  • My only complaint about this video (and it's minor) is that you said "GM is late to the game" in regard to EVs. That's only sorta true. The Volt and Bolt have been out for years, and they're ahead of every single traditional OEM out there in terms of EV tech, bar none. Hell, they even have Tesla beat in a few important areas (like battery degradation--though this lead is slight). Where you're aboslutely right is: they're notoriously risk adverse. They developed some great tech, and then were VERY slow to get behind it. I know, kinda semantics, but it's important to note that they're not behind in tech (compared to all of the other traditional OEMs). Rather, they didn't promote it and build it out as aggressively as they should, sacrificing the lead they had (which was stupid). :-)

  • All the bull crap from the idiot lying about the technology I understand, but I don't buy the sexual assault accusation. The timing of the accusation is far too convenient. The serial assault occurred back in 1999, when they were teenagers, and she never came forward until now, 21 years later? I call B.S. It seems that they truly want to get him off the board of a company he founded, even on lies. What are GM hiding? Maybe some of that technology does work, and they want it for themselves without really investing in it. Either GM was involved or they truly are that stupid...avoid GM vehicles at all costs then.

  • It is still much much better impoving the fuel cell hydrogen engine technology for very clean electric vehilcles, including heavy trucks.. It has a very significant future. Hidrogen have been used as excellent fuel for a long time. Hydrogen was used safely as fuel in the Space Shuttle main engine, as well as other powerful rocket engines. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. We can easily get hydrogen from water, of course also sea water. It does need a special fuel tank to hold hydrogen fuel for its very large pressure and as very cold fuel, but the technolog is available, and as technogy progress it can get better. Hidrogen is also been used to generate electricity and produce drinking water for astronauts in outer space for some time, also using the fuel cell engine as electric generator. Using batteries to store energy for trucks is not good. It will be an enormous and utterly expensive battery, to power a heavy laden truck on distances. To calculate the cost of fuel, the cost of the battery must be taken to account. Not to mention the production of the battery and recharging batteries that consume a lot of hydrocarbon fossil fuels, to generate the electricity, creating lots of pollution. Also the efficiency of recharging batteries. There is also the problem of discading dead batteries. By the way, after some time mobile phone batteries can go bad. Imagine replacing a bad truck battery.
