    Am I the only one who noticed GM has $20B in the bank?

    Between that, and their strong engineering capabilities, they have the ability to withstand some extreme economic punishment, as well as evolve themselves into the future.

    Like Ford, they desperately need opposed engine technology. They have spoken with Acates Power. I have no idea if they have a contract.

    If they could produce a gas truck that could get 25~30mpg while producing 1/10 the emissions of present vehicles, they would have some breathing room for a while.

    I don't own GM but I have looked longingly at this company for the last couple of years.

    GM in the news with Trump saying Mary Barra should reopen the Lordstown plant that closed last year. Funny part is he was “involved in the sale of that plant” to some electric truck building company.

    I want to give Nikola the benefit of the doubt. Imagine that the plans for their version of an electric car is viable. Engineering basics of power supply, drivetrain, etc actually do work. But they have no experience in building a car, and no way to actually build a car. They can't get airbags. Suspension parts. No subframe parts. No way to fabricate the body. Trees On The Mirror clash with Fuzzy Dice.

    GM engineering could actually produce a car using Nikola design specification.

    Mass production. A dealership network. Worldwide sales. Then bamboozle the stupid with a GM badge on 1 version. And a Chevy badge on another. Dumb people actually think GMC 1500 and Chevrolet 1500 are different trucks.

    If the spec of 200KWh and 350mi range is true, that is an extremely low efficiency vehicle. Also, GM is going to have to pull a lot of batteries out of a hat. Perhaps the GM/LG partnership will bear enough fruit to produce a reasonable run of these vehicles.

    I'm not sure what to make of this vehicle. It looks very good. Efficiency seems to be off a bit but this may evolve before production release.

    Do Hummer drivers want battery electric? Perhaps they do, based on demand for the CyberTruck.

    I'd like to see the eHummer succeed. I'm pulling for GM to be a viable, long term, vehicle supplier in the next era of transportation but Tesla just released an FSD beta this evening so the widening gap is becoming a concern.

    I wonder if a market will develop. All this is fine, until the car hits the showroom. We will have to wait and see if anyone steps up to buy it.
