FORD has designed the new Transit to be all Electric. Wow yiu have to believe in the next 2-3 years the true Electric vehicle supply is here. Ford has the Mach E being delivered next month which I think Ford is going to be the initial dominant player for awhile. The all electric Ford truck is 2022 I believe as well. The times of change are for sure here.

Have you guys checked to see how much it costs to remove a worn out wind mill ( 25K+) after it dies in ten years? Some states are cryng at the expense to remove them and going back to natural gas.

The biggest issue for the electric pickup trucks is towing range, it just isn't there yet. I don't know how or when they will be able to improve that.

So what happens when this fails to catch on? Company goes bankrupt or they force us to buy this nonsense??? Totally lacking economic viability more than anything else....total joke! I don't think the grid seems to think this is happening either....no major capex for capacity expansion going on...

Average age of a car on the road is something like 12 years old.

2035 + 12 = 2042. I will be 62 and probably one of the last few to jump on the EV bandwagon unless it wows me.

I will say, GM is offering a crate EV drive train. They put one in a K blazer that was supposed to be for SEMA. There is a cool factor to it. But it robs me of the mechanical of the engine. Im sure i will do a hot rod EV in my life. Just not interested in it right now

Thinking of repowering my 72 Scout II. This E-Crate isn't super powerful but its more than the truck makes now. Not liking the battery placement though, took up the entire bed of the K5. Eh, I'll probably go with LS something but by time I actually get around to doing a swap who knows what might be available. I would like to be able to do tank turns...
