    You can actually makes cooling fans louder and make them respond to acceleration pedal as they will give feeling of gas cars in electric way and it will help batteries cool too

    "Eco friendly." Yes... apart from the bit where the batteries are built, and all the materials to make said batteries are mined out of the ground, and then in 7 years or so when the battery that can't be recycled has to be replaced with another battery that's built. Not to mention how the electricity to recharge that thing is produced in the first place. Simple truth is, the national grid is at capacity every winter. We don't have the electric to support electric cars. And if you removed all the ICE cars tomorrow and just had electric, the emissions that were from the ICE cars would be made by the power stations instead, but that's moot anyway because, we don't have enough electric!

    Mike, you might be interested in reading the following article written by the National Grid. It actually says the grid reached peak demand back in the early 2000s and that if everyone in the UK switched to EV tomorrow, we would still have enough capacity: www.nationalgrid.com/stories/journey-to-net-zero/5-myths-about-electric-vehicles-busted

    ​@rob allen Like you, I don't like the direction that society is heading in... but I think the examples you give are wrong... and you're a bit cranky. You're entitled to your opinion about the human race, but it just has nothing to do with electric vehicles. There's nothing about an electric motor that is ground-breaking new technology. Nearly all of the advancements made to make EVs viable are done on the cost & manufacturing side of the equation. EVs have nothing to do with any of the things you're complaining about. They're certainly not an indication of laziness. They make better cars, in nearly every metric, at a lower cost.

    14 დღის წინ

    @rob allen Well, if your intent wasn't to insult, then explain how it added to the conversation? Having the wheels driven by an electric motor vs an internal combustion engine has nothing to do with hard work or dedication or shortage of apprentices in the UK or helicopters. Those aren't even good analogies for the topic at hand. They're just random things you're complaining about...
