Electric cars are definitely on the rise in terms of production and popularity amongst customers. What are your thoughts on them? Are you planning to get one or maybe you already have one?

The idea of electric cars is amazing for me especially when you look at what Tesla has done. Although, I will miss the sound of a proper engine when we eventually get rid of all traditional cars at some point in the future.

Environmentally it's better so I can't help but be in favor. I don't own a license to drive. But if I ever choose to learn, I'd definitely go all the way to an Electric.

I guess I'm one of those guys, but I hope we don't get rid of the engine as we know it. Unless there is some crazy huge improvement in torque and horsepower with Electric engines, they'll never be able to do what larger vehicles (namely diesels) can do.
Don't get me wrong, though, I'm all for the amazing advancements in technology and find it fascinating humans fabricated these advancements.

The cost of production and environmental impact of mining the materials needed to make the batteries for these cars (for now) outweighs the benefits of driving one. I would love to have one for the fact that I wouldn't have to buy gas (pars @ $1.30/L where I am) but I have a relatively short commute and have heard that it's not good to drive them in lots of short bursts.

Personally, I would like to see Hydrogen combustion engines become more mainstream. They're less environmentally damaging and you can produce your own fuel. Add solar energy, water conservation/purification and a battery generator to your house and you're practically off grid baby. Sustainable green living is within our reach, we just need to advocate for it.

It would need to be advocated for, yes. However, here in the states, having the entire grid on renewable energy under the current infrastructure is not possible. The way our grid is set up and designed cannot run that way. The only way it would be feasible is if the grid were broken up into the regions that already exist in the power industry, and maybe a bit further. Renewables are much better the smaller the scale is. But, they’re not perfect and still require a lot of input for their relatively small output.
