RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

I think population density and the MUCH higher cost of fuel makes Europe a better place to launch. For example: US $ and US Gallon Paris $5.54 London UK $5.79 Frankfurt $5.57 Yah that’s for sure Don. We travel a lot of miles by rental cars in Europe in a bunch of different countries. It’s pricey. A lot of fun though...and hard on the waste line. :) There should have been more wine than the servings of those tasty food for that fat dissolving true Mediterranean diet.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

From @2012 Coleman, from the king of gibberish @Bert Ackerman - "Europe is the greatest, other than we had to set them straight a couple of times. Why not move there? I would suggest France, you would fit right in. You can thank me later." Anyone see any substance on this post? Or is that channeling your demigod telling an elected representative of her people to "go back (to her country)" stupidly not knowing she was born here?

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Here is an interesting tidbit. Ford Transit BEV. https://insideevs.com/news/343761/2021-ford-transit-electric-van-everything-we-know/Amazon just ordered 100,000 of these..... from Rivian I wonder why the launch is in Europe (Amsterdam). Probably a few reasons. EV Infrastructure is much more modern and built out in general in europe. The netherlands is kind of the new and up and coming Norway for EV's in europe. The Tesla model 3 is literally the number one selling car there. Not electric car, but any car. Demand is much higher than supply right now. Distances are shorter so a shorter range vehicle is a good fit. Vehicle emission standards are almost exclusive of any gas or diesel burning vehicle in some cities now. If you are a politician and you are not a hard a$$ on city air quality and pollution you don't have a chance. We have a lot of family there and it has really become a hot topic in the last 5 years. That and they want their vehicles to be as quiet as a bike. Kinda cool. Excellent analysis! I agree with you. I was just in Europe and with the heat had to wear a Tesla hat and whenever I stop gets asked if I own one and even if I answer no, would be treated like a royalty (lol, the last one was an exaggeration). And in Europe, clean air, climate change and a healthy natural environment is not a partisan political issue.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Ford invested $500 Million in Rivian source Looks like GM and Rivian talks about it's investment was suspended with the agreement that "Rivian founder R.J. Scaringe reportedly decided to keep options open for the company in the near future." GM-Rivian Talk Broke Down

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Another 2020 truck. https://insideevs.com/news/371411/electric-pickup-truck-jac-iev330p/ Classic Chinese "appropriation" of U.S. designs. I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Not so bad in the looks department. Definitely copied from US models. I wonder about the performance. There are many locally-made EV in China but it is limited to within-city use. There are also limited range for-hire EV cars in Europe with configuration like that of Smart cars and operating like Lime scooters via phone apps.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

... gibberish of epic proportions. .. This from the king of epic gibberish: Ralph Cramden aka BillyBob Jim, and now Bert Akerman. Narcissistic personality disorder — a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. WTF? 2012 Coleman, Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a psychotic disorder. People who have it can’t tell what’s real from what is imagined. It took you that long to look at the mirror -- or, look it up in the dictionary? lol

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Ouch YS1. You better take something for your aches and pains because you just got body slammed with facts. :B You and @ShinerBock made me laugh -- spilled my coffee on my keyboard. No wonder Shiner gets offended when I said he is deficient in understanding. Seems you are following his footsteps. Do you both even understand the Shiner's premise? Or, the logical flow of the topic he opened up? Let me spell it to you two: It's that Amazon doesn't pay income tax at all. And that's true. But the good 'ol Shiner had to drag Apple among those not paying taxes. Which even his own post confirms they are -- and the biggest tax payer in the word. If they are cheating in their taxes, you both should be happy about it since your party demigod (I assume you are with the party having slammed the other), who said that "he is a stable genius for having avoided paying taxes" and thus still won't release his tax returns. And why would you even slam Apple for giving more contributions to the dems? They both have the same values and goals -- education, hi-tech and highly educated engineers, knowledge based economy and making the US the leading technological global innovator? Please don't follow through, I need to hold my breakfast. Now, how are your posts related to Ford, GM, Rivian, Tesla EV trucks again? Uhm, they are cheating on their taxes hence the fines from EU, France, and soon to be US for laundering money overseas to avoid paying taxes and/or receiving illegal tax breaks..... And the reason why I posted what political party they give to is because the stance of said political party is that companies need to pay their fair share of taxes. It is kind of ironic that they say that, but are willing to taking money from a company that doesn't and tries to find every loophole they can (even illegal) to not pay said fare share of taxes. That very same political party cries about the treatment of people from other counties, yet don't mind buying products from or getting political money from companies that own sweatshops with high suicide rates due to working conditions. You might want to start a new thread on that. I don't know where because it's neither here nor there about EVs nor about RVing. And I believe it's against rules to discuss politics around here. I know, I know, it's a lonely world out there with nothing else to do and you're left with whining, ranting, hate mongering and splitting hairs.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

... gibberish of epic proportions. .. Of course that complex topic will be gibberish for someone who don't even know the simple matter of the difference between a company not paying income taxes and a company who is the highest taxpayer in the world. No wonder they have nothing to add on the more complex subject of high technology EV but the heckling and thread-killer inanities. Back to sane discussions on Ford, GM, Tesla and Rivian and who'll likely come up with the best EV pick up for our towing needs and if we decide for a replacement.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Still bringing nothing on the table of substance but a heckle? Cricket? Uhhhhhhhhhhhh..............................Yep. BTW, why are you still not arguing with SB about taxes? LOL. Ok but do you want to explain to him and to yourself first the difference between not paying income tax (Amazon) and being the biggest taxpayer in the world (Apple)?

ROFLMAO at this one. Yosemite Sam is evidently comparing Macintosh Apples to Horse Apples. Still bringing nothing on the table of substance but a heckle? You know this is called a forum -- you know where info, ideas. news and views are exchanged. Anything about Ford, GM, Tesla, Rivian... EV vs ICE trucks? Cricket?

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

When Shiner wants to make a point he links articles to make his point. Almost a dozen in this case. He body slammed you with facts. You are black and blue with facts! When you "try" to make a point you just type words and expect everybody to believe you. Kind of like a kid that sticks his fingers in his ears and says la, la,la,la............... If you want people to believe you please link up some facts like Shiner does. Other that that, you are just typing words. As far as electric stuff goes, when is Tesla going to come out with the Semi? Tusk said this year, then he move the goal post and said next year. What do you say? When is that Semi coming out YS? BTW, when is the #1 electric car company going to make money? Is it going to be this qt like Tusk said it was? Do you believe him YS? If so, lets bet. Lets say $100 bucks just between you and me! Money raise soon! :B Yeah, yeah, when caught with the pants down, change subject to semis. Put money bet to make it look serious. Nice strategy! Are you and Shiner brother, or uncle? Facts alone don't make arguments. It should be in support of a premise. Shiner premise is Apple, like Amazon, don't pay income taxes. Wrong, they are paying. His link even support that. Capiche! Before I answer your question on the semis, let me put it to you this way. I don't care when Musk will release the semis. I don't care, I'm not planning to buy one though some here might be dreaming of Tesla RV on semi-platform or dream-hauling operation billing mileage while taking a nap. And again, let me put this out first. Do you understand what (1) "unveiling", (2) "prototyping", (3) "test runs", (4) "full production" and (5) commercial release/sale mean? Because 1 & 2 are done. Tesla is doing 3 (see link), 4 is slated for 2020 and 5 thereafter. Happy now? Tesla Semi Test Exceed Expectations with 75,000 lbs load.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Amazon and Ford (in partnership with GM?) are investing into Rivian. I hope they can come up with a pick up that can compete toe-to-toe with Tesla. Amazon's technology will be a big boost to them. I just don't know about battery technology with the industry saying Tesla is decades ahead. Musk needs to eat some humble pie. Every time he opens his mouth, my portfolio gets a haircut. GM did not invest- Fact Industry says Tesla is decades ahead - Do you really agree to that? You think that it will take everybody else more than 10 (or 20 since it is plural) years to have the comparable battery technology? Your investments show in every post you make. Things don't just get true because you say so! Where do you people live that even internet news don't reach you in time?:E:h:S:D;) GM and Amazon Invest in Rivian

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Yeah, and add Apple to that list which is another company who gives considerably more to left politicians every year versus the right. Told yah to research and find the truth first before you open your trap. Apples has been faithfully paying income taxes not just here in the US but wherever country they operate. In fact (which you say you just met), Apple is the biggest taxpayer in the world.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

And for those who kept on insisting why it's on Tow Vehicle forum, the discussion is whether our next tow truck will be a Ford, GM, Tesla or Rivian EV pick up.All vaporware at this point but from what I know I will take the Rivian. Amazon and Ford (in partnership with GM?) are investing into Rivian. I hope they can come up with a pick up that can compete toe-to-toe with Tesla. Amazon's technology will be a big boost to them. I just don't know about battery technology with the industry saying Tesla is decades ahead. Musk needs to eat some humble pie. Every time he opens his mouth, my portfolio gets a haircut.

RE: Will fifth wheel front hit truck back window?

I think I would certainly find out. Go out into a large parking lot and slowly start making tighter and tighter turns while keeping a close eye on the front cap of your fifth wheel. You will then know for sure. You will know by that ugly crunching sound.;):E
