End to End Energy Cycle Efficiency – Do All-Electric Vehicles (BEVs) really Win?

No Comments

“The conclusion is that All-Electric Vehicles (BEVs) beat the fleet average ICE vehicle hands down in every group of states they evaluated, on a full lifecycle emissions basis, and in fact they outperform the Prius (52 mpg (4.5 L/100km)) in most states. In the most populous states, BEVs beat the Prius by a substantial margin. And that result is going to get nothing but better in future.” “overall Prius source to wheels efficiency at 0.8*0.38 = about 30% efficiency. And that’s the best ICE car you can buy…even fueled by a modern gas power plant”

Good analysis and article by Paul Martin, Chemical process development expert, and EV and renewable energy advocate, on all-electric vehicles vs the highest efficiency hybrid vehicle available today.  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/energy-cycle-efficiency-vehicles-does-ev-really-win-paul-martin/

Another good article by Paul Martin which developed some of the analysis data for the above article.  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/so-exactly-how-much-electricity-does-take-produce-gallon-paul-martin/
