Electric Vehicle Facts

Click the Myths to expand and reveal the truth behind them.

 

  • Electric Vehicles are not for everybody, one car does not fit all needs.

  • Major automakers have demonstrated fun, powerful, and long lived electric vehicle products already.

  • EV's help with America's growing addiction to oil, since they consume virtually no oil products.

  • According to the American Lung Association and the California Air Resource Board, electric power is a cleaner air alternative to gas and diesel drive trains.

  • Electric cars are the perfect second car for Americans, as 90% of households own more than two car's, and the average Californian commutes 37 miles per day (Data from CARB).

  • Electric car's hold the records for the fastest 1/4 mile time for street legal racers (Wrightspeed holds record's of a 0-60 time of 3 seconds and a standing quarter mile time of 11.5 seconds.

  • Myth: EV's still pollute

    • "Pollution is easier to manage at a central point such as the stacks of power plants rather than from millions of vehicle tail pipes. Many power plants today are being modified to lower emissions and a number of older plants are being retired. Wind-generated power, solar and other forms of renewable energy are pollution free and are becoming more available. The overnight charging of PHEVs matches well with wind-generated electricity (the most abundant green power), the majority of which is produced overnight due to wind patterns."

  • Myth: EV's are slow

    • Electric car's are just like gas car's in this respect.  You cannot generalize that all gas car's are slow by looking at an old Volkswagen Bug.  Electric car's hold places in most street legal drags, and some electric vehicles have top speeds of over 200 miles per hour, the same as the internal combustion engine.

  • Myth: EV's all look weird

    •  The reason this myth has come around is because of the numerous concept car's and the fact that there have only been a few production electric car's.  However, most electric cars are indistinguishable from their counterparts, except for the missing exhaust pipe, silent idle, and often the only give away are the decals some may choose to put on their car.
