That's funny [icon_lol2.gif]
Depending on how you are interpreting funny...it was meant as a sarcastic comment at the JDPower stuff talking about all the problems with EV's and my own experience. Very little. No one can say their cars are totally problem free. And with that not everyone has the same level of tolerance of what a problem might be that would need attention. I was running out of the bumper to bumper warranty and wondered what I could make use of. Oh I know, the windows make a barely perceptible bump going up. Get that fixed.
The battery was a proactive recall. I didn't specifically have a problem with it.
Lol just ask jay leno what first cars that ran on gas were like . It took along time to go from even a junk model t to something that was safe and reliable . . Its absurd to compare decades of engineering on a single mode of propulsion to not even ten years of development . Forgeting about cars for minute , ev bikes are everywhere and being sold at all price points from budget to over 10 grand , then ev scooters , short haul like open pit mines installing trolly lines to run ev dump trucks . The shipping containor port trucks are mostly ev trucks now .

And it's a heat wave. So companies are trying to help. The demand is everything needing power, not just EV's.
Interesting that the lack of acknowledgment by some to the fact that this occurrence is happening regardless of current structure and regions may lead to self aggrandizing by some.

You're mentioning this is an EV thread. It's not just an EV issue. Hot spells everybody wants cooling. Cold spells everybody wants heating. These extremes happen. Have happened. I won't get into frequency here, that's for that other thread.
And then I pointed out wording that was erroneous from that article.
I have also read articles where EV's have an advantage in the case of power outages. Gas pumps need power. Nobody makes gas at home. Power can be made at home. Also newer EV's can output enough power to keep necessities on and for quite a while.

A kink to proof would be nice.

Makes me wonder as Vanouvers truck drivers are up in arms about a mandate requiring newer trucks to access the container ports.

It is a way of transporting hydrogen without compressing or liquifying it. Long time ago before high pressure hydrogen was considered for vehicles, a transport chemical was considered. So, it is not a first, yet probably not the last either.

Si + 2H2O -> SiO2 + 2H2

That's criminal. I'd rather my provincial tax dollars go towards the provincial government build low cost/barrier housing. We need that in BC more than subsidizing the wealthy in an expensive EV purchase.
And my federal tax dollars go towards the Canadian military that needs new kit and way more support for vets. Subsidizing car purchases??? :cuss: :cuss: sphincters.

GM offers $6000 to Bolt owners if they promise not to sue them when their car catches fire and kills someone.
Good save...
