I have no interest. Do you own one? I think of all the individuals who post here, only Rumble and Steve G own some sort of non ICE vehicle.

GM can "pledge" (aka posture) all they want. They don't want to be on the wrong side of the twitter mob. No one does.
The big car companies are essentially betting the farm on EVs.
Therefore, it will happen. As they move to electric, the car companies will be very receptive to stronger environmental standards on vehicles.

Jeff, I can bet the farm on Pet Rocks making a return. If consumers aren't going to buy them, it doesn't matter.

What I am saying with all the money the car companies are investing in EVs, big auto will not oppose and perhaps even welcome stricter environmental laws that would essentially mandate people purchase them.
They will be like how catalytic converters are today.
