Some people state that electric vehicles (EV) are green, some of them state that they are not. Who is right?
Why some people considered EV are not green? Well total emissions (TE) of the car are calculated like this: production emissions, emissions during usage, and utilization emissions. For EV first and last are quite high and that allows these people to state that EV are not that green. Also, they stated that most electricity generation produces emissions as well. They also stated that production of solar panels are quite dirty as well if you state that you are using solar panel to charge you EV.
Let’s assume that TE of EV is higher than normal car. Should we stop using
One thing I don’t understand about electric car is that most of them looks simply ugly.
Let’s take first Toyota Prius for example. It is hybrid car and looks like designers would like to make something “futuristic” and not typical. I don’t understand why they just didn’t use normal sedan shape or in case of hatchback use nicely looking one? And last Prius is even uglier than before.

And another example is BWM i3. Another great example of
