I'll believe it when I see it. 

Till then, it's a soft drink ad-gimmick.  Clear-out the inventory, then magically reintroduce it.

I watched the first two, but that third one, the guy was annoying and almost seemed like a fanboy of EV.

3rd-try:
I did see a later quote from the head of Stellantis saying the move to electric was not market driven but politically driven. Depending on the source, Dodge has various versions of how this plays out. The last one I read was the introduction of a turbo 3.0 in-line 6 that comes in trims from around 350 to over 600 HP. Same article said the 392/485 HP engine would remain after the 5.7 is gone. And BMW refuses to give a date promising a switch to all electric. They feel the IC engine will be around for a long time.
Bottom line is I think the switch to EV's should be market driven. I'm sick of the damn politicians telling me what I need. Get a common-sense administration that reopens our oil production and leave it to those of us who will be making the payments to buy what we want!!!
Some dim-witted policy makers with plans to jack the gas prices to the moon will face push-back they've never imagined.
