I don't understand the dislike some have for electric cars. My next car will probably be a BEV. Lithium batteries have their weaknesses - mass, cost, and environmental impacts...
Other than that^^^

this.........

Let me know when the automakers come out with a battery that won't burn my house down and EV's have a solar panel in the sunroof with a charging system / generator aboard that perpetually charges the battery while I drive it. Until then thry can shove it.

A new BEV for Aussies to consider:
While we’re still awaiting the return of the official MOKE to Australian shores (it’s looking grim) Citroen has some good news for us by way of this micro-mobility recreational vehicle they call the AMI Buggy. It might be a concept in its current state, but the vehicle is based on a real operational EV in the brand’s lineup......We absolutely love everything about the My Ami Buggy Concept and can’t think of a better mode of transport to the beach on the weekend. Sporting a 5.5 kWh battery with 43 miles of range and a top speed of just 28 mph it’s not great for distance transportation, but the smiles per mile will make up the difference.
The Citroen is about as close to a modern Mini Moke as we’re ever going to get, and if the current Citroen Ami price of £6,000 ($8,000 USD) after tax in Britain is anything to go off, it’ll be a cheap runaround for adventuring Aussies.

I actually really like this! Reminds me of my childhood zipping from cove to cove in a Mini Moke on Magnetic Island.

They do seem to hold a lot of stuff.

That ship has finally sunk…

“The weather was pretty rough out there,” Pat Adamson, a spokesperson for MOL Ship Management, a unit of Mitsui OSK Lines, said by phone. “And then she sank, which was a surprise.”

VW Group had VW, Porsche, Audi, Bentley and Lamborghini-branded models on the vessel, which was on its way to Rhode Island from Germany’s Emden port when the fire broke out on Feb. 16.“

Wow - 438 million dollar loss in cargo plus the cost of the vessel.

Can't wait not to have one of those EV pieces of shit in my garage.
Right. Not my bag either. I am saddened by the poor Bentley motor cars though.

So sad.
