EVs ‘are not enough’: Polestar and Rivian urge more drastic climate action
Eliminating tailpipe emissions is just half the battle.
Which is interesting given Rivian's massive trucks and SUVs.
"Despite a massive rollout of new EVs and hybrids in the coming years, the global automotive industry is still “far off track”
on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in a way that can meet targets set by the Paris agreement...
Still, most automakers are leading their EV rollouts with large SUVs and trucks — in part because their higher price tags
help finance the EV revolution — even though those vehicles are less environmentally friendly due to their greater charging
needs and additional resources required for production."
I know: this article dates from February this year... Still, it has validity IMO.
Question is: what would be viable alternatives?
