What moron would want an electric car in winter?

Guess that's why most electric vehicle sales are to Commifornia morons.

"A few days ago, Virginia – home to this writer – was hammered by a sudden-onslaught blizzard that dumped almost a foot of snow along the I-95 corridor, the name we Virginians use to reference the stretch of Interstate 95 that runs from Richmond up to Northern Va, near DC – before it threads up the east coast to New York and beyond.

The snow was so fierce and heavy it paralyzed traffic on I-95, which became a kind of extended parking lot for much of the distance between Richmond and Northern Virginia, which is more than 100 miles.

Thousands of drivers were stuck inside their cars, for as long as 27 hours – which is more than one full day, if you’re counting. This is extremely inconvenient – as well as uncomfortable, assuming your car isn’t an RV with beds in the back and cable TV.

It could be something else – if your car happens to be electric.

EVs don’t like sudden, unplanned things – because they’re more likely to be not ready for them – since it takes them hours to charge, if not plugged in to a “fast” charger – and none of these are at home. You have to drive to where they are.

This is hard to do if you can’t drive to where they are."

    I believe EVs are awesome.
    However one must be aware of the limitations.

      For example, be sure you have a vehicle with IC engine if you live anywhere other than the Commifornia coast or want to drive somewhere with cold winter or hot summer. And shell out $25,000 for a new battery when the first one craters after 7 years. And shell out a few more thousand for an independent charging station at least 100 feet from your home so when the batteries catch fire your house isn't burned down while you are sleeping inside.
      Like the vaccines (and all the so-called solutions being pushed on us by our masters in DC and NY,) the tech is not practical and not ready for use except by the priests of that religion.

    Year and be sure to stand back when you light the Kerosene. When the car goes up you don't wanna be hurt. I think electric cars are someone's bad dream!
