    This gent had some resistance in his prediction in 2007 of a million EV by 2020

    I canít believe itís been 13 years since I ****ed off a bunch of oil investors at a ďfuture of energyĒ investment conference in 2007.Those were some good times. I told them that the internal combustion engine was an outdated technology and by 2020 there would be 1 million electric cars on the roads.The oil investors were not pleased and spent most of the Q&A mocking me, telling me I was too young to fully understand why I was wrong and, of course, why such a claim would only be supported by pesky environmentalists.One guy in particular actually got in my face and yelled at me, saying I was being irresponsible by suggesting such a thing.How dare I question the future viability of a 148-year-old technology.In all fairness, though, I was wrong.In 2020, there are NOT 1 million electric cars on the road.There are about 6 million, and that number is expected to grow rapidly over the next 20 years. In fact, according to Bloomberg, by 2040, electric vehicles will make up about 60% of global passenger car sales and 81% of municipal bus sales.Folks, this ainít rocket science."

    Hummer Hummer


    A supercar-rivalling 0-60mph (97km/h) time of just 3.0 seconds is claimed, and the Hummer EV will reportedly have a driving range of more than 560km from its 200kWh battery.
    When it comes to recharging, GM says its 350kW high-speed system will deliver a driving range of 160km in just 10 minutes.
    The previously reported 'crab mode' Ė which allows the Hummer to drive diagonally Ė has been confirmed as part of a standard four-wheel steering system.

    But like all EVís, horrendously expensive compared to the ICE version. Early adopters tax isnít something I would (or could) pay or afford.

    And very very heavy that huge battery would make mud and slippery hills hell I assume Not for me either. Add Luxury car double taxation here and that's a ouch plus for pockets much deeper than mine
