Truly astounding that over the years, we haven't realised that...
...of 100% petrol, we only use 15% for driving and the rest is lost in heat.
...that we simply brake away endless amounts of energy everyday instead of somehow reusing it.
...of 100% of cars, over 80% drag along additional wearing parts just so that this highly-complex marvel of a gas explosion machine does not fail. Belts, camshaft, spark plugs. Oil pan, fan belt, gearbox. Air filter, oil filter, radiator. An e-car does not need any of those.
In any case, there seem to be some points to be raised in favour of a change in technology. Worth a try, right? You have very little to lose in doing so, if you don't like it, simply stick with the old technology. Conventional petrol models are not about to disappear anytime soon either. After all, traditional record players are still around today ;-)
One more thing: If you do happen to book a test drive today (just like that and without any intention of course), then don’t say we didn't warn you. Prepare for the worst. Expect to fall in love all over again. Fancy a bet?
