Pony Express went from Missouri to California in 10 days.

On horse.

And Volkswagen is all giddy about their accomplishment.

“The 6,700-mile scenic route, much of which took place along the southern edge of the lower 48 states, took 18 days.”

Direct shot across the US is 2500 miles
They took the scenic route

Where's all the electricity going to come from to charge so many of these overrated cars? And mining is a very dirty business; the rare earth minerals needed for these electric vehicles must be mined.

The CCP loves it though as China has a dominant market share of rare earth minerals.

Then what to do with all the huge, worn-out battery packs. Ship them to the third world to be forgotten about?

I just spent 12 hours driving from Virginia to New Orleans today. About 40% of a cross country drive.

What are they going to call it the "Conestoga"? Notice? It comes with a gun.

Electric cars have been around since 1888.

Disagree. We’re struggling to put men in space, we can’t fix pot holes, electricity shuts off randomly in the west and drinking water is scarce in the west.
