EV Home Charging Not Practical in Most the World – Detroit Auto Show 2022

September 16th, 2022 at 2:48pm

Carlos Tavares, the CEO of Stellantis, says when it comes to transitioning to EVs, we’ve done it all backwards. He says we should have first made sure the grid carries clean energy and that the charging infrastructure was in place. He says home charging is a solution that’s specific to the U.S. market, and he worries about the affordability of EVs.

    Carlos is a walking excuse for no change. First, all energy needs to be clean. Like gasoline is a clean fuel? Then we need a bazillion times the number of charging stations because charging takes longer than filling your gas tank. Only then does he want to produce EVs.

    What planet is this guy on? What brain dead board will support this stinking thinking? This level of incredible ignorance only comes around once a generation.

    I think Carlos is dead on. Its the idiots that think pushing a product to market without a proper charging infrastructure is the way to go. Not to mention generating our electric using coal. We seriously risk damaging this EV market by pushing a product that is more expensive and less convenient before its ready. Let the market determine the take rate so that people except it as the infrastructure develops. By banning ICE too early people will just hold onto their old ICE and new car sales will crash.
    Anyone that thinks banning ICE without providing a good charging network for EVs are the ones that are brain dead.
