So, Emission-Free Electric Cars…Right?
Ah, yes, the dream of emission-free electric cars will save the world. But wait. Are they emission free? Well, not if the electricity used to recharge them comes from coal-fired power plants. In that case, an electric car is actually a coal-burning car. An electric car is only emission-free and cheap to operate, if the electricity to recharge it is generated at a nuclear power plant.
