    The market is speaking--it's just that your yap has already been accounted for. Yep, certain markets demand ICE-based vehicles. You want one, go buy one--with higher prices relative to their costs. V8, rear wheel drive, solid rear axle (OK, soon to be not solid, but, finally in 2020), frame-based chassis.

    At the other end of the spectrum people want to drive their vehicle and not have to drive to a gas station. Even more, younger people don't even want to deal with buying a car, maintaining it--it essentially a wallet sink the likes of which an objective mind would cringe at the thought of it. Companies need to figure out how to sell to these people--these may not be YOUR people, but, they're people none-the-less. So, the hefty profits being made by supposedly YOUR purchases are used as investment to figure out the future generations--'cause GM wants to live way beyond our life spans.

    So, continue to watch cable news and watch through their own eyes what the world is like...or...turn the darn TV off and create a mind for yourself. You'd be amazed to see that it's not like what FOX tells yah...
    Other than knowing nothing about me or my thought process and information sources, and talking utter and complete nonsense 100% of the time, you make perfect sense.

    BTW FWIW, it's LO AND BEHOLD. Just a little help for the low-information voters out there.

    If he knows what to do. Not sure his grasp on THAT is firm. Therefore there is "significant sway in the structure" at GM.

    Thanks dannyg! Extending the time period to the first eleven months of 2019, Toyota Motor Sales USA (TMNA) hybrid vehicle sales are up 26.6% YTD, compared to a decline of 1.7% for all Toyota & Lexus vehicles overall in the U.S. in the same period.

    A similar market dynamic is playing out at American Honda: sales of Honda's electrified vehicles* are up 25.2% YTD, compared with an increase of only 1.5% for all Honda & Acura vehicles overall.

    *includes hybrids (including PHEV), FCEV, and BEV. The Clarity BEV and FCEV models, which are only available in California and Oregon, comprised less than 2% of American Honda's electrified vehicle sales YTD. Hybrids were over 98%.

    And over at Hyundai Motor America, last month represented the best month ever for Ioniq sales, up 33.4% YTD. Approximately 98% of Ioniqs sold in the U.S. market are the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions.
