Take the latest rumor about 2 million mile battery from the synergy from different battery improvements (chemistry, dry electrolyte, etc)... if this turns out to be true, then the batery pack will actually last longer than the drivetrain and suspension components. Even commercial fleet operators would have a tough time racking up enough recharge cycles before the electric motors wear out.

But, I am not so sure I would believe those rumors.
Me too, but there are lots of things I’d like to believe that will never happen. I prefer to get my rumors from the source. All this other stuff just makes me nervous...waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak.

Todays news reporting that GM is now close to a million mile battery and yesterday GM was reporting self driving as super cruise....seems they are really trying hard to stay relevant. I’ll gladly stick with Tesla.

When it comes to EVs, Battery Tech advancements, and automated driving tech, Tesla has a better track record.
