-and divorced from reality – car company CEOs are these days.
Mueller told reporters that VW will undergo a "wide-ranging transformation" that will end up with the company "focusing more" on "digital services" and "zero emissions" vehicles; that it would be sinking money into "mobility services" such as ride-sharing apps and car-sharing.

Well, it was.
But not anymore.
Instead of $22k TDI Jettas that can go 50-plus miles on a gallon of fuel, VW's Matthias wants to "focus" on Germanic Teslas like the electric Golf – which costs almost $30,000 and goes maybe 70 miles on a full charge. VW can't send me an eGolf to review because the thing can't make it here in a single trip, in a single day.
