Numerous issues have already been widely reported about Electric Vehicles (EVs) including

  • Battery fires (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
  • Battery recycling obstacles
  • Rapid battery degradation
  • Fires that are difficult to extinguish (see 1, 2, 3)
  • Higher costs (see 1, 2)
  • High levels of harmful electromagnetic radiation emissions (see 1, 2, 3)
  • Mechanical and operational problems (see 1, 2, 3, 4)

Someday all of these issues may be resolved. In the meantime, though, the U.S. government continues to strongly support EV ownership and another study has revealed significant drawbacks with that.
