Who is exporting the pollution to the countryside ?

The point is that Norway is proving that EV's can replace the ICE, which was being stated couldn't possibly happen.

Oh and ..

Norway's oil and gas exploration drops sharply, regulator says | Reuters
Power production is outside cities. Move the power plants in the cities to produce the power the cars consume and problem is the same.

Also Norway is a rich county. It has the means to subsidize electrics while also taxing gas engines. Most countries don’t have that ability. Why aren’t more countries like Norway? Money.

Like I said before, electrics cars can work once the economics get right. They will never be a viable solution when they cost more than ICE. As a reminder the car was out for a long time before it replaced the horse. We can thank Mr. Ford for getting the economics right.

That article did not have anything from Widmann that said the V8 is safe, just that the current ones are really powerful. Our problem will be getting gasoline in 15 yeats.
Like Mad Max if the current Southeast is any indicator.

We are years away from a 100% EV mandate, the infrastructure alone will take at best 10+ years to put into place.

The logical and realistic answer is a mixed approach of EV, hybrids, and ICE engines.

The biggest stumbling block in my state is how they are going to get the tax money out of the populace when people no longer use gasoline. They said they will figure that out first and then implement. It will probably be a drive by mile automatically billed. The tech exists.

The rest is just details...

To be fair many many ICE cars have done the same over the years. Do you not remember the Corvair ? That toasted plenty of people!
Don't forget about the Pontiac Fiero either. They used to like to ignite into flames randomly too lol.

That old chestnut gets rolled out all the time, usually by 'hopecasters'. Norway are managing it OK so it is possible to make it work if you plan ahead. The same was said about ICE cars in the 1800's - they will never replace the horse !
And for some, that’s still true.

Start being concerned when the F-150 stops having the V8 as an option.
Until then, it's a safe bet it'll continue to be in a Mustang, which I don't see ending for a good long while.

Regardless of the bumbles they make, they know the Mustang car 'formula' of RWD/V8.
(selling out the nameplate for an EV SU-whatever because they didn't think the Oval could sell it on its own. But that's besides the point).

He's not wrong though. They aren't doing them as a favor.
If people didn't buy them, they wouldn't make them.
Ah-Oh!

Not really. I'll use the mach-e as an example...

Extended range battery is 88 kwh.

In Ontario Canada where I live off peak rate is 8.5 cents Canadian per kwh.


88kwh x 8.5c/kwh = $7.48 CDN to fully charge from empty or $6.14 USD.

Much much cheaper than filling up with gasoline.

I could charge a mach-e from empty to full 9-10x for the price of one full tank of gas in my mustang.
