It's not really about saving money because at the end of the day it's a wash between petrol. You go electric strictly for carbon footprint, however in America unlike Europe electric vehicles do not work for better than 60% of the population and it has nothing to do with not having the infrastructure to support it. I live in a town with less than 1000 people and the local gas station just installed Tesla changing stations. (and you have to pay to use them)
The main problem is less people live in homes today then ever before. And if you live in the snow belt regions without a heated garage batteries don't do cold well. So while you possibly could run an extension cord out your window if you can't keep those batteries above 50 Fahrenheit you run into issues. My problem is as well the closest store to get groceries at a reasonable price and with variety is 50 miles one way, would like to have had the electric Smart but I would barely make it down.
And the ranges quoted are in optimal warm conditions, at 32 you lose around 40% range.
Like solar and wind, it's only part of the equation to be added in with the alternatives as they work very little for the overall mass's. But they work in the right applications. As far as electric vehicles goes the car company's are moving away from going all electric and are showing their skills in hybrid, truly the best of both worlds.
Fossil fuel is never going away, what is going away is personal car ownership. Because we will simply be priced out of the market. It serves the purpose of getting the cars off the roads, reducing emissions and saving the States money on repairing the roads. Don't ever be fooled into thinking the climate change hoax has anything to do with the environment.
We will be forced onto public transportation and if you have never seriously used that before you will be in for a rude awaking.
(oh death where is thy sting)
We be talking an hour to go 3 miles after waiting an hour, a loaf of bread and quart of milk requires a day ahead of planning. Do you like smelly people, crazy people, how about those who masturbate in public ?
Some scientist are now saying they think they know why America's life expectancy has been going down,,,stress ..
