Are Electric Cars Really Green?

Are electric cars greener than conventional gasoline cars? If so, how much greener? What about the CO2 emissions produced during electric cars' production? And where does the electricity that powers electric cars come from? Environmental economist Bjorn Lomborg, director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, examines how environmentally friendly electric cars really are.

So does Leonardo DiCaprio. And many others. The argument goes like this: Regular cars run on gasoline, a fossil fuel that pumps CO2 straight out of the tailpipe and into the atmosphere. Electric cars run on electricity. They don’t burn any gasoline at all. No gas; no CO2. In fact, electric cars are often advertised as creating “zero emissions.” But do they really? Let’s take a closer look. First, there’s the energy needed to produce the car. More than a third of the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used make the car itself, especially the battery. The mining of lithium, for instance, is not a green activity. When an electric car rolls off the production line, it’s already been responsible for more than 25,000 pounds of carbon-dioxide emission. The amount for making a conventional car: just 16,000 pounds. But that’s not the end of the CO2 emissions. Because while it’s true that electric cars don’t run on gasoline, they do run on electricity, which, in the U.S. is often produced by another fossil fuel -- coal. As green venture capitalist Vinod Khosla likes to point out, "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro. So throughout the full life of an electric car, it will emit just three to five tons less CO2. In Europe, on its European Trading System, it currently costs $7 to cut one ton of CO2. So the entire climate benefit of an electric car is about $35. Yet the U.S. federal government essentially provides electric car buyers with a subsidy of up to $7,500. Paying $7,500 for something you could get for $35 is a very poor deal. And that doesn’t include the billions more in federal and state grants, loans and tax write-offs that go directly to battery and electric-car makers The other main benefit from electric cars is supposed to be lower pollution. But remember Vinod Khosla’s observation "Electric cars are coal-powered cars." Yes, it might be powered by coal, proponents will say, but unlike the regular car, coal plant emissions are far away from the city centers where most people live and where damage from air pollution is greatest. However, new research in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that while gasoline cars pollute closer to home, coal-fired power actually pollutes more -- a lot more.

12 of the World's Smallest Cars

From a Record-Breaking Ride to Corbin Sparrow here are 12 of the World's Smallest Cars. Which car would you drive all the time? Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Corbin Sparrow These vehicles became pretty popular in the late 90’s when they were first produced and even made their mark on pop culture in several ways. They chased Austin Powers and Beyonce in the third Austin Powers movie. A fleet of hatchback variants was created for Dominos Pizza that were nicknamed pizza butt. People could order them in a variety of neon colors. Due to several issues, including bad management and supplier issues Corbin filed for bankruptcy in 2003, ending production. The company managed to make 289 Sparrows while they were operating, 100 of them were made with this interesting jelly bean style body. Their 20-kilowatt motor produced the equivalent of around 25 horsepower. Its primitive battery took six hours to charge and had terrible range. They were around ninety-six inches long and 48 inches wide. 5. Buddy From 1991 to 2013 Buddy Electric sold about 1,500 units, nearly 1,100 of which were registered in Norway. The Buddy originated as the Kewet and starting in 2007 the car was manufactured under the name Buddy. Buddy is a basic electric vehicle that has a range of no more than 40 miles and a maximum speed of fifty miles per hour. With a length of only 96 inches, the car is legally allowed to be parked sideways in many jurisdictions. Two Buddy models are available, the ordinary Buddy and the Buddy Cab, which features a folding roof. 4. Smart Fortwo Made as a three-door hatchback or a two door convertible this car has a nine-gallon tank and is a minuscule 106 inches long and 65-75 inches wide. While its price is similar to the failed Mia Electric, it’s a little more practical. It’s zero to 60 speed is a little over ten seconds, and it has a top speed of 95 miles per hour. Daimler AG’s Smart division has been producing the Smart Fortwo since 1998. Newer models of the car have been paired with a lithium-ion battery that makes it very environmentally friendly. 3. BMW Isetta The brilliantly designed 1955 BMW Isetta was the top selling single cylinder car in the world with just over one hundred and sixty thousand units sold and became the first mass-produced vehicle to achieve the incredible gas mileage of 94 miles per gallon. The car was 90 inches long, 55 inches wide and weighed just 770 pounds. The Isetta was originally produced by Italian firm Iso SpA, who had been building refrigerators and small three-wheeled trucks when they decided to make a small car for mass production. The unique, egg-shaped car caused quite a stir when it was introduced to the press in November 1953. Initially, the Isetta was very successful, but sales started to slip thanks to competition from the Fiat 500C and the company’s owner, Renzo Rivolta sold it to BMW. 2. Peel P50 Listed as the smallest production car ever made in the Guinness Book of World Record the Peel P50 is a minuscule 54 inches long and 41 inches wide. The original production model came equipped with a 50 cc engine that sat along the driver in the cabin, which was less than comfortable. Now, however, there are optional electric motors available. The P50 has only one door and one headlight. The cars It also has no reverse gear, you simply have to hop out of the car and do it yourself if needed. The original version was manufactured from 1962 until 1965. Only fifty were produced and of those only twenty-seven are still known to exist. Incredibly, one of those was sold for 176 thousand dollars at an auction in March 2016. Peel Engineering started remanufacturing the P50 with better mechanics, including a reverse gear in 2010 and you can buy a new one to this day for around fifteen thousand bucks. 1. Record-Breaking Ride Sure the Peel P50 is tiny, but it has nothing on this car, which is also in the Guinness Book of Records as the World's Smallest Roadworthy Car. At just 25 inches high 2 feet 1.75 inches wide and 4 feet 1.75 inches long the car is fully driveable, though it tops out at 33 miles per hour. With no suspension the car is scary to drive, even going 30. It’s also not going to take you very far as it’s fuel tank has a total capacity of just a half gallon. It represents the fulfillment of a goal for its creator, Austin Coulson, who had been dreaming of being featured in Guinness for something automotive since he was a child.

Kia announces a hybrid 48-Volt system| Cars.com | Review Car

May 16, 2018 AT 2:32 PM By Joe Lorio Photos By The Manufacturer   Alternative powertrains might not be the first attribute that comes to mind at the mention of Kia, but the Korean brand does build EVs, plug-in hybrids, and traditional hybrid vehicles. Now, in Europe, Kia is adding a fourth electrified powertrain in the form of a 48-volt hybrid-assist system. Dubbed EcoDynamics+ and used in the Sportage, it pairs a diesel engine with a 48-volt electric motor. The system’s Mild Hybrid Starter/Gene...
