An Explanation Into My Opinion on EVs

This isn't a rant I promise...

Some of you agree with me, some of you don't, and some of you get really angry at me for my extremist beliefs. I believe everyone is entitled to their opinion even if I disagree with it, but there is reasoning behind why I hate EVs. I have been a car enthusiast all of my life, like many of you, and my passion will always be cars, that is why I plan to open up my own shop one day and build custom cars for people all over the world. That dream will not be able to come true if the world is forced to go electric, that is why I hate electric cars, because they threaten my dream. Now I hope that many of you can understand this, because many of you have dreams of your own. Some of you like electric cars and I totally respect that, most of you have been extremely nice people to talk too and be friends with on here and I hope that their is no bad blood between us. Now that synthetics are a thing I can put less hate towards EVs anyways, since the script has just been flipped and EVs will soon be a thing of the past. So the other reasons I hate EVs come down to this they don't have the soul of an ICE car, they have no customization ability, they are extremely expensive, they threaten about 4 million jobs in the US alone, they are usually not very good looking, and I don't like a lot of the people who buy them. But like I said I respect your opinions too seeing as how you have put up with my militant take on cars over the past 6 months or so. So if you wish to talk to me about this there is the comment section.

  • You know I like EVs and I doubt that somebody will change that but I want to say I can completely see where you are coming from and I am also excited about synthetics. My personal take on it is that just like now there will be lots of different fuel sources for different people. I really hope you can achieve your dream and I am looking forward to seeing more amazing projects from you. Thanks for explaining, I can understand where you are coming from much more now and I still respect your opinion, as always.

  • Fair enough, I like that you have taken the time to explain and I do agree with many points. I feel governments will be hard pressed to force people to drive EVs, as then there will be serious freedom of choice issues. For me it is modern cars in general I find pretty soulless and I don't like screens in cars and the phasing out of the Manual gearbox: The Driver should be able to have absolute control if they want it, and it promotes more considered driving if you ask me. As for me, well as long as I can still drive a 1970s/80s/90s car daily and preserve classics in the future I'm happy. Cheers for adding to the conversation!

    • You can if you drive them! EVs have a purpose, they are for those who want transport and nothing else. All those who want to be different will drive ICE, will be even more of a subculture than already. FIVA is good at lobbying in the interests of...

  • I feel the same. We shouldn't force change like this. Many people don't have the ability to pay $60,000 for a new car and if we force this change will we even be ready to sustain it?????

  • True, EVs are expensive and don’t work very well, but we can all live with them, if they become cheaper

    • As a strong electric car advocate, all the butt-hurt angry people are 100% Tesla dick riders.
