Just by chance during a Google search, I happened to come across the fact that someone has bought the domain names ChevyBoltSolarCharger.Com, NissanLeafSolarCharger.Com and Model3SolarCharger.Com.
So, the standard line about electric cars and maintenance is that they require a lot less maintenance, and money, than gasoline cars. With four-and-a-half years of electric car driving under my belt, I can attest to the truth of this statement: My personal experience has shown that EVs require A LOT less money to maintain than gas cars. This is true for everything -- except when it comes to tires!
So, today was day two in our 1,200-mile journey from Denver to Santa Barbara in an all-electric Chevy Bolt. [Read about day one, Littleton, Colo. to Green River, Utah] Today proved that, yes, you can make it with an electric car on a long-distance road trip even when things go wrong/don't work out as planned -- but, honestly, the average person is not likely going to want to go through the kinds of things I, and my two daughters did, today on our long-distance leg of 400 miles from Green River, Utah to Las Vegas.
A lot of people who don't know much, if anything, about electric cars and/or "hate" electric cars (read: some ICE-heads) think they are/claim they are 'too expensive.'
I've written before about how an 84-mile EV -- a 2014 Nissan LEAF for which I started a three-year lease and then saw my now ex-wife move out six months into the lease -- severely limited me and my driving possibilities here in the Denver area (although it was good enough for virtually all of my Boulder-Denver-Aurora driving).
Solar charged-driving from Christof Demont-Heinrich I put together a PowerPoint on solar-charged driving to present at my Unitarian Universalist Church on April 15, 2018. Enjoy :-)...
