That's hilarious...coming from you, a non EV owner.

Damm, now if I posted that to wake you up to the new world, it would make sense.

Oh, I'll remind you again....electric vehicles were around looooong before the horse was replaced by the ICE powered car.... wonder why that technology didn't replace the horse?

Bwahahaha

Electrics, same old reasons like today I presume!!

I do like the steam cars like the Stanley Steamer.

Now there was a car that would run!!

Too bad you had to wait for it to heat up as well as fill with water and some sort of fuel to use to boil it.

The gauntlet has been thrown down.

Surely in the name of increased power this indignity can be righted.

even in perfect conditions, batteries are an inefficient energy storage , and transfer device.
This is why I wish somebody would figure out a super capacitance electrical energy storage device and we go away from batteries in transportation applications.
