I recall at Cobo Hall how GM had a short test track set up indoors. They were giving rides in what was claimed the first in show test drive.
Several years later I got to drive my first Volt. This time it was out in the cold Cleveland winter. It was quiet accept for all the snow hitting the inner fenders.
Then I was presented with an opportunity to drive the Hydrogen powered Chevy.
At that time I never imagined how far and fast this tech is moving.
I too discovered the torque in the hydrogen car. I asked permission from the GM rep and he said have at it.
I really don’t have issues with electric cars other than the lack of sound and smell of mechanical performance. Let’s face it Geddy Lee would never write Red Barchetta about a Tesla.
Here in Connecticut, and I'd guess in sunnier areas, folks use Solar panels coupled with batteries that store energy during the day, and transfer energy to vehicles at night.
I've thrown in the Austin to Chicago route as an example. I can easily beat the Tesla to Chicago with time to take a long nap or spend a quarter of the day at an all you can eat buffet and still beat them there. When I had to do that route and used the Austin to Chicago route, they were like why would you do that? Simple I had to, I could do it and a flight would have cost way more than it cost me to fill up in the roughly 17 hours of driving. I still averaged 25+mpg in my Supra, 22+ if there were some "high-speed testing" involved. :^)
