quote: It's similar to how Intel half-assed the Atom for so many years until ARM & Qualcomm forced them to step their game up with Bay Trail.
quote: Nobody cares about your worthless incorrect assumptions.
quote: The purpose of a PHEV

quote: There's very few gov't forcing sales of EVs. Just the CARB states, and it amounts to a small percent. And guess what: Fuel cell vehicles are worth nine EV credits.
quote: Subsidies are a red herring: EVERYONE can get their hands on them. It's an open competition. In what way are they an excuse for half-assed efforts?
quote: I never said they're for everyone, especially pure EVs.
quote: How many $100k cars rolling around do you see on a daily basis?

quote: It's IMPOSSIBLE to meet the new fleet requirements using just ICE vehicles

quote: But go look at every new technology: You ALWAYS aim for the high-end market first, then go for cost reduction to address the bigger market. Tesla success is based entirely on grabbing a big share of the $100k car market.So why is nobody else following this blindingly obvious strategy? What's your explanation?
quote: This is what you get for supporting Government forcing technology down the throats of businesses and people when the demand isn't there, and it's not cost effective to do so.
