Davemart. It nice to know that your mind is blown. The Roadster is out to improve on the specs of gas card like Veyrons, McLarens, Lamborghinis and other cars that sell for 2, 3 and 4 times the price. No one regularly drives those cars at their potential. It is a status symbol and proves the superiority of EVs. Oh and it's not 0-50 in under 2 seconds, it's 0-60mph. P.S. even if you drove at it's potential it would be many times greener than those other models.
46/5000 44/5000 Tenemos un crecimiento rápido, pero quieres milagros.
Would this be a better system for electric city buses as well? Is it scalable for smaller vehicles?
20+ manufacturers will catch up? Haha. If you believe that you bought short. No one is close or has a Supercharger network. The Chinese are busy trying to supply their own market, and Trump won't let them compete in the U.S.
A wind mill is for milling (grinding grain) A wind turbine is for generating power.
Interesting, so an EV running off a battery containing asphalt would be running on petroleum?
I believe the idea is to get completely off of fossil fuels. That was the reason for closing the coal power plants.
Deep breath there Davemart. Those meds are wearing off. Keep this up and you might start believing your own drivel.
EV batteries are advancing at a rapid rate while dropping in cost. When comparing you have to consider the embedded energy costs of generating, transporting and storing the hydrogen and the cost of every hydrogen filling station. (of which there are very few now.)
Sounds like an elegant solution to heat problems, though it would seem that the more pressing problem in Canada would be heating the battery.
Range? Well, lets see..."Optimized for city driving" so I guess it depends on the size of the city you want to cross.
"The average price of a new light vehicle (including both cars and light trucks) was up to a record $31,790 in 2016" After rebates, that makes the Tesla Model 3 cheaper than the average!
....and yet, engineers that are a lot smarter say that it won't be a problem. With V2G capabilities coming online and with 25-30 years to ramp up the smart grid will be MORE stable. Increasing renewable energy is stabalized by utilizing a small fraction of the available battery storage from the EV batteries at night.
The sooner we can get away from digging the stuff out of the ground the better. Plenty already in circulation for our needs. Nice to see renewable energy is making this possible. Now we still have the other toxins from fossil fuels to be concerned about. NOx, SOx, mercury, arsenic and on and on.
Problem is, if you do not use the brake pedal regularly you will not react instinctively when it's needed.
A lot of detractors notion of the speed of the change could be off by a country mile in the other direction.
This chart shows growth of EVs as being almost linear, despite the present growth being exponential and increasing. It also has no mention of the fact that one little global event can dramatically increase the price of oil overnight, and that gasoline stations already run at very low margins and will forl as plugins increase, making it increasingly difficult to own an ICE vehicle.
Cheap unobtainium is on the way!
China has double the present U.S. budget for scientific research. Trump wants to rush to Mars....without scientists.
Greater minds than yours have been proven wrong time and again by Tesla.
