That's simply not true. The latter part yes, will be the end goal but EVs are definitely a step along the path to reducing the damage we are doing to the environment.Presentation is cringy but the content is valid. Electric cars will do little to save the planet. Only a massive reduction in population will.
It is true. Electric cars will have a marginal impact. Even if/when most of the electricity to power them is from non-fossil sources the pollution and resource depletion from manufacturing the cars can't be avoided. Only solution is a lot fewer people using a lot less stuff.
You're quite simply wrong...EV drivers are damaging our environment even more !
You probably should do more researchYou're quite simply wrong...EV drivers are damaging our environment even more !
The cycle of making a car starts with raw materials being extracted, refined, transported and manufactured into several components that will be assembled to produce the car itself. This process is very much the same in both conventional and electric cars. Nevertheless, at the end of the manufacturing process, electric cars are the ones generating more carbon emissions, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Why is this? Because electric cars store energy in large batteries (the larger they are, the bigger their range is) that have high environmental costs. This happens because these batteries are made of rare earth elements (REE) like lithium, nickel, cobalt or graphite that only exist beneath the surface of the Earth and therefore depend on mining activities with very polluting processes.
They probably react in a negative way through experience. I've owned a couple of Mercedes and they have been far and away better quality than any other car. By some distance. Some people do enjoy bashing the premium brands. I often wonder whyThis guy makes good content and if you ever tune into his live Q&As, he's extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He's basically passing on his 50+ years experience as a mechanic and keeps up to speed with the latest advancements and technology. It's notable that car manufacturers who have tried to link up with him never invite him back a second time because he asks the wrong questions and pulls no punches when giving his opinions.
If you're buying a car it's worth listening to his advice. It's no secret that he says that BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Land Rover are some of the worst quality vehicles he's worked on. They can start to fall apart after a relatively short period of time and mileage. People who own and like these brands obviously tend to react to him in a negative way. A few weeks ago he exposed how Tesla don't often even have their own workforce to build cars. They bring in contractors at a much cheaper labour cost.
contractors don't tend to be cheaper in any industry, so I'd question the veracity of a comment like that, and therefore the allusion he is attempting to make from it.A few weeks ago he exposed how Tesla don't often even have their own workforce to build cars.

Good point. Although at this point I should declare you can't in any way consider Tesla a premium brand. Some do because of their cost but that's wrong and to not understand what premium means.contractors don't tend to be cheaper in any industry, so I'd question the veracity of a comment like that, and therefore the allusion he is attempting to make from it.
My previous car to the Honda I have now was a Merc, I feel as if I've got a far better vehicle now.Good point. Although at this point I should declare you can't in any way consider Tesla a premium brand. Some do because of their cost but that's wrong and to not understand what premium means.
Its about build quality, quality of materials used in construction and overall feel of the car. As much as I enjoy my Tesla it is badly lacking in the first, pretty poor in the second and ok in the third, with the build quality detracting from a surprisingly good driving experience.
A Mercedes on the other road, I just couldn't fault. Apart from poor customer service. The actual products themselves give you the feel of something we'll built and made from good materials.
