    Well I just wish they would "Signal their Virtue" with their own money and not that of the ever suffering taxpayer.

    Yep it is on Stewart Island, (not that Raki place) as they don't have any connection to the national grid. The whole island is powered by diesel.

    Exactly, so why would any Luminary, of any Persuasion, station an EV there?

    Tesla Model S Plaid erupts in flames and briefly traps owner after electronic doors fail, attorneys say:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/techn...la-plaid-fire/

    Capable of: "390-mile range and more than 1,000 horsepower, propelling the car to speeds up to 200 mph and logging 0-to-60-mph times of below 2 seconds"
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    you think that is funny. These Departments are run by our single source of truth Government which expect us to believe every thing they say even though they change their minds every other day, cannot explain what they are doing when questioned and get caught out telling lies. The funny part is half the country still believe the are wonderful.

    These EV vehicles put a whole new meaning on “Just Driving a Bomb”.
    And a vehicle with a tank full of highly flammable petroleum has never caught fire or exploded and killed anyone - right?

    Yes they have but it is a very very rare occurance and never just happens spontaniously. Try comparing the numbers of EV fires againt Fossil vehicles cars on a percentage basis!
