    Living with an electric car for six months changed my mind about how I feel about them. I have range anxiety. When you're driving a Nissan Leaf, it has the equivalent energy in the battery pack of less than two gallons of gasoline. That not only tells you how energy dense gasoline is, but also how wildly efficient electric cars are, as the Leaf gets 150 miles on the equivalent of 1.2 gallons of gas.
    And while the benefits of electric cars are clear, for example instant torque, quiet ride, low CG, and much more emissions friendly, they do come with lower range and longer recharging times versus filling a gasoline tank. So after living with a 151 mile range Nissan Leaf for 6 months, how do I now feel about EVs? Quite different, actually. Check out the video for full details!

And through this whole video, you failed to even mention global warming. You aren't doing a good job educating people when you do that. You are just trying to be politically correct so as to not offend your subscribers. The ones that deny science and refuse to accept fact based reality. It seems odd that someone who is into science and engineering would behave this way. I guess it is about money. Congratulations on your 2 millions subscribers. I guess it's working.

+Chickhunters I don't know where you got that 90% figure. I looked it up and both globally and in the US it is about 65% of electricity generation comes from fossil fuels. A lot of that is from natural gas which is the cleanest fossil fuel to burn. Obviously 65% is not ideal but still better than an ICE because gasoline only comes from only one place -- oil (and coal theoretically, if we ever move to coal-to-oil plants when we run out of oil, which is very inefficient). By contrast, electricity can come from dozens of sources of varying cleanliness. And EV's are more efficient than an ICE even if that EV gets its electricity from fossil fuels. I believe those subsidies are for fossil fuels overall. The IEA and others have done studies, you can google them. One example off the top of my head would be the destruction of North Dakota's roads due to all the tight oil being pulled out by truck. The taxpayer pays for rebuilding those roads, not the oil companies. And I don't believe those oil companies pay much in the way of taxes to the state. I've had my Leaf for 7 years and while there are some annoying aspects to it, I would definitely not say it is inconvenient and unfeasible. Expensive to buy ... yes, because I bought it new and it was new technology. All new technology is more expensive. Saying that EV's are too expensive and always will be is like saying the first iPhone wasn't onto something revolutionary because it was more expensive than the boring flip phones it replaced... In retrospect I should have waited a couple years and bought the Leaf used. As mass production ramps up they should automatically come down in price comparable to regular vehicles.

+mark2073 Are we talking about vehicles or fossil fuels ?, because you do know that that more than 90% of the electricity used to charge EV's nowadays are generated from fossil fuels, which is what makes them financially bearable in the first place, otherwise the cost of charging up one of those things would just make them even more unfeasible than they are now, so EV's do require subsidies on the energy side, the production side and the sale side, and those subsidies do require someone to pay up and surprise surprise, it's the public, not the eco gods. Which makes them too expensive, inconvenient and unfeasible.

If I want to visit my Family in Scotland it would take an overnight charge £4 then £13 for an 80%charge so another £6.50 to get me to my destination, time spent at chargers ,1-12 to 2 hours. I fill my ICE vehicle up drive all the way there with some breaks say 1/2 hour in total do loads of driving about and I still have over a 1/4 of a tank left after 400 plus' miles, it's a no brainier.

Great video...of course its awesome. Im old guy now but way back as a teen I threw a rod on my go kart...there was an old washing machine in the garage. I ripped out the 1/3 horse AC motor and McGivered it into my kart. 100ft extension cord was all i had but it was a FUN 100ft. Being a poverty stricken teen I didnt have a bunch of car batteries and a DC motor so that was the end of that. Instead I got a couple of junk mg midgets and built my first car out of the rubble. Please stop encouaging the running of caution lights. All modern cars record driving data when the cops discover you punched it you WILL be deemed at fault if there is a crash or death. Use you amazing brakes or just maintain your speed through the light.

What you've failed to explain is the charging system. What are the specs for it? Did you have to upgrade your electric panel? What is the max current draw from the mains while charging the car? If everyone in your neighborhood took your advice, what would be the impact on the utility company to bring in larger lines and transformers? We can run this all the way back to the power station. The main point of EV seems to be "saving the planet from anthropogenic global warming." What is the fuel source for the power plants in your area? Coal, NG? at the very least, the peaking plants would come on line to meet the demand of the car charging. Most of these burn NG. What about when the weather is 105 and the A/C is running max. You bring the car home and plug it in and it draws a shitload of amps to recharge while you're running A/C cooking dinner and doing laundry. If you're going to be an engineer, you need to look at the ENTIRE system. Not just your car. I believe you're in SoCal and the grid there gets stretched hard on hot days already. Adding more load to it to charge cars is going to be a problem. We can, of course, quantify it and make some projections based upon sound electrical engineering principles.

No matter what is said about the current EV technology, regardless of manufacturer, they simply they don't have enough range, they take too long to recharge, they lose power as the battery gets low. Develop an EV car that has gasoline ICE: range, refill time and full power regardless of fuel level and get back to us. Otherwise, EVs will always be simply be no more than what they now are, a novelty for geeks.

It's just too small and ugly, same as i3 volt.... Only ev that's looking good is tesla, but it still cost's a lot! 3. You forgot to mention that electric cars has nothing to repair, it will never have transmission problems, fuel pump problems (diesel owners will understand) etc.... It has so little things that could brake down that eventually it will save you fortune in garage bills

Let's see you live with an electric car for 15 years or more without having to replace the battery and paying $5000 to $7000 for the job in a car that's going to be worth much less then the cost of battery replacement at the time. This is the ultimate drawback of electric vehicles. You can easily drive an internal combustion engine car for more then 15 years, if you're not a total moron and destroy the engine sooner. In the video you don't speak about maintainece of the Nissan Leaf. It would be interesting to hear about that. Does it even require some?

I think this brake pedal dead zone may be like when you are racing in a track and hit the curbs. All the vibration and shakes make the brake pads move away from the rotors, so at the end of the straight/next turn you give a little pump on the brakes before the actual braking point , so the pads get closer to the rotor. Maybe drive too long without using the brake pedal do the same effect.

Alternative idea for having two vehicles: get a motorcycle as a fun vehicle with your boring electric car. Especially if you love speed or track racing. People spend tremendous amounts of money on sports cars, but get beaten by people on relatively cheap motorcycles. A 2018 Suzuki Hayabusa that costs $14,500 new will blow away most supercars on the road (top speed of 194 mph). Even an old 1979 Suzuki GS1000CS can go 154 mph. Bikes in the 1980s like the Suzuki GSX-R1100, Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP and Kawasaki ZX-10 all pushed top speeds beyond the 165 mph mark.

People are going to get pissy and your going to take this as an insult but i'm going to say it anyway. Your most likely stopping to close to the car in front of you because proper stopping distance is at least a car length away. If you are hit from behind you are responsible for being far enough back that you do not hit the car in front of you. This is most likely what the car is set to so it gives off a warning after that point. Almost nobody does it but that's the proper way to drive.

There are three basic purposes to our vehicles: around town use, taking trips, and hauling. Today's electric vehicles only address the first. Therefore, as Mr. Explained said, electric vehicles are most practical when paired with a fueled vehicle. Once electric vehicles have the range of traveling a day (12 hours) without needing a charge they will be able to do trips too and will replace most fueled vehicles.

I'm proud of you, for acknowledging range anxiety. There's nothing wrong with recognizing an issue while you still have time to change it. I have a verbal/engineering logic thing for you. We purchase energy from an energy company. The energy is instantly deliverable upon payment. As for electrics though, as an urban vehicle, it is fulfilled as a steady use of energy, which is billable as power use.

The electric grid in the USA is over capacity in many areas of the country, we have blacks outs on very hot days in some areas of the south west. electric cars do put out emissions, it just in another location where the power plant is. Many areas of the country natural gas power plants a being built replacing coal power plants, but were still a long way from being able to power these electric cars on a large scale, by buying one of these plug in electric cars your just making more coal ash and nuclear waste for the next generation to deal with, also some power plants use crude oil to produce electric power, so they would have to burn more oil to power your electric vehicles, so this cancels out some the fuel savings of your electric car.

Seems as though Nissan could make a battery charger that could read the battery temp and delay charging until conditions were optimal. Come home, plug it up, and let the charger and car take care of the rest. Of course this still "leafs" the problem with speed charging a hot battery on a road trip. Well I do my road trips in my Audi A4 so I guess that solves that problem too. Lol. Great videos by the way.

A hybrid is a compromise for better gas mileage and less wear on the gasoline engine. My biggest problem with them is that if they have a sport button, the ones I have test drove barely changed after pushing the sport button so that merging and passing were scary. All electric is a great city only car if you have a dry place to charge it, and own or rent a second vehicle for long trips. The Smart car is good if you can rent a smaller parking space for it, and you do not mind paying extra for good crash test results, and premium fuel if it is an older one with a gasoline engine.

I have this exact model (2018 Nissan Leaf SV). A couple of comments about your video: I don't have the CarPlay issue you demonstrated with having to connect and reconnect. It connects to CarPlay immediately when I plug it in every time. The issue of letting the car cool down before charging is easy, and doesn't involve "plugging it in later". You just program the car to charge overnight (when many regions have low off peak charging rates), and then plug it in as soon as you get home. It won't start charging until late at night, and it will be fully charged every morning.
