Sory to say this guys, but it is desperating to contiunue reading this sort of things, even on F1T
Those biased reports claiming electricity emissions are similar to ICE when it comes from carbon plants
have done so much damage... If you read it properly, they say that, even with electricity coming from a carbon plant, EVs pollute a bit less, or a bit more, that´s irrelevant, the main thing is they´re similar even with 100% dirty electricity!!! And that is an unreal scenario on any country except India and few others. None in first world for sure
But what people keep repeating is, on countries with almost half of its electricity production coming from emissions free sources, EVs are not worth

eg replacing diesel ICE use at 35% efficiency well-to-wheel with mainly fossil-fuel electricity at 40% efficiency w-t-w
Sorry Tommy but that´s wrong
In 2019 the electricity sector's grid supply for the United Kingdom came from 43% fossil fuelled power (almost all from natural gas), 48.5% zero-carbon power (including 16.8% nuclear power and 26.5% from wind, solar and hydroelectricity)

@Tommy: Not every country has the same energy mix and policies as UK. In many places anything electrical automatically “outgreens” anything fossil even today.
Yes, in many, including the UK, today.

Exactly. BEVs bought today aren’t necessarily bringing an immediate reduction in emissions but they act as seed to demonstrate the feasibility, viability, in the future.
But they´re indeed bringing an immediate reduction in emissions, even today, no need to wait.
The sad thing is, even people who defend EVs keep repetaing these lies some petrol companies managed to publish through biased reports. They know how to manipulate us all masterfully
