The science of global warming is shit.

Telsa has a new car coming out. Have they figured out how people who don't have access to dedicated overnight charging stations are supposed to own one of their cars?

Vagrants aren't their target demographic.

$42,000, 350km range - that would actually be fine for me.

There are a lot of people who live in condos and apartments who could afford the car but don't have a parking garage or have stations installed in one. I am really skeptical of Telsa's ability to make electric vehicles popular  enough to be a major autobrand without getting past the charging issue.

Tesla has set up charging stations in California for quick charges while on the road. If they become popular enough I'm sure the concept will spread just like gas stations.

You are going to need a lot of charge stations to make it more convenient than a gas powered car.

It blows my mind why more effort isn't being put into hydrogen technology.

Are people just hung up about the Hindenburg and it being 'scary' or are there some real issues?

It costs a tremendous amount of energy to isolate and compress hydrogen. It's an inefficient technology. Since you need to generate electricity anyway, it's much more efficient to focus on battery technology.

Hydrogen is a horribly inefficient pipe dream for many reasons.

Biofuel would work with the existing liquid fuel infrastructure, electric with the existing electrical infrastructure.

The vast majority of journeys are short hops, if you can top up at night and while at work every day then full charges on the road will rarely be needed.

Tesla doesn't need to build them. Govts can actually profit off public carparks being installed with electric charge stations.

There's a carpark in sydney CBD that offers around 10 electric/hybrid vehicle only parking which is at the best location in said parking space.

I think business' would end up setting up their own charging stations to attract customers. In addition, they can have 'paid' charging stations where you can swipe your credit card.

Dilberts: Sad that biodiesel hasn't taken off in a mass commercial sense. Would've been an awesome thing tbh.

How Much Do Public And Home EV Charging Stations Really Cost?

I'd like to say that businesses are in a hurry to get these installed, but they just aren't. Even places the public would expect to be swimming in cash are balking at much cheaper, basic lot repair figures and often opt for bare minimum asphalt patching, curb replacement, and painting.

Electric car charging stations are still a rare sight here, and I hardly ever see them being used.

The free market will provide charging stations for cars that would not exist without government subsidies.
