    Sergio Marchionne the head of Fiat Chrysler has died aged 66. Sorry no link - just glimpsed a headline. RIP.

    I wonder how his replacement will advance EVs, if at all?

    AFAIK he wasn't so much a car guy. He was an accountant, a bean counter. And you know. . . A really good bean counter was exactly what it took to save Fiat and save Chrysler. He was the right man, in the right place, at the time when he was needed most, and he did an outstanding job. He was coming up on retirement soon, and it's a shame that he never got to enjoy that, because he really earned it. RIP.

    He will fill a good niche in the ICE fossil record. Preserving the status quo just like our Orange Dictator on The Hill.

    Didn't sound like a "nice guy" and why would anyone call him "visionary" - I don't see it.
    wouldn't be surprised if he killed LaFarrari - he didn't expand this concept, did he?? and a BEV version?? not yet.
