After months of searching for her ideal car, Mr. Davis had found one whose engine he could replace with powerful electric motors, inverters and batteries. Since the work would take several months, he suggested Ms. Butler drive the roadster around for the weekend, pre-surgery. Her passion, her dream of the car fades away.”“When she gets it back,” Mr. Davis said, “she can just press the pedal and go.”Gasoline-to-EV conversions are not new.

FILE PHOTO: New hydrogen fuel cell trucks made by Hyundai are pictured at the Verkehrshaus Luzern (Swiss Museum of Transport) in Luzern, Switzerland October 7, 2020. HHM, a joint venture between Hyundai and Swiss hydrogen company H2 Energy, has been renting out “green” hydrogen trucks to commercial clients in Switzerland since last October in the world’s most advanced pilot in the field. Although more expensive than battery electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicles, driven by on-board hydrogen, will potentially benefit from Europe’s desire to build a world-leading industry around the hydrogen technology. Bosch, a fuel cell proponent, has entered into a joint venture with China’s Qingling Motors to supply fuel cell systems for 2022/2023. U.S. engine maker Cummins, due to start building a fuel cell system factory in Herten, Germany, later this year, sees no conflict.

Allison said Mercedes had struggled before on the streets of Monaco while going on to win championships with some ease and the circuit remained a "significant Achilles Heel" for their car. Hamilton struggled to get heat into the tyres all weekend and paid a price in performance, qualifying only seventh with Verstappen on the front row.

Covid-19 has disproportionately affected Black and Hispanic people, but they’re getting vaccinated at lower rates than white people, the Kaiser Family Foundation found. Public health authorities have responded by shifting efforts away from mass vaccination sites and focusing on communities with the lowest vaccination rates. This hyperlocal approach, using census-style canvassing operations, education campaigns and mobile vaccination events, hinges on making the shots easy to reach — and helping the hesitant change their minds. She said she would now reassess getting vaccinated. Mecca Shabazz, 26, of Detroit, told canvassers she hadn't gotten vaccinated yet but was considering it.
