Sure you've seen them, but 95% of EV owners 95% of the time, charge at home. Arrive home, 10 seconds to plug in, leave in the morning, 10 seconds to plug out every 3 or 4th day for most normal commuters.That must be why EVs are lined up in droves, to wait a long time, at recharging stations on long weekends.
EVs make up 0.6% of new car sales.
Over a year you lose less time than all those 5 to 6 minutes it takes to gas up. It's just a fact.
Before I actually owned an EV, I was head of the class for cynical EV jokes also, like an EV at the 24 hours of LeMans that races for the first hour, charges for 22 hours, then races the last hour ..... but now I will never own a gas vehicle again for my private use.
EVs are steadily increasing in sales constantly, add to that numbers of Nations have pledged no more fossil fuel cars from 2030, not sure I agree with that, but it's also a fact.
I also have a 2015 Tesla S-70D, delivered early 2016, and now 103,000 kms in it. I will take a different position to you, very cold days show a considerable and annoying decrease in range, and you know very well that a warning message flashes up on the screen warning you it will happen that cold day.I have driven my Tesla Model S-70D
I also own a Geely Emgrand EV and BYD E5 EV, 55,000 kms on each, same story on very cold days.
... which will require considerable additional weight, and there's your paradox.Future airliners that aren’t burning fossils fuels into the atmosphere will be designed to land at MTOW.
Basically ain't going to happen, I suspect hydrogen will be in some use by around 2030 based on current knowledge, which could change at anytime, or not.
