  1. The number I saw was a little over 109,000 public charging ports. The article I read (dated August 2019) didn’t mention the number of locations, but the number of locations would be significantly less than 109,000. The number of gas pumps would be significantly higher than the 145,000 gas stations. It appears that the author was incorrectly comparing charging ports, not locations, to gas stations. I don’t expect the number of charging locations to match the number of gas stations, but I don’t think it is necessary to have that many charging locations.
  2. Technically, I’m retired now but I’m working part time. Another 12 months and I’ll “probably’ retire for good.

    Stellantis inline 6

    From what I understand, that’s correct. The 240/300 was a bigger engine physically. Side note: In the early 70’s, a few drag racers made cross flow cylinder heads for the 300 based on Cleveland heads.

    2022 Toyota Tundra Thread

    I’ve had my current Mustang for 4 years. I’ve changed the ambient lighting probably 4-5 times. The dash lighting has been changed much more than that. 😄
  5. Why couldn’t the Bronco be shared? It’s based on the Ranger platform. I’m probably missing something here.

    Cadillac Lyriq EV Teased

    How is this 9 months ahead of schedule? Based on your quote from April 2021, deliveries were expected to start in the 1st or 2nd quarter of this year.
  7. Most people don’t care about a company’s commitment to exit the gas powered market. The ones that do probably won’t consider the traditional car companies anyway.
  8. My wife is less interested in a BEV than I am. My son wants his next car to be a BEV. My daughter-in-law isn’t interested in a BEV yet. A good friend of theirs has a Tesla. That isn’t enough to convince her.
  9. I did get a software update to my Ecoboost Mustang at around 45,000 miles. Made a huge difference. It shifted fine for for a long time. Then I started noticing that certain downshifts were getting harsh and it slowly got worse. The soft update fixed the problems.

    EV NEWS: Kia Concept EV9

    Oh, I know. I just liked the impressively thin floor pan.

    EV NEWS: Kia Concept EV9

    That floor pan looks really thin. I guess BEV concepts don’t need to worry about unimportant items like batteries. 😄
  12. Agreed. The excerpt that rperez817 quoted from the article was enough to convince me that I didn’t want to waste my time reading the whole article.
  13. Several of those cities are within states that also signed the declaration. Doesn’t that make those cities somewhat redundant?
  14. I believe all of the Bronco’s body panels are aluminum.
