Let's get this right, guys:

Just say "no" to FWD EVs.

I have to add that the 186 mile range makes so little sense that I can't believe it will prove to be accurate. In five years, an EV with less than 200 miles of range is going to rot on the car lot.

I am personally very excited for the onslaught of small, cheap, high performing RWD EVs. With no more CAFE and other emissions regulations to worry about, there is no cost barrier to stuffing 450hp+ into a small a coupe, hatchback, or sedan. And with less drivetrain miscellany to sap valuable volume, you get more interior space in a smaller footprint. Lots of win.
