A (Satirical) Rebuttal to “The Astounding Non-Success Of Sparky Cars”

Governor Brown, Call Your Office, EV Sales not going as planned.

Guest satirical rebuttal by David Middleton

Willis’ post on EV’s was very unfair… At least according to some of the comments.  So I thought I would post some graphs demonstrating that EV’s aren’t quite so astoundingly unsuccessful.

One of my favorite metrics is Ford F-Series pickup trucks versus electric vehicles.  F-Series sales literally crush EV sales… But, EV’s don’t appear to be losing much ground against the F-Series.  EV’s are falling further behind F-Series sales at a somewhat slower pace than they were in 2017.
