Tesla were not environmentally friendly in comparison with conventional carsJune 25, 2018
The American analytical agency Engaged Tracking conducted its own investigation of both the Tesla Model S car and figured out its production. The conclusion was disappointing – the amount of greenhouse gases is not less than that of models with gasoline engines.
According to foreign experts from the analytical agency Engaged Tracking, the generation of electricity for Tesla cars, as well as the process of the production of electric cars, produces as many harmful substances as when using a modern gasoline car.
Note that Tesla is a company engaged in the production and promotion of fully electric cars, as well as developing many technologies in the electrical segment. Previously, its cars were recognized as more environmentally friendly, unlike cars that use conventional fuel, as well as a real breakthrough in the modern automobile industry.
As shown by new research by the US agency – the amount of greenhouse gases in the production of such a car exceeds the damage from the exhaust gases of cars using gasoline.
According to the information provided, it turns out that for the production of electricity for the operation of an electric car in one year, 1,500 kg of carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere, as much as produces carbon dioxide and a modern gasoline car for the same period. Moreover, the production process is also not very environmentally friendly.
In addition, the company reported that similar indicators relate not only to electric cars Tesla. For example, the BMW i3 is only 15% more environmentally friendly than the Tesla Model S.
Thus, electric cars at the moment do not save the planet’s ecology, at least until most power plants switch to renewable energy sources. However, Tesla is also actively developing in this direction.
In the meantime, the founder and head of Tesla company shows in practice its confidence in the success of the company. Elon Musk again bought a large block of shares worth about $ 25 million.
