trouble is the batteries are still not good, but in 15 years I can see it improving...
people talking about freedom, use your freedom to leave Germany, or to protest, block this law...
I think it's an interesting idea... you can't deny that cars are generating a lot of air pollution.
They're actually really close...
A car that gets ~30mpg is 1.43lbs/c02 per mile.
A tesla with the 100kwh battery is ~1.5 lbs/mile.
That's just c02, not counting all of the other crap that comes out of the tailpipe.
And that's providing that 100% of the power is from a coal plant with 0% coming from a natural gas, renewable, etc.
Before someone screams bloody murder over how dirty the batteries are, The entire process of getting oil from the ground and making it gas, and then transporting, storing and selling that gas is not exactly clean ether.
Fun fact: Most gas stations in the usa can have a 3 gph leak on each of their products before any alarm goes off. That's 72 gallons of gas, usually x3(87,89,91) per day that can be dumped into the ground.
