Citroën did it better
  • The Tesla definitely has big, "Oh god, what the fuck? Why?" energy.

    I remember in the 90s, upper-middle class people would buy the most god awful stuff because it was sold to them as expensive modern art. (Think Lydia's parents in Beetlejuice)

    The cybertruck has that same vibe. Its stupid and expensive and somehow that seems to be the appeal.

  • Wait, not like that
  • Oh, yeah, I looked at that. I can get a couple hundred watts of panels that will realistically generate about 300 watt hours of power on my balcony on the sunniest days, given that they won't be mounted at a very good angle. I can have it charge a battery pack that'll last a few years. Then I get about 90% efficiency if I'm lucky with the inverter. Even at $0.50/kWh, that's $0.15/day I'm saving or about $50/year if we just assume a cloudless year-round summer. That'll save me just enough money to buy a new battery when the first one gets old.

    Solar power will get there one day. Its great for many purposes but its still not practical for most apartment dwellers.

  • This is my reason for joining "Fuck Cars"
  • Don't be a pedantic dick. He was saying that the generation of the Tacoma that is pictured here as the small truck was highly capable. There were 4wd versions produced and with a lift they were some of the most versatile vehicles ever made. There's a reason why militaries added machine guns and artillery cannons to them sometimes. Don't act like you don't understand what they were trying to say.
