  •  EV's CO2 math doesn't work with coal electric (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Our Prius does better environmentally than any EV and is more practical, because the electric plant ~2 miles from my house is an old coal burner.  When I work through the efficiencies, the Prius emits less CO2 per mile than an EV would.  CO2 Efficiency of old coal plants is really awful.

    Longterm we (everyone) will have to move to electric vehicles, but gasoline is a better environmental fit for some of us in the interim.
