Yep. Unless we go full nuclear or able to extract electricity from good vibe and sun shine, hybrid is the most efficient way for cars.

Electric cars are merely the next technological monopoly for corporations that plan on continuing to sell you the idea that you're saving the planet, whilst they continue to contribute 70%+ of all pollution they want to blame on average people for merely existing, etc.

I think there's a good bit of truth to this. After all, this is a for-profit industry that still has a gigantic carbon footprint.

Electric cars travel further and this will continue to improve, less mechanical parts which mean fewer points of error & less parts being replaced.

They are the future, it will still take time for countries to adapt the correct infostructure for the i.e Electricity stations, Garages to learn how to fix them... but investment-wise people will buy them. it's just a part of technological advancements, take Cigarettes and Vape for example, DVD CD Stores and Netflix streaming.

You could read their marketing strategy as well and you would come away with the conclusion not that there's a bit of truth in this, more so, oh this is true.

Electric cars are impractical for the average consumer but you can make them work if you want to and it's even easier if you are a 2 car household.  I have driven electric for the past 10.5 years (7 years in a Nissan Leaf, 3.5 years in a Fiat 500e) and I have covered 170,000 miles gas-free.  You can't road trip in either of these but my commute is 52 miles (26 miles one-way) and I can handle that, no problem.  I charge at home every week night and rarely have to charge anywhere else. I have never been stranded any where but over the past 10 years, I have forgotten to plug in 3 times.

Sounds like a replacement for a bicycle in bad weather.

Or for the cardio-challenged.  I am no longer young enough to want to ride a bike 26 miles after a 12 hour shift.  :laugh:  Although, I guess if I had ridden a bike 160,000 miles over the last decade my gut would be flat as a board.

Don't you think at the end of the day electric vehicles just give tech companies even more power over us?

I once had the power go out for 2 weeks, the one saving grace in situations like that is having technology that doesn't rely on electricity.

I don't see my electric company as a 'Tech' company.  It's more of a public utility.  When I lived in a house, I always charged at home.  Now that I live in an apartment, I have 4 different places I charge.  But that's not for everyone, the public charging infrastructure has a long way to go.
