We only have 8 and 1/2 years to the ban on the sale of new petrol or diesel powered cars Andy.........so the technology better start moving on quickly and the infrastructure development REALLY needs to get a move on.

What entertains me most about this is that we are already near breaking point in our electricity supply capacity and the new power stations that need to be built to provide the electricity to charge these cars, haven't even started to be built yet - most of them are stuck in the planning and financing stages !!

The irony of this is probably that most of the "electric" cars in sold 2030 will have on-board IC engines generating the electricity that gives them their motive power........and the policies in favour of electric cars are all about not burning petrochemicals for propulsion.....what a joke !!

The whole electric car industry needs a real kick up the ass to get moving on workable NEW solutions for electric vehicles, instead of focussing on fine tuning the battery/charging technology that's been used for over a decade now, almost unchanged in principle since the launch of the Nissan Leaf.

But how many smile per $ or smiles per mile for each?!

$80k for a 200 mile range? Not for me....

I’ll go $35k for a 400 mile range....next year....

The airplane has about $30K into it and will have a ~400 mile range. The 1998 Saturn in the background was bought for $500 and also has a ~400 mile range.


Search for EV pusher trailer.  There is a cool one made out of the very back of a VW bug pushing a Mitsubishi EV.  It can even let the vehicle recharge by riding the regenerative brakes!

That is an excellent metric - and why a 1998 Saturn comes out ahead of a Tesla!  Both of them fall short of the FJ and any airplane though.

Speaking of Teslas...

When I see one approaching...  all I see is the face of Lord Voldemort in that front end design.


You're welcome.

The entire plan hinged on the natural curiosity of potatoes.

1989 FJ1200 that I somehow managed to own twice...  Fast approaching 73K miles.
