How Do Electric Cars Get Cleaner With The New Year?
Page (1) of 1 - 12/28/14||
|If you’re buying a new gasoline vehicle, you’d best be happy with its emissions and efficiency today. Because as the vehicle ages, it’s not going to get much better than this. That’s actually not true with battery electric cars, like the Nissan Leaf or Tesla Model S. The EV you buy today will actually get significantly cleaner-running and more efficient (if you’re willing to take a step back) with each new year you own it. Why? Because while you don’t actually have a tailpipe with an electric car, some of the impact you have on the environment is transferred upstream, to the grid and the emissions associated with power generation. And the grid has the potential to get much cleaner.
