Herbert Diess is clinging to life despite the rising sea.
The CEO of Volkswagen confessed that arch-rival Tesla outperformed expectations,
but he still believes that the manufacturer of the famous Beetle will overtake Elon Musk & Co.
and become the world's top seller of electric vehicles by 2025...maybe.
"We were surprised that our primary US opponent was so quick and well-prepared," Diess said at the Financial Times Future of the Car 2022 conference.
"It will be difficult, but we will not give up. I believe there is still a potential that we will be first by 2025. At the very least, second."
