Joerg-Hofmann“It’s a real tragedy how auto manufacturers, suppliers and the government are shoving responsibility to and fro.”

Jörg Hofmann, head of IG-Metall (German Industrial Union of Metalworkers), adds his voice to a choir of German industrialists and politicians demanding local battery cell production. Yet, neither the public nor the private sector seems willing to make the first move in the face of strong Asian competition.

bob-lutz“I like Elon Musk personally, and I think the Model S is a fabulous car, but history’s filled with defunct companies with great products run by brilliant people. Unless Tesla rights its organization and products in a hurry, it’ll join those ranks.”

Industry veteran Bob Lutz adopts the role of a caring yet worried elder as he advises Tesla to cut costs and consider to offer a hybrid. Lutz believes that otherwise “at some point they will not get any more money.”

Yoshikazu-Tanaka“At the point we believe the SUV would be very attractive as an FCV, we will do that.”

This was said by Toyota Mirai chief engineer Yoshikazu Tanaka ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show. A fuel cell SUV thus seems to be a question of when rather than if.
