But despite low gas prices, AAA says demand for electric cars is still robust. More More

The general benefits of all-electric vehicles have been fairly understood for a while now. It’s why there are several federal and state incentives for consumers to buy them and automakers to make them, but now a new study is giving us a more detailed look at the health and climate costs associated with gas-powered cars in the US, and the impact of a transition to a mostly all-electric fleet.
