No more petrol cars or diesel vehicles will be made and sold after 2025

  • Professor Tony Seba thinks that all vehicles will be electric by 2025 and that people will stop driving altogether.

The Stanford University economist predicts that motorists will make the switch to self-driving electric cars to save money, causing the complete collapse of the oil industry.

In his report, Rethinking Transportation 2020-2030 reported in The Daily Telegraph, he even suggests that cities will ban human drivers from getting behind the wheel once data shows how dangerous they are compared to robots.

He said, “We are on the cusp of one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history.”

  • Professor Tony Seba predicts that motorists will make the switch to self-driving electric cars to save money.

“Internal combustion engine vehicles will enter a vicious cycle of increasing costs,” he says.

He added, “What the cost curve says is that by 2025 all new vehicles will be electric, all new buses, all new cars, all new tractors, all new vans, anything that moves on wheels will be electric, globally.”

In his futurist forecast he also foresees the “mass stranding of existing vehicles” and even people having to pay to dispose of their old cars.
