With the new innovations being brought upon eco-friendly cars, we question which is better, electric or gasoline? The quick answer everyone falls back to is that electric cars are more expensive, or that they do not cover long distances as well as gas operated engines. The real answer however, is no and no.
First, a Fortune.com article declares that the average cost for maintenance of electric cars is lower than gasoline ones. This is due to the fact that electric cars do not have fuel powered engines, they do not consume a ton of energy output on heating. In addition, they do not need oil. Another aspect is, it’s much cheaper to charge an electric car than it is to refill a gas car. Based on Aol.com it cost 3.65$per gallon for gas and for electric only 1.14$ per gallon. Especially with the ever-rising fuel prices and carbon taxes, electric might be the only way out of this oil taxation. (Rob Carrick)
Another great point is, green cars do not pollute as much as regular ones. Noise pollution will be diminished a lot because their motors do not produce sound. As well, pollution is diminished because fuel cars leak from time to time, oil, and rarely gas. Therefore, electric car cuts out all damages caused by fuel cars.
Overall, electric cars will not only save the users from pulling out their wallets, but also people’s sleep in industrialized areas. And after all, who doesn’t want a ninja car that saves money and the environment.
