Winds of Change?? Ford Motor Co.fired 580 EV engineers. Their car sales lost 3.1 billion USD, last quarter. Ford was invested in Rivian and Rivian's stocks tanked. Ford lost 4.6billion and Amazon lost 7.8billion US. Rivian had over 180k buyers and have yet to deliver (since 2018) they also were building the EV Delivery Vans for Amazon and instead of a 100k EVs a year they MAY be able to produce 25K. Amazon's contract goes to 2040. Ford was planning on using Rivian's "skateboard" platform for their EVs.
So, are they realizing EVs are a pipe dream or is there something else they've realized?

Would I buy an electric "motorcycle"? Absolutely, on the same day I would marry a blowup doll.

i expect big brother will soon be collecting data from your rides computer while it is charging and sending speeding tickets to violators, letters to insurance companies that will jack your rates and a road use tax bill for miles driven/ridden. 23000 minus 4500 cost for my used sportster leaves 18500 for gas, cruising easy on highway at 50 mpg with 5$gal cost is 3700 gals gives me 185000 miles and no downloadable info from my carburated engine for the big govt snoopers to track me with,no thanks to electric, like my ride as is
