I plan to get one in the future, what are your plans?

If so what are your pluses or minuses ?

No. I live in a cold climate and the battery life is reduced in cold weather. They don’t Have sufficient range in the winter if I have to go to Kenai or Fairbanks.

Car batteries don't last too long in Phoenix either.

Is vrooom a sound or is it speed?

Nope, not for me. I guess its fine if you live in a city and want to be cool. But they are nowhere near close to making one that will pull a 24 foot gooseneck, eqip with a hay hauler, 4wd one ton


City people and yuppies good for them

I own a Prius and an F250, so basically opposite vehicles.

Electric drive motors would offer better towing performance, but the range and battery capacity needed to make it work isnít there. It would be interesting to see a hybrid approach where you could effectively add on a gen set module if you needed extra range beyond what your battery could provide. I agree they arenít that close yet so Iíll be happy with my Cummins until they get there.

There is no reason to expect an ICE motor to be more reliable than an electric motor.

No, I'd rather burn fossil fuels on my own rather than have someone else burn them for me.

There's not much of a reason to own multiple cars that do the same thing, IMO.
