Thatís not what the man said. He said itís way more likely for an electric vehicle to start a fire in a garage than a ICE vehicle. Are you denying that?

A gas car is very unlikely to catch fire in your garage unless you can smell gas from a fuel leak so you wouldn't then put it in the garage with a hot engine.
Aside from the argument about which would more likely catch fire, there's the issue of which one can be put out more easily.

With firefighting methods, the only thing that can be done with a Lithium EV battery fire is to let it burn itself out and hopefully contain the fire. Very different from what can be done with a gasoline induced fire.

This also. A fire on an EV is almost impossible to put out however much water or extinguishant is turned on it and with reports of Tesla's flush door handles not working in such an event is concerning.

The only thing Iím aggravated with is your sides worship of government, forcing this on the people. Without that forcing electric vehicles would be nothing more than a novelty item that wealthy people would buy for fun. I must freely admit that does aggravate me. You seem to celebrate that though. More than celebrate I think. Mock it with humor even.

But why does it matter? If what Iím saying annoys you ignore me. Simple as that.

But I donít give 2 shits about your opinion, or your life your family or anything so what is the point?

If you hate ev thatís fine. Donít get one. But youíre going to be getting one sooner or later if youíre still alive at that point.

But constantly bitching on this forum is entertainment for me.

I donít hate electric vehicles at all. I think theyíre bad ass. I think Tesla and Elon musk are bad ass. Always have. I mean I do think Teslas are ugly but I also think Iím in the minority on that. And what I hate with an extreme passion and you seem to love is that the only reason electric vehicles besides Tesla are picking up steam is because itís being forced on the world population by laws. I do hate that. You love it. Thatís the difference.
As the technology improves, Iím sure Iíll buy one. More than likely it will be a BMW or a Porsche but Iím sure Iíll get one. Not because Iím forced to because I want to.

Bro your tune in this post is so opposite of your other posts regarding this subject.

When you post, and by you I mean everyone involved thatís against ev, are just creating aimless logic that will make it seem like this wonít happen.

Iím not saying ev and itís ďforcedĒ date is right. Iím not saying ev is better for the environment. I already said I donít give 2 shits about the environment. I had countless catless cars in the past. Polluting the air like no tomorrow. I donít give a fuck about the air.

Iím just saying if they have something set in place, instead of bitching, think about the positives of it and not worry about all the negatives. If you had an opportunity to make a change then do so. Will it work? Probably not but at least youíre trying.

But in the meantime as youíre waiting for this ďbackfireĒ about ev that wonít happen, think of ways you can benefit from this. Have your awesome ice cars for the weekend and get a badass fast ev for your daily commute.

Imagine having your 700whp m3 on the weekend and driving something as fast as a plaid Monday - Friday.


Sounds like a win win for the future.

Imagine only being able to afford one car, but you donít want an EV, whether it be because of preference or it not fitting your lifestyle?

What percentage of the population can't afford a new car, ever? They always buy used, and the prospect of a used EV with the ticking time bomb of a battery replacement is not something I'd want to contemplate. But hey, some people think the government knows what's best for us.

So you're saying by the year 2035 comes, they won't make even more affordable EV's?

Where are you making this assumption from?

Because you're seeing 50-60K tesla's and EV6's and plaids and taycans for 100+k?

You just proved my point that the mentality you guys have are based on events happening TODAY.

Every year this is getting better. However you want to think or assume about the infrastructure, or the grid, or charging capabilities or electrical fires happening at home is all nonsense.

We went from horses to cars and people thought that wouldn't work out.

We went from carbs to fuel injection and people thought that wouldn't work out.

We went from PURE ICE to hybrids and people thought that wouldn't work out.

Again i already agreed and said the whole "set date" on this thing isn't right. But we're here and the date is set so what are you guys really complaining about? Like really?

Your complaining is the equivalent of an NBA referee giving a technical foul on a player and that player gets mad and throws a tantrum like a baby, throws a fit, curses the ref and gets ejected from the game. What good did that do him? NOTHING.

Same principle here. It's already set in stone. Either deal with it or don't own a car in the future.

If I believed what I was told by the experts, I'd believe that EV replacement batteries would cost $2000-$4000 today, not the actual cost of $15,000-$25,000 (or more). The old "it will get cheaper" just hasn't panned out.

Blue sky Predictions < actual reality.

So where the various fuel MPG requirements. You know, the ones that kept getting kicked down the road and changed. The old stones were thrown out and new ones engraved.

When the Soylent green EV company releases their first model, he will be an early adopter, and staunch advocate.

He's also heavily invested in Brawndo, because plants crave electrolytes.
