FYI….something to chew on!!!
LABOUR IS GUILTY OF TREASON THEY ARE GOING TO BANKRUPT AUS
Tesla Model 3 Battery Pack $21,000:
That’s The “Cheap” Tesla Model!
NOW READ THE NEXT SENTENCE SLOWLY AND MORE THAN ONCE,
SO IT SINKS IN, WELL AND TRULY!
In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million, plus a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid.
That is enough to power 20,000 homes!
No one likely thinks about the fact that it can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping up.
What are you and (or) your passengers doing during that time??? Particularly if it’s snowing, or hotter than hell….
ICSC-Canada board member, New Zealand-based consulting engineer Bryan Leyland describes why installing electric car charging stations in a city is impractical:
· “If you’ve got cars coming into a petrol station, they would stay for an average of five minutes.
If you’ve got cars coming into an electric charging station, they would be at a minimum 30 minutes, possibly an hour, but let’s say it’s just 30 minutes.
· So that’s six times the surface area to park the cars while they’re being charged. · So, multiply every petrol station in a city by six.
· Where are you going to find the place to put them?”
Used Car Market The average used EV will need a new battery before an owner can sell it, pricing them well above used internal combustion cars.
The average age of an American car on the road is 12 years. Most dealers are refusing to trade used Tesla’s.
A 12-year-old EV will be on its third battery.
A Tesla battery typically costs $10,000US so there will not be many 12-year-old EVs on the road. Oh, and don’t forget the additional US $2,500 labour cost to remove old battery and re-fit the new one!
Good luck trying to sell your used ‘green fairy tale’ electric car!
Also Bear In Mind Running Costs:
Thinking of recharging at home? Add another $13,000 – $16,000 plus cost of Solar Panels, and a big storage battery!!
Ah! Recharge Along The Way, Eh? Add another $34-35 every time (currently).Then you can’t guarantee immediate connection on arrival, assuming you make it in time.
