Wait until a Mack Truck rear end your wifey Hybrid then come talk .

The end result is sooo different from when the said truck hits a gas, cng or diesel vehicle?


A gas or diesel go be flying down the H'way .

Away from the Mack Truck a.k.a. Gravel Truck

CNG and Hybrid ?

In bumper traffic saving gas and the environment .

France to ban sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040

https://www.theguardian.com/business/20 ... cron-volvo

France will end sales of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040 as part of a plan to meet its targets under the Paris climate accord, Emmanuel Macron’s government has announced.

The announcement comes a day after Volvo said it would only make fully electric or hybrid cars from 2019 onwards, a decision hailed as the beginning of the end for the internal combustion engine’s dominance of motor transport after more than a century.

Nicolas Hulot, the country’s new ecology minister, said: “We are announcing an end to the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2040.” Hulot added that the move was a “veritable revolution”.

Over 193 countries have signed on to the Paris agreement since 2015.

From your response it is clear to everyone on this thread that you have never seen someone working on a car or have never worked on a car yourself.

He is probably the kind of guy that thinks you need a specialized high tech garage to change oil
Mechanics probably make a lot on him

Ok :D Just do not like Hybrids . I like full throttle gasoline :D

You still beating up because you didn't have money to buy the Ford 3.2 ?

And the Bank say the only way you getting a loan is with a fully automatic Glock.

BTW did someone steal your access code again ? Or hack your tuner account ?

Again wet foot Grenadian ?

RedVEVO isn't a troll, he genuinely thinks he knows everything, look at his other posts, wrong and strong 99% of the time.

Agreed .. But they have no power .

Test drove a Hybrid X-trail a few months ago.

It was sluggish . No power .

You serious Morpy man ?

You comparing changing a hybrid battery to installation of a deck ?

You seriously trolling to the max dude ! To gain what ?

To Encourage sales of the Hybrids ? You trolling for Massy. Paid Blogger.

Some people will NEVER buy a Hybrid.

Many people like gasoline power .

Many people like diesel power.

ALL like a warranty like 3 - 4 - 5 years NOT 30 days .

Simply saying the amount of panels and bolts that needs to be removed to change a deck that's in plain view, of course you'll have to remove a lot of stuff to replace a battery pack that is under a seat or something...

In some cars you have to scrap down a hell of a lot before you can even take out the deck.
Batteries are plug and play too. Decks still have to be wired :|
This seems easier.

How's the cell signal under the bridge RedVEVO?

The same way you properly dispose of a lead acid battery, there are companies that handle this, same way it have scrap men who buy old engines and transmissions.

Battery packs that need to change, still have a majority of the cells being good, they can be harvested and reused by DIYers
