Ok: not a car pic for an example, but it makes my point.

EV’s must not fall into the trap of calling themselves zero emissions as it depends on where the electricity comes from. If you know the power cane from a wind farm or solar farm: all good. Otherwise marginal grid power is gas or coal so it’s not a zero emission car.

And let’s not confuse tailpipe emissions like NOx and SOx and particulate matter with carbon dioxide equivalent or green house gas emissions.

EV’s offer zero tailpipe emissions. Let’s be clear about the difference and make sure we understand that some petrol cars running on low carbon sustainable fuels can offer lower carbon emissions than an EV!!
