Unclean At Any Speed?


Website Spectrum IEEE reports in an article titled, "Unclean At Any Speed":

Electric cars don’t solve the automobile’s environmental problems

Editor note: I'm personally a big fan of electric cars, but what's known as "range anxiety" is a huge issue.

Environmental impact isn't even on the radar for me when I make my next car purchase.

Factors will be:

• The impact on my wallet

• The impact on quality of the driving experience

• Quality of the build of the car.

Right now, only one manufacturer makes a quality all-electric vehicle - Tesla, with it's Model S. The Tesla Model S gets 280 miles to the charge.

Many gasoline cars get 40+ miles to the gallon nowadays. The promise of gasoline cars getting 75-100mpg is right around the corner. Even at $4.00 a gallon / 100mpg cars are easier on the wallet than charging an electric car - not to mention that you could make it to Atlanta and back without any worries.
