OECD has a new report on EV's. The summary, linked below, asks: Electric Cars: Ready for prime time? Their answer is mixed. For passenger cars, they suggest the extra cost of EV to society may not be worth it. For commercial fleets of vans etc., if they do many miles per day, then EV is cheaper than gaso and does not need to be subsidized. Keep in mind this is for a global audience: USA carbon intensity may be higher than average (for elec power). But isn't EV technology rapidly advancing to close the $$ gaps? They say not as fast as conventional vehicles are getting better. Anyways, see what you think. Full report is referenced so you can see that too. The report surprises some who were not expecting a semi-libertarian nor borderline EV skeptic view from OECD. http://www.internationaltransportforum.org/jtrc/PolicyBriefs/PDFs/2012-06-14.pdf The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international economic organization of 34 countries founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade.
