The electric motor is extremely efficient, 2-5 times better than a diesel engine (up to over 90 % efficiency). Higher efficiency means less energy consumption. Less energy consumption means lower costs and less pollution.
Electric vehicles offer a better work environment for the driver as well as cleaner air and quieter neighborhoods for your customers.
Independent from oil
Electricity can be produced in many ways. That means independence from oil-producing countries, higher security of supply, more stable prices and the possibility for clean, green renewable energy sources. Even if the electricity is produced by burning coal, the electric vehicle is so efficient that it still comes out ahead. Pollutants from one large power plant are also easier to treat than emissions from millions of vehicles. If electric vehicles are run on electricity from solar, wind or hydro, they produce virtually zero pollution.
