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.“
