Reading the latest issue of Newsweek and this really makes sense:
I have never heard people questioning whether electric cars are really environmentally friendlier, questioning how the electricity that would run the cars is produced. This is a pertinent question.
There is also the question of wastage as other forms of fuel are combusted to produce electricity which would in turn run the electric cars. How much is wasted in the conversion process? Would it not be better to build a more efficient internal combustion engine?
I am not an engineer but this idea makes a lot of sense to me. Any thoughts?
