Putin expresses scepticism regarding electric cars
The Russian president doesn't think that EV cars are not as ecological as one might think.
During a discussion at the Valdai Discussion Club think thank, Putin told a foreign journalist that in his opinion, electric cars are not the way foward. For example, he pointed out the non-ecological way in which electricity for cars is produced.
According to Putin, it would be a better alternative if in Russia the people used cars powered by natural gas, instead of electric cars, since Russia is one of the biggest natural gas producers in the world.
The president also pointed out that he had been testing several electric cars - although he refused to name any of them - and that he "didn't feel any difference" between the EVs and the normal ICE cars.
Although I do not deny that electric cars and even hydrogen cars are not without their flaws when it comes to how their fuel is produced, as of now I think they are the best and most reliable alternative fuel vehicles available on the market.
