FCA’s Marchionne Says Accelerating Electric Car Sales Prematurely Will Endanger The Planet

Electric cars are more of a threat to the planet than a potential saviour, and governments should stop forcing them on to the buying public, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) CEO Sergio Marchionne said.

Government action to spur electric car sales prematurely, without first making sure the source of their energy has been cleaned up, will increase the production of CO2 to dangerous levels and endanger the planet, according to Marchionne.
