Poll - Electric Vehicle ownership now or in the future

I'm thinking about getting an EV or Hybrid in a year or two. Curious if and when people on DU are considering a EV. If you have one, let us know what kind and if you like it or not. Or what the biggest positives and negatives are.

Will be taking suggestions to add to the poll for the first 10 minutes after I launch this.

Study Predicts Both Ford And GM Will Overtake Tesla By 2025

2022 "Car Wars" report forecasts Ford and GM each will have roughly 15% EV market share while Tesla will plummet from 70% to 11%.

By: Dan Mihalascu
Tesla's electric vehicle market share may plummet from 70 percent today to just 11 percent by 2025 in the face of increased competition from General Motors and Ford, the latest edition of Bank of America Merrill Lynch's annual "Car Wars" study claims.

According to research author John Murphy, a senior auto analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the two Detroit giants will overtake Tesla by mid-decade, when each will have roughly 15 percent EV market share. That's an increase of about 10 percent market share from where both carmakers stand now, with new products like the F-150 Lightning and Silverado EV electric pickups expected to drive the spectacular growth.

"That dominance Tesla's had in the EV market, particularly in the U.S., is done. It's going to shift wildly in the opposite direction in the next four years."

Murphy believes Tesla will lose its dominant position in the EV market because it is not expanding its portfolio quickly enough to keep up with both legacy automakers and new startups that are ramping up their EV lineups.

Dad taking his daughter to watch the Barbie movie is legend!

In a touching and joyful gesture, Eleazar Rodriguez made his daughter, Katherine, incredibly happy by taking her to watch the movie Barbie. But what made this outing truly special was that Eleazar dressed up as Barbie himself, wearing a tutu and embracing the character. This act of love showed how much parents would do to bring joy to their children.

Katherine asked her dad to wear something pink to the premier.


Eleazar’s love for his daughter knows no bounds. When she asked him with a playful challenge, “Daddy, take me to the Barbie movie premiere, but wear something pink, or will you be embarrassed?” he wholeheartedly embraced the idea, knowing it would delight her. In an interview, Eleazar humbly shared, “For the sake of pleasing my family, I would do anything.”

The ULTIMATE GUIDE to Longevity Supplements 2023 - Ranked Based on Effectiveness

He is NOT selling these. He is only looking at the Peer Review Science. Seems like every time I post one of these, they get hidden because someone doesn't watch the video and thinks it's an advertisement to sell supplements. He is not selling anything.
