His word isn’t gospel and he doesn’t have say over Govt Authorities or Govt Decision Makers. I could say the same statement and it doesn’t mean squat.
Vehicle Manufactures across the planet will be incentivized to go EV because they will get $$$ kickbacks as well as certain discounts or breaks on taxes to cease ICE production.
While no one wants ICE vehicle production to stop, we (the peons) don’t have control – well…. unless of course everyone wants to riot in the streets about it…. and create this or that “hashtag” as to why ICE should remain as the primary platform for mode of transportation and cry as to how or why EV isn’t the future.
