EV Production Plans Are Being Scaled Back. Here’s WHY

From Transport Evolved.

After spending the last few years promising that they were all-in on electric vehicles, automaker after automaker is now announcing delays to their previously stated electric vehicle plans.

Even Tesla, which has historically dominated the EV marketplace, appears worried about the next few years of sales as the economy shows signs of uncertainty ahead.

But are legacy automakers making excuses? Are there legitimate reasons for the delay? We already know there’s no time to loose – but who is really in charge here?
