Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles have been around a long time, cars in the late 1800s and everything from locomotives to golf carts ever since. Now it appears electric propulsion is returning to the roads there will be plenty of good, bad and ugly. It's a given there will be schemers and scammers too.

I'm sure the Mustang is legit but I don't see a mileage between charges number. I suspect it's a fraction of 1. :haha:

Early electric shoots at the flying mile...

60 would be pretty scary in that rig.

GM announced a bunch of new electrics from every division, many to be sold in China and Europe.
One of the currently hot click-bait headlines is China's building a million mile battery.

A small 4wd pickup would be cool. I bought an 80v electric mower, the thing works well so far and not having another can of gas around is a plus.

Says it all:

"Tesla tops Toyota to become largest automaker by market value. Tesla just became the world's most valuable automaker, after the electric vehicle company's market value surpassed Toyota's...'

Tesla has no intention of being the biggest car company, Musk just wants to move the ball forward on electric vehicles, robotics, and humanity's space faring future, no big deal. ;)

Unlike that doorstop Musk built, this truck take advantage that slab & cab to put together what you need.

This is the way of the future, but its harsh edges create drag and thus reduce range. In particular, the overhang on top of the windshield has to go.

Closest thing I've seen to a micro bus. Those tan ones look really cool. I vote to keep the brim spoiler. Looks right.

Griff 07-31-2020 07:27 AM

I vote yes.

Yes, the 'jelly mould' look and trying to make the car invisible to the air is old thinking aerodynamics-wise. Look at some of the current cars with the lowest cD figures. Nowadays, thanks at least in part to a better understanding of the coanda effect, it's all about controlling the airflow. I'd guess that the roof level splitter on the van above is to help deflect air around the vehicle rather than over it.

Attachment 71132Kandi says they're coming to Texas but looks like they have some hurtles to get over first.

Now that everyone will not be buying gas I'm interested to see how they'll make up the lost tax revenue?

Gravdigr 08-04-2020 07:00 PM

Traffic citations?

That's pretty much maxed out buying armored vehicles and weapons.
