    Another Marxist Dream bites the dust.

    But let’s assume there are enough ressources for batteries and that those batteries could be recharged in 30 minutes.

    How on earth can an electric grid provide the insane quantities of energy when 1 million fast loading electric vehicles need to be loaded at the same time.
    California has 30 mio motorized vehicles.If those have all electric batteries,
    and most of them have to be charged before or after work.

    The number of panels,windfarms would be as expensive and insane as the grid that has to be built to distribute the necessary.
    And nothing of the necessary supermassive infrastructure can be built or mined without reliable cheap energy.

      Also assuming that batteries once built never need to be replaced which even for the finest quality batteries is clearly not the case. And what of the after market? Here’s what is going to happen. It is only the extremely rich who can afford brand new electric vehicles. They will own them successfully for 5 to 7 years and then sell them to poorer people who cant afford new. The poorer people will be walking into time bombs with the batteries in these second hand vehicles about to expire. When this happens, the poor will not be able to afford brand new genuine supplied batteries but will be forced into lesser quality “after market” replacements. These poorer quality batteries might be 30% cheaper but will still be expensive but have only 50 or 60% of the life expectancy of a genuine part. The poor will be trapped in an ever spiraling debt trap by these vehicles.

    Google suggests that EVs are about 4-5% of the market. So the market must expand by 25x in the next few years according to lawmakers. That will make Rivian’s losses about $170 Billion per year soon. And Rivian is just one small player in the market. Where are all the deep pocketed shareholders that are going to generously fund this shortfall?

    The reality of massive electric vehicles will not occur until some short of “hot rail” is installed that allows charging while driving. In short, the roads and the rails were built long before cars and trains became primary mechanical transportation methods.
