75% of the air pollution is caused by the industry which generates electrical power. The same industry that will have to refill your electric cars. It means an increase of maybe 50% of capacity. So in the end there will be no change in the pollution over all. You're just reloacting it. The ignorance necessary to believe that electric vehicles will change anything in the energy business and its fallout, is just staggering.

According to the US EPA, 34% of US carbon emissions come from the generation of electricity. Transportation accounts for 28% of US carbon emissions. It seems you have to revisit this issue before you call others ignorant .......

Yep...I figure that within 20 years most vehicles on the road will be electric. However, I'm getting little comment on how these things perform at minus 20C after sitting in a parking lot at some venue for three hours. Any video clips I have see try their best to minimize the hassle you have to go through to keeps these things running in cold weather. Get Elon to send his big brain types up here to work on solving this problem.

You'll probably see a 24% degradation in range or 30% if you use purely resistive cabin heating. If you're at home in your garage you can preheat your car while its still on the charge cable and see substantial improvement. Stay tuned, in the next year you're going to see some exciting improvements in battery technology.

Chuck O (1 month ago)
You can purchase one of those new small (inverter) style gensets that produce 3000W. You won't be able to keep driving though because of the genset's exhaust in the car. Also your stops will be long while you wait to recharge at Level 1 rates. Could make for a good emergency though.

the EV revolution will take more time than you think. 2040 projections in Europe, only 50 % of the market will be electric. and upgarde of the grid is needed, beyond that threshold. due to rail density in Europe, 400 km range won't be a necessity. for most users, 100-150 km will do the job.

Peopleare buying EVs because they are bribed to buy them with discounts and subsidies. When a country stops paying subsidies, like Hong Kong, EV sales drop like a brick. If they are to become mainstream they need to be rechargeable in about the same time as it takes to fill a gas tank and have about the same range as a tankful of gas, and cost about the same to buy without subsidies. A car like that is years away, and probably a long time after 2030.

AKS (6 months ago)
I checked them out and still bought a gas car. The higher insurance costs were a consideration, taking away about half the gas savings. The range is another issue......I drive too far daily for one to work for me. It also takes a long time to charge them up. Plus, battery replacement on some models is expensive once out of warranty (Ford Focus Electric....$25,000 USD, and in Canada, $60000 CDN). If those there issues were not there, I would have bought one.
Chuck O (1 month ago)
At 17,000 miles every year I'd have at least 3 oil changes to make. I don't do this myself so I'd have to make arrangements to have this done and its expensive especially if I use synthetic. Since I get far more range than I need each day (well over 200 miles), from refueling at home I also like the convenience of never having to go to a gasoline station (or a charging station). I don't have to plan around making stops to refuel which is a real pain in the Winter when its usually quite cold and nasty where I live. I also like not having to open the hood to check fluid levels. And you are wrong about recharge time. Only two seconds of my day spent refueling my vehicle, one second to plug it in before going to bed and one second to unplug it in the morning. The car is heated and defrosted before I leave my garage. I leave home with far more range than I can possibly use each day. And because its electric its far more dependable. Range might be reduced on an extremely cold day but you will never have to worry that it won't start. With any charge at all in the battery an electric car will go. Even if its only 25% charged I know with certainty that I will get to work in an electric car.

Lithium is NOT A HEAVY METAL. Also, heavy metals are not necessarily toxic. Iron, et al are essential nutrients and are heavy metals.

By definition lithium is a heavy metal because of its potential effect on the environment. But, not according to your high school Atomic chart where cadmium, lead and mercury are heavy metals. So, when used in a news report the term heavy metal is relative to the potential damage to the environment.

+redstone craft guy Correct, but then as always in research it can be the unrecognised influences that can make the difference which may not have been included in the replication effects, theoretically it is possible as Hydrogen is in the metals category, if only it can be demonstrated, as there would be a whole raft of different properties

billdale1 (7 months ago)
"EVs are the cars of the future!" Nooooo! Fuel cell cars are the cars of the future... and always WILL be! EVs are not the cars of the future, they are ALREADY HERE, and EATING UP the automotive market due to their far greater (5X to 6X) greater efficiency compared to gasoline cars; they are far more reliable, quiet and simple. Thde typical gasoline car has 2,000-3,000 moving parts--- each of which is parasitic of the car's efficiency--- and factors into its unreliability, and need for expensive maintenance. EVs have no more than a dozen or so moving parts, all of which turn on their own center of gravity, unlike pistons, valves, springs, connecting rods, etc. Fuel cell cars are inherently low in efficiency compared to EVs, require hydrogen which must be made from one of two process, each of which are problematical either for their inefficienty or non-renewable sources. FC cars have dozens of other thorny issues which are highly unlikely ever to be resolved, such as their lack of fueling infrastructure--- there are already tens of thousands of relatively inexpensive, safe, inconspicuous EV charging stations, as opposed to the dozen or so very expensive FC stations which no one is eager to pick up the tap for--- and who wants a hydrogen fueling station in their neighborhood that is extremely dangerous? Gasses under many thousands of pounds of pressure, hundreds of degrees below zero, just waiting for an accident? Some of the big car companies promote FC cars hoping that it will confuse buyers into not buying EVs, and hopefully sticking with gasoline for a while longer... and car maintenance and repairs are 60% of the cost of ICE car ownership. Driving an EV is as close to zero maintenance as you can get--- no tune-ups, oil changes, air filters, tranny service, etc... I have three EVs, and have spent nothing on maintenance on them in years except for windshield wipers and washer fluid, new tires every year or so, and other stuff even gasoline cars require. I will never again buy a gasoline car.

Beech Aircraft in the 73's was building a fuel cell.
Ed Maher (2 days ago)
Great reply. Beech Aircraft was working on fuel cells, and they were also used on early spacecraft. You are right, fuel cells are more difficult to create. However, if some breakthrough pop out of left field the potential is possible, but I think low grade nuclear engines are also still possible. A crash would not cause a huge hole in the ground or wide spread radiation.
billdale1 Well said
Loudmouth Libertarian (5 months ago)
Actually, current EV models DO have a transmission that needs to be serviced. Sure there's only 1 or 2 gears, but they will fail just as often as one driven by a gasoline or diesel engine. The only way to be TRULY free of transmission problems is to place the electric motors _in the wheels_, which currently NONE of the EV designs do. The hydrogen pressure thing _can_ be mitigated with the use of materials like graphene sponges or deuterium oxide powder, which are unlikely as the latter is a controlled item by the NRC and the former shows far greater efficiency if used in ultracapacitors. Fuel cells ONLY made sense on the Space Shuttle, where safely pressurized hydrogen and oxygen were always readily available.

please innovate and create a universal wheel or regulator which can convert solar and revert different energies into different energy fast or slow as needed to balance all energies..such as a regulator in solar panel will control the energy need of the panel but the surplus will revert to sun....like this.....the solar ray of sun will give continuous energy ,surplus will be in battery and without enviornment disturbance the surplus ray will return to the sun..actually the regulator or the wheel will be in fast or slow circular move as needed for the solar device like solar car..... kalki

Moto arzan (10 months ago)
Another thing to consider is It already takes 4.5kw of electricity to manufacture 1 gal of gasoline. Then it takes additional Kilowatts of electricity to distribute the gasoline thousands of km's all over the country. 1gal/3.7l of gasoline will propel a compact car about 50km...the 4.5kw used to manufacture that gasoline will already propel a EV about 30km. Therefor we only need a to manufacture a "NET" additional electric capacity of effectively 20km equivalent which is about 3kw. People will charge at night when it's cheaper. This will actually help the electrical grid and balance the system rather than have peaks and valleys. Example, you can not turn up and down the power of Nuclear power plants. They run at 100% day and night. That's why we sell off electricity at a "lose". When demand goes down at night and the nuclear plant is still running at 100% we have to dump it somewhere...why not charge our cars instead?

Loudmouth Libertarian (5 months ago)
Graphene is basically electrochemically neutral, and therefore useless as a battery. You are likely thinking about graphene based ultracapacitors. The cool thing about graphene is that it can be constructed to be either a conductor OR a resistor. The day they can mitigate capacitance bleed-off is the day ultracapacitors replace every battery on the planet.

Yes even Tesla EV range takes hit close to 50% in -36 C weather but it shouldn't stop you from buying an EV just make sure you buy the biggest battery. The longer range Tesla's works fine for 95% of people in the winter and really only means you need might have top up at a supercharger . The problem I think is for the non-tesla EV's that have to use those public chargers that are slow and kind of a joke.
Well the model 3 you don't have range mode but you just need to drive it for ten minutes or less to warm up the battery. quick acceleration and deceleration helps.

Moto arzan (10 months ago)
Volt has a gasoline motor which acts as an electricity "generator". The battery gets about 70km of range first before the engine kicks in. The "Bolt is all Electric and gets 385km for about 9mths of the year...but with electrical regenerative breaking some people can achieve as much as 500km. In the coldest of winter you will get about 250km range. I just bought a Bolt. Currently the wait time is about 9mth to a year. I was on a wait list for 9mths.

Loudmouth Libertarian (5 months ago)
Graphene-based capacitor banks can store energy harnessed from a multitude of sources, but will most like be solar or wind which would be generated on-site. (Think of solar panels on the roof of that thing at the gas station that shades you while you pump.) Also if we ever figure out 'hot superconductors', the driving range will automatically double or triple for the same total power... with the added benefit of eliminating heat production.
Alan Foster (11 months ago)
Most EVs utilized for daily driving will charge overnight, in a garage or via on-street chargers, when other demand for electricity is at its lowest.  Meanwhile, just as with any expanding business, those companies that build and run power lines will build more in order to be able to satisfy demand.  In the '50's, expansion into the suburbs required the construction of 100's of new gas stations.  Drivers did not pay to build them.

So there is a heat generation of about 1-4% of the energy, while gassoline has none. Now to use. So far energy is electic car, 99% gas 100% (well not really but for the sake of argument i will ignore gasoline degeneration). Then dischage, gassoline has 0 energy loss to be added into an engine, however that does take energy to move the gas and create the pressure, that is the energy of idle, i cant calculate that bwcause different engines have different resistances so i will also set this to 0. Electric cars have a discharge loss of 1% so the conversion is now, electric 98.1%, gasoline 100% Now the creation of energy into motor or engine torque. Electeic motors are 90% efficient on average, with the highest at 98%. We will use 90%. The best ICE has an efficency of 45% and it is turbocharged. So now we have, electric 88.2% and gas 45%. Oh no. Now transmission, electic has a single gear vs multiple, so more loss than the electric. So basically am electric car is minimum 2x as efficient than even the most efficient ICE. But a tesla has a 126 empg. Also. How the hell will electricity rates go up 10-20 times?? The more something is used and mass produced the cheeper it gets as other companies start selling the product. Gasoline is the prime example of that. So i have NO IDEA WHY THE HELL YOU THINK ANY OF THAT

3:50 "made of heavy metals like lithium" why does the media employ the scientifically illiterate to pontificate on stuff they do not understand ?

+Ed Maher Lol. You just invented that definition and it's completely ridiculous on every measure. You'er clueless if you compare Li to PB and Hg in terms of toxicity. May as well call H a heavy metal while you'er at it.

By definition lithium is a heavy metal because of its potential effect on the environment. But, not according to your high school Atomic chart where cadmium, lead and mercury are heavy metals. So, when used in a news report the term heavy metal is relative to the potential damage to the environment.

I was just going to say...lol. Typical ignorant reporter.
+Roger Reimer One-time CO2 production to make a battery beats (is far less than) CO2 production during all the use of the car.

Takes a lot of C02 to make a lithium battery a lot of C02 to recycle them becasue they have a very short life 300 to 500 charges amx then land fill.

Maybe she meant heavy the way stoners mean heavy, as in " Oh wow man, that's heavy ".

Its the heavymetal of the metals, it rocks!

Lithium is super light. It’s the density of the other materials and the number of batteries you need. Battery technology is going to move the same way memory in computers have.

"contain heavy metals like lithium" lol its the third lighted element after hydrogen and helium...nice one america hahahaha

Did you SERIOUSLY link to a *"Free-Energy Powered EV"* hoax website? One that actually promotes the FLAT EARTH delusion?!? If *ONLY* I could invent an electric car powered by the delusions of others... your post would have gotten me another 15,000 miles of driving range.

I like your videos, but the editing is not up to scratch. There is always a lot of repetition.
Loudmouth Libertarian (5 months ago)
He does that to fish for "total video time viewed", which is the only metric YouTube cares about. It's a dishonest ploy to get you to watch double the runtime for the same content.
