That is quite true, however, all that sunlight is quite trivial at the moment, for what little can be captured.Plenty of sunlight in the outback but no petrol stations..
Perhaps there’s someone who will be willing to sit around for the whole entire day just to collect maybe 15 miles of charge from the sunlight, if they happen to be out there in summer.
However the vast majority would say, phuck that for a joke !
There’s only 2000 Tesla charging locations (average 8 charges per location) located on the entire planet.
And a small fraction of those are in Victoria Australia.
(Any other charging option also becomes impractical, for convenient location and time to charge)
But there’s always a petrol station in the last little town you go through on your way to and from civilisation, where one can fuel up in 10 minutes.
So if perchance they used a full tank to get to the last town before getting to the playground, and full tank to get back from the play ground, they would pretty much have a full tank to use out in the playground.
Much more limiting, and much more planning needed to use an EV.
I’m prepared to live with that for the Cybertruck, or, rather I’m prepared to leave it at home on some specific trips.
But perhaps I’m a pussy, and not like some of the die hard people here, who if things get a little difficult, will not hesitate to amputate their own arm, or drink their own piss, or eat one their travelling companions !
But for anyone else thinking of taking up an invitation to go bush bashing in their buddies Cybertruck, I would think twice before answering.
At least unless there’s another friend coming along who can’t run as fast as you . . . . oh and make sure he doesn't weigh too much either,
you don't want him to be reducing your driving range too.
