  1. How long can they keep this up? https://www.theverge.com/2023/5/26/23738581/tesla-model-y-ev-record-world-bestselling-car-electric
  2. Damn... https://www.theverge.com/2023/5/26/23738581/tesla-model-y-ev-record-world-bestselling-car-electric
  3. 6 vehicles in particular, and stated plans on how to achieve this: https://fordauthority.com/2023/05/some-ford-vehicles-to-have-best-in-class-quality-by-2025/
  4. (Rest of the article): https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/ford-test-small-uk-fleet-hydrogen-fuel-cell-e-transit-vans-2023-05-09/ Same reasons given for why Ford is forgoing BEV instead for fuel cells for the Super Duty. Though, I don't understand why it's a "hydrogen fuel cell E-Transit" instead of simply a "hydrogen fuel cell Transit".
  5. https://www.ctvnews.ca/autos/gm-passes-ford-to-take-no-2-spot-in-ev-sales-behind-tesla-1.6342348 This is just one quarter. I didn't realize Teslas sold that much. Pretty crazy...
  6. Advancements in battery tech and discovery of new materials are currently ongoing/being made at a steady pace. This is something that can be fixed through simple tech advancements, correct?
  7. Instead of going electric, Ford will be transitioning the Super Duty to hydrogen fuel cells: https://blueovalforums.com/forums/index.php?/topic/75052-instead-of-going-electric-ford-will-be-transitioning-the-super-duty-to-hydrogen-fuel-cells/
  8. I wonder if this is an inherent limitation of electric that can't be engineered out: https://fordauthority.com/2022/10/ford-super-duty-lineup-will-probably-go-hydrogen-before-electric/ Comments section there is interesting nonetheless....
  9. I've seen a bunch of these up close, and even ridden in some. In Asia and Africa, an extended Hiace has always been a 15-seater the size of an Econoline, especially now that the recent redesign has moved away from a cab-over design. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_HiAce The older models have even served as NPR-sized box/flat-bed trucks. For a while, there was also a complete unrelated mid-size version also called a "Hiace", which is confusing. Maybe that's the one that's been sold Europe. Maybe the European market didn't like cab-over.
  10. Isn't the Hiace a full-size?
  11. Ford doesn't sell low-roof Transits in Europe anymore after the 2015 redesign. In fact, that's what what the Custom was created to replace. So there's less overlap there. But Ford introduced low roof Transits to NA after they started producing the Transit here.
  12. Transit Custom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Transit_Custom Much larger than a Connect. About Chevy Astro and Aerostar size. It was made to replace the low-roof Transit in Europe, but the issue is low-roof Transits are being produced in sold in North America. Another issue is that, unlike the Astro and Aerostar, it's FWD only. T-150 is about the same size as the E-150 (and short wheelbase Express), especially the low roof, short wheelbase version: https://allservicecitgo.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/hotspot-3.jpg
  13. Maybe Ford is afraid of the Custom cannibalizing T150 sales?
  14. Ford reveals an electric school bus based on the E-Transit: https://blueovalforums.com/forums/index.php?/topic/75005-ford-reveals-an-electric-school-bus-based-on-the-e-transit-cargo-van/
  15. Not exactly a "cargo van" though.... https://electrek.co/2023/03/09/ford-reveals-electric-school-bus-based-e-transit-van/
