At some point natural selection will take over. Meaning, when EV's are practical from an operational, cost and sustainability standpoint, then they will naturally become a viable option for some, most or everyone. Until then, this is a show of the ignoramuses AFAIC. Let Cadillac, Dodge, whomever, go down this path.

I hate to sound ignorant, but EV's won't take over in my life time only because there are too many people like me (and alot of 'yous') that aren't giving up on ICE powered vehicles quite yet. Performance oriented folks aren't giving into an EV anytime soon. I know the argument - EV's are already faster than most other production cars. The big 'but' in that argument though is the price tag. Show me an EV that runs 10's for under $10K. For that matter find one that runs 10's for less than $50K. Now find on that runs 8's for less than $15k.

I'm confident that racers, hotrodders, etc. won't be hotrodding EV's on a budget for 20+ years. By that time it will be evident that we don't have the electric grid to support them in mass production.


Of course I could be wrong, as I sometimes am. But, while I'm waiting for end of the ICE age to occur, I'm stock piling LS's - and I'd gladly stockpile the new Hemi's if they were worth a sh*t at 200K miles and available for $250. The best thing Dodge can do is eliminate ICE - sounds sensible in FREAKIN' BIZARRO WORLD!!

Not having a electric grid capable of supporting everyone using EVs is a feature, not a bug.

Speaking of 'bugs', the same groups of people are advocating for insect protein to supplement and/or replace in part or whole the more traditional sources mainly being meat, but, also leapfrog past vegetable meat replacements

Anyone here ever have a slot car? What did you do to win races? You took the little electric motor apart and re-wound it to make more power. I am sure there are already hot-rodded electric motors in the works. Remember what they used to say in the '60s? Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

The LX platform is what, 17+ years old at this point? (IDK really if its still exactly the same platform, but it looks like it from here)

Time for a change if you ask me.

:popcorn:

But sure, tell me more about how a private multi-national company (not even based here) is trying to force you to do something bc of "ZOMGthe President" or whatever. Y'all are hilarious AF but no, bitching (unrelatedly) about how "the government is forcing us to do X, Y and Z bc I heard it on the news" doesn't belong here. You know this. Yet y'all keep trying.

Meh...Ford, ran the Panther platform for 33 years. Fox was around for 26.

I've just never been a huge fan of Mopars in general. Though a lot of their stuff has extremely dedicated fans. (i.e. Classic Mopars, Dodge trucks, Jeeps, current Charger/Challenger models)
