Renting a new electric Kia EV6 for a four-day road trip ended up costing more time at the charger than expected, despite the dollars saved.
What about the people that can't afford a electric vehicle?And don't say they'll come down in price.2000 miles for $175 ain’t bad! The charging infrastructure, battery range, and everything behind EVs will continue to improve. Toyota is even experimenting with solar panels in the roof of a vehicle, so you can charge as you go. Exciting times, and much better for our environment over the life of the vehicle. I look forward to comparing the Silverado E to the Ford Lightning.
Just a silly post.What is the plan for the old batteries. They say they have about five years of life.
276 million autos in the US so say half go to batteries that's about 126 million. They will not go bad all at once of course.
I know they must have something worked out. Of course the longer it goes the more people will go electric so it will be an increasing number over time.
This may work out because people will find themselves walking which we need to do anyway and having good air to breath will be great.
I think I am beginning to catch on to this.
Since the power grid is maxed out now it makes perfect sense to take generators off line and replace with solar. That will prevent the lines from melting because of overload. As one charging station equates to 20 homes power draw per some experts that would be like adding a small subdivision for each charging station.
Electric cars may open up many new opportunities not realized yet. Example: when a car breaks down during heavy traffic that will require a helicopter wrecker to drop down and pick it up because you will not be able to get to it any other way.
Whole new industry right there.
Yes. this may work out after all.
Imagine how much better it will be when evacuating the path of a hurricane for example. None of that annoying horn blowing at the gas station. People will be able to line up quietly in an organized fashion and charge up. Of course because it is stormy it will be cloudy and solar generation will be down but I am sure they have accounted for little things like that.
If there should be black outs there would be no crime like now because everyone will be unarmed. There will be young men out moving about to help for sure. You will be able to tell who they are because they have 13 tats on their face.
This is going to be exciting for sure.
Dont worry Jeffro as soon as he's out of office its all tumbling down ,dont fall for it yet !Wonder what happens to all the old gas and diesel burners Gets to be a pretty good size scrap yard when you junking vehicles that are still running
Wonder what the cost to charge will be as electricity prices increase All those power companies are gonna make the necessary system improvements to the grid to handle the extra load for ev’s out of the goodness of their heart LOL Hell maybe Uncle Joe will just have em print up some more money to take care of it That way them boys can get to work and get it done in a day or two And I am sure all these supply houses just have about a gabillion miles of wire laying around along with the poles and insulators and hardware and then endless numbers of control panels for all Of the upgraded reclosing and sectionalizing equipment to use on all this new line Man is it gonna be nice being able to work on all this nice brand new equipment when I am on trouble call Thanks Joe for looking out for me LOL
. Being young and being naive are no more connected that being old and claiming wisdom, the pitfalls come from being caught up in one’s own prattle and not knowing the difference……..Thanks Huntsman.
I must say the naivety of the younger generations is refreshing.
