Q: Electric cars in China

Found this article posted by Forbes about 6 months ago explaining electric cars market in China. http://www.forbes.com/sites/tychodefeijter/2016/05/18/10-new-electric-cars-from-china/#4cc861d21e2f To be honest I was quite surprised that there are so many companies manufacturing  them in China. Do you have any experience using a China-made electric car?

I hope the Chinese can set a trend and get the industry moving at long last.
this would be the only way the oil companies would have any competition .
if China went Electric more countries would feel better about getting serious about their electric car industry.

I my city....well not actually mine, bit the one in which i live, about half the taxis and most of the public buses are electric vehicles. The traveling experience is smoother but otherwise the same as the oil type.

There are lots of hybrid taxicabs now, not just in China. While I was back home in Canada, the taxi driver told me his cab was a hybrid and used VERY little gas. He said the companies were going to all switch to them because the savings were so great after one year they were able to double the number of cars. 

 

This is good news for the planet and for people that hate driving. I hate driving in China so I hope more and more of these hybrid cars show up.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
