How many charges does a EV battery take. Does the pickup go to the junk yard after the battery dies? How much is a replacement battery? Is it even able to be changed?? I know the batteries do not recycle well either.

Which in the real world means about 100 miles. If you recharge 100 kw ( about 80%) every 100 miles that's the equivalent in gas burner terms of about 3.5 mpg. and about 45 minutes down time "if" you're first in line.
This math does not appear correct to me. Using your assumptions and US average for gallon of unleaded, wouldn’t the math be as follows?

(100 miles)x(3.9 $/gal)/[(0.39 $/kw)x(100 kw)] = 10 mpg

Actually I stand corrected, you're right, thanks.

Looking into the lifespan of electric cars its by far much more than most cars. The electric motors will last much longer than most gas or diesel engines. The batteries are expected to last at least 300k miles. Found this article. https://getoptiwatt.com/blog/how-lon...ry-really-last

With that being said and the complete lack of recharging stations and the strong reliance on power infrastructure that is already maxed out in many locations... yeah with current technology it just does not seem sustainable... We need a major breakthrough, the fusion info in recent days might actually be what is needed.
