    Actually, if the argument is coal vs. electricity and which type of car emits more emissions.....not many give a hoot. It's not going to change a thing.

    If buying electric cars makes you feel better about yourself, rock on and enjoy it. Just don't ask others to help pay for it is all I'm sayin'.

    I am, you have NOOO IDEA ;) . I jump on cracks, never look both ways before I cross the street, refuse to carpool, only mow my grass on ozone days, and never look before I leap.

    I beat a smart car yesterday. That's .5 of a win right? Makes my car look like a land boat.

    In the words of my grandmother..."I fluffed" near a smart car the other day and this happened. I am ashamed and astonished at the same time!

    It took him six days to tell me where to put the dedicated outlets behind the HT cabinet.

    That doesn't surprise me Russ. Dan knew the dimensions of my DIY subs better than I did... and I was the one who built them... I'm being totally serious here!

    LMAO....takes him 7 to return a PM. Boy has to investigate the IP address, where you went to High school, who your friends are, police reports, and if you ever dated his sister. :)

    I saw one of these once when I was a kid. It was only parked, though. right side up. not exciting.

    The amount of ignorance in this thread is a little surprising. I expect it from PFB, but some of the others spewing crap that they once saw/heard in the paid-for media is a little disappointing.

    Hey Sal, question for you. They say evs have x amount of miles per charge, is it also based on time/ hours. If I'm stuck on the highway for 2-3 hrs because of an accident I'm thinking I might not be able to make it home.

    Especially in the winter when you need the heat going and windshield wipers....headlights on...and you left work with a 30% charge left for use.

    I never even thought about that. How does an electric car create heat? Creating heat with electricity takes a lot of energy, look at space heaters that plug into the wall. They pull hundreds and hundreds of watts.

    I wasn't asking to be an a$$. I am very interested as to how they really hold up in the cold added with traffic and heat and lights and radio and heated seats (if they have them)

    Not sure, maybe Sal can answer that. I do know on principle that they also generate electricity themselves to some degree, but the car has to be moving, least I thought so.

    Last thing I want, speaking only for myself, is one more thing to think about at the end of the day. Who wants to have to plan your route around available charging stations.....daily ?

    Stuff comes up. Say you have to leave work, run home and grab the dog for a vet appointment. Run the dog back home and quickly get your rear end back to work. Now when you go to leave work you have less available battery power than you had planned for.

    Then what ? Look for the closest recharging station ? What if it's bad weather ? Traffic is horrible or when you get there it's out of order....surprise. Too many variables, too many different circumstances to account for at the end of the day when all you want is to go home and chill.
