    Yep. If you spend the money to be prepared.
    That's fine. 100 years ago no one could afford a car at all. Then they got cheaper.
    Probably impossible without gas pumps and jerry cans.

    Yep. 30 of the richest people in Manhattan being driven in their cars. Compare to today.

    What aren't small solar panels for constant trickle charging of EVs more common?

    (Unless they are common--to my knowledge, they're not.)

    Oh, please. "More than 15 million Model Ts were manufactured in all, reaching a rate of 9,000 to 10,000 cars a day in 1925, or 2 million annually,[47][48][49] more than any other model of its day, at a price of just $260."

    Model T production started in 1908 and ended in 1927.

    If you're going to lie about something try to make the debunk at least a little challenging.

    Yeah, there was a time when lower-middle folk could easily purchase a new car, cash upfront. Not many people doing that nowadays.

    In 1919 the Model T cost $500. Average income was ~$1520. (This was inflated from five years earlier due to war production.)

    no women allowed & compulsory hats
    cleaner air ?

    it looks scientifically logical to expect around 10 meters sea level rise as a minimum before 100 years from now.
    that will remove probably around 50% of all roads and 75% of all transit routes

    it will also wipe out 50 to 75% of all primary-capital citys.
    the number of highly productive production cits that sit on the side of rivers which make a vastly larger proportionate level of income for countrys will also be wiped out and probably not factored as important until after they have sustained un-recoverable damage.

    wall st and global stock markets are designed to profit from the massive losses
    so there is fiscal profitability in watching thw world burn by the current boom n bust economic systems.
    thats a bit of a stumbling block for the elitists who don't want the average tax paying citizen to realise that fact while they continue to do what the elitists demand.

    the cult-ist dogma is consistent
    dont be a party pooper, stop being soo depressing
    your such a conspiracy theorist
    ... all brain washed responses

    The IPCC predicts a WORST CASE rise of 1.1 meters by 2100. That's far from 50% of all roads.

    There are women in the picture, you just don't know what to look for. Hint: Women's hats were much larger than men's.

    the flare on 2 hats side by side make the appearance of a poor image of a womans hat, but is not a womans hat, but instead 2 mens hats side by side.

    there are no visible women in the picture.

    Because it's not enough area to charge such a large battery in a reasonable time.

    Like I said, you don't know where to look.

    And if you can't tell the difference, you don't need to know.

    personally, I am holding out for a long-range 4 wheel drive work truck that has the capacity to tow a minimum of 3 tons and can run accessories ... and I'm not alone. A large number of rural people that I know pretty much feel the same, especially around farms. Sometimes ya just gotta have the longer ranges (etc) because of the work involved and the lack of direct routes (or, like where I live, even roads).

    Around here, fast is cool, and electric cars are nice for the townies, but work trucks abound as the primary vehicle of most people.


    EDIT: I hear Toyota is looking into the electric 4WD market, but I only have a non-verifiable source for that and Toyota isn't talking to me.

    I should have thought the towing would dead easy with an electric vehicle. The torque electric traction can deliver at low speed is phenomenal. And presumably range for a work truck is not hugely demanding. I feel sure it won't be long coming.
