Chevy exits ICE engines

Hopefully the other manufacturers won't follow suit.

Being from Texas and starting to thaw out from our latest freeze of the century, I don't see how our current power grid can support all the new EV planned for in the future, but I don't recall anything ever being addressed on this subject.

Not sure where people think more than half the electicity comes from? Whatever fuel isn't used for ICE will be used to make electicity.

Future power generation for EV's will be accomplished by converting Unicorn Farts into electricity by reverse osmosis and wishful thinking. That and some help from this knucklehead.

You guys are focusing on the wrong thing. This is not about AOC or the new green deal. Tesla has shown that EV's are for real and that the ICE is obsolete.
EV's have left the drawing board and are in full production as we speak.
The idea that we can't produce enough electric is silly.
When the model T was originally made did we say this would never work because there were no gas stations?
We have made it from the stage coach to jumbo jets the infrastructure will come.
Going from gas stations to charging stations is not an impossible task.
If you want to believe EV's are for real. Drive a Tesla.
Driving a Tesla for the first time is a game changing experience.
Once you drive a Tesla you will understand where all this is going and why the ICE is obsolete.

I wonder how earthmovers, or other very large construction machines will be adapted to work on battery, how many hours will the operate and just as important how long will it take to recharge them, especially out in the middle of Nebraska. EVs are the future for personal transportation, but the need for ICE’s is here for a long time.

If they don’t have battery that will last any longer and charge in 10-20 minutes the highways are going to be one big cluster.

Fifteen years is a long time in the technology world. EV's will become more popular as time passes. The biggest problem I see is the lack of electric generation. With strict federal and state regulation it take years to permit and build new generating plants, regardless of how they are powered. Nuclear is a no brainer, but the greenies will fight them to the death. It's easy to say "no more IC engines", but more electric generation is going to be needed.

EV's are not the issue
Fuel not consumed by ICE being utilized for electric generation is not the issue


TRANSMISSION of energy IS the MAIN Issue

That and NIMBY


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I don't know, but I don't think the subject is earthmovers.
