Problem is a gas Toyota Corolla is a better built car than a small tesla and the tesla will cost $5000 or more. You know how far a Corolla will go on $5000 of gas? It would circle the planet 3 times before the Tesla start making your $5000 extra back.

In the 19th century NYC had a taxi company that used exclusively electric cars. They didn't worry about charge time at all, they just had a huge stockpile of charged batteries and switched them out as needed. That could still work today, but as the batteries are the expensive parts there would have to be complex leasing agreements of some kind. I don't see why you couldn't design smaller batteries that were lighter and more efficient for commuters who only go 20k a day. Of course there are other problems, but if we could do it over 100 years ago I'm sure we could do it today.

when he started talking about chargers i thought he was leading on the effects of harmonic distortion! harmonics will be the next major hurdle for EV's, one that car & motor design and wide spread adoption can't overcome. the consequences of not sorting that problem before wide spread adoption will have great effects on national grids, never mind capacity and power station output at peak charging times, even 7kw chargers will cause big problems if even a quarter of households start charging overnight

If the refills would be as dense as a gas station and 10min I'd go for it. Otherwise it's just too much of a pain, to do stuff like go on vacation. I think a good intermediate solution could be to have an electric car that integrates a small icu power generator, maybe under the trunk, where you'd put the spare wheel, or maybe in the front. It would be able to generate electricity and allow you to recharge + power the electric while driving, if ever you're in an area without a charging station, or if you lack the time. It's also a lot simpler and less maintenance than having a full transmission, etc like in a regular hybrid, and since it's just running at constant RPM, it's a lot less wear and tear and more reliable than an ICE that would directly transmit force to the wheels. It would also be small and light, maybe 100lbs total? I can imagine doing 99% of the stuff on full EV, like errands commute etc, but if I go on vacation in an area that doesn't have a charger, or whatever else, I can temporarily use the gas. That way I'd use a couple dozen gallons a year maybe, rather than a few hundred like I do now. It seems like more of a compromise than a plug-in hybrid with a big battery set, but it's also simpler, lighter, lower maintenance? Maybe less efficient though, would need to figure out the efficiency of all this ...

Very good, thanks sir. Someone please fwd this to the US Gov’t. Also, can you make a video about fuel cell cars… could we re-use existing gas infrastructure (pipes and stations) and convert to hydrogen as an alternative option to battery electric vehicles?
Jan-Patrick Osterloh
Sorry to say this, but you're not getting the real problem. Fact is, that with my Model 3, I rarely use SuperChargers, since I don't do many long trips. I mostly drive within my city. In addition, Fast charging should NOT be your normal way of charging, since it harms the battery. The real problem is home charging! People who don't have a fixed parking place with charging on a daily basis, are required to use public charging, and this has to be convinient. We need laws that forces all houses to add slow charging stations for tentants, supermarkets and other public parking places must be equipped with charging stations, etc... Then people can buy and use EVs!

True. Not everyone live in a single dwelling home with a driveway. When you live in a 10 story apartment or condo and from the balcony you watch someone steal your expense extension cord from your parking lot space.
This EV push is part of a agenda all ready put into motion in corporation with Biden and the Democrats and of course the CCP..last I checked CCP produces 95% of batteries are manufactured there. So we say why would the US government push the car manufacturers to ramp up there EV production without charging infrastructure in place. I believe it part of a back door deal with CCP and other Dem cronies to melt the money down that they are giving to lobbyists companies to attempt to build the charging stations.in typical government fashion the money will be wasted on studies on top of studies and of course using the global warming farce why a shovel never got put in the ground. So I don’t believe it will happen anytime soon. End result more in debt and less freedom.. wake up people!

You ignore a key piece of the puzzle: the ratio of chargers per EV vehicle. If I have to wait in line for one hour to supercharge my car in 10 min, my "real" charging time is 70 minutes. That's a huge deal breaker.

If everyone on a road trip was driving an EV and needed to stop every 100 miles to charge how many charging stations would be required. I get annoyed by driving into a gas station and having to wait for a fuel pump to open up which usually only takes a few minutes. Can't imagine driving to a charging station and find it does not work or is not available and there is not another within driving range.

Ah! The big question. Government in the US is big on Infra-structure, so why not do something for charging of EVs. I have the answer. Immobilization! Everything the government is promoting is for the purpose of tethering us to our homes - if we will still own a home in the future. There are neither incentives nor plans to provide charging stations because the plan is not to let us cross the country like we do now. They will provide meager charging stations capable of getting us back home when we dare to venture too far and the time to charge to get back will be long enough to discourage us from using the car for more than picking up some milk and bread.

You consistently misunderstand and misstate what an 'inverter' is and how it's used. An inverter builds AC electricity from DC. To get DC from AC, all you need is a rectifier (diode) which is a very simple component and very cheap. AC from the grid can be obtained at many kilovolts on down as substations step it down with simple and cheap transformers. The $57,000 price tag for a simple transformer is ludicrous. Then you conflate the total watts needed to charge a battery to max charge, with the continuous wattage rating of a DC to AC inverter. Let's try 300 KW in 30 min or 10 KW per min maintained for 30 min. So you need a 10 KW step-down transformer and a a bridge rectifier (for efficiency). For a sanity check, you can create your own electricity with a 15 KW portable generator costing less than $1000. Don't you think the grid can do better than that? In reality, a step-down transformer with a rectifier can give you whatever voltage and current you want, for a few hundred dollars in single unit pricing. A typical charger installation would get you a parking lot full of stations off of a single transformer and rectifier costing $20,000 or less. The actual cost is trying to measure and bill each station separately to charge the people for the electricity. That is where the majority of cost would be in a charging station.

Long before we have enough charging stations to satisfy the 3.2 TRILLION driving miles/yr in the US, we'll run out of power. To satisfy everyone driving electric, we will need to open a Gigawatt power plant every 3 weeks between now and 2035, to meet a requirement to electrify all cars by 2035. And that assumes Zero economic growth between now and then also. We need safe nuclear power Now. Thorium is one option.

The Math at 9:51 is off. A very large portion of EV charging occurs at home. I charge my car at home every day. Unless making a trip, I don't need a supercharger. This is not the case with ICE cars, it is usually not possible to fill up gas at ones home. Therefore, the number of Superchargers required would be substantially less than the number of gas station.

Being that ev's use and average of .3 kwh/mile, and in the US 3.2 trillion miles are driven each year, in order to replace every fossil fuel vehicle in the US, we would need to build a 1gigawatt nuclear power plant every 3 weeks from now until 2035. That's the real problem. Without building those plants, there will not be enough electricity to power a complete turnover of technology in automotive industry.

I think the charging problem is somewhat overrated. It is unrealistic to think ab electric car will successfully compete with gas powered cars for long distance travel. However, most people do not typically travel long distances with their cars on the average. Overnight charging is ok for most usage. And many can afford a brand new $37K car will often have a second car, which could be a gas car for long distance travel. One problem overlooked with fast chargers is backlogs in people waiting to use them. Right now because there are so few electric cars on the road it is not a problem, but if electric cars become popular it will be an issue. With charging stations so expensive, they will never be as common as gas stations, and it will be an issue if a customer has to wait for addition 30 minutes for a charging station to open up in too of the 30 min. To charge the car.

291 miles per charge is nowhere near sufficient. Need a minimum of 450 miles per charge. This is relatively close to millage from a tank of gas on a gas only v6 or v8 vehicle. A hybrid camry can travel nearly 600 miles on a tank of gas.

Maybe the solution to charging would be to create universal-sized removable batteries that can be pulled out with the help of a machine (perhaps automated) and replaced with pre-charged units. Then rather than having to plug into a station, you could just swap out batteries in a few minutes and be on your way.

A few months ago, I posted here ::: Automated battery switching (swapping) is faster than gassing up (with gasoline). Instead of just choosing a single charging connector (CCS), there should be industry battery standards for sizes and connectivity. The swapped battery stockpile can slow charge in storage (even using local solar rather than electricity from the grid); the condition and range can be better monitored; removal from the transportation stockpile and recycling to less intensive uses (use as backup battery power for home generators, etc.) is automated; etc.. You can still charge w/o swapping, but for long distance driving, a 4-minute swap gets you back on the road quickly. No long waiting lines. Tesla beat down others promoting swapping and we're stuck with the charging station problem. ::: Battery swapping was used by Better Place (see Wikipedia) but they didn't have the clout of Tesla. I'm sure someone could even build an app (like Gas Buddy) to keep track of batteries and their charged up state at swap stations in each area.

While you might need to wait longer for charging on road trips (which is 1-2 times a year) and you can take a food break at a charging station. You can charge at home over night for 345 days of the year saving you time away from the pump. So if you have to fill up gas once a week, you save 1000 minutes a year not having to drive to a gas station (assuming 20 minutes on average to drive to the station/wait/pump).

Ok. You're not wrong. However, you kind of left out something critical: Commercial applications. Which is weird to say, since rail has been fully hybrid for a very long time now. On the road though, you need a charging network that will work for many different applications. That network just barely exists at all. What does exist, is probably in one small sliver in the US.

There is a simple solution to this problem. It´s called hydrogen. Germans created a way to store hydrogen in a pumpable inflammable gel. The gel can be stored in tanks just like gasoline, getting the hydrogen out of the gel is simple the hydrogen can then power a fuel cell, powering the car to speeds up to 100 mph, only if you go faster you need additional power from the small battery, while when you go slower the surplus of power the fuel cell is producing is loading the battery. The gel is even re-useable about 10.000 times. With minor adaptions existing infrastructure is useable, no overpriced power stations needed. The only problem this technology is facing is the commitments, financially and otherwise, the car industry already made towards electric vehicles. Nobody wants to hear that he can wave goodbye to billions of dollars already invested.

Let's start by saying that I'm not against electrical vehicles, but there are two problems with them that are not discussed in this video. First, most of the energy they use is still produced with fossil fuels, which has to be transported and converted, so it is less efficient than directly burning fossil fuels. The other point is that batteries start to degrade after a couple of years. This leads to 2 problems: the range decreases, so the battery has to be replaced after a certain time, and currently there is no good way to recycle those degraded batteries. One day we will probably have solutions to these problems, but for now, electrical vehicles are not the solution for our environmental problems.

Back in the 90s, when I was a kid, I remember having a "future tech" book that showed electric cars using battery-swapping stations, instead of charging directly. Drivers could just drop off the used battery in exchange for a fully charged one, leaving the used battery behind to charge for someone else. I wonder if this could be implemented in lieu of faster charging.
Jake 4 kun oldin
@Schnabel One solution to that is a subscription service for the option of battery swapping for people that didn't want to wait for charging, by spreading the cost of replacing that battery over say... 50 people participating in the service. (which wouldn't shorten the lifespan of the battery by that much compared to a single person using it.) They would only need to pay US$00.92 per month each to cover the cost of a brand new battery every 10 years. If you increased that subscription cost to US$9.20 per month, that would pay for a new battery every year.

This doesn't even address the biggest issue of all. If we want to get rid of gas cars any time soon and have all electric transportation future that runs on clean energy we will need to start building at least 1 nuclear power plant per month for a very long time because wind and solar will for obvious reasons not be able to provide the massive amounts of energy required. Yes I know many fear Nuclear Power but unless we suddenly discover the holy grail of cheap clean harmless energy production there isn't any other choice unless you want to burn the gas to create electricity.

Why all the rage around EV'S anyway? People say a big point for EV's is that that most travel is done within cities... SO WHY CARS? More subways, more bikes, electric assist bikes and velomobiles, which are all FAR more energy efficient and clean than EV's are the way to go, so push for those instead if you really care about the environment that much! And what i mean by pushing, is the fact that to get more subways, bikes, E bikes and velomobiles, you'd need infrastructure progress and reform, more separate lanes, and that's not happening with gov. monopoly on it.
NX3 5 kun oldin
@Lyonel K That's the thing, you CAN, even in cities (multi layer roads and bike roads). In suburbs, its simply a matter of expanding highways a bit which is usually easy to do (just build sideways a bit), and again, due to velomobiles being far more efficient and less energy consuming they can and ARE often made in a way they don't lose to a car in range, they also can easily be made to not lose in speed (currently plenty that go highway speeds at 70-120 kmph), and they can even be made for more than one person and with storage compartments.

@NX3 you cannot make more bike ways without cutting into car lanes. I agree fully but america is car centric thus its likely not going to happen unlike Europe we have just too many surburbs and rural area and not enough dense cities. For example if someone build a cities designed around public transport busses bike trains etc i think it would be far far more effective. But no one is going to do that when america culture is so focused on owning a car. In some regions you cannot live without one till that changes it will be the status quo

@Lyonel K Its not about making cars bad or restricting anything, its about makin OTHER OPTIONS GOOD. Again, if there where proper bike lanes in the US and the rest of the world, we could have switched like half the traffic to e bikes, velomobiles and electric assist/ fully electric velomobiles, they're far cheaper to manufacture, and are far more power efficient than EV's. Same goes for trains, making more subways in cities, and trains for suburbs. But government is always as inefficient as possible and stands in the way of all innovation and progress.

So state and local governments don't feel like improving things like public infrastructure. I'm certain some cities could get more subways or busses if they made owning cars bad by say restricting parking and not building lanes but whoever made that decision would probably be voted out

The solution isn’t more fast chargers. I don’t care if there is a station 1 minute away. If I have to wait 30 minutes to get going, I’m just not going to buy into that system. Forget it! What is needed is a way to quickly swap out a drained battery for a fully charged battery. Why not convert gas stations to battery-swap stations?

A few months ago, I posted here ::: Automated battery switching (swapping) is faster than gassing up (with gasoline). Instead of just choosing a single charging connector (CCS), there should be industry battery standards for sizes and connectivity. The swapped battery stockpile can slow charge in storage (even using local solar rather than electricity from the grid); the condition and range can be better monitored; removal from the transportation stockpile and recycling to less intensive uses (use as backup battery power for home generators, etc.) is automated; etc.. You can still charge w/o swapping, but for long distance driving, a 4-minute swap gets you back on the road quickly. No long waiting lines. Tesla beat down others promoting swapping and we're stuck with the charging station problem. ::: Battery swapping was used by Better Place (see Wikipedia) but they didn't have the clout of Tesla. I'm sure someone could even build an app (like Gas Buddy) to keep track of batteries and their charged up state at swap stations in each area.

This nailed it. I am interested in buying a new Chevy Bolt, but have no illusions of using it for cross state drives. With a level 2 charger on the garage wall, It will serve me very well for routine trips to stores, restaurants, the movies, family visits in the local area, even work should I desire to un-retire. Cost per mile is about 2.8 times less than a 30 MPG ICE car. For long distance travel, the ICE car will come out of the garage. I think many people are expecting too much from this new disruptive technology. For the next 30 years or so, It's simply not going to be the convenience equivalent of the older oil standard model, which took over a century of investment in infrastructure to build. Great video!

If half of the gasoline powered vehicles were replaced by EV's, there would not be enough electricity generation capability in North America to charge them all. The cost of electricity generation using natural gas is 1c per KWH. That price increases to 86c / KWH if the electricity is generated by wind, and 87c / KWH if it is generated by solar. The bottom line is that we need a whole lot more power generation plants if we all want to drive E.V.'s. Perhaps nuclear is the most viable option for that. Then, there's the issue of how to handle the old batteries come the end of their lives, not to mention the human and ethical problems that are a part of the mining of recourses required to initially build the batteries. The idea of an EV that is cheap to run is very attractive, but there are questions that need viable answers to.

What a joke - I can get almost 500 miles of range in a 5 minute refueling. I'd be damned to accept a less than half the range for a 30 minute charge. I think you've got it all wrong. The best way to solving the electric vehicle battery issue isn't to try and change the battery on the vehicle. It's design a standard battery that can be swapped out with another battery. That's how industrial electric vehicles have been operating for decades.

I'll pass. Battery manufacturing and component mining is more harmful to the environment than gasoline will ever be. There is not enough charging capacity for all of these future cars. The EV "craze" is all about money.

Batteries are less efficient in cold weather, thereby reducing range. I don't believe they will be able to completely do away with internal combustion engines, it's not very smart to think that it's feasible in the foreseeable future. Also, green energy will not be able to meet the demand. If they want to phase out coal then nuclear is the only viable option to be able keep up.

Much as I would like an EV, waiting any amount of time greater than filling a gas tank is too long for me. And since i live in apartments, and this wont change as i get closer to retirement, being able to charge an EV vehicle at home is impractical atm since most complexes do not have personal garages or charging stations in their parking spots. As for cost, unless an EV's car goes below 20k, its a waste of money for a single customer imho.
undraxis 11 daqiqa oldin
@DugThatOutMyself I live in an apt, no garages, no outlets near parking spot. Apt complexes will take a while to adapt to EV cars, maybe even to the point i'm no longer on this earth. Also have to worry about the costs of such upgrades of being passed on to tenants.

I've got a question nobody seems to be thinking about. These governments want to do away with gasoline powered vehicles in 15-20 years. How are you going to power a military the size of the U.S.? You are not going to power the military with EV's and it be effective without petroleum. Also, there is not the electric power generating infrastructure to meet the demand converting to EV's is going to require. We will not be able to build power plants fast enough to power all vehicles with electric alone in 15-20 years. Somebody is kidding themself if they think that is going to happen, it will take a lot longer than 20 years.

I can only imagine the fights which will break out when you pull in to charge and all are in use. You then find out there will be an hour wait, and if you don't recharge now you will miss your plane in three hours. You are behind Karen who will charge to 100%, and is 5 miles from home.

I have a real question! Since the united states wont build power plants anymore and we have a minimum of 300 million vehicles on the road. How under our 100 yr old outdated system can we even get to this place? Texas just over the winter went down because temperatures got into the 20s foe 3 days. Windmills and solar didn't work. Nobody wants nuclear especially since fukishima and crazy greenies want us all dead. Those who live in the fantasy world of electric cars sure don't have an answer to power grid supply which will need either coal or natural gas! Total scam!
