Forcing Americans to buy electric vehicles has become a top priority for Democrats and their environmental extremist allies around the globe.
Many electric vehicle owners have quickly learned that the grass is not always greener on the other side though.
And Democrats are in hiding after this electric vehicle nightmare threatened to unravel their environmental extremist agenda.
Electric vehicles are proving to be a nightmare for millions of consumers
For many environmental extremists, electric vehicles are the ultimate solution to what they deem as a “climate crisis.”
However, as more Americans are making the switch to electric vehicles, it has become clear that the technology is still in its infancy, and not yet ready to completely replace gas-powered vehicles.
One issue that electric car manufacturers and Democrat politicians have been quiet about is the increased weight of electric vehicles.
That was illustrated last Thursday when the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Midwest Roadside Safety Facility released crash test results for the nearly 8,000-pound electric 2022 Rivian R1T.
“At 60 mph, the 7,000-plus-pound, 2022 Rivian R1T truck tore through the barrier with little reduction in speed,” Nebraska Today reported. “In a separate test conducted in September, a 2018 Tesla Model 3 sedan lifted the guardrail and passed below it, coming to rest behind the barrier.”
Cody Stolle, assistant director of the Midwest Roadside Safety Facility, addressed these concerns.
“There is some urgency to address this issue,” Stolle claimed. “As the percentage of EVs on the road increases, the proportion of run-off-road crashes involving EVs will increase, as well.”
Last January, Ann Carlson, the acting administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, echoed these concerns, saying she is “very concerned” regarding the “degree to which heavier vehicles contribute to greater fatality rates.”
“Bigger is safer if you don’t look at the communities surrounding you and you don’t look at the other vehicles on the road,” Carlson said. “It actually turns out to be a very complex interaction.”
Just like any truck or SUV already on the road, driving a heavier vehicle is often safer for the passengers, but can cause issues for others.
Electric Vehicles are rife with flaws, many of which are just now being discussed
The moment that electric vehicles became readily available, many environmental extremists jumped on the bandwagon, proposing elaborate schemes to force Americans out of gas-powered cars altogether.
Many of these policies were hurried through before experts knew about the long term impact of transitioning to electric vehicles.
But as is repeatedly proven, electric vehicles are simply not capable of fully replacing gas-powered vehicles any time soon.
