  1. Hydrogen is the future, not EV. 60,000 plus on an EV or23,000 for a regular van that I can fill up in 5 minutes and do another 500 miles per tank.
    See what actual range you get in the real world, then see what you get after 2/3 years.
    I will guess 70 percent. Thats 60 miles less on a 200 mile range from new van.

  2. To increase available mileage between battery charging would it be possible to just exchange the spent battery for a fully charged one quickly and easily at a ‘refuelling station’? A bit like filling the tank at a gas station, just unplug and wheel out the ‘empty’ battery, wheel in and plug in a ‘full’ one. Cost would include the expected lifespan/replacement of the battery with the price of recharging. Result = no distance limitations!

  3. All the retards in my neighbourhood are now being driven around in an electric short bus. The future is going to be amazing!

  4. The brainwashing is working, it seems most people are calling electric vehicles 'zero emissions' which by any stretch of the imagination they are not. In the U.K. they are fed with gas generated electricity. They are not even low emissions.
    The crux of this is that they add demand to the grid and all extra demand is met by gas and coal generation, but predominately gas. The government is mistakenly using a figure of about 70Kg CO2 per Megawatt hour as a grid average but this is wrong and does not take into account the way the grid actually works. all extra demand is met by fossil fuelled power.
