Why are we falling all over ourselves creating an electric vehicle recharging infrastructure? According to its website, Tesla plans to build “Supercharger” stations along major highways to charge its Model S and Model X cars in minutes instead of hours. In fact, why build even one more charging station? We don’t need them.
Indeed, if transportation statistics are anywhere near accurate, we could probably reduce CO2 emissions by as much as three quarters without having to construct a single, solitary charging station. Better yet, we might even save money — at least in comparison to the high cost of current electric vehicles — by engineering our pure EVs with less range.
Less range? Are you kidding me? What about range anxiety? What about all the money being spent developing the 500-kilometre electric car? What about Elon Musk and all his Superchargers? Where are you getting this hooey?
