Emissions from cars and trucks are not only bad for our planet, they’re bad for our health. Air pollutants from gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles cause asthma, bronchitis, cancer, and premature death.
Electric vehicles have a smaller carbon footprint than gasoline powered cars, no matter where your electricity comes from.
