    The thing about European cities and suburbs is that they travel much fewer miles to travel to work or other destinations while in the US our commutes are much longer for work and play. Thus a lower range EV is ideal for countries like The Netherlands, Germany, Norway, Finland.

    And it's not like the NACS money was coming out of Elmo's pocket, the gov't was subsidizing the hell out of it.....

    Everything he’s done has been funded primarily by your and my taxes. He’s the biggest welfare queen in the US

    100 MPGe = 33 kWh per 100 miles.

    So, a taco that gets 20MPG uses the equivalent of 165 kWh per 100 miles.

    Maths. It's easy.

    No? It was all tesla, and the fed dollars were for CCS and CCS+X.

    FHWA put out an RFI to change the subsidy rule for chargers to include NACS, before Elmo threw his tantrum and fired everyone. Ford probably lost more money on NACS than Tesla.

    According to the financial math I have seen, Elmo gets the equivalent of $12/ year from every man, woman and child in the USA....

    That’s weird, because there was a huge buzz that part of the reason that Google and Apple gave up their self driving cars and electric car projects was because Chinese EVs were on the horizon, now there is a 180 from those in power that we are not planning on flooding the market to fill in the lack of affordable electric vehicles?

    If you’ve recently traveled to China, electric car fires are a big thing. The CCP government, of course, is trying to suppress news because these are all Chinese companies and they want to start dumping these things in Europe, Southeast Asia, and Pacific markets.

    I’m guessing it’s related to how many duffel bags of gold bars and diamonds exchange hands.

    This will spur more US battery and EV production by reducing the need for China to always supply these materials and batteries. It will be tough slog but a necessary one.

    This was on my local news this evening, glad they managed to drag it outside before it completely engulfed the entire dealership.

    As some one who doesn’t own any amount of land especially any with mineral rights, please explain why your mineral rights are not paying out
