There’s some speculation in there but at least there are sources!
30% less labor to build an electric car? Estimated by Ford and other industry experts (that’s almost a source). Interesting!
Oh didnt realize this was a thread. I dont know why automakers dont see that as the ability to produce 30% more vehicles with the same staffing. Everything is always negative.
I see it as a positive
Its not like we are worried about buggy whip manufacturers
I am sure the same articles were written when the car started replacing the horse and buggy trade. No longer would there be a need for stables, blacksmiths, saddle makers, horse feed, etc. etc. etc.
Of course, since US automakers are way ahead of their foreign competitors, they will be able to take away jobs from other countries as US manufacturers take market share back.
Besides, its always better to eat your own lunch rather than let someone else eat it. Change is inevitable. who will rule afterward is the only choice.
