Gas stations don’t even move and a 460 can’t pass them... seems kinda slow to me.
An electric car can pass all the gas stations... that’s a lot of passing. They must be fast.
On the other hand the new electric cars come with a feature to help you figure out if you can make it where you are going and how far you have walk once the battery dies.

Isnt it funny....spend the last few decades trying to make everything more convienent, more mobile, less tethered, with things like smart phones, wireless internet, microwave meals, etc etc....and now people are pushing to make probably the most conveniant freedom device less so by electrifying it and making you more less tethered to charging stations and long recharge times.

With your electric car, instead of a spare tire, they give you a Segway to keep in the trunk.....

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Everybody would forget to keep the Segway charged. Just like never checking air pressure in spare tires.

Toyota puts TPMS sensors in the spare too.

Not a gas station.
HAHA, no kidding, they'll pass everything except gas stations for sure. I think mine would get 14mpg highway on a good day unloaded, but throw a trailer on it and it would do about 8-10mpg. That old 460 and C6 automatic just keeps on going. Has a horrible exhaust leak due to a couple of broken manifold bolts but it just keeps on going.
