BUT, there is no infrastructure for charging mllions of cars. The electrical grid would collapse with that kind of drain. And most countries are NOT putting serious money into infrastructure these days.

Electricity demand peaks during the day nd drops at night. There is a ton of unused generating capacity sitting around which could be run to charge cars at night. It would actually make life easier for the grid not to have to turn on and off generators all the time.

tons of nonsense, here in Texas we get brown outs from all the heavy AC use 24 hours a day. millions of cars recharging would melt the wires off the poles.

Er... no. A Tesla does 3 miles on 1 kwh so even if you drive a 1000 miles a month it will use 300 kwh - and you guys down there can easily suck down 2-3-5 thousand kwh anyway

IF hundreds or thousands of guys were charging them with fast chargers, believe me, the wires would melt off the poles in many texas neighborhoods. Lots of our wires are still from the 1950s in downtown houston. Many don't even have insulation left on them. You can even see the lights dim at night when the AC cuts on and off in many houses.
