Electric Vehicles: Cleanest Automobiles Available Today and Even Cleaner Tomorrow
Them green naysayers have been proven wrong now on so many occasions that it’s getting to the point where their side of the story no longer holds any merit.
Here, we prove them wrong again.
We’re basically at the point of being done arguing, so we’ll let the facts speak for themselves.
The various graphics presented here are taken straight from the EPA’s “Beyond Tailpipe Emissions Calculator.”
It’s not as if the EPA slung this calculator together overnight. This is the result of years of research conducted by the EPA and other outside agencies. The results tell the story: EVs are clean.
The question of whether or not electric vehicles are cleaner than hybrids and the average new automobile is laid to rest as the EPA says that, even when using today’s average American electricity mix of natural gas, coal, nuclear, hydro, wind, geothermal, and solar, an electric vehicle, on average, emits half the amount of harmful CO2 per mile as the average new automobile.
There’s no need to take our word for it. Simply head over to the EPA’s calculator linked above and type in your zip code…Let us know the results in Comments below.
Note: As America’s electricity mix continues to get cleaner, EVs get cleaner, too.
- Annual Well-to-Wheel Emissions By State Shows Growing Strength Of EV Usage
- How Much Cleaner EVs Are Over Gas Depends On Country/Electricity Source
- Bill Gates is Wrong About Electric Vehicles
- Survey: If Electricity Came Only From Renewable Energy Sources, Then Electric Vehicle Sales Would Surge by 23%
