EVs on the up ... and up

Post by Bryce »

Wow - CarSales.com.au listings for EVs for the first time have cracked 500 for sale! Give the total site has reduced from a high of near 200,000 in Feb to a current 131,000 ... but the number of EVs for sale never fell. Instead they have steadily increased over the same time. AND there weren't the same ones. They have been steadily selling PLUS rising in price, not falling like the rest.
The rEVolution is happening ... despite the best efforts of our so-called 'representative' governments here....

Amazingly the cheapest EVs are still $15k or so.
Considering the Leaf was over $50k 8 years ago its not all bad. But cars are just a waste of money, some are bigger wastes than others.

I gave up smoking ( a lot) 6 years ago. The money I saved (tobacco excise), paid for a Kona EV ( save fuel excise maybe). I know which one was the biggest waste of money.
