Do You Know That Electric Vehicles Are Climate-FriendlyMay 17th, 2012 | Posted by in Eco-Friendly
If you are considering to buy electric car, then the hybrid electric Toyota Prius produces less greenhouse gas pollution than the all-electric Nissan Leaf, because when you plug in a Leaf to recharge, you are tapping into electricity generated largely by burning coal and natural gas in those states. The Prius does better than the Leaf in 36 states, the report says. Even the conventionally powered Hyundai Accent beats the Leaf in 12 states. California will buy more plug-in cars than the next five states combined, and its grid is quite clean, so this is not a worry in the biggest market for electric cars. . If you are live in the coal-dependent Midwest, with no public charging grid anywhere near, maybe it's not your best choice right now.
