Electric vehicles Better for the environment

Electric vehicles Better for the environment

The electric car (EV) is a relatively new concept in the world of the automotive industry.
Cars produce a lot of carbon emissions that are ejected into our natural atmosphere, leaving us vulnerable to things like pollution and greenhouse gases. By buying an electric car, you can also receive government subsidies for being environmentally conscious. EV's get their power from rechargeable batteries installed inside the car. These batteries are not only used to power the car but also used for the functioning of lights and wipers.


Electric Cars' Carbon Emissions Around the Globe

The carbon emissions of grid powered electric cars in countries with coal based generation are no different to average petrol vehicles, while in countries with low carbon electricity they are less than half those of modern hybrids.

It is quite well understood that electric cars have the potential to reduce carbon emissions, but important to realize this potential is dependent on the type of electricity that charges the battery. Given that the vast majority of power generation around the world is grid-tied, where a car is charged plays a large role in determining its carbon emissions.
