Despite all of the hype and push for electric vehicle motoring, people are starting to realize that EVs don’t have the potential that everyone seems to be promising because, well, EVs have been found to be very impractical and don’t suit many drivers’ needs. Even Chrysler and Fiat’s CEO, Sergio Marchionne agrees.
Marchionne himself said that now there’s a new CAFE rating for the future, the big improvements will come in the form of more efficient diesel and gasoline engines.
However, Marchionne does recognize that he is up to a serious challenge to try and get Chrysler’s CAFE rating up to 35.5 mpg by 2016 because of Dodge’s performance brand. And we know he’s up to the challenge.
