    Can I drive a plug-in-hybrid without the gas engine kicking in? This is a question that comes up from time to time. Actually the plug in hybrids are about as close as some people are going to get to ev's for a while because EVS are going to be in short supply for the next 5 years at least...

    That's fine because we have our self imposed emotional limitations. I faced that with Lady Gaga until I saw A Star is Born and realized her talents and beauty. Clearly self imposed emotional limitations that I had copied from other people prevented me from seeing EVs are not about going green as...

    This is my take on EV rebates etc. The reality that the ICE vehicles are slip sliding away just hit me a couple years ago. My ignorance on the subject is still high but less than when I was not an EV owner.

    Since there's no need for EV subsidies per Tesla's CEO Elon Musk is it now your view EVs are a great idea? Tesla buyers get no tax breaks since 2018 and there is up to a year wait to get your order shipped. $7500 rebates are still in place for automatic makers until they sell 200,000 EVs. The...

    Funding the sales of EVS in the United States only causes harm. There is no shortage of demand for EVS just the shortage of batteries to build more EVs. The last time around this was tried a lot of people got electric golf carts basically free by putting headlights and turn signals on them...

    Fossil Fuels’ Hidden Cost Is in Billions, Study Says (Published 2009) Humans killing humans in the the name of progress is nothing new. Do you think long term EVs will be as deadly health wise to humans as the ICE is today?

    I know a guy who likes his China tractor. I know two guys that like their iPhones. Farmers can't put out a crop without ChinaChem. In the USA we worship our Harbor Fright and Walmart buying trips and sold China a chunk of our meat packing industry and movie industry. 100% of world vehicles...

    Per Elon Musk the only place that you can get everything you need to build an EV is in China. China owns several of the European car names from yesterday and per Sam's video China plans to start building Volvos and Polestars in the USA. I read Tesla built in China cars are preferred over...
