I wouldn’t get an electric vehicle maybe just me being skeptical but it even having a laptop on your lap has led to cases of testicular cancers an what not imaging driving in a fully electric vehicle producing it’s power from a big battery the levels of radiation have to have some effect in the long run , imagine a faulty battery being driven by a woman through out all 9 months of pregnancy definitely wouldn’t be good . Cancer cases an other health problems will soon emerge

One last element – you don’t have to pay anything for fuel for a desiel vehicle. You can grow and run on your own fuel; a deseil can run on vegitable oil; you can even buy the hemp or soy from a farmer and cold press your own fuel. Many gas cars are rated now for up to 50% ethanol – so you can also make your own. Also – a point you forgot is – most people don’t have their own garage to do home charging OPPS ; most people don’t have a garage; park on the street or live in an apartment building; so for those people EV superchargers mean they are stuck with very high charge costs if they buy and EV.

Obviously the cost of gas compared to electricity varies due to the price – in Saudi Arabia or Legos Nigeria its 0.78 cents and 39c a gallon compared to the US currently at $5 – Home charging also bypasses road taxes – States Like Washington St are starting to tag EVs with an Extra road tax of hundreds a dollars a year. Another Hidden tax of EVs is their high cost – with that high cost goes higher licensing fees and higher insurance costs – which way more than make up for gas costs.

Awesome. So get rid of gasoline engines and go to electric battery operated cars. Next let’s put the same taxes that were on fuel on electric and no matter if the electricity is used for a vehicle or not it still gets taxed!! Just wondering how many other people see it that way as well

Great Video. Let me mention that NONE of the home chargers charge at the rate they claim. There is a 20% loss going from source current to the battery. The national KW rate then is 15 cents not 12cents as a result. The US has different pollution ratings for it’s electric grid, so EVs are using dirty fuel even if they don’t emit much pollution. But they do pollute and that pollution is the reason that there are fires. ALL BATTERY charging emits Hydrogen gas. I’ve seen batteries blow up due to that gas. Climate Scientists are warning about Hydrogen’s effects on the Ozone layer, and of course they are being silenced. And then there is the 41% loss of range in Winter driving and the 19% loss of range in Summer Hot Weather driving.

It is recommended that the battery packs not be charged above 80% capacity. At that point the charge rate slows dramatically. The last 20% to get to 100% takes about the same time as getting up to 80%.

There is some disagreement about how low a battery should be charged. Hybrid owners of the Prius got some major shocked when they ran on snail mode and then had to replaced the entire pack. Seems to me that relying on 10% as the low point of charge gives ONLY 28 miles or so reserve range. There are NO rescue trucks that I am aware that will come to a dead (or very low such as say 2%) EV and recharge it in the field.

AAA started to equip some of their road service trucks with EV chargers but have since abandoned that idea (so I’ve heard).

People should realize recharging stations will look more like drive in movie lots rather than current petroleum stations.

Did you mention the IDLE fees for staying plugged in after the charge is complete? And as a last tidbit, there is no current standard for payment. In Europe a person may need several accounts. The solution for that is coming though.

Some states already charge and annual fee for lost road tax. Most seem to be charging $250. Illinois had proposed $1100 but settled for far less. Since an EV is typically 1,000 lbs heavier, and has far greater horsepower taxes need to be charged considering those factors.

DC Fast charging DOES cause battery capacity loss especially if used frequently and above 80%.

Batteries do not produce electricity – they store electricity, which is produced elsewhere, especially by coal, uranium, ground-gas-powered power plants or diesel-powered generators. So the claim that an electric car is a zero-emission vehicle is not at all true.
Since forty percent of the electricity produced in the United States comes from coal power plants, forty percent of electric cars on the road are coal-based.
But that’s not all yet. Those of you who are passionate about electric cars and a green revolution should take a closer look at the batteries, but also wind turbines and solar cells.
A typical electric car battery weighs a thousand pounds, about the size of a travel suitcase. It contains twenty-five pounds of lithium, sixty pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds of cobalt, 200 pounds of copper and 400 pounds of aluminum, steel and plastic. There are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells inside.
To make each EV battery, you need to process 25,000 pounds of sole for lithium, 30,000 pounds of resin for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds of resin for nickel and 25,000 pounds of copper for the copper. All in all you need to dig 500,000 pounds of the earth crust for a battery.
The main problem with solar systems is the chemicals used to convert silicon into the silicon used for the panels. In order to produce sufficient pure silicon, it must be processed with salic acid, sulfur acid, salpetic acid, fluoride hydrogen, trichlorethane and acetone. It takes massive amounts of coal to produce solar panels.
In addition, gallium, arsenide, copper indium gallium dieselenide and cadmium telluride are needed, which are also highly toxic. Silicone dust poses a threat to workers, and the plates cannot be recycled.
Wind turbines are the nonplusultra in terms of costs and environmental destruction. Each windwheel weighs 1688 tons (which is equivalent to 23 houses) and contains 1300 tons of concrete, 295 tons of steel, 48 tons of iron, 24 tons of glass fiber, and the hard-to-earth rare earth neodym, praseodym and dysprosium. Each of the three blades weighs around 81,000 pounds and has a life span of 15 to 20 years, then they must be replaced. We can’t recycle used rotor blades, they, along with used solar panels go into landfill.
These technologies may have their place, but you have to look beyond the myth of emission freedom.
“Going Green” may sound like a utopic ideal, but if you look at the hidden and inconsiderate costs realistic and unbiased, you’ll find that “Going green” is doing more harm to the Earth’s environment than it appears WHEN YOU LOOK THROUGH THE SMOKE & MIRRORS.
I’m not against mining, electric vehicles, wind or solar energy. But I show the reality of the situation.

Dont buy electric cars people, hold put for hydrogen vehicles. Electricity will go up because infrastructure cant handle that much. Plus when your car runs out of charge on the highway u will need it towed since u cant charge it on the side of the road. Also how will most people charge during black outs?

EVs are essentially high powered cars and should be seen as such, like buying a suv/sedan/coupe with a V8 biturbo. Reliability and ‘green’ dont really enter the conversation as EVs use lithium batteries. Also, NEVER EVER buy an EV if you live in a cold place, like Canada. Its actually extremely dangerous to operate an EV in subzero temps, especially Tesla’s that use induction (not resistance) heating. Basically, you will not be able to heat a Tesla below -10C. At all. I mean, the cabin temps will be around -8C as the induction system is built to conserve energy heating the cabin in California, not Alaska. You also will have a hard time keeping charge stable at -15C if the car is outside, so it is almost required that you keep a Tesla in a heated garage while charging, unless you want to spend many extra kwh charging.

My Ford Fiesta gets 40 MPG (in town driving, more for long haul driving) I fill my tank up once a month. The new combustion engine is more fuel efficient and cleaner burning than any EV on the market. And they don’t have the issue of where the battery comes from or where to store it once it does wear out.
