    I guess your screwed if you live in Vegas and south lots off heat and in winter time in Canada Manitoba and Saskatchewan your screwed for cold . If you want to travel don’t go on long trips I guess I’m better off in a golf cart In the cities and gas vehicles if traveling . Scrap the electric cars if in an accident if battery damage your car is worthless ill pay the extra for gas.

    Totally useless. Too cold, too hot, what the hell.

  6. KorAllRBare on April 16, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    I am finding it hard to comprehend that this video is already way out of date, it’s amazing how the all electric automotive Technology is evolving so fast,
    It’s refreshing that the evolution is evolving umpteen times faster than the fossil fuel technology could ever have evolved, Can you imagine where we
    would be technologically today had the electric car been developed rather than the archaic fossil fuel guzzlers? Just research in battery technology
    alone would have us with phones or for that matter all battery operated devices charged instantly, but wait! the devices wont need a recharge for at
    least a month!. And yeah cars may not even have to stop for a charge today had battery research and development got the attention way back in the early
    1900’s as it is getting now..

  7. thismof0 on April 16, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    i just find it funny how the people will jump to an electric car but when they introduced turbo cars only few did the switch to turbo but most were scared and now they jumping to electric cars when i hear batteries i hear batteries that won’t hold charge

  8. wow7 on April 16, 2022 at 3:07 pm

    In the year 2032, owning a car makes as much sense as owning the elevator in a high rise.

  9. Jason Pyles on April 16, 2022 at 3:08 pm

    Well im not sold on EV’s natural desasters flooding & long power outsges is the down fall for this machine in the country areas not make it but im sure it will be forced on everyone

  10. Thim on April 16, 2022 at 3:09 pm

    I’m paying 2000.00 a month in fuel. I pull 28000 pounds with my dually diesel. Just curious if electric would be an option. I would only be able to charge for 10 hours before I went out for about 100 miles. I’m not sure there would be any savings?

  11. RAY GERVATO / X-RAY IMIJ on April 16, 2022 at 3:09 pm

    Great video but I want to share my
    initial and only EV experience thus
    far. Has anyone had a similar story
    as this: I loved gliding quietly outta
    my garage like a spaceship. And it
    was cool -the prospects of a lower
    annual bill for gasoline. But after a
    week of driving a hybrid, I began to
    feel dizzy, similar to sitting in front
    of a laptop for many hours, & then,
    noticing a burning dizzying, flushy
    feeling -from the electro-magnetic
    exposure to the lithium battery. I’m
    assuming from the Ev car batteries
    under the back seat, I had a similar
    experience. Constantly! In fact, it’d
    made me feel like my car was just
    a microwave on wheels, and I was
    the bacon! To think that I would be
    stuck for 3 yrs. in the lease had me
    freaked out even more. But I ended
    up taking it back after 10 days -and
    without mentioning this "sensitivity
    issue" I just said the truth about the
    car having "no pep" and I wanted to
    "trade up"…so I wound up with a car
    that was gas combustion only, AND
    my dizzying feeling went right away.

    So I wonder IF anyone can relate to
    my experience and "sensitivity" to a
    vehicle with a lithium battery seated
    below and just behind the front seat.
    It was like night and day w/without!!

    How protected is the Battery from salt and sand. Update NY here. Our vehicles take a beating from salt and sand they put the the roads every winter. I’d hate to see how fast that would destroy the battery. The price to replace the battery is got to be crazy expensive

  13. Mihai Visovan on April 16, 2022 at 3:12 pm

    No brainer…almost 20k to replace a battery pack…you buy any v8 you will not gonna spend 20k in gas over 10 years… in 2min you have your tank full!

  14. Joel pierce on April 16, 2022 at 3:14 pm

    Just wondering what happens when you have to drive through fairly deep water?

  15. Bee Dee on April 16, 2022 at 3:15 pm

    There great Electric the way to go by Scotty your done so you cant make 200 grand on You Tube any more so get it while you can Republican crook

  16. Pierre-Rose on April 16, 2022 at 3:16 pm

    Truth is they are too expensive !

  17. Nutty Nutts on April 16, 2022 at 3:17 pm

    a windmill should be on front

  18. A Dingman on April 16, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    I can hardly wait till all these electric vehicles need a battery pack replacement. My buddy got an estimate from the local Tesla dealer to change his Tesla Model S battery pack and it was $27K CDN. LMFAO!!!!!!!!

  19. Martyn on April 16, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    Very interesting video, my sister has a hybrid, thinking of changing to EV

  20. Mikercflyer on April 16, 2022 at 3:21 pm

    At 83 I don’t have to consider of even buying one I’ll probably won’t live long enough to see the price coming down were I can afford one. 😂😂

  21. Big Rich on April 16, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    Well done Scotty.
    I prefer the ability to go long distances towing good amounts of weight. Someone said their electric f150 would smoke my 2007 Tundra even if it was supercharged ( it’s not it’s got headers and exhaust). I said I’ll take that race. I set the terms. 1300 miles towing a trailer…No response back yet.
    We don’t have the charging infrastructure for a large population of e.v.’s either. It also means your money is mainly going to China who has capitalized on mining in Africa and other places abroad for the materials to make the magnets and the batteries. I think a 1950’s straight 6 pickup truck is still the most earth friendly vehicle every built. We are getting a 2022 Tundra for my wife. My truck has almost 100k and it’s been lifted its whole life and had used one idler pulley and belt and a ball joint. The ball joint really could cause problems but I have lots of off road and I had my floor jack and ratchet straps with me when it happened. I was 30 minutes and rolling again. I have 4:11’s so even at 6k pounds with 35" tires and a long bed she still outruns most newer lifted trucks. About 14.5 in the quarter mile. My wife’s brand new tundra with regular tires is supposed to be 14.5 as well? Lol. Kind of sad but will be perfect for her with new rear suspension and the taller gears will help us on trips towing a 20′ aluminum boat.
    Watched you tons of times and have shared you with so many people.
    Have a great Easter weekend! 🐇

  22. Gordon Fleming. on April 16, 2022 at 3:24 pm

    Good video, Scotty. Direct and to the point. Easy to understand your comments.

  23. Doug King on April 16, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    how about induction coils in roadways especially at stop lights to charge electric cars (like wireless cell phones) when cars drive down road and sit at red lights.

  24. Valerie Jensen on April 16, 2022 at 3:26 pm

    Hi Scotty
    We soo enjoy your knowledge about ALL vehicles!!

    Unibody will die in future?

  26. joe dirt on April 16, 2022 at 3:28 pm

    I’ll buy a oxe and cart before I will now down too this woke foolishness. In the areas of the world where it’s -15°c 8months out of the year and roads that are unpaved ( most of Canada ) this idea as good as it sounds will not likely work unfortunately. What it will succeed in doing is causing even more hardships on a Country’s population.

  27. Cindy Metcalf on April 16, 2022 at 3:30 pm

    And you don’t think electricity will go up when demand goes up? It most certainly will. Well trade one problem for another. In addition if you don’t comply as a citizen, your car can be disabled remotely via satellite. Talk about giving up your autonomy. In addition the battery is created with cobalt which is mined by children in unsafe conditions in Africa. Kids are injured and killed every year mining. 70 percent of the cobalt comes from the congo.

  28. Dale Weller on April 16, 2022 at 3:31 pm

    I’m going to drive from GR Michigan to Tampa Florida 1400 miles, how many times will I have to charge and how long per change?

  29. Clifton Davis on April 16, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    Great and inspiring information thank you I like the way you think

  30. Mari Schwab on April 16, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    I live in 🇨🇦 how the hell does true-dope expect these cars to even work in the middle of winter, when the temp can get as low as -20. Wht if u don’t have a garage to put it in?? Meanwhile he’s driving a SUV gas powered vehicle!!

  31. edwin morales on April 16, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    I love my EV. And you are absolutely correct on this issue.

  32. Neru Ashikabi on April 16, 2022 at 3:33 pm

    yup…. I’ll stick with my classic car…forget these new n newer cars

  33. Troy31 on April 16, 2022 at 3:37 pm

    Left out the biggest maintenance cost on EVs and why there will never be 20 year old evs driving around. The lifetime maintenance cost is low on evs because 99% of owners trade them in before they need batteries.

  34. Charlsie Pecoraro on April 16, 2022 at 3:38 pm

    Great information.

  35. Don Blunkall on April 16, 2022 at 3:38 pm

    Horse n buggy

  36. John Bayers on April 16, 2022 at 3:39 pm

    Fossil fuels are used in so many areas concerning the production of electric vehicles…I fail to see how this will not dig our hole deeper!

  37. See Nomore on April 16, 2022 at 3:40 pm

    …Just Loaded up on Solo Stock … "Something Wonderful is Going to Happen!"

  38. yesmanfetrue on April 16, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    With all this technology why isn’t it self charging? I smell a scam.

  39. kevin bromley on April 16, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    I would love to afford an EV

  40. Jim B on April 16, 2022 at 3:47 pm

    I have a question for you dip wipe auto engineers. How is it that an alternator can charge a battery but you cannot find a way for electric cars to recharge themselves. What is it? Something you already have but will wait a few years for it to come out. Then you can charge another 5 grand on a 50k car that is worth only 20k. Screw all others huh?

  41. MatteMike2345 on April 16, 2022 at 3:48 pm

    When anyone states: This is the truth! I think…. yeah…. right.

  42. Martin Pittaway on April 16, 2022 at 3:49 pm

    Why do people buy electric cars? Because they think are saving the planet. Wrong! Where is the electricity coming from? 90% of the worlds electricity is still generated by using mineral fuels. Wind turbines cost more to run than mineral power stations. Hyrdo electric is the most economic and least cost of maintenance but the hydro people aren’t paying out big sums to politicians back pockets.

  43. David Wrobel on April 16, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Once the changing cycles are used up, replacement cost will cost more then what the car was when it as news.

  44. David Aziz on April 16, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Beaing a mechanic for the past 12 years i am looking foward to buy an electric car… but, let see what future brings us?

  45. Green Prospecting on April 16, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    Goes to show the rich get richer & the poor get poorer ….

  46. See Hear Now on April 16, 2022 at 3:53 pm

    I’m curious about the "charging station fire videos"? like …. how often do these things happen and what causes them?? My first thought is that the "fire" videos might be made by the gas companies? The videos ARE horrifying 😨

  47. DrBiggusVergeetos on April 16, 2022 at 3:55 pm

    its all fun and games untill you get electrical problems
    and i think we all had them xD

  48. moonobserver Gilles on April 16, 2022 at 3:55 pm

    Then why not have a motor that works on water simple rain water? i suppose the abusers that exploit humanity would not make enough money since rain can fall from the clouds for free? Tesla met the challenge with JP MORGAN bankster. what has changed today? the oil lords still abuse with the gas prices? blame it on what you want there is always the excuses they use .inflation bla bla bla. In the end follow the money you will find the one or ones who enrichen themselves big time? just saying

  49. Barlow Smith on April 16, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    I live in a cold climate. turn on the heat in an electric car and good by to how far you think you can go – very draining on the battery nobody ever tells you that

  50. Dan Lo Fat on April 16, 2022 at 3:59 pm

    It’s a misnomer about 20% 80% rule battery controls on the cell phones and cars for the last 12 years prevent undercharging and overcharging it’s automatic when your battery reads 100% hard it’s actually only 85% charge when your battery reads 20%. It probably has about 25 to 30% left in it
