+1 hopefully the lame stream media will accurately report the facts going forward. Hopefully the first causality of the election will be the media's tendency towards selectively reporting or mis-reporting facts.

Really introductory and definitely written for people that aren't familiar at all with electric cars, but pretty glowing overall.

Interesting article, particularly the part about how important it was to be able to build the Bolt on an existing production line. People don't fully appreciate it, but the reason that companies like GM are successful is largely due to their ability to build flexible factories. In fact I suspect that factory design is at least as important to their bottom line as the design of the vehicles themselves.

Just have to wonder, could GM just fully automate the entire assembly line and use the human workers elsewhere in the company?

What the article forgot to mention is that:

The sticker shock about the average price of a Tesla Model 3 would be $50K otherwise, you'll have to wait way longer for the base $35K model which is dead last on Tesla's priority for manufacturing.

Most will happily continue to their drive their ICE vehicles until the day Tesla calls them...

"Lame stream media"? Jeez. If I never hear that stupid phrase again, it'll be too soon.
