    Re: ELV infrastructure...

    Yeah - I agree. This is the future. 


    Re: ELV infrastructure...

    Charging pads for parking? Sure. Charging roads or undergound pads? Never going to happen and completely unfeasible. Charging while driving is quickly made irrelevant by increases in range and more normal infrastructure. If it takes longer for the normal infrastructure to reach apartment building and cities, so be it. There are more than enough car owners with homes to target and support the market. We don't really need to worry about charging in dense urban areas where even simply having a parking spot is a problem. Ride sharing will end congestion in these areas.

    BTW, we don't even bother to put current electric infrastructure in the ground due to the sheer cost of it. Telephone poles will exist for a very, very, very long time.

    They can't even pave road correctly in the USA... Charging roads? 100 years from now, maybe...

    Smiley I do not think that the whole US (or any other country for that matter) would be paved with "charging pads" but only certain locations, like for example supermarket parking lots, condo building parking lots, private garages, streets with lots of buildings next to each other and many along the street parking spaces, etc. This would already be a huge step forward in my opinion.

    Why put pads in the ground when they could just install them on top of the ground? One is serviceable, the other is not. It would cost an insane amount of money to do this.

    Because it would be an elegant and non-intrusive method, helping to promote ELV tech? You are assuming that it is expensive (and it definitely would be right now) but this could be standard tech in a few years if everything works out as planned.
