Exactly. It's just a matter of time so keep moving towards EVs or we'll be back to buying so much Saudi oil that we'll be funding even more wars in the middle east. Oh, I forgot....Trump already decided to sell them half a trillion worth of crap...forget they use it for terrorism and oppressing their people.
What continuously stuns me is that we need studies to tell people that essentially breathing poison has long term health effects. We evolved to breathe air with mostly nitrogen and oxygen, a little argon and with 0.04% carbon dioxide...and a few other trace elements. So why do we have to convince people that polluting and putting other SH*T in the air might have bad side effects??? Sigh. Sorry, redundant question. Trump doesn't even know that Isreal is in the middle east and the average American can't tell North Korea from Vietnam/Cambodia or even Australia on a why waste my time asking.
I hope they do a better job than CARB and don't waste much time on the hydrogen boondoggle.
And of course, now that I make fun of it, the comments work. Sigh. Anyway, this is one of the few announcements I see on batteries that I think will make a real difference one day. The fact they did a full on battery is a great sign of how practical this is in the real world. Of course, the cost side of the equation is still a big question....but at least it exists.
hmmmm, me thinks the comment system is broken today LOL
$201K??? That won't pay for the CARB Christmas party this year. Why bother to spend time/money to prosecute if you're not going to be serious about the penalties?
The real story here is that 3 years ago, similar polls showed that only 19% would consider an EV. So the curve is moving up pretty least for consideration. We'll see if that turns into purchases.
That's amazingly small. The total volume is about one third the size of a standard shoe box. I remember when these things were the size of a small suitcase just about 5 years ago.
Trump is such a F'ing tool. Sigh. I just hope they can impeach him and his Russian posse before he does too much damage.
Trump says this is fake news! Everyone knows sniffing exhaust fumes, huffing gas and glue got Trump to be the brilliant individual he is today...and he wants to share that future with all of us.
Interesting. For perspective, that's about the size of a shoe box for kids shoes. They used to be the size of a medium suitcase just a few years ago. Great progress.
Holy useful crap, Batman! The Formula 1 industry should be lined up waiting to give out sexual favors in order to get their hands on one of these bad boys.
@StrangLove, "People have been dying form cancer in every culture...get over it". LOL I love your "logic". You should lick empty pesticide containers to help clean them. It'll make a man out of you!!!
I love seeing technology and the cool new things we can do with it. Gives me hope for a better future. Yes, I'm assuming that moron, Trump, doesn't get us all killed first.
@SJC LOL I had the same thought. But then I remembered that originally there was this critical production of kerosene with this left over "gasoline" they had no good use for about 100 years ago.... Of course, that led to the wonders of climate change today. But the point still stands.
Jeez Harvey, I didn't know you were that damn gullible. I'm embarrassed for you. You live in a worse fantasy world that gorr.
@Strangelove, Who gives a rat's A$$ if CARB is making money. That's California's problem to live with or not. If they want to fix it, they can. CARB serves a more important purpose for the rest of America: They are outside of EPA control so they can force at least some level of green. And the market for California is so large that the automakers can't afford to ignore them especially as they align with Canada and form a de facto auto market that is large enough to force the hand of automakers. If you include the other states that follow CARB standards and add in Canada, you're talking about ~200million people. That is not something that auto makers can ignore. Is CARB corrupt, pushing hydrogen boondoggle and ignoring other factors like shipping? Yes. But that is something that should be addressed by Californians. For the rest of us, it's the only firewall left between that F'ING moron Trump and living in a wasteland in 20 years.
This is awesome! That moron Trump and the GOP can do whatever they want with the EPA, but as long as CARB does this here in the US and the EU keeps putting in more stringent standards, the auto mfr's will have no choice but to keep producing lower emissions cars.
This one could have implications and use in a LOAD of fields. Good research that will pop up somewhere in the real world.
LMAO!!! ^^^ This!!!! Nice one Lad
@Sator, You're howling at the moon. Never gonna happen in this country. with any type of nukes. So your "practical" is completely non-sense in the real world. Battery prices and other storage are coming down and wind & solar complement each other on load a good portion of the time. 20 years from now, they'll be supplying 50% of our grid.
Again: NO WAY! You mean breathing toxic fumes for your entire F'ing life isn't good for you?!? NO WAY!!!! I'd have never guessed that. Next you're going to tell me that smoking is bad for you too!
Sigh. Still no edit function on GCR after all these years. Clearly that was supposed to say "200 mile range".
Yeah, come back and tell me when you have a 20 mile range and then I'm interested in what else you have to say. Next.
If they have the "world's highest energy density lithium ion batteries", they need to sell those to fund their car factory! LOL Sure you do, guys. No pics (samples in this case), no proof.
