California’s plan to require electric vehicles comes amid massive shift in auto industry

California could join France, Norway and the United Kingdom in banning cars with traditional combustion engines, after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order to end the sale of gas- and diesel-powered vehicles in the Golden State by 2035.

But there are plenty of obstacles, including the technical challenges of sourcing raw materials and producing enough batteries and fuel-cells, as well as the need to deliver vehicles consumers will want to buy.

“If the government tells you that you can’t build anything other than electric vehicles, consumers will have no other products to choose from,” said Sam Abuelsamid, principal automotive analyst with

Dave Versical, chief of editorial operations for Automotive News, believes the 2020 outlook for electric vehicles is weak. In his commentary piece published yesterday, Versical reports that auto executives speaking with him privately are using terms like “carnage” and “Armageddon” to describe the EV sales landscape for 2020.
