    There are TWO big problems with the entire concept:

    1) There is no way to make any battery take a real “quick charge” to its full capacity.

    &

    2) No nation produces sufficient electricity to run the scheme.

    So, the idea of everyone driving an electric vehicle, and of those electric vehicles replacing internal combustion engines, is a pipe-dream.

    Yup. There aren’t enough rare earth elements available to make the fad perpetual.

    Another liberal goal - control/restrict travel
    The liberal dems that run small towns in the uk are preparing for that by putting gates in and restricting people to geographic areas with only allowed so many days a year outside your assigned neighborhoods.

    Can anyone say ghettos?

    The Belvidere plant only makes the little Cherokee. That thing is basically just an updated Jeep Liberty and no one wants that turd. The real Cherokee is built at the Jefferson plant alongside the Durango.

    I've worked with around and on electric warehouse equipemnt ie Reach trucks,fork lifts, pallet jacks, dock trucks and more total of 108 machines between two buildings. Charging systems, three types of 24- 36 volt batteries. Wrenched on and used this Crap and all was the latest and greatest. We got new shit in monthly even batteries because they have a memory and when you mid charge rather than waiting until they run down we'll you guessed it they start to charge only mid way never full so cell's go bad.



    The electronics on the machines is Very sensitive and just the slightest interruption can put the machines down. EVs are no different. They claim they have conquered these issues but that's just marketing bullshit. They blamed the batteries so they went with Lithium. Same shit different battery.

    These machines were Raymond and Crown. Most popular for Warehouse and Cold storage.
    Yeah I know what's this have to do with cars and trucks. LoL same shit same technology. EV
