You are all socialists. Reply September 6, 2019 at 9:07 pm People are buying some electric cars. Tesla sales are soaring. But most people aren't going to buy braindead EVs that don't have enough range or have been uglified beyond belief. No other car company makes an EV that matches or exceeds the specs of the 2012 Tesla Model S, let alone the current Model S. Also, availability of most EVs is still a problem. Most dealers don't carry them, and many car makers refuse to sell them in states that don't mandate them. It's no wonder that the sales figures are so dismal. They also aren't advertising them even when they're available. (Tesla doesn't have to because they rely on other ways to promote their cars, but other car makers do need to advertise if they expect to sell their cars.) Reply September 6, 2019 at 9:08 pm Electric vehicles are impractical and ironically eco-unfriendly. If I ever own one, it will be because I didn't buy it.

Additionally, consider the environmental costs of all the rare minerals and everything else that goes into the batteries. Who are they trying to deceive? Reply September 7, 2019 at 5:06 am Passing CA smog is always a nail biter. No other state has such high standards.

Reply September 7, 2019 at 1:05 pm Republicans actually want more pollution from burning fossils fuels. They will sue car companies who try to reduce that pollution. If you think global warming is a hoax created by China, vote Republican. If you think increasing co2 pollution is dangerous vote Democrat. Reply September 7, 2019 at 1:36 pm After all is said and done, a lot more is said than done. Reply September 7, 2019 at 2:07 pm Kristen makes an excellent point regarding eco-regulations. Most of them are regressive and cost middle and working class people disproportionately more than the rich. A prime example is California's summer blend gasoline which is often in short supply and therefore costs about 75 cents a gallon more than the national average. I paid $3.29 at Costco for my last fill. The national average is $2.55. Simply complying with the Federal standard would put billions of dollars into the pockets of the working class and have a direct benefit on their lives. Reply September 7, 2019 at 2:57 pm Imagine what the world would look like today, if, Henry Ford stopped and asked permission. when you have to stop and ask the government to create any industry, you're already setting yourself up for failure. The marijuana industry for example. People are so happy to get legalized weed, they don't even realize that they are asking the government to create run and control an entire industry. What industry has the government successfully run, as of today? Reply September 7, 2019 at 3:04 pm In 1948 Ford Motor Company headed to indestructible body. Made from hemp. And a flathead v8 not produced steam out of the tailpipe. Steam that would eventually be recovered and reintroduced into the air fuel mixture. Pushed into the cylinder, to create the steam engine affect. As of today. The worst thing the automotive industry has ever done is, sold a lawyer a Corvair.

Reply September 7, 2019 at 5:39 pm Ford, the only auto company that didn’t kneel down and take the Feds tit ! Reply September 7, 2019 at 5:47 pm eCars are heavier for their size so tires won't last as long, they're going to be cheaper to maintain but far more expensive to repair. Because of that expense, cars like the Leaf or the Prius are going to be 'one-trick-ponies'. Unless the cars have less then 80K miles, no one wants to afford the on coming costs. I heard locally to me that a 6 yr. old Prius w/ 143K miles needed a generator(charging the battery) to be replaced. The replacement cost was $5K plus labor. Scrap it…right(?)…wrong! You'll be charged by the dealer to take the battery to a recycler(like is done w/ tires) but the battery is toxic so you can't do it, unlike tires. Green people suck. Reply September 7, 2019 at 5:50 pm The Soviet satellite of California strikes again. Reply September 7, 2019 at 6:01 pm Large corporations only exist because of corruption in government. Reply September 7, 2019 at 7:20 pm Everyone forced to buy/drive electric cars= power grid overload and toxic pollution from discarded lithium batteries= no one gets to own/drive an electric vehicle! That’s all. Stop mega corporations from producing cheap wares in countries like China and leveraging themselves to be the sole supplier or all our needs, and we won’t need as many vehicles on the road. Make and sell things in this country. Build merchant businesses in all towns and support community growth in all sectors. We could walk or bike for most of our needs. A powerful few corporations are now the sole providers of all goods sold to Americans and of which is produced by foreign slave labor. Thus allowing these select few oligarchs to make more profit. I have questions for these greedy pricks…haven’t you figured out we all die? How much money is too much? Does how you get this wealth bother you at all? Guess you can’t ask sociopaths anything to do with humility! Move on. Reply September 7, 2019 at 8:16 pm See movie, "who killed the electric car". Then understand America will never be an electric car country. Reply September 7, 2019 at 9:27 pm Since nearly 90% of all our electrical energy comes from coal-burningpowerplants, it makes NO sense to think electrical cars are "Green." Themore electric cars there are on the road, the more coal is needed to producethe energy required to charge up those batteries. Duh! How much more stupid can libs get??? Good grief!
