The electric car requires NO GAS STATION, it is charged using electricity. The electric car has no tailpipe emissions, you do not need to drive your car to a gas station - you can charge it in your own home. In areas with a stronger renewable energy source, such as wind, hydro and solar, the benefits are even greater.
