  1. Anything that leads to the automotive landscape returning to a pre-monstrous fleet of large trucks and suvs is preferred, if you’re serious about resource conservation and pollution.

  2. Now now, no need to be conspiratorial. The administration is raising the price of everything, not just gasoline.

  3. The Administration is desperate to get the price of gasoline up to $5 a gallon, so EVs make some kind of financial sense.

  4. I'm not planning on buying a car anytime soon but were I buying a car for myself I would be hard pressed to not get the ID4. I'm planning on my next car purchase being in five years so by then lots of choices.

    Also the number of Taycan's sold is impressive given the price.
