aya it a fad that will never catch on and fade away,
I agree, if we were to start buying EV's and owners don't charge them properly, we will see a lot of dead EV's on the roads.......
Not such a good idea in my opinion.
HAL don't want to move with the times just like their technology.
I see big business for tow truck business hauling those EV's to their storage lots
Much $$ made on getting your dead EV out of the storage lot
Then having it towed to a charging station.
Evidently, these tree hugging, want to save the world liberal nut cakes, don't understand what a battery is or how it is made, nor do they realize what materials are involved in making batteries.
And as the other post earlier, the power grid. There will be major loads on our existing power grids.
Just go out to the shipping and receiving and take a look at a charger for just one forklift!!
Who the f--- cares
How the hell do they think they are going to recharge the batteries?
It will cost more $$ to retrofit stations
It will cost more $$ to retrofit electrical grids to accommodate the additional load
It will cost more $$ to retrofit our homes, businesses and facilities to accomidate the additional charging stations
It will cost more for batteries
It will generate more need for oil products for electrical power grid power stations, charging stations and batteries.
This is counter productive than what we currently have.
If we were to proceed, we will need almost double oil than we are currently producing, WTF!!!!
Toyota recently announced plans to design and build EVs with Mazda in the US, but it has big plans elsewhere, too. The automaker will produce electric cars in both China and India starting in 2020, it said in a pair of press releases. Up until now, Toyota has focused on hydrogen and hybrid vehicles as green options, but its recent political and environmental developments have forced its hand. China, for one, aims to have two million EVs and hybrids on the road by 2019, and India plans to ban gas-powered vehicle sales completely by 2030.
or maybe acquire a new downhole tool company, mix n match, pick what you want then sell the rest.
If at first you don't succeed... Oh, and where would the cash come from to make that purchase?
Reactivate the merger group! With some astute negotiation, Jeff should be able to get by with a $5 BILLION fee up front, in case this attempt doesn't work out.
This is a great plan. We should go for it. It cannot fail...!! I would even bet $3.5bn that we would succeed.
