Mary stated early this year GM would overtake Tesla by 2025 as the top US-based seller of electric vehicles. Not happening.

Nothing is touching tesla for a while. Been saying that.

Car makers will catch up but tesla IS THE EV that works. Right now. With the network to back it up.

I love my elonmobile.

Still better than the Tesla record of putting product in the hands of paying customers on time. The model s refresh was a fucking disaster, only rivaled by the model x. Then there is the vapor ware cybertruck, semi, and roadster. Itís almost a case study in fraud.

I only care about Tesla for the stock. Lol. I pay them Zero mind as I am not interested in any EV at this time. People argue nonstop about them and it's an appliance and bad build quality blah blah. No fucks to give. Drive what you want. It just blows my mind that the pinnacle of Chevy, the Vette has been so hyped up and they can barely get them out to customers. I need them out so I can smoke them in the GTR I, like everyone else have a few deposits down to get one but I feel I will not be able to wait that long. We shall see

Tesla stock isn't doing well either, but that's a completely different matter. Half price in the last year.

Yes, it's sad when a "Halo car" is made not for profits but for the Halo effect, and then it can't even be put into the hands of the public where the Halo effect actually causes positive momentum for a brand. Like, what the hell are their priorities?

Are you talking about when they first introduced the volt? Or bolt or whatever that old model was called? Yeah their technology wasn’t up to par back then it only made sense to back out of something they know nothing about.

When Tesla came on board everyone laughed at them. Even Ford. And now look at them, they’re playing catch up to Tesla.

You’re right it doesn’t fit everyone’s lifestyle, I wasn’t saying it did.

But as time moves foward we adapt. That’s how our species work. We adapt.
Seriously, you have a devoid knowledge of EV history. Cos270 is talking about GM's EV1. It was an attempt to placate CARB's zero-emission mandate of 1990; yes 33 years ago. It was a compact 2-seat Battery-Electic that used lead acid wet-cells. It was only leased to customers in California and was an engineering exercise to judge customer acceptance of EV. GM shelved the EV1 because despite California's desire to power automobiles by the Sun God Helios, there was no market for the EV1. CARB eventually bagged its zero emissions mandates and repackaged the requirements.

Both generations of the GM Volt are actually a highly sophisticated hybrid EV, far more complex in drivetrain design and engineering than a Tesla. Tesla is just a big-ass battery EV. I doubt a Tesla engineer could conceive of the Voltec drive system and complex planetary gear set it uses, let alone manufacture it.

The Bolt beat the Model 3 to market and actually sold for $35K. Elon is good at hype. And BTW Tesla's EV drive system initially was not home grown.
You will be answered shortly by the Vette nutswinger. He will tell you how your wrong. Lol. It will be the same spin. Tesla network, other will catch up but they are 10 years behind, no one can change the future this is coming and you can't do anything about it. Can't wait to get my SUPERCAR from Chevy. Anyone who doesn't agree with me is a clown. 🤣😂👅💩

He spent his past hundreds of posts saying basically the same thing... hard to believe a grown-ass adult had that much time lurking the forums responding to any even marginally hesitancy on just Tesla, not EV in general, Tesla only.

They could all be left fighting for a small market share of new car buyers. All while Akio Toyoda is sitting laughing selling every new Prius they can sell. I am not against EV's in the slighest, we have a EV and a plugin hybrid in are household. But I get a feeling some of these brands setting hard EV transition dates could end up in trouble. Keep in mind GM is currently making record profits all while selling 90+% ice vehicles(they are just going to abandon that?).

Given that those in power today won't be in power 13 years from now, I don't see how it's wise to assume nothing will change in the next 13 years. betting on tomorrow based on what is true today is foolish given all the unanswered questions and un-invented solutions that are key to getting us there.

Diversification is usually the best long term strategy. This applies to more than just retirement funds.

Industry forecasts call for BEV to make up 50% of new vehicle production in 2031 in North America.

Sure some light duty company fleets may convert to EV but the majority will still be mall crawlers like the current gas market. They're likely seeing Ford's success with focusing their efforts on light trucks and wanting their share too.

Of course, the rural areas can't keep trucks on their lots over here either... EVs would fit the more urban duty jobs like the trades, short trips with or without towing. I think a larger issue would be converting that market from a V8 to a silent EV.

Those companies might think twice now. Prices for Silverado EV Work Truck in 3WT and 4WT trim came out last week. Only difference between the trims is pack size. $80k for a work truck.

3WT - $72,905
4WT - $77,905

How exactly does GM plan a on making the 1WT trim at $39k. My guess they make handful of them initially and then raise 1WT trim at least $10k.

That's what Tesla did with their $35K wonder EV (even though they promised it to be under 30K). They made as few as possible to say that they were made. Currently that same model sells for over $48K. Smoke and mirrors.

The future is going to be so great, or so I'm told.

And the EV hummer sold out instantly. And the ford lightning sold out instantly. 100k EV trucks.

Every tesla model went up in price, yet the model Y is the BEST SELLING EV to date.

Yup things are getting better. People are spending more on something others think have no chance of existing in today's world.

Holy fuck i love killing all these arguments.

Car makers will catch up i'm sure. Give it time. Our 2030+ lifestyle with cars will be great!

There is no argument because we all agree. EV's are rising in price despite promises the will only get cheaper. Seems you agree with all of us on that.

I remember when gas went up in price, people still lined up at the gas stations and bought it. The gas didn't get any better or offer anything new, it just cost more.
