Electric vehicles are going to be a disaster. You read it here first, in case anyone asks. We are being dragged into a future of limited range, expensive, impractical electric vehicles, and at this point there isn’t much we can do about it.
Electric vehicles have so many drawbacks that it’s not practical to list them all in this short space. From batteries that can explode and are sourced in third world countries by children and forced labor, to extremely limited capabilities, especially on bargain brand models, EV’s are going to be a boondoggle.
Democrats and the hysterical climate change alarmists don’t care. Electric vehicles don’t really make an impact on carbon emissions, and arent practical, especially for the poor, but here we go anyway.
Recently one crafty owner decided to mod his Tesla and go on an 1800 mile road trip while NEVER stopping to plug up. How he modded it is hilarious and ironic. Check this out.
On YouTube, one man was able to take his Tesla Model S on an 1,800-mile road trip recently — and he didn’t have to plug the thing in once!
The catch: The guy behind the trip put a 400-cc gas generator in the back of the car, one that was so loud it got the police called on him.

Now, if you know anything about gas generators, 400 cc isn’t going to generate much juice. Size wise it is the only generator that would fit in the cargo area of the Tesla.
You have to give this guy points for creativity, and his point is well received. Electric vehicles are a pain in the rear end.
Mikka put the one-cylinder, 0.4L engine where the rear window was supposed to be on his Tesla.
“If it actually works, I think it’s going to be crazy,” Mikka said near the top of the video.
As Inside EV noted, that’s “because the engine he chose as a generator was relatively small — it couldn’t provide enough electricity to allow the Tesla to maintain higher speeds slightly above the legal limit without losing state of charge.”
So, despite the constant flow of juice into the batteries, it still wasn’t enough to keep the Tesla on the road, even at slower than normal speeds. Tesla’s are already notorious for the amount of time they take to charge, at fast chargers and at home. Though they have the benefit of longer range and more technology, they are too expensive for most folks who will have to sacrifice safety, performance, and range to be able to comply with what the climate whackos want. Forget that summer road trip, unless you have ALL summer at your disposal.
Thus far, this has been the biggest problem with EVs. Even at fast charging stations, cars such as the Model S can take two hours or more to fill up. At home, it can take up to a day with a fast charger and the better part of a week with standard charging.
So, here we go folks. A future full of “hurry up and wait” while we all charge our vehicles, likely with electricity from coal fired plants I might add. Sounds like good times don’t you think? Hopefully there won’t be too many roadside pit stops, waiting on portable charger trucks. I guess you could just bring your own. This guy did!
