Electric cars are now ready to take over thanks to advances in battery technology and their inherent benefits: torque, handling, maintenance.
“I think electric cars are the future, not mainly because they’re better for the environment (which they are if you drive the car for any reasonable length of time) but because they are just better cars. The have better torque and acceleration, better handling, they’re more efficient, quieter, they don’t smell, they’re cheaper to run and best of all you never have to visit a gas station – this appeals to me. I never have to worry about being low on gas because every morning my car is charged and ready to go – just like my phone and laptop. And if you’re worried about range, don’t. Almost all trips can already be done in an electric car with modest battery pack. And fast chargers along the way make it possible to do longer road trips if necessary. You have to make rest stops anyway, just time them with the charging. And consider that battery tech is getting dramatically cheaper, smaller, lighter. All these reasons are why I see the #future of cars as electric.”

To date the conversation has always been about converting to electric transportation: cars, trucks, etc. What I have never seen as an article discussing the age of a battery pack, the cost to replace the battery pack, and what is done with the depleted batteries.
Dear John, I believe this is a huge part of ‘What happens next?’
We all know change has to come but like BREXIT ~ everyone is quick to say YES to the change without looking at the other end game.
I had NO idea, things would be so complicated!
Are the leaders of electric car production working what the Scrapage deals will be?
