Разница в эффективности обычной и электромашины
“A conventional internal combustion car loses most of the energy produced by burning gasoline through waste heat and mechanical inefficiency, using about 20 percent to move the vehicle. The inefficiency is compounded because that remaining 20 percent is expended on moving 4,000 pounds of metal in addition to the human driver. So only about 1 percent of a car’s gasoline cost is actually involved in moving the person inside. (By way of comparison, a modern all-electric vehicle wastes only about 10 percent of its energy, using about 90 percent to move the car. Electric motors are vastly more efficient.)”
