The BMW electric scoot coming out next year looks pretty good other than the price, but that's the norm with BMW. It wouldn't make me swap my 650 for it, but it's interesting.
And that's sort of the point. A BEV is as clean as its supporting power grid, which means that it's going to be improving over time as renewables displace fossil fuels. An ICE vehicle will always be as "dirty" as it was when new.Last year only 1.8% of electric in U.K. came from coal. 0% in Norway....
(edit: I’m also pretty sure I read coal dropped below renewables in the US in 2020 or before)
Hydrogen as a vehicle fuel isn't "fuel" per se, it's an energy storage medium like batteries. This is because it takes more energy to create liquid hydrogen than is given off when it's burned.Hydrogen or Methane Fuel cells may be the answer but the feeding infrastructure needs to be UPGRADED BIG TIME!!!
