Electricity is a form of renewable energy, so you won’t be expending limited resources, like fossil fuels, to power your electric vehicle. And even when you take the electricity generation into account, EVs are still greener than petrol or diesel cars. Plug-in hybrids produce significantly less greenhouse gas exhaust emissions as well, and pure EVs don’t produce any emissions at all. So, switching to an electric vehicle definitely helps you reduce your carbon footprint, which is good for the planet. You can also recycle the engine (or battery) of an electric car, which reduces the need for production – which in turn lowers the overall damage done to the environment. Also, more eco-friendly production methods and materials make some EVs even more attractive.
