      Always loved the looks of the first gen Volt. Would absolutely get first-gen Volt with the Bolt's BEV powertrain...that would have made a solid competitor for the Tesla Model 3. Really dislike the...

      Absolutely true, but keep in mind Fremont was not a clean paper design, it was a legacy ICE plant they got for cheap. I think they make it work, but it is far from ideal, and Shanghai, Berlin and...

      Thanks for clarifying Dave, i started in on my post and then saw your follow-up to a similar reply with indications you have personal dealing with Elon that make you hostile to him, not merely based...

      So if we are going to judge companies by their founders then you are fine with Ferdinand Porsche's active support of the Third Reich and membership in the Nazi Party, his use of POW labor in his...

      You have a M3 RWD? Can you talk about how it accelerates on the highway compared to the dual motors? Sounds like RWD is significantly lighter, so i was thinking it might be more enjoyable over the...

      Came across a CT4-V in black yesterday while going home - absolutely lovely exterior. Shame GM didn't spec a different turbo to liven up the engine and make it a relative screamer considering it has...

      If keeping long term (you said 8-10 years) go new.

      Also the based on availability is a concern with no guarantees as to what you can get. Might end up stuck in something due to lack of availability.

      Because cars are an aspirational and desirable product, and have to be that to be attractive to people. It's the key that people like Bob Lutz expound (in his great book Car Guys v. Bean Counters)...

      I have a small lot (0.4 acres) and have used an electric mower for well over a decade. Originally it was a corded Black and Decker. The cord was a total PITA but i still loved how quiet and instant...

      Very cool to see. Unless the OP was joking, a Model 3 Performance should be dynamically better than a Y (or any CUV) - and presumably the suspension setup on the modified Y would work on a 3 (just...

      I don't understand, if your wife has a Bolt now, why not give it to your child when it's time to drive? You know BEVs last very long time and GM basically has no maintenance on Bolts up till 150,000...

      I am guessing that Nikola may have presented GM a way to get a BEV division w/o creating one and spinning off it's BEV bits as many people are demanding. Ford with Rivian, GM with Nikola while both...

      You gotta assume he will get into an accident or two. Based on that take into account cost of repair and insurance rates.

      I think an ideal situation would be to get a Bolt if BEV is a must;...

      Agreed. If anything all the wealthy pro-EV's are probably sick of all showing up in the same Model S's. The mark of a real BEV company is the ability to mass produce hundreds of thousands of...

      Agreed, especially the Explorer Sport models - they scream LEO variant from a distance.
