Myth

Switching to EV creates the same amount of emission as there will need to generate more electricity.

Fact

An Electric Vehicle emits less carbon dioxide from electricity than the CO2 pollution from the conventional car with an internal combustion engine.

Myth

Electric Vehicle batteries creates a recycle problem.

Fact

The batteries made of lithium-ion will have more value and it is recyclable metals. It can be recycled for the production of alloy that is later refined to cobalt, nickel and other valuable metals and special grades of concrete.
