Someone just might be getting a good deal on a slightly used white Nissan Leaf in the very near future [emoticon]

Comical is an understatement.

To be clear, the majority of new EV’s sold would make that trip in one shot with range to spare with no charging. They took a short range commuter with slow recharge rate on a road trip. Go figure.

Oh, and when they do recharge it’s about 15 minutes to recharge that distance. Not 11 hours.

Great story though. [emoticon].

I think the more this is discussed, the better.

EVs are being pushed upon us as a replacement for ICEs. Many people will buy one thinking that it can do everything their car always has... Maybe a person is mainly a short distance commuter, but once in a while takes a roadtrip. This sort of person does not care how his car works, he just knows what it has always done for him/her.

The more the limitations are known, the more informed the public will become. And an informed public will make better decisions. About their purchases, and in the voting booth.

On this forum, we generally have enthusiests that become better informed about their passion. The general public is not being informed of the downsides by our Gov. or the people selling EVs.

So I say, keep discussing it, and not just here, everywhere. Get the entire story out there. The plusses, do not really need to be discussed, as the EV proponents are doing an excellent job getting their word out... The minuses need a lot of help to become known to the general public.
Those poor ignorant EV buyers.[emoticon] Quick Google of the demographics will show that they are superior to AvgJoe in the factors that might influence vehicle selection. [emoticon]

Don't rule out the whole thing is a joke written by a non-EV owner. Would not be the first.

The early adopters of any new product are generally enthusiests.
The mainstream consumer comes along later. Those are the ones that need to be informed of just what they are getting into.

We are not quite yet there. But at the rate we are being pushed into EVs, it won't be long.

While I am not anti EV, people (greenies & govt.) need to understand they are not for everyone and work in every situation. I read a similar story where the writer traveled from New Orleans to Chicago. They spent more time charging than they did sleeping.


I watched the news of the packed highways by people fleeing Hurricane Ian.
I wondered what would (will) happen if Just 50% of the vehicles were electric.
Will there be enough chargers to get people out of harms way?

I'm not opposed to electric vehicles. Like many, I don't like how they're being shoved down our throats. Hopefully they will have longer ranges in the near future.
