..nobody really has electrics ready for the market.. 

Agreed, other than Tesla, the Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf are it as far as global EVs and even then Nissan still does not have their long range out yet so you have Tesla 3 or Chevrolet Bolt.

Too many electrics will flood the market and overwhelm it, just like Hybrids did.

This is most likely going to be just the eTorque system which doesn't add much in the way of power, but gains you efficiency in other ways. 

That would be extremely disappointing, just like the eTorque system.

What I originally heard hybrid Ram I thought it was a great leap forward and then I realized it was basically just to get moving and it wouldn't do anything once yo're rolling..I became disappointed.

It actually does do stuff while you're rolling, but it isn't power-add things. I should do a write up on all the things the eTorque does that aren't directly related.

what's really pathetic is that with the head start on the market that GM had, after all this time, they could have truly wiped everyone else's ass off the floor by now and owned the market.

Side note, how cool would it be for GM to re release the EV1 with modern electric powertrain?

Woulda.  Coulda. Shoulda.  The EV-1 was a product of old GM..the dead company.

Yup, The current CEO seems to think all electric, which I am very excited about especially now that they are looking to electrify the GMC Sierra!  :metal:

I remember parking in a garage in downtown Sacramento back in the early 00s and seeing a row 3-4 of these along a couple of the funky chunky Honda electric car of that time..all had CA government plates.

Electrics failed because gas was and is cheap and batteries were either too weak to do the job or too expensive to justify sales.  Once the batteries are actually superior to gas and charging is as fast as filling up, sales should rise significantly.  Give them at least 10-15 years for that to happen.

Actually since GM has probably built more cars than anyone else more GM cars have been crushed than anyone else's. This is not unique to electrics.

I agree with Drew, hopefully it will just be the ineffective e-torque baloney strapped on, and not full suicide.

Tell us how you really feel.

No... please don't. We've all heard it all before. 

We have never used sarcasm before here at C and G so no one recognized it.
