All it would take is one test drive and you'd be sold, too, Al. Driving an 'all torque, all the time' electric makes the internal combustion engine seem quaint and ponderous, not to mention dirty, smelly and noisy. Of course, some call those things virtues.
Congratulations, Steve! I thought we'd hear from Rodolfo by now, since he loves his Tesla too.
As far as those other virtues, I recently drove my brother's car for a few days when he was out of town:
(I wish I had gotten around to taking my own photos.....)
Not dirty or smelly, but wonderfully noisy. Pretty agile too (444HP helps there). Although I had a ball, with the track mapping enabled in the ECU, I was getting about 11 mpg.
Vrroooomm Vrroommm.....Now thats my kind a car....jus love a car with some muscle...but its gotta be low n have "that look"
Funnily enough ATM I drive a Mitsubishi 4WD, its turbo diesel but its got a bit of get up n go...regularly gets down to 9litres per 100kl, thats 22.6miles per US Gallon...not bad for a 2.5 ton SUV @ 66mph....
it really shines when I tow the Boat loaded up into the mountains..
There is one draw back though,....the stink of deisel when you fuel up, I keep a gardening glove in a zip lock bag stashed under the seat..
With the new Electric powered cars I cant help but wonder what it will be like in a few years,....when it needs a new battery...
Recently had someone espowsing the virtues of a Toyota Prius....claiming all sorts of wonderful mileage, ...however they were counting electric driving as well as the tank range.....DERRR...
When I pointed this out they were adament, & how wonderful it was for the environment...
Hower when asked if they were buying charging power from an Electricity supply company that had a Coal fired power station they were less vocal
heres the beast...
The Prius is not a plug in, but a hybrid
Petrol usage includes battery charging
How long do the batteries last? No idea but they do come with an eight year warranty
way to go
