What I think this is an indication of is that the transition from ICE to EV is consumer driven and not by regulations.

ICE's will start depreciating faster, which will make consumers stop buying them, leading to all car manufactures moving all their future investments into EV's.

With a model cycle of 5-7 years the transition to EV's will likely for all new cars be before 2030.

And the next 5 years will be a good time to by you dream ICE car as a keeper

For me this is the early indications of this, hence news, but I may be wrong.
