Good for the Environment

One of the common things you will hear about electric cars is that they can benefit the environment. Electric vehicles produce lower emissions through a battery-powered motor.

This leads to fewer lifetime emissions than gas-powered vehicles.

Electric power is renewable energy that has a longer lifecycle than fossil fuels. As more electric vehicles increase in popularity and use this renewable energy, emissions from all vehicles will drop, providing more of a boost to the environment and promoting cleaner driving.

Good for Public Health

Using a traditional, gas-powered vehicle also has an effect on your own life in addition to the planet. These vehicles producing emissions from fossil fuels that can contribute to large amounts of air pollution, which reduces air quality.

Some of these emissions can produce harmful gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and particulate matter that can lead to respiratory diseases. This can affect a large population, as many vehicles travel through high-traffic areas and emit these harmful gases.
