Electric Cars: Cost to Drive and Emissions Comparisons of New Vehicle Technology

  1. 1. Electric CarsNew Vehicle Technology, Cost of Driving and Emissions Comparisons<br />3G Mobility, Envisioning the next generation of transportation<br />July 2010<br />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? <br />

  4. 4. Quantifying Electric Car Emissions<br /><ul><li>Are electric vehicles really zero emissions?
  5. 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. 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. 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.</li></ul>How much CO2? Per gallon? Per kWh?<br /><ul><li>Electricity: EPA/DOE estimates about 1.34 pounds of CO2 per kWh</li></ul>The 1.34 is a national average. It depends on the source of electricity. Range of examples: <br /><ul><li> Gasoline: EPA/DOE estimates 19.4 to 20.0 lbs of CO2 per gallon</li></ul>4<br />

  9. 9. National average electricity price: $0.1086 per kWh
  10. 10. National average gasoline price: $2.75 per gallon</li></ul>5<br />Marcus Bowman, 3G Mobility, Envisioning the next generation of transportation<br />
