    As far I know, he was very much in favor of electric cars, as well as autonomous cars. FCA plays both sides (Waymo Electric Vans and Dodge Demon)

    I definitely think we will see more EVs in the near future from FCA

    “The FCA executive is known to make controversial comments on electric vehicles. He once pleaded customers not to buy his Fiat 500e because he was losing money off it. He generally recognizes the need for zero-emission vehicles, but he has been publicly skeptical about any business case for EVs.”

    So he was not against EVs, he was against losing money. Sounds like a good CEO
