    an EV and the environment blog

    You might find this blog interesting. It compares ICE vehicles with their all-electric versions when it comes to creating environmental pollution. (Don't forget to check out the comments. It didn't take long for the "haters" to start commenting.)

    "the Tesla Model 3 has a remarkable drag coefficient of just 0.23. I don’t have a specific figure for the SR/F but even the most aerodynamic racing motorcycle with a rider in a full tuck has a Cd of about 0.6!"

    The answer to that has been around as long as motorcycles.
