We all know by now that electric cars are great for the environment for their lack of emissions, but a surprising new study has found that, at least on the East Coast, electric vehicles actually create more air pollution than regular gas-powered cars. The study compared the air pollution created by gas and electric cars by looking at county-level statistics of total pollution. Researchers found very contrasting results between the West and East Coast.
