Did you know? The wealthy love electric cars, priced similarly to the median price of a US home! Rolls Royce sales are up almost 50% in 2022 in case you were worried.... and their new $400,000 EV has hundreds of pre-orders as RR plans to be all electric by 2030. Cadillac has a $300,000 EV coming too. Hopefully we have enough electricity to fuel all these new cars..... my electrician is concerned! Homes that create power could be a massive future value-add. Think Solar!
