an interesting window seems to be closing on the whole debate over battery cars. there is a general belief that they are a fait de compli for the near future. europe is committing itself to them and there are governmental initiatives in some states and cities to support and favor them. there is no debate regarding whether this is truly efficient; it is not. they will pollute more if you consider how the electricity is generated. they will strain the grid. the battery production and recycling is very energy and resource intensive.|
short run passenger vehicles are one thing as there might be a need and practicality using more conventional batteries, however the management at UPS seems to have lost its mind as they are going to convert their NYC fleet to battery electric only. heavy load vehicles are not practical which is why Tesla's truck idea is pure bull****.
how far can they push this BS. europe will be in a position to have to reevaluate the decision to require them just like when they made the mistake of favoring diesels without serious pollution controls.
anyone have an idea as to how this will play out? the regular guy could take a real economic screwing if they are mandated or the market shifted towards them.
