Just took a road trip with my daughter and it raises many questions for me about the real viability of electrics. I’ll start with. Charging infrastructure. In many cities people park on the street. So parking meters would need to be replaced with charging ports. I can’t imagine how far away we are from that. Then while Tesla’s supercharger stations work the reality is with any sort of crowd you could be there a long time before you can even charge. In the case of apple car play rerouting you around traffic you may miss your recharge entirely. Gas stations by contrast are both quick and ubiquitous. then the big question. How are we going to dispose of/recycle all those batteries. Electrics are green option but if they poison the planet that’s not really a solution. How come no one is talking about this and there are no government regulations that if a manufacturer builds an electric the disposal plans and facility needs to be built in. Surely this is very much in line with green/statal Thinking, so why the silence, it’s not as though one needs a crystal ball to see this will be an issue. I can see Europe and China mandating electrics but the USA is far more vast and the car occupies a different role. Currently electrics are fancy comuter cars for wealthy elites. if there’s not the political will to raise gas taxes then expensive electrics are going to be tough to mandate, plus you need electric infrastructure. seems like In USA there will be more and more electric penetration but I can see it stalling at 15-20% of the market due to economics and environmental issues. That means IMO ice is around in USA for a very long time.
