Five Fantastic Failures Featuring Electric Cars

Five Fantastic Failures Featuring Electric Cars

Like most Americans, I goof off at work. I’m fortunate in that the company I work for doesn’t block Youtube, and I take advantage of this generosity. During a recent youtube binge, I thought it would be a good idea to see what kind of electric car mishaps I could find. I found five gems that I think you will enjoy.

  1. Little Boy Pushing a Nissan Leaf 

Okay so hes got a little help from Dad, but this little guy is super strong! I hope I can count on my kids to help me push if I ever run out of juice…

2. Richard Hammond Crashes $1 Million Rimac Concept Car

In a crash he later described as “like being in a tumble dryer full of bricks going down a hill,” The Grand Tour star Richard Hammond utterly destroyed Rimac’s Concept One in 2017. Luckily, he only suffered a minor injury to his knee. The Rimac however, was not so lucky…

3. Faraday Future Fails to Self-Park

The Faraday Future made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2017. Unfortunately, the car’s self-parking function failed miserably during this demo. Maybe it just had stage fright?

4.  Woman Tries to Fill Tesla Up with Gas

The laughter of the two people filming this is funnier than the situation itself in my opinion. Read through the comments to chuckle even more.

5. Electric Car Mod Gone Wrong

Our final offering is from Gaylord Weiner (definitely his real name). At any rate, Mr. Weiner shows us the wrong way to modify your gas-guzzler into an all electric.
