Lifecycle GHG assessment is not a new thing, and itís been part of the calculus of vehicle types for a long while. Very same dudeís data shows that thereís a net benefit under most assumptions at ~60-80,000 km of usage.

Make the underlying electricity cleaner (which it is doing constantly) or lower the CO2 cost for creating the battery and the curves cross even earlier.

I also donít see an accounting of the GHG cost of getting crude out of Saudi Arabia, shipping it across the world for refinement, then shipping the finished product to oneís local gas station. Thatís a very energy and water intensive process. Maybe I missed it.
