Think twice before you buy a new electric car.

If you really want to go green then do your research and think twice before you buy a electric car. See below stats.

The batteries in an electric car weigh about 500 kg. To make a car battery of this type, you need to process 10 tons of salt for the required lithium, 15 tons of ore for the required cobalt, two tons of ore to get enough nickel and 12 tons of copper ore. In total, you have to process 200 tons of soil to make a single battery.

As if that wasn't enough, this pollutes more than a petrol/diesel car does in 20 years of normal consumption.
