Already, electric and hybrid cars are surpassing gas engine cars in not only miles per gallon and sustainability, but also affordability.

For example, the 2013 electric Nissan Leaf runs costs from $28,800 to $34,840. This affordable midsize car gets 75 miles on a full charge and has a refuel time of just seven hours at 240 volts.

Infographic: The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations

Infographic:   The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations | Sustain Our Earth |

There are more benefits to driving a solar charged vehicle than meets the eye.


As technology for these vehicles improve, so will their travel distance and accessibility, as charging stations are becoming more common, with locations at airports, malls, and even college campuses.

Electric vehicles are good for the environment, and recent studies have shown they also play a role in our health. 


This infographic outlines their benefits, compares emissions from the different types of charging stations, maps locations across the US, and summarizes the positive impact electric vehincles have on the economy, environment and our health.

Tesla has grabbed the moral environmental high ground with the ambition to have these Solar Powered SuperChargers installed throughout the U.S.A. and then in 2013 - Asia and Europe
