Electric cars emit 50% less greenhouse gas than diesel, study finds

Seems interesting how well his use of language aligns with his views, using gay as a derogatory terms immediately marks him as a bit backward, angry, and somewhat uneducated. Reading the article certainly doesn't change that view of him based on his EV views! Not that the EV bloke sounds like much of a winner either...

Thought the article was a bit off myself. 

Brave enough to say that after somebody else. :unsure:

But it's not funny. Guy just sounds like a dick.

I'm not at all offended by it.

This is where I think New Zealand will struggle, with the low population density in 95% of the geography, how feasible is it to have two alternative fuel supply networks? I think you will stuggle to fast chargers into some parts of NZ, as there will never be the population demand to justify the cost of putting in the charger and the supply gubbins.

some parts of NZ still can't get cell phone coverage AND there's more than one supplier.

Its years away and a better alterative will come up.

And taking the piss out of electric cars without any puns, that's just shockingly bad form!

RegularCars guy does it better imo https://youtu.be/m-gDhq8VKsQ

fusion energy is where its at.

cars will be powered for life and you will pay only for your kms.

no petrol stations you either prepay like road users or your car will be tracked by GPS and sent a bill for your kms.

maybe 50 years away but that's where it heading

I occasionally browse this thread for a chuckle fix :D.

Sooo not sure this is on topic but I think its kinda related to the humorous nature of the thread... http://www.nzlii.org/nz/cases/NZMVDT/2017/209.html

What I find most amusing about this decision is... why on earth would you negotiate the addition of a tow bar to a Leaf???? ;)

So, I see requests for towbars onto Leafs all the time on the Leaf Facebook group. I think it's weird, and silly, but... I have seen towbars on Audi RS7s here in New Zealand, and to me that's just as weird...

And towbars on M3's... owners manual explicitly states "DO NOT TOW WITH THIS VEHICLE"... :-/

towbars on an Audi RS and M car make more sense than one on a Leaf. Or any other electric car for that matter :D. Maybe its to tow their electric trailer or electric caravan or electric boat or electric... ;).

I wonder how long it took to recharge in Whakatane after running out in Matata to allow the owner to return back to homebase? In fact how many charges were required for the round trip? Which makes me wonder - how many charges are required to say go on a 3000km summer road trip? In fact, how many weeks more than the few days it takes in a combustion engine type vehicle will it take to travel that distance? Does the charge frequency increase and range decrease when towing the electric trailer? At least you'll be emitting 50% less of whatever the name of this thread is B)

And please don't take this post too seriously folks ;)

Maybe the towbar is for towing the generator you need to go further than 130Km, that makes it a hybrid! ;)

Yes, you can, it is called a "range extender" and this still counts as a fully electric vehicle as the ICE is not directly connected to the drive train as it is a generator. Something the NZTA still can't get it's head around.

Note that my answer is a mechanical one related to the Leaf. It will not charge while turned on.

Have done over 7000 Km in the leaf now, with that and the price of fuel the way it is, it has made a good start on paying for itself!!  I see EVs becoming a lot more popular in Auckland in the near future too....

Of course.

Its just surprising that the current government has broken more election promises in the first six months than the last one did in nine years.
