Not even if I spent the extra 5 grand for the extended life battery.
-40 is not kind to anything, let alone electric vehicles.
I’m not even talking about the life,  I’m talking about the miles per charge.  I have a great hybrid that I drive and get 55 MPG in the spring, summer and early fall.   BUT, I drive 70 miles a day on flat roads and mostly interstate.  In the winter p, which aren’t anywhere neat yours, I drop to 49 to 50.  When I drive they the mountains in Va/WV that drops to 43 in the winter.  

Driving a straight EV with what is available today, in those conditions, you would have to stop every 100 miles to charge up.

It's great if you live in a bog city with a lot of charging stations.
In my town there in 1 charging station (I have never seen anyone at it).
I think there are 1 or 2 in a town about 25 miles west. Other than that, the closest is in Duluth at 65 miles away.
They are not practical for rural America.
Also, what about the military?
Are the tanks going to be electric?
Commercial Airplanes?
I don't think so.

I "resto-modded"  a 78 280Z with a 415 HP FORD 347.
415 HP at 2700 pounds all up weight... :twisted:  
After re-engineering the entire car I only had enough room left  for a 10 gallon gas tank..so it's cruisin' range is about the same as the straight EV..... :twisted:

If an EV Battery contains An EV battery weighs 1,000 pounds, contains 25 pounds of lithium, 60 pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds of cobalt, 200 pounds of copper and 400 pounds of aluminum there will be no problem recycling them, In fact a Dead Ev Battery looks like it worth about $2,000 just for the Material in it, maybe even more.

EV's are fantastic while whizzing along in between charging stations.
"On Thursday the Supreme Court handed down a ruling that will significantly curtail the power of executive agencies to control entire sectors of the economy through promulgating rules.While some commentators view this decision narrowly as a determination of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ability to promulgate regulations to address climate change, in practice, it sets a precedent that will limit the ability of all executive agencies to make regulations that shift entire industries without specific congressional authority to do so.According to legal expert Jonathan Turley, “it will be much more difficult for President Biden to order sweeping environmental changes without congressional approval” in the wake of this decision."

NYT staff seem to not understand the the Supreme Court should have no agenda.
It's bad that the court doesn't legislate from the bench... :\

The EPA's wish list needs to be stopped. Funny how the left cries when the SC *******-slaps them.  The left has been using the SC to promote their agenda for years.

To me, it seems amazing that **** go their entire careers as a NON-impartial judge and still manage to get placed in the position of Supreme Court Justice.

I'd rather have a room full of non-feeling ******* that see only the constitution and current law as the barometer for decision making.
Of course, that'll never happen. Humans are flawed and fallible. But to at least lean that way would be nice.

Sure, some stuff won't go "my way".
But, gee, ain't that how "fair" is supposed to work?

Next, I suggest the EV crowd drive thru West Va on 64 with their EVs.  With Temps in the 30s.  The hills and the temp will GREATLY reduce your range.
Fly over WV sometime and you can easily see where the tops have been slashed off of mountains, and the runoff has resulted in polluted streams bordered by miserable little towns of shacks, ruined trailers and hovels.

Batteries will improve and more and more electricity will come from renewable sources. If your occupation involves driving through WV, then perhaps an EV is not a good choice. But most people do NOT have such occupations.

You liberal imbeciles don't even want to admit the largest potential problem as more and more people buy EVs, thinking they'll save on the high price of gas.
Care to guess what will happen when the inevitable blackouts and brownouts occur in many states this summer?
What do you think will be the first order from politicians when California declares an emergency power shortage during the next heat wave or when a wildfire breaks out?
California Warns of Possible Summer Blackouts as Power Runs Low 
Bloomberg By Mark Chediak May 6, 2022
  • State says energy supplies could be short through 2025
  • California has struggled to keep lights on past two summers
California has struggled to keep the lights on the past two summers, with grid operators imposing brief rotating blackouts in 2020 during a extreme regional heat wave that overwhelmed the grid. Officials warned of potential shortages last summer, although the state avoided having to impose blackouts after Newsom declared a grid emergency, which helped free up additional power resources.

The biggest challenge for the power system is during hot evenings in late summer and early fall, when solar production falls after sunset while demand for air-conditioning remains high, said Mark Rothleder, chief operating officer of the California Independent System Operator, which oversees the main state grid.
 
Expect More Blackouts This Summer
  • May 9, 2022  San Diego News Desk
High temperatures lead to rolling blackouts, scheduled blackouts that are intended to save the state’s energy supply. But California has been experiencing a lack of energy as prices go up. Governor Newsom sent a letter to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo about the delay in imported solar cells and modules to California. Due to this, California could be short of energy equivalent to what it takes to power 1.3 million homes. That number could go as high as 3.75 million if high temperatures and fires threaten power grids.
 
Map: Summer Blackouts Coming to Huge Swaths of US, Experts Say - If You Live in These States, Prepare Now 
The Western Journal By Warner Todd Huston  May 24, 2022 

Experts warn that Americans should start preparing for huge swaths of the nation to succumb to power outages this summer as the left works to end coal plants and force us into “green” energies that are woefully inadequate to fuel our economy.“At least a dozen US states from California to the Great Lakes are at risk of electricity outages this summer,” Bloomberg reported Sunday.The report cited a recent assessment from the North American Electric Reliability Corp. that much of the U.S. population is likely to suffer brownouts, blackouts and other disruptions in power during the hottest days of the year this summer.

The "End of Life" with an EV is dubious at best.
Worst part is that half-ton poison box...

The entire life cycle of a steel car the burned fossils vs that wonderful green car driven by smug *******...
This has always been a terrible comparison so it gets pushed back. Nobody should see it.

But, an industry has popped up.
Factories, peoples' jobs, legislation, reputations, etc. have become support structures to this sham.
Of course, the libs and  media were already sucking green tit... The parade of ******* just got bigger.

Many people, repeat, MANY people inside the sham know it for what it is. Can't easily stop the train.

They don't use EVs to drive to the strip-mining wind turbines to change the oil supraClueless.  What do they do with the used oil?

Most engine oil is recycled. If you change your own oil, you can dispose of it free at many car parts stores, like O'Reillys, Advance Auto, and Auto Zone. It can be refined into fuel and lubricants.

I didn't see that you had already posted the video on the old Veteran in Florida before I posted it.  Sorry about that.
