Depends where that 60 mil went last night!Would you buy one Don?
So you're saying for best battery life only use 30% of your battery. That's useful.300,000 km degradation on average is not even 10%. Like all lithium batteries, operate between 20 and 80% and they last a very long time. Don't charge your phone/laptop etc past 80%, or use less then 20%. 40 to 70 is ideal. Lithium has no memory like nicads of old.
It does. My buddy who lives in the twin cities has one, his mom lives near Roseau MN. In the fall when he got the car he left home and drove to his mom's place on about 1 full charge. He made the trip again a couple of weeks ago when it was chillier out and he had to stop about 2/3's of the way back because he was on electrical fumes... Haha. He figured he had about 2/3 the life running on heat as opposed to running the air conditioner.So heating didn't cut into the range much? When combined with the battery warming system I imagine in our cold winters it could probably reduce the range by a fair amount compared to the summer.
Too dangerous, it will never take off.
Let’s increase my power by 5X and reduce fuel use to say, ah let’s just 1/2 it, 7L/100, you're still never going to exceed 2/3’s of Dino fuel cost for energy.0.23 in oz for electricity if you lucky
Just built into rental price although it was never brought up. Probably explains 500 km/day setting.
Not too many Joe-Schmo's driving around in natural gas or propane powered vehicles either.Diesel maybe.... gasoline like water, not so much.
No different than propane or CNG.
They also do it on their own. Charge the batteries to 100% and just leave them, after 10 days or something they automatically discharge to a storage level.With regards to lithium battery charge, its recommended by DJI that my drone batteries be stored at approx 80% or less to preserve longevity.
I'd rather be trapped in a vehicle with a propane tank that is venting and burning somewhere outside the passenger compartment than have a pool of gasoline underneath the whole car on fire......!!!Poke a hole in a gas tank then poke a hole in a propane tank and tell me what you'd rather be sitting on top of in the event of an accident.
That's funny too, my dad recently noticed the charging station a our local peavey mart..... he went inside and asked for his 5 dollar bill..... they looked at him funny, he said well if you're paying to charge electric vehicles.........Pisses me off that some businesses have free charging stations, such as peavey mart. If they are going to offer freebies to some customers, they should be putting a little gas into the rest of the customers vehicles to make things equal. No way the rest of the customers should have to pay for energy so the rich guy can run his Tesla.
Yup, just like diesel was cheap relative to gas in the 70's until people started buying diesel cars in creating the demand, then the price of diesel shot up to the same price as gas more or less. Then there was propane.SUPER cheap (in the .06/litre range) until people started to convert their cars/truck over to propane then, with the increased demand, propane shot up to near the price of gas. Same thing will happen to electricity if electric cars get any traction (no pun intended). The problem is, like in the past, consumer suffer greatly. Before diesel was used to any degree in cars, it was half the price of gas, now, all industries that rely on diesel (highway transport, farms, mining, logging etc) pay the inflated price for fuel and that added cost is passed on to end users (directly or indirectly). Before propane was used in cars it was dirt cheap but now, people who rely on propane are paying the inflated price brought on by it's use in vehicles and so it will be with electricity. Put an abundance of electric cars on the road and the price of electricity with skyrocket to the point that it will be more or less on par with gas and diesel but we will ALL be paying that inflated price at home. Not to mention that there is little if any emission saving s since that electricity has to be generated somehow. Just another big scam IMO and we will all pay the price in the end in spades.But that energy efficiency though...
