ELECTRIC VEHICLES (EVs) The Impending Big Auto/Oil Implosion https://victoriaevclub.com/the-impending-big-auto-oil-implosion/ https://seekingalpha.com/author/ross-tessien#regular_articles City of Ames - Electric Vehicles https://www.cityofames.org/government/departments-divisions-a-h/electric/energy-info/electric-vehicles Gasoline-powered vehicles are only able to convert about 17-21% of the energy in the gas tank to power at the wheels. EVs, which are more efficient, use more than 77% of the electricity they get from the grid to get you where you need to go. EVs have no direct emissions, which improves the air quality in our communities. When you calculate the emissions from the generation of the electricity that powers an EV, it is still responsible for less than half the emissions of a similar gasoline vehicle. EVs are responsible for more emissions per vehicles in manufacturing, but the overall cradle-to-grave emissions of EVs are still less than half of those emitted by conventional gasoline vehicles.

What sort of range should I expect from a certain car? The list of possible questions related to electric cars goes on and on. Luckily, we've assembled most of the vital details for every electric car sold in the U.S. today. US Electric Car Prices: Cheapest To Most Expensive (Feb 7, 2022) https://insideevs.com/news/565883/electric-car-prices-us-20220207/ All-Electric Cars Listed By EPA Range From Lowest To Highest https://insideevs.com/news/534024/bev-epa-range-comparison-september2021/ What's The Real World Highway Range Of Today's Electric Cars? We Test To Find Out https://insideevs.com/reviews/443791/ev-range-test-results/ How far an electric vehicle goes on a single charge depends on a lot of factors, including speed, temperature, topography, and other traffic conditions. This is why government-backed range ratings like the EPA and WLTP use are really just an estimate of what an EV owner can expect in a combination of city and highway driving in mostly favorable, albeit not ideal, ambient temperatures. The real world is entirely different, though, which is why InsideEVs conducts its own EV range tests at a constant speed of 70 miles per hour.

We also test them using a 115-mile real-world test loop of city streets, freeways and winding canyons. The data we gather results in our ratings. They’re based on 30-plus scores that cover performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility and value.

HYDROGEN FUEL CELL VEHICLES (FCVs) Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles (EPA) https://www.epa.gov/greenvehicles/hydrogen-fuel-cell-vehicles Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCVs) are similar to electric vehicles (EVs) in that they use an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine to power the wheels. However, while EVs run on batteries that must be plugged in to recharge, FCVs generate their electricity onboard. In a fuel cell, hydrogen (H2) gas from the vehicle’s fuel tank combines with oxygen (O2) from the air to generate electricity with only water and heat as byproducts of the process.
