Electric cars being forced on Manufacturers so they can sell gas powered cars
Attention QQQ, BlueMoron and Scammy Sammy !
California — the biggest single market for cars in the U.S. — along with nine others — has set quotas for Unwanted Exotics. Fifteen percent of all cars sold in these states must be of the electrified variety by 2025. This a great deal more than the 80-odd electric Fits Honda has sold so far. And please, no eructations about the Great Success of Tesla. With a base price of $70,000 — $100k-plus for the one the papers like to gabble about that can go almost as far on a full charge as a $15,000 economy car with a quarter-full tank of gas — volume production of the Tesla is as likely as volume production of BMW M5s. Teslas are expensive toys — but unlike BMW M5s, the expense is financed by you and me and millions of our fellow tax-cattle.
California et al. have enacted production quotas that will compel each major car company to manufacture tens of thousands of electric cars each year. That is, they’ll be required to make more electric exotics in one year than the sum total of all of them produced to date. Manufacturers who do not comply face punitive fines .
no federal law says GM has to make electric cars. Feds say make this MPG by such date. Screw CA they have the craziest laws on earth. Since GM wants to make big clunkers that eat lots of gas they chose to make electric cars. Where is the one from Ford or Chrysler????????? Where is Hyundai and Kia electric cars. Oh well!!!!!!!
