Not just emissions, regular cars make far more waste than electric cars: analysis

Mar 01, 2021 18:44 IST | By Editorji News Desk

An analysis by Transport & Environment (T&E) group has found that cars operated on fossil fuels waste 'hundreds of times more raw material' than their electric battery-operated counterparts.

The resource calculation based on cars relative to their weight shows that it is at least 300 times more resource-intensive to build oil-fuelled cars.

T&E calculations suggest that battery-electric cars will use 58% less energy than a petrol car over its lifetime and emit 64% less carbon dioxide, reports The Guardian.
