Electric cars have no tailpipes, which means they produce no emissions, and they leave a smaller carbon footprint than gasoline and diesel engines. Electric cars run quietly, and although they cost more than other vehicles, they are cheaper to run, as an electric charge costs less than gasoline.
The owner of an electric car spends a few seconds plugging the car into a charging device, and the next morning the car is ready to drive about 80 to 100 miles. The scarcity of public charging outlets as of 2015 means that the owner must carefully schedule trips to accommodate recharges. A mobile app lets drivers locate nearby public chargers, public quick chargers and in-use charging stations.
