    Kenneth M. 2 месяца назад @drxym why are you critizing my dang phone???
  • drxym
    drxym 3 месяца назад That's because manufacturers cheap out on the hardware and so the software performance sucks. I see this in the place I work (not car manufacturing) where touchscreens contain a $10 mainboard. Any savings they made on the internals were destroyed by the thousands of hours of development time required to make optimize performance to be semi-acceptable.

    Zoaxe Mythale 3 месяца назад (изменено) @M Afaq Leaf starts at 27k here in spain. So yeah... many ppl wish to get an electric car (specially tesla). sadly i wont risk going bankrupt buying one. i would rather spend my money more intelligently. And honestly i don't evne like the leaf. i find that its overpriced for what it offers. Wish teslas were 30k euros here in EU. but thats not the case.

  • Ollie Ollie
    Ollie Ollie 8 месяцев назад I don't understand why the government has allowed companies to monopolise the charging market with subscription fees. The EU should have made one connector valid in Europe. These two things, along with only one charging point within twenty minutes of my house and work puts me off electric. I would commit today if those issues were fixed. Faster charging would also be a bonus - if we can get to the five minutes to fill up with fuel there won't be fossil fueled run cars on the road!

  • Glideman
    Glideman Год назад (изменено) Most EV owners charge from home. We pay 5p per KW for electric and on my 30kw LEAF that works out at around £1 per day for around 80 miles. Remembering you never use all 30kw every day. I used to run a V8 petrol Range Rover & one tank of fuel would cost me £100 per week. As you can see the cost savings are massive. Plus no tax, no repairs or much servicing. The best part however is the feeling you get when driving past petrol stations & watching other drivers emptying their wallet into fuel tanks! The world will be a better place when nobody’s driving around in polluting cars or sat outside school pumping fumes out for children to breath.

  • Nick Jones
    Nick Jones 3 недели назад Glideman one of the issues not mentioned here is the battery ownership cost, you can buy one outright for about £5000 on top of the price for the car. Otherwise its a......... wait for it....... £70 a month hire fee! Yep you hire the battery. Now if you do buy the battery and it will last around 8 to nine years and then cost £5000 to replace! So where is the saving now??????

  • beatonthedonis47
    beatonthedonis47 3 месяца назад @Joao Mont Cost of ownership and cost per mile is more important than list price. In Europe there are a lot of subsidies and tax breaks for electric vehicles. They're probably still more expensive, but all new technologies are at the beginning until research and development costs are covered and demand and economies of scale kick in.
  • Joao Mont
    Joao Mont 3 месяца назад (изменено) @beatonthedonis47 No I think it is more expensive than a similar gas car, way more, at least where I live

  • LP Youtube Channel
    LP Youtube Channel 5 месяцев назад (изменено) @morbeus Morbeus in life we often to have to take our own conclusions and ignore what markting says because they always say the same thing, BUY, BUY, BUY, the car I bought 2 years ago should be scrapped and I should get my 5th Car in the last 7 year's . This is exactly what causes pollution, constantly buying cars, waste, waste, this Notion if we buy Tesla with 18.650 cells we will save the world, is ridiculous, we can't buy our way out of emissions problems, because buying and wasting is exactly what causes problems
  • morbeus Morbeus
    morbeus Morbeus 5 месяцев назад @LP Youtube Channel being in mechanical engineering for the last 49 yrs I know oil is recyclable. The oil itself doesn`t break down, the lubrication properties deteriorate due to increasing air born contaminants, carbon build up caused by running at high temperatures, wear metals from bearings, cylinders, piston rings etc, acids building up from moisture if the engine is run to cold and the additives to prevent foaming and sludging breaking down. Yes it can be recycled but that in itself consumes huge amounts of energy.

  • LP Youtube Channel
    LP Youtube Channel 6 месяцев назад (изменено) Why Would anyone compare a Nissan Leaf with a Range Rover V8 😔 I mean, really 😕? Common you got to be kidding me !!! . You want to save Money, you buy a larger Honda Civic!!! For 18k as supposed to spending 26k with 8k in your pocket fuel & tax becomes irrelevant for the next 7 years. . if we pretend electricity is 100% Free
  • soundseeker63
    soundseeker63 7 месяцев назад @Reggie Buffat Do you realise that less than 30% of the UK's total electricity is generated from renewables? So at present there is a good chance these electric cars are being charged on power from gas, oil or coal. It's not eliminating the problem, merely shifting it away from the point of use. People who think they are morally superior because they drive an electric car need a realty check. Sure they are good in urban environments but they are not the panacea some people like to think they are.
  • taz874
    taz874 7 месяцев назад wait so your telling me a Range Rover is expensive to run? wow i never would of thought hey. seriously im all for electric cars but dont go comparing the cost to run them to a Range Rover that is probably one of the most expensive gasline cars to run. you would be better of comparing it to say a VW polo or something. Also the one problem with electric cars is the range yes while they are improving some people like me for example commute around 200 miles on a regular basis. i really cant afford to wait half an hour for my car to charge

  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 11 месяцев назад @DR. NITIN DEORA false, renewable energy is on the increase, only thing that stops being used more is the fact it's often available when not required ( wind turbines are now the cheapest form of energy) . So imagine 15 million cars all attached to the grid ( 90% of the time cars aren't used) what do you have? A massive storage system, you'll have a contract with your energy supplier where they can access 2-3 kWh of energy from your car at peak times ( the grid will be smart) in return the extra power produced by wind turbines/solar when not required will be available to those will the same contacts ( for a small fee no doubt). Again do so research
  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 11 месяцев назад @PriceyUK solid state batteries are just a couple of years off, & the new Hyundai Kona electric will do 320 miles on one charge ( I think after driving that far a 35 minute break maybe in order) solid state batteries will fill up in minutes & will have a life cycle of around 1 million charges ( probably last long enough for you & then your kids) do some research it's amazing what you actually learn
  • Dave Fitzpatrick
    Dave Fitzpatrick 11 месяцев назад @WTFIWFYDB battery replacement, pmsl, most manufacturers have a 8 year warranty on them, in 8 years electric cars will be mainstream, when batteries loose range its normally only a few cells that are the issue! 8 years down the line there will be garages that offer battery upgrades ( as servicing Ice vehicles becomes obsolete) the chemistry in these cells would also of improved, so your replacement cells will more than likely improve your original range! A growing portion of ev owners will also install solar panels, supplying free power for house & car! Do some research in future its obvious you don't have a clue

  • Sakarias Karlsson
    Sakarias Karlsson Год назад (изменено) Well the problem with current ev’s is that for most people its still ”spend a lot to save a little” batteries needs to get cheaper and easier to quickcharge and electric cars needs to offer similar performance to alternatives in their price class (except model s, its way too expensive for most)
  • chris is cool
    chris is cool Год назад Glideman definitely getting one for my next car...... In Ireland where I live the rapid charge stations are 100% free every carpark has at least three of them meaning you can charge your car for free at work every day
  • thepro08
    thepro08 Год назад thats truth but the fact is that evil oil is already making electricity more expensive... and when finally everyone is on EVS they will just keep increasing prices like they always did.... and you green fools can pay for it....
    DR. NITIN DEORA Год назад plus the electricity being produced that is used to charge the vehicle is also polluting the environment. thats like i don't slaughter.... i just eat meat pizza :-)
  • PriceyUK
    PriceyUK Год назад Likewise, the best part for non-EV drivers is when they drive past you sat waiting 45 minutes to 'fill up' your measly 150-200 mile range lmao
    WTFIWFYDB Год назад Also there are ecological issues with battery manufacturing and disposal. So you need to factor that in while discussing ecological benefit.
    WTFIWFYDB Год назад Comparing this car to Range Rover's fuel economy and repair cost?) Are you mad? Rover is a big money pit, gasoline equivalent of this Nissan would be - Honda Fit, Chevy Spark, Fiat 500. Then you can compare the mpg vs mpge, maintenance cost, difference in upfront payment, battery replacement cost, etc. And then the story would be much different.

  • captain pugwash
    captain pugwash Год назад You only get low tarrifs like this if you pay about 25 p per hour peak, so the true average electricity price is much more than 5p, therefore reality is somewhat different to what you are saying, unless you sit in the dark with all electricity in your house off around tea time lol.
