I agree with David, not many people in this country give a hoot about a simple EV, that want GIZMOs in their cars, they want APPs, to do almost everything but make coffee and can give a damn about range. Why are large SUV sales always up?? who knows, When oil hit 140$ a tub, the sales went down a bit, but its selling at a price thats very low now.
The Volt,, thats a laff LOLOL just another over hyped hybrid, and 40 miles on batts WOW that cost about a billion $ to develop, Ever see what the Leaf will do with milage Vs range at speeds???? they dont want that let out, But its at very very slow speeds that it gets the 100 mile range . Remember, advertising a new product involves lots of almost lieing LOLOL.
Give people a few almost good facts and they will rush out and buy anything and think the world has landed at their feet. its all BS. any one can build their own conversion that will get 100 miles on LEAD, if they go 15 MPH LOLOL . Cup holders, DVD players, GPS, internet service, heart monitors, sonar and radar and a quad 50 mounted on top is with the sheep want. in fact I dont think they know what they want , there given this garbage to buy and havent a clue what it is or how it works !!!
Electric vehicles are for people who know what they want, and will jump through hoops to buy one, 99% of the car buyers will still buy gas guzzlers and shoe boxes to show off to every one. IMHO, I would never buy a new car or truck, who needs more software than the space shuttle or the Lunar lander. who need 22 inch tires. or seating for 8 , if you only have 2 people to drive around . and range for most people is mega BS, if you know you only need maybe 30 miles a day, why even try and go more that 100 miles...Rent a car and drive there if you have to go 200 miles or more. My ElCamino gets about 80 miles at normal speeds..BUT !!!! I only need to go 15 miles a day. But I can get there at over 120 MPH LOLOL But thats just me LOLOL
