Exactely ,because ICombustion waste 70-80%of energy fed to it.
You must look at all picture.
Also maintainance costs, environmental costs.
Coming to electric vehicles forum like Endless Sphere and claim evehicle is vaporware is quite brave and I must say provocative.
It is like saying all what people ride here is vaporware.
So your title of your thread is NONSENSE by itself.
Unless, you don't understand what "vaporware" means.
Evehicles are for real and in everyday use.
Nissan Leaf is excellent commuter in the city, no vaporware.
Check in Webster dictionary what "vaporware" means.
I mean coming to evehicle forum with thread like that??
If you do not accept evehicles do not come to forums like that and post this.
Evidently you totally misunderstood what I was saying. I'm not saying electric vehicles are vaporware, I'm saying a lot of promises about electric vehicles, companies that have these awesome breakthroughs that get written about but never go anywhere are vaporware. No need to have such a nasty overtone to your post, you sound a lot like a crazy zealot.
Relax man. When I roll a bike it's an ebike, just wish I had others to ride with.
As for styling, I'm thankful that Nissan made the Leaf look pretty normal. I'm just sick of seeing the complete lack of good styling on cars. While it may be a subjective topic I believe most people agree that economy cars look pretty goofy, same goes with a lot of the electric stuff. If I was to buy a hybrid right now I'd buy an old Honda Insight which looks a little funky but is function over form and is the best mass produced gas/electric hybrid to date.
What I'd really like to see is something like a 1.5L-2.0L turbo diesel gas electric hybrid. Electric to get you going and around at lower speeds and turbo diesel making 150HP to make it fun to drive all in a sub 3000lb package. 100+ MPG should be a non issue.
