    All Things "E"

    I've started this thread to report/discuss upcoming developments & products in the battery powered sector with an emphasis on transportation but not be limited to that as the world as we knew it is/has changed & battery's will become a bigger part of our life's (generally speaking).

    This weekend is the Los Angeles Auto Show & I predict there will be a LOT of EV concepts as well as releases shown.

    Tesla will be revealing their Cybertruck this Thursday & Ford just announced their all electric Mustang SUV NOTE: excessively long Video/infomercial. Skip to the 20 min mark to see the car.

    Last night 60min had a story on the vast supply of rare earth metals located at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.

    Here’s a better video on Ford’s new Mustang (it’s not an infomercial).

    Not sure I like the idea that it’s an SUV (but that’s what’s in style these days).

    Should have called it a Taurus and left the Mustang as a muscle car

    I won't argue on the Taurus name but at 459 horsepower and 612 lb.-ft. of torque (GT), it ain't no slouch.

    It's not so much Fast (limited to about 150mph)
    but rather QUICK!!!

    On August 23, 2016, Tesla introduced the Model S P100D with ludicrous mode as its new top-level car, with all-wheel drive and an improved EPA estimated range of 315 mi (507 km).[99] This version of the Model S is notable for being the first electric vehicle to have an EPA estimated range greater than 300 miles (485 km) and for being the fastest accelerating vehicle currently in production, with a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 2.5 seconds, when optioned with ludicrous mode.

    I'm pretty sure Ford has financial interest in Rivian

    In my opinion, too much $$$$ to be much of a large scale contender once the Big Boy's jump in but we shall see.

    I hope Tesla has a pickup that looks a little more main stream, I dont think the "cyber truck" will sell in it's current look.
