I originally published this article almost 3 years ago, but it seems it's essentially as relevant today as it was then. The original title was, "What goes on in the minds of auto execs?" If someone has a better explanation than the thoughts below, chime in down in the comments

All the flowery promises made in the run-up to the vote on the 2017 tax legislation have turned to ashes. Turns out the mega-wealthy got more so? And you? You got the shaft.

For several years now, I've felt both guilt and embarrassment for not driving an EV. I wonder how many other CleanTechnica readers who don't own an EV yet, who own an ICE (internal combustion engine) car, feel similarly

The self-driving vehicle startup Cruise that GM acquired in 2016 was recently valued at $19 billion after another round of investments.
That puts Cruise's valuation at more than half the value of Tesla, and 38% the value of GM as a whole (as of this moment)

I reported recently on the Tesla Model 3 being the #3 best selling car in California in the first quarter of this year (in terms of units sold), and Max Holland showed that it was also the #1 best selling car in California in terms of revenue for that time period.

We're excited around here right now. A couple of years ago, just about the time I signed my Bolt lease, my friends built me a birthday perch for the pond. They told us it would attract geese and entice them to have families here. Last year we labeled the perch, or at least I did, the barge. It was butt ugly sitting on our idyllic pond — think of a machine shipping skid with blue foam board under it in the hope of keeping it afloat

I don't have a ton to write about this, but the visualization below is a must see. Mase Goslin had some free time on his hands, pulled 2012–2019 US EV sales data from InsideEVs, and created the following visualization with the data

GM is planning to introduce a new electric car called the Bolt EUV. Think of it as a Bolt with a longer roof and a larger hatchback. If you expected anything resembling leadership from GM, forget it.

The 21st century is already two decades old. Dude, why do we still not have flying cars? Pragmatic souls might reply that, since the heyday of 1950s science fiction, we’ve come to realize that flying cars aren’t particularly practical or particularly necessary, and that we might do better to solve the problems created by the earthbound variety before creating new frontiers for traffic jams and road rage

Munro & Associates in Auburn Hills, Michigan, is in the business of taking cars apart. The company’s teardown reports reveal the juicy details of every single component — how they work, where they came from, and how much they cost. Automakers pay sizable sums for these reports, in order to figure out what their competitors are up to. Sandy Munro’s 2018 teardown of a Tesla Model 3 delivered some important insights into the California carmaker’s strengths and weaknesses. What about other electric cars
