Tesla saves the environment?

Asked by davidclay123 Aug 13, 2017 at 06:01 AM about the Tesla Model 3

Question type: General

Hi guys,

My wife and I are all agree to buy an environment-friendly car, so we think of
Tesla Model 3. However, I did some research and I was told that Tesla isn't
actually environment-friendly at all.

What do you think about that?

Electrics are mostly hype. Child slave labor for the cobalt in batteries and coal for the electricity.


It all depends on where you get your power from. If you have a solar panned sytem installed this can provide a large amount of energy to the car with no environmental down falls. About her option is simply changing your energy supplier to a green company. And if this is not an option the energy being created by the power plant is still more efficient and less wasteful than the energy being used in a gas car. Yes there are bad sides such as the mines that create the raw materials but that is impossible to avoid in today’s world
