Hybrid vehicles

The problem with electric cars is making them pollutes too much, people don't want to buy them unless they can go 300 to 400 miles or some nonsense. Then when you put a 400 mile battery in an electric car the pollution created mostly because of the battery is off the charts.
There's no way to make more than about 3% of new vehicles as electronic because there's not enough battery materials. And we will be stuck at 3 or 4% as more of these 300+ mile cars become the norm.
The correct answer should have been "hybrids", that lavish "400 mile battery" could have made batteries for at least 50 hybrid cars.

Here is the problem, way over simplified and misrepresented.

Its not misrepresented it's a dam lie and that's all there is to it.

Actually it looks more like this:

A better representation where the EV market is and where it's going.

You may be thinking right about now, this has just been a hit piece on electric vehicles and I don't see any about hybrids.

This is what they don't want people to know.

What happens when you use a little bit of poorly thought out renewable power backed by fossil fuels to run an electric vehicle vs. A gas burner with a little battery.
The one thing electric vehicles are excellent at is relocating pollution. Really that's what the top 7 cities with the worst air pollution in the US, allllll in California of course need and should to use to simply export the pollution to AZ or NV.

There's more I'm just having a hard time uploading pictures because of my connection.
