Re: electricty is so clean right
1) Most countries use a mix of nuclear, conventional and renewables. The cleaner the mix the cleaner the electric car is.
2) Improving the mix makes any existing electric car better. Petrol/Diesel engines never improve other than by replacing the vehicle.
3) EVs are a great way of soaking up surplus power from renewables when they are on stream, you store the energy in the battery, and many EVs make for large scale.
4) The pollution happens at the power station, which can be out in the countryside, rather than in the middle of a city, where it is bad for the health of those living/working there. Its also easier to clean up emissions in a large scale fixed plant than in the exhausts of thousands of mobile IC units.
