I agree with that. Not only are electric cars much more efficient than combustion cars (they are even more efficient than hydrogen cars), they are also mechanically simpler, requiring less people to manufacture, and have cheaper maintenance.Once solid batteries come out into use (more stable than traditional Li-ion, more energy density, faster charging times) I think all these technologies and conventional combustion vehicles will be dead.
TBH, i dont think so. The former soviet area has low density population, huge distances and is poor. AFAIK, the moscow-beijing HSR link is economically non-start (seems to me like a political project), and the other former republics are too poor, low traffic, and distant from eastern china, to merit a HSR link.This train with dual bogies has tremendous possibilities.
The more I hear this crap, they more I wish that the damn San Andreas goes off and sink Silicon Valley for good. Just because China is doing better doesn’t give the USA has to right to go bully and slander others with no consequences
