    Sure, but if we want the typical consumer to choose an EV over an ICE then it would need to be cheaper.

      You’re stating a different point that I’m making. I’m consistently saying “I’m not talking about price”, then you go back to price. The initial OP stated that the car obsession is showing it’s wasteful, because it consumes a ton of resources. Someone corrected the OPs understanding of the average efficiency of electric cars. I provided the EPA agreed-upon conversion of MPG -> MPGe. You then decided that efficiency = cost. It’s not.

      Yes, for most use-cases an electric car will be cheaper; you can read about that here. There are some use-cases today where it won’t be. But it wasn’t the point of my post. Whether or not it’s always cheaper, using an EV Escalade vs a gas Escalade will always be more efficient.
