Excuses that I get daily as to why an electric car could never suit peoples life style.

Some of the excuses that I get daily as to why an electric car could never suit peoples life style.

1. "I need a car that could go 300km at a time."

* Average daily round trip is less than 64.37 km (40 miles)
* Most electric cars can handle a 100km trip on a single charge.

2. "Electric cars cost to much to convert a car to electric"

* You can convert a car with off the shelf parts from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00
* Convert your next car to electric instead of buying another "Dino Drinker".

3. "My hydro bill will go through the roof charging a electric car"

* Charging a electric car costs $0.026 per km (0.016 miles)
* Oven 58 kilowatts per hour $0.638 per hour


I have a commute of 133 km (82.64 miles) x $.026 per km is will cost us $3.46 per day, 4 days per week $13.84 per week, 4 weeks per month $55.36, full year $664.32

Presently I spend $60 per week on "Dino Juice" x 52 weeks = $3120.00 - $664.32 = $2464.88 saved each year.

So if a car cost $10,000.00 to convert will have a payback date in just over 4 years but your normal "Dino Drinker" would have no payback time. Our car will cost just over $2000.00 to convert having a targeted payback of just under a year.

4. "Electric cars are to slow"

5. "I don't know how to fix a electric car, what if it breaks down? it sounds scary"

* You probably don't know how to fix a normal gas car either.
* Instead you just call a electrician or replace a fuse.

6. "What if I need to go on a longer trip"

* With all that money you saved that you were going to spend anyway, rent a nice car, swap with a "good" friend or family member, I don't think that they will mind saving money and looking cool.

Batteries, batteries, and more batteries.

In the beginning, there were a few battery manufacturers that you could go to for electric car applications.
That was a bad thing.
There was practically no competition, and the few manufacturers knew this, and so would set extremely restrictive conditions for purchasing their batteries.
Among them were,
1. We're going to take a long time. Don't hold your breath.
2. We'll need an unbreakable commitment for a large quantity ahead of time, whether you're going to need all of them or not.
3. Large minimum purchase quantities/cost.
