That is what I'm talking about when I say those guys might have a point. I would be shocked and angry if it happened. But I don't know if I would be surprised. Governments could regulate the crap out of EVs making it too damn difficult for a manufacturer to produce them and make it down right illegal to ride a home built one. It was said before, first they laugh at us, then ignore us, and finally they will fight us. There are signs of big fights coming in some places with governments trying to make it more difficult to travel with EVs. An example here is myself and quite a few people in my town running E-scooters, E-bikes and a few small gas engine bikes. Right now, it's pretty darn great. Low speed but we still get where we have to go in a timely manner, with no need for a license, registrations or insurance. It's green, it's cheap and it's fun! It's paradise right now and we all have a big grins on our faces. But there is talk from some politicians that EV riders should have a license, have registrations and pay for insurance. Lemme tell ya! If that should happen, how much do you think a government will charge you for registering an EV when they know they won't get any tax money from you from burning gasoline? It took 100 years to make people sooo addicted to their fossil fuel vehicles, I don't know if I will see a dramatic change in our life time. As long as there's fossil fuel to be found, not much will change. But some of us won't loose hope, I know I won't. I am setting a good example for my 7 year old son right now. He says that when he grows up, he wants a Mustang..... But it has to be electric Change will come, but we won't see it. Until it happens, EVs are for a niche market, just like those guys said. Fine! I'd rather be part of the geeky tree hugers than one of the sheeps.
First he accused GM of “Kill(ing) the Electric Car.” Then he took “Revenge” and got buddy-buddy with the giant company that created the Chevrolet Volt. But Chris Paine, director of the new documentary, “Revenge of the Electric Car,” hasn’t faced off against our resident EV skeptics. This week John McElroy and Peter De Lorenzo will attempt to navigate the EV hype and get down to the heart of the matter: are electric cars really here to stay?
