• There are several benefits of electric cars over gasoline cars, some of which are: 1. Environmentally friendly: Electric cars produce zero emissions which means they don't pollute the environment. They help in reducing carbon emissions, and the more electric cars on the road, the less harmful pollutants will be in the air. 2. Lower operating costs: Electric cars require less maintenance, have fewer parts that can wear out and need replacing, and electricity is much cheaper than gasoline. 3. Quiet and comfortable: Electric cars are quieter and smoother than gasoline cars because they don't have an internal combustion engine. 4. Reduced dependence on oil: Since electric cars run on electricity, they are less dependent on oil than gasoline cars, which means they can help reduce our dependence on foreign oil. 5. Government incentives: Electric cars may qualify for government incentives and subsidies, making them more affordable than gasoline cars. Overall, electric cars are a better choice in terms of environmental impact, energy efficiency, and operating costs.

      Stop overselling it. It doesn't eliminate pollution, just reduces it. It isn't necessarily cheaper, either, at least not without the government incentives.
  • Electric cars batteries must be charged to operate. Most power generating facilities require fossil fuel to produce electricity. Batteries wear out and must be replaced. Unless properly disposed of they pollute the environment more than fossil fuels. Electric cars can only go about 250 miles between charging therefore they require over half again as much time to complete a 1000 mile trip, longer in mountainous areas. If your batteries go dead out on the highway you can't go to a gas station and get a couple of gallons of electricity to get your car into a town. The original cost is much higher than fossil fuel cars. The weight is more because batteries are heavier thus harder on the roadbeds. Give me a fossil fueled car anytime.
  • More enviromental waste raping the earth for short term gains that in the long term are just more industrial waste. Don't worry about exploiting children or poisening workers in lithium mines. Go and see what a lithuium mine does to the earth is it worth it? If there was no tax breaks and electric cars had to surive on their own merits would they still exist? How about some of these mining companys make good the earth they mined? When a tesla is charged from a diesal generator how many litres per hundred Kilometers does it use?

      No more wars in the Middle East fighting for oil.

      or putting up with culture that embraces female slavery, public whipping and beheading.

      You are a warmonger. You dont care about women in the middle east stop talking rubbish . See why I think you are a pathetic.
    • Beat Covid, Avoid Republicans
      No I don't. Please explain.
    • 11stevo73
      you are to stupid to explain anything too ,waste of time telling you anything. You'll try get it deleted anyway
  • I recently saw a break down as to what it costs to mine the lithium to produce enough for one battery. In diesel fuel alone it was over a thousand dollars. Electric cars with lithium batteries are not cheap to produce and are more costly than fossil fuel.

      We are just in the beginning stages. Do you remember Windows 95 and how much computers have changed just in 28 years? Well my guess is the batteries for electrics will get better too.
    • Thinker
      Yes, and there are better ways to produce electricity. Hydrogen is probably the best and readily available, and clean.
    • 11stevo73
      How does one recycle lithium? Lets rape the earth mining it. How long until all the ground water on earth is toxic?
  • Batteries don't last long and are 5,000 a pop, also they do not degrade well so not good for the environment. They give off RF radiation in an already flooded environment, you are beholden to the electrical mechanic and cannot fix the car yourself. If your car ended up in a lake and sunk you couldn't get out. If traffic is bad and stuck in a queue you could run out of power, it's not like you can walk to the nearest garage and get yourself some to charge the car. Will still have to generate a lot of electricity in order to charge everyone's car, and green power cannot do that alone, so we will end up having to build more nuclear plants. Electricity is expensive. Can't have one with heart implant, as the current from electric field surrounding the car, affects the device. It's quiet so gives no warning to pedestrians. They say they are better for the environment, hmm.
