We shouldn't be destroying the planet that we live on. So what is the alternative to gas cars? Many have looked toward electric cars for the answer. Why are they so beneficial on all levels? Electric cars produce fewer green house gases than gas cars. Electricity is made by coal-burning plants, or other plants that dot produce greenhouse gases. Even if the electricity was produced by a coal-burning plant, electric cars would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 22 percent when compared to gas cars. According to Sherry Boschert, author of Plug-in Hybrids: The Cars that Will Recharge America, electric cars would decrease the amount of smog-forming pollutants produced by gas cars by as much as 32 to 99 percent. Electric cars are the solution to saving the environment from more global warming damage.
Electric cars emit less Co2 than gasoline and hybrid cars.
Not only are electric cars beneficial to the environment, but they are beneficial for the owner.
- Electric cars are way cheaper, a gas car is about $2,100 a year in fuel costs to operate your vehicle, while an electric car is only $455.
- Electric cars are low maintenance, there is no need to lubricate the engines, oil changes, or to send it in to the local service station.
- In addition, electric cars have a quiet motor, with immediate twerk: 100% torque at zero rpm. Electric motors are capable of providing smooth drive with higher acceleration over longer distances.
- Lastly, electric cars are insanely fast. The Tesla Model S P85D has more than enough power to reach 200 MPH, but it is electronically limited to just 155. Electric cars also are luxurious, safe, and have advanced technology.
Electric cars have been becoming increasing popular. They are said to overpower gas cars in the future. There are tons of companies racing to produce the electric cars. The environmental impact of an electric car is close to zero, reducing your carbon footprint. Electric cars are the solution to gas car pollution.
