The future looks like a PITA

An F250 hauling an electric car to the charging station because it ran out of electricity

Might be time to invest in a flatbed trailer.

My free 8KW generator did the same thing after Ida.

I will say the good thing about the chargers in Lake Charles is that you can go check some knuckles at the Sonic next door while your car is charging

electric vehicles are dumb. Its only for people to stroke their ego when in reality they arent doing shite for the planet because all the parts on that thing come from places with no EPA and it still needs fossil fuels to charge.

Given that it's at a charging station, I'd imagine there may be bigger issues going on?

Is this LinkedIn? Can’t wait for the next freeze so I can see that same frozen windmill picture again

Or it just got there and they haven't unloaded it from the trailer yet?

Huge PITA.

Makes you wonder how people did it.

Yea man. Going from horses to cars is totally the same as going from cars with an established infrastructure of support to cars that you can only charge at night due to power concerns.

Totally the same!

Interesting. I wonder if there’s a picture out there of a car on a trailer that’s run out of gas.

Ah, misread it.


The future was always doomed if you're dumb enough to run out of gas or charge. Not sure how that ever happens to anyone.

Especially a Tesla as it'll warn you with plenty enough time when running low telling you to find a Supercharger to charge at. Then it'll warn you again. Then after you hit 0 miles you'll get another 10-20, so the world is more doomed due to stupid people than anything.

Tesla also has roadside assistance right through the app and someone will come out with a mobile charger, so this person more than likely just didn't want to pay for it.

Probably so but probably easier to pack a gas can to a car that's run out of gas than it is to pack power to a car that's run out of electricity.

Ok good, I'm glad I'm not the only one in this thread who whiffed badly. Thanks, this makes me feel better.

Or they are in a small town where that is not an option. Tesla still has a long way to go on its infrastructure and so does the power grid.
