Brand and model loyalty... Why go to a legacy company...

They can't satisfy their customers...

They are selling 20% mostly with high mileage or damage...

Why are they keeping 80% ???

The average American can not even operate a high tech vehicle...

Then why are several automakers mostly dropping electric for hybrids? Its because they can sell the hybrids better.

Its sad that one of the main ways to sell electric is because of subsides and other govt interference, and not that they can stand on their own.

Maybe because they cannot produce a quality competitive EV so they are going with the hybrid.

As mentioned. I purchased an EV last summer. I elected to not purchase a hybrid because I did not want to maintain a dual drive system vehicle. I went with Tesla because they have been making quality EV's for many years. I am extremely happy with the Tesla.

Once you buy a Telsa you may never get back home.

" ................. We could spend all day plucking horror stories from these forums, but we think you get the picture: Plenty of owners are having a real bad time with their Tesla Cybertrucks. If you’re in the market for one, we’d recommend you do some digging in these forums, just so you know what you’re in for. "

They are just trying to protect themselves from electric cars being mandated in a state that isnt in love with them, as the country tries to mandate it on them. Just a push back. I dont blame them.

The end admits he really doesnt want to ban them.
