    Have you considered investing in an EV? Do the vehicles showcased here have features that appeal to you? If not, what should manufacturers do to earn your purchase?

      I've had a 2017 Chevy Bolt for about 18 months. I love it although now I'm work from home and don't commute. Still, when I was it was $15 a month for fuel and the first scheduled maintenance is at 150K miles, so much cheaper than the ever increasing repair costs of an ICE. I like all EV owners, never going back to ICE. We do have a Forester for our road trip exploring since it can go anywhere compared to a low to the ground hatchback.

    It seems like lots of automakers are betting that relatively affluent people (or families) will buy mid-size SUVs instead of sedans or sports cars. I'm curious if there will be a wave of relatively cheap sedan (like the Honda Accord or Toyota Corolla) EVs in the coming years if these are successful.

    The number one that IMO that these companies need to make sure is solved is charging. I should be able to charge at any companies station, just like you do with gas, and just like you do with charging your other electronics. (i.e. USB C but for cars)

    Where does the electricity to charge these cars come from? Can the power grid supply enough to charge more cars? What happens to the batteries when they go bad, where do they go? The world is not advanced enough for electric vehicles (yet).

    Could you do a video on EV drive trains and the possible future of them. The Aptera is using hub motors which are way simpler as they have no drive shafts or gears. Just a powered hub. I love the simplicity of the idea but I'm not able to find much basic information on their real world performance. I'm not sure why they are not more common as they seem like a slam dunk to me- I'm maybe missing something? Or perhaps they are too new on the scene for large vehicles and there isn't much info yet? I'm new to the subject of EV's and I appreciate your video on them.

    I'm dissapointed that you didn't mention the Aptera. Perhaps you didn't include it as it is not yet in production but is expected to roll the first ones out later this year. Maybe you could do a whole video on the Aptera? I think they are extremely interesting and rather unique in the EV world. For sure anyone interested in EV's would be interested in them I think.

    The electric car sounds good but they we will have dependence on electric. If we start driving millions on electric cars the electric grid system will have to be upgraded in parts of the country. Look at the parts of the country that are still without power now because of the storms. I understand electric is an alternative fuel source but it will probably cost billions to upgrade the existing electric grids which have not been upgraded for years and well as more underground power lines. What good is an electric car when there is a weak electric grid and we could be out of power for multiple days? You are stranded.

    • Miguel lopez

      It would require a 30% expansion for 250 million EVs, if these EVs had VTG you wouldn't have to worry as much as each car would be capable of back flowing into the grid and powering your home for a duration, tesla uses a proof of concept mega battery in Australia to prevent blackouts and brown outs all with huge savings, politicians in the US have gotten real good at making excuses not to upgrade our infrastructure such as, "it's too expensive" or "it cost too much" and my favorite "we dont have money for this!" When the wealthiest nation on earth fails to mend itself it will quickly become the second richest nation on earth, and you know who will take 1st? China, their electrical infastructure has rapidly expanded for a country with significantly less funding then our government. Power in Texas went out because people where using too much gas and there wasn't enough for the GAS powered plants, so it's not just gas infastructure, the Texas government management of its power failed and they blamed it on wind power.

    I don’t get Cybertruck haters. If you want pick up truck, then you want rugged. Cybertruck’s body is literally the sturdy chassis, not some aluminium body that dents all over in few years and it’s lighter. It’s literally the only pick-up that has some innovation to it. All the other EV pick ups are literally just heavier pick ups with less range and aren’t no different from any modern pick up we had for decades.
