20K is a lot of money to most people - and just to get 400 miles range? 20K will buy a whole lot of gas, just sayin... I really wonder what the cost will be to replace batteries when they are out of warranty- another 20K? There are already guys blowing up their Teslas when they need a new battery pack. At some point it is just arithmetic.
I know there is a lot of money floating around in the upper income brackets since the fed dropped 5 trillion dollars into the economy but what is the market really going to be for 80-100K trucks, long term? I have a small business restoring vintage motorcycles so I always need a truck. Pretty sure my next truck will be a Maverick hybrid not a full size EV truck because 30, 20 or even 10K will buy a lot of gas.
How many cars can get 400 miles to the tank today? More importantly, how many people really need that kind of range when gas stations are as prevalent as they are today? Do you know anyone who has a 400 mile commute with no gas stations along the way?
What dome of the skeptics have to do is just watch the Hummers and see what they are doing as they have been extensively tested in the cold the last few years and we it should tell us what they will do. Same motors and batteries.
