Which Is The Most Energy / Environmentally Efficient Car?
Phew, now the Carbon Tax debate has run its course, I want to bring you back to more mundane but fundamental matters - which I hope you can help me with.
I saw reports in the press a while ago that getting China to adopt electric cars would increase global pollution compared to gasoline powered cars as the power required would be generated by coal fired powerstations which were less efficient than todays modern gasoline engines. This got me thinking that by looking at things at the micro level we sometime miss the big picture.
So I would appreciate your input on which is the most energy efficient and environmentally efficient car between: Diesel cars, Gasoline cars, Hybrids and Electric cars?
