  1. Diesel cars banned in Frankfurt

    Yer but there’s no Tesla farm machinery yet so we don’t need to worry about it

    It does but do you honestly believe that it is only traffic that causes the problem ? Funny how the worst affected cities are those with industries or ship traffic. Yet once again it is the public bearing the brunt of it and being at fault and you keep that myth alive. I wonder how much less money businesses and you would have made with extra taxes on lorries,industries etc. It`s all well and good you opfering yourself now that you have the money to do it but when you didn`t have I honestly wonder how keen you would have been.   Tesla is not the answer to inner city pollution they are a tiny step on the way to it and until they bring out a cheap car that most people can afford they will just be a toy for rich people that has some good side effects. If I could have brought an EV for the price of my Fiesta I would have done and I`m sure many other people would have as well but at the moment it isn`t happening.   Norway is a good example of how to bring in EVs in place of ICE. In that they make the EVs cheaper in purchase price,charging,steuer and even parking and ferry costs etc etc than ICE cars rather than in Deutschland where they seem to (which you seem to be a supporter of)want to make ICE vehicles more expensive incl steuer etc than EVs. Also I have heard (could be bollocks) that there is no standard charging connection in Germany and that you have to actively seek out one that would fit your car ?

    The big difference here is that Cell phones and then smart phones were a new technology where no such thing existed previously (who would have thought a handy would replace landlines for many people )whereas an EV is new technology that is replacing something that exists already and is worth billions. It costs millions to produce a new model of a car so I can`t imagine how much it costs to develop and produce a new model that uses brand new technology and a lot of companys won`t put their full weight behind it until they`re sure that it is going to pay off.

    Most people have not been attacking him for having a Tesla but more for his certainty that it must be a Tesla because nothing matches up to it and anything else is bad.  
  5. And there you have the massive elephant in the room for US politics. Money and lobbying rules. It won`t get better (the US will be better or at least the basic humanity side of it)if the Democrats win in 2020 because despite what they say now greed and lust for power steers them too. Anyone who wants to critique that statement then please show me where they`ve shown the opposite in the past.

    That`s mostly worked but it has turned into a whole lot more than that nowadays

    Nope not jealousy just pissed off that he sees fit to insult everyone who hasn`t got as much money as him.

    Usually this sort of mindset if from people who never actually earned the money but have been left it by mummy and daddy.

    So you`re well off and have no debts. If you have as much money as you claim then I should fucking hope you have no debts.

    Or what about add 10k to the price of every EV vehicle which is then set aside to provide cheaper EVs for those who can`t afford them ?
  11. Diesel cars banned in Frankfurt

    Sorry but what a fucking wanker elitist you are. You know why poor people think of the immediate cost because that is what matters. Maybe they can afford 10k for a car that will cost them an extra 20k over it`s lifetime because they only have the 10k at that time. Then in a year when tax,insurance etc needs paying they then have enough to pay for that. But what they don`t have at the time they are buying a car is the 20k car that will only cost the say 25k over lifetime. They actually can`t in many cases afford to save money.   Come down out of that ivory tower of yours and sniff the real world.  
  12. Diesel cars banned in Frankfurt

    Yer those ones the people who can`t afford an EV have to buy.
  13. Diesel cars banned in Frankfurt

    Yes but I unlike what appears to be most of you on this board am not even middle class. 3 years ago due to various reasons I needed a car so decided to buy a new one rather than a used one. Brought a Fiesta cost me about 15k which I had to take out credit for and this strapped me.There is absolutely no way I could afford even 20k let alone 40k and couldn`t afford even a used EV. So to me 40k may as well be exclusively for the upper class. Still it`s nice to know that the people who can afford one and don`t think us lower class deserve one are cleaning up the environment for us.
