Big automakers are planning to introduce several new models of electric vehicles in the coming year, though the demise of a hoped-for subsidy may keep sales sluggish in the short term.
It’s funny. It used to be that Tesla was the only company saying electric was the future, but now pretty much every automaker is staking their future on this. Concern over climate change is mounting, and there’s a lot of pressure to make this happen.
There are some disagreements in the industry over how long it’ll take, exactly, but everyone’s racing to switch over factories and supply chains and design all these new vehicles. You know, this coming year, Ford is going to start delivering the electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck.
