      Indeed, but now what? -Travis

    EVs crashing , early adopters have them now . None others want them

      Did the car crash or the driver crash it? The Tesla Model Y was the best selling car globally in Q1 2023. Cleary many want them…

      Of course many others want them. They are waiting for a greater range in body styles and more affordable versions

      They need to be under $40k and have a 500 mi range . Whatever range they claim deduct 30% especially at highway speeds

      You’re partially right, that the early adopters have mostly bought in already. As for nobody else wanting them, that seems easy enough to disprove. -Travis

    Id be interested in a video about the EVs at the Japan auto show.

    EX30 will not be affordable in many markets, with the base model starting at 53,700 in Canada, more than 50% higher than in the US. That is almost as expensive as a base Model 3.

      At the very least it’s more affordable than many other EV offerings. -Travis

      @EVBuyersGuide  agreed, but it’s still not truly affordable, nor close to the price of a similar gas model. With our 5k National rebate, along with additional rebates available in some provinces, this should sell in reasonable numbers. I expect the price will decrease over the next few years with increased production volume and competition.

    Travis, what is your take on Toyota’s electric vehicle pickup concept? Little surprised you didn’t mention it in this post.

      That’s a great point and I’m glad you asked. If enough people are interested I’ll look at putting together a video covering more of the Japan Mobility Show but the reason I didn’t touch on the Toyota concept is because I don’t have a lot of faith in it. That’s not to say it’s not going to happen or I hate it (I love small trucks) but more so that it doesn’t seem like something bound for the US in the next….5?…..years. It feels more like an effort to stay relevant in the conversation than it does a declaration of intent to build the product. And that’s a shame. -Travis
