"The production of lithium through evaporation ponds uses a lot of water - around 21 million litres per day. Approximately 2.2 million litres of water is needed to produce one ton of lithium."

screw that water ... just poison it because i'm saving the Earf with battery cars!

That consumption INCREASES the more you drive an i.c.e car as they literally are wearing out everytime you even start the engine. E.V.s by comparison after 2 years break even in the consumption required to build them.and charge them because they arr more efficiwnt over time and arent consuming oil and gas or putting c02 into the sky while driving FACT. I.C.E is just a constant INCREASING feedback loop.of wasted energy. So again to sum it up:

Holy crap you really know nothing

The vast majority of co2 is absorbed and released by the ocean

Nobody is waiting for it to break down

Stop talking
You do more damage to EV credibility each time you talk

Related/unrelated to the STi.
Cusco apparently built a 22b clone. Looks good to me, definitely wouldn't kick it out of my garage.

interesting observation, we wait to see if a wrx ts graces our shores here in the US. We just don't know at this point.

Perhaps that's the STI and proof it actually existed...

Yea, the bumper is clearly painted more than the VB WRX, and the bumper styling is a mix of VA 15-17 vents, with the VB fog lights.

It's definitely not the same and resembles the facelift VA STI. It also has a lower lip. It's only missing the STI badge in the grill.
