How green is your EV?

This is a question I am glad to see in the media. First off this is a long article and I will post a few quotes and a pictorial. What do we really know about the life cycle of the electric vehicle?

Re: California Bill Drops $3 Billion EV Rebate Plan & Switches To Studies

I would feel better about decisions like this if we knew exactly what was being studied. To just study a generic topic seems like a waste of money as well

Re: Subsidizing electric cars is inefficient and costly, report says

Yes I agree it is but with price tags of 40 + thousand something has to be done to get them on the road. The Chevy Bolt proved they can be done cheaper but until the common Joe can afford one some type of financial relief has to happen or else only the rich can buy them

Re: Waymo Orders 500 More Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids For Free Rides

I'm just not sold on it yet. Plus I have a vehicle because I want to drive it. If I didn't want to drive I would take a taxi or bus or another form of transportation where someone else is responsible for the driving.
