With our government intending to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by law in 2030, electric car sales (and hybrid petrol-electric cars) are on the increase. Even my local Tesco in the nearby town now has charging bays installed, and I have seen at least four electic cars plugged in not far from our house in Beetley.
I have written previously about the less-publicised facts around electric and hybrid vehicles. These involve child labour exploitation for cobalt mining in Africa, and the short life of the batteries that means there will be millions of them needing to be recycled (or dumped) in the next six to eight years.
Here is another article addressing that issue.
Think carefully before buying an electric vehicle.
It is not as ‘Green’ as you might think it is.
