A novel way to estimate car longevity shows that electric vehicles' life mileage is increasing fast

Viet Nguyen-Tien and Robert Elliot, with fellow authors, developed a way to estimate the lifespans of various vehicles on British roads and their implications for consumer choices and environmental impact.
