I don’t mind working on them, but we don’t see a whole lot of them in our area. And I usually don’t have much choice. I get all the crap at our store that nobody else wants to work on (hybrids, transit vans, cng/propane vehicles,etc). Probably why Im usually 1-2 weeks behind all the time and other guys at work sitting around complaining they ain’t making any money lol. I believe I have put myself in a good position for the future because the auto industry isn’t looking good. Experienced guys leaving the field and the younger ones either don’t want to work or just get overwhelmed. Im fortunate I got in the business when I did, I still need at least 30 more years!And, yes, they can kill you!!!! At 69 years old, I've elected not to work on them. Get at least one to 2 calls a mth now, expect it to go higher next year. One lady exclaimed, " Why can't I find anyone to work on this thing?". Geez lady, you should have thought about that before you bought it!!!
The whole ev thing isn’t funny. They gotta get charged somewhere, wether on the grid if its a full battery vehicle (or solar, but Im sure it takes a fairly decent setup to fully charge it), or a partial hybrid that can use the gas engine or plug in to charge the battery, then the full hybrid that needs the gas engine to charge the battery. They do get some free charging through regenerative braking, but its not enough to keep up.Not what I would call funny....I hope some of this is a temporary phase.
I've seen some neat pictures of solar carports to charge your ev at home.
