All right folks, NAIAS is on! Are you lost? Yes, I am talking about cars! The above five are perhaps the cars of the future. Funny enough two of them have name from physical measuring units, however that is for nerds to beckon, and Chevrolet Volt is doomed from the beginning anyway.
GM’s Rick Wagoner was frightened by the show off from Warren Buffet-supported Chinese BYD E6 doing 400 km from fully charged, whilst Chevrolet Volt is doing ridiculously 64 km! Come on!
Tesla Roadster from California was recently presented on YouTube as the fastest accelerating electric vehicle. After all, that is an American vehicle, but not very much supported by GM or Ford. I like it very much, want to test, however not buy yet.
Ford formerly owned the Norwegian Think. They do not even say how far it goes on their sites. Maybe they have removed it when they saw BYD. Ford did not manage to make Think a profitable business, I think it is because the cars specs just isn’t good enough for people to buy it. Compared to a Volkswagen Golf your yearly spend is about the same, and when you want to visit auntie in far-away-city you are… going to, heaven forbid, invite her over instead! Think just got a round of capital and need to work hard to hang in there.
I just can’t wait till I can by a proper electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle “off the shelf”! I want one now, my old car is crappy and 13 years old! I believe car sales the last couple of months show that I am not alone, everybody is waiting for these cars to become mainstream available. So what the f#$@, is taking the manufacturers so long? Are the entire car industry corrupted by oil companies? Are their researchers just not good enough? Are they not the right people to innovate? This is going to be world histories greatest technology leap into the energy climate era and so far Toyota is the only formerly known car manufacturer that is nearly hanging in there with their hybrids!
