Electric Car is dead!………….long live the gas guzzlers!!!

Posted: September 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

Just like every other “Green Dream” being pushed by misguided, uninformed and actually just plain greedy politicians, investors and eco-whacked out ENGO’s, this half baked idea of an electric car  has run out of steam, or should I say tax payer subsidized $$$$$$$.

Just as most responsible financial people have stated many many times over the years that IF the money (tax payers subsidies) run out on Green projects like cars, wind turbines, solar panels and biomass generation, the projects will go “belly up”.

These idiotic unrealistic experiments with our money have literally drained our economies so badly that now people are actually freezing to death in the winter because they can’t afford the cost of electricity to heat their homes!

Sad epitaph for a so-called “enlightened 21st century”!

Of course this whole Green Scam has been engineered by people who want us all to devolve to a cave-stage in the 8th century!

Toyota drops plan for widespread sales of electric car

Toyota, which had already taken a more conservative view of the market for battery-powered cars than rivals General Motors Co (GM.N) and Nissan Motor Co (7201.T), said it would only sell about 100 battery-powered eQ vehicles in the United States and Japan in an extremely limited release.

The automaker had announced plans to sell several thousand of the vehicles per year when it unveiled the eQ as an pure-electric variant of its iQ minicar in 2010.

“Two years later, there are many difficulties,” Takeshi Uchiyamada, Toyota’s vice chairman and the engineer who oversees vehicle development, told reporters on Monday.

By dropping plans for a second electric vehicle in its line-up, Toyota cast more doubt on an alternative to the combustion engine that has been both lauded for its oil-saving potential and criticised for its heavy reliance on government subsidies in key markets like the United States.

“The current capabilities of electric vehicles do not meet society’s needs, whether it may be the distance the cars can run, or the costs, or how it takes a long time to charge,” said, Uchiyamada, who spearheaded Toyota’s development of the Prius hybrid in the 1990s.
