    This has more to do with Germany suiciding itself with its energy policy than the technical viability of electric cars under sane circumstances.

      Always do the opposite of what Germany/German companies are doing and success is guaranteed. I don't think there is a single project in the last 30 years that we haven't catastrophically fricked up.

      So called "rare" earths are not rare at all.
      They are just labor intensive to extract. That's why China is the biggest exporter of them: cheap labor.

        The problem isn't labor, it's that extraction of them is so destructive to the environment it's been banned in practically the entire rest of the world. The whole concept of electrification is based on moving global warming out of the west and into China (and eventually Africa and/or SEA). That's why it's been doomed to fail from the start.

        it's not common. there's only certain amount of places on earth that have large deposits of it. you can find lithium in all kinds of places but you'll find way less of it and extracting it becomes much more costly and complicated. this is the problem a lot of these countries face. not that it matters right now, there's no shortage of lithium and the price is low, and sometimes it's too low to bother mining it. at a certain price it's just not worth digging out of the ground and processing. they're all waiting on this electric ev boom so they can turn their mining claims into money.

      Batteries are a dead end technology. The real future is roads that can power cars through wireless induction electricity through the ground.

        The real future is artificial gasoline synthesized from ocean water and energy-dense nuclear power. This is carbon neutral because every atom of carbon released from burning the artificial gasoline is an atom of carbon removed from the environment during the creation process. The US military is already balls deep in researching this technology because for one it's a means to energy independence (imagine an aircraft carrier that doesn't need to visit a port to stock up on jet fuel) and for two the jet fuel you can produce from this is higher quality than jet fuel produced from oil. Once the tech is mature we'll see plants producing artificial gasoline for civilians at dirt cheap costs and we'll be carbon neutral without having to change a damn thing -- your grandma's 1980s toyota shitbox will be just as carbon neutral as a fancy EV that just rolled off the show floor.

      doesn't have shit. biggest project i read about recently is trying to turn some lake in bumfrick usa into a lithium mine by using some experimental and costly extraction method because usa doesn't have very big lithium supplies. they heavily rely on countries like australia and china.

          that's the one i was talking about. enormous but extracting it isn't a simple affair.

          People get stuck without gas all the time in Australia too. There is no perfect.

          If you don't have a lot of mileage and/or WFH, solar is very cheap charging in Australia (feed in is shit, so use it or loose it).

          sure, if you're fricking moronic. there's no shortage of service stations in between cities. it only gets life threatening further away from the coast you get.
          >, solar is very cheap charging in Australia
          during the day it is. if you have to charge it during nightime off of mains then your electric bill will rape your ass so hard that you'll be wearing adult diapers for a month.

    EVs are about USA trying to outcompete European and Japanese car manufacturers.
    If they made sense we would always be driving them - electric cars predate internal combustion cars.

      in australia it's been a joke. people doing road trips in their tesla or some shit, driving from city to city and finding charging stations that didn't work, queues to use the chargers that last hours, having to charge multiple times along the way. there's no way this forced meme can continue when nobody gives a shit. a simple trip from melbourne to sydney added many hours onto the travel time compared to just taking a normal fricking car. nobody is going to tolerate this for a moment.

      the point is that it's nothing more than marketing to sell more garbage products. this time they can sell the car they've always dreamed of: completely locked down, nobody can fix it and replacement battery packs that cost so much money that it's cheaper to write off the car as scrap and get a new one. these are the people claiming they're trying to help save the planet, by opening up enormous mining pits and piles of written off cars less than 15 years old.
