@nattkins I have a 5kW solar array too. I’m right there with you 👍🏻 @josheac @vijayasankarv @KelleyBlueBook BloombergNEF in their 2019 report said parity at 2022. In their 2018 report… https://t.co/U9FKMBhLfa @JAdP I have an EV and solar. I don’t see the need for a battery here, but obviously that depends very much on local grids, incentives etc @josheac @vijayasankarv @KelleyBlueBook That’s a snapshot. You need to look at the trend @dahowlett Best option! @JAdP Exactly @CloudOfCaroline Absolutely Caroline. An EV is always the best option environmentally speaking. Be it from a climat… https://t.co/2W60Nw1wsH @JoeBaguley My first time driving an EV was a prototype Leaf in 2010 and I knew then my next car would be an EV.

Warranty taking care of it? @se38 @jspath55 Oh no! What car did you have that the battery died? @se38 @jspath55 Excellent! @enleeten So, two things: 1. It’s an EV, so maintenance is not an issue! And 2. The Model S does 0-60 in 2.4 second… https://t.co/kVw0NygR7T @enleeten The Roadster does 0-60 in 1.9 seconds... @supplychnqueen Indeed, the sooner we transition to clean meat, the better for all @supplychnqueen Ok, gotcha. Obviously that’s not the case. Though they are far better than ICE vehicles regardless… https://t.co/FaczB0MMK4 @enleeten But if a Model 3 can smoke a Corvette (and it is cleaner, and much cheaper) why would you want a Corvette? https://t.co/wNSdMb3LpxTo your point @supplychnqueen - the carbon intensity of your grid is irrelevant, EVs are still the better choice fo… https://t.co/EgjVAlEhR2 @jspath55 I don’t know tbh.

Tesla’s are 500km or over. There is no journey in Ireland ov… https://t.co/oyUjLVdOgJ @jspath55 I sold my hybrid last Dec with over 100k KM on the clock and replaced it with a BEV. Zero regrets since! @vijayasankarv Keep resale value in mind. An ICE car bought now will have close to zero resale value in 3-5 years @rfavali Florida man! @rfavali Wow, that’s impressive @xto9074 Honestly I have no idea. Maybe try charging a full EV on your system and see what happens... @thomashazledine Absolutely, the instant torque at any speed is so much fun! @rfavali Nice Ron. We installed a 5 kW solar array last year @supplychnqueen So grids are going green. An EV gets greener as it’s grid gets greener. ICE vehicles only get dirtier with age. @thomashazledine Looks is subjective, but for handling and performance nothing can beat an EV @paroleacaldo I do live in a detached house. I asked a local electrician to install the charger but I know Endesa d… https://t.co/w0AKMaxhG1 @paroleacaldo I can’t afford a Tesla but I have a fully electric Nissan Leaf.

Diesel engines use about 30% of the energy in the fuel to move the veh… https://t.co/3h0rYVIxQP @AB_Cyclist Yes! @loriMho The most efficient form of transport there is @Mat_Germain_ @elonmusk @Tesla 🤞🏻 @OliverGumby Well said 👍🏻 @AB_Cyclist Self-charging hybrids you mean? 🤣🤣🤣 @Raphaelle_Gomez @Groupe_Renault @GroupeRenaultEV The new Zoe is an awesome car - an fantastic combination of price and range @Mat_Germain_ That would be incredible. Even if as an option. @AntonBoym Yes, in cities with great public transport, definitely no need for a car @MariaForestRang Surely the Cybertruck’s range of around 600km makes that an non-issue (or the Model 3’s 500km)... @tpowlas Unfortunately for the foreseeable, that’s not an option for me @dschatsky That’s a great position to be in 👍🏻 @Mat_Germain_ I know. It’s an amazing looking machine. Unfortunately it wouldn’t be practical here in Spain (too big for most car parks!) @loriMho Indeed a great choice - I would have included that option but Twitter polls only allow for four options @AntonBoym An even better option Anton @AB_Cyclist Right?
