1 comment

Technikari Episode 9: On this episode, we talk about DPA’s announcement that it is installing electric vehicle charging stations.

  • What will this do for electric vehicle adoption in Zim?
  • Since Zimbabwe’s car imports are predominantly 2nd hand, so where will we service the EVs?
  • Which fully or partially electric vehicle would we buy?

Rich Rebuilds is the channel you are thinking of. Sunday night’s won’t be the same! Subscribe to Uncle Rich now so he can afford 3 piece fried chicken again! But for real, his current project is really interesting.

Anyway, stumbling blocks that put imaginary rich-guy-me off:
-battery replacements would kill all the savings made
-subscription features, but thats getting into the auto industry in general
-lack of third party service options
-being at the mercy of over the air updates
-absurdly slow charging on standard domestic power
-being more or less city bound
-autonomy features that have never seen a kombi driver drive
-do we even get government rebates or tax incentives?

All in all it’s gonna be a long road to an FEV future in Zim.
