That's kind of like saying go ahead and strap this OK parachute that doesn't work really well, because eventually they will be safer then crossing the street. Right now the US has a woefully inadequate electrical grid not to mention one that seems to start a lot of fires on the West Coast. I do not now nor never will give a damn what Europe does because every continent has different situations. Here in the US, folks kept telling us that nuclear power stations would destroy the planet, so please don't forget what percentage of electricity in France is made by nuclear power compared to the US . Short story is we don't need to be mandating and building hundreds of thousands of Evs just to get better technology for later. That can be done on a very tiny scale because we all know that existing Battery Technology is not going to cut it. Unless someone can be mandated to fart out a better battery there's no sense having an entire electric vehicle industry pretending it's already been done. If it was that easy, then we could simply mandate that California not keep setting itself on fire and polluting the air to the East.
It is kind of funny to me how everyone is going so wild on the SUV motif. An SUV is just a minivan with the floor raised a few inches and the roof left where it was. That gives you more room below the floor and less room above. Personally, I'll stick with a low slung luxury sedan as one mode of transportation and a full size van for getting work done, and as many sporty toys as I can afford for in between. 😉
Nonsense, the article was typed on a Google tablet with that new Dominion spell checker. If it doesn't like what you wrote, it changes it for you. (that would explain all the articles on replacing classic car engines with electric motors) 🤔
