Electric Car Benefits
- Lower operational costs – The estimated cost of electricity needed to power a PEV is equivalent to or less than one dollar per gallon of gasoline.
- Lower maintenance costs – PEVs have fewer moving parts than gas-powered vehicles.
- Zero operating emissions – The emissions associated with PEVs come from power plants generating electricity to charge the batteries, not from tailpipe emissions.
- Overall reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions – CO2 is the principal gas associated with global warming.
- Reduced pollution to oceans, rivers and ground water – Decreased use of petroleum gasoline and motor oil means fewer spills.
- Relief from urban noise pollution – Electric motors are quiet as well as clean
- Cleaner air – They help reduce fossil fuel emissions, such as CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
