> maybe, just maybe you can make it from Seattle to Portland with the heater off and 55 mph.
huh? That's around 175 miles. Several EVs today can make that trip ripping along I-5 in the left lane with the heater running full in the Winter. The Bolt & all three models from Tesla, for example.
I have a four-year old Tesla which has been through that stretch of I-5 many times.
> Charged with low tech, fossil fuel energy,
Huh? In the northwest, most electricity comes from hydro. But, still, I don't understand your point. Virtually vehicles on the road today run on fossil fuels.
> saddled with hazardous, expensive chemical batteries controlled by China,
Huh? Panasonic (Japanese) and LG Chem (Korean) provide the bulk of batteries used by EVs in North America and Europe. The batteries for Tesla's model three are assembled in Nevada. LG Chem has battery plants in the USA, too.
I agree with you. But I don't see any trolls in this thread. All who have expressed their opinions so far are senior members.Don’t feed the troll gentlemen
Some day, when it is actually needed, an alternative energy source will be invented for the electric or fusion car. Just not yet.
mb513, I was triggered by this false statement from you: "maybe, just maybe you can make it from Seattle to Portland with the heater off and 55 mph"
Were you unaware that there are several EVs that have been available on the market for some time that can easily do this?
I am confused by your posts. You wrote that there are no EVs that can drive between Portland and Seattle at more than 55 with the heat on.How childish. Its 15% shorter than the range of the Tesla 3 as tested by EPA. So maybe you could make it. Now you are a keyboard warrior for calling someone a troll with whom you disagree. Good for you.
