Idahoans Need to Embrace the Future and Switch to Electric Cars
Idaho seems full of the proud masses who resist the march of progress, but the time has come to leave our rugged, gas-guzzling tradition in the dust and submit to the era of the electric vehicle. (EV). Some of you might say that EVs just aren't practical for the average Idahoan, but I'd like to suggest that you're just being short-sighted. If Idaho would finally swallow its pride, imagine the array of benefits we'd enjoy.
No more gas stations
Who needs the convenience of refueling in mere minutes when you can stand around a charging station for hours, admiring the scenic beauty of a parking lot?
Adventures in the mountains
You might be thinking, "But what about my trips to the mountains?" Adventure awaits, especially if your battery dies. Just think of it as an unplanned camping trip.
Say goodbye to DIY
Miss changing your oil and doing basic car maintenance? No worries! With your EV, you can let the professionals handle it... or wait patiently as your software updates. Both are equally enjoyable.
The joy of range anxiety
Who needs a thrill ride, when you can experience the thrill of not knowing whether you have enough charge to make it to your destination or end up stranded on a back country road?
Why worry about getting a decent campsite?
You know how it’s always a race to grab the best campsites during busy weekends? Well, with an EV, you won't have to worry about that mad dash. Instead, you'll have the exclusive opportunity to watch from the comfort of your charging station as gas vehicles whiz by, claiming all the prime real estate in the mountains. Take your time, enjoy the view, and bask in the warm glow of the charging station's LED lights. Those other campers don't know what they're missing!
The magic of gas-powered charging in a pinch
And for those times when you might find yourself a tad too far from civilization (and charging stations), fear not! Just bring along a trusty diesel generator to charge up your EV. Who said you can’t have your eco-friendly cake and eat it with a side of petroleum? Irony? Never heard of it.
It should be painfully clear by now. Idaho's future is the electric vehicle. After all, who needs practicality, when you can have progress?
