Here's the future of Chrysler. Dodge's quickest-ever muscle car will allegedly be electric (msn.com)
Oh, boy! Dodge is going to join the rest of the idiot car makers and build a coal fired POS that you won't be able to drive because they're closing down all of the coal mines. How long is the toxic battery good for? How much are taxpayers going to have to subsidize this eco terrorist vehicle?
wondering when they were gonna jump on the band wagon, I would buy one maybe, the price tag is the big question
While it's nice to see that you're concerned about the environment, you should be relieved to know that U.S. coal consumption dropped over 24% from 2016 to 2020. It's unlikely that new power sources will burn coal, only one coal fired plant has gone up in the U.S.A. in the last six years, and that was completed in 2018. Newer plants are more likely to be natural gas.
There's still a Chrysler Corp????
In memory only.
Yeah, that's great. If I'm not mistaken, China and India are building coal fired plants as fast as they can and we are exporting our own resources to them.
Could have fooled me. https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/...l-production-estimated-to-rise-78-on-year-eia On a related note, there is coal in the U.S. that is low in sulphur. We don't consume much of low sulfur coal in the U.S. because it can be sold overseas at a premium price. Japan is (was?) one of the buyers. This is what I was told by someone involved in the mining/weighing/shipping of coal from West Virginia.
Can they make it reliable? Will they backup their reliability claims with an industry-leading warranty? Will it have an attractive selling price? Can I leave it in my garage without fear of it catching fire and burning down the house?
Don't be fooled. If you read the article, you'll note that the estimated increase is based over 2020 which, like everything else, had a sharp decline due to the Covid shutdown. Other parts of that article mention things like: "2021 production forecast declines for fourth straight month", and "Houston — The US is estimated to produce 581.2 million st of coal in 2021" This compares with 775 million st produced in 2017, and 1,117 million in 2008.
This entire push to electric is just sad. Another knee jerk reaction to a hypothetical problem.
The goal is and has been for about 50yrs, to destroy the automobile. Have you seen the movie Soylent Green? Global Warming as an excuse to force everyone to live in the city...where they can control you much easier. The car gave US freedom and the clowns "in charge" really hate that.
Of course it will have an attractive price...as long as the taxpayer gets stuck subsidizing this eco junk. I've lost track of how many articles I've heard about how 40yr old cars are more environmentally friendly than new cars. It's not about the environment, it's about destroying the automobile. If you crash one of these things, rescue workers have to wear special hazmat suits to get you out an deal with the wreck.
I heard from someone running for office that coal in this state is being shipped to Germany and India.
all I can say remember the slot cars when we were kids that took off so fast they flew off the track, hmm. with all the money and hype being pumped into this, its gotta be just a matter of time they figure out the batteries. then the new power grid system that needs to be addressed. my wife and I did a trip around the country last fall, as going thru some parts of texas, I've never saw so many wind mills in my life. It's comming and no ones gonna be able to stop it, I'm just gonna ride the wave and see what happens.
It was not the ( car ) that gave us , you freedom.
General Discussion forum I'll be sticking with internal combustion engines until I'm gone.
Chrysler Corporation Space Division is forever a part of history.
You do know electric cars are automobiles? Soylent Green? You are basing your argument on an old Sci fi movie? Instead? At least use Star Trek as an example? Societal efforts to better ourselves. By fact based evidence in pursuit of truth. I'm not predicting what the future setting may look? But one picture certainly looks far more appealing? The world of Soylent Green was because of over consumption of natural resources causing environmental collapse.
