This situation is the perfect example of what EVs mean. Are they really as clean as they looks? No. Of course, depends of which is the sourse of the electricity in each locallity, but in many places, the EVs are impulsed by coal, diesel or oil powerplants that are the sources of the electricity.

I really don’t understand the Tesla hate. Finally an American company threatening the German automotive stranglehold in the top end and everyone has to be a hater.
