The ultimate goal of Joe Biden’s war on fossil fuels is to force Americans to switch to “green” technology. From cars to gas stoves, Biden wants you to go into debt trying to buy expensive electric vehicles and applications. Of course, this doesn’t really solve the problem. Electricity has to come from somewhere, right? And all the wind turbines in the world can’t meet the demand of millions of new EVs and other devices.
But, in many states, they are already banning gas cars in just a few years. This will force working families to find a way to buy far too expensive electric cars. One man decided to bite the bullet and buy one right now. He was one of the first people to buy the new electric Hummer. The truck costs over $110,000. The man shot a video to see how long this behemoth takes to charge.
This is the bad news.
A man discovered that his brand new GMC Hummer EV would take five days to fully charge when using a basic home charging setup.
“This is a brand new hummer and it’s got the largest battery you can buy,” he announces. “250-kilowatt hours of battery in this truck.”
He continues, “Now it’s Sunday morning, let’s see how long it takes to charge it just using the truck’s charger and plugging it into a standard wall outlet.”
After plugging in the vehicle, he checks on the dashboard of the car for the estimated time it will take to fully charge.
“Time to complete charge: Friday at 8:30 am and range increase is one mile per hour,” he said, making a total charge time of five days. [Source: The Post Millennial]
That’s right, five days. It will take the man five days to charge his new EV, using a basic home charging setup. He went on to say that if he bought a “level two” charger it would take less time, but he didn’t reveal shorter the time would be.
So, for someone buying an EV, they’d have to spend more money installing a level two charger or similar equipment, just to make sure they can drive the dang thing. Now, not all EVs have a battery as large as the new Hummer.
But this painfully illustrates just how impractical they are for most Americans. The average electric car costs 50% more (or higher) than a gas car. You can’t buy a used one, because the batteries die over time and are useless. On top of buying a car that costs $70,000 or more, you have to spend thousands on equipment to charge it.
All for a car that you can take on cross-country trips, since the range is pathetically lower than the average gas car. And considering that Biden is still keeping American energy locked down, you can expect a high electric bill, just for the pleasure.
Biden’s “solution” to climate change will cost Americans a fortune. That is, if most can even afford it. Those who can’t buy an outrageously expensive EV, what are they supposed to do? Ride a bus all their life? Does Biden even care?
Of course not.
