Yo all jokes aside I sat in a Mach e like E4X or something 58k price as tested.. in all honesty the seats in that spec were the most plush comfy leather I’ve sat on in awhile I mean I like my Laguna leather but those seats were nice as well. The steering wheel is similar to our SRTs and I actually liked the sparse interior with some nice accents and a big touch screen. I approve of the Mach E 😂

Now driving it and living with it day to day might be a different story. I just found the interior was a lot nicer than most other cars in its segment. Surprisingly I found the Nissan SUV the pathfinder interior really nice as well.

I had a CMax back a few years ago, it could go 13 miles on a fully charged battery that took all nite to come to a full charge. I know technology has changed a bunch since then, but not happening at my house.

I am going to stick with the fossil fuel, myself. Where is all this power coming from?? Coal powered plants and nukes being moth balled. As David and the rest of the Fl crew knows,, we just lost one of best nuke plants in central Fl. I have run a lot of projects at Crystal River and if it wasn't for the 2 coal fired plants, plans to be mothed balled, there is going to be a huge problem. Transfer power from one region to another takes infrastructure that Duke Energy can not handle. 3 weeks ago we had a mild storm with 30 mph winds for 25 minutes. Power was out for 4 hours. Best thing for me to do at times like that. Is go to Apple Bees cause they are across the street from a hospital. Different grid. But, I don't have the financial backings to spend the next 3 years there.

Yes owning a Electric vehicle is a "Shock" 😂. But hell if you guys don't know me by now than you will never know me😁. I would never own a Electric vehicle as a primary vehicle for sure. Agree not practical but for me its all about the experiences and adding another vehicle to my 150 plus purchases in my lifetime. And I could sell her should I want to down the road and make 10K no lie. But for now I will be "Electrified" and my F-150 Lightning is due in later this year as well.

Good luck. The chances of that are about as great as your 22,000 DOW prediction. Sell it before you need to replace the battery with unobtainium.

Research nickel and balance of the rare earth metals required in that battery. Research just where the nickel in that battery pack in your pickup or that car originated from. Then talk to us about the battery materials and where they are mined currently. Then talk to us regarding where and how the power you want to recharge it is made, and where it comes from. Then talk to us about if enough power is even available after 6pm for you and any others to be charging it up.

Your falling for the GND. Have fun, I will stay with proven ICE cars. Current and past battery production pays war criminals, future battery production is not certain. Our electric system is simply not ready for any wide spread purchase of EV’s as much as the people who neighbor with you in DC want us to believe.

Working for the union at Big Bend Power house, I got moved up the street to a plant that makes these batteries and alot of acid prone and lead nasty devices. They just degenerate into a biproduct. If the coal emissions are that bad, what about the fall out of the land fills to bury and burn. More than likely these batteries will be coming from China and they don't give a rats ass of the fall out.

I almost bought an electric car back in 2016 when they first where coming out. I had a 45 mile drive to work everyday and they offered free charging. It would have been worth it. Charge there on friday drive around all weekend go back Monday and charge for free again. But I ended up leaving the company shortly after this.
If my my current employer offered something like that. I'd buy one no questions asked.
Will I buy one if it isn't for that? Heck no!

Totally rude and I’ll take back my real comment.

Yeh yeh loving the responses being what would you expect from the Ice Age ones 😂. And damn now getting personal by a select few. And now sadly the Mopar brand is truly the Electric Revolution next generation by the Stellantis owners.
