Electric vehicles will have to wait. Volkswagen has almost sold out all the cars planned for production this year

The plans of the automotive giants for rapid electrification are clearly poorly aligned with reality, and on many fronts. For example, Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess said that the company has almost sold out all electric vehicles planned for this year in the US and Europe.

Electric vehicles will have to wait.  Volkswagen has almost sold out all the cars planned for production this year

Of course, we are talking about pre-ordered cars. The company has collected a number of orders that are roughly comparable to Volkswagen’s plans for the production of electric vehicles in 2022. By the way, this applies to cars of the entire concern, that is, at the same time, Audi, Skoda and others.

Thus, most of those who want to order such an electric car later this year will have to wait until 2023.

The problem is not only in a fairly high demand, but also in the continuing shortage of components and chips, to which was added the shutdown of factories in China due to another outbreak of COVID-19.

Volkswagen expects backlogs to continue to rise. Currently, there are already many people in line waiting to receive an electric car, and there will be more during the year.

According to the source, in the first quarter of this year, the German auto giant sold just under 100,000 electric vehicles. For comparison, Tesla sold about 310,000 cars during the same period.

Honda showed its first electric crossover Prologue But it will

Honda, like many other Japanese brands, is far behind its European competitors when it comes to electrifying their cars. The company already has a Honda e, and now the manufacturer has unveiled its first electric crossover, the Prologue. True, the car will enter the market only in 2024.

Honda showed its first electric crossover Prologue.  But it will only be released in 2024.

Whatever it was, so far we have only one official image. The crossover on it is not very similar to the current Honda models. The source says that Prologue is a joint development of the Japanese giant and GM, but no details yet. It is likely that the Prologue and some General Motors electric cars will have a common platform.

Honda plans to introduce 30 new electric vehicle models by 2030 and expects sales of 2 million units. After launching the Prologue in 2024, Honda plans to begin production of new electric vehicles based on its e:Architecture architecture in 2026, and in 2027 it will have affordable electric vehicles also co-developed with GM.

“I will vote Republican.” Musk lashes out at Democrats over Tesla’s exclusion from S&P 500 ESG index

I will vote Republican Musk lashes out at Democrats over

Tesla was excluded from the S&P 500 ESG at the beginning of the month, but most people only knew about it now that Elon Musk decided to speak out about it.

ExxonMobil ranks in the top 10 in the world in the S&P 500 ESG Index, while Tesla didn’t make it! ESG is a scam. It was used as a weapon by fake social justice fighters.

I will vote Republican Musk lashes out at Democrats over

The fact is that the S&P 500 ESG is an index that takes into account the environmental and social performance of companies. And Musk was obviously hurt that the huge oil company ExxonMobil was on the list, and Tesla was decided to be excluded. And there are even official reasons for the exclusion: Tesla has no strategy to reduce carbon emissions, no code of business conduct, and the company has also been accused of racism and poor working conditions.

But Musk did not stop at one statement.

I’ve voted Democrats in the past because they were (mostly) the goodness party. But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now watch their dirty campaign against me unfold

This is a much more serious statement, since many of Musk’s supporters are his supporters precisely because of his political views. Immediately, Musk made it clear that he changed them. This has already cost Tesla about $40 billion in capitalization, as the company’s shares fell immediately after the publication of its head.
