This is reported by experts from the Northwestern University of the United States.

Scientists from Northwestern University in the United States have calculated how much the country’s government can save annually by replacing cars with a classic internal combustion engine with electric cars. According to experts, now popular cars cause significant harm to human health and the ecology of the planet as a whole, therefore, the abandonment of the extraction of fossil fuels can save the United States up to 70 billion dollars annually.

At the same time, this amount can be saved by replacing 75% of cars. According to scientists, replacing 25% of cars with classic internal combustion engines with electric cars will save the country about $ 17 billion annually. This takes into account that the development of infrastructure for electric vehicles will also require funds.

In addition, according to experts, regular emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere annually cause the premature death of hundreds of thousands of people. In addition, emissions increase the likelihood of death from COVID-19.
