Report: Electric Vehicles Best Option in Most of U.S.

A new Union of Concerned Scientists report shows that due to considerable gains made in cleaning the electric grid and in producing electric vehicles more efficiently, EVs are the environmentally sensible choice. The UCS report, “Cleaner Cars from Cradle to Grave (2015),” considers three variables in its evaluation of lifecycle carbon emissions that includes “vehicle production, operation, and disposal”:
Regional electricity grids across the United States based on the global warming emissions produced from electricity generation,
Emissions generated by charging an EV,
Emissions produced by gasoline-powered vehicles.
