I'm surprised the CO2 content of manufacturing a vehicle is as high as 100g/km, but that is a useful additional data point.

Yes, one of you is right, the diesel co2 numbers I quoted were not well to wheel, which adds 15%.
So, 100 for the tank to wheel emissions, 15 well to tank, 100 manufacturing (for a Mondeo, which is probably rather larger and better specced than a typical EV) = 215 g /km.
So that graph, which I got off some greeny website by the way, http://shrinkthatfootprint.com/
shows that China India and Australia are all unwise places in which to run an EV powered by the grid, if you care about CO2, and the difference is pretty small even for the UK and USA.
As for the rest of the histrionics above, hilarious and immature are two adjectives that spring to mind. I don't get emotional about cars or about engineering, or physics. I prove that I'm right, or accept proof that I'm wrong. But whining and stamping your feet probably won't have much effect.
