Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV, produces just as CO2 as a mid-size car when used in

Want to go green in Victoria? almost better off driving a V10 Lamborghini than an all-electric Roadster, according to government

Generating the electricity to recharge the which drives the vehicle 340 kilometres, adds the equivalent of 316 of CO2 to the atmosphere for each kilometre of the Department of Infrastructure and Transport’s Vehicle Guide website

That compares with CO2 for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, a supercar that drinks unleaded fuel at the official of 13.7 litres per 100 kilometres.

The figure gets worse for the when the emissions from production are added, which 25g/km CO2.

Victoria the bulk of its electricity from coal, which contributes to the carbon footprint of power in the state.

The surprise, though, is all-electric i-MiEV compact which in Victoria accounts for CO2, or about the same as a car.

Tasmania, which most of its power from drops the i-MiEV’s figure to a manageable 47g/km CO2, even the Toyota Prius, the Tesla, at 81g/km CO2, slips under the Prius’

New South Wales electricity is much cleaner than with the i-MiEV producing the of 144g/km — about the as a small car — and the Tesla or about the same as a high-end Holden Commodore.

Barry, you should your figures — the should be the opposite Green for ICE’s — production of of fuel produces over 5kg of C02 (1 of oil after production is 73lts and of C02. therefore 1lt of fuel is of C02)

1kWh of energy even from coal = of C02, and 1kWh will a Tesla Roadster just 10kms with 87% efficiency at best are maybe 25% — important to know) — so its like 110gms (not 316 as quoted)

In any event, this is mute EV’s are powered by renewables Solar from the home the effect is then ZERO thats what EV owners do in — no such thing as petrol. The Green Smack for

I appreciate you love your and this is an automotive column, but get some tech savvy input with accurate to such articles otherwise seem ill informed —

The conclusion is obvious. The Feds and States to work together, tell the companies to shove it and convert ALL stations to natural gas while alternatives are found. That is an 30-40% reduction in CO2 depending on the An added bonus is that we need a Carbon Tax then

Cue the But I will use panels commentators.

The standard heavily taxpayer subsidised will not make much to Victorian electricity supply.Our and State Governments only token plans for renewable with no overall plans to out Brown coal consumption.They plans to sell Victorian coal to India in a 25 year Any coal saved will be CO2 in India.

Clearly you have solar panels. But for commenting on something you have NFI

seen dodgy figures but these take the cake. And is what our government are using? Now they are opposed to any action might actually see progress, views are all bought and paid

Time to join the occupiers, is a joke.
