He was off a few years in the PHEV.
The legendary CEO says he’s become a big fan of the hybrid cars that Toyota has been marketing for years. Plug-in hybrids are the wave of the next five years, Iacocca predicts.
@fordnation has scrapped all things green in Ontario.
Just because I refuse to buy the premise of the climate change cult, disagree with paying for unreliable and therefore useless power like wind and fake power like nuclear, doesn’t mean I’m against real power projects
I am for encouraging those with facility to build solar. My roof is now fully covered. The power is real. The efficiency is good on a smaller scale
, just not on an industrial level.
Another aspect of the green agenda that needs to be rethought out is plugin hybrid. This is the most practical vehicle avsikabe, and should be encouraged and subsidized. I bought a Ontario built/subsidized Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, and am thrilled with the fuel and POLLUTION reducing strength of it.
Notice I used the word pollution. This word has been superseded by climate change. Pollution is real, and it kills. Climate change is a concept that can only be sold via propaganda.
Pollution needs no such promotion, as we all struggle daily with bad air, plastics, RF dangers that could lead to our early demise.
If we talk and do something about this real issue, then we could all benefit.
Encourage Premier Ford to place subsidies back on Ontario made phev cars, solar energy, and other sensible initiatives that we can SENSE.
Nothing like a little nationalism to keep good union jobs in Canada.
Just took delivery of a new Pacifica Hybrid. Proud to support Canadian workers and hope more buy Canadian to keep union jobs in Canada. @fordnation keep the $14k rebate on this vehicle please.
The only way to overcome range anxiety and have just one car is a plug in hybrid.
My 2013 Chevy Volt is the best car I’ve every owned so why do I need a Model 3? I’ll answer that question: the Model 3 is a force of nature with the connectivity, brains, battery-only range, and charging infrastructure that my Chevy can’t offer. But that doesn’t change the fact that the original Volt was a stroke of GM genius (hat tip to former GM executive Bob Lutz*) and the fact that it was an early EV pioneer (released December 2010). And the fact that it’s still a relevant
, highly-practical EV.
A so-so documentary lamenting the EV1, shows the beginnings of Tesla and its founder’s ouster, and praise for the vision of Bob Lutz.
Interesting that the Chevy Volt hasn’t changed much, but still is a good alternative to a standard (small) sedan.
I am still waiting for my Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that I ordered March 3
Common sense look at the insanity of owning a Tesla – for anything other than owning a toy.
I still think the Pacifica Hybrid is the only practical version of PHEV out there.
Most people know the cost of driving a car that runs on regular gasoline. You take the price of the fuel per gallon, and divide it by the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) number that your car yields. The resulting number is the “cost per mile” in variable fuel cost terms.
Here’s a response:
Here’s a forum link:
There’s so much wrong with this it’s hard to know where to start. First congrats on your purchase, you won’t be disappointed!
That seeking alpha article you linked to though is nonsense put out by a short selling tool trying to get the stock to drop so he can make money. I won’t go through every point that is wrong with that article because it would be a lot to cover and I doubt anyone would want to read it on here
, also Ben Sullins covers it very well in this video if you’re interested:
I’m watching the Pacifica forums, and so far, lots of FORD stories (found on road dead).
I’ve tried two dealers, and neither even has one to test drive. Once I even called ahead, showed up, and found out the one vehicle was sold and I couldn’t test it.
Chrysler is bombing all around on this one, and it’s already May.
