Electric cars are becoming greener to drive: study


WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- A new study from the Union of Concerned Scientists shows electric cars are becoming much greener to drive because the electric grid is much cleaner.

Electric cars reportedly release greenhouse gas emissions equal to a car that gets 80 miles per gallon.

75 percent of Americans also live in places where driving on electricity is better and cleaner than driving on a gasoline car that gets 50 miles per gallon.

Electrek reports that the change from coal to natural gas in various regions helped make driving on electricity much greener.

In 2018, less than one third of electricity comes from burning coal while 10 percent of electricity comes from renewable energies such as solar and wind, according to CleanTechnica.
