A loss in revenue for dealerships.
EVs typically require less maintenance than their internal-combustion counterparts, and they could become even more reliable down the road as the technology improves.
This is because EVs tend to have fewer moving parts, and of course there are no more oil changes.
Cadillac just learned that some dealerships aren't looking forward to that, and it turns out that was 17% of the dealerships it had. They opted for a buyout instead.
The other option was to spend around $200,000 on average, to upgrade their facilities with charging, tooling and training for EVs.
And of course, what to do when there's no power grid, like Texas last year, or California in every heat wave?
The power companies are not to be relied upon, and the more the culture in the USA switches to electric, the less the power companies will be able to be trustworthy, especially after a hurricane in New Orleans, etc etc.
I haven't heard any news about any upgrades to the century old power lines, power poles, etc, and the use of electricity only grows with all the additional tech inventions, like apple watches, tablets, cell phones, electric cars, flat screens, powered home theater subwoofers, etc etc. Looks like there will be a lot of growing pains
