Automotive News Canada will encompass print, online and email publications focusing on automakers, franchised car dealers and original equipment suppliers. Its coverage will include technology, regulation, sales, production and upcoming vehicles. A web-based version at <http://www.automotivenews.ca> and weekly electronic newsletter will launch in the spring, followed by the debut monthly print edition in July. Automotive News Canada will be headed by publisher Jason Stein, editor-in-chief Jeff Melnychuk and editor Joe Knycha.
"Automotive News Canada marks an opportunity to grow in North America with a product written by Canadians and for Canadians," said Stein. "The Automotive News brand has never been stronger, and we will reinforce it by covering the issues that matter to Canadian dealers, automakers and their original equipment suppliers. We look forward to launching in this market and expanding our breadth of global automotive expertise and top-notch journalism."
