EVs or electric vehicles has only been successful to the EV fanatics for the past decade, but already people are trying to push them onto everyone and wanting to end the gasoline engine one way or another, most likely banning them from being on the roads.

Some others are doing away with all vehicles while others are constantly saying EVs will take over the automotive industry. But the truth is no one really wants them. Dealerships are keeping gas vehicles in the front and the little EV collection they got is in the back and the vehicles are never charged. Which of course would be happening everywhere if it wasn’t always a topic of conversation in the social media. Car magazines are always talking about new EV vehicles even though people don’t want to hear about them. And really Tesla boasts about faster acceleration times and little maintenance.

One thing that isn’t talked about is how much of a pain it is to actually own one. First off they’re terrible in the cold, especially if you don’t have a garage. The solution, turn down the heat. That doesnt help those who want to blast the heat to stay toasty in subzero temps.

The other would be, you only have to drive 20 miles, grab a bite to eat while your car is charging. Oh so the money you save on gas will go to a $15 meal. You are not saving anything there when you could be somewhere else not spending your hard earned cash or would rather spend your money on an Amazon item. Whatever the case is, electric cars are trash in the cold. Efficiency in gas cars is only bad when the vehicle is cold but they warm up in 10 minutes essentially returning your efficiency.

Long recharge times. The solution, charge it at home. Does no good when you don’t have anywhere to plug it in. Somehow EV enthusiasts think that everyone has a garage or something magical to recharge their vehicle while parked on the street. One guy with a Tesla ran out of battery power and recharged his car in someone’s outdoor power outlet. If that’s not enough… you got someone driving a gas car pulling a diesel generator just to recharge your EV. The future is stupid. Because at some point you’ll have a power outage and have nowhere to charge your EV. Case in point California pressures people into EVs then cuts the power. At least gas stations have backup generators. For some reason the EV crowd doesn’t know that one either.

Also they either can’t keep up with battery production or they dont have enough materials to create enough of the batteries. Either way, the price won’t ever go down. Not at least until, if they come out with another battery type or whatever and that will be artificially priced high for quite some time.

Now i get we can’t keep using gasoline because at some point we’ll run out and having cleaner air is something we could use and need but gasoline cars isnt an issue right now and we got plenty of gas to go around.

But the bottom line is that electric vehicles won’t be a viable replacement to gasoline for at least several decades. By 2050 there may be other options that hasn’t been considered or invented yet. To ban gasoline vehicles you are going to disrupt the economy in a bad way where it may have trouble recovering from. Already Audi has plans to cut 7,000 workers all in the name of producing more EVs when EVs are only a minor market. They’re expecting a surge of people to buy EVs even though sales has dropped both in the US and China. It’ll most likely stagnate and drop as more people are finding out that their EV resale value drops considerably. They’re going to think twice before buying a new EV and most likely will buy a gas vehicle.

No one wants a used EV when they have no clue if they’ll have to replace their $7,500+ battery if they will buy one. Another words the EV market will remain secluded to the EV enthusiasts. And with many major automakers spending tons of money on EV production its going to be an EV disaster that will most likely be really bad. At least many hope it will fail. Since people like me refuse to buy one if that’s all the automaker will offer the vehicle sales will tumble because nobody has time to wait for their vehicle to recharge, nor will they remember to plug it in at home if they got the capability not to mention you’ll most likely be plugging into a dirty electric grid and still be polluting.

I’d prefer to wait for a truly better car technology in which still takes decades of results for viability.
