Electric is the pivotal third album by The Cult. Released in 1987, the album marked a deliberate stylistic change in the band from a Gothic rock to a hard rock band. Rick Rubin, the producer on Electric, had been specifically hired to remake the band's sound in an effort to capitalize on the popularity of hard rock and heavy metal in the 1980s. The album was featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Together, we want to overcome the impact of the emissions scandal and lead Volkswagen into the age of electric mobility and digitalisation.
I'm considering (an electric car) as the new policy means electric cars aren't limited from driving on heavy pollution days while other types are.
Although the explosion of electric trucks in the market makes for an exciting time in the industry, it also poses a threat to automakers like Ford, which needs to stay two steps ahead of the competition in order to protect its primary source of profitability.
While Elon Musk is talking about that, Ford is increasing their investment overwhelmingly. I think Ford is increasing investment building new electric vehicles, 6,000 new employees -- union employees, I might add -- in the Midwest. The former Chrysler corporation... they are also making similar investments in electric vehicles. Intel is adding 20,000 new jobs making computer chips, so, President Joe Biden on Friday know, lots of luck on his trip to the moon.
While electric truck sales will be fairly significant in coming years, I don't think it will displace diesel anytime soon especially in highway, long-haul trucking where obviously battery capacity and range anxiety present itself.
