MS Dhoni Talks About EVs

This post has been shared by lightorium on Instagram. It captures a snippet of an interview where MS Dhoni was having a conversation regarding the future of EVs. He is heard saying that EVs are not ‘the solution’. Elucidating it further, he mentions that it is not the EVs that are important but the fact that where the electricity to power the EVs comes from.

However, if we focus on developing renewable sources of generating electricity, that will be the actual solution. At the moment, one might think that EVs don’t cause any tailpipe emissions, so they must be better for the environment. However, that is just one aspect of the entire process. They need charging which makes it important to realise where the electricity is coming from. If we are still using coal to produce electricity and charge EVs from that, then the actual positive impact on the environment is not significant.
