Agreed. And exactly why Ford started Ford E so that it can let the old Ford Co. unwind, they will likely liquidate it and go through bankruptcy just so they can get out of dealer franchise agreements. Ford E (the new company) is EV only and will likely start selling direct.
Unfortunately, this is the only way most of these other brands will be able to switch to consumer direct since dealers are still clinging on to the old model and price-gauging customers with dealer markups or "market" markups which is nothing but profit taking.
