given battery recycling not happenign mass scale + batery degradation especially in less moderate temp, user cost vs convience (lightweightedness, range anxiety), lifetime emissions, future potential for combustion fuel: (on youtube for ex) ingocar freepiston, linear electric combustion freepiston generator, obrist or nissan E power as in note nismo. battery can be for everyday use (or just minimal battery) plus these such things so no range anxiety and effeincy/weight/battery recycling cost penalty of big battery car.
