G’day readers. I hope that you are all having a fantastic day.
I have prepared this short explanation of why it is that people don’t want to drive electric cars, but instead cars powered by conventional over-powered combustion engines.
I will begin by introducing two cars, one is powered by a combustion engine and one by an electric motor. I am sure you can guess which is which using the pictures below.
I am sure that I do not need to tell you this, but the one on the left is the Nissan LEAF, an all electric car and the one on he right is the Holden HSV E3 Senator, powered by a very large combustion engine.
Now, without saying more, I believe that I have illustrated the real reason for people not driving electric cars. This is of course that ELECTRIC CARS ARE UGLY AND GUTLESS!
For all environmentalists concerned with dangerous carbon emissions, the appearance of electric cars is surely the primary limiting factor in their widespread adoption and the ultimate overturn of fossil-fuel-powered cars.
Down to the specs:

Holden HSV E3 Senator specs from:
From the table above it quickly becomes apparent that the Nissan LEAF and all similar electric cars seem to belong to the stereotype, ugly and gutless. Whereas the world’s understanding of sexy and powerful is a huge car with an oversized engine, a prime example of this is the Holden HSV E3 Senator.
In summary, I hope that one day somebody will be able to develop and build attractive and powerful all-electric cars. A company of interest to me in this field is Tesla Motors. Have a look at their cars by visiting the link below:
The 2013 Model S is of particular interest to me. What do you think?
Who knows, perhaps Ford will make an all-electric version of their new 2012 Evos Hybrid Concept (pictured below).
Please do leave a comment, vote on the poll below and let us all know what you think or what you have found regarding attractive electric cars. Surely companies similar to Tesla Motors exist and we would all love to hear about them.
