    Compliance vehicles

    Attached is an interesting article that was published in my newspaper yesterday. It says that auto manufacturers are in love with electric cars not because they are saving the planet but because it allows them to produce and sell cars that pollute and are less efficient than government requirements. I wonder why the major motorcycle companies are not yet on this bandwagon?

    We were told the same thing from the dealer no less when we purchased our 2020 Chevy Bolt.

    It was cheaper for them to lose money selling you an electric car than meet the current emission standards.

    An interesting spin on a government-designed capitalistic economic and environmental system.
