Default Re: The Electric Vehicle (EV) Landscape - A Deep Dive

After driving the most acclaimed EV (Model X) present today for a few days here are my impressions -

Positives

1. Torque and Instant Acceleration puts a smile on your face everytime. Anything related to accelerating is a breeze
2. Cost to run - In the 1000+ (1600km) miles covered in a week I am looking at maybe 350 units of electricity and thats around a 1rs per km
3. No oil change after fixed intervals is excellent and brake pads last like 1,00,000 km due to regenerative braking
4. Its way too environment friendly.
5. Having batteries in the floor and evenly distributed gives the car excellent dynamics


Negatives
1. Range is a problem - With high running you need to charge everyday and sometimes you get a mindblock regarding moving around
2. The quality of cars made by current EV Manufacturers is way inferior to the germans
3. Disposal of battery is going to be a huge problem and waste to environment

Don't quite agree on this. There will be complete recycling much like Lead-Acid batteries today. Tech is already pretty well in, including some patents in India.

The rest is pretty much spot on.
