The intellectual argument is that you’d get all angry about diesel and gas taxes....then realize battery cars had zero tax, and brilliance would occur on your part....to dump the silly gas/diesel car and buy a battery car for two to three times the cost of a gas/diesel car.
If you go and look at laws passed in Germany in 2017...they mandated that the last gas/diesel ‘new’ car to be sold....will occur in 2029, with 2030 being NO gas or diesel new cars allowed on the market place. Same crowd, demanding that you have no choice....you will have to go this route.
....... buy a battery car for two to three times the cost of a gas/diesel car.
And what will charge the battery, unicorn rainbow farts?
