    Honestly, I don't get why some automakers go out of their way to make EVs look so different than regular cars in a negative way.

    Kind of how McDonalds gives you a salad in an elitist fancy bag instead of a regular paper bag for burger eating peasants. How else will everybody know how important you are?

    Aerodynamics.

    You have the E-Tron, EQC and I-Pace looking like normal crossovers, and the efficiency is terrible.

    Knowing the Libs, it will probably end up being a $5,000 tax credit @ 15% which means you will only see $750 back on your taxes. lol

    The $45K limit is a joke as well as you only have a few base models to chose from. Any option and you are over the limit. Shows just how expensive electric cars still are.

    The lack of detail may have opposite effect on EV sales.

    Also, doesn't matter. Most mfgers other than Tesla are having battery shortages.

    And it's a bigger problem "funning out of fuel" with an EV than an ICE. I don't mine pushing kms to empty display past zero in an ICE vehicle, but probably wouldn't in an EV.
    How does AMA respond when you call because your EV is out of juice?

    It's a tow either way, although I think you need a flatdeck, or you do for a tesla anyway.
