Re: Lithium Ion Is not the answer

Where have you got those figures from? I have seen this article in the Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/football/ng-interactive/2017/dec/25/how-green-are-electric-cars, and while it is obvious that electric is not The Solution, they do have the edge (see bottom of article, there are even references).

Now, I have been reading up on this as we are thinking of replacing our 14 year old Honda Accord with something smaller and have figured we can count the number of days/year an electric does not have enough range on one hand's fingers. And here in Portugal electricity is 50-60% from renewables.
