Holiday makers frustrated by long waits to charge their Teslas in Croatia.
Here’s more on the folly of electric cars. Those who own electric vehicles may feel good about their perceived CO2 reductions, but that good feeling rapidly disappears in real life in many cases when these crappy cars leave them stranded.
Not only is the production of the raw materials to produce the batteries having a major impact on the environment, but so iis the disposal of the batteries.
Moreover, we’ve heard horror stories of the expense required to replace the batteries after a comparatively short life, making replacement uneconomical. It is a truly a folly with vast dimensions. Expect the e-car to end up on the garbage landfills of history – right with the mercury-laden energy saving lamps no one talks about anymore.
Germany’s RTL public broadcaster reports on how “Tesla drivers need nerves of steel on vacation in Croatia.” The Balkan country is a popular summer holiday destination for Germans, and other Europeans of course.
Waiting hours in extreme heat to charge up
According to RTL, dozens of Tesla drivers had to wait “in extreme summer heat in front of a charging station near the A1 highway in Otocac, Croatia, to charge their cars. Many are on their way from the capital Zagreb towards the coast.”
Someone forgot to tell Tesla drivers that Croatia charging infrastructure still has a ways to go. “Croatian media report that the sparse development of charging stations is responsible for the traffic jam.” Supposedly the country has only 8 places where you can charge a Tesla.
“According to Croatian authorities, this corresponds to the demand of currently registered electric cars in the vacation destination. The many tourists who take their electric cars on vacation have obviously not been considered in this calculation.”
E-car motorists probably also were not told that the air conditioner also significantly reduces the range of their eco-friendly car, thus making more hours-long charging stops necessary. Welcome to the green new deal (stupid)!

There is lot of places to charge ev’s in Croatia.
You can Charge Teslas in any other plases than Superchargers.
There are lots of places to stand around waiting to charge your EV in Crotia.
Fixed it for you Archie
Stand around in sweltering heat to charge their car batteries; when done, get in and immediately turn on the AC for relief, thereby draining their batteries faster so they can stand around and perspire again all that much sooner. Complain later to their rich friends over caviar and champagne that something must be done. Blame people who refuse to buy EVs, because obviously it must be their fault.
Sounds like some of the same people who are always in a hurry to get to the traffic light so they can wait impatiently for it to turn green as their blood pressure rises dangerously.
Great place for Croatian kids to open up a lemonade stand
There is the compensatory reward of knowing they are virtuous.
Are people expecting governments to set up charging stations all over the place? That would be a huge mistake. Gas stations were put up by private companies in response to the automobile market. People were buying thousands of cars, they needed gas stations. That’s the free market and it works. Charging stations should work the same way. Don’t let governments install charging stations, the taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for them.

0.90 kwh in one pound of coal. 1000 pounds of coal will generate enough electricity to charge a li-ion battery 900 kwh.
1500 kwh in one fully charged Tesla battery, 300 miles range, 5 kwh discharge per mile.
900/5 = 180 miles of driving an EV burns 1000 pounds of coal at the power plant.
Looks a bit wasteful.
If Nikola were around, he would sue Elon for using the name Tesla as a badge for an EV that is going to be worth less than worthless.
You should use correct numbers.
Tesla batteries are 55 to 100 kWh dependens of model. Not 900 or 1500 kWh.
And you can use ~3 kWh / mile.
Looks lil differend now.
Thank you for the correction.
A 100 kwh battery would be three miles per kilowatt hour to travel 300 miles.
At 3 kwh per mile, the distance would be 33 miles with 100 kwh of battery charge.
Tesla range, then would be 360 MPT (Miles Per Ton (of coal)). Your mileage may vary…
Ignoring that it is the intention of the elite to stop us from owning personal transport unless it is with a permit approved by them, it just takes a few minutes to consider the throughput of normal vehicles through the fuel pumps on a busy holiday day and then how much space would be taken up to charge the same number of battery vehicles. If will either be acres of land or huge blocks of charging buildings like car parks, and good luck with the fire safety on that….
