Electric motors are way better than internal combustion engines. The reason you do not see electric motors in many cars is the power source. Electric motors depend on batteries and internal combustion engines depend on gasoline. Gasoline has way way way more energy density than a battery. If someone came out with a relatively cheap battery that had the same energy density as gasoline, in 15 years almost all cars on the road would be electric.

2014 Kia Sorento
2009 Ford Focus

I have been really impressed with the Sorento and will probably replace the Focus with an Optima

Yeah... sure.....

And where exactly are you going to get all this cheap, abundant electricity????

What do you think -- "I'll plug it in at home"????

Do you think houses generate electricity?????

You think you're gonna charge it with a 3 foot solar cell?????

Fucking people are so ignorant of basic facts.


The power grid is now at BEST running at 60 percent capacity. No new coal, or nuclear plants are being built, or scheduled to be built.

And you want to add every car's energy need to the grid demand too????

Fucking astounding....

RE: What's your wheels?
Yes

At this point, most electric cars are, in fact, coal powered by default, since that is where most power still comes from. They are dirtier and less efficient than your typical gas guzzler. In other words you're not driving a more environmentally friendly car, you're just relocating the carbon emissions to make you feel better among those ignorant enough to not understand how it works. And in the process you also create a dependence on lithium, yet another scarce resource.

Don't forget that the process of producing these vehicles creates more carbon pollution than it could ever offset

RE: What's your wheels?
The SO and I have picked up a couple more cars.....

We got a 1997 Saturn SL2 -- with only 61,000 miles on it - and zero rust.

[Image: 3980040002_large.jpg]

And the latest --

A 2002 Saturn SC2 three door (a rear seat door, behind the driver's door) --- with 150,000 miles and no rust. Now if I can just get the SO out of it, I'll get to drive it.....

This makes for Saturn #7 we've owned (still own 5).

Those things are the worst to have coming up beside you at night... The headlights are so close together that it looks like any other car does much farther back... Except it's not far back.. It's already beside you. Do you find you get cut off more than with other vehicles?

RE: What's your wheels?
Here in the Dominican Republic I drive an 8 passenger van built originally to be used as a taxi, therefore I do just that. I am not a licensed taxista, but do airport pick ups etc to add to my Social Security. The old bus needs mechanical work about once a week on something or other. But is better than nothing. The last 1st world car I had was a 2012 Kia Soul. Loved that car.
