Now where did I put that magic wand? There haven't been any significant advances in battery technologies in decades. And those miracle batteries aren't going to be enough, you need a way to recharge those batteries. And since California already has rolling blackouts because they can't handle their current electric needs that should work out fine.

What it will do is make you more reliant on the government. Anyone can drive down to the gas station and fill their tank but what do you do when the government-regulated electric utility tells you you've used up your fair allotment of electricity for the month?
You think petrochemicals arent regulated?

Personally, I think E.V.’s will be biggest flop since Edsel. They just don’t make sense to me...at least right now.
Gasoline engines didn't either at this stage in adoption. But the major OEM frenzy and governmental backing world wide is changing that equation very fast.

What interests me about this is dodge is seeking patents. Now I really want to see that. If they have a new angle.on this I'd be very interested to see.it. perhaps though it is only a minor change to existing art. But boy would it be nice if it was cutting edge new sheet of paper tech.

My understanding is the Government restrictions are getting so tight that the big fat cars with over 700hp come with lots of financial penalties

Can t meet new regulations based on the current ( old ) platform

It looks like based on announcements from Dodge there truly will be some overlap between our current and new. This gives everyone an option to evaluate new vrs old. Options aren’t always bad. Could be worse they could just keep it secret till it’s too late and your stuck waiting to see if new platform is right for you. Then your screwed if you don’t like it. At least one can order the last of what they like before the curtain closes. I think vette should have kept C7 and C8 with some sort of overlap. Why not the old platform paid for itself. More profit for them and make more people happy with the brand overall. .02
