Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air

efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered
