Serious proliferation of those charging stations down the peninsula and a reasonably priced and Baja-proven electric pickup might just cure me of my gasoline addiction.

I did not see it myself, but I remember a post about two years ago on this forum reporting a Nissan Leaf, pulling a small trailer with a generator on it!

Getting a Quickie ?


Or, gassing up ?

Pumping 25 gallons (good for 350-400 miles) into my Dodge takes about 5 minutes. If one needed more range, Jerry cans and saddle tanks can do the job.

I see one reference that claims (for a compact EV) 30 minutes for each 40 miles. Is that about right ?

Total range around 200-300 miles ?

Elec cars are great for commuting, short trips around town, etc. Some of them got whiplashing acceleration. Fun.
Unfortunately, the refueling time is long, especially if not a superchsrger station. So elec vehicles not really good for long road trips.
The teslas are way nicer and more fun than a tacoma or f150!

Forgive my ignorance but isn’t most electricity on the Baja diesel generated? Doesn’t make a lot of sense if so.

Not likely to be an issue.

At least from the border down to Ensenada BCN is on the California electrical grid, which relies on a combination of renewable and LNG generation sources.
https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015-09/documents...
It looks like the plan for the rest of the peninsula is to move from internal combustion (diesel, other low grade fuel oil) to mostly LNG generation in a few years. Don't know if that makes any more sense.

And another startup hits the market, this one claiming a 15-minute recharge time with a 300 to 500-mile range depending on the model and a starting price of $45,000. Hmmmm.

For Baja not very practical for distance travel. IMO, just drive to a destination and spend the night at each charging place or in some cases go to a charging place and spend several hours then go again. Would take week or more to get from San Diego to Cabo.

This whole industry is in its infancy. All of the issues thrown up here will be mitigated in time. At present EV's are more appropriate for local and commute usage. This will change as technology catches up and renewable energy replaces fossil fuels. It just makes too much sense to ignore or dismiss. It's already feasible for autonomous long-distance trucking.

With four rotating tires as generators, why is there no tech on the cars recharging themselves when driven?
