Your comments make no sense. Everyone I talk to about BEVs or driving a Volt on the battery alone bring up coal produced electricity. And they think the Tesla being all electric can only run on coal.
Since electric cars are so efficient (as are large coal power plants presumably) I'd be curious to know just how much coal is needed to propel a Volt or a Model S... eg. x miles per lump of coal :tongue:
I actually did this calculation last year: ... How Much Was Consumed? - fan of the underdog | Seeking Alpha
Essentially: 2000 lbs of coal = 2460 KWh = 7257 (assuming 2.95 miles/kwh) ... ~3.6285 miles per pound of coal.
That's funny that we were posting at the same time. Using my numbers (5,500 miles/2,000 lbs), I get 2.75 miles per pound of coal, which is about 25% fewer miles than your calculation. Did you happen to take into account transmission and charger losses? I calculated about 10% for each, I think.
