=300 miles but in reality it's 10 gallons of gas as noted by the CX-3 which is = to the mustang version..



also btw the part were it says "Fossil Fuel Free" is a joke it should just say powered by Fossil Fuel Coal,CNG and nuclear ( are types of fossil fuels)




so unless your generating the power from wind or solar on site to the "electric car" you are still generating emissions.. that will never be off set..


unless you live near a hydro power plant it's not fossil free or negative offset
It is far easier to control emissions and more thermally efficient to generate power with turbines rather than in the individual vehicles. That is the main benefit of electric power. Given the efficiency of power transmission, it is largely irrelevant how far the charging point is from the location of the generation.
