You should get a chrome mesh grill for it then.

Hell, replace all the grills on your car with chrome mesh grills, and put a bentley badge on it and claim it's bentleys new eco friendly model.

Bentley has a plug in hybrid concept already.
And the hybrid in the Mclaren and Porsche 918 isnt for envrioment. The mclaren gets 7 mpg. Its for more power and torque on demand, electric engines get torque instantly.

It was cuz emissions and they get tax credits for having hybrids and such.

Also, a nascar car was funded by dogecoin, and came in the top 20 in the talledega race. >:U

The car can have zero emissions but the range is 6.8 miles
6.8 fucking miles

It's not meant to save the planet or gas, its meant to go fast. Hybrid power gives torque instantly, while gas doesn't.

Gas has to build up and gives more power over time, while electricity is instant.

A Ford Excursion gets better MPG than a Mclaren P1.
The Porsche 918 is almost double the P1 in range, but still sucks.

A Volkswagen Jetta is more fuel efficent than both of those supercars combined.

If only they were diesel, they would have torks for days and be fuel efficient. :(

hybrid has the most advanced torque avaiable, its just expensive and hard to make high output.
The hybrid in the supercars is purely for assisting the gas in having on-demand torque.

Tesla is working on making a Electric pick up truck using the insta torque trick, since it's more useful than any other in torque, problem is, mass-producing electric motors for fleets is expensive.

And americans dont like buying non ford, ram, or GMC/Chebby trucks. So that coupled with the Electric car wont go over well and it will flop.

AND theres no way it will be able to haul much of anything for long cuz electric, and lifting it which is what most trucks are used for, will prolly void the warranty cuz it will do damage to the transmission.

Americans will buy Tesla because Tesla is american

They're obviously going to figure it out, Tesla isn't some shitty company that doesn't know what their doing. Their newest car has so much press coverage and sold more than all 3 of it's german rivals combined. And it's only been around for a year.

Again, the kind of people who buy trucks dont want electric cars, let alone ones that arent ford, GMC/Chebby, or Ram, they care more about brand than features. The only way it will sell well is if tesla pulls a toyota and sells it under one of those brands as well.

My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world. And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came the wind carried the same thing... Death. But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin. I coveted that wind, I suppose. It can only be called fate... That here, I would again gather the three with the crests... That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder... That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down... The power of the gods... The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted!
