Heard from a trade school ASE professor that his school bought 1 tesla, a Nissan leaf, and some all electric Toyota thing so that they can start teaching electric mechanics to their students. He said the tesla was the simple-est of the 3.Much like tuner cars . If its what you do then go for it .
Ijust recently got a hybrid . Its definitely different . I looked under the hood and. Nope im not fixing it .
Personally, cost of electric isn't a concern at this point, and neither is the grid at the moment. I am designing my own solar system that will power everything I need, and I believe that it can work. Trailers with additional batteries and solar for long trips or OTR trucking.You'd better have a look at what's going on in Europe to understand all this electrical mess is not the solution. They are paying much more for power, and on peak hours (the ones most of us use for common tasks) the price is extremely high. If everyone would decide to store energy or charge during the cheaper night hours then the price would be more expensive during those hours too, so it is a no win situation. Add the price of those cars. Do you really think everyone can afford a Tesla? Only those who can are really throwing the speech of being green and blah, blah, blah. They are also restricting completely the traffic to most vehicles in big cities overseas, but do you really think a worker can carry all his tools and stuff using public transportation? It is just a big rip off to change the power from some companies to new ones and pay more for it. Just be careful what you ask for because then there won't be any way back.
I've been a project manager for about 8 years, I still work daily with my hands, I've been a Commercial mason for 37 years, no way am I packing my tools that far, and thank God I don't live in the cityPersonally, cost of electric isn't a concern at this point, and neither is the grid at the moment.

I believe the price of the cars will come down as electric becomes more common. Think about it, you can buy a Mercedes or a Focus, both do the same job.
Move out of the city, traffic solved.
Having worked construction in cities like New York, D.C., Baltimore, etc. I can tell you that it sucks, but I have carried all sorts of odd ball tools to and from job sites. Miter Saws, Tool boxes, saws, air compressors, entire windows, etc. Carrying a 200lb window 25 blocks in lower Manhattan sucks, but it happens all of the time.
No. I honestly DESPISE electric vehicles!https://dragillustrated.com/nhra-an...c-vehicle-class-to-summit-et-series-for-2022/
There is going to be an electric class in the NHRA Summit Series. What are your guys thoughts on this?
