About Those Electric Cars They Want You To Drive

Liberals want to make America a banana republic. But they expect you to drive vehicles that don't use "fossil fuels".
Why are they called liberals when they want to take away your choices in everything? Liberals are a single word oxymoron

The longest range electric cars of 2019: new EVs with the most charge
https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/electric/ ... c-cars-ev/

The average mileage is around 200 miles. But does this Average figure include hilly terrain or simply flat ground? And at what speeds are in their 200 mile computation? A more realistic estimation of mileage below.

The main reason that we conducted these tests is because official ranges are notoriously untrustworthy - they don’t take into account real world applications. From our real world testing, we can deduce that these electric cars are capable of providing around 85 per cent of the range compared to what manufacturers claim they can do. *** NEWS FLASH: These tests excluded air conditioning and heating battery drain. Both are battery hogs.

A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point. Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full. For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in ~35 minutes with a 50kW rapid charger.

Electric Car Charger Installation in Your Home: True Costs—and What You Need to Know (Some unpleasant data)
https://www.realtor.com/advice/home-imp ... e-charger/

The cost of installation is INCREDIBLY VARIABLE," says Lyuba Wolf, director of home solutions at ChargePoint, which builds hardware and software for charging electric vehicles. The age of your home, your electrical panel capacity, the type of installation, and where your electrical panel is located will all affect the final cost of putting an electric vehicle charger in your home.

For a Level 1 charger, the cost of the station will be $300 to $600, with parts and labor costing $1,000 to $1,700, according to HomeAdvisor. *The Level 1 charging station can recover 4 to 5 miles of range per hour.

A Level 2 charger will cost a bit more: The station will cost roughly $500 to $700, and the parts and labor will likely cost $1,200 to $2,000. The installation process COULD COST MORE if your main point of charging will require major electrical upgrades. How many times have you experienced something costing less than estimated?

Another cost to consider is permitting: Certain states require homeowners to get a permit when installing charging stations. In some places, you can get a $50 over-the-counter permit, while others will require as much as $200 and plans drawn by an engineer.
Sounds affordable if your home doesn't have to be rewired

The cost of the car.___ Will cars get cheaper when the tax mad Socialists put the factories run @ owned by the wealthy out of business?

The median electric car in the US is getting cheaper
https://qz.com/1695602/the-average-elec ... in-the-us/

Data analyzed by research house Cox Automotive show EV prices dropped from $64,300 to $55,600, a 13.4% decline over the previous year. Most of that is thanks to Tesla’s success selling the Model 3, which has a starting retail price of $38,990 before incentives. Tesla now dominates the EV market with nearly 80% of EV sales in the US. The drop would be even more pronounced if it were not for the fact that most legacy carmakers are still focusing on rolling out luxury EVs, such as the $74,800 Audi e-tron.
Pocket change, right? How about Socialism, Communism, or Marxism? I wonder how many citizens under those regimes can afford food, let alone electric cars. Just a consideration Since all the candidates want to adapt one of those systems.

Everything breaks in the real world. How much is the average cost of a replacement battery?

How much does it cost to replace a hybrid battery?
https://auto.howstuffworks.com/fuel-eff ... y-cost.htm

As for cost, most experts agree a replacement hybrid car battery can range anywhere from $1,000 to more than $6,000, depending on the year and model of car, and WITHOUT DEALERSHIP OR INDEPENDENT LABOR COSTS. For the past decade, the vast majority of batteries were made from a nickel metal hydride (NiMH) formula, but lithium-ion -- the new kid on the technology block -- may take over the hybrid world in the coming years. The shift from NiMH to lithium-ion will likely come with a price, both in terms of dollars and experimentation.

So, comrade, how long (Beyond food, clothing ,Housing, @ misc expenses) will it take you to purchase one when the demoncrap government tells you how much money you can earn? (Equal wage proposals)
