quote: I disagree that range is the issue. Even something like the Nissan Leaf has enough range for *most* daily use around town.
quote: Most people aren't interested in a car that suits their needs 90% of the time.
quote: I still find it weird that folks seem to forget that the Volt is essentially an EV at heart in that it does about 40 miles on battery alone when fully charged and then switches over to gas when it runs out for as far as you want to go. It's also comparable in price to a fully loaded Prius in many places and is a pure EV if you manage to keep your daily trips below 40 miles. It's a no-compromise vehicle at least in ability here.
quote: It was to counter the false statement that it takes several hours to charge a Model S.
quote: Try driving that distance with kids. You'll be stopping 3 or 4 times anyway.
quote: You people act as if single guys living in apartment building or dorm rooms are the only car buyers.
quote: Would you buy a washing machine that could only wash most of your cloths? Or a Freezer that would only keep most of your food cold? How about a phone that would let you answer most of your calls?
quote: I know you will never use an EV, no matter what, we get that.
quote: Everything else will be regulated off the marketplace.
quote: “People don’t want to look eccentric. They want to have pride in their car’s looks.

quote: You know I generally dislike when CEO's and other employees make underhanded attacks and snide remarks regarding their competition.
quote: WTF are you even on about??
quote: The Nissan Leaf absolutely is "cheap", for an electric vehicle.
quote: It just has always bothered me when people in executive positions behave like Internet trolls.

quote: Your period key clearly works!
quote: You realize that hydrogen atoms are so small that actually storing and "shipping" it is a really big problem right? This is by far the biggest challenge we have with hydrogen now as a form of fuel. Things have gotten better with materials and manufacturing over the years but this problem will persist.
quote: Oh yeah, Hydrogen is flammable too. To keep it in liquid form enormous pressure is required. Did you ever see the space shuttle Challenger explosion?

quote: Oh come on Reclaimer, even you have to admit the Leaf is ugly by even cheap competitor's standpoint.
quote: I agree with you here...I mean, only 'classy' looking cars are worth putting your pride in?
quote: I can't tell if these statements are from Porritt, or Tim Cook they're so elitist. And that's just bad, you don't want to be in that league.
quote: I was just trying to think of a CEO that routinely says narcissistic douchebag BS, and he popped into my mind first.
