In a groundbreaking study released by the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), new data unveils the hidden financial and environmental costs associated with electric vehicles (EVs), casting doubt on their purported eco-friendliness.

The study goes against the prevailing narrative that electric cars are a ‘silver bullet’ for combating climate change. It exposes the steep costs of EV batteries, which not only have a short lifespan but are also manufactured through processes that are far from environmentally friendly.

One of the study’s key findings indicates that the cost per mile of electric vehicles is actually higher when considering the production and disposal of batteries. Furthermore, the study illustrates how the electrical grid would need massive and costly overhauls to accommodate a significant increase in electric vehicles.

The study also examined the raw materials needed for battery production, such as cobalt and lithium, which must be mined, often in conditions that violate human rights and labor laws. This adds a moral dilemma to the supposed ethical choice of purchasing an electric vehicle.

The report has ignited debate among policymakers and the general public, raising questions about whether the rush towards electric vehicles is based on sound science and ethical considerations or merely a trend fueled by emotional and political arguments.

By putting complex numbers against the romanticized view of electric vehicles, the TPPF study serves as a reality check for policymakers and consumers alike, urging a more cautious and comprehensive approach to the transition to electric cars.
