American Electric Cars

There’s been a lot of news about American car companies — Ford and GM, specifically — building electric cars.

First, the news that this fall’s electric Ford Mustang Mach-E will come with hands-free driving on over 100,000 miles of US highways.

Second, Ford’s partnership with Volkswagen involves the creation of 600,000 electric vehicles in Europe.

Third, GM has announced its new, pouch-style Ultium batteries will support a range of 400 miles.

GM CEO Mary Barra also recently stated that there will still be gas cars on the road in 2040, but that’s just stating the obvious. Cars last for 15 years, on average. So unless you believe that gas cars will no longer be for sale in 2025, then they’ll still be on the road 15 years later.

But these still seem like exciting steps forward for electric cars.
