All this discussion about the Tesla semis and how they'll get charged is like worrying about what you're going to do with all those droppings from those flying pigs.

By the time the semis actually exist, the infrastructure may be in place. A lot can happen in 5 years.


Hey, we just need to be in sync with the naysayers and those who see problem for every solution.

And gives us RVers dreaming of EV pick up to tow our rig something else to worry about other than the money.

LOL, makes sense so they can sell burgers too when EV owners come charging.

But I bet they'll not install quick superchargers.

I wonder if the electricity will flush out the innards of your batteries like the food flushes out your innards?

DC fast chargers are handy but they can also be a pain. If you are looking to have a nice leisurely lunch almost always you’ll get an email from your car saying it’s full before you finish lunch. Good manners says you move your car right away for the next person so this can kinda interrupt things. Not to mention some fast chargers charge idle fees if hooked up and not charging. Unless we are road tripping we tend to use level 2 chargers when shopping or eating.

If a fast charge would finish before I completed a meal at MDs I would not bother to plug in.
As it relates to this thread the vehicles would (hopefully) have 100+ kWh battery.

Lol. Yah good point.

The only place I have seen a fast charger at a McDonald’s was when it was co-located at a group of level 2’s. (On edit, it was a little strip mall). The fast charger would be handy for out of towners picking up a quick meal.

I would like to see more public level 2 stations in our area for the apartment dwellers etc. Shopping areas, Starbucks, restaurants etc. They are coming but slowly.

When I was working for Unilever, we have such products, while loss leaders, are called traffic builders (bringing in customers).

This is just a new twist to the concept, lol.

In Amsterdam, there are McD's are on the first floor of the pleasure house in the red light district.

So why not? But still my question, is whether that's good with fries.
