All one has to do is acknowledge the amount of Government subsidy that's going into trying to popularize EV's to see that this is all about politics and optics, and has zero to do with the environment.
If I had to choose between an oil leak and a nuclear meltdown, hmmmm.....
Considering that pathetically weak response, I'd surmise that Petros is right on the money.
It's like a religion with you, isn't it. You just can't deal with anyone pointing out the major flaws in your foolish, poorly thought out belief system.
Hilarious. Two provinces make up Canada and there'll be 34 charging stations between them? Christ, how efficient ARE these piece of crap EVs? I could drive from North Bay to the other side of Manitoba on two, maybe three tanks of gas. Are there even 34 gas stations along that stretch of the Trans-Canada?
Not quite. For example, if you buy a Tesla you'd have to drive the car for 8 years before it became carbon neutral.
Don't worry, there will be an electric pickup in less than 10 years.
But if you are low on fuel, there is likely a gas station close by. And if you do run out, you can walk with a gas can to the next one or call CAA. Electric ones your only choice would be a tow truck or to carry a real long extention cord.
20 minutes for a limited charge. Still too long when winter can kill you in 5 minutes.

Really? In that case you could probably freeze to death while filling your gas tank. You really are clutching at straws.

That was a problem for the first automobiles as well. A number of them ended up being towed home by a horse. But somehow they overcame that minor obstacle. With a network of thousands of gas stations already in place adding an electrical charger should not be difficult.
Did the government build the first network of gas stations?
What do you suppose has stopped the addition of those electrical chargers?
Have you noticed that those ideologues in the forum who promote electric cars don't even own one?
Probably don't even know anyone who owns one?
A Toyota Hybrid of an acquaintance of mine averages the same yearly miles per gallon that I do with my gas only automobile.
The only reason he bought it it was as a status symbol,
He wanted to be the first one in Kap with one...
The only reason he's keeping it is because of the big bucks he paid for it!
34 whole charging stations.... Why, that ought to accommodate a few dozen cars at least!
The efficiency drops as the weight of the load increases... Throw a passanger in and maybe a kid in the back and your range drops... Think twice about packing along any luggage.
The spent batteries are loaded with all kinds of toxic nasties and heavy metals that are not recyclable in perpetuity and they will need to be replaced every number of years.... Your average run-of-the-mill greentard is oblivious to this fact
