    I would use the law to chase cheating automakers and take the economy, mileage and emissions testing out of their hands. After all they don’t do their own crash testing, do they?

    I hope BMW realizes which of their executives lead their electric efforts astray. I also wonder about the coincidence of BMW teaming up with Toyota, and the sudden decline in BMW’s electric division. They went from BMWi “born electric” to showing us experimental hydrogen cars, and putting the “i” badge on hybrids, seems like Toyota to me.
