    everyone is reversing course because the Chink EV dumping is causing widespread government reversal on EV policies. Hybrids are the future and the death of ICE-only was greatly exaggerated

      Not only do you have a complicated tiny overstressed engines with a billion addons for emissions but you also have a tiny shitty battery and electric motors too.
      Manufacturers will love this, you get to pay for maintenance and repairs of two powerplants in one vehicle!

        have you seen modern hybrids? it is a big shitty battery and a okayish engine. as compared to just a big shitty battery or two big shitty batteries in BEVs.

        And when said hybrid battery shits the bed, it's a $2000 job to replace it and keep the car rolling instead of a $20000 job like a contemporary EV. Less if the hybrid's battery is designed to be easily recelled like a Prius'.

        Less required maintenance is only relevant if you're not going to be the one holding the bag when the big repairs come due, and at least at the moment, BEVs aren't as friendly for the sorts of owners that run their cars until they rot out from under them.

            this is what happens when EVs are (almost) tax-free while ICE cars are taxed to death. don't pretend Norway stats have any relation to the real world

            The taxes are the same for BEV, PHEV, and HEV.

            not in Norway, if there is a combustion engine in the car you pay +25% VAT on full purchase price, with pure EV you only pay VAT on price exceeding 500k NOK. Plus added taxes for co2 emissions and whatnot. also pure EVs have lower yearly road tax and toll road discounts up to 100%

            That's $50k vs $35k. That's a huge difference. And you conveniently ignored all the other tax incentives.

            35,000 * 1.25 = 43,000. That's a few thousand dollars is all it takes for the entire population to switch to EVs? Sorry, but that just throws all the anti EV arguments and complaints out the window.

            Yeah, that's it? Just a few grand is all it takes? It's not like the tax breaks change the price of ICEVs. They only affect EVs. So people aren't being forced out of ICEVs, but EVs are made more appealing

            And the tax breaks are mostly going away anyway.

            That's all though? Just a few grand? So since EVs keep dropping in price, that means everyone will switch to them as they become cheaper?

    Unironically excited to buy one assuming we get them in Burgerland. When rumors of this broke a few months ago it was funny to read all the comments from fuming EV warriors who probably weren’t going to buy one regardless. I want a cute compact for commuting and errands and the new Mini just rubs me the wrong way.
    I wonder about the drivetrain though - the 500e is a tough sell at $35k. If they make it a plug-in hybrid with a decent battery-only range I could see the price being about the same. But if they just embraced what made the 500 great in the first place and put an efficient three cylinder in without any fancy gay shit and keep the price down I bet they could do OK in the US. It’s a very different market than the last time they tried and there’s no competition in the subcompact space.

    The easiest way in the world to salvage it would be to cut the battery capacity in half and add an engine and gas tank for a range extender. Instantly goes from a joke 141 mile range to something between 300-400 depending on how big of a fuel tank they stuff in. Saves money for Stellantis to manufacture until battery prices come down, and still qualifies for EV tax incentives in most markets.

    Launching EREV models has also been popular among Chink BEV-focused automakers after they realized that even in China, there was a hard ceiling for how many people wanted to buy a pricey car that couldn't road trip.

      Good. It means that they know the money is always in big oil. I prefer them over paying range tax in a EV 80k car that will die in the coldest of winter and the hottest summer until on day it explodes in a fire ball and consume me.
