BMW CEO Oliver Zipse says going all-in on EVs will lead companies to dependence on a few countries. ICE vehicles still have a market, Zipse noted, and if one company will not sell a customer the engine they want, another will.
Improvement over replacement. Current EV prices and gaps in charging infrastructure place EVs out of reach for some consumers. Zipse advocates against all-out ICE bans and insists companies improving fuel efficiency is more critical now for the consumer and the environment than shifting totally to EVs.
