Mitsubishi i MiEV in AUS in 2009

Clearly Misubishi should have got the 70 Mill. A total failure from the goverment. I assume there will be a huge demand for this MIEV. A goverment rebate would have done the rest. Take off. Waiting, waiting .. I already mentioned the goverment rebate on this board some time ago. What is AEVA doing t...

Petrol tax reductions

First time that Greenpeace mentioned the EV. So I send them an email with AEVA web link. The Americans ( democrats) complain to the WTO about Opec not pumping enough oil. When does the world complain about the Americans using 30 % of the world oil for themselves?? Obviously we cannot expect the demo...

Petrol tax reductions

The goverment would be a great help and could help. The tax on fuel should subsidies alternatives like EV and batteries, but the tax was also meant to build more roads and to repair them. And nowadays with climate change the tax should be used to clean up the air. The goverment was fast with the cig...

What a beaut affordable roadster EV from China!

Very interesting. I have to make a trip to china soon to find out what is actually happening there in this respect. Apparently they have millions of electric bycyle and scooters on the road. That means they are ahead of everybody else in this respect. Of course to build a roadworthy vehicle is a dif...

What a beaut affordable roadster EV from China!

Of course that is what is happening. And Rudd wants to sell us
the camry hybrid. The problem is of course to get this car licence
for Australian roads. And we need somebody to test drive it first.
Then I am in.

ngamoko, our goverment just announced means testing for solar panels. One of the main reasons was that is was unsustainable to pay 8000 $ for each solar investment. So most of Australia solar buisness is damaged. The Labor goverment is obviously not able to run the show. They could have reduced the ...

Here is the link for advanced batteries. Experts like Zeva should
ask for a quote and if you can give us a feed back here would be helpfull. Perhaps we get an alternative to Thundersky. I own a few shares in this company already.
