Re: Why EV penetration will be slow and limited

Absolutely a post that adds insight to the issue.  Thanks.
 
 “In other words, we may be worrying too much about

 

1) The need to upgrade the electrical grid.
 

2) Lithium supply (In a few years lithium will be recycled from old EVs)

3) Demand hit for hydrocarbon fuels. The 20% of EVs on the road will be running on coal (China) or natural gas (US/Europe).”

 
LOL, the grid issues come from the few honest people looking at the issue.  Perhaps it is their way of saying this quick transition will never happen.  As we sit here in October of 2021 the world is experiencing Doom’s Math and Physics class 101 - actually sooner than I expected.
 
In our still restricted travel lifestyle by the time winter comes we will have taken to car trips.  Each of about 250 miles one way.  In either situation an EV would not work.  We have two cars, both 2021,  - a nice one for my wife and our trips and a lesser basically for my use.  That said, I would not hesitate to take my car on a trip (Bearcat football game) it is not that lesser.  Ergo - we need range in both our cars.  A third one for virtue signaling is out of the question.
 
IMO we will soon see full EV market penetration stall.  The obvious answer is hybrids - but they seem to get little attention.  
Sit back and audit Math and Physics 101.  I expect those taking the course even on a pass fail basis will not be saved a failing grade.  LOL - the pass fail option was available to me as a senior in college.  I took one class that way and screwed myself because I aced it and lost the boost in my accum.
