GM says it will produce electric Chevrolet Corvettes (cnbc.com)
This seems like a good idea but is it

Folks that drive Corvettes dont really care about saving by use of electricity over gasoline

Just kinda feels like when coke came out with "new coke"

we'll see

The first will be a hybrid, with something like 1000 hp and AWD.  Down the line we'd see a pure EV.  Bear in mind an EV often has considerable acceleration.

US electric car sales jumped to an impressive record high last quarter - Electrek

Electric car sales in the United States jumped to a record high of over 200,000 vehicles during the last quarter (Q1 2022).
It’s a good sign, but the US EV market is still extremely reliant on Tesla and California.

The United States is trailing far behind Europe and China when it comes to electrifying its passenger car market. There are many factors at play, including weaker incentives and a preference for pickup trucks, which is a segment that is just now being electrified.
But, we are starting to see a significant increase in EV adoption over the last year, and this last quarter was particularly important for EV adoption in the United States.
Using data from the California Energy Commission (CEC) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Veloz published a new report on EV sales in the United States that shows a record number (over 208,000) of electric vehicles delivered in the country during Q1 2022.

GM/Ford/Chrysler have done nothing to make a dent in EV sales in the US. It's literally all Tesla. Which is why it's weird af to me that Biden didn't invite Musk or Tesla to his most recent EV summit at the White House- and why he keeps praising GM for all their work on EV's. GM sold like 25 EV's last quarter. Tesla? 200,000. Tesla is manufactuing over 1 million EV's a year now. GM? In the few thousands or maybe even 10,000 at best. Actually, it's not that weird come to think of it, Biden is a f**king senile old brain dead moron.

It is not literally all Tesla, 70% is not 100%.  Literally.

And that percentage of EVs sold is headed down for obvious reasons.

I was talking about US auto makers, you know, the "Big 3" - and yeah, as far as that goes, it basically literally is just f**king Tesla grandpa. Ford has 2% and change of EV market share and GM has 7% and change. Chrysler has a whopping 0%.
 
Oh gee, just 70%! Their next closest EV competitor is Nissan- who has a whopping 8.5% market share of EVs in US. Volkswagen, Hyuandi, Audi, Porsche, Kia, BMW, Mercedes, Lucid, Smart, Jaguar, Volvo, Polestar, Mini, Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Mazada, Lucid, and couple other foreign companies, all have very small EV US market share but combined it adds up- you're talking about 20 different brands/companies which have around 12+% marketshare combined. Nissan- a Japanese company has 8.5%. That's 20.5+% percent. Tesla has 70%.

That leaves the "Big 3" auto makers with a whopping 9.5% combined to split amongst each other. Yeah, so as far as US auto makers go, it's still pretty much just f**king Tesla. They are manufacturing 1 million EV's a year. GM, Ford, and Chrysler combined don't even manufacture a tenth of that.

Do you understand the word "literally" and what that means?

How about "hyperbole"?

The Electric Vehicle Scam
Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris | Jan 15, 2022 | Climate Change, Feature 1, Lifestyle, Politics
The utility companies have thus far had little to say about the alarming cost projections to operate electric vehicles (EVs) or the increased rates that they will be required to charge their customers. It is not just the total amount of electricity required, but the transmission lines and fast charging capacity that must be built at existing filling stations. Neither wind nor solar can support any of it. Electric vehicles will never become the mainstream of transportation!
In part 1 of our exposé on the problems with electric vehicles (EVs), we showed that they were too expensive, too unreliable, rely on materials mined in China and other unfriendly countries, and require more electricity than the nation can afford.  In this second part, we address other factors that will make any sensible reader avoid EVs like the plague.
EV Charging Insanity
In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. No one likely thinks about the fact that it can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?

If we read that literally, it's ridiculous.

heckuva lot more Teslas in the Denver area driving through last week

I saw more Teslas in a 20 minute drive thru Denver on I-76, I-70 than I do in 20 weeks in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota

must be a big city thing, not a rural thing

It is an urban thing, clearly.  We have chargers all over the place here now.  But outside the metro?  It gets sketchy.
