All the stars are lining up for Japanese autos now, weak yen, CCP geopolitics, uncertain continental Europe, it would be a wasted opportunity of a lifetime if Japan Auto doesn't invest.

The average prices of EV are still relatively high comparing to their ICE or hybrid counterparts. Also not everyone is lucky enough to have a spot to park the EV and recharge it at night. There is still too many problems with fast charging at those charge stations.

Japans automakers have put off EV too long and are two decades behind on getting them out the door. Now they will try to go toe to toe with America’s market which prices them too expensive to adopt and Chinas which prices them too low to not adopt.

Not sure where Honda and company will fit in but good luck

Looking forward to the new batteries that are supposed to be coming out in a few years. They are talking about 1000 km range with very fast charging, maybe 20 minutes to get hundreds of miles of range, and cheaper than the current batteries. We will see.

Saw an article that said we have reached max petroleum usage, and it may start going down.

They are only about $11,000.

From the internet:

GWM has slashed prices of its Ora hatchback, cementing it as Australia’s cheapest electric car – at least for now.

The Chinese brand has announced new nationwide drive-away pricing for the Ora range, which now opens at $35,990 drive-away for the Standard Range – down $4000 on the previous price before on-road costs.

Well, not here down under mate.
