    thats about 180 miles according to the google, within range of some of the newer electrics, as i said thay are not suitable for everyone due to their different needs, but theres always the range extender version,which adds miles , its just provided by a gas powered generator, its not used every day, just when you need it.
    and norway has 48% of its cars electric now, they get a little chilly over there i hear.
    charging stations are coming, just like mobile phone masts werent common................... before they were.

    I'll 100% jump on the electric car bandwagon if I can get something resembling an F150 or F250 that allows me to haul stuff around. Until then I'll probably be sticking with gas or diesel as that's what those things run on.

    I wouldn't say "great." Exemplary, perhaps.

    As an observer, your humanity and political beliefs don't coincide. I'd start taking lithium if I were you.

    eh, you'd be pretty surprised if you forget party lines for a minute. I have very little hate for anyone or anything outside the war room.

    Once the "cheap" Teslas become available you'll see more people gravitate towards them, but there are still lots of people who do require a truck for various tasks, and probably disproportionately so in red states. We ride in my buddy's Model X up to his cottage and it is definitely the coolest vehicle I've ever been in, we were driving in an ice storm once like it was a summer day and the acceleration is incredible.

    There are more and more public charging stations popping up in my main city. My office parking structure had plenty of spots. I plugged in my garage and charge was never a concern.
    We could have decent "green" vehicles already. Biodiesel has been a reality for over 10 years like hybrid engines. Whenever Algae is finally cracked we'll finally see the shift though since Exxon is balls deep in it.

    We could have plug-in hybrid Biodiesel trucks already but no!

    Electric motorcycles are a fair way behind in terms of being price and performance competitive, so I doubt I'll make the leap soon.
    On the other hand electric bicycles are improving hugely, and could extend my use of the treadly enormously. In fact the current major drawback is local legislation limiting the assistance to 250w (nominal) and 25km/hr.
