MY first car review/test drive: The 2017 Chevy Bolt
http://electrek.co/2016/01/06/chevy-bolt-test-drive/
I have two electric cars at home – a plug-in Prius and a base model 2013 Tesla Model S. Yesterday, I drove the car that felt like their natural offspring: the compact crossover Chevy Bolt...

For $30,000 it better have a 400 mile range. It also better come with a portable solar charging station that can charge it in under 5 minutes.

Most people when they hear electric cars thing economic. They never think about the efficiency of the plant it comes from and all the step up and step down transformers between that plant and their car. That lack of efficiency is part of it.

They also don't consider how when you put more of these cars on the grid it increase the current load on the grip which increase heat of the cables which increases resistance and cause even more power loss due to heat.

So until the US rebuilds the vast majority of the electrical infra structure these cars have about the same or worse efficiency than any petrol car.

Even if I bought a $2000 junker that got 15 miles a gallon at the 1.65 a gallon I could drive 254,000+ miles on the remaining 28,000 dollars. That is about 20 years driving for me.

There are also 7 or so brand new cars under 15,000 that get even better gas millage such as the chev spark LS which gets 31 city 39 hwy cost $12,995.

For that list.

So what it boils down to are you getting your moneys worth? No, nor are you saving the environment any.

I've worked in power production and with electrical. I was a Naval Nuclear Reactor Operator / Electronics Tech. After which I worked for US wind power for a short time before going to work for DOD/DLA doing electrical. Primary work after which was electrical and equipment engineering and computer science.

My name is Bella my husband is John i have a word to all my viewers in the world After being in relationship with John for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster his name is Dr LarryOdumera, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day,. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drlarryodumera@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything like societal influence, being great among others, Spiritual protections, cure for any kind of disease like Cancer, HIV etc. YOU CAN EMAIL HIM WITH THE EMAIL ADDRESS: drlarryodumera@gmail.com OR YOU CALL HIM WITH THIS NUMBER +2348168473470
