The electric car is, was, and will ever be “the car of the future.”
Great post in the Comments section at PJTV. (Also, nfn, love the Commenter’s handle.)
You can think of the Volt as the ultimate in flex-fuel. It runs 30% on coal, 40% on natural gas, 9% each for nuclear and hydropower. Of course, the overhead losses in generation, distribution, conversion, and storage are immense.
It is also worth noting that the current Administration is against coal, natural gas, nuclear power and dams.
