I like electric vehicles as a whole... but...
I like how powerful they can be. They don't have to, still they do.
I like the fact they don't pollute the air, usually.
I like how my country has over 90% of electrical power coming from hydroelectric dams, and could own one right now and feel real cozy about doing my part to the environment. Really egotistic, but oh that would feel GOOD.
I like when people convert old cars (Beetles!) into electric, and they become more powerful, and more reliable than their gas counterparts ever were.
I like how simple they are. One motor, one inverter, a kill switch, lots of batteries... and a potentiometer on the go pedal telling the inverter how much juice it must push into the motor.
I hate how costly they are.
I hate how people only note the subject when they can go 0-60 in stupid seconds. If they perform just as much as their gas brethren, so be it.
I hate how people forget that most of the time, they won't cover more than 150 miles in a day and autonomy becomes irrelevant. If you go farther than that, go gas, please! It makes sense to use gas for travelling, but not for boring daily drive commute!
I hate how apartment buildings don't have high-power lines anywhere near the parking lots. (This should be included in the building code). Once you have them, it is easy to enable power sockets compatible to any type of electric car, SAE J1772 being the foremost example. Enabling a power meter for FAIR BILLING on these guys would be equally trivial, if they were included in the building code.
I hate how people feel ENTITLED to TAX REBATES because they are using electrical energy. NOBODY should have them, or EVERYBODY should have them. Likewise, no subsidy, or EVERYBODY gets subsidy.
On a side lane:
Elon Musk built an electric car for all the WRONG reasons, and people loved him for it!
You don't need 500HP, but, there you go!
You don't need 260 mile range, but there you go!
You don't need the car to look good like a gas car, but there you go!
If people paid attention to the subject of electric car for THE RIGHT REASONS, we'd be all driving them right now. The Tesla S just spat that in everybody's faces, and lots of people didn't even notice. He built the car just to prove a POINT. GM built the EVO-1 for THE RIGHT REASONS, and nobody gave a flying F...
Now Arnold is pulling that stunt on BRICK made by Mercedes, and it is, like Elon Musk and its Tesla S, making a STATEMENT, proving a POINT, that you can own BRICK of a car, a SUV, and still you can avoid burning gas, and not losing much on the upgrade. Again, he is doing it for the WRONG reasons, just to try to dissuade the gas-guzzlers from using gas, and instead using electric, and still have the same attributes they all love in their vehicles.
