How can every single automaker plan to go all-electric? This picture just blew me away. It is from Twitter, but I could copy it without actually going to Twitter, which I despise.
The description of the above situation is as follows:
Green madness. Electric cars belonging to the City of Paris. No one will buy them because of the cost of the replacement battery. Who will dispose of this junk, especially the batteries?
The EU is basically dictating to all car companies within its jurisdiction that the “energy transition” from internal-combustion engines which use gasoline, to electric motors, must proceed quickly. All the European, and most American automakers have determined to go all-electric. But what about the situation above? And what if the Public does not want electric cars? What will people do when their Governments demand that they buy electric cars, and forbid them to own, buy, or register cars that use gasoline?
I think the public all over the world should not allow their governments to require them to buy and drive electric cars which do not go nearly as far on a charge, take forever to recharge, can’t operate in very cold weather, require battery replacement in only a few years (at 1/3 the cost of the car itself), are dangerous in a crash (electrical fires take different fire-fighting methods), and cost much more than the equivalent internal-combustion engined car.
Hat-tip to my Ricochet friend Roberto for publishing this picture! Definitely worth at least 1,000 words.
