A hybrid still has a gas powered engine & sound, as in the H replacement and the A replacement. So yes I will buy a hybrid. Full electric is another story.

Interesting on the Ferrari forum. One camp says people will still buy F-Cars on the name alone while the other camp says there will be nothing to differentiate F-EVs from other EVs.

I agree with Russ, Hybrid yes but full electric is a bridge too far at this point. ;)

Hybrid maybe. Full electric and you鈥檝e lost me on so many fronts. Including the 鈥渂etter for the environment鈥 since VW research proved that鈥檚 not true.

I believe 50,000 pounds of earth needs to be mined just to make the battery pack for a single Tesla. So all those tree huggers that are driving Teslas should look into a mirror and see if their faces are melting.
In my home town they reopened the lithium mine, Trucks the size of buildings and down they go into the pit. Environmentally friendly? No F-N way. This mine is a pilot project to see if it's viable. Then they plan to deforest the entire region. I won't go into details all the problems it creates. If it's anything like gold mining, the rock dust is thrown into the wild, creating miles of slab, a quick sand sludge toxic as hell and nothing will ever grow again. Check out the waste mountain out back.

It's very profitable business: rare earth materials for lithium battery and bottled drinking water from that fresh pod of green water :)

Yes they probably sell that water into water bottles for fancy people called "Alkaline" water. :sick:

As a young man I used to work in a lot of mines and one day I stumbled on 3 rusty and dented buckets filled with what looked like mud, I was curious and I approached them and all of a sudden a security guard popped out of nowhere with a shot gun and told me to stay back.. I thought he was a little nutty, I asked why he was guarding buckets of mud, he explained it was concentrated gold slurry and was going to the last process to turn it into gold bars.

By then, everyone will be forced to only use mass transit. No cars, no personal transportation. Another form of government control.

Do you have a link to that study?

Thx
First, correction the study was from Volvo and can be found here
If you don鈥檛 want to read the 50 page report, CarScoops has a short summary article. Volvo Says Manufacturing An Electric Car Generates 70 Percent More Emissions Than Its ICE Equivalent

And this adds a bit more color to the picture.In the tight race to market, EVs are becoming less green 鈥 research report

This research hasn鈥檛 even broached talking about the lifespan of a battery pack and replacement costs (carbon footprint or $$) which should also factor in. I鈥檓 sure someday manufacturers, our power grids, and everything else may align to actually benefit the environment. But it鈥檚 not now.
