In my opinion Tesla have the best EV drivetrain (by which I mean battery plus control systems plus motor) in terms of performance and range. Though I think it is unwise of Musk to set up production in China as this greatly increases the risk of IP theft.
Right now you are probably right about hybrids particularly in Australia where the nature of some journeys are truly abnormal in terms of the range required.
PS - sometimes in the hotel carparks that are very busy all over Thailand, there are parking lot 'inspectors' to keep non-visitors out. Slip them a 50 Baht note and your car/bike will be looked after really good .
Thailand has a lot of Taxi and Parking scams - it is endemic and it aint going to change anytime soon.
If you think that because you know the law and dont have to pay, that when you return your bike/car will not be damaged, then you are ignorant. If you think that the Police will investigate and prosecute those who damaged your car/bike, then you are delusional.
What you do is smile and negotiate the price down to something you find acceptable. If they will not come down low enough for you, then leave the carpark - sometimes that will get them to accept a reasonable fee. To refuse to pay and walk away is stupid - refer paragraph 2.
Well said @Stardust - in fact all of your past statements on this China matter are accurate. But I sense a growing frustration with those members that continually respond and disagree and make ridiculous and ignorant comments. May I suggest that anyone who argues so aggressively for China being innovative and great, needs to be added to your ignore list. They clearly have some cognitive bias - and across all posts on any subject they are always pro-China.
Me suspects they are either just totally ignorant, or they are deliberately being 'difficult' - either way it is best to just ignore them. They have nothing worthwhile to say and no opinion worth listening to - if they were at our table in a pub/club, we would go find another table and continue our rational arguments and discussions without their ignorant interruptions.
