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.
