We gotta start somewhere. As much as I hate to admit it - electric cars are the way of the automotive future unless someone commercializes hydrogen fuel cell or nuclear power.

However having said that I'd do what Ixeo do and let those who can afford it make it commercially viable for the rest of us normal folks. So in the meantime I'll keep buying petrol.

Wasn't electric looked into because they are afraid crude will soon run out..... :smokin:

not really.
As other people switch to electric, demand for dinosaur juice will drop, more juice for us!

Actually crude oil has so much reserves, still have alot.
"There are 1.65 trillion barrels of proven oil reserves in the world as of 2016. The world has proven reserves equivalent to 46.6 times its annual consumption levels. This means it has about 47 years of oil left (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves). "

Well with Euro clamping down on emissions, vehicle fuel usage will definitely drop. China also realises it cannot allow pollution to fog up Beijing, so the government would also steer it away from dino juice. Shenzhen for example, can only have EV cabs. So all cabs there are EV.

Which means... don't worry about dino juice!

but to produce electricity, you need fossil fuel/coal to burn.

More cheaper dino juice, more boosting, yayyy!
then kena out-paced, out-accelerated, out-everything by a electric vehicle......

Burn fuel directly like our car is 2/3 less efficient than using a pure EV that takes electricity.
Word is efficiency. But in Malaysia most powerplants using coal sadly. Malaysia lacking alot lol
well - someone wanted nuclear at one time and that was shot down kaokao. We do have windfarms but the scale is laughable.

and 49 years of fossil fuel isn't a lot leh.

ya. coal and diesel to generate electricity

Nuclear most countries who had nuclear are ramping down nuclear as they are unable to handle the waste.
and Windfarms is a no no due to the nature of recycling/dispose of spoilt turbine blade. EU is trying to not use it for future (maybe replace with something can be recycled)

still hydro, solar may be future to generate electricity but to which extend until fossil fuel or coal is not needed to create electricity?

Well we can definitely be noisier than the electric vehicle. Since it makes no sound. Nuclear is actually viable IMO, especially in Malaysia where we have no natural disaster to deal with. Then we eject the waste into space using SpaceX rockets.

Please don't say flood I'll slap you. Flood is just not enough money poured into engineering and gotten song lap by politicians.

Solar.

If solar panels can take up sun power, it will be great. Now its taking up a lot of space. Solar is best really.

It's ok la, I am not racing ma, I just want a fun car to drive myself. Now also already confirm in Malaysia that Myvi is king ma and Vios is God's car. Anyway if driving electric cars is like the experience I have playing those electric hypercars in Gran Turismo Sport then I don't want le, feels weird.

Not really, the output in our country is too low for it to be a reliable energy source. For very2 small scale maybe.
IMHO, in Malaysia hydro is the best. can double up as water reserve too until a very edfficient solar panel come up.

Solar is best overall i mean. Hydropower is too destructive to the environment.

for cars i believe in hydrogen fuel cell. But I wish the market would just focus on one and not have multiple different technologies and concentrate all their efforts on one technology.
