I love how people want to push everyone to electric cars whilst ignoring the fact that
1) most of them are still pretty expensive
2) the electricity that is being used to charge those cars is still likely coming from fossil fuel power plants (at least over here in the states)
If people really want to be "green", hydrogen powered cars are the way to go.
I will say there's part of me that would love never having to visit a gas station and just plugging in the car each night, but I think they are still only practical for daily driving to and from work and not for people that tend to take a lot of out of town trips.
Yea, like you I like the idea of plugging in overnight and never having to visit the petrol station but EV definitely aren't the 'green' solution they are made out to be.
Maybe better than diesel and petrol but still the energy is coming from fossil fuels as you say.
For me I'm not putting money into brand new cars at the moment and will wait to see if anything comes along like hydrogen to better EV's.
Lately I've been buying older cars I've always quite fancied owning but were too expensive at the time and for me is a way of being environmentally friendly as no energy is used to build another new car.
Bought an E92 BMW 3 Series Coupe a few weeks back with full leather interior, service history etc and loving driving it at the moment.
