2022 Promises to be an Exciting Year of Electric Cars - Rivian R1S, Hummer EV SUV and Lucid Air [for Car Enthusiasts]
The automotive industry is constantly evolving, and 2022 promises to be an exciting year for car enthusiasts. Rivian R1S has made it to Doug Demuro's list of cars he is excited for in 2022, and the Hummer EV SUV and Lucid Air are on my very short list as well. However, I'm not particularly interested in any gas vehicles going forward. It had its day, but it's time to move on and embrace the electric vehicle revolution!
Rob expresses his frustration with having to wait a few years before EVs become widely available. He wants an electric truck that has at least 400 miles of range or more, but unfortunately even this model is delayed. I agree that manufacturers need to take advantage of the current market while they can, because in a couple years the need for personal vehicles could be completely different. My own experience bears this out: between me and my daughter, we went from driving 31K miles/year to 6K miles/year. This makes me question why we need two cars when one would suffice.
Overall, 2022 looks like it will be an interesting year for car lovers. There are several cars I'm looking forward to seeing released - plus a few I'm not so excited about. Electric vehicles may still have some way to go before becoming widely available, but it's clear that they are the future of the automotive industry. I'm sure that in a few years, we'll look back on this time and marvel at how far the industry has come.
The Rivian R1S is an all-electric SUV with up to 400 miles of range and 0-60 mph acceleration in 3 seconds. It's also equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking and more. The Hummer EV SUV will have similar features but it will be bigger than the R1S - perfect for those who need extra space or want to make a statement! Finally there's Lucid Air which promises up to 517 miles of range from its 100 kWh battery pack.
On the other hand, gas vehicles are becoming increasingly outdated due to their lack of efficiency compared to electric cars. They're still popular among some people because they can be cheaper upfront but they don't offer any long term savings when you factor in fuel costs over time. Plus they produce harmful emissions that contribute significantly towards global warming so it makes sense why many car enthusiasts are choosing not go down this route anymore!
Overall 2022 looks like it could be an exciting year for car lovers if manufacturers continue pushing forward with electric vehicle development as expected - although there may still be some delays along the way before EVs become widely available across different markets worldwide! There are several models I'm looking forward too seeing released plus a few I'm not so excited about; however one thing is certain: electric vehicles are here stay and soon enough everyone will have access them regardless where live or what budget constraints might exist currently...
