Automakers Admit EVs Outperform Gas-Powered Cars

A recent article from E&E News reported that Volkswagen, GM and Ford can no longer keep a secret: that they believe that vehicles that run on gas are no match for their battery-powered counterparts. Since making that admission, they must now find a way to promote the benefits of electric vehicles without alienating their customer base that still prefers cars with the good, old-fashioned internal combustion engine.

In the article, GM admitted that EVs of the future will be “more responsive than its internal combustion equivalents.” The automaker’s new EV models include the Cadillac Lyriq and the Hummer EV. The latter according to GM, has 1,000 horsepower, making it more powerful than the Corvette ZR1. Both cars run on the company’s Ultium battery system, which the manufacturer describes as “more responsive” than any gas-powered vehicle with “precision torque control of its motors for smooth performance.”

Ford is working on the 2021 Mach-E SUV that the company says will go from zero to 60 in three seconds, making it faster than its own Shelby GT500. It is also producing the electric F-150, which has the ability to charge anything that is plugged into it. The company said this truck is faster, stronger and requires “significantly less maintenance” than a gas-powered vehicle. According to Ford, owners would save 40% on repairs over the life of the vehicle.

VW recently introduced the ID.4, a compact SUV electric vehicle. The automaker says this car will feature “all the best things about VW in one package,” adding it is the GTI, Tiguan and Beetle all wrapped up into one.

However, the challenge comes when the auto companies have to perform a balancing act between luring potential buyers to EVs and pleasing those who will stick to gas-powered vehicles. Red Door Interactive CEO Reid Carr, who has had experience marketing EV programs, asked, “How do you sell the internal combustion engine cars when you’re trying not to disparage them as you sell EVs?”

There is no doubt that EVs are the cars of the future. If you are looking to invest in an EV, but don’t know what to do with your gas-powered vehicle, call the experts at Gershow Recycling. They will buy your junk car and pay you top dollar. Call (631) 371-2031 or visit
