I read a great article this morning over coffee about the perception and acceptance of a good EV vehicle versus an ICE vehicle by the general public today and one of the observations and proof of the study was that as soon as someone gets behind the wheel of a nice EV, in this particular study a Tesla Model 3 their perceptions and opinions change after just a moderate driving experience. The point being that until the general public drivers have that opportunity they will be limited and somewhat strongly opinionated against EV's. The study and summary that I tend to agree with is that when Henry Ford introduced the model T the public was similarly aligned and after they drove one of those steel "horses" their opinions changed in a blur!

I feel that by 2030 about 50% of all vehicles and trucks on the road and in the garages will be EV's. :wink:

We IC performance and racing GEEKS will still have plenty of great engines to play with, wrench on and race with! Just be careful who you challenge at the stoplight.! They might just "Spark your Arse!" :lol:
I think you hit the nail on the head here. Spot on! Now being that I deal with all of these at work I have some reasons for skepticism on the basis of owning an EV. One of the big issues I have is this, if something happens to my ICE vehicle I can go to the parts store and go home and fix the dang thing. EV's are not as forgiving in that regard. If you could grab a universal battery pack to replace your old one, as well as the controllers (or worse yet the hybrid drive systems) and fix them yourself in the drive way then I would be much more open minded. There is an aspect of drivability that "if properly programmed" is heads and shoulders above an ICE. I put some of the tesla vehicles as well as the bolt up there.

Lets say one wanted to concert an old car to electric motor, what would be the cost of the motor that could run a 10.8-11s pass in a 3000-3400lbs car.. ??

As far as cost goes, it depends. In CT, you pay high kwh charges. Up here in the frozen northwest, it costs more to run our hot tub than it does to juice our electric car for our daily driving. Electricity is so cheap, we don't have time-of-use metering.

Cost me less than $1 overnight to fill the 17KWH battery. Takes me 43 miles the next day then gas kicks in. Then with freeway driving it gets about 43mpg
