RE: BEV battery technologies changing fast

Well, it would be nice to see. But they have some catching up to do. The Cadillac presentation was just pushed back, the disappointing Bolt makeover was a definite set back and Bolt sales are way off from expectations and they are having difficulty producing even 20,000 EV’s a year. I do think they are getting serious though. Good to see. Just not sure we’ll see lots of production in the next 3 or 4 years. Jmho. Thank you for your opinion. I would like to stress to others that facts are available that make opinions inaccurate. Yes, GM has now delayed the Cadillac because of travel restrictions and public gathering restrictions related to the Covid19. In regards to Bolt, did GM ever provide guidance on the number they wanted to sell? Yes, sales were down over prior year. Maybe they were not profitable to sell. Do you have production numbers? Are you sure that they had trouble producing 20,000? Data is available. I always love your opinions. They are never biased, and I often wonder if Elon has you on the payroll and you are assigned to RV.NET.

RE: BEV battery technologies changing fast

GM's new battery news is exciting Hope Tusk's giga factories can be retooled quickly...and if he has a retrofit plan. Tesla has been investing aggressively in battery tech and is expected to make some major announcements before the end of April. And this tech will probably be in production before the end of the year, if not already. I think GM is talking 4 to 5 years out. I hope that GM succeeds but I have given up on them after watching their stock do essentially nothing since they went public again. Tesla won't be needing to do battery retrofits any more than GM has been updating engines in 5 year old cars, which is zilch. Did you read anything? GM is talking next year.

RE: BEV battery technologies changing fast

Note the estimated recharge lifetime of only 1000 cycles. This is not anywhere near enough - in my opinion. If one was to "top up" their EV battery once a day every day - just to feel good with regards to always leaving home with their EV battery at the 100% charge level (like we do with our smartphones) - then the EV battery would only be good for a little over 3 years (3 X 365 days = 1095 days = 1095 recharge cycles). A charge cycle life of 3000 or more cycles would be more like it ... to go along with the estimated 800km EV range. GM has an eight year warranty on the battery. So I am not sure what constitutes a cycle, but I cannot believe that you can kill the battery in 3 years. But I will see, since I just got one and will have it for 36 months.

RE: GM 400-mile battery

Sam1 - I think you posted this to just have something to do with Shiner and Time. You started with a innuendo against GM, and then go off into environment nonsense, attacking anything that is not Tesla. Did you see my post that included the vehicles that will be using this battery? Did you see all the details that were released? And for Turtle who is keeping score, there is statements about the number of electric vehicles that GM will have. Unfortunately, they have now delayed the unveiling of the Cadillac because of Covid19.

RE: GM 400-mile battery

Tesla killer -- not really, Tesla is at 390 miles and semis are 500-mile batteries. But good news for those who don't like the looks of Cybertruck. Or, the GM fateful -- except they will probably boycott this because GM CEO said they are into electric vehicles because of she believe in climate change. Sam1 - Maybe you should keep reading. I am surprised that you were not invited to Michigan to see all that is coming. GM let many influencers into the future. The GMC Hummer electric pickup, slated for production in fall 2021, will be the first vehicle with new battery technology, GM said. The automaker also gave previews of other EVs to follow: a Hummer SUV, a midsize Chevy SUV, a Buick SUV and crossover and three Cadillacs — including a six-figure, hand-built sedan called the Celestiq. GM has said it plans to have 20 EVs globally by 2023, and it's converting the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant into an EV manufacturing hub with a $3 billion investment. You better find more hype for Tesla! And remember, even though I can watch electricity being made from coal from my back yard, I did lease a Bolt EV.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Loup Ventures is a research-driven venture capital firm based in Minneapolis and New York investing in frontier technology. Amazing that they surveyed 22 construction employees that use a pickup. That only leaves another 5 million to survey. Not sure that I would invest in a venture capital firm whose research is sample size 22. So you Tesla fan boys will call me a hater. Just don't go for the nonsense.

RE: Chevy express Towing U-haul flatbed w/ 4650LB trailblazer

2014 was the final year of a 1500 Express. That would be the newest AWD you would find. The 4.3 in Express is the new 4.3.

RE: Chevy express Towing U-haul flatbed w/ 4650LB trailblazer

The earlier 3500 came with the 4.8 V8 and the 6.0 V8 as an option. Then GM shifted to the 4.3 V6, with the 6.0 as the option. The G80 has always been an option. I believe that the 2019 rentals had the G80 added as options.

RE: 2004 Duraburb

This is why I joined tonight, anyone know what the future of viable passenger tow vehicles is for TT? So far you can still get an Express or Savana that will haul a 9500lb trailer. And if you buy one that was used as a rental, you can get them for under $25,000 with less than 20k miles. And yes, they do not have all the gadgets and comforts. But when not towing the TT, you can take your spouse and 4 other couples on brewery/winery/bourbon tours.

RE: Has anyone been to S. Africa?

It has been 14 years since I spent 8 weeks in Port Elizabeth, South Africa for work. We visited Addo Elephant Park, and went to a nearby Safari. Also visited the beaches. I no longer have the information of where I stayed. I have always wanted to go back.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

This is ridiculously funny for the haters who play finance. Oh yeah, I was a corporate finance officer and I'll borrow cheap money or issue more stocks even if I'm cash flow positive because I am confident I'll have an ROI on that money than my cost of borrowing it. And yes, I can be an asset rich billionaire but my assets are not in cash. If I'm Elon, I won't sell my Tesla holdings to get the cash but would rather arrange to make a loan to the bank. Same principles, my upside on my stocks will be a lot higher than my cost of borrowings. Glad you think that misleading investors is just fun for haters. I get great joy seeing you defend Tesla for everything, no matter how ridiculous. At least Time seems to have some objectivity in his statements, and we we know who the other "Tesla with blinders" posters are. I cannot remember another company going out with public statements, confirming direction and making market reacting statements, only to execute the opposite. Maybe you could provide some examples?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Amazes me that they revise their business plans every 10 days. To publicly state you will not be selling more stock, to doing it in less than 14 days.

RE: 2017 Chevy 6.0L 15 Passenger van

You will have no problem, but I would recommend replacing the shocks. It will not win races, but gets the job done. I appreciate the non-towing fuel economy. When you get get over 16 mpg with 10 or more people, it is efficient.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I put my money in the competition and now have a Bolt EV. Out of curiosity, were you able to find any other EV's to test drive or was it more that it was easier to find? How does fit and finish look? That's the 60 Kwh battery pack too, right? I still want that Hyundai Kona...if Hyundai will ever sell it here at a price point I can afford. Health issues are diminishing that possibility now. I did not look at any other EV's. As an employee of GM, I drove a 2019 for the last week, and purchased the 2020 on Thursday night. The 2020 has a 66 Kwh battery. From a fit and finish, I saw no issues. There are currently some great incentives on the Bolt, so I decided that I would participate in GM's electrification. Additionally, my electric company will rebate $500 dollars on a 240 charger. So I have my Juicebox installed (I had open spots in my garage electrical panel). Therefore, I should not have any issues with this vehicle and range. I do have four other vehicles (the joy of having four daughters) to use for long trips.

Ive been driving Chevys for many years now,but their one EV is pathetic compared to Tesla. Thank you for your opinion. It was exactly what I expected from you, nothing less. I will just enjoy it!

RE: Check Me....I am OK with this set-up

Your tongue weight will probably be closer to 1400 than 1200. I tow mine with a GM 6.0. You will not win races, but you will make it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla unveils its new Full Self-Driving computer in detail: ‘objectively the best chip in the world’ So you go back to an article that is 9 months old, indicates that the vehicles are already built with it, roll eyes and comments, and did not acknowledge that Elon had indicated that everybody with this would be making money with their autonomous car today. So feel free to keep hyping Elon. I put my money in the competition and now have a Bolt EV.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Yes, explain that to Dadoffourgirls. I just think it will be very difficult to make self driving cars compatible with existing roads. I don't think self driving cars are impossible, just the vehicles and roads will need to be designed to work together.Yes I agree. Dadoffourgirls seemed to think it was a self driving vehicle that caused an accident. There are no self driving Tesla so it was driver error. One of 30,000+ expected this year just in the US. I know all of you that worship Elon. But advertising "autopilot" and that you will have software to make your Tesla a "autonomous taxi" to make your money back, and NOT BEING ABLE TO DISTINGUISH STOPPED EMERGENCY VEHICLES is horrific in my mind. Yes, it was driver error based on advertised "safest vehicle in the world". Unbelievable how some of you rationalize your beliefs. I have values.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

...But regulators are still hesitant. Human are funny as we can tolerate fatal error made by our own. But for machines, it has to be more than perfect. Tell that to the family that lost their young daughter over the holidays in Indianapolis because the Tesla ran into a fire truck that was stopped in the lane on I-70.

RE: GAS 6.6 GM

Both the 2019 and 2020 have the MYD 6 speed. The specs are the same. Therefore, I believe that it is the same transmission.
