    Electric scooters are a children's toy or for handicapped mobility not legit transport.

    That's why electric motorcycles are such a bad idea. They aren't big enough to get a good amount of range out of a battery that can fit in the frame.

    Battery tech needs to advance a lot before crap like this is anything more than a novelty.

    Gasoline doesn't have to cost $7 a gallon to have low unemployment. Also I paid 2.64 yesterday for gasoline. I do think we should be collecting our own. I don't really care how it makes us look at that stupid g7 popularity contest.

    I care about having a functional economy

    How convenient for Fauci's finacing the Chinese Virus to enable Biden to close churches and businesses to give him the power to dictate the economy in the US.

    Duh, but remember, they are bought and paid for. Our "leader's" jobs are to sell us out.

    BS... Trump fought closings of schools and churches... it was all Dems. Heck, many Republican Governors outlawed mandatory mask wearing, school closing, separation, business closing, etc. while Repub Governors relished in the power to subjugate citizens with these things.

    You've obviously never dealt much with the government or EPA. The stated goal of this administration is to eliminate IC engines in new vehicles by 2035. And EPA has that authority to do it.

    And rational thought is not the strong suit of the Biden administration.

    It says that by 2032 manufacturers have to make 67% of their vehicles EVs.

    If the manufacturer makes them, then that's pretty much what dealers have to sell.

    It wasn't a lithium ion battery.
    That didn't happen
    You're wrong but believe what you want.

    so what kind of batteries did these electric cars that were parked in this parking garage have?
    so you don't think electric cars have batteries I'm sorry to be the one to break this too but they both have a 12 volt battery like a normal car and they have a lithium ion battery.
    What am I wrong about
