Default What would be a reasonable range/charge time to get yoy to buy an EV vehicle?

Just curious. Would many people buy a EV vehicle for around $25K if the change time and range were better than the ones out today?

If I had a garage, I'd tolerate a couple hours. If not, 20 minutes. Range should be about what an average passenger car gets - maybe 250 miles.

So basically you're asking us, would many people pay a really reasonable price for an electric vehicle built on improved technology from the future?



I also have a question for OT: How many of you would let a super model suck your d*** if she were disease-free and had excellent BJ skills?

Super high voltage charging stations in the wild: no more than 20 minutes for 200 miles
At home: 4 hours for the same

You mean besides the ones we already get from our super model wives?

I was hoping that people would use currently created, but not used in a production vehicle technology standards for their answers, but I am open for the super model offer.

I can buy that you married a super model. But a wife that gives head? I don't think so!

I'm not familiar with such standards, but I guess you have my answer above - I need the standards to improve before I buy.

The 8hr/100mile charge sounds good, I mean thats like sitting overnight or all day while at work... But I would also like to see a quick charge feature or "turbo," charge where in an hour I could get like a 25% charge.

The problem is not so much range or length of charge time. It's having accessible charging stations, or condo/townhouses that use car ports to have an open outlet... What about charging stations at work? Yeah I'm sure a company will happily pay to have those installed...

10 minute charge time, 200+ mile range.

Feasable? Probably not.

You nailed it 100%. Overnight charging is all that's really necessary, and the biggest problem is the current lack of infrastructure.

Nothing like going on a trip and having to stop every 100 miles and wait 8 hours for your glorified golf cart to recharge!

that's why I really like the idea of a standardize battery and changing stations. Easy solution if the Manufacturers would agree.

Oh no, you'd have to spend several hours at a rest stop! Oh the horror!

I like the idea of modular batteries. Go to a station, get a 5 minute swap out with a charged battery voila! Bigger EVs could use more than one battery pack.

I don't really see this being feasible with current technology though.

they already have these for industrial machines so it's not like it hasn't been done before.

this.

100mi will only get me a little over halfway from Houston to Austin. I make this drive quite a bit so unless it can go 200mi after charging for 20min, its worthless to me. Also, where do you charge it if you live in an apt and dont have a garage? is every parking space gonna have a parking meter type of outlet? who pays for this usage? does that mean you cant ever have visitor parking in any apt ever again?

Can a mod edit the poll to include changable batteries as an option?
