What are the global warming emissions of electric cars on a life cycle basis—from the manufacturing of the vehicle’s body and battery to its ultimate disposal and reuse?

They found that battery electric cars generate half the emissions of the average comparable gasoline car, even when pollution from battery manufacturing is accounted for. Watch this new video that explains the benefits of EVs:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9m9WDxmSN8&feature=youtu.be
