Possibly it also has something to do with most EVs being quite harder to mod their stock powertronics, yet some models reaching the need for a battery replacement could make it interesting to look at improvements and retrofits.

Also, we draw interest from folks with work trucks of a few types. Why don't we build on that. Truck subforums. More representation of them on the main page. Improving a work truck's EPA fuel economy by 10% is still ecomodding, even if it still gets under 20 MPG US.
That's a good point, not only for work truck owners but also for those who buy one for private use as they prefer brand-new while a more conventional car would be on short supply.
