Daimler (Mercedes Benz) orders 20 billion dollars in EV battery assemblies!

For a lot of automobile power and engine enthusiasts this is sort of a telling piece of information about how much faster the EV's will enter the automobile market place. Daimler said they are ramping up EV offerings and production and that will change and increase their % of EV vehicles to as much as over 10% of their total vehicle production in 2020-2022.

Looks like EV vehicles are here to stay in a big way and pretty much all the major automotive manufacturers are committed to the future of EV.

I think this is one of the most incredible acceptance and influx of a radically new auto propulsion system in such a short time frame.

Its 20B Euros BTW - that's 23B USD. Plus another 10B Euro invested in developing 130 electric models.

Europe is moving very aggressively on emissions and electric are a big part of the plan.

You bet! VW just announced a 48 Billion (Euro?) to invest in new battery development and production as well as EV vehicle development.

The Electric Vehicle wave is about to break over the globe! :lol:

And how will they all be recharged? Maybe some nice clean fukushima type gen plants, or coal? In areas of dark cold winters you won't be charging your car with solar. Then I'd like to hear about all the water that is polluted while manufacturing those batterys. If they spent all those $ on straight magnetic power they might have something.

So just WHO is bank-rolling this little purchase?

I want to know WHO is behind the AGENDA to kill the ICE???

Time to start hoarding a couple of old '60's and '70's beaters.

Oh, and btw, I have an electric pedal assist bike that I ride around town.....

A LEED electric front hub kit with a range of like 20 miles or so...

It's a little pricy, but it sure helps my go up the hills here..

There's a free market out there. :lol: :lol:
The big auto makers are in a race. They spend a lot of money on crystal balls and the crystal balls are saying the auto makers that are slow to develop EV's will go broke.
