Re: What’s stopping Ford and GM from building compelling EV’s?

Can you weight one pair with plastics?
Want to know how heavy it will be if I will use 3 pairs.
Not much. Somewhere between 1 soft taco and 3 crunchy tacos in weight. :mrgreen:

But certain things may go out of stock, particularly certain sizes of battery, soon. That's been the typical pattern. I don't...

Why not mount the batteries under the steering? Wouldn't that help with getting more weight on the front tires?
