Electric Vehicles

Post: # 199676Unread post Gary Oak »

I am not pro or against electric vehicles however there does seem to be some issues with some of them. Electric scooters have been a blessing for many people with mobility issues. Here’s a couple short videos of electric vehicles going up in flames like spontaneous combustion. In the second one that guy dumping water 💦 on the shooting flame didn’t think about what he was doing. https://www.westernjournal.com/electric ... fd7232ad57

I wonder what the world will be like in twenty years. It’s going to be very different. I imagine these long lines for electric vehicles recharging will be figured out. Perhaps there will be a better form of transportation that will make cars obsolete.

Yep... this reality seems antiquated and just moves around in circles with small adjustments now and again but stays the same really.
Same old money making prison system...

I want a nuclear vehicle, a big one that take up the whole road with a plow on the front I can clear the roads with :laugh:
Clean energy compared to Electric, and getting the old cars off the road at the same time. :teehe:

Electric cars are filthy things, toxic, and a real big lie by people who toot green.
Name one thing green about them, nothing is green about them.
Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advise, and a good conversation.

Apparently electric trucks can’t tow even light loads without having to recharge constantly. The distance that they can tow is drastically shortened. A Ford lightning would be useless for pulling a trailer. https://www.westernjournal.com/joke-man ... fd7232ad57

That's the funny thing about load on a electric motor, the more load the more power it draws electric.
I used to know the math for it, but forgot that a hundred years ago, you can use it in calculating power consumption, and amps.

This journalist found out that it took five days to charge his truck at a campsite. He points out the difficulties this could cause travelling to a place like Alaska. https://www.westernjournal.com/journali ... fd7232ad57

Hurricane Ian exposed that electric vehicles often explode when flooded. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/water ... -hurricane

I like how the green nuts think they are doing good for the environment when their cars are filthy polluters.
The toxic mess of creating the batteries, and disposal of them and powering them up on fossil fuel made electric from power plants.

When they get into accidents the highway electrical current is very dangerous. Even for mechanics only special tools must be used.

A few have caught fire in the Hurricane Florida just had.
You would think the system would be sealed, and wrapped properly.

They perhaps thought that they had it water proofed enough. I imagine that they are looking at what caused these electric cars to explode and are now trying to find a way to remedy this danger. These cars inundated in the flood would have had every tiniest of cracks in the waterproofing tested.

Like most cars, and trucks now the electrical components fry when in water like a flood, the cars are useless after.
Back when I worked at the Ford Louisville Auto Plant we had a flood in the lot, all the trucks had to be scrapped because of water damage in the electrical systems.
The shame is I told them the lot was flooding, and they ignored me.

My guess a sensor, or anything electric could cause the feedback that burned out the batteries on the electric cars, it doesn't have to be a just wiring.
