Looks like yet another government boondoggle.
"Yet this $2 billion yearly “incentive” isn’t taking regular combustion engines off the roads. Instead, folks with gas guzzlers are taking advantage of the government program to add a vehicle to their collection.""
Funny satire, and at the current rate, not that far from the truth.
I imagine auto production at virtually all modern manfacturers looks similar, but especially if you haven't seen such production, you may want to look at a few minutes of this. It's about 5 minutes until the first human appears. There's a strange beauty in such a high level of sophisticated automation.
If you liked The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, this is a video for you.
If you're concerned about the possible theft of your car get a BMW 3-series.
And what's really nice is that I suspect F-150 drivers tend to vote Republican.

A very nice story. Good on Ford Motor.
Auto enthusiast Eric Peters comes down very hard, not for the first time, on Tesla and electric cars generally.
If it is, then electric cars aren’t “zero” emissions. Not if they’re driven, at any rate. In order to move, they consume electrical power generated by the burning of natural gas and oil and coal — which produces plenty of carbon dioxide “emissions.”
But the fatuity of the “zero emissions” fatwa doesn’t change its power — the distortionary effect it is having on the car industry generally — which is being forced to build lots of electric cars to “achieve compliance.”
Cars for which there is no market.
Or rather, cars for which there aren’t buyers.
