Electric rEVolution: German Push To Ban Combustion-Engine Cars By 2030 Wins Support After DieselGate.

  Now we can put the electric cars party taking over at  Paris Motor Show in the perspective. Germany would like to join Netherland and Norway banning sales of ICE cars from 2030. It means that now they will have to make electric cars and all that news about dozens electric cars coming in the next 10 years are getting more credibility. Lithium Battery makers are already moving into Europe: Mercedes, LG Chem, A123, BMZ and Volkswagen have all announced Lithium Megafactories in the making and security of lithium supply will be coming on the European investors' radar screens very soon.

Tipping Point For rEVolution: Range Is All The Rage In Paris, As Electric Cars Steal The Show After DieselGate.

  
The New York Times.


  "The New York Times reports about the tectonic shift after DieselGate in Europe and Paris Motor Show being overtaken by the flood of promises about electric cars.  The ugly truth is that ALL DIEsel cars are emitting cancer hazard pollution and majority of them many times over the limits. People will just stop buying them. Now we have some brave prototypes and even real electric cars as well. Tesla Model S is outselling Mercedes S-Class, BMW7 and Audi 8. Automakers are getting the message finally: Tesla Model 3 will put then out of business and they are praying that Apple will continue just talking to every single automaker while making iPhones N+1 instead of millions electric iCars on Tesla Model 3 powertrain.
  Even GrandPa from Daimler has dressed down to the jeans electric uniform posing next to All-Electric EQ Mercedes promising to beat Tesla in ten years.  They are all welcome to try - we need millions of electric cars and it looks like we can be driving a lot of them made in China much sooner than "they will beat Tesla".  
  By the way, Europe is already selling more electric cars than the US this year.This tide is coming and this year we can celebrate 1,000,000 electric cars being sold in 2016 - it will get attention. But the most important is that the real electric cars are coming priced below $40k with the range over 200 miles: GM Bolt, Opel Ampera-e, Renault Zoe and Tesla Model 3.  China is the wild card still below the radar screens: New Energy Plan with military style attention to the detail and execution is taking over lithium supply chain. Megafactories for batteries are rising and the best lithium technology is being tested by Formula E. Everything is ready for The Switch with record Solar and Wind installations, Energy Storage  being rolled out and electric cars going into mass production.  Read more."


Lithium Race: Daimler To Make More Than 10 Electric Cars By 2025.

  


  "Finally, great Germans are talking about electric cars seriously. Daimler is going to leave DieselGate behind in the dust and produce 10 electric cars by 2025 reaching the goal of 15-25 percent of sales overall.  I do hope that they are seriously serious this time - I have seen all those beautiful prototypes in 2009 already.  Instead, after spending billions of dollars on hydrogen they all have chosen "Clean Diesel. " We are all trying to clean that mess now from our streets.
  Volkswagen can lead by example now: if the company can survive all billions of dollars claimed in hundreds of lawsuits - "they are going to make millions of electric cars as well." I do really hope that they can all change - so far Elon Musk was taking on all those monsters of cancer hazard diesel pollution in the West in a very small team with Nissan-Renault and GM. China has managed to build EV industry from scratch and is now the leading electric cars manufacturing nation with sales approaching 500,000 this year.  Hopefully, we will be celebrating 1,000,000 EVs sold worldwide during 2016 in December.  Daimler is better to hurry before they will become totally irrelevant. Tesla Model S has already outsold Mercedes Class S last year!

German Push To Ban Combustion-Engine Cars By 2030 Wins Support


"A proposal to stop sales of new combustion-engine cars by 2030 has gained cross-party support in Germany's Bundesrat, the country's upper house of parliament, Der Spiegel reported.
German lawmakers should urge their counterparts in Brussels to push incentives for only zero-emission vehicles to be registered by 2030, the weekly news magazine said, citing a decision taken in a Bundesrat meeting.
"If the Paris agreement to curb climate-warming emissions is to be taken seriously, no new combustion engine cars should be allowed on roads after 2030," it quoted Greens party lawmaker Oliver Krischer as saying.
A switch to sales of only zero-emission cars puts thousands of German auto industry jobs at risk since the powertrain of an electric car requires only a tenth of the staff to be assembled when compared with a combustion-engined equivalent, which needs more workers to assemble cylinders, spark plugs, and gearboxes.
