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.

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

EVs already cheaper in fleet applications

Government should be required to buy only Evs

HemerHOID IS CAUGHT OUT TELLING LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


If electric Toy vehicles are cheaper than gas vehicles for fleet applications...................................... ....


THEN WHY will Toronto Silly Hall ONLY APPROVE the purchase....................................


of electric TOYS AFTER LIE-berals............................................ .....


whether it be Wynne-bag Ontari-owe LIE-berals............................................ ....


or Our idiot Boy and his federal LIE-berals........................................


kick in GOBS OF SUBSIDY GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Electric Toys are ONLY CHEAPER AFTER THE SUBSIDIES KICK IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And making electric TOYS LOOK CHEAPER.....................................


by NOT COUNTING the subsidies......................................... .............


is nothing more than the usual............................................. .......


LIE-beral FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the FINAL IRONY????????????????????????????????


HemerHOID DOES NOT OWN an electric TOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


He told us last year.......................................

Just the usual two faced LIE-beral hypocrisy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Toronto Transit Corp has THREE TIMES NOW....................

Norway is a big oil producer but they're not rootin-tootin straight shooting, manly, manly climate change denyin' Teyeksus wannabee tough guys, like the oil industry people are here.

Maybe, their distance from the Exited States and TV Westerns have left them sane and thoughtful.

I'd love to see the EVs out perform diesel vehicles during a Norwegian winter. Get a bunch of them on the road in winter and you'd have a real cluster fcuk!

The Norwegian winter is less severe than ours. Most of them live near the sea and their coastline is bathed in the Gulf Stream.

Yes hemerHOID......................................... ....................


and you offer PROOF that throwing enough LIE-beral subsidies at something.....................................


CAN make it work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But there is the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!


It is the SUBSIDIES, STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


Cdns are the most over taxed people in the western world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


NO OTHER developed nation pays such a HIGH AGGREGATE TOTAL of taxes.....................................


as Cdns do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


LIE-berals are trying to pin a VIRTUE MEDAL........................................


onto their electric TOY vehicle CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Norway is a relatively small and quite MOUNTAINOUS country....................................


with much of the population living around THE SEA COAST............................................


and thus it is often easier to travel by ferry boat than by car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


Since the towns on the relatively warm sea coast are separated from each other by high mountains buried in snow............................



hence the Norwegian interest in ferry boats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



As always............................................ .....


LIE-berals LEAVE OUT various useful facts and information!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals say nothing about the size and scale of the Norwegian public transit system..................................


and LIE-berals say nothing about the number of ferry boats in Norwegian service....................................


and LIE-berals say nothing about the number of GAS POWERED Cars in Norwegian service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nor do LIE-berals have much to say about levels of CUSTOMER SATISFACTION......................................


among Norwegian owners of electric TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


WE KNOW that an electric TOY suffers a crippling loss of range whenever temperatures fall below 10 Celsius.......................


and much of Norway IS ABOVE THE ARCTIC CIRCLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


Clearly the Norwegians ARE NOT COMMUTING as Cdns do.............................................


not in that kind of cold..........................................


with their electric TOYS freezing up so quickly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


So many facts........................................


all being IGNORED by LIE-berals........................................


who EXCEL at publishing FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


And was it not hemerHOID who boasted to us once upon a time.............................


that Germany once ran on wind and solar power for an entire day?????????????????????


And was hemerHOID later TOTALLY SILENT....................................


when Germany decided that wind and solar power were costly job killing STUPIDITY???????????????????????????


And Germans did that BIG EIGHT BILLION MARK DEAL.............................................. ...


to buy Russian natural gas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!



WHY YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HemerHOID IS a purveyor of carefully EDITED LIE-beral Fake News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oakville.......................................... ...


the place where rich old folks go to die....................................


while waiting for Joe Clark............................................. ...................


WHO??????????????????????



To stage a comeback!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And hey...................................


I did not know Tesla made GOLF CARTS............................................. .


for Oakville seniors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So basically Comrade Curious is telling us....................................


there are LOTS of people in Oakville who OWN BOTH.............................................. ....


an electric TOY car for hauling groceries and grabbing Merlot at the LCBO...........................................


and they have some V-8 powered SUV............................................


for longer trips such as getting to the cottage so they can bomb around on their Sea-doos and ATV`s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


Last I heard Oakville had the highest average income of any Ontari-owe town!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


SO THEY CAN AFFORD to screw around with electric TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Such people dont generally keep a vehicle more than 5-6 years anyway............................


so they will sell off the Tesla TOY before the battery range gets to be a problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Typical LIE-beral virtue signalling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Buy the electric TOY and screw around with it for a while...............................


in between gas guzzling flights to Florida for golf etc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!

But hemerHOID will NOT tell us how many gas powered cars are sold in Norway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nor will he tell us how much TAX MONEY WAS WASTED................................


to "encourage" Norwegians to buy the electric TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And hemerHOID cannot tell us if the Norwegian LIE-berals will be getting PUNISHED...................................


in the next election.......................................... ....


just as Wynne-bag LIE-berals were.............................................



for offering those gross subsidies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!



And of course hemerHOID will not tell us how many Norwegians will ever buy another electric TOY.............................


once the REALITY of already limited range getting WAY WORSE as the electric TOY ages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


LIE-berals INSIST they are good with money........................................


and LIE-berals tell us green energy is our future.........................................



but if that were true................................


then WHY Wynne-bag LIE-berals have to tell SO MANY LIES.....................................


about the real cost of their mouldy green energy......................................


and why so many lies about the subsidies available for electric TOYS..........................................


meaning not just cars but electric TOY buses for TTC as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If LIE-berals really were good with money...................................


Wynne-bag LIE-berals would not have been caught out with that $16 billion dollar deficit..........................................


and Our idiot Boy would now be working with a balanced budget............................................ .....


instead of the $20 billion dollar deficit announced in the spring......................................


PLUS the $8 billion dollars in new spending/ election BRIBERY that has been recently announced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The same LIE-berals who cannot keep track of................................................ ....


or even come close to being truthful and honest ...............................................


about their own waste and extravagance....................................


are now telling us electric TOYS are good value and that we can trust their numbers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

Tesla launches own insurance business.

They are claiming to be 30% cheaper than the others.

Musk also saying that auto drive will force all insurance rates down - which I have been wondering about for some time.
