Yes and no. When a car company announces an improved gas engine, turbo, transmission, etc. does that make you feel your older tech gas engine is totally outdated and a dinosaur? Not me. Do you replace your computer every year to keep up with the latest tech? Not me. I buy and hold cars. Otherwise depreciation is typically a killer on resale and you'd be better off buying a 2-3 year old car coming off lease.OK, green is good and EV's are the future. But hope everyone here on forum agrees we are in the first early inning of a long baseball game. In life it's impossible to time everything perfectly, especially not knowing the future. With that said are there any buyers of EV or future buyers who feel that buying todays EV technology/design/performance could be totally outdated by say 2025 or 2026?
I've been driving my 2011 Volt for over 10 years. During that time battery tech has improved. Makes no difference to me except when I'm ready to replace the Volt which will be around the time the Equinox EV starts shipping. Same with my Bolt EV. It'll be around for another 7 or more years. At the end of the day the question is, can the car take you from A to B? All the rest is essentially styling, ego, and doo-dads. The utility has not changed just because there are new cars that have some new features. Thy don't affect my car one way or the other.
Heck, if anyone should feel what they are driving is a dinosaur, it's those with a gasoline engine congregating like gas junkies at gas station pumps. "Psst! Want some gas?"
So the "new tech" only matters to me when I'm ready to replace what I have.
