I'm not suggesting Ford will out-tech Tesla - no one will in the nearish future - but brand and tradition loyalty will allow Ford to sell a ton of lesser vehicles. Wait and see.
People buy crappy vehicles every day - just look at how many Jeeps and Chryslers you see daily. Both unbelievably...
Yup. And I assume most here feel that way.
But I'm also betting more folks will want to stick with traditional styling. They'll sati's about the frunk, or the V2G/V2H option, or whatever, but for a lot of people it will be about looking like a 'truck'.
I would not be surprised one bit if Ford (long term) sells more Lightnings than Tesla does CTs. Many (most) people aren't comfortable with new, they want the same old, same old, which Ford offers in spades.
Does that equal Ford 'crushing' Telsa? Haha, no.
I'll almost certainly park my CT in the garage. First, I have the space, so why not, and second, in the summer the difference in cabin air temp being in the shade vs full sun can be pretty severe here in the south.
Somehow, despite all the innovation and efficiency that companies have added throughout the last couple of centuries (since the industrial revolution) there are still plenty of jobs.
Workers have to be malleable and learn new skills if they work in an industry where they are displaced by more...
