Canada to ban the sale of new gas powered light vehicles by 2035. My bet is that gets bumped up significantly.

The Liberal government announced Tuesday it's speeding up its goal for when it wants to see every new light-duty vehicle sold in Canada to be electric.

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said that by 2035, all new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the country will be zero-emission vehicles.

Honestly, I think the market itself beats 2035 by quite a bit.

Yeah, definitely a lot of innovation and upgrades in manufacturing capabilities can happen within 13-14 years so I donít doubt we can achieve that.

I just hope our recycling capabilities are there. I mean we have troubles recycling now, we should iron our issues out. Everything is finite.

BEVs are great and make the most sense at this time and we'll into it future for light vehicles, no question. Infrastructure is easier and quicker to implement than H2 so it makes sense BEV adoption will move at a more rapid pace right now. It was our fastest path to start helping the climate.

Hydrogen fuelcells are the solution for aviation, shipping, trucking, off grid power, and backup power. Hydrogen is the most abundant source of energy in the world but harnessing it efficiently is the key.

Keep in mind 10-15 years ago much the same arguments were made against BEV's but year over year advancements were made to drive costs down and increase efficiency of battery packs. The same will happen with hydrogen as it's at an inflection point now and countries are investing in the technology along with industry, oil and gas etc.

Also keep in mind that we are already battery constrained and that mining the rare earth metals required for BEV's will become more and more challenging as time goes on and as more manufacturers ramp up their BEV production. Mining is also not exactly environmentally friendly.

I think we'll see good adoption of BEV's over the next 15 years As H2 production matures and costs are driven down it's possible we'll get to a point where we transition to H2 being the primary fuel for mobility.

The world needs a multi faceted approach to combat climate change.

Hydrogen isn't a source of energy. Hydrogen is just a different form of battery.

The Cybertruck has been removed from Tesla’s website.

It’s probably not completely dead, but that’s not a good look for Tesla. Most knowledgeable people have known that the likelihood of Tesla hitting the targeted pricing fir that vehicle was a pipe dream anytime in the next couple years.

Rivian is starting to ship trucks, Ford Lightning will likely start next year. Tesla has never looked close to delivering Cybertruck.

I suspect it's due to battery allocation issues. The Cybertruck is going to use more batteries than a car. Given their low price target, they probably feel making 1.3 cars per Cybertruck(or whatever the ratio is) is more profitable. I think we'll see lots of these types of things going forward, as companies realize batteries are the real limiting factor. It's also why the Tesla semi doesn't make a lot of sense.



This bodes well for my bet with my brother the Ford Lighting would outsell the Cybertruck. Yay me.

That bet is money in the bank already.

The advertised pricing fir the Cybertruck was known to be out to lunch for a while already. Itís way bigger and heavier than their other vehicles, so would require significantly more battery capacity, and was the cheapest vehicle they had advertised. It made no sense.
