“The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.”
Mary Nichols, chairman of the California Air Resources Board, quotes a message of Californian’s governor Jerry Brown, who asks why China is able to announce a future ban on combustion-powered vehicles, while California is not.

“You’re absolutely right @elonmusk. Here the missing zero: Investing >$10bn in nxt gen EVs & >$1bn in battery prod.”
This is how Daimler reacted on Elon Musk’s tweet, we published yesterday at this point. In his message, the Tesla CEO made fun about the Germans, investing not more than 1bn dollars in the States. A statement that obviously provoked Daimler to emphasize its total electric mobility investment.
