What It Is All About In The EV World? Fully Charged Explores The Topic – Video

JUL 22 2017 BY MARK KANE 8

In a recent Fully Charged episode Robert Llewellyn talk with Electric Vehicles Outlook’s Roger Atkins about what it is all about.

Electric Vehicles Outlook | Fully Charged

Electric cars in China, and globally, are rising, but that turns out to be just single element of a broader movement.

Autonomous driving, connected cars, zero emissions, environmental topics, and the ability to make money all combine together in the future.

Overall, a really interesting episode that we feel is worth a look!

“Roger Atkins is someone who knows about the global electric car picture. This is a big picture discussion.
In his time Roger has worked for many different manufacturers in Europe and the USA and most recently China.”

Sounds like (in the not too distant future) we’ll all be riding around in EV’s ….. but we won’t get to own one.

This video is so Backward, two sided & ironic . In the back ground he has a Tesla Power wall and firewood right next it, ready for Burning. Then on the other hand he’s talking green & clean energy . Meanwhile I read somewhere that Pollution from a fireplace when Burning firewood is the equal to that of running 100 old cars from the 1960’s or 1970’s not 100% on the yrs of the cars. But the soot & smoke is like that of an old Locomotive of the 1800’s Unbelievable. Wood Burning fireplace are being outlawed in many cities & rightfully so!…

The man will, step by step, insure that you are riding in an autonomous EV taxi.

Insurance and mandated equipment requirements will eventually make it impossible for all but the very rich to own their own vehicles.

Pretty cool, huh?

Excellent session. Car ownership has been a marketing bonanza. The EV has come of age for sure.

Electric cars in Asia are golf carts with no crash regulations. Competition is $500 scooters. Ignore that rambling nonsense.

Real electric cars with crash ratings use a lot of plastic. Plastic comes from oil. Oil also makes gasoline. Electric cars end with the subsidies, and we have a debt ceiling problem with unpaid EV tax credits.

Oh, and self driving cars? When was the last time you left a computer on for more than a day and didn’t need to control-alt-delete the mother eFer? You’re putting Windows 98 in the GD drivers seat you stupid a-holes. Even your “beloved” iPhone needs to be restarted every couple weeks. Memory leaks will cause deaths. The experiment will end as soon as it starts.

“Real electric cars with crash ratings use a lot of plastic. Plastic comes from oil.”

It’s only made using oil because oil is cheaper. It would be a bit more expensive to use sugar, but not much more difficult.

“Electric cars end with the subsidies…”

Clearly you’re just here to bash EVs and troll, not to contribute anything.

“Oh, and self driving cars? When was the last time you left a computer on for more than a day and didn’t need to control-alt-delete…”

Well, if I wasn’t a computer programmer, and didn’t know that Windows is about the worst possible example of programs that haven’t been properly debugged, then I might agree.

Fortunately, since I do know something about the subject, I know that it’s possible to make computer programs far, far more reliable than that.

“You’re putting Windows 98 in the GD drivers seat… The experiment will end as soon as it starts.”

Them newfangled motorcars will never catch on. It’s just a passing fad. Get a horse!

The one thing I’ve never completely understood about Europe is, what with their $8-$10 dollar/U.S. gallon (128 ounces)petrol, and their (only) somewhat higher price for electricity (let’s call it $0,18 per kwh on average), why the greatly decreased operating cost of EV’s is not causing many, many more sales of EV’s there.

Minimal U.S. penetration of the market can be reasonably explained away by electricity is simply too expensive in many locales to compete with extremely economical gasoline ($2,25 – 2,50 per US gallon).

But in Europe and many other locales, its a no brainer – and much easier to breath around then all those “Clean Diesels” that everyone is suing everyone else about.
