  •  Massive infrastructure! (0+ / 0-)

    So like you're going to have a POS credit card system for every parking space?  Can you imagine how much copper you'll need to create enough charging systems, to replenish ~10% of all the cars on the street at any given time?

    Right now I can go to the pump, and deliver about 8  non-stop hours of driving on my vehicle in less than three minutes.  If it takes more than 10 minutes, you will need several times more refueling stations as currently available.

    People haven't worked out the fine details.  That's what keeps people like me employed.

      Do you refill your gasoline in a parking space?

      Didn't think so  ;)  You refill it at a gas station.

      Now apply the exact same situation to EVs.

      •  As I'd already stated (0+ / 0-)

        It is physically impossible to transfer that much electrical energy to a series of batteries that quickly.

        And if you use a massively parallel solution (using 10 chargers for example) it'll take a long time just to hook up the car!

        •  It's already being done (0+ / 0-)

          Just a couple examples.

          You say it's impossible.  People are already doing it.  Your word versus reality... I'll go with reality.  Heck, are you trying to claim that Subaru is delusional?
