    • A charging network is being created in Europe through a group effort that includes BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY), Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF), Ford (F +0.4%) and Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) brands Audi and Porsche.
    • The group sees an "ultra-fast high-powered" charging network along major highways with power levels up to 350 kW.

    • Elaine Chao is the pick of Donald Trump to be the Secretary of Transportation, according to numerous media outlets.
    • Chao served in the cabinets of Bush 41 and Bush 43. Early analysis is that she may be a known quantiy to the Detroit Three (GM, F, FCAU) who worked closely with her on a post-9/11 task force and broadly during the Bush years.
    • The big picture: There's been some concern over the impact of the Trump administration for EV sellers such as Tesla Motors (TSLA -1.9%), Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY) and Toyota (TM +0.7%) -- although the $7.5K federal tax break is already set to expire when automakers cross over the 200K U.S. EV sale mark. Federal fuel efficiency targets could be rolled back after Trump takes office, although some industry watchers think manufacturers are too far along in their EV, ridesharing and mobility projects to put the genie back in the bottle.

    • Ford's (NYSE:F) new EcoSport is set to become the smallest SUV in the Detroit automaker's line-up, but it could also fuel the big debate over automotive trade.
    • That's because the model will roll off a Ford assembly line in India, rather than one in the U.S.
    • The carmaker has also made plans to move all of its small car production to Mexico - a decision frequently cited by President-elect Donald Trump during his campaign.
