EVs will cost the same as gas-powered cars by 2025

If the price of EVs is what's keeping you from giving up your gas guzzler, you may not have to wait long for the prices to come down. In a study released today, Bloomberg New Energy Finance says that the cost of electric vehicles will continue to drop as the batteries that power them get cheaper. Even with lower oil prices, EVs will be able to compete with gasoline and diesel automobiles in terms of price by the mid 2020s.

The video is 20 minutes long, you got the CliffsNotes?

Why should I be careful buying a gas powered RV?

Ok, are your Bounder and Jeep electric or gas guzzlers? Thereís plenty of gas and diesel. The more commuters that buy EVís will mean more diesel for our pushers. The surplus natural gas will be needed to run the generating stations to charge all those batteries and night. And how about that range? Will I be able to go 700 miles without multiple stops for a recharge like I can in my diesel Jeep?

There was nothing doom about the video, just showing the coming EV change and might come faster than expected..

The good news is gas will be cheap and remain cheap cause of far less demand.

However those that own a auto repair shop or is a mechanic by trade your far out history of having a job does not look so good as well as mom/pop gas stations once EV cars/trucks are everywhere..


2025 will be a different world.

If the EV change comes on fast as said in the video buying a high priced ICE in a motorhome or a diesel truck would not be wise, I think we are OK up till late 2020 than I would not invest in any high price motorhome or truck and just keep the one you have till its dead and ready for salvage..

Very few if any will want a ICE once the EV price is low and the dealers have tons of them on there lot for sale..

Change is coming, just accept and be ready..

Yes in the video they explain the oil demand will drop and fuel prices will also drop, so cheap gas for all and will remain cheap..


But many companies that make autos/trucks will change over to the new EV that will be in high demand and ICE will soon be a dinosaur, so watch the coming EV movement and don't spend to much on high priced motorhomes or diesel/gas trucks cause you will be upside down and few buyers by 2025..

As for me what I have now I will not sell or trade in, I am going to use my motorhome/Jeep/boat for a long time than I will buy electric when that time comes and when they are even better and cheaper..
