Interesting that heavy trucks have risen so much while the regulated cars and trucks have dropped almost the same amount.
Soon all cars will record everything that happens on the road. No avoiding tickets and lost licenses.
If the big part of the market is offshore you will have to add transport costs to the selling price. Otherwise, it's a great addition to solar and wind to supply power 24/7, and for winter heating.
"Precision of electrode coating is an essential factor for efficiency and costs of battery cell production. Even smallest production errors make battery cells unusable. Due to the high reject rate and the low throughput, lithium-ion batteries today are more expensive than actually necessary. " So any reduction in failure rate means less waste and therefore less pollution.
And when your fancy painted car is dinged in the parking lot , how will cousin Cletus fix it in his garage? Back to the manufacturer?
Carbon nanotubes are electrically conductive depending on the orientation of the hexagons, in fact as conductive as copper. There is no need to 'dope' it.
HarveyD Here is a great explanation of why that won't happen.
For California with very low coal utilization and many EV owners having solar it will be lower than most states. If you're going that way though, let's calculate the CO2 emitted transporting gas to the stations, and for all the gas and diesel vehicles involved in the drilling and processing industries etc.
Start by cancelling all fossil fuel subsidies and using that money to promote renewables and efficiency improvements.
So they want to use methane (85x as bad as CO2) the help store 'clean' hydrogen.? Ummm.
SD, have you not heard of geothermal, hydro, batteries with renewable energy?
there is no " dubious benefit in reducing GHG emissions." in the use of BEVs. It has been well studied and proven to be of much greater benefit. The obvious problem with hybrids is the continued support of the oil industry as well as the added complexity and maintenance of a gas or diesel motor.
No, no, no and no. "A wide variety of fuels are able to produce hydrogen, including renewables, nuclear, natural gas, coal and oil." This plan is meant to keep the oil industry as our masters. To continue wars for control. Solar and wind are democratic. You can have your own and control your costs.
@Engineer-Poet , you are sorely lacking in imagination.
The only thing this debunks is the supposed intelligence of our leaders.
Hyundai isn't competing with the U.S. They are competing with China.
OK, so Exxon alone posted $2.35 Billion (down from $4.65B a year ago) for the FIRST QUARTER of this year. So add Mobil's profits to that. Now they are willing to put approx. 1/2500 of that....spread over TEN YEARS into green washing. Impressive.
Great news. Now don't screw it up VW, by finding a way to fake the range or anything like that. Not that you would do something like that.....
" and having better thermal conductivity, which helps keep battery cells cool" Not a good thing when you are trying to keep them warm in winter.
The Navy find them best for their needs, but could be they have a low cycle life, or too high a cost factor or some other reason not to work for some other applications like in EVs. Temperature range? Expansion under load?
Musk is doing it right. His neural network controlled autopilot will make cars smart enough to go anywhere. Things are constantly changing in the real world. Bridges wash out. Landslides along mountain roads. Construction sites appear, accidents happen. Any car that depends on a map from space will run right into all kinds of problems.
Will this be a big step forward for Ford or backward for Rivian?
This would be a major leap for electric aviation. Light clean efficient planes.
