It's all good... it's hard to get context and emotion on a forum. I certainly wasn't offended or anything but I appreciate the gesture. :tup:: Apologies if I did that to you.I have to agree, that is an impressive accomplishment, one that gives me hope of change.
Also, an olive branch to you,
I hope and pray that you are right, I just think we're gonna have to crack the whip with politicians
to get change happening quicker. 50% of our power from renewables is the minimum we should
be achieving consistently, I know we touch that now but they need to do more.
We need to create an environment where EVs are embraced, not punished by premiums and taxes.
And if Holden ever decided to reinvent themselves as a BEV company, then why not support them
with government incentives and rebates to customers buying them.
To be honest with you I think the reality is we will have little choice in the matter anyway. Europe will drive this change - our market is so small it's insignificant. Whether customer demand is there or not or the infrastructure is there or not, and whether we have politicians who agree or not will largely be irrelevant. We will get dragged to a position of acceptance because it will happen regardless of whether we agree or are ready.
That's really the crux of my argument. It's coming. There's no point resisting. Maybe not tomorrow or next week... but it's coming.
And if it presents itself as an opportunity for Holden to shed it's baggage and re-invent itself, even if it does cause short term pain, I just cannot see a single reason for them not to.
