ICE cars are still 95%+ of global sales. Even horses took longer to be phased out. And I still believe that due to inherent limitations of batteries, combustion vehicles still be around at least for freight but as hybrids.Yeah brother, that EV infrastructure will take some time, but it could be moving fast in some parts of the world.
There is no doubt the electric car, the ICE car is going close to being obsolete.
The above news is 2 years old. When one of the seven sisters, British Petroleum is building charging stations, we know it is over for the ICE car.
I would also note that it is nearly certain that the US has entered recession territory in real terms as they constantly undercount real inflation with their voodoo magic

For simple idiot proof logic why hybrids are good: if they were bad why do naval forces use them, even for surface ships at times?
Guys. We are witnessing a real time US GDP collapse in front of our eyes.
Open the champagne and lets party
US GDP Q3 growth has fallen to only 0.2% hahaha. Where is Sleepy to enlighten us...
Hybrids are still legal with most ICE car bans, since they're considered sufficiently electric. For example, US restrictions in California still allow plug in hybrids and even pure diesel trucks.That fact is not important when the government essentially will outlaw the ICE car.
America is different from other countries. Everything is predicated on the car.
Other countries probably moving a lot faster to EV and leaving the ICE car behind.
That is one reason why I suspect people bet on Telsa.
America will move very slowly to EV and charging stations. That means someone, such as GM and Ford, must still support the ICE car. However, that means those companies must work on and still invest in something that every knows will be obsolete due to government mandates. Telsa's hands are not tied to legacy systems.
The more R&D, the better the product. Telsa has real advantages in their fight with GM and Ford.
The future of EV, which is the future of the car industry, is basically happening in China. What they test out there and prove to be workable, will probably be copied or exported worldwide. The Europeans are doing work on EV, but they are always expensive. European EV solutions will probably remain in Europe.
I really doubt anyone will take seriously what America does with EV. Everyone has to take Telsa seriously, but their best work with the car and infrastructure may be done in China. That is where the action is.
Your country should develop clean power and hydro-power, for powering all the new EVs. China should be able to help.@Overbom @FairAndUnbiased bro that is a problem living in a third world country 1) we had no choice but to buy an ICE car 2) lack of EV infrastructure 3) maintenance cost 4) gov't regulation. We had at the moment the 2nd highest electric cost in Asia so switching to EV with the standard of living of most middle class are not viable.
