ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Are electric cars better for the environment?

According to official research, electric cars are better for the environment than combustion-engine vehicles. That’s primarily because there are zero tailpipe emissions, but there are additional waste-reduction benefits of EVs – both direct and indirect. 

For example, Model 3 uses a battery that lasts 10-20 years and is produced at the Tesla Gigafactory in Sparks, NV, which will be entirely powered by renewable energy once fully complete.

 
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Do electric cars use oil?

Electric cars don’t use conventional engines so don’t need any oil. Rather, they use electric motors that are powered by batteries which can be recharged at a designated electric vehicle charging station.

Along with not requiring oil and oil filter changes, EVs don’t need new spark plugs or fuel filters, which further helps the environment by reducing waste.

INFORMATION

Do electric cars have transmissions?

Electric vehicles contain an automatic gearbox, but not in the conventional sense, as it is a single-speed transmission. In an EV, the transmission takes power from the motor and transfers it to the wheels, driving and rotating them. This power, known as torque, is immediately available, eliminating the need for the car to warm up or idle and significantly reducing emissions.
