This is the MBA case when excuses are coming, but it is too little and too late. Volkswagen sales are dropping like a stone and DOJ in U.S. is finally pushing with lawsuits with dozens of billions in charges. Volkswagen is reinventing the wheel and so excited about the "flat lithium battery" now. Are these people even living on the same planet? Have they ever seen Tesla Model S? I mean of-cause not the brilliant German engineers, but the Boardroom Cheaters. It is the step in the right direction and Volkswagen must be punished by making only electric cars now! Only than they, maybe, can survive as a brand.
What can I say here? This concept of BMW i8 Spider is just beautiful, but what can bring it to life fast? When BMW and other Big German Autos will have strength to endorse Electric Cars for real? The wasted billions on Hydrogen and "Clean Diesel" are not helping management to embrace the change, but maybe shareholders can demand it? You cannot just build your business plan on corrupted politicians preventing us all from progress and clean air to breath as a result.
Reality is that any level of any pollutions being it Diesel or Petrol are harmful for our health. We have Lithium Technology to address it. If Tesla can make it from scratch with Elon Musk, why Great German Autos cannot do it? Just go and make a strategic alliance with Tesla, get the full electric powertrain matching your 21st century design, build next Lithium Batteries Gigafactory in Europe and more Tesla Supercharges and bring us mass market for electric cars moving down the models and pricing range. In my ver personal opinion for BMW just to stay relevant in the next 25 years, it should not be just a wish from any "Green" BMW shareholders, but must be government backed plan to save German Auto Industry. Just hiding the facts about cancer hazard toxic emissions is not working any more. Volkswagen will never get over it, BMW still has a chance. The worst for all of us outcome will be in case of German government saving German Autos by killing German kids with deadly pollution and all those auto jobs just going back to China again.
"The pain is coming, you can't stop it. Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) will be dying with Fossil Fuels. It is just the law of nature. Electric Cars are better and they will become cheaper as well very soon. We can make it as a pain of growth, but who will make it? All these jobs for The Next Industrial rEVolution could be here, not just going again to China. Germany with its brilliant engineers can produce lithium batteries and electric cars and it can happen in every country. It is all here, with all numbers on the links below. Just spread the word.

"I do hope that you have recharged your batteries and even managed to start detoxing after the festivities. 2016 is knocking impatiently on the door with the global sell-off in the markets: China has the worse ever duties trading start with circuit breakers applied today and Saudi Arabia is ready to blow out in the developing crisis of epic proportions.
Time is to remind ourselves that all "Democracy Wars" are based on our dependence on Oil and now we have the Solution: Lithium Technology is here and Electric Cars are already better than the one-hundred-years-old ICE cancer hazard polluting rubbish. We just need to make them cheaper and better. While we are working on it, please, find links below for your own research. Saudi Arabia, Russia, Ukraine, China can be perceived as something quite afar and not an immediate danger, more information on how your own car is slowly killing your own kids, maybe, can do the trick. New York Times article will put you research into the right direction today. All the links are still there, as, very unfortunately, all "Clean Diesel" cars on our streets and "Not-So-Dirty Petrol" ones. Read more."
DieselGate Volkswagen Fallout: Car Pollution Scandal - EU Parliament To Set Up Enquiry On Green Initiative.
"There is some faith left in the humanity after all. People are smart and the best of us can even sustain intensive GMO and Reality TV brain damaging attacks. The best are moving forward very fast now into the future into the post carbon economy. You are all invited to join. Lithium Technology is here to make it all happen. No fighting or even confrontation is required, just vote with your wallet and credit cards: stop buying 100 years old ICE Diesel and Petrol powered technology which is literally poisoning to death with cancer hazard emissions your very own children. Please, spread the world and links below are for your own research. Read more."
"BBC has produced the great documentary presenting very graphically the depth of deception by auto-makers. Volkswagen DieselGate fallout has very far reaching complications: it is not only NOx, but CO2 as well; and it is not only Volkswagen. And do you know that EU has just doubled the limits for cancer hazard diesel emissions and has postponed their implementation? They do not like you to know it, so you can find everything on the links below to make you own judgement. Sales of Electric Cars has sky rocketed in Germany in October. It is quite stupid in the end to pay yourself to poison your kids with cancer hazard pollution every day. All we have to do is just stop paying for all those lies and stop buying all that rubbish. Now we have the solution - Lithium Technology is already here. Read more."
