Re: EV pollution by geographic location

This is 60% higher, or 160% of the EPA value NOT 55% of the EPA rating. I don't know where you are getting that number from. My full charge miles remaining typically varies from about 110 miles to 120 miles.

Indeed - I meant to write [more]

Re: EV pollution by geographic location

How many car models (including and excluding hybrids) do you think have a large chunk (even 5 or 10%) owners of them getting nearly 2x the EPA numbers. Give me one example.

Re: EV pollution by geographic location

This is for the most part just as true for gasoline cars as for EVs.

Indeed, but that's the point for some of these things. It is true that if someone is buying a range-limited EV (like the Leaf), they're unlikely to need to drive at [more]

Re: I still don't get it

It does not affect you if you are not gay.

It should be noted that people will sometimes care very deeply about things that don't directly affect them - on all sides of the political spectrum.

Re: EV pollution by geographic location

These studies pretend to use the efficiency of EVs. And they use the miles per kwh...probably as per the EPA tests. These numbers are way off for EVs traveling at relatively low speeds...but a factor of, probably up to 2x.
