The electric car is already being sold as a climate saver and environmental car. With the current mix of electricity, the industry association BDEW has determined that an electric car produces 60 percent less CO2 when driving than a conventional car. When using pure green electricity, the environmental balance is even better. If you consider the pure energy consumption per 100 kilometers driven, the electric motor with its much better efficiency also performs better. From this point of view, a swift switch to the electric car is currently being proclaimed by the environmental associations.
