    How much more economically friendly are electric vehicles?

    I was just thinking about electric vehicles. How much better is it really for the environment to use electric vehicles. Obviously, you stop the exhaust, but you still are using electricity to power the vehicle. This would increase demand for electricity, therefore building more coal/nuclear power plants which in turn pollute the air. So many people are striving for electric power, but is it really worth it???

    Also consider all of the energy used in creating the vehicle. If EV's are tiny and not durable and only last five years, it's another drain on the environment. It would be better for people to keep their cars for 15 or 20 years.

    Economically friendly or environmentally friendly? It seems you are more interested in the inter-relationship between more demand for electricity and how that electricity is generated?

    Sorry to answer that question with a question, but maybe you could further define.
