London to Edinburgh by electric car: it was quicker by stagecoach - The Telegraph
Ironic that this guy views the BBC stunt as pro-EV.
I don't care.
Thought you guys might appreciate this:
We saw a dealer and couldn't resist :biggrin:
These guys are just as bad as BBC.
Yeah the Register used to be a good read, now they are just obnoxious (I thought that before this story, by the way).
I responded. Let's see if they have the bottle to publish my comment uncut:
I think the Registers' M.O. is to take any story, find the champion then vilify them. It's just what they do "Bite the hand that feeds". I used to read it years ago when it was new and fun but these days it's a bit passé.
Good circulation though; should bring the whole story to a lot of new people; they'll draw their own conclusions and, as I suspect many are techies they'll get the right end of the stick.
However, if the BBC were to do the trip by stagecoach, they would use a prototype stagecoach that uses miniature ponies and arrive a week after they left to show that ICE cars are also superior to stagecoach.
Check this out and you'll probably get a good idea of the type we are dealing with here: http://lewispage.blogspot.com/
If we all drove EVs, his pals would have no excuse to go hunting for WMDs...
Nice reply David...a solid (verbal) drubbing for Mr. Page!...
Well they eventually published.
I liked this one, a few posts down
Though they seem to miss the point, I'm surprised the Register article is so detailed. Even if they got a lot of those details wrong, it seems like they at least read this forum.
I've wondered why everyone assumed David was driving a Roadster Sport. It's RHD and a 2.5, but not Sport. Even Nikki assumed it was a Sport.
I didn't (no sport badge on the side), but I could see why some would:
#1: It has the higher end wheels often associated with the sport.
#2: Many of the store demo models seem to be Sports as it would make sense to offer the slightly quicker model when trying to impress potential customers on test drives.
I bet if you counted all the Roadsters with the big Tesla banner along the side, a high percentage would be Sports.
I wonder how much quicker (t-(X*.02secs)) he would have gotten to Scotland with a Sport ;^}
Anyways, sport or non-sport isn't really important to any of this.
Funny. If you were visiting a relative in a far away town I bet you would have better luck asking "Can I plug my car into a spare outlet while I visit?" compared to "Can I have 8 gallons of Petrol?"
