What stuff? NG as the standard fuel for gas style motors or do you want to wire the pistons so magnets drive them?

Batteries only need to do 50km/day, to go far you rent a 1 cylinder tow behind genset to boost the amps to long range with no stopping except once every 10 hrs to add a liter of NG

You live in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by mountains and you don't commute to work. If all of your driving is commuting in urban areas, driving a 50 km radius, electrics make all sorts of sense. They are all over the place, where I live. The Tesla badge is becoming more common than "Chevrolet" in Oakville.

It was recently brought to my attention that electric vehicles being silent can be a hazard to pedestrians with poor hearing and/or vision.

Look at what you've quoted and try to reconcile it with what you just posted, old timer.

In Europe, that are forcing them to produce some sort of sound. In a previous thread, we were talking about recording a little kid going "brrrrrrrrrrrr" and looping it with the car's computer. If I ever get one, I want it to burble and bubble like the Flubber Mobile.

Give those upscale EV owners millions of places to charge up.

If anything could revive the motoring vaca it would be EVs

No, liberal welfare recipients like that Johns are not too obvious when they are out hoping work will find them.
