EVs will end like CNG

Red government rush to change tings but does lay down the foundation.

We dealing a lackadaisical red government that does not have a clue.

How will someone that lives in a tower block or one of those HDC homes get to charge their kart .

Or you live where you have park your car on the street

Zoom acting like the govt ban regular vehicles. If your circumstances don’t allow you to charge …… simple don’t buy one. Lol

Zoom you're ridiculous now, any credibility your arguments had before is now being overshadowed by pettiness and hate..

As the guy said just don't buy an ev if it irritates you that much..

Funny you think only T&T floods, electric vehicles have been proven to be more capable in floods than ICE vehicles, you know no ignition systems, intake and exhausts to be flooded, wading depths in upcoming electric pickups and SUVs are unprecedented. All they have to do is waterproof sensitive components with seals man..

CNG was pushed on the population, did it take off?

The UK wants total EVs by 2030 , but in the UK they are making provisions and foundations for EVs to accommodate this transition.

We have seen how CNG was pushed and failed. It was hyped up since the mid 1980s . We are in 2021 from 1985 has CNG improved ?

What makes you think Trinidad is really ready for EVs?

People want to make money and that's the bottom line.

A fool and his money is soon parted.

Zoom is not now people living where they can't accommodate cars you know, many people's property acquiring criteria revolves around having a car or not and that influences their choices and options to suit, that's nothing new. What about the hundreds of thousands that have a parking spot ?

And do you know one fo the major criticisms of grid electricity was how are they going to get it to every home ? It's not rocket science to provide secure public access charging options on any curb,kinda like parking meters, or reconfigure charging ports for secure random outdoor charging, from something like a drive up wheel clamp like port to an undercarriage contact point port..

yeah i agree... govt not pushing anything and if they did, it would just be another empty promise. no one forcing anyone to get an EV in trinidad. if you parking on the street then dont get an EV.

Question, have any of you brought in an EV as yet?
I personally have never gotten under the hood of one.
Do we have the same kind of inspection checklist by License office? Are any of the parts in a grey area legally?
What I'm getting at, if say,I want to bring one, what are the guidelines and requirements ?
It seems like a good way forward to me,its just the banana republic red tape I worry about.

Dealers don't typically go through the same channels as an average person to buy cars online such as the Japanese online foreign used cars that people bring down themselves individually. Dealers typically go through a bidding process online which can be at any time throughout the day or night due to time zone differences, they put money in their auction account as it is required which they then use to bid for cars online which they get much much cheaper than the cars you see on those Japanese foreign used car sites.

avg market price of a 2019 Leaf - 2.3m jpy, say $21500 usd

Freight - $1300 minimum

u feel the exporter doing anything for u for free cus u a dealer? exporter profit - $1000

Total - $23800 usd cnf

and these figures still on the very low side, just educating the germs who feel they know everything

I was at an energy thing some years ago and missed the chance to ask Roger Sant if CNG was ever used in a motorsports or performance setting, which is why I think it didn't catch on (in addition to some other reasons).
Electrics and hybrids have been pushing the performance and design angle for some time now. Monster Tajima destroyed the Pike's Peak records he set in those ridiculously powerful twin engine Suzukis with a not as impressive looking electric. Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren set the standard for performance hybrids with the holy trinity in the early 2010's...and CNG was pushed as a conversion kit to rob you of trunk space so you could drive slower and wuk taxi.

Would you really watch those Rimac vehicles and call them golf carts though?
