Lady down the road just got a Prius. She is getting 150 mpg. Do not know how much electricity she is using. Should have that report later this year. Nearly all our electricity is hydro generated. Or costs are a bit less too. We have lots of 2 and 3 wheeled bicycles and tricycles on the Island. There is even a free charging station at the top of the Island, but often a big pick up will park in that spot. It really upsets the E users. The big problem with most powered things is weight. The crash test standards do not help with reducing weight. Next is rolling resistance, and over about 50, wind drag. There is some good video of the Ebikes going around the IOM. Isle of Man. They race every year in June. A local guy builds bicycles and tricycles. He built the worlds fastest bicycle that went 82 mph. Record since broken, just. Another guy installed batteries and motor in a motorcycle, after ditching the gas motor. Bright kid.
And our loonie left government has said all vehicles sold after 2040 must be zero emissions. Forgot the name of the company near here that has been working on hydrogen power forever.
