“Fake” Electric Cars are Being Produced by American Automakers
It is a said thing when companies steal, because rather than giving to society through production they are taking away. It is especially even more disappointing when big companies steal. Corporate America is the way of achieving the American dream and to have holes of dishonesty in it is the last blow that American economy can suffer.
According to Digital Trends, major American automakers, like Ford, General Motors, Toyota and others are producing “fake” electric cars so that they can meet the Californian zero0emission vehicles standard. As consciousness toward protecting the environment is growing, laws and policies are being formed to reduce and control emission problems. The automotive industry has benefited by marketing environmentally-proficient cars that run on electricity rather than conventional fuels of oil, petrol and gasoline. Thus electric vehicles (EVs) market has grown over the recent years especially.
But in this “good act” of helping the environment, customers are being sold “fake” EVs. Though some are real indeed, however, the Green Car Reports points out that automakers are producing battery electric vehicles that will comply with the California regulations of zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs). The issue comes out of the fact that only a limited numbers of these are allowed to be produced, hence the rest are being “faked”. The prices are the same hence it is cheating their way out. If electric vehicles are indeed helpful to protect the environment, then a limitation in their production seems like a means to create trouble for automotive industry.
