Ford Statement On California EV Insanity (TAC Edit)

SEE ALSO: Toyota (the last best chance to stop the EV fairy-tale) folded like an origami chicken and facilitated the elimination of freedom of choice by agreeing to stop selling real cars in California after 2035. Cluck cluck

But First Snide's Remarks: Please don't attribute this article's headline to Ford as they are going along with the nuts in Sacramento (or Bejing) and must believe capitulation to such a bad idea is a "have to do". How can car company leaders not extrapolate exactly what's happening and tell California Nutty bureaucrats to shove it. If the car makers wait a bit the rational population will rise up and throw the traitors out. Some one has got to lead the manufacturer's resistance to this foolishness, Henry Ford would be rightfully asking where his progeny's bravery went, as Ford now joins the other car maker execs in jumping lemming-like off the cliff. Car execs are killing their companies and stock holder value (except Chinese Car Makers).

On August 25th, the California Air Resources Board is expected to vote on the proposed Advanced Clean Cars II proposal to rapidly scale down light-duty passenger car, truck and SUV emissions starting with the 2026 model year through 2035. Under the new guidelines, by 2035 all new passenger cars, trucks and SUVs sold in California will be zero emissions. Ford’s Chief Sustainability Officer Bob Holycross issued the following statement in response to the proposed regulation:

"At Ford, combatting climate change is a strategic priority, and we’re proud of our partnership with California for stronger vehicle emissions standards, forged during a time when climate action was under attack. We’re committed to building a zero-emissions transportation future that includes everyone, backed by our own investments of more than $50 billion by 2026 in EVs and batteries. The CARB Advanced Clean Cars II rule is a landmark standard that will define clean transportation and set an example for the United States." Bob Holycross, Chief Sustainability Officer at Ford
