The study focused on air quality in the world’s leader in electric use. It compared emissions carbon dioxide and particulate from gasoline and diesel diesel buses, electric and electric cars in 34 Chinese Particulate matter means bits of acids, chemicals, and metal that can lodge into the lungs.

The research came up with a formula to per-passenger, per-kilometer exposure to and particulate matter for each To measure emissions for electric they studied the power that produce the electricity.

The results? Diesel cars the dirtiest, but electric cars as dirty as diesel buses. cars were next, electric bikes being the of all.

China has an estimated 100 electric bikes purchased in the decade.
