Re: BOLLOXS

Can someone please discuss how using fucking great batteries makes this dick embiggening fad carbon nuetral ?

I don't think it's about carbon so much as it is about local air quality in congested urban areas.

Because the vehicle is not blowing out poisonous gas right in the vicinity of lots of human lungs.

And at the traffic speeds where this is most important, tyre wear is minimal and regenerative brakes are less abrasive so particulates are not part of the problem.
