Apparently better , faster , battery tech has been validated by a lab in israel

https://www.teslarati.com/storedot-100i ... alidation/

The 100in5 cell successfully completed 1,000 extreme fast charging cycles during an assessment in October. The cells were repeatedly charged from 10 to 80 percent capacity in just ten minutes and were then discharged for one hour before recharging. The company said no noticeable battery degradation was recorded until the first 600 cycles were completed.

Not even worth that. Looks like two scooters glued together. lol. Pretty useless, and barely good for commuting. Feel free to buy one.

That's right. Calling it a car is a spelling mistake.

Do you want a Ford Lightning EV? Best to wait. Winter range can drop by half.
When it comes down to it, another reason why mandates won't fly is the impracticality of most EVs, especially trucks.
More specifically, EV range numbers decreasing by as much as one-half in weather conditions barely hovering around freezing temps.

Nevera - This is a 4740lb car with a 120kWh battery (6960 cells), with a 'simulated' range of 550km. Very fast and good for winning short races.

Just a hot rodded golf cart right.

If I lived in a city would think that the E Fiat, or an E smart car would be great, 50 mile range & rent a car for those twice a year road trips.
Save a ton of money that the oil companies and car makers can get along without.
