    I think its a matter of when, not if. Post any information on General Motor's plans to electrify! I predict the General will not disappoint when it comes to electrification of large SUVs and trucks. It's too important of a market for them to lag behind.


    GM expects Cadillac to be majority, if not all, EVs by 2030

    DETROIT — General Motors expects a majority, if not all, of its Cadillac cars and SUVs sold globally to be all-electric vehicles by 2030, according to a company executive.

    Cadillac President Steve Carlisle on Thursday said the brand will phase out current models of internal combustion engines based on market demand. He expects an inflection point for electric vehicles for the brand to occur in the mid-2020s.

    “We’re going to enter that decade as an internal combustion engine brand. That’s where we are. We’ve never been better positioned as an internal combustion brand,” he said during a media event Thursday in Detroit. “It’s a decade we’re also going to exit as a battery-electric brand. There’s a lot that’s going to be going on for Cadillac in the ’20s.”

    Cadillac is expected to release its first all-electric vehicle as early as 2021 in China, followed by the U.S., as part of GM’s plans to debut 20 new all-electric vehicles globally by 2023. The company previewed the crossover in January.

    “It’s the end of the ICE age for Cadillac,” Carlisle said referring to internal combustion engines.`

    I can see the American landscape change again. Larger hotel parking lots spaced a hundred miles apart with charging stations all around and playgrounds for kids and fancier restaurants inside the hotels and maybe even car detailers on site since these EV folks never go to gas stations, most of them carry their window squeegeess and cleaners and towels with them.

    Hey kids, we're going to Disneyland! Yeah! It's only going to take two weeks to get there! Y..Noo!!!!

    Campgrounds are going to have to install chargers for the Tow Vehicles and prices for an overnight stay will triple or more, if you can get into one, they are spaced too far apart and likely won't have enough spaces for a decade or so.

    Imagine crossing the Eisenhower tunnel, have to spend the night on one side to charge up, make the run in 8 minutes and then charge up again overnight on the other side! LOL

    Such a vehicle would be mechanically simpler at first but boy, swapping out a worn battery pack for a new one is going to cost a small fortune. Life rolls on...

    Despite the shocking revelation that EV’s can’t tow a house for 27 hours straight, the number of units on the road doubled between 2017 and 2019.

    Not nearly at the level they subsidize the oil and gas industry.

    Tesla’s rebates are gone...
