Gas-Guzzlers And Diesels: Nowhere To Go But Down

“Since the three largest auto markets are already seeing falling combustion vehicle sales, is there any hope left for the internal combustion engine?
 
No. It’s firmly headed for the dustbin of history, and it is going to happen quickly. Most serious auto analysts (see here, and here, and here) think that 2018 may well have been the peak sales year for combustion vehicle sales globally, and the figures we’ve discussed above certainly support the idea.”

It’s what I believed would happen years ago, burning stuff to get from A to B is obsolete. It’s not right. It’s not efficient. It’s dirty. It’s expensive. EVs are the way to go. They are efficient, clean and inexpensive. Even the herd buying pickup trucks can’t roll back the tide and neither can the automakers who’s infrastructure has been built on burning stuff.
