Was wondering, why haven't heard much from Hackett yet...outlining a strategy? Anything?
I find this perilous. When the next gas crisis comes--and there will be one--and fuel efficient cars all come from China, that will be rather ungood (sic).
EVs are still a long way away from being viable to a lot of people of average/normal given the price of admission. $40K for a "Bolt" is $20K too much for a "Sonic EV". That gap will close, but how fast? I suppose displacing ICE economy cars to China would make sense with a gargantuan effort at producing affordable EVs, but this is a head scratcher.
I'm not against Chinese products so long as the quality is there and I think the Chinese will nail that parameter the nanosecond it gives them an advantage. Arguably, the Geely XC90 is well made...
