    Current electric cars are crazy. Flaw one, they are only for the rich, flaw 2 the driving range, flaw 3 the biggest one, the left is anti electricity production and will continue to shut down nuclear, coal, gas, Oil, and hydropower production. Nuclear and Hydro produce no carbon emissions, which proves that their claimed motivation is a lie. Now hydrogen cars could work. But leftists are not about resolving problems they are just pro Chaos that's the truth.

    I still think the hybrid design is superior because not only do you have electricity you also have either gas or diesel and quite honestly the most Superior would be something akin to a turbine engine which would be able to take all kinds of fuel. how they do it in locomotives for example I think is probably one of the best ways.

    An EV on a fast charger isn't the same as a space heater or even 5 space heaters though, in the UK at least the government incentivises the crap out of smart ones, they can actually make these brownouts actually *less* common because they provide a base load to the grid and can then the "smart" part, they respond to the electrical grid status. If everyone plugs in space heaters at the same time and the grid starts nearing an overload state then EV chargers across the city reduce their charge rate (or stop if its an extreme case) simultaneously, keeping the grid stable until either the load goes away or until power stations get their extra generators spooled up. It would often not really affect charge rates that much because they would most of the time only have to reduce for short periods relative to the amount of time most people leave their car plugged in when they get home from work. Also the camera battery comparison is ridiculous, camera batteries are completely different to car batteries, the way a camera uses its batteries is optimised for run time (so it charges them closer to 100%) and the batteries are undersized (meaning they need recharging a large number of times) that's why they go bad after a few years, EV batteries never charge to 100% (even when it says 100% its something line 90-95%) and it takes days of use (for most people) to get them through a full charge cycle, both of these things *exponentially* increase the lifespan so no... not 3 years... try 10-15.

    Wasn't there a time when gasoline cars were replacing the horse and buggy that they warned about the combustion engine, well, combusting? The threat of the explosion of the gas/air/spark mixture would explode the vehicle and kill the people in it. And go 30 mph? People would be speeding all over town and killing other people as they lost control. And so on. All new innovations have naysayers. Is the concept 'perfect' right now?

    Texas utilities simply didn’t weatherize their plants; that’s the root cause of this. Also, a gas powered (propane, gasoline, etc.) generator will recharge of an electric vehicle as a backup. Granted, if you are living in an area where there is weeks of no sun and single digits temps, then electric may not be desirable. Its rather disingenuous to get overly excitable about this right now since we are at the start of the EV technology development; one would imagine there were plenty of issues in cold weather when gas engines were developed originally .. until they figured a bunch of stuff out with engines, starters, batteries for chargers, etc.

    8:42 again Scotty shows his ignorance about new technology. So a Hydrogen car doesn't have to deal with the cold or a battery? Obviously, he hasn't learned how they work yet, nor driven one in the cold. Since the 2021 Toyota Mirai doesn't start up with the fuel cell, it starts with the Li-ion battery that Scotty claims doesn't work in the cold. The fuel cell keeps the battery charged like a series hybrid and takes a while to get warmed up and going, it would experience the same of his perceived problems as a BEV to get going. Granted a BEV doesn't have the enormous acceleration for the first few miles when it's below zero out, just like a gas engine doesn't either till it's warmed up.

    Sorry, but no. Everything is failing in Texas, not just electrical infrastructure. Many of the people with heat only have it because of their EVs. Huston Tx has a peak grid capacity of 67Gw and a typical peak usage of about 53Gw from 3-6pm on a summer day. The Off-Peak usage is about 29Gw, when the vast majority of people charge their EVs. That means that if every single person in the city went out and bought an EV tomorrow and plugged in to charge overnight the draw would only be 48Gw total, not even close to the 3-6pm draw. That means that if a grid can handle a busy summer afternoon of business A/C and commerce traffic, it can easily handle Off-Peak EV charging. A Bolt or VW ID4 will have cheaper maintenance and easier parts availability than any Tesla but the supercharger network might be worth the trade off if you live somewhere you cannot charge, like in an apartment that refuses to install chargers, or you do a lot of road trips.

    Scotty, you often have a lot of great takes, but I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. Canada, which is far colder than Texas has windmill farms that don't break down to cold weather because they weatherize their equipment. Looks like some corners were cut in Texas, and charging customers market spot rates for energy instead of running like a utility and averaging out costs has resulted in bills spiking to $7,000 when the supply is disrupted. This is poor management - not a lack of demand nor feasibility of electric cars.

    Hey Scotty, I think people are missing the point with electric vehicles and renewable energy. Coal, natural gas, and fossil fueled vehicles can co-exist together. We will not eliminate one or the other. They will co-exist to give us the best possible solutions to the problems we are experiencing today. Problems such as pollution, gas costs, increased energy demands, and failures from weather, natural disasters, etc. When natural gas and coal powered power plants fail, solar power and battery back up systems can help people during disasters like the one in Texas. When gas stations are shut down, or there are long lines, inflated prices, etc. electric vehicles can help us get around and even power homes during an outage. And electric vehicles won't cause brown outs. Keep in mind that when electric vehicles charge, their draw is comparable to that of other appliances in the home such as a/c, heat, water heater.

    If the power goes off use a generator to charge your car propane or gas generator

    Scotty lost me with not using / liking cordless tools. In my trade they are the greatest thing since spin on oil filters, (that was even better than sliced bread).

      @Zachary Zarko That's great. Something that no one will ever buy. A car with half the efficiency as an EV, has less passenger and cargo space because it's used by the tanks, weighs more than an EV, has a bazillion parts from filters, air pumps, needs maintenance every couple thousand miles. Costs 10 times more per mile to operate. Oh, that'll be a big hit. You do know how hydrogen is made, right? You can make it from natural gas through high-temperature steam reformation which emits CO2 during the process, or you can make it with electrolysis from the same grid and waste 75% of the electricity going from electricity to compressed H2 back to electricity to drive the wheels with it. In addition, 45 places to fuel up on H2 (pretty much only in one state) as opposed to 370 million electric outlets plus high-speed chargers all over the place. It's a cute idea but better served for transportation needs that have no other choices like shipping and maybe airlines with the occasional truck that needs to run 24x7.

      Toyota makes a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle called the Mirai. It refuels in 5 minutes, and the only thing that comes out of the tailpipe is water vapor.

    This was unwatchable from the get-go. The man may know cars, but he is not qualified to talk about electrical grids. Grids can be reliable - if we make them so. The failure in Texas was not an act of God, but an act of Republicans.

    This video is total nonsense. Just check how cold it is in Scandinavia where people are driving EVs all the time. I used to drive there a PHEV on pure electricity when it was -22 ˚F. No problems at all.

    I got a Tesla Model 3 and just went through two this winter snowstorms and a few power outages. It melts the snow and ice before I even get in and is already warm. The AWD is very fun in the snow. If one part of the grid goes down, just go another part of the grid. It loses like 1% in three days of inactivity. I'm not going back to gasoline. I understand Scotty, you gotta protect your brand.
