Dodge Goes to the Dark Side
Dodge is canceling the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel next January. The vehicle has a 33-gallon tank that can take it 1,000 miles without a fill-up. They are exchanging it for an electric vehicle most don’t want. They’ve decided to launch their first all-electric model.
The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 was added to the lineup in 2014 as the first diesel available for the light-duty Ram truck in the U.S.
The 1500 EcoDiesel is the most fuel-efficient internal combustion engine-powered full-size pickup, with a highway fuel economy rating of 33 mpg, while the diesel offered by Chevrolet and GMC matches its 26 mpg combined rating.
Therefore, let’s eliminate the EcoDiesel to get a good ESG rating from Klaus Schwab minions.
The powers-that-be fined them $300 million for allegedly having faulty emission controls. Dodge had to load software on vehicles to bring them into compliance.
Software! $300 million for software when it’s the most efficient EcoDiesel vehicle of its size? Then, suddenly, they cancel this very efficient vehicle that competes with EVs. Interesting.
FORD ALSO GOES WOKE
Ford Motor Company recently announced the layoffs of 3,000 workers in America, Canada, and India in a memo to employees Monday as part of a continued pivot to electric vehicles.
Of the 3,000 workers affected, 2,000 are salaried employees, and 1,000 are contractors.
The cuts impact around 6% of the company’s 31,000 full-time salaried workers in the U.S. and Canada, The Associated Press reported. It doesn’t affect Ford’s 56,000 unionized factory workers in America and Canada.
Ford is going to use the money saved to “building this future” and “reshaping” century-old operations.
They will go “all in” on EVs.
will never be an expensive/glorified golf scooter in my driveway.
Then you will walk…
Not that I disagree with you it will just be illegal to drive a carbon fueled car or truck…
This s all about control. EVs can only go about 150 to 200 real world miles before you are forced to wait up to 6 hours for a partial “fast charge”. Add in that you can only use electronic means of payment and you are easily tracked. In China, if your social score (ESG here) isn’t high enough your car won’t even “start”. Additionally, your bank accounts will be frozen if you publicly say anything that the CCP doesn’t like. Oopsie, you made a post on social media we didn’t like…no driving privileges or money for you!
There is proven to be 100 years of oil still available…we can drive electric in 3022
Oil is a mineral that regenerates itself, they don’t tell you that
that is false Pierre. modern science has discovered that oil is constantly being restored deep in the Earth. they now know that our oil is not just rotted dinosaurs being pumped until empty.
There will come a time in the near future when we all will be driving used cars. Dealerships will be a thing of the past once the industry realizes no one wants EVs!
Yup just like Cuba
Did you see the latest Car Trek on YouTube? They took a brand new Tesla model Y and took it to Atlanta Motor Speedway AND IT ONLY WENT 18 MILES ON A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY AT SPEED. You want to talk about energy efficiency? My supercharged Dodge Charger Pentastar with 602 hp would have doubled that with just 1 gallon of gasoline and it holds 18 gallons. Still think there’s a future for EV’s? See how ridiculous the entire premise is? Glorified Golf Carts is all they are and EVER WILL BE! It didn’t work in the 1920’s and it won’t work NOW! This is all about destroying our way of life and nothing else. All the Carbon Dioxide from the exhaust of my Charger does is GROW TREES! 6th grade Earth Sciences people. What’s the next “greenhouse gas” going to be, oxygen itself? This entire thing is a GIANT FRAUD! An entire industry based on fraud. You would need “Mr Fusion” to even discuss electric cars. And to all you Democrats who think men can give birth? “Mr Fusion” doesn’t exist. It was ONLY a movie.
Today’s Fossil Fuel automobile engine is very efficient and clean. Consider that over 20% of the US Energy comes from Coal and Coal produces 80% of the pollutants in Electrical Energy production. So, since most EV are charged off the power grid the amount of pollution caused by EVs actually exceeds the about caused by a modern automobile internal combustion engine. The Zero-Emissions EV is a total Lie!
If we really want to lower car emissions we could go to Natural Gas Engines and ultimately Hydrogen Gas powered engines with the Hydrogen being produced by Nuclear power plants.
There is just something cool about internal combustion engines.
