Anyone got marshmallows?
Suddenly there are doubts. Suddenly it may be that electric cars (EVs) are not the answer, after all–indeed, that they are very far from being the answer to anything.
A researcher for the auto industry says electric cars’ batteries, which cost a fortune, are easily–very easily!–damaged and the cost of fixing the problem could be prohibitive… rendering EVs “effectively uninsurable” (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/money/net-zero/electric-cars-risk-becoming-uninsurable/).
Holy spontaneous combustion! Remarks like this can cost you: “[W]e have no way of understanding whether the battery has been compromised or damaged in any way.” And we all know what happens, don’t we, when an electric car’s battery gets up on the wrong side of the bed.
And there’s also a “threat of thermal runaway.” That really does sound bad.
Hey, World Economic Forum! Hey, radical greenies! Back to the drawing board, eh? Looks like we’ll get to keep our cars a little longer. Curses, foiled again.
