@MrG - you haven't really read any of these myth-debunking links posted in this thread alone, have you? Well, may I warmly refer you to them... CS - likewise, most journeys are short, commuting and even if the diesel particles alone were to vanish - that would be quite something. But the EVs nowadays are even better and they are getting better, so stop trolling for no reason, with no argument to be seen.... If you have an actual argument, backed up by independent analysts etc. - let's see it... We all want to inform ourselves properly, that much goes without saying!
