Woo-Hoo! $14,000 for an Electric Car Battery

Electric car buyer learns a HUGE lesson…

[Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip]

So you buy a used electric car for $11,000, a Ford with only 16,000 miles on it, you’re 17 years old, this is your car and you really like it… and six months later, the battery dies and you need a new one.

Fourteen thousand dollars! Ouch!

A new battery from a regular car will run you $50 to $120. But for an electric car–well, maybe some kindly liberal will lend you the $14,000.

We have nincompoops in our so-called government telling us we should all get rid of our old-fashioned gasoline-powered cars and buy electric vehicles. What the heck, they can afford it! (Pete Buttigieg, “What–me worry?”) Besides which, you should all be stuck with mass transit anyway: your hardship and inconvenience mean absolutely nothing to them. It’s up to you to Save The Planet!

We are governed by people who have nothing in common with us and who do not represent us.

That is not the way this country was supposed to work.

  1. And then there’s the problem of what to do with the dead battery, which is bigger and far more toxic than an ordinary car battery.

    1. Electric cars are simply not yet ready for prime time.
      Henry Ford virtually created the middle class by producing affordable cars.
      Our current leads act like they’re trying un-create the middle class.

  2. Wow! I had no idea that those batteries cost so much. I haven’t bought a car in a long while. But wouldn’t $14,000 go a long way to buy a good used car?

  3. I wonder, if the car body on an electric car is still good, if the battery dies, couldn’t someone who is really handy, for less than $14,000 adapt the car for a gasoline engine?
