Re: Tesla Roadster 2020

Well, I like my ICE equiped car, and looking at Cuba I should be able to keep it running a long time

And about EV's, there might be backpedalling. Like (again in Holland, I follow the Dutch news so..) they now figured out that chopping down forests may make for CO2 neutral electricity but is actually very polutant. Looks good on paper but most woodchips come from abroad (americas I believe) and have to be boated to Holland . Also whole habitats are being destroyed in the process with large impacts on wildlife, as a forest does not grow back overnight. And environmental action groups have to nerve to say that they are not to blame, 'they were wrong but did not make the final decision, and can therefore not be blamed'.

So maybe at some point politicians will come to their senses too about EVs. How can a 2500kg Tesla, including productions and use, be more eco friendly than a 800kg Suzuki ? Its just such a pity that before stupid politicians come to their senses a lot of money and resources have been wasted, which Joe Public has to pay for.
