Last gasp effort by them to stem the plunge in sales but too late with more ppl reading the bigger picture into the road to nowhere with EV's.

Damn, $250 an hour is already here with barely any market penetration.

"Bryan Dean Wright, former CIA operations officer and host of the podcast "The Wright Report," told Fox News Digital that American society has shifted to EVs largely because some people are "just so hellbent on making sure that this transition happens, even if that means wrecking the economy, in terms of electricity, its reliability, the grid, getting brownouts or blackouts or economic wreckage by people who otherwise can't afford these new vehicles."

"That cost is being shouldered by buyers and car companies by raising the price of gas-powered vehicles, [which] is basically just a direct wealth transfer, just paying for EV subsidies and that will grow over time, if we continue to keep this regime in place," Brent Bennett, a policy director for Life:Powered, an initiative of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, told Fox News Digital.

California, Wright said, is likely a "really sad test case" for what the rest of the country could face, where he said it currently costs about $250 an hour to service an EV. The state has made a strong push for EVs under Gov. Gavin Newsom, and Californians will by 2035 not be allowed to buy new gas-powered cars and light trucks."

And that's the point. While I'm sure if people of low economic status didn't work or live in or near industrial environments some component of their health would be better, I think it's is very hard to quantify into percentages of improvement and tie a dollar figure to it. Does using battery electric trucks make sense for dock level movement of cargo, sure if it is feasible. Will it improve dock worker health? Maybe, but the human animal has a wide range of tolerance level for environmental stress.

In my case for 15 years I sat in an automobile 20 hours a week commuting in traffic. Near 85 minutes daily of it in heavy stop and go traffic. Studies say that is not good for humans either. I'm well above low socio-economic status.

We all have life burdens.

Exactly, we all have life burdens, why add one big one called range anxiety by owning a EV.

British Columbians are becoming less keen on going electric for their next vehicle, a new survey finds.

The survey, conducted by AutoTrader, reports that interest in electric vehicles is dropping year-by-year nation-wide.

Why anyone in Canada would want an EV, even with home charging is a mystery to me because every part of the country gets first shot at a polar vortex.

Fox News, the CIA, Texas' opinion, and California slander all in one neat package. I thought the right deeply mistrusts the CIA/FBI? If I were a Texan, I'd be more worried about a statewide power outage bankrupting my neighbors. And Fox News... well, y'all showed your hand with that one.

Can't wait for the new threads that're about to pop up after today's reveal of the revised Tesla Model 3 Performance. Faster 0-60, weighs about 100lbs more, about 40 miles less range, and 7 more horsepower than the 2024 BMW M3 Comp I was considering. For about $30k less, before Federal and State rebates.

Regardless of the love or hate of EVs, I don't think anyone can refute the performance at that price point.

That why I say no thank you for EV. I know a lot of people (including a few of my friends) switched to EV strictly because of the EV incentives. They forgot there is no free lunch in this world. You pay what you get. Range anxiety, expensive when they are new and no value in second hand (no one want to buy), battery blues, charging hasseles, eat your tires like no tomorrow unless you drive like grandpa/grandmom.

Conceptualize if you will, the inability to understand what a peer reviewed paper entails and how little requirements it has to have outside of citing and format requirements.

If you are actually considering a model 3 over an m3 comp you never should have shopped for an m3. M buyers know there’s more to performance (let alone the rest of the car) than silly 0-60 times.

I never stated that; I simply compared a new car release's performance figures to a car I'm currently looking at. But thanks for the gatekeeping. My current S55 has been a dream.

Performance figures or hypothetical 0-60 times? My bike goes 0-60 faster than a M3P at 1/3 the price. Does that make it a useful comparison? Apples and oranges.

My point about text books is they cost a lot of money to manufacture vs. some internet site that can change the words for free. If a scientific text book does not meet academic standards (what I meant by peer review) it will not sell and the publisher loses money. And text books teach the fundamentals of science study, which is what I use to judge internet scientific information. The internet is basically full of agenda-driven bullshit. So, no, scientific text books from 40 years ago are not outdated.

The study under discussion here, made no reasoning what effect automation has on reducing truck emissions. I read the article several times and I did not see the tie in into automation. I think we are 5 decades away (if ever) from automated over-the-road trucks. 50 years time is well past most climate scientists prediction of the point of no climatic return.
