Are electric cars being suppressed?

People decided that it would be nice to be able to make a return journey on the same day instead of waiting hours for the batteries to recharge

Yes, exactly. But batteries are improved these days, and continue to be improved. I'm curious about how hydrogen (fuell cell electric vehicles) will compare to traditional electric vehicles in the long run. I've got stocks in a company producting hydrogen, though I'd probably rather buy an elecric car, I guess (or a hybrid, both hydrogen and plugin). But ... "fast charging" an electric car takes about 30m, many hours if you use your ordinary plugin at home. Both are problematic for longer travels.

Without subsides your stocks are worthless, batteries have a limit on energy density, and of course are expensive to recycle.

All correct. But cars based on fossil fuels will be outdated in not so long, and subsidising electric vehicles (with or withouth hydrogen) will not be necessary in the long run. (In my country, electrical cars such as Tesla are heavily subsidised.)

The question is not whether fossil fuel will be outdated. The question is which type of cars will take over. I guess both.

Based on libtard cuckoo science. Sorry to disappoint you but real science will prevail. Btw Tesla cars are overwhelming owned by multiple car owners, they are reliant on fossel fuel and the Tesla are just toys for immature boys, they can't even corner properly because of the weight of those batteries.

I give up. You obviously don't know what you are talking about.

Good luck.

Of course I don't, cos you know everything, and are never wrong. And even if I quoted the manufacturers figures for the lightest kerb weight of a Tesla (1961 kg ) which is over twice the weight of the heaviest Elise (931 kg), I would be wrong too, because batteries weigh bugger all, and even if they do, the extra weight actually aids the Tesla in cornering, because they have special tyres not available to other cars........And so on and so on

Libtards sure are dumb,but some go out of the way to stamp retard into their forehead.

Sorry.

I always hope to find a rational core behind irrational aggression. I guess I was disappointed. I won't make another attempt.
