    Why U compare petrol and electric (toster) cars?? There is not even one thing to compare those engines.... Make series with electric only don't mix them with petrol cars...

    1. zwierzu22
      Před 11 dny

      @odisy64 I was trying to tell U that most people thinking that is ecological to have electric car. And the truth is way different. No accurate method for battery utilization... Wich makes me really unhappy. Quarter mile it's the max distance for electric they can do couse they have limit. In a mile or even half mile distance they don't exist... The thing I'm trying to say it's not every technology it's eco and friendly and compare electric an petrol it's like compare rocket and jet fighter... They both fly but on of them cannot change direction fast. U wanna see the real difference? Drop them at race track for a distance couple laps and then 'See what's exactly happends"...

    2. odisy64
      Před 12 dny

      @zwierzu22 ya a quarter mile, that popular standard people use because its relevant? I haven't seen any other production car hit 0-150mph faster and its damn impressive it does it for a fraction if the price and while being a 4 door 4,800lbs car. These cars are for people who like green technology and those who dont care at all and and just want a fast futuristic car. I dont know what you mean by battery "utilization"

    3. zwierzu22
      Před 12 dny

      For what distance??? A quarter mile... Maybe it should go for 1 mile distance ?? Whole bullshit it's about being green and eco with electric... And the truth is there is no accurate method for battery utilization.
