That seemed like a fairly even assessment of the situation to me. He states his assumptions and why he's made them, he's given sources for his figures. He front loaded the EV in favour of the ICE. He showed that depending on where in the US you are, the results vary. Not sure what else he could do to be fairer in a short video.
The big thing to take away from the video is knowing where your electricity comes from. If you're buying "coal electricity" and you change your car regularly, then you're doing no good. If you buy "renewable electricity" and/or you change your car infrequently, then you can be beneficial in terms of emissions reductions. It was interesting as a non-US resident to see that you can see state-by-state what your electricity generation mix is. That's cool and very useful in this discussion and any decision made as to vehicle choice/use.
Bear in mind also that he's only looking at CO2. The big issue these days is not CO2 but urban air quality. Air quality focusses on NOx and particulates (PM10, for example) along with some other pollutants. An electric car wins that argument hands down every time because it doesn't generate those pollutants in the urban environment.
Of course, there will be those for whom the ability to hop in the car and do a several hundred miles in a day is a deal breaker. But the majority of people don't do that, they commute locally and do about 30 miles a day in the US (https://newsroom.aaa.com/2015/04/new-st ... sts-drive/
). That's easy EV territory right there. Indeed, for increasing numbers of EVs, you could do more than a couple of days between charges if required.
I used to do 30,000 miles a year - a commute of 50 miles each way plus up to 50 miles a day for work during the day. That was just about possible with an EV at the time so long as I could access the charge point in the car park. Of course, that wouldn't always be possible which made it a no go for me, sadly. The biggest issue I noticed with the charge points, is that some EV owners seem to think that "electric vehicles only" markings meant they could use the space just to park - they wouldn't be charging, just parking! Relatively small changes to infrastructure would make that sort of commute/use mix a reality for many people.
I'm a bit of a hypocrite as I don't have an EV even though I think they're "a good thing". I currently have a diesel Range Rover - just about the worst alternative in the eyes of many!
Now, I use the RR for towing and it goes off road so it isn't just a "Chelsea Tractor" (UK insult for 4x4s that just drive on the roads). EVs don't really do towing yet and certainly not the 2.5t I need for the horse trailer. To counter my hypocrisy, I do intend to get an EV once my newly formed company is doing well enough. I now work from home and my daily use is less than before - still often over 100 miles a day but within current EV ranges. Most of that is rural driving so my current vehicle isn't amking the urban air any worse (he says, trying to excuse his vehicle choices!
