Quantitative indicators of the environmental safety of an electric car depend on which country and what energy the car is fueled with. The main advantage of this type of transport is the absence of harmful emissions.
British scientists analyzed that in different countries there is a difference in using electric vehicles. For example, in a country that uses combined energy sources (gas, nuclear energy, oil, coal), pollution from electric vehicles is 50% less. In coal-dominated China, emission reductions are modest, around 15%.
In the world, the share of electric vehicles is still small to bring tangible benefits to the environment, but the trend shows that the use of this type of vehicle is actively increasing. In this regard, manufacturers are increasing the production of Tesla cars.
For the foreseeable future, a decrease in the number of coal-fired power plants and an increase in the use of electric vehicles will lead to a marked reduction in atmospheric pollution. Tesla will be of particular benefit in states where wind and solar energy are exploited. Cars, seasoned with solar energy, becomes cleaner by 11 times, and windy, 85 times.
