But how are they going to produce all the electricity needed to run them?

The EU would really step up the game if it started helping landowners to produce small energy at home from wind and solar and directly distributing their energy to the grid.

Talk about wars, politics and freedom all you want. This would be real freedom.

Outsource Energy Production to Russia and resource gathering to Africa so no one sees all the icky fumes and they can think theyre saving the planet

It's probably been said a million times before, but an electric car is less polluting than an ICE car, even if the electricity is generated from coal (the most polluting option). Also, the pollution won't be at street level in a densely populated area, so will have less immediate affects to the population, let alone the reduction of effects to the environment.
