Not impressed by the high cost in environmental damage and destruction of social habitat. This event was disastrous for cyclists and pedestrians, cutting off central parts of the city, parks and other social and environmentally important areas, for weeks, at the height of summer. If e vehicles don't differentiate from regular vehicles, their disadvantages outweigh the benefits, even with improvements to the energy/contamination. In fact, electricity is not produced very cleanly in Chile to begin with, so even that benefit is questionable.
