Abstract

According to the calculation of the actual efficiency of electric vehicles, it can be found that the electric vehicles cannot save energy as what the companies have promised in their advertisements. Their incompetence is especially obvious when compared with the diesel-powered vehicles and gasoline-powered vehicles that are widely used in China. In the process of discussing the performance and the energy consumption of electric vehicles, doubts are raised whether electric vehicles are environmentally-friendly under the circumstance of the Chinese electric power system.
