You just try telling any of this to the cult of smug, insufferable Tesla Worshippers / Elon devotees who seem to spend every waking minute of every day...(sometimes multiple times a day)...making YouTube videos constantly proclaiming the death of the traditional automotive industry...and that the only legitimate / worthwhile player left will be...of course...Tesla.I hate to be a wet blanket, but 2020 will be a bad year for plugin vehicles. The pandemic has delayed some new model introductions, and has also caused supplier issues. There have been reports of vehicle fires while fast charging some of the recently introduced models. Ford's PHEV Escape was postponed until the 2021 model year because of this. I don't know if it will delay the electric Mustang crossover. The battery electrics of other brands are having problems as well.
This isn't a putdown of electric vehicle technology, it is just a time of stepping back after the tech has moved so far forward.
I don't know why I let myself get sucked into watching these videos. When I do...I just wish I could SCREAM...and SCREAM...and SCREAM!!!
