I just came across this graph in todays The Pioneer newsletter

I just came across this graph in todays The Pioneer newsletter: do you see the obvious mistake in this comparison?



Yes: gas can be burned only once compared to a battery that provides "range" over and over again.



What they should have done: somehow include the range driven into the water consumption.



E.g.:


- a battery that drives 200.000km takes 500l of water to be produced = 0.0025l / km driven


- a gas car uses 80l of gas for 600km. Producing this gas costs 240l of water. 240l / 600km = 0,4l / km driven



So there is no case at all for the hypothesis that EV are wasting water.



And: there are two more methodological errors in this graph.



I wonder: is this just stupidness on the side of The Pioneer or are they trying to make a case against EVs?
