The big car companies are essentially betting the farm on EVs.I have no interest. Do you own one? I think of all the individuals who post here, only Rumble and Steve G own some sort of non ICE vehicle.
GM can "pledge" (aka posture) all they want. They don't want to be on the wrong side of the twitter mob. No one does.
Therefore, it will happen. As they move to electric, the car companies will be very receptive to stronger environmental standards on vehicles.
