Which has its global sales debut here in the states in December we thought that this market soon to launch the vehicle so we're very excited about a particular tell. Well congratulations on the Camelot going on there now -- brands it used to be owned by board but were sold off during the financial crisis what has -- the biggest. Change at the company since that time. The biggest change actually is the thought that -- news which -- talks rocks and salsa. Has encouraged a significant investment in brand new products we currently investing. Three billion dollars -- -- it in broad new vehicles I think we've not started to see that the -- -- particular investment. We have the Range -- evoke that was launched this time last year which when the North American truck of the year. As a mentioned as does the three of the vehicle's launch of -- show today. In addition to the all wheel drive -- -- is for the first time. But a -- you accept Saddam just the two miles per gallon so.

The hit show mad men had an entire story line -- built around problems in the sixties you -- is sought to tackle some of that. I think this. You have to build its aspects about reputation buddies it's disappearing fast I don't think. Nowadays it's more about functionality in the -- that the US consumer really able to functionality. In terms of the entertainment system into the electronics -- the -- It's what it's about reliability of these days we doubts about in the industry tells really breaking down that's what appeals circus but in terms of functionality. And convenience and and comfort -- See the future. Cars going right now of course the overwhelming majority still run on gas but you see this.

I think it's really -- you know we told everybody is moving forward because I think it's common -- -- that would compete with each of you know you don't wanna see anybody going through a struggle because -- -- about perception about industry and I think of the second round of the Detroit three has been have been fantastic news for the US -- It's been bad news for the rest of the complex disease clearly we compete more against BMW Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. It's nice to see people -- of doing so well. And what is down the road then for each of you are brands can you give us a little peek into the future. Well we're investing is of it should be full three billion dollars a year in research and development about means -- An enormous put cadence -- of the market and we've got these three vehicles hit today -- I think -- -- from the company.
