          How is this any different than buying a car without that feature? To install a feature later, one vehicle requires a trip to the dealer for purchase and associated labor fees, the other can be purchased on your phone and be installed in your vehicle the next time you drive it. Which is the better experience?

        My current truck can be updated through wi-fi. My previous car could be updated with an SD card or flash drive. Neither would decide to install an update on its own or disable the vehicle while in progress like Teslas do either.

          But do those vehicles have updates that are as widely integrated as they are in a Tesla? Whereas some cars might let you update the maps or UI, Teslas can update entire safety systems, so it makes sense why they wouldn't want you driving while that's happening.

        It's an equal comparison because the energy is made in a power plant by burning gas / coal, natural gas is from the same refining and extracting as gasoline.

            If you look at a first gen B58 block, the timing chain end actually quite a bit wider and it would be heavier.
            For the B58TU they did not only move the timing chain to the front but they were able to simplify timing components.
            I guess you’re too moronic to comprehend that.

            Because they also changed to a new chassis so that may have changed weight distribution constraints again.

            Its to move the cam gears to the back of the motor so the hood line (which must be 3 inches from the nearest metal engine component) can be steeper. Audi started doing this first as their engines were so far forward the regulation would've absolutely fricked up the hood design.

            Also the reason they went to plastic valve covers imo (also cheaper)

      That is not a lithium mine.

      But mines have learned that they can extract lithium from the spoil to make more money.
      Using modern extraction techniques a single mine can supply enough to supply about half of EVs annually, and that is making the price crash again.
      Lithium is not rare, it just wasn't in much demand previously, companies literally threw it away.

      Also lithium may not be important much longer. Sodium batteries are the new big thing.

    Electric is 100x more complex outside of appearance. People 100 years ago - basically cavemen - were working on and building ICEs in their barn. You need several degrees to safely build an electric motor and its batteries. Every material is also more dangerous, more toxic, more exotic (i.e. expensive) than steel and oil.
    Anyway, I agree with you, OP.

            evs are still a pretty low percentage of total sales, and new sales are a pretty low percentage of the whole vehicle fleet.
            it will take a long, LONG time for full ev saturation to occur, even under ideal circumstances.

            all i was saying is that in practical terms, most people can get away with an ev right now.
            whether they are due for a new car, or can even afford a new car, let alone an ev, is a different consideration. oh, or whether they might be disinclined to go ev for political/cultural reasons.

            i very sincerely doubt that.

            i personally dislike EVs, but that's because of all the touchscreen homosexualry and drm stuff. i doubt there's too many people who think the same way. you know, among normies.

            also, while i definitely like the ideal of a manual ICE for a weekend car for fun drives, i have nothing against EV tech for a daily driver. im sure lots of petrolheads are like me.

            im also sure there's a lot of people who would love an EV, even with all the homosexualry, but just can't afford it. partly because evs are still more expensive than equivalent ICE cars, but mostly because EVs are new, and not many used ones are around, and most people buy used, not new. either way, it comes down to price.

            and finally, i think there's even more people who might be able to afford the purchase price for a base model 3 (or a used one), but they live in apartments, and therefore can't charge it easily/cheaply. this eliminates a big part of the savings in running costs, and it also means you have to waste time every week at a charging station, and who wants that, lol.

            imo its those last 2 issues, the higher prices and the inability to charge at home, that are the main blockers of further ev adoption.

      >EV's just need a power outlet.
      "renewables" are not clean. solar panels become toxic waste after their short 25 year life span and the rare earth materials used to make them are extremely difficult to extract from them.
      wind turbines take up a lot of room for the small amount of power they generate. They kill thousands of birds, vibrate the ground displacing small animals and similarly have a short life span for the massive fiberglass blades that cannot be recycled.
      Wherever that power is generated from has to be extremely clean because EVs use a ton of it.
      >dozen or so toxic liquids to be added routinely
      Apart from motor oil nothing else needs to be added "routinely", you're being stupidly dramatic.

      Typical EV batteries aren't simple. To make them efficient you need a bajillion little battery cells and each one needs to be monitored and regulated so they stay synchronized. Then you have to keep the whole thing temperature controlled and that's a pain in the ass itself that needs MORE sensors and electronic shit.
      The alternative is doing it like they did back in the 70's and 80's with slapping a huge brick of car batteries into something to get only dogshit two-digit mile range.
