Just plain stupid conclusion regarding co2 for the I-Pace.
Hmm, is that something of an overreaction? IIRC the point being made was the contrast between running an EV such as an I-Pace in France (with CO2 equivalent @15g/100km) where presumably much/most of the generation is nuclear with that in Poland where most generation seems to be coal (maybe lignite still?) to give the 150 figure.
That strikes me as a perfectly valid point - how effective an EV is in environmental terms (if that's what's important to you, rather than eg acceleration or driving characteristics) will depend hugely on how electricity is generated in your home country. Hopefully Poland will become greener sooner rather than later, but right now Poland might not be a prime market for EVs, compared to eg France, UK, Norway etc.
Your question is precisely what is consistently failed to be addressed.
The video content is trying to address that but there are still to many ifs and buts.
The one good thing about an EV is that its local air pollution is vastly reduced, its actual air pollution is at the electricity generation source where systems sould be in place to minimise atmospheric emissions.
I would love to see the full lifecycle emissions of an EV compared to an equivalent ICE vehicle.
That said the whole EV ethos is to reduce pollution in our towns and cities
