Electric vehicles require far less energy to operate than gas-powered cars: 29% less if the electricity comes from burning coal, and 77% less if the electricity is from renewable sources like solar, wind, or hydropower. And of course, EV's charged (and initially constructed) using renewable energy emit zero CO2.

    I think if the price of EV vehicles can be made affordable, many will have a chance to purchase them thus reducing the rate of pollution. The price should be made friendly.

      We need to find a way to make electric vehicles mainstream especially in countries that are most hit by climate change effects. These machines are not common there and if they were, perhaps they could make a difference in the emission numbers

        Great statistics. The problem is that EV cars are too expensive to buy especially in developing nations. They should be made more affordable

          @boniface_kuria Prices are coming down as more companies manufacture them.

            @ted_weber I really hope so because people are willing to shift but they basically cant afford it.
