Dropping Teslas on dense civilian populations in Russia is not considered a war crime, since Russia is not a war with anyone.  It is more of a gift.

Tesla's suck. As more competition emerges I predict Tesla will eventually die
 
2022-06-28 5:43:29 PM  
We've taken the Tesla, sir.  There's no one here.  Just the computer talking.

What's it saying?

10, 9, 8, 7,..

GET OUT OF THERE!

There were, based on yearly averages, over 320 gasoline car fires and 11 gas station fires yesterday. I wonder why it's always big news when an EV catches fire 🧐

How many of those car fires and gas station fires reignited themselves weeks later?  How many took digging a hole, pushing the car into it, then flooding it with 4500 gallons of water?

Because this isn't your usual car fire.  I've seen car fires.  They didn't require digging a hole and thousands of gallons of water to put out.  Second, this is our future.  Those 320 daily gasoline car fires could end up being 320 daily electric car fires requiring holes and 4500 gallons of water to put out.

So... the fires are potentially worse, but 10x to 20x less frequent. 1 EV fire uses about as much water as any single gas car uses in its lifetime just from burning gas.

I'll take that trade.

And where will we be in 10 years?  20 years?  California is banning the sale of new ICE cars in 2035, just 13 years from now.  Without some game changing new tech between now and then every new car will be carrying batteries that can recombust days or weeks later.   Are we going to dig holes and waste thousands of gallons of water every time an electric vehicle is in a wreck?  This should be a lesson to us, not "oh well, I've got gas"  when you won't have a gas powered vehicle a decade or so from now.

Fearmongering. EVs are in crashes every day and this happens on rare occasions.

And as for your "oh no! Gas bans" FUD, they're banning the sale of *new* ICE vehicles. Used and refurbished vehicles will be available for years and years. Toyota is already spinning off their Kinto brand as a refurbished car dealer to get around bans.

I guess you are incapable of reading as I did state the sale of NEW ICE vehicles.  Look up.  And I said can, not will.

You also said "you won't have gas powered vehicles 10 years from now"

So either you're incoherent or dishonest. Which is it.

Show me where I said "you won't have gas powered vehicles 10 years from now".  I never said that.  Search the page.  Nope.  If anyone is being dishonest it's you. What I said was "And where will we be in 10 years?  20 years?  California is banning the sale of new ICE cars in 2035, just 13 years from now."   That's an actual direct quote, not something you made up.  There will be more and more electric vehicles on the road over the next few years, which means more and more accidents, which means more and more unextinguishable car battery fires.

/I guess you don't know the difference between NEW cars and CURRENTLY ON THE ROAD cars.

It does not mean "more and more unextinguishable fires" because most EVs will be outfitted with less volatile chemistries. You notice how the fires are always high capacity lithium ternary batteries? The vast majority of new EVs sold even now are iron-based and do not catch fire. Some of them don't even get hot if the cell is punctured with metal.

But it doesn't matter. You're pretending to be concerned about battery fires when gas powered vehicles cause far more headaches and environmental issues.
