    Cadillac unveils new CT5 - the CTS replacement

    That started this whole problem-the CTS was doing "well" when it was the entry level product for Caddy (at least in the US) but with the ATS-which completely missed the mark and the CTS being pushed up market, both cars lost their shirts with their core buyers in the US.
  2. The other issue is will we have charging rates down to acceptable levels (under 15 minutes for 80% or better recharge) in the next 10 years-plus your not going to get major market penetration unless your product is under $45k or so-which brings up how much profit can automakers make off them too.
  3. My parents owned them as first cars-they are over 70 years old now.

    Rivian R1T electric pickup

    Not at all. The issue is that it sold alright for what is was, but between taste changes and more competition, it’s sales fell. At the rate Tesla and Riven are going, Ford will have a BEV CUV and Truck to compete that won’t look redictious at the same time.
  5. Lots of car manufacturers have had a better idea, but sometimes the market doesn’t accept it. Hydrogen has the same issues as electric-lack of refueling stations. More manufacturers are embracing electrics, so there will be more investment in charging stations vs hydrogen refill stations.

    Ford Taurus 2020 (CN)

    lots of noise on the internet-but when does that translate into sales? It obviously didn't The D4 is an ok car-my parents had a 2008 Sable and I have a 2013 Taurus SHO-both have had minor issues over the years-I personally hate the overall packaging-I find the car too "big", but its an awesome highway cruiser on long trips and the power the SHO has is great. I'm meh about the car itself-I liked my old Mustang GT better at the same point in life that my SHO is now. It gets me where I need to go, but I don't enjoy it like I did with the Mustang-plus I'm just getting older I guess.

    Tesla Model Y Debuts

    But they also where not featureless blobs like the Tesla 3/Y either.

    He's talking about the Original CD6 Taurus, not the refresh.

    Tesla Model Y Debuts

    The biggest shortcoming with electric car styling is the lack of a front grill. Its jarring to our eyes...its like seeing someone without eyebrows. Thats something car companies need to work on-if the photoshops of the Model/Mach E are any indication-looks like Ford actually gets it.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    Well I hope Ford revisits the packaging of the vehicle-I think they are going to be turning off alot of people with the new and improved way of doing things with stupid shit like that. Normally heated steering wheel and seats are standard equipment in vehicles sold north of the Mason-Dixon line FFS.

    2020 Ford Explorer

    So if you don't want the 202A package, its only $715 upgrade then? Damn that is even more stupid.
  14. They did that already-Ford has the trademark for the Model E name-thus why its called the Model 3.

    Tesla Model Y Debuts

    It’s following what they did with the X, which is styling disaster itself.
