Are electric cars good for the environment ?

Electric vehicles help reduce this threat because almost electricity is produced from domestic sources including coal, nuclear, natural gas and renewable sources. Electric vehicles can also reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change and smog, improving public health and reducing ecological damage.

On the other hand, despite also having chemically stored energy electric cars release it electrochemically without any kind of combustion thanks to lithium ion batteries. This means that there is no fuel being burned and therefore no air pollution through carbon dioxide happening while driving.

The process of making them is similarly harmful to the environment as manufacturing other cars. This makes electric cars still much much better. Even though they do use electricity even dirty sources of electricity are many times more efficient and less harmful than combustion engines.

A clean environment ensures the continual existence and survival of all life on Earth. Cleaning the environment reduces pollution, protects unique ecosystems, prevents the extinction of endangered species and conserves resources, such as water, land and air.
