Are Electric Cars better for the environment?

Spread the love

The question if electric cars are good for the environment or not is the most important question of todays’ car industry: most people assert that EV’s are better for the environment in comparison to petrol vehicles, but some people claim that EVs would make it even worst if we all start using them. The main concern about EVs is that if EVs would dominate the market, then our electricity demand would increase so much, that our renewable energy sources (wind, solar, hydro) would not supply the extra demand and therefore we would be forced to use additional non-renewable energy sources i.e. burn more fossil fuels. Other concerns are in regard to disposal of the EV car batteries, and the need to mine heavy metals.
