Barbie Extra Car is an over-the-top LA Auto Show debut for kids

This sparkly roadster should provide an extra thrill for little ones attending this week’s LA Auto Show.


Mattel

Auto shows might just be the best way to get a sense of what you might want to park in your driveway next, but they’re also excellent family outings, in part because there are always things to catch a child’s eye and capture their imagination. At this week’s LA Auto Show, there’s a good chance one of those things will be the Barbie Extra Car, a full-size two-seat convertible designed to promote Mattel’s range of fashion dolls and accessories.

While the Extra Car’s over-the-top exterior won’t give you many hints as to this roadster’s underlying chassis, the dashboard and seats in the cabin just might.

Car buyers cancel bookings as auto companies delay Diwali deadline

Car buyers have started to cancel bookings which they made in anticipation that they would be able to take deliveries during the festive days as manufacturers continue to struggle to align supplies with demand.

Automotive dealers have seen a spike in the number of booking cancellations in the run up to Diwali in the past few weeks. While booking cancellations are normal in the automotive retail business, the level of cancellations this year is unusually high, say dealers.

“Enquiry levels and demand is very strong for passenger vehicles but along with that cancellations are also increasing because we are not able to commit the delivery date.
