If you plug in to charge up your car, what are you actually running on? Gasoline? Well, sometimes.
But in almost all cases, the electricity is provided by burning coal; the next largest category is those who are running electricity provided by burning oil.
Also take into account the massive cost of taxpayer money to build the electric charging stations. We all want off Middle East oil, but why should the taxpayers pay the burdensome costs?
All that said, the cost of replacing the battery pack is so high, it’s said to often be more than the value of the car. And should we get into another major war, batteries have always been the first product to be rationed. There are other problems, but do your homework before being sucked into paying a high price for a car that is not really environmentally friendly in the first place.
