And then have a dead battery and the vehicle be useless for hours on end.
You're perfectly free to have your opinion, but that doesn't make you right and me wrong. It just means you have a different opinion. I'm fine with that. There is no need to get triggered about it.
The fact remains that EVs are not "clean" given how much power worldwide is dirty power. Let's not even talk about how toxic the batteries are when they have reached the end of their serviceable lives.
EVs just present a new landscape of environmental hurdles to overcome.
Are EV's the future? Yes. Are they better for the environment? The impartial jury is still out on that one.
I have a solar roof in a place where it's summer 9 months out of the year, but that still does not produce enough electricity to be 100% off the grid.
