The car makers now face $1 billion in fines, except for Daimler, which reported the cartel to the European Commission.

"This this issue. Oh oh maybe it's destroying business supplied. You can if you do it right. You can create jobs. We will have one thousand five hundred one six hundred employees in in the new business. What we're doing here. that's not the end. Because this is only the first portion of the poorest part of help lint william the skills you need to make a battery are very different from working on an assembly line. What could these changes mean for. Vw's workforce so what we're seeing in the automotive industry right now is a shift in skills in competencies away from mechanical engineering and assembly. Line work to a much more specialized kind of electrical engineer software programmer software designer. Phd chemists People who are experts in material sciences in order to buy the raw material said the batteries need in order to develop those materials to perfect the batteries the battery chemistry and some of those new skills. Some of those new areas they obviously have to hire people. The question at the end of the day is will the auto industry in the future employ just as many people as it does today or will there be fewer jobs. I think it's important to understand. The context within which vw is making this change. The emission scandal saw the company cheating. Us emissions regulations and it was. It was a low point for them. Does that episode still way on the company in terms of how its approaching the broader industry. Shift to go greener. I think it's important to put the diesel scandal into context of sort of the broader economic and regulatory changes that are taking place world wide. Because you know. Gm just announced this week that they're going to spend thirty five billion dollars to over the next few years to build electric vehicles and they didn't have a diesel scandal. So there's obviously something else happening here as well but for vw. The diesel scandal was definitely a low point in its international reputation. It costs the company a lot of money and it also became a catalyst inside the company. A whole new layer of of a management was brought in new people with new ideas committed to making the changes necessary to basically make vw the leading electric vehicle maker in the world. And that is there. That is their goal. What they want to do is make the people's electric car. The wsj's william boston. Joining us from berlin william. Thank you for being here.

The release said volkswagen of america would remain an operating unit of volkswagen group of america and a subsidiary of volkswagen g with headquarters in herndon virginia. And so thankfully. I don't think this means they're actually changing the brand or how they would refer to the brand in america on branding. Cnbc just says that they would have a lighter coloured vw logo for electric vehicles versus darker colored vw logo for gas powered vehicles. Hopefully vw is just having fun with their company name as an entity. Which at the end of the day would be inconsequential. The case i'm fine with it go had vw. Get your attention.

Three and model anna. Vw id full stop to both will. Halt both had gone down to between six percent. And it still clear that tesla is. This was a two year old model. Three yeah it was pretty heat pump. still be efficiency kings and maybe not the charge speed kings. Get tesla fan boys on my twitter. Go out of our calls charge. Two hundred and fifty kilowatts. They don't exceptional. Circumstances need to apply for that and even when they hit a ramp down so quickly but testimony. Why still the efficiency king. I stand by that but check out his video. I'll link in the show notes if you wanna watch what we were talking about. Only yesterday next talking. Volkswagen for the first ones have been delivered in germany. I thought that'd be there already with its home market. I've just presumed it was weeks ago. They got it but no the first customers in germany got the has two days ago on friday. The id four vehicles handed over simultaneously in the delivery centers of dresden and host bug a. thousands of other customers to follow. Now they're gonna like about one hundred and fifty k this year about one hundred and fifty thousand ninety four's will be made This she let's globally and It just the start for that having now driven it and spent some time in. I'm just convinced it's a really solid package for those people who want a slightly bigger option. Don't want one of the south korean. 'cause and i think vw of might very solid car. There's nitpicky things like Wasn't keen on the brown on the seats. Or whatever but actually fundamentally pretty good. And i'm surprised at how the first edition which i drove yesterday. How many bits. It's actually missing so went away. And how to look at the first max spec which we can't buy here but there's a lot more stuff than came with the first edition so i would. Actually i would white on the. Id four and go if we can get in the uk. we get. I max go. i think he's that. All i pro- i'd go that because there was lots more stuff in slightly bigger wheels more electric's on the say. The led matrix headlights. All and a ton of other stuff is like. Oh well that's the spec you walden anyway if you're buying a ninety four first edition. Hope you're enjoying it. I really really like it for the dealerships as well. They are doing some europe-wide training in germany alone ten-thousandth dealership employees just in germany. Taking power in the training learning about the id full. But also related areas of electro mo. -bility jeep is partnering with ah to create the jeep four by a charging network. Terrible nine stylized on papers four x e but even so by they're installing jeep branded charges. They trail heads and this allows us to take full advantage of buying electric well electrified. They say jeep. Suv the four by a ice saying that Charging stations will open in moab utah rubicon trial as well Big phony three of the most iconic offer destinations and jeep brand icons that putting charges not clear to me whether these charges are available for everyone to use or whether it's just going to be somehow locked to jape i'm not sure look into it. Jeep brand at least. It's three charges. But it's a good start next of completed that two millionth battery swap. It was on the twenty fourth of march china's neo completed two million battery swaps and it was just slightly less than ten months ago. That done half a million neo. Power swab stations have powered three hundred ninety. Six million kilometers of driving says green congress. The most frequent power swap user has done six hundred and fifty four battery swaps in total. The most traveled power. Swab user has visited sixty seven stations nation wide and as an integral part of nieto's battery as a service offering in other words. You don in the battery. You end the rest of the car but not the battery. The dimensions always the same in all that qasr and so as battery technology improves you can swap out. You'll eighty kilowatt hour. And putting one hundred and ten kilowatt hour battery. Pack old swappable and upgradable batteries neo site serves as a time efficient solution for users who are in high density areas. He can't get to a charger. We want do it quickly. It makes sense which we haven't challenging at home or they con- charge that if they do live in those very dense urban areas and also allowing you to upgrade battery and enjoy that progressive battery technology knowing that the battery pack going in your car has been checked and is fully charged probably slow charged as well back base and so the deg is going to be. But it's not your batteries. Hey cares about the degradation. But even so make sense in many ways i've got no use for battery swapping by the way wouldn't fit into my life in any way. What so ever so fortunate that we moved and we've got a driveway now. But i can see how battery swapping useful. Hey question of the week time right now with email ability norway dot com what incentive would make the most difference to you by ebay had a big incentive change here in the uk. Recently it got reduced from three grand two and a half grand off the cob also. The threshold was down to anything under thirty five thousand pounds which cuts out a load of cars and it got me thinking. I'm going to ask you what incentives make the biggest difference to you. Buy an av now to me. It's less about the money off the purchase price but that is important is important for me. It's more about usability so the incentives running ev. Things like if i could get free parking in use of bus and taxi lines a priority in certain places using every day over the the years i own levy as more potent to me than the actual purchase price but saying that of course purchase price is still incredibly important. So for me. It's about perks. But what is it for you. Incentives make the most difference to you buying an ebay. I'd love tonight especially as there's more and more congestion zones going in big cities around the world a big perk for me. It's about dr. Anyway in av and not have to pay ten or fifteen pounds maybe driving through road tolls for free all of those things matter a lot to me but slim yours. Email address is hello at avenues.

It could be a people carrier. Could be like a mini alvie. And it's interesting. The the is not going to be a global vehicle so it'll be different in in different markets and property quite expensive as well because small. I mean let's face it all eve as a little too expensive at the moment. But i think there's going to be a premium for this car. The looks amazing. The interest in it is already off the charts.

"Sticking up and free floating in terms of the screen. It was okay. It was a little high for my liking. It was too high. Forty t for me to use Kinda comfortably i. I'm used to screen spending a little bit further down but that would take some getting used to but had the two screens so has the screen behind the steering wheel. Which is the driver info. Had everything on that you need to know the spit nice and big speed. Because i did find myself going over thirty accidentally in the in the speed limit sections and then having to off because it's easy to go fast in a navy so that was nice. That and then the gear selector is attached to the screen on the right. And if you've seen the bmw. I three guests like to this. I would say is heavily inspired by that you turn it once for dr once again or click it further for be mode which should be stronger region and then and then often away and then you put it back towards us. Do neutral number of us region. Let me talk about that. Not super powerful. I like really strong region. And i like modulating my right foot. My wife doesn't again. that's very subjective. Thing people in the vehicle. It'll tell you You know with all suddenly you must have this. You must have that strong region blah blah blah blah blah but equally doing seventy on the motorway. And you let off you want a cruise. You want to freewheel. Because then a lot of region is not the most efficient way to get your destination like a really strong region and then just driving with one pedal but it was not strong enough personally for me but it was easy to drive so i just go in and drive. I guess is my first conclusion. Which i'll come back to the end of the podcast. I just got in and drove. So richard left in the car and so once the keys in the car. It's all there's no button on the vw. Id four so there's no. There is an on off button hidden if you want to turn the car on enough but there isn't get in the car you put it into drive and you put away which is the way. It should be an old levi's because you shouldn't have an on off button. It really need it again. At the end of the drive. I go in. I got to the end of the drive. I stopped i pushed the handbrake button which is kind of on the end of the shift and just left and i walked away in the cartoons itself off so my driving impression of is you could get into this from a combustion car and just drive and i think that's the key with the vw. Id full because they'll be people coming from guam's from gulfs from other vw's that finance is coming to an end. The lease is up right. Where do i go. What do i drive next and auditing anybody if they're gonna spend around forty thousand pounds. This car costs now. a should be thinking about combustion. 'cause it doesn't make any sense. A tool to be getting into. The world of diesels. Particular fills is exhausted. Replacements catalytic converters all of that nonsense because this car does every absolutely everything. I think really really well again not gonna win. The draft drag strip won't win the top speed ones. But a did absolutely everything. I could possibly want to really really well now. Didn't have a chance to play with the app. Or have a really good rummage through the car. I did not running on twenty inch wheels. Which is the first ide- spec. The twenty inch. Wheels looked good. Didn't have a chance to play with any of the driver assistant stuff. I did notice on my short drive. That pulled me back into the center of the road. So that must have been turned. I was drifting a bit to the right sent me. I was like oh okay. Didn't know it was very subtle and gentle and worked really really well like i said the screen was was good. It was bright there. I think they could capacitive or capacitive buttons. The run along the bottom of it the same ones that the steering wheel. Now if you've driven a recent vw. Like latest gulf. The steering wheel is just a brilliant piece of design. It's got clicky buttons. It's the evolution of everything that they've learned about usability. It just works the vw. Four doesn't have those house a shiny surface where the buttons are and there are some ridges so you can kind of feel your way but i know that when i'm driving cars that have clicky buttons on the steering wheel own more buttons. I didn't take my eyes off the road. If i'm so setting cruise control over reducing the know cruise control speed temporarily or you know whatever follow distance. I can do that just by touch. Signed goes for turning things up at like up and down volume wise. I can just do it in what there's nothing wrong with the knob and you know an an a physical button sometimes. Even take your eyes off the road for safe. This had some buttons on the whale. The i think they've got right yet. Because it gives you a little bit of feedback when you push it but a lot of swiping if you want to change the volume you can swipe up and down with your finger and the same goes for the heating but really just give me a volume knob because that isn't broken like that piece of design in the world is in broken. It's like light switches. I see a lot of interpretations now. Small lights and smart light switches. And or but you know what you go into a room a light switch it just works. It's a piece of design that doesn't need to be fixed. There's nothing wrong with it. I don't think i could get on with the steering wheel without a bit. I'd need a test a test for the weekend and have apply. Because i didn't like it but they apart from that i did pop in ecoed. I did papa income foot mode. They are some. There's a mode button on the big screen. That's one of those not soft touch buttons. You i mean. And i couldn't feel any difference so i'd like to tell you. Oh yes echo was very strong region and comfort dull. The accelerator in sport was really reactive. I was on roads that were thirty. Forty and sixty miles an hour. I couldn't really tell a big difference like maybe that's why i'm not reviewing house for a living the whole time. The cough l. very much responsive too. I wanted it to do.

At least 15 killed in collision between semitruck and SUV

"From Southern California, and you knew it The second you heard it. The numbers almost seemed absurd. But there were 25 people in an SUV. That collided with a semi truck. 13 people died Now when I first heard that I thought there had to have been like human smuggling going on with it. With the semi truck had to be. How do you I don't even know how you would get 25 people into an SUV designed to seat seven or eight adults. But they did it and it didn't work out because the person driving it Didn't drive very well. They apparently ran through a stop sign and boom. Got hit by a truck. Their fault completely. But those 25 people piled into that SUV had just snuck across the border through hold. In the fence there. Biden administration will probably now start mailing South and Central America directions to that hole. They surely won't plug it. This is the problem. You sit there 25 people in an SUV. What in the hell is going on? San Jose Mercury News has the story. I really thought like when I heard that 13 people had died in a car accident of in California. I thought did it Snow in California. Was there ice in California? How the hell did 25 13 people die and what happened. It was all in one car. So then SUV packed with people pulled out in front of a semi truck towing two trailers in a rural California county near the Mexican border on Tuesday. Morning, leaving at least a dozen dead and others hospitalized, officials said. So not only did 13 people die We, the United States taxpayer get the pleasure of picking up the medical bills for the people who did not die. Able, of course, be greeted by the Biden administration. With open arms and wallets, Our wallets being opened their arms being open. And concern and promises and compassion And don't worries you will not be deported. That'll be the thing. You watch these people who survive this, the people who risked their lives by stupidly piling into an SUV. Like it was a VW beetle. Back in the 19 fifties or a phone booth or something. They will be welcomed to the United States. They've been through enough. Don't you think that would be it? They risked their own lives. That's their own stupidity.

It's part of a goal to introduce twenty as bhai twenty. Twenty-five says chris bruce well less attack those in order than the eighty four. Gt ex that will have a more potent powertrain than the id for capable of doing nor to sixty two. That's not one hundred k's in six seconds however this will come with a low range than the standard models. Two hundred and fifty miles. Of course it will be the bigger battery in the performance model and so that bigger battery is seventy seven usable eighty-two kilowatt hours gross. That's the one coming in the like skoda. That sista to the id full rarely and so it will def performance. It'll be the bigger battery. Big is heavy but also able to deliver more punch and more power and small ranch. Obviously so we'll wait to see the stats. The debut will be in the spring. They say so. That could be march. April may i guess depending on how much of a stickler you off the official definitions a spring summit ultimate excetera. This goes on sale in europe by the end of the year. The availability of the full. Gts a still a mystery in the us. Maybe maybe not but the id full will be sold in the us. What was described as the first global v from vw.

As well here in europe you have a snow and ice at sometimes the i no use for an all wheel drive car and people say to me l. But you know you because that way you've got more performance and yet when you're at cruising speed it can decouple one of the motors and that front wheel drive over real wheel drives more efficient. Even then i don't need maximum performance a drive drive a lot slower than they used to have. Frankly and also don't need. I don't need the extra expense and white of all wheel drive kavas so many people do towing is well of course the. It four can tow.

Som Volkswagen has been working on its tesla killer since late twenty fifteen but this is not an electric car. It has the underlying chassis or platform the building block for fifty different models of electric car that VW promises to mate by twenty twenty five. Tim Bradshaw discusses the German car companies plan to dominate the electric vehicle market with patriot in the game. Country. Tell us how much volume is investing in electric car developments, and what form as this investment taken. So far. Going to bed that over the next five years alone. It will spend forty four billion euros a roughly fifty billion US dollars on future technologies. And then the vast bulk of that thirty billion euros is devoted exclusively to electric cars. And where is it right now? What's the sort of scale of VW's electric business at the moment? And how's that compared to tesla electric plein air for pests with far far away? I mean, Volkswagen only sold forty thousand pure electric cars and sixty thousand hybrid cars last year, which may be too small a number, but it's a fraction of the ten point. Eight million cars that base old globally there. The world's biggest carmaker, but they're nowhere near the world's biggest carmaker when it comes to electric cars. Maybe it's worth knowing Volkswagen is the Volkswagen group. Right. Spread over twelve brands and the most profitably Audi maybe the sexiest being Porsche. But this also includes Bentley spaghetti see us, go to Lambert Jeanie, and this is a massive company and since the Volkswagen scandal in two thousand fifteen they're under new leadership, and they've just shifted direction drastically in the direction of electric vehicles. But they're doing it in the. Dramatic slow and steady ways that we're only seeing the first electric cars built on this new bespoke electric platform later this year, and it's slow and steady the ROY approach for the electric car market at the moment. How quickly is it growing role? And is it growing on pace or is it like nine so everyone says the German carmakers are late to electric car party. And I've been saying for years that they're late. But this is a pretty exclusive party, right? Even in China where electric cars are most popular at least among the big markets, including places like Norway. You know? It's only two point four percent of car sold in China last year where electric so you know, if you consider that your major carmaker selling millions of vehicles, this is non exactly a market that you're actually really missing out on in terms of volume. So they've been doing the slow and steady approach to figure out what their strategy should be. But once it begins to be implemented and twenty twenty more than twenty nineteen is really the year that they'll begin releasing these on mass once it begins to be implemented. Then I think they're actually going to do this really fast. And there's gonna be a wave of. Electric car models coming out in the first five years of next decade. So it just seems slow, but it seems slow because they're being methodical. I mean, if they sort of rushed out with a bunch of electric cars, they probably would have all sorts of mistakes. And in fact, this is criticism that you hear among the German carmakers towards tesla that this is incredibly innovative company, and there's really no CEO's that I speak to that would deny that. But everyone knows there's also lots of production problems and even differences between different cars of the same. All right, so model threes introduced a year and a half ago are actually different in many respects than ones coming out right now, which to a German production mindset is sort of blasphemous and the certain way. Savita lead the skateboard platform that they're coming out with is crucial to that expansion in the electric call market in the coming years. Just explain a little bit about how that works and how does that difference away? 'cause a traditionally built Shafie is called M E B, and it really is critical. Because of course, folks, I can already sell electric cars. The problem is they don't have the same range as tesla cars, and the reason is pretty simple, and it's that to build electric cars today and most incumbent carmakers this is what they do. They have a platform sort of car architecture that built for the journal combustion engine. So when they're building electric cars, they centrally just don't put in the power train. And then they try to stuff batteries and electric motor wherever will fit the result is just compromise. So the way tesla is superior in one respect, I think very central respect is that they started with a total clean sheet. So they built an electric car from the ground up when they built the model S in two thousand twelve and so as a result, just everything they. Did was built for an electric car. So they have this huge battery, you know, weighing six hundred kilograms it sits beneath your feet, and it just opens up all sorts of possibilities for the design, and you know, Tesla's famously has what's called a front of front facing trunk basically because there's no combustion engine sitting there so opens up new possibilities because the electric car market is so small incumbent carmakers just haven't had the resources or vision to really follow in those footsteps, but Volkswagen is now convinced and for regulatory purposes, they sort of have to be convinced that electric cars really are the future, and they just have the capacity to build up an EMMY be electric skateboard chassis, and they're gonna have it up and running in eastern Germany later this year, and then by two thousand twenty two actually have eight different factories churning out the vehicles, and so the idea is that you can create lots of different designs on top of the same platform is that right? And is that how that was interesting 'cause yeah, not to get too key here. But there's something that looks like an introduced called modular. Suction is sounds wonky. But it's really really important. So if you sort of go back in the history of automotive what you find is that there's always been efforts to use the same parts in variety of different cars. There's this famous magazine cover of the nineteen eighties. Where GM executive is sitting in front of four cars that are are sensibly different. And they're all based on very similar parts. And it's more infamous than famous because the four cars, basically, all look the same that wasn't sort of GM's intention. And that's always been the problem that if you use the same parts you end up with cookie cutter monotony and would Volkswagen pioneered about a decade ago with combustion engine cars something called modular production. And what that meant was that instead of sharing tangible parts and components they began to share abstract things, so fixed dimensions. And what that meant was that you could sort of plug and play where something went, and you could differentiate the quality somehow. So if you have maybe like one hundred different engines, and they can all fit in the same way. But then you can sort of have a spectrum of engines that are ranging from cheap ones that are used in to the expensive ones that are. Using outy, but you can plug and play in a variety of ways. And so you're sort of achieving cost savings as well as Riecke it's sort of the holy grail. These two things that are supposed to be contradictory. But em QB the platform where they've done this for internal combustion engines with never really this huge cost saving success, and it's because Volkswagen with so enthusiastic about their variety that they never really got the cost savings down. So only in the last few years have they really clamped down on the righty that's offered. And they're going to do this to like a sort of crazy degree for m e b so the electric cars Volkswagen is offering is going to have far far fewer steering wheels or seats or something that you're allowed to have the customer purchase. But the result will be a huge huge boon in simplicity both in engineering and sales for folks second and does that bring the cost down as well. I mean VW's obviously goes regulatory imperative to invest in this platform and the suddenly plenty of competition. It's going to catch up with. But it's also going to sell these things that are. Consume as one that can go distance that they need is that happening. Is there evidence that they can get the they haven't released actual prices all they release said is that their first hatchback electric car a car known as the ID Neo is going to cost the same as a diesel. That's about thirty thousand euros. But whether it ends up being twenty nine or thirty two nobody quite knows. 'cause they haven't announced it, but if you sort of put that into the realm of what attest to sell for in Germany, the model three starting prices fifty five thousand euros. So I mean, I wouldn't want to compare hatchback right, which is sort of a lesser vehicle beneficial on Saddam like the model three, but nevertheless, just on the price point comparison. I mean, if you want to buy an electric car in two thousand twenty folks that I can should have a considerably cheaper option. But they've even said that by two thousand twenty two or two thousand twenty three they wanna be able to sell a compact SUV that's electric for just eighteen thousand euros. That's like a third of the price of the current model three in Germany. So if they're able to actually execute on this that would be. Pretty pretty amazing whether they can actually create profits from it. It's a totally different answer. But certainly Volkswagen has a Connie's of scale that very very few carmakers can rival. And so how much of a head start? Tesla have against an is it planning to bring its prices down as well. It seems to have been a bit of a struggle with the three. At least meet the advertised affordability that they had originally promised. Catholics are funny. One isn't it? Because when we can say that the main thing for tesla in twenty eighteen was problems in production in God knows a lot of media stories written about that. But I mean, they managed to double their production just between the second quarter and the third quarter. I know he was a major disappointment with tesla came out for the fourth quarter. Just last week. Tesla said they they built something like ninety thousand vehicles and the street was disappointed because they were expecting ninety two thousand well, okay, fine. But that was more than double from the prior year. So tesla is ramping up at an incredible pace. I think the problem for tesla is I haven't yet had an annual profit. And given just the cost of lithium ion batteries and co balls and everything that has to go into an electric vehicle this really could be a con MI of Gail game. And that's where group like Volkswagen, but also GM also Toyota could really thrive. The main differences maybe worth pointing out is so much of this. Of course, the battery and tesla does have this unique strategy gigafactory of being far more involved in battery development than really any other car maker that. No. And how does this extend to the infrastructure for electric 'cause must be a huge differentiator for tesla. In terms of having the supercharge network rolled out across the US and increasing the around all the pulse of the world's is that problem being sold as well. And how much does the comic themselves have to get involved in this point. I think Volkswagen in probably all the carmakers have been reluctant to adapt. If you think of Henry Ford, and every carmaker sense, they just have not had to consider where you put petrol into your car. This is a different industry. But for whatever reason electric cars that just hasn't been the case. I mean, I guess with Pessoa having no super charger network to rely on it just built it it self and now other carmakers have sort of been pressured do the same thing because they know that nobody's going to buy their cars, if it's not easy to charge them so Volkswagen had a few different strategies. It's hard to say it in a single sentence. But you know, they have this joint development with the other German carmakers and Ford the company called honesty, that's releasing charging stations across Europe. And then they also have some more interest. Things. So, you know, if you have a cell phone, you probably have power Bank to charge it once in a while when you're on the go when you're on the train and they've actually just released and they're going to put into series production. I'd sort of giant power Bank that can charge four cars at once. And the idea that they can set them up in locations, and sort of gauge whether or not there's a demand for charging that works there. So you can sort of serve a gauging demand perspective. But also, let's say I don't know you had Woodstock being held over the course of a week and series of fields Volkswagen could sort of deploy these things within a few hours notice. And so people could drive their electric cars. So I don't know it looks like and thinking in a holistic sense in which they've never really had to before to make sure that there are charging stations and that they're also powered by renewable energy. So folks, I made this big push to say, you know, it doesn't make sense for you to buy an electric car. If you're just gonna fuel it by coal. So they're making sure that you can actually purchase energy. That's only coming from solar and wind. My final question is we've talked a lot about electric cars akals, the right electric vehicles will these companies to be. Vesting in the moment. I've written an awful lot about the crazy amounts of money that had going into electric scooter sharing companies electric bike sharing companies, and then I'll making the vehicles themselves by and large. They're just buying them from supplies primarily in China. But you sort of feel like as the world goes electric, the Volkswagen trying to create something that's maybe a bed of Tyler made electric called and adopting their existing models. But there's an opportunity says more radically rethink while the car is at this point, whether the hospice Gutu rule, something kind of smaller is that the right approach a cities congestion problems going to be sold by just having some all electric cause rather than gas-guzzling ones. Think if I was folks back in shareholder, and I certainly am not one. It would be my biggest concern, which is that they're spending billions upon billions, right? Thirty billion euros just in the next five years on electrifying, everything and they have really no interest or capacity to be involved with the micro mobility scooters that you mentioned individual ownership could die in favor of robo taxes and all that and Vokes. Have all companies just is not really at the forefront of that stuff. It's not to say that they don't have anything, you know, if you want to subscribe to a variety of Porsche's right now, you can do that with the Porsche passportprogram, but they're not really at the forefront of it. So I do think it's sort of based on the idea that individual owners are still going from a to b but in a sense, maybe it's premature to be thinking too much along those lines. I mean, you know, they did sell ten point eight million cars last year that was more than the previous year on even in a place like China where the market actually shrank for the first time since nineteen ninety Volkswagen was able to sell more cars and actually increase its market share. So you know, I think there's what ninety million cars sold a year, not many people really think that's actually going down between now and two thousand twenty five. And so really that's the market. They're going after right now tens of billions of car sold year. But more and more of them are going to be electric, whether this sets them up well for post two thousand twenty five is really a whole different question. And it's really hard to gauge. But even when you talk about rubber taxes, everybody involved wants those to be electric too. So the to sort of. Should go hand in hand. But it definitely true the tournaments he'll cut technologies way more of a revolution than simply changed powertrain internal combustion engine. Elector? Thanks very much time.
