    A two year old 130k Tesla S will have an asking price of around 80- 90k and most of these are lease turn ins.

    This is all true. Here in Cali. where most EV cars are registered and where most charging stations are located it`s a pain using an EV for long distance travel even when you have everything planned, i have lost hours and days waiting for and getting a charge, it really is an undue stress.

    No way would I want a pure EV Gladiator here in Utah. There are no power stations, let alone fuel stations in the remote west deserts of Utah and Nevada. Additionally, I'd not want to haul a generator plus the necessary fuel for said generator around with me. Until they figure that out, EV trucks/Jeeps are just for mall-crawling and not for actual overlanding.

    Hours and days? How does that happen. I do not live in a populated area and you can't swing a cat without running into a charging station.

    I'm sure you're running ac on full blast there, too. My experience is with a Volt which is a plugin, if you don't run the a/c or heat it doesn't really lose range in stop and go. Not fun on hot or cold days, but in the context of a jeep I don't often use climate control off road as I don't have a top on it. In the volt an easy way to extend the range in cold is to run the seat heaters instead of the climate control as they use a lot less power. In summer, well open the windows but yeah, if it's 100 degrees out you lose range from the a/c.

    I don't want my train powered by diesel. It can spill, you can't carry it with your hands, someone might drink it, you can't just dig it out of the ground, you need a pump to move it, you have to put in in a sealed container, diesel motors are more complicated, they cost more....

    Coal and steam is all we need.

    And before that all we needed was the horse.

    Silly that we still burn shit for energy.

    Because of battery technology, there are some people that believe that battery cars are only a partial answer.... There is a group that believes that Hydrogen might be part of the end solution.

    Easy, stations are full then add the charging time. Tesla is promising more but they have been saying that for years.

    Yes the Tesla does lose range.

    I`m just pointing out what some might not take into account. There are many Tesla owners in my area and over half have told me this is their last. Not because of the car per say but because of the added planning most people just want to gas and go.

    Not at all interested in an electric vehicle due to environmental impact of manufacturing and disposing of the batteries. I certainly wouldn't want to be 8 hrs out on a trail and need a charge. Many runs here are 12hr days.

    . My model 3 performance charges at level three. 10% to 90% in about 40 minutes BUT it’s gotta full tank charged off my roof every day so I save a ton of time overall

    it will also break your neck clean off with a good blip of the throttle from zero or at 75mph.

    I am order number 29000 for the Cybertruck but I’m still getting a diesel gladiator in a addition
