    I got a Bolt as an experiment. Now I would never be without one. Starting every day with a full charge on my daily driver means I could care less about range. I will have an EV Pickup as soon as I can get one. It requires changing everything you have grown up with. Once you have an EV, you don’t want to go back to ICE.

    GM has no hybrids with the exception of upcoming Corvette E-Ray. Not a mass market/family car.

    Since very little renewable energy is generated at night, the idea that everyone will charge at night has to change.

    When you get an EV the interest/need/desire to get solar increases. This is part of the answer to will the grid support more EVs. Eventually most home will have solar as the price electricity goes up with the transition to renewables. In California (37% renewable) electricity cost 2 and half times what most of the US is paying.

  4. Richard Hinkel Says:

    I agree inexpensive electric cars are needed for the country to reach the mass consumer so we less reliant on oil. One thing brought out in todays show is that Matt bought his car over 6 years. I feel people purchase an electric vehicle won’t be buying another one when new styling or models are introduced. Those days I feel are gone because of cost vs spendable income so people are willing to spend more up front. Car people talk alot PerCentage of electric cars being sold by manufacture, doesn’t mean a thing. It is profits that are generated per car. I would rather have 15% of the Market and generate more than the company who has 40%. Customer loyalty per brand #1.

  5. Michael Fallquist Says:

    This goes to show that while EVs may seem intimidating to those that are outside of the know, affordable options do exist. It’s a simple matter of having knowledge about the topic and using it to make informed decisions as a consumer.
