Yes, electric vehicles are going to be the wave of the future! You gotta be kidding me, what many never take into account is the amount of toxic waste that will be generated once these electric vehicles reach their end of their life in 15 to 20 years. Where do you dispose of the batteries and electric motors? While they may not emit the "green house gases" that a real car emits, they will still create a toxic waste scenario in the future.

Don't Panic! Most of the car is recyclable...


The motors are mostly copper wiring. Very recyclable.
