The entire industry will fall on its face once the public realizes that EVs are not green at all.

They are much better for the environment than standard cars. And would be much much much better if we also used renewable energy for homes more.

warning Boring article with lots of math

They are not any greener than a standard car. That's just what you've been told. It takes energy to mine the lithium, purify the lithium, build the lithium batteries, to charge those batteries and to dispose of them properly. Energy is not free.

I literally linked you a very detailed article explaining all the math.

Lol this guy "that's what you've been told" which is just projection for how they get their information.

It's absolutely hilarious because the only reason he's arguing against proven facts is because that's what he's been told.

Thank you for sharing the truth even though, in here, the truth is harrased by fossil fuel industry stooges and ignorance.

That's not the multi-billion dollar mass manipulation campaign talking.

The open secret about EVs is that they're not about being green, they will be cheaper and easier to manufacture, and cheaper and easier to own than traditional vehicles. EVs are the future of the industry regardless of environmental impact.

Edit: Downvoted by a lot of people who aren't mechanics, I see! The truth is EVs have less moving parts. They're way easier to maintain and manifacture because of it. We're right on the border of them being cheaper to produce than traditional vehicles already, and in a few years once that scale tips, we'll never go back. Source - Almost all of my friends and family work for Ford or GM, several as engineers. These companies aren't investing in EVs out of the goodness of their heart, they know it makes financial sense.
