    Ford in the meantime dropped production of cars for SUV and trucks leaving them (in the US) with fewer regulations on their vehicles and somewhat lower pollution requirements. My guess is if Tesla goes under before 2024, BMW might well decide to reverse that decision.
    Ford dropped its car line because the profits are greater in SUV and trucks. It is concentrating (and betting) heavily on hybrid and electric crossover etc, and hopes to have 42 different models of hybrids and electric vehicles by 2022 or '24 (I forget which).

      They also did it to avoid problems with trying to meet ever stricter emissions and safety requirements on cars

        Solve the battery issue, and then there will be a big move to electrics.
        The Big 3 (though Toyota more than Chrysler-Fiat should be in there) are concentrating heavily on electric and hybrid (the latter the more useful especially in cold environments), and Tesla may be a cheap pick up for some of their engineers, the name, and some of their industrial support divisions. Not saying they will (there is bad blood between Tesla and the Big 3), but generally speaking companies like this are usually bought out by larger companies.

          I'm too old to really care but the electric grid will not handle everyone using an electric car. Basically it's more stupidity from virtue signalling self righteous incompetents. It is the same nonsense as the people who say we can put a man on the moon but we can't solve x insert their favorite socialist dream. Just take a look at how leftist have managed California's highway system they were gifted by a generation that was competent to see how dystopian the dream is. I'm not saying it will never happen but the market is artificial leading to all kinds of distortions, a much different situations than previous changes in transportation.
