    They got lucky and took out a hudge loan right before the collapse. Worked out well for them, but if it wasn't luck, it was insider trading kinda shit. Southwest airlines did the same with a fuel purchase.

    I always thought this would be the best solution, but this video is from 2012, and I haven't heard anything since.

    Could you actually carry a gassed up generator to plug in if you needed, or would the weight of the generator + gas lower your range more than it would recharge it because physics?

    That's like saying it's not worth carrying extra full because of the weight. Come on man.

    Of course the generator might be a weight issue but it probably isn't since there are already vehicles with range extenders, the little electric BMW has one

    The first public 800w charger went live this week, thanks to VW and dieselgate. I read somewhere that Rivian claims you could convert the truck from level 2 to level 3 (800 watts) later on. So that's an attractive feature, you are not stuck with old tech as soon as you buy it.

    There isn't a car that can use 800 watt system out yet, which is kinda funny.

    Why are so many electric vehicles ugly as fuck? I get that they want to be noticed and not be another 5000SQ, but really. Tesla Model 3 is just a rehash of the Studebaker Avanti and the Rivian drivel, wtf?
