This after your horrendous experience with the "chinese sailing ship" ?OK I'm about to do something really stupid. Spend about 12 grand importing some bikes(at least I hope it's only 12 grand)...Anyone here familiar with importing a 20 foot container of stuff from China?
I want electric vehicles available in North america that are in production that are
1) 4 wheeled
2) 4 seaters
3) has trunk space for groceries
4) Is NOT A NEV i.e. highway speed capable.
5) Not a conversion
6) Isn't a myth.
Haven't you guys been following the Phoenix? You should look here:The reason I offer this solution eventhough you want a prefab, is because they will not manufacture such vehicles ever. The next step for them is to sell us hydrogen, because they want to keep selling us something.
Why not build a roof to cover the roads as well( at least through residential and city areas. It'll keep the snow off. You could mount light weight solar panels on them to generate electricity
Fine ideas, but I think too expensive to roll-out on a large scale basis. Like other large networks, something like these may come into being piecemeal, over many decades.What we really need is a better way of accessing electricity as we travel.
Something like an electric trolly line network that can be used by cars(trucks really) and buses.
That's not what was meant. Those elements of transportation systems are only available over very tightly constrained spaces and times, and as public transportation modalities, require abrogating the freedom to travel alone or with people of one's choosing.Progressive cities have these, millions of people use them daily: they are called subways, metros, monorails and elevated trains.
Not me (ok, it's not beside the road, but I've been waiting ages to plug my lawnmower conversion )TylerDurden wrote:If you really want to consider budgets and the health of the planet, consider how much foreign-oil we taxpayers put into the atmosphere by cutting GRASS by the millions and millions of miles of roads in this country.
Not intentionally Took me a bit longer than planned to finish the conversion, the grass getting steadily taller was just the motiviation I needed.TylerDurden wrote:Didja let the grass get that tall just for the video?????
That's 36V of MY1020 power in that video Maybe you should overvolt the B&DTylerDurden wrote:For small stuff I have a 12V B&D cordless mulching mower, but it would gag on the tall grass in your video.
