If the EV has Direct Injection or CVT not having it!

😂 That’s the funny thing about so many “car enthusiasts” (especially here on BITOG).

THEM: “Cars are too complicated nowadays: I hate 5 speed autos, ethanol fuel, 6 speed autos, fuel injection, 7 speed autos, CVTs, 8 speed autos, variable valve timing, 9 speed autos, displacement on demand, 10 speed autos, direct injection, catalytic converters, evap systems, particulate filters, DEF, etc.

ME: Ok, I suggest getting an EV. They don’t have any of that stuff and are very simple machines.

THEM: But I hate EVs!!!

Ford just announced $22B in EVs through 2025.

Doubling Down on Connected EVs
Farley said Ford will now invest at least $22 billion in electrification through 2025, nearly twice whatthecompanyhadpreviouslycommittedtoEVs. Hesaidthecompanyis“allinandwillnot cede ground to anyone” in developing and delivering connected electric vehicles and services in mainstream areas of strength for Ford: pickups, commercial vans and SUVs.
“We are accelerating all our plans – breaking constraints, increasing battery capacity, improving costs and getting more electric vehicles into our product cycle plan,” Farley said . “People are responding to what Ford is doing today, not someday.”
