The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has been producing clear, credible analysis of EV emissions for years, and earlier this year they updated their numbers. Using newly released 2018 data the headline for these technologies keep getting much clearer: Are Electric Vehicles Really Better for the Climate? Yes. Here’s why. Here’s the key takeaway: Driving the average EV produces no tailpipe pollution, and CO2 pollution produced in power production is equal to a gasoline vehicle that gets 88 miles per gallon (mpg) fuel economy. At 85 mpg equivalent, an EV is far cleaner than a local 25mpg gasoline vehicle. This information is updated regularly so remember to check back at the Union of Concerned Scientists for more info.
