Yeah except who the hell wants a $100,000+ pickup truck with one seat?
I'm not 100% sure that is only one seat (one person). It looks lit the body widens towards the back of the cab. That said... it would be reminiscent of a 1930's cab, which barely can fit 2 people on a bench seat.
Several reasons I won't buy an EV any time soon:
1. Range (although it's getting better)
2. Time to charge
4. Uglyness (aka Prius... although that is a hybrid and I said EV)
5. Battery Materials... Extremely toxic, another limited resource, and no proper disposal.
I would have loved to seen the market go more towards Hydrogen Fuel Cells, but there are obvious issues with that as well.
Lithium ion batteries are less toxic than the lead acid batteries used in conventional engines. They're actually more landfill-safe. Once the recycling for these catches up to lead acid battery recycling (around 99% in the US), then they will definitely be the safer, cleaner option.
"Once"... More like if. Many "environment saving" technologies are actually not recyclable or its so hard to do that it costs more than just to make new ones. IFor Li-Ion batteries its so hard, that manufacturers actually buy old ones to put them all together to a huge one, to have some use from them still, which of course is extremely inefficient when charging or transporting.
You should inform yourself better how these resources are being mined and by whom and what their working conditions look like. Double standards par excellence.
But if you seriously compare tiny lead acid batteries, which can actually very easily and inexpensively be recycled and thus arent that bad for the environment, and will be sucked completely dry in an hour by my stereo running alone, with maybe 40 to 120 Ah to huge batteries like in the Model S with up to 100 KWh, then I dont think its even worth continuing...
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
