Is it too late to make EVs truly sustainable?

Industry stakeholders weigh in on the chances to realise an electric future sustainably. By Megan Lampinen

Cobalt, lithium and rare earth elements have been linked to serious environmental problems and the process of extracting some of these metals from their ores can produce harmful pollutants.
