Tesla service vehicle filling up at a petrol station somewhere in the US
The picture above shows a vehicle owned by Tesla, one of the world's leading EV manufacturer, to support those EV's out in the field. The service vehicle, however, is powered by gasoline. That is very telling of the state of the EV technology at this juncture. It is still novel, still experimental and not able to operate autonomously. Which, in this author's humble opinion, makes it unsuitable for being the predominant technology. And that, naturally, makes any attempts to mandate this technology even more unacceptable than they would have been otherwise.
