Opinion Desk: This Is The Biggest Benefit Of Electric Vehicles

As I admired the ride of the 2012 Ford Focus Electric, I couldn’t help but think: “What if all cars on the road today were powered solely by electricity?” And then it hit me: EVs are the only products in the world that have the opportunity to get cleaner the longer you own them.

In other words, as automobiles the world over (ultimately) transition to electric propulsion — and all indicators point to that being the case over the next several decades — there is a high possibility that the source of that power will become cleaner, as well. So instead of (dirty) coal-burning power plants, our electricity will end up coming from clean sources such as wind, solar, and natural gas, among others. It’s just a matter of us getting to the point of driving electric and then cleaning up at the source.
