EV operating cost, electric RVs, batteries and tire emissions: Today’s Car News

EVs remain the antidote for high gas prices. Expectations are high for electric RVs, but where will they charge? And the weight of bigger battery packs causes more emissions from a source you might not expect. This and more, here at Green Car Reports. 

Bigger batteries for electric vehicles can boost range, but the latest study from a UK-based independent testing firm suggests the extra weight could greatly boost particulate emissions

—from tires. 

The operating-cost advantages for electric vehicles have grown even stronger amid high gas prices

, and they can now be driven at as little as 15% of the cost of gasoline vehicles per mile, an upd ated report from an EV industry group finds. 

Electric RVs are coming within the next few years—and as a recent study from a leading RV maker suggests, expectations are high for battery electric RVs, verging on impossible. As we’ve underscored in various ways, a whole new series of infrastructure solutions is needed. So who will step up?
