Yep. If you spend the money to be prepared.
That's fine. 100 years ago no one could afford a car at all. Then they got cheaper.
Probably impossible without gas pumps and jerry cans.

Yep. 30 of the richest people in Manhattan being driven in their cars. Compare to today.

What aren't small solar panels for constant trickle charging of EVs more common?

(Unless they are common--to my knowledge, they're not.)

no women allowed & compulsory hats
cleaner air ?

it looks scientifically logical to expect around 10 meters sea level rise as a minimum before 100 years from now.
that will remove probably around 50% of all roads and 75% of all transit routes

it will also wipe out 50 to 75% of all primary-capital citys.
the number of highly productive production cits that sit on the side of rivers which make a vastly larger proportionate level of income for countrys will also be wiped out and probably not factored as important until after they have sustained un-recoverable damage.

wall st and global stock markets are designed to profit from the massive losses
so there is fiscal profitability in watching thw world burn by the current boom n bust economic systems.
thats a bit of a stumbling block for the elitists who don't want the average tax paying citizen to realise that fact while they continue to do what the elitists demand.

the cult-ist dogma is consistent
dont be a party pooper, stop being soo depressing
... all brain washed responses

The IPCC predicts a WORST CASE rise of 1.1 meters by 2100. That's far from 50% of all roads.

There are women in the picture, you just don't know what to look for. Hint: Women's hats were much larger than men's.

the flare on 2 hats side by side make the appearance of a poor image of a womans hat, but is not a womans hat, but instead 2 mens hats side by side.

there are no visible women in the picture.

Because it's not enough area to charge such a large battery in a reasonable time.

Like I said, you don't know where to look.

And if you can't tell the difference, you don't need to know.

personally, I am holding out for a long-range 4 wheel drive work truck that has the capacity to tow a minimum of 3 tons and can run accessories ... and I'm not alone. A large number of rural people that I know pretty much feel the same, especially around farms. Sometimes ya just gotta have the longer ranges (etc) because of the work involved and the lack of direct routes (or, like where I live, even roads).

Around here, fast is cool, and electric cars are nice for the townies, but work trucks abound as the primary vehicle of most people.

EDIT: I hear Toyota is looking into the electric 4WD market, but I only have a non-verifiable source for that and Toyota isn't talking to me.

I should have thought the towing would dead easy with an electric vehicle. The torque electric traction can deliver at low speed is phenomenal. And presumably range for a work truck is not hugely demanding. I feel sure it won't be long coming.
