Everything on Earth could be considered a "limited resource" including the (hazardous) metals/materials used to make the batteries that go into those electric cars.

Where do you think that stuff comes from?
the mining for the rare earth elements for these vehicles is one of the most hazardous and ruinous things being done to the planet. google it.
