New Green NCAP emissions ratings cast doubt on electric cars’ green credentials

Post by mab01uk »

New ratings comparing whole life car emissions show little difference between many electric and internal combustion engined cars.

After listening to that programme, I've decided to take the electric route. As soon as Eddie Stobart takes delivery of its electric trucks and the Army gets its electrically powered troop transports, I'll get my electric car

According to Shaw Taylor in 1976 2they" were saying electric cars were to have a top speed of 80mph and a range of 500 miles by 1986.
