Very hard to say what the ultimate new normal will become. Climate change isn't going to slow down much, despite the recent blip in emissions output. Wildfire season + corona virus sounds to me like a particularly bad stew, for example. There will be more and more crisis, that much is certain.
The biggest political and economic fight of our times is just getting started. The various entrenched interests won't relax their grip without a battle, but circumstances may not leave them much choice. We're already seeing voices of reason battling with fear mongers and conspiracy theory pirates.
I don't believe China will relinquish their lead in EVs, nor in any other 21st century technology (rare earth metal extraction, solar panels, etc, etc). As theirs is also the biggest car market by far, EVs will survive into the future if I'm right.
We may all end up driving Chinese made vehicles sooner rather than later. Trump is accelerating the decline of the American/Western post WWII hegemony. And who knows? Tesla may be the last American brand left standing. How ironic would that be!
