“The California Air Resources Board is being incredibly weak in its application of ZEV credits. The standards are pathetically low. They need to be increased.”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is rather enraged and even calling on CARB “to be ashamed of themselves.” His words come at a time when CARB is reviewing regulation and is in danger to give in to lobbying pressure by conventional carmakers.
“EVs are our compensation for V12s.”
Says Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. Question is if they can build enough EV to make up for all that upcoming supercars the British have scheduled?!
“Within five years you’ll only have electric garbage trucks. Nobody will buy a diesel engine garbage truck.”
Ian Wright, formerly Tesla and founder of Wrightspeed today, gives a bright outlook for a future when garbage collection will finally be silent. Still, the company’s trucks use a natural gas turbine to recharge the batteries on board.
