Show Notes Chapter Markers

A random YouTuber, put out a video - ‘Here is why Electric Cars Are Not the Future’ and in addition there is another video which came out some time ago by a reputed reviewer of ICE cars.

Many of you wrote to us asking us to make a reaction video. So we checked it out and the entire video has a lot of incorrect information with no references - Anyone that doesn't provide authentic references that you can verify yourself, is a big suspect in our opinion.

Also the guy seems to have a visceral hatred towards Electric Vehicles. When you are filled with so much hatred, you can never be objective.

Hopefully the facts shared in this video may help you see things in a different light and help you think differently. 
If you think EV’s are bad, don't watch this video. If you think we need to stop using petroleum, you won't like this video. Petroleum unfortunately will be there for sometime.  
There are people who enjoy learning things that they were not aware of or things that challenged their notion, you will find this interesting. 
If you like to stay in the bubble and get confirmation bias then stay away from this video. This is not for you.

Ultimately we hope you can understand why electric vehicles are far superior compared to pollution vehicles and why it's important to phase out petrol and diesel for India’s betterment and wellbeing.
