“Electric Cars Are Better for the Planet – and Often Your Budget, Too“
Interesting study out of MIT on costs and emissions comparisons of EV, PHEV’s and ICE vehicles ranking them in costs and emissions.
Lot of interesting data points. The Model 3 lifetime ownership cost was about the same as a Nissan Altima, they explain why that is.
Overall it is a good pitch for EV/PHEV’s to cut emissions with costs of operations and maintenance much lower for EV’s and lower for PHEV’s along with the necessity of lower emissions.
Study makes a good point about Hybrids and PHEV’s being much better for environment than ICE cars.
“Hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles are about the same price as traditional cars, but cut emissions roughly in half.”
