Have you considered investing in an EV? Do the vehicles showcased here have features that appeal to you? If not, what should manufacturers do to earn your purchase?

I have considered in getting an EV, specifically the Rivian R1S. What attracts me to it more than any other is, as it's stands now, the possibility to sit 7 adult passengers according to Rivian and other EV influencer's. I'm skeptical about their promises because of the reputation that most EV manufacturers promise at the beginning of their mass production journey. My hesitation in adding myself to their queue is the entry to "play" -$1000 for a deposit- and the promises in repairability. The repairability issue is much bigger than they predict and if mass orders and newer design mod's are made I can't imagine them keeping their promises of servicing THEIR EV at an "owner's" home.

In 1900 of all cars in the USA 38% were powered by electric motors. Now it is 1,9%.

I think that ev charging station should add a federal tax for every amp or watt pending on how it is decided to charge your vehicle. I also believe home charging stations should have a current meter and a monthly tax should be charged.

Price on fuel: Gas vs Electric? Here in Norway a friend of mine who commute about 50 miles every day with an EV, pays about $40 a month for the charging. Had he used a gas car I guess the price would have been $200-250 a month. How is that in the US?

Apart from the Bolt they're all so... BIG. Much nicer to have a small EV for around-town use. Most of us live in cities or the suburbs and that fraction is only getting larger. I guess we'll never get over car as fashion statement. M3 is also quite small and it seems to get regular updates, so that's still quite attractive. I wish ID.3 were coming to the US, thank dog I own an e-Golf that will covers almost all our driving needs.

My next vehicle will probably be my last gasoline vehicle. My current lease is up in November and unless the prices for EV are dropping, I cannot afford one. P.S. I drive a 2019 Kona and love their EV version but I cannot afford the price increase and I'm only driving about 6000 miles/year! Maybe my 2025 vehicle will be an EV because there won't be any gasoline cars made by then.

It seems like lots of automakers are betting that relatively affluent people (or families) will buy mid-size SUVs instead of sedans or sports cars. I'm curious if there will be a wave of relatively cheap sedan (like the Honda Accord or Toyota Corolla) EVs in the coming years if these are successful.

The number one that IMO that these companies need to make sure is solved is charging. I should be able to charge at any companies station, just like you do with gas, and just like you do with charging your other electronics. (i.e. USB C but for cars)

Companies need to start working on affordable and basic EV's for the next decades new drivers; or come up with rental/subscribtion contracts similar to how we rent/subscribe to our phones.

Where does the electricity to charge these cars come from? Can the power grid supply enough to charge more cars? What happens to the batteries when they go bad, where do they go? The world is not advanced enough for electric vehicles (yet).

Could you do a video on EV drive trains and the possible future of them. The Aptera is using hub motors which are way simpler as they have no drive shafts or gears. Just a powered hub. I love the simplicity of the idea but I'm not able to find much basic information on their real world performance. I'm not sure why they are not more common as they seem like a slam dunk to me- I'm maybe missing something? Or perhaps they are too new on the scene for large vehicles and there isn't much info yet? I'm new to the subject of EV's and I appreciate your video on them.
Kirk Johnson
Kirk Johnson 2 महिन्यांपूर्वी
I'm dissapointed that you didn't mention the Aptera. Perhaps you didn't include it as it is not yet in production but is expected to roll the first ones out later this year. Maybe you could do a whole video on the Aptera? I think they are extremely interesting and rather unique in the EV world. For sure anyone interested in EV's would be interested in them I think.
