You can get an EV for half that figure...
And less than half the car I would want.
However the range thing is quickly becoming a non starter.
From a Mother Earth test on range:
""A world record has been set for range traveled at highway speeds in an electric car on a single charge.
IT Asset Partners (ITAP) conducted a range test of four vehicles, including three commercial cars-- The Tesla Model S P90D, the Chevy Bolt, the Nissan Leaf. The fourth vehicle in the test is known as the Phoenix.
This BMW was slated for the scrap-heap until ITAP reclaimed it and upgraded the car with 88% recycled materials including the controller and battery. Altogether the vehicle and it's improvements cost ITAP less than $13,000.
For the test each vehicle was required to drive as far as possible along a 362 mile round trip route in California, from Chatsworth to San Luis Obispo.
The Nissan Leaf ran out of juice first after 81 miles. The Tesla faltered after 238.2 miles. The farthest reaching of the commercially available cars was the Chevy Bolt, which traveled 271.5 miles before dying. The big surprise was the Phoenix which traveled an astonishing 340.3 miles before stopping because of a blown fuse. The vehicle still retained 32% battery power so that ITAP estimates it could have traveled 400 miles on a single charge.
The Phoenix was a powerful testament to the potential of sustainability in future car designs.
If a car destined for the junkyard can be upgraded with recycled materials to outperform the newest technology, there no telling what can be accomplished.""
Now they don't say what size BMW Was used and many of want something of a certain substantial size but it does show what is possible.
To achieve anything, you must be prepared to dabble on the boundary of disaster.”
