Every time we talk about the electric car we think of things like the environment, trees, forests, clean transportation, clean air or animals. Advertising and politicians have ensured that every time the electric car comes up we always bring up its more positive side.

But is that really the whole story of the electric car? In this video we tell you about the other side, the more economically, socially and environmentally disturbing facets that are fueling the energy transition and the take-off of the electric car. By the way, did you know that the transition to the electric car may boost China’s influence and our dependence?
