Juiced: the electrical vehicle takeover
Legacy manufactures finally noticed electrical vehicles when the Tesla Model 3 destroyed all mid- size luxury vehicle sales in its first full year of production.
Up for debate is not when electric vehicles will take over the US market, but when. Some say the maximum number of gasoline vehicle production has already peaked.
It becomes amazing when you drive electric just how much we have come been brainwashed to produce, use, and drive electric vehicles. Terms like “give it the gas” to “drop the hammer,” will give way to “Juice it.” Then one will wonder why in a gas vehicle you have to use the brake pedal and hold it down to come to a stop and keep it there. Once drivers realize 300 mile plus range is more than adequate with highway fast charging, the (ICE) Internal Combustible Engine vehicle could go the way of the VHS. How many people would want to purchase a gasoline powered cell phone, even if it was smaller, performed better, or lasted longer between fill ups?
Then comes the maintenance when every 5000-6000 miles in the electrical vehicle you rotate the tires, not the laundry list of gas and diesel vehicle maintenance items.
The vehicle aftermarket will require a complete overhaul. The shops not concentrating on vehicle brake and suspension upgrades could completely fade away.
Gasoline and Diesel tax could increase to further incentivize the change to electrical vehicles, at least until we have 90% adoption rate. How long do you think it will take until electric vehicles hold at least 50% of the market place, 5 years?
