Based on the data provided here, that's too general a statement... Electric cars are really multi-fuel vehicles:
  • coal powered
  • natural gas powered
  • hydroelectric powered
  • solar powered
  • wind powered
  • etc
... depending on where you live and how the electricity used to charge the vehicle is generated... and without any modifications to the vehicle, it's possible to go immediately from coal powered to solar powered (or vice versa!)
