Very true article.

Its heavily underestimated how hard it is to turn a company around in terms of culture. If the CEO or PR department makes large announcements it does not mean a lot for the future of a company if we talk about a paradigm shift. This is for me one of the main reason why I believe the large ICE makers who dominate the market today will likely be smaller players in the future if not forced to merge or even worse.

We will see a lot of changes in that industry in the future and that change has more to do with the inability to change a culture versus to build good EVs.

Some years ago an executive at Westpac (Australia's largest bank at the time) said "Changing corporate culture takes 6 months per layer of management". The quote stuck in my mind. I think the incumbent ICE manufacturers have lots of layers of management.
