A lot of people ask, "The market's going to
grow. How do we minimize the negative impacts of that?" And raise
questions—"Are there different technologies that would make sense
for China and India?" It's not obvious at this point that there
are. So it's really using the best of the affordable technology -
smaller, lighter vehicles—and then, I think, providing alternatives so that
these countries don't become dependent on the private vehicle to quite
the same extent that the US and Western Europe have become. So those are very
big questions, because just expanding European-, Japanese-size vehicles into
China and India and other parts of the world that are growing rapidly, we are
still going to consume a lot of fuel.
