  • In terms of safety, gas powered is a lot safer than electric vehicles. Batteries catch fire and explode a lot easier. In terms of sustainability, electric seems more sustainable, but I would like to see a full supply chain footprint analysis. There is no use for old batteries, which are very toxic. And producing batteries has heavy impacts. That said, fossil fuel is the industry with heaviest carbon emission in the World. So I want more data...
