Re: [EVDL] US News & World Reports Attacks EV's.

Some of you have pointed out the truth, high mileage has never sold a poorly
built vehicle, (IE the Vega 30 years ago.) Actually most purchasers want a
vehicle that makes them feel Superior whether it is an SUV, or Corvette, or
(Omigosh) a Hummer. Why do some of us like driving an 18 wheel 500 hp Semi?
for 104 hours a week? cause you are KING of the ROAD, I know I was one. I
was also a New Car Salesman for a while and we didn't sell the cars for high
mileage, we sold them for LOVE and EGO boost.
But enough on selling ICE Junk. Comparing an EV to an Ice needs to include
something other than the price of Gasoline versus Electricity. You have to
consider "SAVING THE WORLD" And the reduced pollution from an EV cannot be
beat, Look at pictures of L.A. in the 70's even, "SMOG" did not come from
the Electric Cars! And it still does not. and that "SMOG" made people sick!
Now if smoking one's Cigarettes near a baby may contribute to that child or
you someday having Emphysema or another respiratory condition. Remember the
"Marlboro Man" (er actor) actually did die of Emphysema. Now the hard
Question, how much does your health benefit by your burning 20 gallons of
Gasoline or low sulfur Diesel and dumping the exhaust into the atmosphere we
all breathe ? And don't try that burning fuel in the power plant argument,
because we all know that a huge stationary plant can do a much better job of
scrubbing it's exhaust than we get from a 12 year old SUV. And how are you
going to compare oil based fuel to Hydro and Wind, and Solar or other
alternative energy sources that can power my EV ? So as Daddy used to say
stick that in your pipe and smoke it!
