Road emissions are back up close to pre-pandemic level at 5.86 GtCO2 (6.02 in 2019) Aug 1 2022, 4.6% adoption rate for EVs in the US -Axio. Whats the point? The point is if people are going to do anything about climate change or reduce oil consumption, cut pollution or any green policy that will help the environment and human health we need to start moving in the right direction. Below is a tool from Statista to provide some information. Daily demand for crude oil worldwide from 2006 to 2020, with a forecast until 2026* According to the data from Statista in 2017 production was at 97.9 bpd and a projection for 2022 at close to 100 bpd. If you are wondering why this is important to cleaning up the environmental practices of ourselves, the production values correspond directly to the Co2 emission that are clogging up the air of this planet we are living on. Road Transportation emissions are noted in blue below, the measurement is in GtCO2 which is one billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Some engineering and design decisions didn't meet expectations at Revzilla. One issue is a 4Kw battery isn't very much power, which will effect range AND speed. My current battery system has 10.5Kw and can do 1.5 c discharge safely so that is close to 15Kw of available power. But hey the Revzilla gang liked the way the brakes work!
