e-ride and the ENVIRONMENT!

  • e-ride electric vehicles produce zero emissions
  • Emissions released by power plants producing electricity for charging electric vehicles creates less than 1/20th the pollution that a comparable gas powered vehicle would produce
  • e-ride maintenance requires no disposal of hazardous materials such as used oil, antifreeze, or other liquids associated with gas-powered vehicles

How can an e-ride Industries Electric vehicle help the environment?

e-ride Industries provides vehicles that seek to reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere by relying on electricity instead of burning gasoline. Electric motors create magnetic fields that spin a rotor which in turn rotates the axle of the car, causing motion. All of this is done without any emission of CO2. Fewer CO2 emissions means fewer greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In the US, cars and other vehicles account for 26% of the country's carbon emissions. If we were to shift to relying on electric cars as our main form of transportation, we could greatly reduce the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere and perhaps minimize its negative effects on us all. Although e-ride vehicles don’t fit into every application, they should help the environment by being a large piece of that solution pie.

Carbon emissions gas vs electric graph

The above graph is showing the difference in levels of hazardous emissions of CO between the average gasoline vehicle, the average deisel vehicle, and Electric Vehicle's (EV's).  (Powerplant in this case is referring to the vehicle's drive and/or power system.
