    How much emissions are there when driving an electric car? How does it compare with a traditional gasoline-powered vehicle and hybrid cars? Are electric cars cheaper to drive?

  • 4. Quantifying Electric Car Emissions
    • Are electric vehicles really zero emissions?
    • 5. YES, absolutely they are while driving on the road. There are no emissions emitted because it uses a battery for power. Stand behind an electric car and inhale. Nothing.
    • 6. Environmentalists hurt their own cause by insisting auto manufacturers must admit that electric cars do cause emissions at the source of electricity generation, such as coal, natural gas, etc.
    • 7. Regarding source, it depends on your location and power provider. Some electric cars can be driven in states where there are no emissions– at the power plant or on the road. See below.
    How much CO2? Per gallon? Per kWh?
    • Electricity: EPA/DOE estimates about 1.34 pounds of CO2 per kWh
    The 1.34 is a national average. It depends on the source of electricity. Range of examples:
    • Gasoline: EPA/DOE estimates 19.4 to 20.0 lbs of CO2 per gallon

  • 8. Electric Cars vs. Gasoline Vehicles: Emissions from, and Cost for, Driving 100 miles
    Emissions: Pounds of CO2 per 100 miles of Driving
    Baselines:
    • Based on 100 miles of driving
    • 9. National average electricity price: $0.1086 per kWh
    • 10. National average gasoline price: $2.75 per gallon

    Annual metric tons of CO2 emissions per ~12,000 miles
    Average of Existing Fleet (1970-2007); Selected Vehicles (2010-2011)
