Are Electric Cars 100% Efficient?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Electric vehicles (EVs) are more efficient than their gasoline-powered counterparts. An EV electric drive system is only responsible for a 15% to 20% energy loss compared to 64% to 75% for a gasoline engine. EVs also use regenerative braking to recapture and reuse energy that normally would be lost in braking and waste no energy idling. See All-Electric Vehicles for details.

Is It Hard to Find Charging Stations for Electric Cars in California?
Depending on where you live, there are a growing amount of electric charging stations across California. As more and more people start to transition to electric vehicles, there will be an ever growing demand and therefore availability of these stations. Currently, there are over 4,500 EV charging stations throughout Los Angeles alone.
