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.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.Sections00:00 - Start01:21 - Exporting Pollution02:45 - China Dependency07:47 - Politics & EVs08:54 - Hatred for Tata, OLA12:55 - Charging Infra17:13 - Anti India20:01 - Why subsidies? 22:22 - Battery Performance22:22 - Battery Performance26:27 - EV Resale Value29:14 - Old Batteries30:14 - Charging Time32:29 - EV's are not fun!34:15 - Grid CapacitySources 1) Cell Manufacturing in Indiahttps://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/ril-unit-ola-among-companies-selected-for-pli-for-acc-battery-storage-122032401422_1.html1.5) Lithium Battery Recycling is happening in 2022 | Attero in India | Redwood Materialshttps://www.pluginindia.com/blogs/lithium-battery-recycling-is-happening-in-2022-attero-in-india-redwood-materials2) Oben EV Makes their own battery pack and motorshttps://www.pluginindia.com/blogs/tigor-ev-highway-drive-bengaluru-coimbatore-ooty-mysore 3) Tata AutoComp systems makes battery packs for Tata Motorshttps://tataautocomp.com/battery-pack/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiCNI3b7MaE3) Atmanirbhar Bharat, EV's and China https://youtu.be/7yrEWi11wrA4) OLA electric makes their own battery packshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aZZKbXH6V85) The Price of OIL - How Oil industry commits genocide for profitshttps://priceofoil.org/thepriceofoil/human-rights/6) Global worldwide oil demand by sector (% share, 2016)https://energypolicy.columbia.edu/sites/default/files/pictures/CGEP_Electric%20Vehicles%20and%20Their%20Impact%20on%20Oil%20Demand-Why%20Forecasts%20Differ.pdf7) Electricity Generation By Source Indiahttps://powermin.gov.in/en/content/power-sector-glance-all-indiaSupport the Show.Create a free website with SITE123.
