Chat GPT Thinks A Lot Of Things About EVs… But Most Of Them Are Wrong…

From Transport Evolved.

It’s April 1st, and while we’ve often delved into a little mischief in past years, this year, we decided to do something a little different: ask Chat GPT (and other large language models or LLMs) what they thought about EVs.

So, we crafted a pretty loaded prompt that we hoped would cause various AI systems to respond with its concerns about EVs – and even let it create its own video (which we of course, debunked).
