    How are we allowing people to import these poorly made Chinese cars? They are technically ATV/Toys not designed to be used for more than a year or two. Ignoring the fact they cost less than a nice stove or refrigerator (http://bit.ly/2mDSRKy or http://bit.ly/2yRDr6X )
    The batteries are not quality controlled and after the hover-board problems a few years ago would you feel safe strapping yourself to a 100lb battery from China?
    No one has mentioned the ‘green’ disposal of the batteries. Are they being burned or just dumped at the airport? Try puncturing a cellphone battery and it will explode, doing this with cutter at the dump? There should be recycling policies for the influx of cars with this new technology. We have gas hybrids, diesel hybrids, and EVs which all have batteries which will die in 4-5yrs. Why is there no one talking/reporting about sustainability of these vehicles? They are only ‘environmentally friendly’ if the processes in which they are made/disposed are as well.

    There really needs to be a study/report/laws done on this before it gets out of hand. It’s a small island and I’m all for the environment and new technology. It just needs to be monitored properly and legislated correctly with all aspects. Sadly, this is where Bermuda always falls short.

    Wait till winter kicks in with gales and salt spray in the air, and we’ll see you long those electric cars last.

      Yeah, like people stop riding bikes when winter kicks in with gales and salt spray in the air………..SMH

    • DinosaurVehicles says:

      Um, um, yeah, combustion engines are very good against gales and salt spray. Much better than electric engines.
