    Given that the network is owned by the Qatar government and that the country's economy is almost entirely based upon oil production I don't find this at all surprising. If the world switches from ICEs to EVs Qatar goes from being wealthy to being broke.

    I think she was asking the right questions, but many of the answers were misinformed. I'm impressed that they devoted a full 25 minutes to it.

    Nothing is going to happen before antything radical is happening?
    well I certainly think Tesla is quite radical.
    all the "problems" mentioned are already adressed by Tesla. Like range, charging infrastructure "nerdy" design etc.
    As mentioned above, these guys really don't know what They are takling about.

    Interesting format. The norm would be one guest who was pro, and one against. Instead, they chose two who were 'on the fence'. The way this was done, the myths weren't debunked and the hard questions weren't asked or answered.

    It seemed the interviewer knew more about the subject than the guests.
