Re: [think_ev] More information about Kamkorp
As always, these updates are invaluable. Thank you very much. I will
look forward to trying to understand more of the article.
It is not a surprise to me to read the article author's overall
summary, that the intention of the sale was not necessarily to sell to
a company that would make a go of it, but we'll see. Maybe, even then
the company can make a go of it? Will have to wait for more. I vowed
awhile back to try not to entertain false hopes for victory, when it
comes to going up against companies which deliberately run EV efforts
into the ground.
From Ford's behaviour before the sale, they seemed to fit the bill of
a company not doing its best to make EVs and sell them at a profit.
