I wonder if that would wake up any part of their sadly vacant brains. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Both GM and Ford are going to eliminate fossil fueled automobiles by 2035. Here are others automobile makers who are going electric: GM said it plans to phase out gas-powered vehicles by 2035 an exact date for an all-EV line. The effort starts, however, with plans for 20 all-electric vehicles by 2023. Ford created the EV-dedicated “Team Edison” to focus on the development of all-electric cars. The automaker also pledged to invest $4.5 billion over five years on new all-electric and hybrid vehicles, with 13 new models slated for release by 2023. Toyota and Mazda recently announced that they’re teaming up with auto-parts manufacturer Senso to create a new company to develop basic EV technology for use across multiple vehicle types and models, expanding beyond Toyota’s Prius line. The two Japanese carmakers also pledged to build a $1.6 billion U.S.-based plant by 2021, where they’ll work on electric and hybrid vehicles. Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, will invest $1 billion in an Alabama plant to produce all-electric SUVs and build a battery facility, and $10 billion in EV development overall. Mercedes-Benz outlined a plan to electrify its “entire portfolio” by 2022, offering 50 electric and hybrid models. The Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi alliance will work together to develop new systems to use across their vehicle lines, with a focus on “purely electric” EVs like the Nissan Leaf. The automakers plan to release 12 all-electric models by 2022. Before you start crying that China and other countries are a big polluters: China, the world’s biggest car market, is working on an outright ban on gas-powered vehicles to combat air pollution and is ramping up efforts to build out electric driving infrastructure. France and the UK announced that new gas and diesel vehicles will be banned by 2040, and other countries like Norway and India have established their own goals for EV adoption. There hasn’t been any talk of gas bans in the U.S., but there are efforts to promote electric and hybrid vehicles at the state level. The point is not to totally eliminate fossil fuel, but to eliminate the CO2 that cars put in our atmosphere. A typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. Automobile drive is one of the biggest polluters an contributors to greenhouse gases. LikeLike Reply Sell them in China. I suppose you think turbines and solar can create the electricity they need.
