No I would not buy a electric car.. or make my mopar run with no sounds..
I might get a hybrid electric vehicle.
I had a picture of someone that did a Henry j back in the 80 or 90 all electric. I just can not find it..
If you find the story post it.. It was neat to read..
FYI - we lost power 6 times in the last 5 years at our new house.. Not fun.
You had to run the very loud generator at 2am and plug in the phones and fridge. Until you got power back..
Here is another big no - Higher Insurance Rates.???
Diminished Hybrid Fuel Efficiency In Cold Weather.
or the facts:
Two immediate problems with hybrids are their lack of pick-up and their battery life. First, acceleration in hybrids is generally very poor, even if they are capable of a reasonable top speed. Second, the batteries degenerate faster than one is accustomed to with a standard car battery, and need to be replaced every 80,000 miles or less. These batteries cost several thousand dollars each. The most serious problem with hybrid designs are the manufacturing inputs for their high performance batteries and electric motors. They are very intensive in rare elements, which goes a long way to explaining their expense. Most of these elements currently come from China, and the supply as it exists today is not expected to last more than several years under even the most generous estimates. Efforts are underway to open new sources of these rare elements, but it is probable that they will not be producing in quantity before the existing supplies begin to dwindle and cause a shortage. or $$$$$
