Quote from: albert7550 on February 07, 2024, 10:08:27 PMI always wonder who falls for these clickbait videos - now I know! I love my petrol cars, but after owning an EV I've realised how pointless petrol cars are (maintenance costs, fuel, engine warning lights ,DSG issues, and the best of all... no brake dust! ). The chance of a petrol car catching fire is significantly higher than an EV (yes, look it up e.g. https://youtu.be/9kNIyTQ2jeM?si=WvFLGSgrZk9Wsk2U). In terms of putting your family in one, any e.g. Tesla has better crash ratings than any petrol car, let alone one that is over 5 years old. Would you put your family in one of those?
I see the latest click bait is that electric cars are so heavy they destroy the roads and make parking garages collapse! Yet a Tesla model 3 weights the same as a 3 series BMW (e.g see the latest Carwow video with model 3 vs two 340d BMWs). But hey, don't let facts get in the way of a good story!

This will be my last post in the EV debate. Happy for the EV owners who enjoy their budget rides humming along quietly. I personally think EV's have not been manufactured safe enough for public use yet, hence why i will never put my family in one. For now i enjoy rollin coal.
