    Not even able to get off road and into the shade.

    Looks to be a down hill grade, do these vehicles coast?

    I think your next lead line is appropriate for this photo….”Might want to think about going to school instead”

      The only electrics I’ve run were fork trucks. The electric motor turns into a generator as soon as power is disconnected, so I don’t think they do well at coasting.

    No to fossil fuel!? That car looks to be built out of 50%+- plastic a fin product of petroengineering.
    fin bit of virtue signaling faggotry

    I still think the best one is the guy that said he doesn’t use fuel cuz he takes the bus. Would you even bother pointing out to this guy…….nope, neither would I. Some of those mechanical things are just so hard to grasp.

    That car uses a J-1772 connector to charge. Using a 110 volt source it probably takes about 12 hours to charge. 4 hours using 220. This makes the car worthless for anything other than a modest commute. I’d never consider an electric car.

    However, the current crop of electric motorcycles make much more sense. I own a Zero and can charge at home from 0 to 100% in 4 hours. At a 220 charging station it takes an hour. I average 70 miles on a charge. I ride mostly unpaved back roads into town where I plug into 220, get lunch, and am ready to go after. I also have gas bikes for longer trips but much prefer the Zero for a half day of riding. It’s fast, almost nothing to maintain, and very quiet. I ride it nearly every day.

    I guess his generator runs on unicorn farts and rainbows.

    With frigid weather there have been several good stories recently about how awful the electrics perform when their electrons get cold. Think about it: when you turn the heater on in an electric where does the heat come from? Duh, the battery; whoops, we just lost quite a few miles of driving range. Choice: do we get warm and have to stop sooner for a recharge, or do we freeze our butt and go a little further. Sort of like: do we eat cat food this month or do we pay for our meds? Not a philosophical rant, merely a bit of pragmatic thinking. Thanks to all the auto writers for pointing out yet another flaw in the 100% bull feces (hey, its Sunday).

      There is a report by the government of Saskatchewan on that fact. They tracked mileage and performanxe on 6 vehicles over a year. Including ambient weather.

    • RocketmanKarl says:

      Forget the heater for keeping YOU warm, it’s the defrosters (front and rear) that are the safety hazard. People will start to compromise their visibility to get more miles.
      Between the net environmental loss, the safety hazard of their silence (almost been hit twice by ev’s in parking lots-you can’t hear them coming), etc, you have to wonder what kind of virtue-signaling idiot would want one?

  9. B says:

    Gotta be staged. That genset would take tens of hours to recharge that battery.

    Seriously. Do The Math. It’s like 1800 watts continuous.

  10. Don in Oregon says:

    Dude needs to get a roof rack and permanently mount that generator on it.

  11. LoL No says:

    No hypocrisy there, that’s one of those new-fangled unicorn semen fired generators….

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
