I'm sure the studies that continuously show EVs are "better for humans" (whatever that means) are funded by companies who profit from EV sales.
EVs certainly have their place, but anyone who argues only for/against them is ignorant about the whole ecosystem of them. ICE cars have measurable tailpipe emissions, which makes them an easy target for the EPA. It sounds nice to say "we eliminated all tailpipe emissions and our air is cleaner", which would be true for our cities if they were all EV, but the pollution just goes elsewhere, to where the lithium mines are. Lithium mining is a very water intensive dirty process, and many, many mines (I think 35 a year was the figure I read) would need to be built to support the batteries needed for the projected EV production by some of these governments banning ICEs.
Plug-in hybrids make the most sense.
