Interesting video with good, detailed analysis by Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained.
Bottom line the thrust of the presentation is that gas engines are not going away anytime soon. Jason discusses four categories relevant in the comparison between gas and electric vehicles

  • Science: a. energy density greater in gasoline and Jason uses great visuals to bring that point home b. batteries are 100X heavier for less energy c. given the massive battery weight at this point in time passenger cars are doable but not so much for larger modes of transport like planes
  • Cost: initial purchase price for an electric vehicle is much higher and manufacturer profitability is lower
  • Environment
  • Consumer
