    I can get a Kia Rio for $20k (which has a greater range than any EV on the market). Where are the $20k EV's?

      >which has a greater range than any EV on the market
      The Kia Rio is EPA rated at 27mpg (1250Wh/mi) and has a 11.9 gallon (400kWh) fuel tank. That is only 325 miles of EPA rated range. EPA ratings are also usually really optimistic so its doubtful it would actually go that far between needing to fuel up.
      Even in bad weather the new 150kWh EVs from companies like NIO will do more than that on the highway, and in good weather they'll do 600+ miles real-world. EPA combined on them will probably be something like 700 or 800 miles combined test cycle.
      A lower-tier brand was going to sell cars with the new NIO batteries for under $40k. Just completely shaming the rest of the industry still offering 60 or 70kWh as the max.

      >Where are the $20k EV's?
      There are $10k EVs on sale now.

      Blame US car dealers that want to make the only new option buying a $70k truck that does 15mpg in the real world for there being no cheap efficient cars. If dealers don't put the order in to the factory to have them on the lot, companies don't offer them in the US.
      I see more people all the time in the US side-stepping car dealers local monopolies entirely driving side by sides, and golf carts.
      Its crazy, the Dealer monopolies need to be broken. The US is falling so far behind because of their stranglehold on the market for anything that is a 'car'.

            Sure, but counterpoint: most of those heavily depreciated because achiles heel part failures are well known and well documented.

            Subaru's for example are known to have horrendous head gasket problems at about 150k miles, and a 200k mile car should just have it done even if it still runs and drives. But a couple weekends in the garage anyone with some basic tools can fix it.

            NOBODY can repair a battery pack on their own. You cannot "rebuild" an electric motor. A central touchscreen infotainment system is non-repairable. Thats the difference between depreciated ICE vehicles; you can save thousands or more just doing the work yourself. You simply cannot do any work on an EV.

            Sure, just like those engines shouldn't have been made with 10 timing chains on the back. But you cannot legislate or force a company to engineer something to be "easy" to repair. That again supports why ultra luxury vehicles depreciate so fast. They're impossible to work on because they know the buyers of those vehicles never will and also won't own them when parts do start breaking.

            Take the skateboard design they've all gone to. You'd have to design that entire tray to be user serviceable with 440 or 800 volts still in it, engineer connectors to theoretically never go bad, individual cells or clusters of cells for modularity to connect and keep working, on and on. Like I said before, it is possible to disassemble and repair a prius battery, but nobody does it because who's going to spend $2000 on parts, $500 on special tools, then roll the dice they don't electrocute themselves and it actually fixes the problem. When you start trading off for user-serviceability, you're going to lose capacity and increase the cost of it all making the initial problem compounding.

            You could actually. It wouldn't be that difficult. Just like how in the past upper management at some companies, or military contracts have dictated things like maximum number of man-hours for various tasks, or limited the tools that are needed in order to reduce complexity and costs.

            Lemon laws in many states already set a sort of minimum standard for this, and stronger Right to Repair laws could strengthen them.

            Obviously there is nothing that can be done about old cars, or about every vehicle out there but it would in fact be possible to create repair category certifications that manufacturers could attempt to meet. Companies that could meet those requirements could advertise their cars as compliant. Companies found to have cheated on the certification could have that revoked and have legal action taken against them.

            Even if this was implemented simply as a requirement for Government purchased vehicles, they are a major source of fleet sales, and there would be an incentive for manufacturers to comply even with vehicles produced for other customers.

            If you think that, it means you have no idea how the world, cars, or the government works let alone how or why engineers decide to do whacky shit. Legislation rarely soves problems for consumers, and a board strokes "just make it affordable lol" legislation always makes things worse. See: affordable care act. Just make healthcare cheaper and available for everyone lol. 400% healthcare spikes. Thanks, government. Really lookin out for the little people on that one.

            Seems like it is working well enough. Mitt Romney's plan adopted by Obama required healthcare providers to actually meet a minimum standard of healthcare and now instead of the old status quo of driving people into the emergency room with even higher costs, the up front cost is a bit higher. Perhaps it hurt some people in states that refused the Medicaid Expansion, but that is on the State Government. Really when has the Republican party, the party of big industry looked out for the little guy? Rejecting medicaid expansion was par for the course even when it was their own Presidential nominee's plan.
            Still not as good as Medicare for All for you kids, but maybe we will get there.

            I'm not proposing a 'just make things affordable lol' legislation. Rather a certification, possibly simply for Government purchases that vehicles must meet in order to display a bullet point on the window sticker.
            Seems easy enough doesn't it? Perhaps the certification could include things like allowed tools, time for certain maintenance tasks, and a measure of expected costs over a period of time.
            If a Dealer were to attempt to screw a car owner over by quoting absurd costs on a vehicle with that certification, the owner could be given legal recourse that might encourage car makers to take action against crooked dealers.

            What's the alternative, simply allow major car manufacturers to have no oversight at all?

          Actual battery replacement cost? I was thinking that the unknown date of failure and eventual battery replacement would effectively force you to buy a new vehicle anyhow. Meanwhile you could run an ICE longer and is generally cheap to replace relative to new car market.

            Yeah, depends how new or how popular the EV itself is. Toyota Prius battery from Toyota is $6000 installed. An aftermarket battery is about $4000. And a specialized mechanic in taking them apart can usually fix them for $1500-2500 rebuilding the bad cells only.

            Tesla's are famously totaled out by insurance when there is any battery pack damage because a new one from Tesla (only place to get one) is like $21,000 for the 'part' alone. I think there was a hyundai or something that wanted $60,000 for full replacement as backed up by 2 separate dealership quotes for 2 different people.

            I think a few other EV makers have list prices for replacement battery packs for insurance, repairs, etc and they're all like 50% the total sale price of the car. Its the specific reason why EVs depreciate like crazy. A 10 year old 100k mile ICE car can probably go another 100k miles if you do general maintenance to it. A 10 year old 100k mile EV is probably 20-50k miles before the battery won't let the car move again. Theres your value analysis as to why used EVs are so cheap and nobody wants them.

            I'll also add, back in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and arguably 90s when a car got to 100k miles, it was generally considered scrap because (US vehicles predominantly) just could not go past 100k miles without rebuilding/replacing an engine, transmission, and interior being well-worn out. You'd have to put as much into a used car to make it last (or continue driving) as it cost to just buy a new one. THAT is why boomers will celebrate the sale of their shitbox with titles like
            >26,000 ORIGINAL miles

            The only chance you had at those vehicles lasting were to baby them like a fabrige egg or park them in a barn for 50 years.

            Today we have women driving and not changing the oil for 60,000 miles and that car will still get them around. People refusing to wash their car and the clear coat still exists. Or minivans with 4 kids at 200k miles and the cloth on the seats isn't ripped away.

            Kinda always has been; usually its stupid people thinking they dont' want to spend $3000 replacing a transmission on their $3000 shitbox because "the car isn't worth that much" so they'd rather go spend $30,000 on a new vehicle instead of repairing the old one. Its the unexpected shit that makes normies spend stupidly: yeah a $3000 repair on a $3000 car almost doesn't make sense because what if next month theres another $3000 repair necessary? Nobody wants that gut-punch twice in a row, so they generally opt for spending MUCH more and buying another used car or a brand new car.

            Somehow $750 per month in perpetuity is more palatable than possibly $5000 in 1 year, with the possibility of it happening next year too.

            There's a little more to it than that. It's just not smart or economical to drop a new troony into a rusted to frick high mileage $3k shitbox. If that shit gets totaled the next day they're going to give you $3k for it and not $6k. It also depends on you and your employer.

          the price doesn't include delivery and freight either which is necessary to buy any new vehicle so I didn't count it. out the door, you're looking at about $37k. Not saying its a terrible deal but that's far from the "SUB 30K ENTHUSIAST EV" that keeps being claimed. the 7500 point of sale rebate only applies to dealers that offer the service and are signed up with IRS Energy Credits Online platform. if you don't have a dealer close by that offers it, then extra cost can be incurred for shipping to your location.

            Rural places are the best for EVs because everyone can charge them on their own property whereas gas stations are few and far between and require multiple minute trips for many people. One person said since switching to an EV, charging has become way more convenient than driving to the closest gas station 20 minutes away. Suck it .

            How would I enjoy a car I hate? I don't need to own it to dislike it. I already dislike not only the car but also the company (Tesla) and the CEO (Elon Musk) and I would dislike them both still even if they force Elon out of Tesla. Tesla and EVs made me dislike Elon not the other way around, let me make that very clear for you. I didn't had anything against Elon until the US government started getting overzealous on their EV shenanigans. I hope that is clear enough because as of late it seems Elon is getting a lot of flak because according to these Boomers the thing wrong with Tesla's declining numbers is Elon and it's not. The problem with Tesla is EVs.

            Again, to pay at a public charger you end up paying between $0.80 and $1.50 per kilowatt hour versus AT HOME something between $0.08 and $0.40 per kw/h. The analogy is having a $2000 gas pump in your garage that lets you fill up your cars for $1 per gallon, yet you still go down to the kwik-e-mart to pay $8 per gallon because muh infrastructure.

            Current battery tech cannot allow for sub-5 minute recharges. Even super capacitors dont' charge that fast. Electrical engineers know there are simply physical and chemical limitations as to how fast a battery can safely charge. You're in that fantasy zone of wanting zero change in your habits despite never needing a 5-minute recharge on an EV. Then you'll claim you drive 600 miles a day round trip for normal commute, or you go visit someone a 30 hour drive away and recharges would simply add too much time. Or you drive far to visit family once a year while fully ignoring the MORE CONVENIENT charging at home overnight for significantly less cost than a public charger.

            The reason to switch to EVs is because something like 70% of drivers wouldn't use more than 50% of a charge for 90% of the year. Statistics dont' lie. The vast majority of drivers never need a 5-minute fillup. They never need greater than 400 mile ranges. Its just like the statistics that 80% of pickup truck owners never use that pickup truck to do pickup truck things. Why do they have it? Because muh trugg. Why are you resistant to EVs? Because muh fillups.

            I'll agree with you on that. Leave it to corporate morons to make something weird and quirky (ugly) for no reason other than "lets really make it stand out compared to normal cars!". The electric F150 I think came the closest to looking "normal". The funky headlights I think are a general styling choice so I can't even fault them that much since even chebbies look like ass on the front too.

            Battery tech currently is fricking amazin, but yeah they're just nowhere near where they should be because the average npc complaining about muh infrastructure and muh charge times don't have enough of a frontal cortex to plan for the future with them in mind. Should I check and charge my phone at night? Nah frick that, I'll just plug it in wherever I happen to go that day. Can't really have that mindset with an EV, yet people will still run out of gas in their car. Took a day trip yesterday and the ONLY traffic I ran into was because a tesla ran out of charge and the toll road operators had to come by with a generator and give him some juice.

            Confusingly though, you'd use them as a backup power source for your house? What happens if they just don't work when the power goes out for whatever reason?

            Let me clarify, I was speaking on batteries as a power source generally. Generally battery power is a back up source between lapses in primary sources of power delivery. To extend this statement to vehicles, I would not want battery power to be my primary source of power. I would buy a hybrid before I bought an EV.

            Maybe not full recharge, but with true pack capacity now hitting 600 miles of range, brands will be able to software lock to a more reliable 300 miles and start reporting the ability to hit 'full' at 300 miles of range (50% actual capacity) in 5 minutes.

            The newest sodium ion cells that can safely take or deliver over 30kW per kg, or 9MW for 300kg of cells, really would be able to charge in seconds. It would be an issue for all the other wiring in the car that can't handle that much power.

            The current production cells are similar to LFP which is on its way to becoming the most popular chemistry.
            These newest cells match NMC for cell density and have higher power density.

            >and they're just not as durable
            Compared to LFP, but LFP is ridiculous. Most cars don't need million mile batteries.

            >Not to mention they're horrifically expensive.
            Because they're brand new and companies are doing a lot of R&D and production ramp up.
            The whole point of sodium batteries is once that happens they can sell them for a profit at under $50 a kWh.
            Or about 1/3 what NMC cells cost. A few companies were saying they would hit $40 a kWh next year when they hit GWh scale.

            Might not completely kill LFP or NMC which might still have advantages, but lead acid could be gone soon.

            LFP is good for about 3000 cycles in the automotive portion of its lifespan.
            80kWh, 4 miles a kWh, 3000 cycles = 960k miles.
            Ok not quite a million miles but close.

            Even the older NMC cells are good for 350k miles or more.

      60% of total capacity, and only 40% of base load. Most of the total capacity is from methane, which at least when used locally and fugitive emissions are prevented has less environmental impact than coal.

      A lot of places in the country already get most of their peak from solar and wind, and most of their base load from nuclear or hydro-electric. For EVs that often come on to charge for only an hour a day, it isn't that difficult to manage which source a car is charging from. Much like how fast-charger infrastructure utilizes storage batteries to buy cheap green energy.
      Also keep in mind significant electricity goes into the extraction, refining, and distribution of gasoline. Whatever environmental impact you think putting 6kWh into a lightweight 5 mile a kWh EV has for 30 miles of driving, a Miata would have that 6kWh plus its emissions from burning gasoline, and some lightweight EVs can do 7 miles a kWh of more.

      No Miatas to Hummer EVs here. We have to compare Apples to Apples.

            Also we could just reprocess it and keep using it.

            >Also you need diesel back up generators
            Not anymore. Modern designs fail safely. Co-locating with solar and pumped hydro is a simpler solution.

            >Sacrifice their health to mitigate the disaster.
            As opposed to fossil fuels which require sacrificing your health even when it is working like it is supposed to.

    This will destroy the legacy automakers still trying to gain EV market share. Ford’s lighting is selling like shit and Chevy and Ram are afraid to release theirs.

    That was never the argument, funny enough, they're getting cheaper precisely because of other actual arguments that exist, like Li-Ion batteries being horrendous in outside environments, having your range reduced by 50 miles when you turn the hear or AC on etc.
