Forbes: "When Will The Motor Industry Self-Destruct?"
What will it take for Legacy Auto to wake up and smell the fresh air? Newcomers like Google and Tesla have not convinced legacy ICE-makers to "self-destruct" and re-invent themselves into companies that do _not_ produce products that make smoke.
From the article:
"...Although [Ford] has cancelled its investment in a conventional plant in Mexico after being trolled and harassed by Donald Trump and instead will inject $700 million in a factory in Michigan dedicated to electrified vehicles, most of those electric vehicles are in fact hybrids. Please note the difference: _electrified_, not _electric_. And we all know, that whatever the automobile industry says, its commitment to hybrids is just an irresponsible and unethical way of prolonging the life of the internal combustion engine."
