@tla123: Ufff, cannot agree here: It depends on so many factors: How often you drive, what distance, how long you use a car etc. etc. “Experts” say more and more that EVs are sometimes far worse than a modern diesel engine where in some cases the air that gets out of the exhaust pipes is cleaner than before combustion. It also depends if you think CO2 is the devil (which I do not - CO2 is life) or assume there are other far more dangerous substances produced by cars: NO, fine particles, tyre wear particles etc… This is just my opinion, nothing more. What I definatly know is that old Porsches or supercars have by far the least envionmental impact: People are driving not much with them and they keep them for their lifetime. A friend of mine got rid of his Tesla S first edition - repairs and battery replacement would have been too expensive. He could not even drive 90km with 100kmh anymore.
For me the worst thing is that like in other businesses, cars, EVs AND combustors, have become a disposable product. Built as cheap as possible, very difficult to repair yourself, small motors with a lot of turbopower that won`t last very long or batteries that need to be exchanged and disposed. THAT is the real threat for our envionment in my opinion, the complete kill of sustainability. Kind regards.
