Epoch Times is taking a look at each of the major options for going green while shopping for your next vehicle.

Here’s a look at the pros and cons of electric cars, with some savings tips along the way.

Still to come: A look at hybrid cars, and cars that run on natural gas, biogas, hydrogen, and even coffee!


1. The electric car does not emit pollutants. It doesn’t even have a tailpipe.

2. One of the best things about electric motors is they are quiet as a mouse.

3. Electrical energy is stored in batteries. While this energy can come from a power outlet, the greenest way is to power the battery with solar panels on the car.

4. It can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (although, it’s not quite that simple. It depends on how the electricity is produced in your region; see more under “Cons” below).
