I plan on winning Lotto Max by 2025. WHo do you think has better odds of meeting their goal?

How did you reach that level of stupidity? Gas or diesel vehicles just need a can of fuel dumped in when they run dry. Readily available almost anywhere. Electric cars OTH are like a complicated version of propane or NG fired. A can of electrons is never readily available and it takes hours to recharge.

How do judge range when in Canada you can see 30C temperature swings in a matter of hours.

Not true at all.

The funniest part is that internal combustion engines have batteries in them too.

So what happens when that goes dead?

Put more gas in it?

CAA...the same CAA that will bring a vape battery so you can get high while waiting for a gas powered generator to get you to the next charger.

As usual your ignorance of the way the world is changing leads to stupid posts. There are already emergency booster kits for electric cars and electric cars can do something gas and diesel powered cars can't. They can plug in at any electrical outlet rather than having to get to a gas station. Hell, they can even be recharged by a generator.

Wakie wakie hands off snakie.
You are dreaming if you think it's ANY outlet.

Like phones and tools, plugs batteries chargers and accessories are proprietary and are 240V and up.

Tesla is building out its own proprietary charging network. Many electric car owners will charge up mostly at home, but analysts agree that more chargers will need to be built at public places and at work locations to help electric vehicles become more mainstream.Apr 26, 2018

Would that be an electric powered generator? Just askin. Gas and diesel powered vehicles can be refilled anytime any where. Your total ignorance of reality is truly astounding.

From someone I know with first hand experience, at 110V it can take day s to get a full charge for a Tesla. I roll up to a diesel pump and put over a 100L in & that takes a minute and a 1/2? A friend of ours left Calgary where he bought his car and it was day three that he made it into Regina. Took a night charging at 110V at a hotel in Lethbridge and another 36hrs or so at another friends place in Swift Current (110V) in order get to Regina. I leave Regina with less than a full tank and I'm still in Calgary in seven hours or so depending on pee breaks....

Read what I wrote again. He bought his Tesla in Calgary. It didn't have a full charge when he bought it. Before you toss out insults, read what was written. I got the information that I wrote first hand from someone who owns one of these things. How about yourself?
