    More efficient EVs now available too
    The maps shown above are based the efficiency of the average EV. However, there are now options on the market that are even more efficient. Using one of these more efficient EVs (Hyundai Ioniq BEV, Prius Prime, and Tesla Model 3) means lower emissions. With these cleaner EVs, 99 percent of the country is in a region where electricity emissions would be lower than a 50 MPG gasoline vehicle.

    exciting times!

    nice ev emissions tool in there.

    plugged in my pip and location. one charge = 60mpg gas vehicle or 181 grams of CO2e.

    all electric = 107mpg or 102 grams of CO2e.

    i'm currently driving about 80% ev, so, somewhere in between.

    It is very nice to see the grid continue to get cleaner as well as EVs continue to get more efficient!
