RE: Washington state bans new gas light vehicle sales as of 2030

I would imagine one easy way around that is to have manufacturers label all gas vehicles as a 2029 model year. :)

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Interesting. Still, can’t hurt to have more North American built capacity. I know mining in three Canadian provinces is ramping up to deal with the raw materials demand for the growing North American battery production. It’s all good. I know, bought stocks in them, I just don't recall if they're Canadian, Australian (biggest) or Ameerican, or joint-venture, lol. Another aside, congratulations for being the No. 1 country in the world. No wonder my brother don't want to move to California despite the invite of my sister -- although all his kids want to and one, in fact, already relocated. Thank you.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

@Reisender - It is still a South Korean company. I wonder development of Elon's purchase of Maxwell. My last was that they will actually focus on new materials (away from lithium?) An aside, your link showed a restored Land Rover Defender converted into EV. Love that old Defender seeing them leaving us stuck in the mud or high flood waters in the jungles of Borneo with our Land Cruisers. Interesting.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

GM has some good news on the chip shortage Spring Hill plant starting sooner Ford, Nissan not so good. More downtime for F and Nissan Toyota planned ahead. In spite of their famed just-in-time parts delivery Toyota feared a chip shortage and built some inventory. Now they are reaping the benefits. Toyota had chip inventory Intel after the administration summit said they will attend to this soonest with quick solutions. The operative word or question, is how quick -- the problem is now. But it's good the administration and the industry is on the same page realizing this is an strategic material that should be produced domestically to be weaned from the dominant Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturing. Hope on batteries too -- and soon with Japanese and South Korean dominance. Although less strategic as they are allies. More US battery capacity coming. https://electrek.co/2021/04/14/gm-second-massive-battery-cell-gigafactory-us-lg/

RE: Rivian electric pickup to be powered by Samsung batteries.

Yeah, it was a joke. Samsung-Note 7-explocing batteries-Samsung-car batteries... :)

RE: Rivian electric pickup to be powered by Samsung batteries.

Just do a search for Note 7. It got so bad that airlines banned them. :) Yah but who knows what chemistry those were. There are literally dozens of battery chemistries used in 2170’s.

RE: Surprise - Cybertruck can be a 6-seater

I saw a pic of the Lordstown truck and it kinda looked like it has something similar.

RE: Rivian electric pickup to be powered by Samsung batteries.

Hmm, didn't Samsung have some issues with exploding batteries a few years ago? :) Not sure. It’s hard to find info on them. LG has had some issues with theirs.

RE: A three cylinder Bronco.....a THREE cylinder Bronco???

I just went to the new 2021 Bronco build & price feature on the Ford website. So, they want me to pay nearly 30 grand for a base model Bronco Sport, and my one and only engine choice is a blasted THREE cylinder 1.5-liter?? Really??? Now, I can (almost) see only 4 color choices, and only one interior choice (color AND material), but sorry folks, I just can't bring myself to buy a little three-banger. It brings back memories of Geo Metros and the like. C'mon Ford, don't force everybody to buy up, and up, and up to get something worth having. There, done venting. I just read where Chevy might put a 3 cup in their Camero, NOW THATS JUST WRONG! :S Local scuttlebutt here is that the Camaro will be electric by 2024. It would almost have to be to be competitive by then. Or they will have to drop their price to under 20 grand if they keep it as an ice. GM says they won’t produce ICE vehicles past 2035 anyway. They may as well gitterdun. https://www.musclecarsandtrucks.com/chevrolet-camaro-plant-set-to-build-an-ev-by-2024-what-it-could-mean/

RE: Rivian electric pickup to be powered by Samsung batteries.

Who else is using samsung batteries? A new battery would make me a bit leery on Rivian. I don’t know. But I think the Kona might be. Not sure. It is a 2170 format but no idea on the chemistry. The 2170 is kind of old school but is well supported and proven tech. The non plaid model S and model X will be using 2170’s for at least a couple more years. Rivian is a new company so going with a proven format might be the safe and wise bet. Hope it works out for them.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Mod, close thread it has gone way off topic What does ev units have to do with ice delivety dates? The original topic was about the waiting period for a certain SUV. I simply contributed my experience about an SUV we are looking into that we will be using to tow a little travel trailer. Specifically because we can’t even do a test drive until one hits the lot. I don’t see the point in categorizing these discussions based on type of fuel. Jmho.

RE: gas mileage

We seemed to always be around 8 or 9 pulling a grand Cherokee when we used to have our gas coach. 32 is a nice size rig for touring and living. We went up to a 40. Kinda big.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Some one please tell me why almost every post in TOW VEHICLES is turned into a Tesla or electric car post. Neither are tow vehicles! What are you talking about. Lots of people are towing little RV's with EV's. We see it here often.Only thing I ever saw about a tesla towing was a U-Tube on how bad it was. There ya go. Don’t buy one. Meanwhile they seem to work fine for those who have them. You might think about being a little more respectful of people who make different choices than you. Adults do that. Or go start your own forum where the only members allowed are those who choose RV’s and tow vehicles that you approve of. Just sayin. Personally I have never seen anyone towing so much as an 8' landscape trailer let alone a small RV with an EV, be it on the highways around DC/MD/VA or any of the dozens or hundreds of campgrounds I've been to. Must be a lot different wherever you are, just sayin. Meh. I wouldn’t say it’s common. But this time of the year it’s not unusual to see little teardrop trailers, jet skis, boats etc behind an Audi E-tron, model X or model Y. There are lots of SUV’s pulling little RV’s around here.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

Good luck on that big jump into downsizing. Never really into big rig but still made that upgrade so wifey can have sofa and full size bath. Best decision in my life after splitting the atom with bottle cap and soda straw. lol Happy wife... I hear ya. We are waiting to see his model X before we make any decisions. But we know we’ll never explore those places that we have been driving by with the 40 foot diesel pusher. We are keeping our Cybertruck reservation for now. The thing with the cybertruck is we’ll end up as a two vehicle family again if we go that route. With the model X we could theoretically sell the model 3 and stay a one vehicle household. Time will tell.

RE: Wow, 6 months wait for a Chevy-Tahoe

A model X Tesla is min four months out right now. At least here in BC. The X is in the process of a major refresh that requires an overhaul of the assembly line that should be nearing completion after 3 months of lost production. This has nothing to do with the global chip shortage. The same goes for the model S. When these two vehicles get back into production that will add even more unit volume and significantly more revenue for Tesla. Good to know. We have a neighbour waiting for one. I’m kinda looking forward to test driving his....and that could be dangerous...from the financial aspect anyway. :) LOL. Please give us a report on what is new. It is supposed to be a very significant upgrade. Especially if he springs the extra $30k for the "Plaid" version with three motors and 1,020hp. Delivery in the US is showing May/June. Model X info He’s not getting the plaid. He is looking at it for the same reason we are. To pull a small teardrop type trailer. In his case a safari alto and in our case a little guy max. We are both down sizing from motorhomes. This time around we want to get into the smaller campgrounds and in our case the island campgrounds off BC. We need something smaller for that. Especially for the smaller island ferry’s. Should be an interesting transition. :).
