I don't expect to see a viable EV in my lifetime unless the Tesla 3 is better than I expected. I will more than likely have to settle for a LSV for around town. It takes about the same power as a...

If they did ride 10 to the bus? We all know that off hours they don't tend to run 10 to the bus. Still it cost more to build, is replaced every 5 to 7 years and if it used ICE runs for the entire...
