RESOLVED: The Toyota Prius IS NOT a resilient car

The Toyota Prius, and electric cars in general, are NOT resilient.

Some major reasons why:

  1. Global manufacture.  Exotic materials.
  2. Replacement and repair.  Cost is high and it requires complex methods/parts.
  3. Conditional:  If electricity isn’t produced locally, there is a dependence on a remote power source.

Phi Beta Iota:  This is a good example of “true cost” economics that is not taught in business schools, schools of public administration, or any form of government.  “True cost” and “360 degree cradle to grave” analytics is what a mature intelligence community should be pioneering.
