The usual boomer questions:


How far does it go on a charge? Oh my only 300 miles? I drive 50,000 miles between fill ups and don't stop between them.

How long does it take to charge? Doesn't it take hours to go a hundred miles? well shit 10-15 minutes aint bad. I take longer to piss anymore.

There aren't any charging stations near me. Yes i have electricity at my house. Oh you fill up at home and it doesn't matter if there are stations near my house.

You know it's worse for the environment than a gas car right? Oh they are recycling batteries at 95% already? Still using coal. thats dirty. why bother?

Those charging stations all use a diesel generator anyways. The grid can't handle the demand.

They don't work in the cold and it gets cold here. What do you mean people in canada and norway use them? It's too cold up there for ev's. I know this because I believe it.

I don't like technology things. I need buttons and a manual transmission.

nah, auto cant account for the sun beating on a side of your face for 4 hours but the car is where it should be

have to manually adjust to not be annoyed by that shit enough to just not bother with it. it annoys me in every car that has it and im sure ill hate it in whatever new car i end up with

my issue with electrics has nothing to do with the charging thing like the rest of the boomers, it has to do with the fact that i cant stand that all the controls are on a touchscreen

i want buttons and knobs
If you want a knob why don't you look in the mirror :bert:

I also prefer some of the controls to be buttons/knobs, but my wife's Model 3 was easier to acclimate to than I thought :dunno:

Alot more to add to that. Or are these just for boomer type related?

radio controls are only part of it, the ac system is the larger one that sucks on the the screen IMO
i'm happy with what volvo did with the infotainment where they put everything on the screen except pause/play and volume knob, and defrost/rear defrost etc. on one small line of buttons
