I'm not even sure if this is the right place to ask this. But Elon Musk was asked in an interview if EV's are still cleaner even if the source of the energy is traditional carbon burning sources (oil, coal, etc.) and he said it still is due to the energy conversion efficiency of EVs compared with gasoline burning vehicles.
Just a geeky type thing but does anyone actually know the energy conversion rates for an EV like the Model S compared to a traditional gasoline vehicle? Thanks.
