  2. I dont think these are going to be produced like the cheaply made Chinese products that Walmart and Dollar Tree sell to us. If GM is serious in bringing these to North America, or similar small EVs, Im sure GM will make sure they are not junk. But then again, GM did sell Vegas, Citations and Chevettes to Americans. Oh...the calendar says 2021 and not 1981? That's right...2021. Here we are bitchin' that EVs are waaaaay too pricey and electrification is damn near impossible because there is suuuuuuch a low take rate yet this thing exists...with an interesting marketing angle

  3. March 28 - today Spotted this final gen Monte Carlo ... they look great in white and with the optional alloy wheels. I have a soft spot for these and get some cognitive dissonance (the last larger GM coupe within the more reasonably priced brands), seeing that they have held up so well.

  4. Now that the laughter that General Motors received for changing their logo has subsided, we could now focus our attention to ridicule Volkswagen when they officially change their name of their EVs to Voltswagen. (Their internal combustion offerings will continue to be Volks-wagen, until they dont produce no more of them...) At least according to the RoadandTrack article stating that its NOT an April Fool's Joke and according to their sources, the name change is real. https://www.roadandtrack.com/news/a35969854/voltswagen-name-april-fools/

  8. According to China Daily Wuling Motors, a joint venture of GM, Shanghai Automotive and Wuling Motors sold 36,000 mini EVs in January 2021 toppling Tesla's Model 3 as the worlds best-selling electric car and to add insult even if you combine Tesla Model 3 and Y combined they still did not sell as many EVs as Wuling Motors. Wuling Motor's Mini EV, has no connection with BMW Mini and it comes in two configurations, two or four seater, range of 106 miles and top speed of 62 mph and depending on options sells starting at $4,500 and $6,300. Four months before it went on s

  9. Nah you didnt... https://www.gogoro.com/smartscooter/2-series/plus/ if you actually took the time to read and understand what the phoque it is you are reading...you would see that 1. this is about scooters a) Asian countries in and around...Asia...which actually does include India, folk get around by bikes and scooters and the like... 2. you would have read that this particualr scooter has a range of 170 KM...or slightly more than 100 miles. Maybe 105 miles. Nobody is talking about long road trips with these. Its clearly you having an agenda against this..

  10. At those prices and range, I could definitely use one of these to just stay around town going to the bus stop for work, grocery store, gym, Rural King.

  11. I actually like this....think this what will get the current generation interested in cars again. While it may not be the next Beetle/Civic, it is a car that goes back to the basics.....

  12. It wouldn't sell here as a $12K gas car, why would it as an electric? Fiat 500 is probably better built/more modern @ $16K, and no one buys those. The U.S. is not the market for junk like this.

  13. Some comments suggest that this is more suited to be the official song of NYC than Sinatra's "New York, New York." I'd be okay with that. Highlights: - the first 25 seconds, when some local dudes are presumably near Times Square and then an early '80s Buick full size wagon, possibly with wood grain, just happens to pull up, an occupant lifts the hood, and it starts belching smoke ... and one drunken guy falls over the fire hydrant (seems to be ok) - at 1:45, why is it that so many NYC taxi cabs used to be shown bouncing up and down like this on TV and movies ... soft

  16. I don't pay much 'engine attention' to Chevys, so I would have to look up the specs, but 283-327 are the same family. 307 I couldn't say. 307 definitely was available in the full-size Chevys, too. It's not that it was a "great" engine so they put it in the Fleetwood for a bit, it's that Cadillac would rather have an engine association with an upper Division like Olds, rather than the entry-level Division of Chevrolet. Once the Olds V8 was gone, Cadillac went right over to the 'Chevy' V8 line.

  17. There was a 283 V8 in my parents' driveway at some point. I know that they were very good engines. I'm not sure if the 307 and the327 used either the same bore OR stroke. It also seemed that the 307 skipped over Impala/Caprice and was slotted into Malibu/Chevelle. I'm not sure. So, it's funny that 307 c.i. worth of displacement shows up again, in 5.0 liter form and as an Oldsmobile small block V8, in the early '80s, and possibly the late '70s. And turned out to be such a great engine that it was chosen to power top of the line Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham et. al. just like a TBI O

  18. Looks very Bahama or Caribbean style to me for the 60's or 70's.

  19. ^ After the initial year ('62), all Impala SS's were V8s. In '63, that started with the 283, went thru numerous 327s, a couple of 409s and a 427. SS package has a lot of unique trim & details, also.

  20. Very interesting ... I wonder where this "very" pink photos is ... thinking Savannah, Charleston, or other historic Southern coastal cities. Good on him or her. They snagged the right license plate sequence for that Riv. These used to hurt my eyes but, now, when I do see them, I appreciate them and that people are taking care of these polarizing vehicles. The Chevy ad was probably in the San Diego Tribune. El Cajon Blvd. The price makes sense, in a way. The barebones Maverick was introduced for $ 1,999, I think. But, look at what you started out with: a 170 c.i. inline 6, a "3

  21. Jeep has announced that this spring they will start a build out of Jeep charging stations at or near off road trail heads for free use by Jeep owners of their plug-in Hybrids and EV wranglers, Gladiators, and future product. While the charging stations will be connected to the electrical grid, they will also have solar roofs to help be as green as possible. The first two places that are already identified and to quote the article: Moab (UT), the Rubicon Trail in Pollock Pines (CA), and Big Bear (CA) will be the first off-road sites to get the charging stations this

  24. Yes, I read the link/article. The idea of it is good for around town or a couple hour day trip with friends but you cannot expect to attempt to road trip and pick out dealerships to swap batteries. There was also zero talk of range but They're likely small batteries with not-a-ton of range. The Harley Davidson LiveWire has a range of 95 miles combined or 146 miles city. I very much expect a battery/bike situation where batteries can be easily swapped to not have the capacity of the LiveWire, having less range.

  25. So then Mr. @oldshurst442, does David's quote below sound like a realistic venture on a road trip? So what EXACTLY are YOU doing to not let the "world pass us by"? What would you, personally, suggest me to do more to "understand". I certainly have never drawn a hard line in the sand against EVs. Exactly like @ykXsaid last week, I have previously stated nearly the same thing. I thoroughly believe EVs are the future but there are some hurdles to cross yet before they will really take off, the biggest of which is price that's been hashed and rehashed dozens of time

  26. What is actually wrong with you? If I don't agree with somebody that means I'm trolling? Would you prefer this site to be a big circle jerk and everybody just agrees with everything? @oldshurst442, but nothing to say back to this?
