Carlos Ghosn, Steve Wozniak, Elmar Degenhart.

Carlos-Ghosn“When we started making EVs in 2008, there was no battery capable of supporting an electric car. So we decided to do it ourselves. The situation today in 2016 is completely different.”

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi CEO Carlos Ghosn explains why Nissan is “going to rely more and more on batteries by existing suppliers,” thus moving away from its in-house production and towards “powerhouses” of the battery industry.

Steve-Wozniak“I’m still considering the Bolt. It had a lot of things nicer about it than the Tesla. But I’m concerned about how it would work on our favored road trips. So far, Tesla’s the only game in town for that.”

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has deviated from his initial plan to buy a Chevy Bolt and decided to go for another Tesla instead. Supercharging swung his vote.

Elmar-Degenhart“The diesel passenger car could sooner or later disappear from these markets.”

Continental CEO Elmar Degenhart says VW’s dieselgate could bear fruits in North America, Japan and China, where diesel cars only hold a small percentage of the market share. He contradicts the company’s financial chief who said last month that the scandal will most likely not impact sales.

OPEC-Logo100“Without a technology breakthrough, battery electric vehicles are not expected to gain significant market share in the foreseeable future.”

OPEC believes (or should we say ‘hopes’) that by 2040, some 94 percent of cars will still run on petrol. That includes hybrids. And by keeping oil prices low, OPEC is doing everything it can to make that dream come true…
