Smudge, EVs show a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions across the full life cycle and 80% reduction for driving in NZ.

There will be other issues with Lithium mining no doubt but the CO2 emissions stack up.  The coming big thing will be mining deep sea nodules for ores .  This too will have issues to consider (as does any extractive process).

Ohhh I'm not saying that EV's are perfect and I'm pretty sure there are marketing plays on both sides. Be good to see a balance point of view but that's not an easy thing to find. One day there will be a law that says media has to tell the truth, main stream and alternative media that is. Pretty sure alternative media tells more lies but yeah

This is some thing I read recently, but earlier in the article it suggested what is happening to ev and hybrid batteries is the are being used at off grid houses. Much lower current draw so the battery will be more usable.
Just remember lithium is only mined once then recycled many times, that's the aim at least.
. In fact I've spoken to the owner of a battery recycling company in Auckland who stated they can recycle a minimum of 95% and up to 99% of an EV battery, and that they're already set up to do so. However they've not been able to recycle any EV batteries yet, as they haven't been able to get any, in other words there are no EV batteries that need recycling yet.

Have you been on the juice again smudge?  Your Gov has paid the media off to ensure they don't tell the truth.  But that's got nothing to do with a tow wagon, sorry.

This is why BEV is unlikely to be the solution for heavier vehicles basic physics.

For light weight commuter cars around town yes for anything else not so much.

Hydrogen anyone?
