Wanna travel 200 miles? Well, you are going to have to wait about 3 1/2 hours.
That’s what happened to some Tesla owners after what they experienced at a service station that had gasoline pumps and a Tesla supercharger.
Business Insider writer, Ben Berman, was shocked when he arrived to charge his Tesla. After what he saw he lamented wishing he could pay $6 a gallon for gas.
“The very rare time as a Tesla owner I wish I could pay $6/gallon for gas and be on my way. We need more super chargers,” he wrote.
Berman posted a video of at least 11 Tesla’s waiting to use the charging station.
According to Tesla’s website, a vehicle with a 15-minute charge at a supercharger station can travel up to 200 miles. So if you are the last car in the line and absolutely needed a charge it would be almost 3 hours before you would be on your way.
Just for fun, I looked up how many charging stations were in my area, there was only 1 within 30 miles of my home. In comparison, I’m within walking distance of four gas stations.
Gas economist Patrick De Haan added that owning an electric car is, “not all rainbows and unicorns even after spending $35-100k.”
But Biden and his minions just want you to buy an electric car.
Never mind the fact that China has corned the market on the raw materials to make the batteries and both major US EV manufacturer companies can’t meet the current demand (that was before the gas crisis).
For the most part, EVs are luxury items especially if you want one that has the range of a gasoline-powered vehicle. If you order one of Rivians EV SUVs (which look amazing) now you may not see it until late 2023 and Tesla is known for struggling to meet their deadlines.
Joe Biden and Mayor Pete berate Americans claiming we should buy a $50,000-$100,000 EV if we don’t like paying high gas prices. Meanwhile, they are doing nothing except shoddy tax credits to “help” Americans afford EVs. What good is a tax credit if it will take 12 months to get the car I purchased? What good is an EV if Biden doesn’t have a plan to create the infrastructure for charging stations? What good is a stupid tax credit if his administration can’t fix the supply chain they broke? What good is an EV if it takes me half a day to charge it? Lastly, what good is a tax credit if Americans can afford the added costs like insurance and higher electric bills?
Saying “just buy an electric car” shows just how out of touch these snobby elitists are.
