even though EVs play a huge role in transforming our mobility to low carbon or through energy sources. The underlying issue is "are EVs practically sustainable?" The most important component of an EV vehicle is lithium and lithium is mined. Mining is never a sustainable culture and transforming mining sectors is a whole lot of process which needs more innovative ideas -- which in my opinion it's close to possibility to make mining sustainable. Therefore, although EVs play a major role in transforming into clean energy mobility solution -- underlying fact is it's not! One more thing -- there is a huge possibility and speculations going on with the supply of lithium in the long-term and many organizations/countries are trying to grab lithium mining spots. So, if supply of lithium becomes an issue, then we may need to shift to other energy source as the prices gets skyrocketed. --- maybe hydrogen!!! never know!
