To the moderators here on BITOG, there should be a folder for Electric Vehicles. They are increasing in numbers, sophistication, and performance, and the prices are continuing to come down. There are sub-topics such as batteries, and charging stations that could be included in discussions in information about electric vehicles.

So, please start a folder for Electric Vehicles.

We could expand it to Hybrids and All Electric Vehicles.

Electric Vehicles are not real cars; they're appliances.

Tesla P100D is the only modern vehicle that interests me ... I have ridden in a Tesla and was very impressed with the GO factor. Not so much with the display, but it's the 2000's so what should I expect ...

I've got the itch, just not the budget or need frown

They will have lube issues like wheel bearings and such, so they should have a place here smile

Or maybe a Gen I Prius with an oversized battery, plug-in conversion and some tweaks to the motor, bilsteins, mag wheels and sticky tires for a grocery getter smile

There was a TV show (20/20, or 60 minutes, or some other documentary show, I can't remember which) that had an interview with someone who invented a lithium battery that can be damaged, cut, or penetrated with a piece of metal and not cause it to go up in flames. They demonstrated it by cutting one with a pair of scissors and not only did nothing bad happen, but that battery was still usable.

I did some searching on the internet after seeing that program but nothing came up regarding that safer lithium battery. I was wondering if anyone here on BITOG knows the name of the company featured in that TV program.

If you can get in it and it takes you to every where you have to go it is a real car.

There should be a folder for trailers and a separate one for brakes.

One for cell phones.

Maybe one for generators.

And one for trivial/nearly useless posts.

I really like the 2016 i3 we are leasing. The handling is very good and acceleration is more than adequate. Even taking into account the lease payment the car is saving us $250 per month; I haven't noticed any significant increase in our electric usage either.

And a Dodge Caravan is a thrilling driving machine? Electric cars aren't all Priuses anymore.
