AUTO CENTRAL - June 27, 2019: A recent report from Automotive News quotes BMW Group board member for development, Klaus Frohlich declaring that the diesel engine still has at least 20 more years, and the gasoline engine at least 30 years.
During this interview Frohlich also toned down the general rhetoric surrounding electric cars and their impending takeover; "so even though BMW continues to actively develop and pursue all-electric models, doubt remains. That is clear across the industry, as everyone who produces electric cars struggles to make a profit selling those vehicles."
TACH Asks: For the next 50-plus years, 80% of new cars sold will (along with the 300 million ICE powered autos on American roads) continue to use poison and geopolitically harmful gasoline, unless the people and politicians wake up and ease the way for Clean, Green, Renewable and Domestic Ethanol to replace the 100 year old ubiquitous poison.
