My new custom built home has two NEMA 14-50 outlets in my garage and one on the outside corner for guest charging. I don't want an electric vehicle at this point in my life, but I'm set up for it.

Relying on the O & G Industry for my livelihood, I don't allow any visitors to the house that are driving an electric vehicle. grin

Now if I was still taking some work in the coal industry then I would consider it.

For North America and most of the rest of world, if each block gets 1-3 electric cars, the electricity supply system is going to fail - frequently. The first stop gap will be designated charging days for these cars, this might slow down the need for a total utility system upgrade.

You do realise that is just an Urban Myth?

I disagree. What does the system do when most people switch on their A/C units in the summer that consume as much power as a fast-charger? Also most charging will be done at night when peak demand isn't there, not so much during the day when people are at work. wink

I can buy three Toyota's for that kind of money. Gas is cheap and its looking like the electrics are going to bring the cost of oil down even more from what they are saying.

The Tesla is the rich guys toy here in Austin, so many of them here.

Now the soccer moms have the four door 45k Tesla, I see a lot of those also. Looks like a honda civic.

Lady I work with drives a Nissan Leaf to work, she bought it used for $7900.

And this is why most people don't own one. It doesn't make economic sense yet.

We'll see more electric cars when manufacturers figure out how to make a reasonable profit on the sale of each vehicle without the aid of government give away programs and political monkey business. The government must refrain from picking winners and let the marketplace take care of that.

Henry Ford was the beneficiary of the perfect storm. Elon Musk is missing a few pieces.

They need a realistic recording of a lopey cammed engine coming from the car at idle and for acceleration until that that expectation has been conditioned out of most of our minds

crackmeup

When I'm in my bosses it feels like the engine has stalled at the lights. Then sounds like the alternator whirring when you take off. It's an experience.
