ford in 2017 and fueled his passion to advance the future in 2018. Below are his thoughts on each:

George Lucas' Amazing Story

This is the story of how Star Wars almost never happenedHere's a free tool to help you on your path to success: https://goo.gl/9RrXm2

Posted by Goalcast on Sunday, December 10, 2017

When walking out a visionary pursuit, one must stay adamantly focused on the goal. Clips such as this remind me that accomplished dreams are always preceded by challenging obstacles, unimaginable sacrifice and those who speak boldly against you.  Two traits that I have learned along my entrepreneurial journey that every entrepreneur must develop: perseverance and a high tolerance for pain. Stay the course. Overcome. The future is waiting for your story.


2017 was the year that I personally saw decades of work come to fruition. The emotions in this clip represent things that I experienced firsthand this year, and the lessons in this film are important for everyone to learn:  

Put yourself in front of the right people.  

Never be afraid to ask.  

You can overcome one obstacle after another.  

Never let them see you cry.  

There are rewards for hard work.  

Walk with integrity.  

Meet the Man Who Turned His Furniture Stores Into Shelters for Harvey Victims


As a native Texan, Hurricane Harvey hit too close to home. Observing the American spirit rise up to support those in need made me proud of humanity and those I call family. Observing the actions of Mattress Mack reminded me that there are likeminded individuals in the world who set out to care for people, willing to step up and take action in a time of need, with no thought of personal gain.

Gilbert dealership gives truck to veteran who saved dozens during Vegas shooting

B5 Motors in Gilbert is giving away a free truck to a veteran who saved dozens of lives during the terrifying Las Vegas shooting last Sunday. Marine veteran Taylor Winston is being hailed a hero after saving dozens of lives during the mass shooting when he stole a truck and transported critically injured victims to the hospital.

Humility at its finest. Heroism honored as it should be.


Selfless individuals who set out to make life better for those with unique challenges hits close to home. One of the greatest rewards a human can receive is the feeling of helping someone who cannot help himself. This is a perfect example. Nothing is accomplished in this world without the help from others.

Bill Gates is building his own city, and he’s loading it with smart tech

Bill Gates used his smarts to become one of the most successful people on the planet, so it only makes sense that he would make a smart city. Earlier this month, a group headed by Gates’ investment group Cascade Investment LLC purchased a large plot of land just outside of Phoenix, Arizona to build this vision of a smart future.

It is my passion to make the world a better place, to leave it better than when I entered it. I dream of the day when communities are able to function with efficiency, utilizing natural resources to power our world.

10 mindblowingly futuristic technologies that will appear by the 2030s

Two decades is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but owing to accelerating change we can expect to see the emergence of some fairly disruptive technological innovations in the coming years. Here are 10 mindblowingly futuristic technologies that should appear by the 2030s.

I love to envision the future. What will it look like? What advances will be made? I constantly seek out ways to educate myself and others about what could be possible, pushing the envelope of technology.   Plus, I find this all incredibly fascinating.

Forget the Past

“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” ( Isaiah 43: 18-19 NKJV).

My faith is the greatest aspect of what makes me who I am. My deeply rooted belief in the redemptive work of a Father is pivotal to how I live my life and how I treat others in my personal life as well as in the corporate arena. I am a firm believer that all people have a purpose to fulfill, and I walk out each day in order to fulfill that purpose.

I appreciate beautiful things, and the Grand Canyon is one of my favorite places to visit.  It is breathtaking and reminds me that there has to be One that is greater than us. Thoughts of pride quickly disappear at the Grand Canyon, and we are reminded that we have been entrusted as caretakers of what we have been given.

What Leaders Have To Say About The Future of Transportation

 

Words are a powerful tool especially when crafted by influential leaders, individuals with the power to bring the past into perspective and mold the future into action. As the year draws to a close, we would like to share our list of the top 10 quotes that are shaping tomorrow’s transportation industry:

On Zero-Emission Technology:

“Nothing can stop the car being the most coveted product that comes with development, and more efficient conventional engines are not the answer. We must have zero-emission vehicles. Nothing else will prevent the world from exploding.” -Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault and Nissan

 “Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, with a zero-emission capability, represent the future of the automobile. These vehicles will be the fastest growing segment of the auto market by 2050. By 2021, at least 10 brands will be selling hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. By this time, hydrogen fueling infrastructures will be sufficiently developed in several regions to allow large-scale hydrogen mobility.” -Naqui Jaffery, the lead author of Information Trend’s report Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicles: A Global Analysis

On Alternative Energy:

“We’re betting that within 15 years, scientists and engineers will develop big breakthroughs that will put us on a path to zero carbon emissions and make energy more affordable for everyone.” –Bill Gates

“We need to surprise them that these alternative ways of doing energy can come along and come along in an economic way. If we are to avoid the levels of warming that are dangerous we need to move at full speed.” –Bill Gates

 On Design:

“Design is going to be increasingly important. When you move to electric vehicles, you’re not interacting anymore with a complex mechanical gasoline engine where the engine noise and response varies extremely from different car companies. So I think values from buyers in the future are going to shift. We’re all going to expect fast acceleration, instant torque that we have in acceleration – but we’re going to start looking at other ways to entice the buyer. Exterior and interior design. The user interface. The ride and handling.” -Henrik Fisker, noted auto designer

“People spend a great deal of time in their vehicles. The interior is where they live and where they feel secure to fully express who they are. After all, automobiles are about people. And this company is built with more than transportation in mind. It’s built for individuals.” –Ronn Ford, Chairman and CEO of RONN Motor Group, Inc.

On Manufacturing:

3D printing is used extensively for prototyping in product development today to accelerate design cycles and enable designers to efficiently explore multiple options. Typically, these designs were manufactured in analog processes like injection molding, but in the future, parts will be manufactured using 3D print.” -Dr. Paul Benning, HP fellow and 3D print chief technologist at HP, Inc.

“I think one of the main advantages … is to be able to adjust and adapt the whole production line with the speed of the 3D printing production lines.  For example, if we want to improve something on our machine, it’s easy – it’s just one click away. For another technology like injection, it’s not one click away; it’s two to three months away. You’d have to change molds, ship it, make sure it’s ready and working, and then start producing.” -Matt Regnier, CEO of Dagoma 3D

On The Past:

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” -Old Native American Proverb

On The Future:

“I really do encourage other manufacturers to bring electric cars to market. It’s a good thing, and they need to bring it to market and keep iterating and improving and make better and better electric cars, and that’s what is going to result in humanity achieving a sustainable transport future.” –Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, Inc.

Luxury Brands Debut Zero-Emission Future at 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

The 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show wrapped up on Monday, Dec. 10th after 10 days dedicated to unveiling “the future of mobility in the car culture capital of the world.”  Launched in 1907 in a skating rink with 99 cars, the L.A. Auto Show was the first of its kind on the West Coast and the largest show west of Chicago with 3,000 attendees.  110 years later, it is still one of the most sought-after venues with nearly 1,000 vehicles on display in the world’s No. 1 car-buying market.

This year’s show was met with anticipation and curiosity as upcoming designs, both under the hood and stylistically, were on display for the public to see.  Fueling methods of future automobiles played a part as one significant industry shift, and there is no other place more fitting to display zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) than The Golden State.

“There’s no question that this is the show where automakers want to talk about alternative fuel and alternative power trains,” said Joe Wiesenfelder, the executive editor of Cars.com. “In California especially, it’s such a hot segment.”

California currently has more than 284,000 ZEVs on its roads with over 20 models on the market. With a challenging statewide goal of 1.5M ZEVs cumulatively by 2025, this is the niche market on which many automakers are focusing.

Across the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center, brands such as BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, Volvo, Audi and VW, just to name a few, touted shiny debut and concept ZEVs for the masses to behold.

With global mandates for a zero-emission future quickly approaching as soon as 2019, automakers were educating on-lookers about upcoming ZEVs.  While many vehicles on display were plug-in hybrids, BMW promised 25 electric models by 2025, and Mercedes-Benz plans to beat that, offering electric versions of every car in its lineup by 2022.  VW was committed to 50 electric models and 30 hybrids across all its brands — Audi, Porsche, SEAT and Skoda — by 2025.

Audi of America’s president, Scott Keogh said, “Our customers are highly educated, part of the creative class. They want to make a difference. They’re the kind of customers who want to buy cool things.”  The brand plans to offer three all-electric vehicles by 2020.

BMW board member Klaus Frölich told reporters, “For us, electric mobility is the new normal… We will deliver whatever powertrain our customers desire.”  These sentiments are becoming commonplace among automakers as realization sets in that fossil fuel will no longer be the go-to option in the next two decades with plug-in electrics and all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles approaching at an alarming rate.

RONN Motor Group, Inc. is a global leader in zero-emission, long-range transportation platforms, committed to merging globally conscious solutions with the human experience.  Its full-line range of all electric-hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles will encompass automobiles, intercity buses, fleet delivery and light-duty trucks, as well as future Hypercars, bridging the gap between electrification and a fuel-cell future.

Right now anyone has the limited opportunity to invest in a forward-moving company like RONN Motor Group, Inc. through Regulation A+.  Investment opportunities once limited to high net worth individuals are now accessible to everyone.  For those who believe that a zero-emission future and dynamic automotive design can be attained hand-in-hand, there is still time to invest.  Together we can accelerate the future.
